What is Horsetail?

Horsetail was traditionally used as a diuretic in spring tonics.  Spring tonic herbal combinations provide a gentle cleanse of the body as it changes from the winter mode of storage and hibernation to the vital and energetic warm seasons.  Horsetail also contains a significant amount of silica, which is considered an essential trace mineral for human health. Horsetail is commonly recommended by natural health care practitioners for support of bone and connective tissue, osteoporosis, poor growth of hair, skin and nails and swelling. 


Silica forms structural components of bone and connective tissue, such as collagen.  It is especially needed during the early phase of bone mineralization and is found in high concentrations in the bony growth plates. It also forms elastin, a connective tissue that is responsible for the elasticity of connective tissue found in the skin, lungs and blood vessels.  Silica levels decline with age and a deficiency of silica may lead to degeneration of the vessels, bones and connective tissue that is commonly seen in the elderly.

Skin Health

The skin is the largest organ in the body.  It has several important functions.  It acts as a barrier to the external environment including harmful microbes, chemicals and radiation.  It allows the exchange of water and some nutrients.  It can eliminate toxins, minerals and other substances that have built up inside the body

Skin is made up of several layers.  The epidermal outer layer contains keratinized skin cells.  It is the fibrous, protective shield for the body.  The epidermis is firmly attached to inner layers of irregular connective tissue, the dermis.  The dermis contains collagen, the structural support, and elastin, the stretchy support.  Only the dermis has blood supply, nutrients reach the outer skin layers only by diffusion.

Free radicals are unstable molecules that in their bid to become more stable must bump into healthy cells and cause damage.  This can cause cell death, alterations in genetic material and autoimmune reactions to damaged cells.  Ultraviolet radiation from the sun is the major contributor of free radicals that build up in the skin.
