What is Horsetail?

The name horsetail can be misleading. Swanson Horsetail (Natural Silica) is far less the hairs normally found sprouting from an equine's rear; far more a plant or weed normally found growing wild across North America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia. In fact, it is descended from gargantuan, tree-like plants which lived through the Paleozoic era.

Its name Equisetum Arvense comes from Equus (horse) and Seta (bristle) and it has been known about for a very long time. Perhaps because its other known species are actually toxic, there has always been a certain reticence towards this herbaceous, perennial plant.

Traditionally used externally, it has been best known historically as a topical treatment used to strengthen fingernails, treat chilblains and heal wounds. And this, perhaps is the crux of it - because, unbeknownst to our ancestors, Horsetail is full of Silica - and Silica can do us and our bones, nails and hair a world of good.


What is Horsetail used for?

Swanson Horsetail (Natural Silica) - as you may have guessed - has one particularly special active ingredient, Silica. This particularly interesting chemical can actually play a very important role in our body's bone growth and development.

By encouraging calcium absorption and forcing it to bind with our bones, Swanson Horsetail (Natural Silica) will actually induce bone cell growth and even help to build stronger tendons.

That's why it has been traditionally administered to help our bones recover more quickly from fractures. It's also why some people are turning to Swanson Horsetail (Natural Silica) to help with brittle or soft bone conditions like osteoporosis.

Horsetail has another quality too - it is a very powerful diuretic. So much so that it has been suggested that it may be able to assist with the passing of kidney stones and, in a small and careful dosage could even be used to aid with weight loss.
