Horsetail Extract Powder
What is Horsetail?
Horsetail is a unique type of grass plant in the Equisetaceae family — the only family of plants that reproduce using spores rather than seeds. Horsetail is a living fossil, being the only living genus of the entire class Equisetopsida in the world. Equisetopsida dominated the forests of the late Paleozoic era. Horsetail contains large amounts of silica which give it an abrasive texture. Horsetail has been used for centuries by indigenous peoples for a variety of uses ranging from sandpaper to folk remedies.
Horsetail is most commonly used to help fortify the bones. Horsetail is rich in antioxidants and may have anti-inflammatory properties. It may also help support the joints and act as a diuretic.
