Description: Fluid Extract of Horsetail, Equisetum arvense, in 30% ethanol and purified water.

Traditional Use: The medicinal use of Horsetail dates back to ancient Greek and Roman times. The Greeks used this herb to speed up wound healing, staunch bleeding and as a diuretic. 

It was also a favourite of the Native Americans who used Horsetail tea as a diuretic and as a cough remedy for horses. The Cherokee and Chippewa tribes used it as a kidney tonic and to treat painful urination.

According to Nicholas Culpeper, the famous 17th century herbalist, astrologer and botanist, "It stays all sorts of lasks and fluxes in man or woman, and bloody urine; and heals also not only the inward ulcers, and the excoriation of the entrails, bladder, but all other sorts of foul, moist and running ulcers, and soon solders together the tops of green wounds. It cures all ruptures in children."

Modern research findings are backing the traditional use of Equisetum but the limited number of studies and interest in natural medicines remain problematic. Studies have demonstrated multiple beneficial effects in reduction of swelling and inflammation (due to diuretic action with direct immunomodulating activity in rheumatoid arthritis), reduction of blood sugar levels in type 2 diabetes, potential to prevent and eliminate kidney stones and topical wound healing effect. Active constituents of this herb have regenerative effect on bone, skin, hair and nail cells and the potential to restore these tissues to health.

For maximal therapeutic results, modern herbalists use blend of herbs with multiple beneficial effects. Horsetail is a common ingredient in herbal blends targetting inflammation, rheumatoid disease, kidney stones and prostate problems.
