Horsetail 500mg comes from the springtime European Horsetail plant. This plant is a rich, natural source of silica, with the highest bioavailability and assimilation in the body.
Silica is the most active component of collagen which acts as a binding agent that keeps our cells ‘glued’ together. Sufficient silica levels in the body help skin stay soft and elastic, eyes sparkle, hair shine, and bones and teeth remain strong.
Horsetail… The Easily Absorbed Form of Silica
Widely found in nature, silica is better absorbed in an organic form such as that found in the herb horsetail (used in Horsetail 500mg).
Healthy Nails and Hair
Silica is a constituent of bone, tissues, organs, the sheathing around nerves, hair, nails and skin.
The silica in horsetail strengthens nails and hair and is especially good for split ends. This herb helps eliminate excess oil from the skin and hair and is believed to make individual hair strands stronger, thicker and more resilient.
Horsetail facilitates the absorption of calcium which nourishes nail, skin and hair and strengthens bones. It has been suggested that horsetail may be of some use in the treatment of brittle nails.
Horsetail helps the body utilize and hold calcium to maintain healthy bones and hence, may be beneficial in helping to prevent osteoporosis. The silica contained in horsetail is highly absorbable and is used to promote bone health and collagen formation. This is especially important for menopausal women who are at risk of osteoporosis and signs of ageing such as the wrinkling of skin.
