This well-known perennial herb grows in moist or sandy soil in the Northern Hemisphere. Its name is derived from its creeping, stringy root system. The plant undergoes two growth cycles. The first is a spike, followed by an eighteen-inch tall stem containing numerous small whorls. Horsetail-like plants date back to prehistoric days and have been used for a variety of reasons since the Middle Ages. Everything from scrubbing iron pots to skin issues. Horsetail is also known as bottlebrush, scouring rush and shave grass. Its botanical name is equisetum arvense. ¿
Silica for healthy protein and collagen: It is believed no other herb comes close to the silica levels found in horsetail. Silica helps strengthen protein to keep connective tissues healthy, especially collagen. It also has been prized for joint, bone and ligament health. Today horsetail is often found in nail strengtheners, hair boosting shampoos and conditioners, skin creams, and bone supporting supplements. ¿
