Horsetail Extract for Arthritis, Gout, Emphysema and Inflammation

Horsetail herb (shavegrass) is the best source of silica, provides help with arthritis, gout, inflammation, emphysema and healthy hair and nails.

Horsetail (Equisetum arvense) helps to repair lung tissue for bronchitis, emphysema and lung disease.

Emphysema and chronic bronchitis frequently co-exist together to comprise chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Emphysema causes a loss of elasticity in the walls of the small air sacs in your lungs. This loss of elasticity contributes to the narrowing of the airways.

Horsetail is an essential herb for those who find that their hair and nails are suffering during menopause or postnatally.

Horsetail is high in silica, as we age we lose much of our natural silica, and our joints become stiff. Taking four Horsetail capsules each day will supply this missing silica. One should feel more agile and loose within three weeks.

Horsetail contains up to 10-percent silica, an organic form of the mineral silicon. Silicon is required for development of connective tissue such as bones, cartilage, and the membranes around joints. It is also essential for calcium absorption, which is important for bone density. It is necessary to the proper function of the enzyme prolyhydroxylase, which supports formation of collagen in bone, cartilage, and connective tissue. Horsetail also contains calcium and trace minerals and is supportive for people with osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and psoriatic arthritis.

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) causes the membranes around the joints, which hold lubricating fluid, to deteriorate. Osteoporosis occurs when bone tissue becomes porous and brittle and breaks easily. The important tissues in bone and joint diseases are connective tissues. This includes bone, cartilage, tendons, ligaments and membranes. An important component of all connective tissue is a substance called collagen, which keeps it strong.

The herb Horsetail helps calcium work better in the body. It is well known for its strengthening of finger nails and preventing split ends in our hair. It will increase the flow of urine and help hold the good calcium in the body. It helps the prostate by shrinking inflamed mucosal tissue, as it does in other tissue in the body. Taking Horsetail will help fractured and broken bones heal faster.

Horsetail is very good for eyes, ears, nose and throat, helps coagulation, and glandular disorders. Horsetail helps diabetes, arthritis, kidney stones, intestinal bleeding, nervous tension, nose bleeds, parasites, urinary ulcers, and suppressed urination.

Horsetail is a strong astringent and is used for both internal and external wounds. It has a diuretic effect and helpful in kidney infection, gravel, and dropsy.
