Background



Horsetail is a bushy perennial herb native to the northern hemisphere areas of Asia, Europe, North America, and North Africa. There are over 20 species of horsetail grown worldwide. Field horsetail (Equisetum arvense) is the most common specie used for medicinal purposes. The sterile and young vegetative shoots of horsetail are mainly harvested in spring or early summer when plants are large but somewhat succulent. Emergent sterile stems of horsetail have been employed for the treatment of various clinical disorders including haemorrhage, urethritis, jaundice and hepatitis in traditional medicine in various countries. The plant is cut above the root and the stems are used as fresh or processed as an ingredient for food, nutraceutical or pharmaceutical applications. Horsetail is available in the form of dried leaves, liquid or powder extract, tincture, tea bags and capsules. Read More
