Herb – Horsetail (Equisetum arvense)
Horsetail (Equisetum arvense)
Recent studies have shown the great promise of Horsetail to help with bone loss. It is a rich source of bioavailable calcium and silicon, as well as the synergistic blend of other phytonutrients that make the plant highly effective. Silicon is an essential nutrient for both collagen and bone regeneration. Prolonged use of horsetail is not advised. When using this herb orally, levels of vitamin B1 (thiamin) can drop and so it is important to take a quality multivitamin or at least a B complex supplement at the same time.
As with most new supplements, it is important to speak with your Doctor before adding in Horsetail to your diet. While it is available in most health food stores, it is important to find a high quality source for this herb. Your doctor will also be able to recommend dosage, especially if you are already on a calcium supplement.
