Horsetail is great for all kinds of GI problems including nervous stomach and acid stomach. Horsetail is a great antibiotic, antiseptic, and antifungal agent… an also a very good anti-inflammatory agent and it’s a good diuretic full of anti-oxidants that help with cardiovascular disease and stroke. And new studies show that diabetics who take Horsetail have lower blood glucose levels. And because it’s a good diuretic it also helps with edema, kidney stones, and gout, and also a good de-toxing agent. And the anti-inflammatory agents in Horsetail are good for arthritis and joint pain, plus inflammation of the urinary bladder and prostate… and because it has lots of calcium and silica it’s great for broken bones and for strengthening brittle nails.
