Nature’s Sunshine horsetail is an herb used for a variety of medicinal purposes. Horsetail, or shavegrass as it’s commonly known, has astringent properties that were known about in ancient Rome and Greece. One reason horsetail is such an effective astringent is because it contains a high level of silica. Silica helps build and repair the body’s connective tissue. In Greco-Roman times, horsetail was often used to treat wounds, ulcers, kidney disorders and even tuberculosis.
The silica in horsetail helps to encourage bone health and collagen production. Because of this, horsetail is often used for the prevention and treatment of disorders such as osteoporosis. Horsetail may also be used to promote healthy hair, skin and nails. This herb forms silica crystals as it dries, which is one reason why it was once used to polish pewter. Each Natures Sunshine horsetail supplement capsule contains 360 mg of the highest quality horsetail.
