>> Main Active Ingredients of HerbEx Horsetail Extract™
Horsetail is a perennial plant common to moist loamy or sandy soil all over North America and Eurasia. It is strange looking, with creeping, stringlike rootstock and roots at the nodes that produce numerous hollow stems.
Horsetail contains large amounts of silicic acid and silicates (about 15%), flavonoids, phenolic acids, alkaloids (including nicotine), and sterols. Much of the therapeutic effectiveness of horsetail is due to its high silica content, a large proportion of which is soluble and can be absorbed. No other herb in the entire plant kingdom is so rich in silicon as is horsetail. This trace element really helps to bind protein molecules together in the blood vessels and connective tissues. Silicon is the material of which collagen is made. Collagen is the "body glue" that holds our skin and muscle tissues together. Silicon also promotes the growth and stability of the skeletal structure.
