Horsetail

Horsetail, aka shavegrass, is packed with vitamin C & B-complex as well as minerals such as silica, calcium, magnesium, iron, and manganese. 

I take this medicinal herb to help me reverse aging ;) Horsetail is well known for its anti-aging, anti-wrinkle properties due to its ability to help form collagen and repair damaged skin to produce a more youthful glow.

I also get this medicinal herb in me regularly because it’s excellent for strengthening bones, teeth, hair, and nails-- and it can improve bone density, and enhance bone flexibility. Once again, I’m taking the pro-active approach here in regards to bone density….Not going to be suffering through osteoporosis at any point in my journey; taking the proactive approach here. 

Horsetail is one of the best sources of silica (which is what the body ACTUALLY needs in order to create collagen)…Silica also strengthens the connective tissues of the brain, nerve cells, and spinal cord thereby improving memory and helping to prevent memory loss…and as you all know by now, I’m always exercising interventions which will help me nurture my noodle ;).

Horsetail also provided me benefits along my healing journey too, as this medicinal herb contains powerful antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and astringent properties.

So what other sort of symptoms or conditions would I use horsetail for?

If I suffered with incontinence, bladder weakness, edema, bloating, swelling, water retention kidney stones and urinary tract infections, I would bring in the horsetail--it contains natural diuretic properties which can come to the aid of these conditions.

If I broke any bones, pulled a hamstring, or dislocated any joints—horsetail would be a part of my healing protocol. If I was dealing with type 2 diabetes, I would include herbal infusions with horsetail into my daily routine—Medical Medium says that its been shown to help those with type 2 diabetes by significantly lowering blood glucose levels within 1.5-2 hours.
