Top Benefits of Horsetail In Beauty

Horsetail is a plant with the common name of Equisetum, and it is also known as puzzlegrass. They are defined by a singular vascular shoot that forms the main stem and the leaves are largely non-photosynthetic. Furthermore, they reproduce via spores, not seeds – a very unusual quality for a plant.

Horsetail as a beauty ingredient is a standout in that it’s reported to contain more silicon in the form of silica and silica acids than any other herb, in a form that’s highly absorbable by the body. Silicon is a trace mineral essential to human health that’s also the second most abundant element (after oxygen) in the earth’s crust. (Don’t confuse this with “silicone,” which is a man-made substance derived from silicon and other chemicals, and used in industrial applications.)

Inside the human body, silicon is important to the strength of the blood vessels, organs, skin, hair, and bones, contributing to the form, resilience, and flexibility of all connective tissues.
