Benefits of horsetail extract

Benefits of horsetail extract

The ancient herb known as "horsetail" is one of the many quality hair vitamin ingredients that do work wonders for your hair and more! Its use as a medical herb dates back to the times of the Greeks and the Romans!

Horsetail extract comes from the horsetail plant, also known as Equisetum arvense. Horsetails extract is in the fern family of plants and, they have existed since the Paleozoic Era!!

The name “horsetail” came about because the plant resembles the tail and mane of a horse. The main reason why the herb is believed to be able to stimulate hair growth is because of its antioxidants and anti-inflammatory effects. Horsetail can also improve circulation, leading to the improvement of your hair follicles and stimulating hair growth.

Horsetail is also very rich in the mineral ingredient silica/silicon, which strengthens hair strands, as well as nails and bones!  The mineral silica found in a horsetail supplement for hair growth doesn’t just help the fragility of the hair; as an added bonus it also improves its sheen, elasticity and texture. Horsetail also contains selenium, a mineral that is essential for the proper growth of your hair, as it helps your body process iodine, which regulates hair growth as well.
