Horsetail can be used to help support urinary tract illnesses, kidney and bladder stones, wounds and burns. In natural health, Horsetail can also be tried to help support swelling, gout, fractures, frostbite, tuberculosis, profuse menstrual bleeding, brittle finger nails, hair loss, water accumulation, rheumatic health concerns, and nasal, pulmonary, and gastric bleeding. Its effectiveness for these complications has not been established. Its capability to draw excess water from the body makes it sensible for taking away bacterial infections and kidney stones from the urinary tract.
Horsetail is located north of the equator. Only stems accumulated during summer season are medicinal.
Horsetail receives its name from the bristly look of its jointed stems. Horsetail is also referred to as Toadpipe, Bottle-brush, Pewterwort, Scouring Rush, Horse Willow, Paddock-pipes and Shave Grass.
