Vitacost Silica Horsetail Herb Extract Description

High-quality, 100% plant-based silica from horsetail herb extract.


What is Vitacost Silica Horsetail Herb Extract?


Vitacost Silica Horsetail Herb Extract is a high-quality extract of horsetail herb, standardized to the active ingredient silica (an organic form of the mineral silicon). Silica is the primary source of silicon in the diet. It’s found in plant-derived foods such as cereals, rice and grasses. Scientists believe the health-promoting properties of horsetail are due to its silica content.*


Horsetail (Equisetum arvense), is a perennial, non-flowering plant found throughout parts of Europe, Asia, the Middle East and North America. It’s a descendant of huge, tree-like plants that thrived millions of years ago during the Paleozoic Era.


How does Vitacost Silica Horsetail Herb Extract support health?

  • Horsetail is comprised of flavonoids, phenolic acids, alkaloids and sterols which may contribute to its antioxidant properties.*
  • Adequate silicon intake has been linked to healthy bone density.*

Why choose Vitacost Silica Horsetail Herb Extract?

  • Supplies 1,000 mg of horsetail with 70 mg of silica per single tablet.
  • Standardized to ensure consistent levels of the active ingredient in each dose.
  • Suitable for vegetarians.

Seems to have started to strengthen the nails within the first week. I have very dry nails that split & crack. The dried out look is gone & it's only been a couple weeks. I gave a months worth to my friend that has her hands in dish water all the time. It's an awfully good buy for the money. If I continue to order, you'll know that it's still working. April 20, 2015
Good product This product is very good for my bones, but it made me urinate too much so I cut it in half and it works well. I'm going to keep using it. February 25, 2012
Great Idea I've used vegetable silica for over 40 years but this product is better. It's stronger so I don't have to gulp 3 at a time like I had been doing. My husband likes it better too. We will buy more before we run out. November 28, 2011
Contains stearic acid and magnesium stearate. I will find a product without them next time. Solid pill so I cannot open it to pour it on my food. November 8, 2011
They work The only real problem I have with them is that they are big... and sometimes It take me 2-3 times to swallow. However I will continue to use them. May 14, 2011
