What is Silica from Horsetail Extract?
Silica from Horsetail 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.
