Horsetail: natural ingredient of Triko Ok Women

Property of the Horsetail (Continued ...)

The silicon and other minerals stimulate the connective tissue and are particularly appropriate in facilitating the repair of cartilage in the course of illness of the joints. Horsetail also performs an action on the ’elasticity of tendons and blood vessel walls becoming an excellent product for those who practice sports.

The Equisetum arvense contains flavonoids, saponosides (equisetonina), alkaloids (nicotine) and most important measure of the silicates (silicon content in the form of silica). It is this active principle which gives the plant the opportunity to make a contribution in the process of calcification of the bones, as the silicon has an essential task in facilitating the deposition of calcium.

The plant also has a diuretic effect due to the flavonoids (isoquercitine, kaemferol) contained in it, assisted by mineral ions. The Horsetail also has hemostatic action that is given by the possibility that the same has in activating the apparatus of coagulation fibrin-plastic. The astringent effect on the apparatus genitourinary supports the efficacy in case of bleeding from cystitis, urethritis and prostatitis.
The Equisetum arvense is very rich in silicon, especially in the present conformation of opal. It represents about 10% of the dry plant and is essentially soluble type, therefore absorbed by the intestines. This plant is also rich in further minerals.

Therapeutic properties

The Equisetum arvense is known especially for its remineralizing conduct. The biological investigation has provided evidence that silicon is essential to facilitate the deposition of calcium in the bones, especially in the early stages of their training. This constituent gives a contribution, together with calcium, phosphorus, fluorine, magnesium and boron in the process of bone calcification.

It was also noted that animals fed with a diet particularly poor in silicon had a minor composition of bone callus after a fracture and their bone mineral had a concentration less than that of the control animals. It is also considered that the flavonoids present in this plant, in synergy with silicon, resulting an increase in the amount of osteoblasts (cells that make new bone) and a more highlighted their activities and would also be able to limit both the number and the activity of osteoclasts (the cells that destroy bone). These actions have been documented in cultured bone tissue in experimental animals and in humans.
