Horsetail: natural ingredient of Triko Ok Women

Horsetail is a plant without flowers that grows in damp places. The name "horsetail" has been given remembering its typical appearance. The plant is extremely rich in minerals such as potassium and silica that make it an excellent mineralizing in states of fatigue and in case of fractures.

Being also a diuretic plant, is used in the solicitation of renal activity. The silica and other minerals, stimulate the connective tissue and are particularly suited to facilitate the restoration of articular cartilage in the course of illness.
Horsetail also performs an action on the elasticity of tendons and blood vessel walls becoming, thus, an important substance for athletes such as cyclists, tennis players, the marchers and players.

Property of the Horsetail

At the horsetail are attributed diuretic properties, haemostatic and edemo-poietic. Among the major constituents of this plant there are silicon the equisetonine some organic acids, resins, Aluminum Chloride and Potassium. At the silicic acid are attributed the re-mineralizing properties that the plant owns and are found chiefly in beauty and skin treatments. The results on coagulation are more debated while it is safe stimulation of hematopoiesis (formation of red blood cells).
Horsetail is used in treatment protocols for osteoarthritis and for the benefits it can have on the articular cartilage, and bone tissue.

It features astringent properties, healing, diuretic, haemosta-
tic, mineralizing, the latter valuable for bone, cartilage, nails and hair. In use as a diuretic in viral and inflammatory diseases of the urinary tract because it increases the irrigation of the urinary tract excretory.
The drug causes a particular water diuresis without changing the electrolyte balance. It also employs in the case of post-traumatic edema and static. Externally it is used as an adjuvant against difficult healing wounds, eczema, infected lesions of legs and feet using compresses or ablu-
tions.

Its mineralizing activity is due to its high content of silicon, which would have a key role in facilitating the calcification of the bones especially in the early stages of their formation and facilitate the composition of the bone callus after fractures. It is believed that the Equisetum possesses a prior conduct against atherosclerosis, given that silicon is an element of the arteries integrity preservation.

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.
