Horsetail Liquid Extract


An ancient herbal remedy to ease joint pain and enhance bone-strength.

Horsetail liquid extract is your simple natural remedy to support those creaky bones, loosen stiff joints and help ease joint and arthritic pains.  Horsetail’s usage dates back to ancient Greece and Rome and has historically been used for a variety of ailments including the strengthening of weak bones, lubricating joints, helping to stop bleeding and helping people with kidney or bladder stones.  One of it’s magical properties is silica; it’s an element in horsetail that plays a central role in developing healthy hair, nails, and skin and is also responsible for internal joint lubrication.  Recent studies have also discovered that other natural properties in horsetail prove to have considerable anti-oxidant effects as well as anti-inflammatory benefits.

Horsetail works like a diuretic,  helping the body increase urine output, which in turn helps the body rid itself of toxins and unwanted bio-waste.  It helps those suffering from fluid retention; it helps calm and treat urinary tract infections and it helps women with heavy menstrual periods.

Tony O’s take on Hawaii Pharm Organic Horsetail Liquid Extract:

Unusual as this extract is, I love it because it clearly helps to lubricate and support my achy bodily joints.  As we age regardless of physical shape, the cartilage that allows our bones and joints to glide smoothly starts to deteriorate creating that “creaking” sound we hear people talk about so often.  Using Horsetail has helped bring that smoothness back to my joints, particularly my knees that have been beaten down over all the years of hard bicycle riding I’ve done.  If you feel your joints creaking, arthritis pains bothering you or joint inflammation getting you down, horsetail is the perfect natural extract that may help ease your pains!  As a bonus you’ll notice the condition of your hair, skin and nails improve too!


Horsetail is a prehistoric plant found throughout Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and North America, with distinctive hollow stems and shoots.  Horsetail has an unusual chemistry compared to most other plants.  It is rich in silica, a substance that plays a role in keeping bones strong and joints lubricated, and it also contains several alkaloids and various other minerals all which provide an array of health benefits.

Researchers have identified 25 compounds from the oils extracted from horsetail leaves.  They found that one group of compounds promotes anti-microbial activity.  Yet another compound demonstrates high level anti-oxidant activity; compounds like n-butanol, methanol and ethyl acetate, all exhibit significant free-radical scavenging activity.  And its high silica content makes it an age-old remedy for strengthening bones.  In other studies, researchers have also discovered that the ethanolic extract found in horsetail offers anti-anxiety benefits comparable to diazepam, with a lower sedative effect.  This is truly an unusual extract with many diverse uses.

Horsetail is well known for its urological benefits, and it’s been used to ease or treat fluid retention, edema, kidney and bladder stones, urinary tract infections, incontinence, and general disturbances of the kidney and bladder.
