The medicinal use of horsetail dates back to ancient Roman and Greek times. The Greeks used horsetail as a wound healer, a diuretic, and an agent to stop bleeding. The North American native peoples used horsetail to treat a number of kidney and bladder ailments.

The German Commission E has approved horsetail as an effective treatment for kidney and bladder inflammations, edema, urinary tract infections, and bacterial infections. Horsetail is rich in silica. Silica helps to promote the body's absorption of calcium, an important component in tissue repair and bone and cartilage formation. It a good source for strengthening weak connective tissues, and healing bones, fractures, and torn ligaments.

Horsetail is also used to treat arthritis and osteoporosis, as the silicon in horsetail may replace lost silicon in the affected bones. Horsetail may be a possible remedy for senility. Senility often occurs when there is more aluminum in the blood than silica. One theory suggests that when the silicon and aluminum levels are balanced, the symptoms of senility will disappear.

What Our Clients Say

I am a skeptic by nature. I never trust the words unless I investigate the issue myself. I came across the book by Klaus Kaufmann “Silica: the forgotten nutrition”. I should say that the book is very informative and interesting. I learned that there is a company which manufactures the silica water and decided to find out for myself what it is all about.

In 2 months I started feeling much better – more energy, better sleep and what is more important I started dealing with stress my better. Now I drink silica water regularly. I trust myself.

In spring 2003 I had all the signs of diabetes, including the sugar level up to 14 points which is almost 3 times higher than the norm. Doctors told me to completely exclude sugar from my diet. Starting May I started drinking silica water.

I drink a full glass of silica water first thing in the morning, on an empty stomach. And during the day, if I was thirsty I only drank silica water. By September the same year I felt strong and healthy. I decided to go for another check up and to the doctor’s surprise, everything was fine with me. Sugar level dropped down to 4-5 points, which is an absolute norm. I am 80 years old.
