Horsetail is a plant very rich in organic vegetal silica. It is traditionally used for its remineralizing properties. With a mild taste, Silice de Prele is suitable for people who do not appreciate strong flavors.
Silicon is an essential mineral for the proper functioning of the body.
JOINTS, TENDONS, BONES, MUSCLES
It is necessary for the formation and maintenance of these tissue components found throughout the body:
- Collagen, which gives all organs and tissues of the body their strength.
- Elastin, which provides flexibility and elasticity in large quantities in the skin, tendons, ligaments, and the walls of blood vessels.
- Proteoglycans (glucosamine, chondroitin sulfate, and hyaluronic acid), are water traps that ensure the hydration of organs, tissues (especially the skin), cartilages, and joints.
CELLULAR AND REBALANCING BENEFITS
Due to its conductive role, silicon acts on the polarity of cell membranes and makes the body’s reactions more efficient.
It is a chelator of heavy metals and an antioxidant that helps the body defend itself and eliminate toxic compounds.
YOUTH, SKIN, HAIR, AND NAILS
It promotes the firmness of tissues, flexibility, and mineralization in synergy with other components of the plant. These effects, added to the antioxidant properties, slow down the effects of aging and help to maintain the youthfulness of tissues.
Quality of raw materials.
The quality of horsetails is essential. The plant has a great ability to assimilate elements present in soils, hence its high mineral richness. This means that it also has the capacity to absorb and bioaccumulate soil pollutants. Horsetail often grows near human activities (roadside, ditches, industrial wastelands). We recommend not consuming these plants that contain soil pollutants. It is preferable to pick horsetail in wild places, such as in the mountains. That’s why our horsetails come from mountains where soils have been preserved from human activities. Our raw materials are exclusively of European origin.
