Horsetail is a plant with the common name of Equisetum, which is the last remaining species of the genus of that name. It is also known as puzzlegrass. The remaining members of that genus have gone extinct, so this is truly a blast from the past, and has some unique characteristics to go with that great backstory! They are defined by a singular vascular shoot that forms the main stem and the leaves are largely non-photosynthetic. Furthermore, they reproduce via spores, not seeds – a very unusual quality for a plant. Historical records include mentions of horsetail being used for myriad health issues dating back to Greek and Roman times.

 

When horsetail is consumed, minerals and unique organic compounds are passed on to us, resulting in a wide variety of health benefits. Some of the active ingredients that make horsetail potent include antioxidant compounds, silica, and other phytochemicals that can have dramatic effects on the body.

Health benefits: Horsetail tea, due to the presence of flavonoids, increases the volume of urine excreted and removes excess urate, therefore decoctions from this plant are used as a weak diuretic in low-intensity urinary tract diseases. It also has a mild diastolic effect on the bile and urinary tract, and also seals the walls of blood vessels. Horsetail has a calming and anticonvulsant effect. Modern phytotherapy recommends their use also in bleeding from varicose veins, colon ulcers and gastric and duodenal ulcers, as well as in nose and lung bleeding. The field chestnut can be used for skin damage, burns, inflammation of the skin in the form of compresses. In addition, it is used in some skin diseases caused by the accumulation of harmful metabolism in the blood, including in psoriasis. Horsetail can also be used by people struggling with capillary skin. It will strengthen the capillaries and reduce the risk of their breakage. Externally, decoctions are used to rinse mouth inflammation. Thanks to the silicon contained in the horsetail, the hair is shiny and strong, the nails do not split and the skin aging process is inhibited.

Good service, but difficult packaging

I ordered horsetail tea from this store for the second time as it has some great healing qualities and it’s nice that they offer to buy in bulk. The order arrived quickly and it’s good value for money, but plastic bag it arrives in is very flimsy, not sustainable at all and not resealable. Otherwise I would have given 5 stars.

Awesome store!

Arrived very fast! And in great condition! The flowers were intact and in good price! I will buy again!

Wonderful colors!

I used already the pink pittaya and the nlue spirulina. They look so wonderful! Unfortunately the pink pittaya powder was all hard and like stone, so i needed to grind again, which became a little bit a mess. Maybe the storage or package was not 100% safe.
I hope the rest of the packages are not like this!

No order and no response

Im not happy at all. I have not received my order still and I also not had any response from all the messages I have sent enquiring where it is. I've sent text and messages on Instagram and Facebook and have had no reply. My order was very important and I need it ASAP as I will be moving in the next couple of weeks.

Great Sweet Potato powder

Good product, fast delivery as always

I still have not received the order!!!!!

As they have fulfilled my order I have been sent this survey, well I haven't received it yet. I queried, they sent me a tracking number but how do I use this tracking number? Absolutely useless, avoid this company like the plague. It's a scam, they take your money. Plus they have no contact number . They can send me another review link if they can be bothered to actually get the item to me
