Horsetail has traditionally been used as a diuretic, haemostatic and re-mineraliser. At first it was believed that the diuretic activity was caused by the inorganic elements of the plant (silicon), but today it seems to have been demonstrated that the action is caused by the flavonoids and saponins. It has a considerable haemostatic and cicatrising action and has therefore been used traditionally to treat certain haemorrhages. Its remineralising action must also be stressed, caused by the silicon content.
