Plant description

Equisetum - horsetailsnake grasspuzzlegrass is the only living genus in Equisetaceae, a family of vascular plants that reproduce by spores rather than seeds.

Equisetum is a "living fossil" as it is the only living genus of the entire class Equisetopsida, which for over one hundred million years was much more diverse and dominated the understory of late Paleozoic forests. Some Equisetopsida were large trees reaching to 30 meters tall. 

The name "horsetail", often used for the entire group, arose because the branched species somewhat resemble a horse's tail. Similarly, the scientific name Equisetum derives from theLatin equus ("horse") + seta ("bristle").

The genus Equisetum is near-cosmopolitan, being absent only from Antarctica. They are perennial plants, either herbaceous and dying back in winter as most temperate species, or evergreen as most tropical species and the temperate species rough horsetail (E. hyemale), branched horsetail (E. ramosissimum), dwarf horsetail (E. scirpoides) and variegated horsetail (E. variegatum). They typically grow 0.2-1.5 m tall, though the "giant horsetails" are reco. 



Thanks to a wealth of minerals and many biologically active substances horsetail has a huge impact on the systemic effects and thus is widely used in:

- the inflammation of the lower urinary tract

- with difficult to heal wounds and other skin problems

- inflammations of the mouth

- has a supportive effect in the treatment of atherosclerosis

- alleviates swelling due to water retention and electrolytes in the body as a result of kidney or heart disease

- regulates metabolism

- supports the weakening of hormonal activity in old age

- strengthens and tones the blood vessels

- improves the condition of the skin and mucous membranes (it tones and smoothes the skin)

- improves the condition of connective tissue and bone

- significantly improves the condition of hair and nails

- has anti-hemorragical and detoxicating effect

For medicinal purposes the ground part (assimilation shoots) is used. It is quickly dried naturally away from direct sunlight
