Horsetail Grass Helps Those With Tuberculosis
By:MTA
Horsetail grass is a perennial flowerless plant also known as bottle brush, horse willow,

toadpipe, Dutch rushes, Corn Horsetail, Quyroughi, Atkuyrugu, and Shavegrass. Its
medicinal value is found in the hollow, jointed stems. Roman physician Galen first
recommended its use for treatment for bleeding ulcers, arthritis, kidney and bladder
troubles, and tuberculosis. The Chinese still use it as a remedy for eye inflammations
such as conjunctivitis and corneal disorders, to cool a fever, and to treat dysentery, flu,
swellings, and hemorrhoids. The dried or fresh green stems of horsetail are usually
collected in summer.

The horsetail is one of the most diuretic species in all the plants. This means it is effective
in eliminating water from the body. The secret is in the chemical ingredient equisetonin
and because of it horsetail can actually increase urination up to 30%. Therefore, it is often
used in products for weight loss. Equisetonin and potassium are also beneficial for this
and calcium, magnesium, ascorbic acid and caffeic acid also contribute to this diuretic
ability.
