Horsetail and Silica For Hair Growth

We are almost done with the ingredients for hairfinity. Today's topic has to do with horsetail and silica.

Known by the botanical name Equisetum, horsetail is a prehistoric plant with distinctive hollow stems. Horsetail contains silica, an abundant mineral that helps promote strong bones and healthy skin, hair and nails.


Silica is a major constituent of collagen and helps support healthy tissues. Silica is marketed by itself as a general health supplement in several forms, including liquid and powder.( Check our post On Collagen).

Silica helps your body absorb calcium. Calcium is the most abundant mineral in your body. It is needed for bone health and the proper function of your muscles and nerves. It is also needed for proper cell signaling -- a communication system that directs cellular activity.
