Field Horsetail tea, Ceai din Coada calului, Mezei zsurlo tea, Equisetum arvense DESCRIPTION: Field Horsetail ( Equisetum Arvense ) has traditionally been used in Europe as a diuretic for the treatment of edema (swelling/fluid retention). There is preliminary human evidence supporting the use of horsetail as a diuretic. One poorly designed human trial found horsetail to effectively raise bone density equally to calcium supplements. In theory (based on mechanism of action), horsetail ingestion in large amounts may cause thiamine deficiency, hypokalemia (low potassium), or nicotine toxicity. Reported adverse effects include dermatitis. There is preliminary human evidence supporting the use of horsetail as a diuretic. One poorly designed human trial found that horsetail effectively raises bone density as well as supplements. In theory (based on mechanism of action), ingestion of large amounts of horsetail may cause thiamine deficiency, hypokalemia, or nicotine toxicity. Reported adverse effects include dermatitis. HABITAT AND CULTIVATION: Native to Europe, North Africa, northern Asia, and the Americas, horsetail is a common plant, preferring damp soil. The sterile stems are harvested in summer and carefully dried, all discolored parts being discarded. Constituents: minerals (silicic acids and silicates - 5-8%; potassium, aluminium, sulphurmanganese and magnesium), flavonoids (principally quercetin glycosides), phenolic acids, alkaloids (usually absent except for traces of nicotine, palustrine and palustrinine), saponin (equisetonin), bitter principle, phytostero ls (cholesterol, isofucosterol, campesterol and others), tannins. Actions: weak diuretic, genito-urinary astringent, antihaemorrhagic, haemostatic, prophylactic causing a mild leucocytosis, restorative to damaged pulmonary tissue, possible detoxifier; Locally styptic and vulnerary. Therapeutics and Pharmacology: Equisetum is an excellent genito-urinary system astringent. It may be applied to such conditions as urethritis or cystitis with haematuria, reducing haemorrhage and healing wounds thanks to the high silica content. Whilst it acts as a mild diuretic, its toning and astringent action make it of value in the treatment of incontinence and bed-wetting in children. As a diuretic it is particularly suited to metabolic or hormonal oedema during the meno pause. The diuretic action is thought to be due partly to the flavonoids and saponins. It is generally accepted that water diuresis takes place without increase in the excretion of electrolytes. Sitz baths with equisetum extract are indicatedfor functional pelvic disease in women where there is no inflammation, but primarily muscular tensions and changes in muscle tone in the small pelvis that are aut onomous in origin. It is considered a specific remedy in cases of inflammation or benign enlargement of the prostate gland. Equisetum is restorative to damaged pulmonary tissue after pulmonary tuberculosis and other lung disease, as the silicic acid is said to stabilise the scar tissue.
