7.  Bladder Issues/Bedwetting Problems

Some studies have shown that horsetail extract can help those with urinary tract infections, bedwetting problems, and weak bladders. For bladder weakness and UTIs, a warm bath with some horsetail tea is helpful, as well as consuming two or three horsetail capsule supplements each day.

 

8. Stops Edema

In the 2004 issue of Pharmacal Research, research was published which showed that horsetail had strong anti-inflammatory compounds and in studies done involving mice, it reduced edema (swelling due to water retention) by as much as 30 percent.  The German Commission E has approved this herb for use as a diuretic for those with edema. Horsetail can also help restore minerals that are lost due to increased urination.

 

9.  Respiratory Support

Making a tea from horsetail and consuming this 2 or 3 times per day was shown to help support healthy lungs, help heal bronchitis, nasal congestion and stop coughs. Talk to your doctor if your symptoms last more than 5 days. Find out more remedies to calm a cough.
