AAH RoughHorsetail LG

Equisetum hyemale is a member of the only genus in the horsetail family (Equisetaceae) and is native to Eurasia and North America. Called rough horsetail or scouring rush, the plant has traditionally been used for incontinence, irritation of the genito-urinary tract, urge to urinate when the bladder is empty, edema, and kidney stones.

The American Botanical Council (ABC) is passionate about helping people live healthier lives through the responsible use of herbs and medicinal plants. As an independent, nonprofit education organization, ABC is dedicated to providing accurate and reliable information for consumers, healthcare practitioners, researchers, educators, industry and the media.

Please enjoy this information on rough horsetail made available through the generosity of The Grow Network’s adoption.
