Comments

– A Brazilian study carried out mainly by researchers from the Federal University of Goiás, in Brazil, showed that horsetail (E. arvense) produced a diuretic effect comparable to hydrochlorothiazide (25 mg), a molecule used against hypertension. The effect of horsetail was superior to that of a placebo. This study was published in 2014 in the scientific journal Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine .
