FUNBAC (equisetum)


Horsetail extract (equisetum arvenses) ………. 100% w/v

FunBac contains Equisetum arvense, also known as 'horsetail', it is a bushy plant that belongs to the Equisetaceae family and is readily found throughout Europe. It grows naturally in temperate zones of the northern hemisphere and in moist places next to watercourses. Equisetum arvense has long been known in Organic and Biodynamic agriculture, having preventive and beneficial effects on plants. The sterile strains have the greatest medicinal and agricultural interest because they contain silicon which helps to strengthen the tissues of plant cells. It is approved for horticulture, fruit trees, red fruits (berries), vines and its effectiveness has been proven in the prevention and control of the above crops. Its effectiveness is based on its stimulating effect on plant defense mechanisms thanks to the high content of organic silicon (bound to proteins) and salts rich in Potassium and Magnesium, together with saponoids, flavonoids and tannins (equisetonin).

Silica application has been shown to alleviate the negative effects of many abiotic stresses, such as salinity, heat, cold, UV-B radiation , heavy metals and mechanical stresses. It strengthens the cell walls in the plant and limits interventions with synthetic chemical products, reducing the level of toxic content in crops.
