When I first wrote the following review, Jarrow Formulas was only offering a 1 oz bottle of Jarrosil with less than half the potency at just a few dollars less than the competing Natrol Biosil that has twice the potency.
Since then they have started offering a 2 oz bottle of Jarrosil to compensate for the difference in potency, and the value is greatly improved!
So I a ammending my review, the main question in deciding what brand to buy is now merely a difference in formulation....
I did buy the Natrol and have been using it, it works just as well as the Jarrosil for me.
I have been using the BioSil product for over a year now, and it is an essential part of my mineral supplementation program... but it was discontinued.
SO... after comparing the price of the new JarroSil and the Natrol BioSil 1oz Liquids, I went with the JarroSil since it appeared to be less expensive. I bought Several bottles, too.
When I got it home and started taking the JarroSil, I realized that the recommended dosage was 10 drops for a 4 mg serving.
The old BioSil was a 5 drop dose for a 5 mg serving.
So now I am having to take more than twice as much to get the same serving.
I looked at the Natrol BioSil and it is still a 5 drop dose for a 5mg serving...
SO..The Natrol BioSil IS more expensive than the old BioSil, but it's still less expensive than the JarroSil.
Basically the JarroSil costs .07 cents per mg, or if you buy the Two pack it costs .05 cents per mg...
But the Natrol BioSil costs .04 cents per mg.
I think that is what I will buy next time.

My nails are stronger and my skin is thicker and more youthful. Didn't expect this since all other products I tried were not effective at all. Excellent product from Jarrow Formulas.
3 months later: optimal combination for skin health = Jarrosil + vit C + DHA-EPA. my nails look perfect as well...my hair also grows faster (noticed by my wife)

My hair has been thinning for a few years now - I'm cutting my hair shorter to avoid bald spots. After two weeks of taking this I can already tell a difference - my hair is thicker!! Better than the Hair Max I've been taking for months. My skin is also softer & less dry -- better than the $100+ isomers I've been using for a year!!
