I've tried a number of them and I prefer Cola de Caballo by Amazon Therapeutics Laboratory liquid alcohol extract. This is their silica product, an extract of horsetail. It seems the most effective and easiest to assimilate. I get it from Vitacost. I would not order it directly from Amazon Therapeutics, based on my experience with that. Most of their products are very vital and potent, and are wildcrafted in remote areas, but l think they are using herbal products themselves, if you know what I mean.

I also tried Jarrow's Jarrosil. I like Jarrow but this didn't seem to be an organic product and wasn't as potent as the Amazon one. I tried Herb Pharms liquid alcohol horsetail extract. Like other Herb Pharm's products it had a weird color and taste, kind of like wood or tannins. I just don't like their products. It wasn't as potent. I tried Nature's Way horsetail capsules. They seemed to be somewhat hard to digest, for me. I generally like that brand and I believe that their products are fresh, good quality and as labeled, but not everyone can absorb every herb in that form (ground up raw in capsules).

Nature's Way silica was ok when I cooked it. I dumped all the capsules whole into some water and brought it to a boil, simmered it for twenty minutes, let it cool, filtered it through a coffee filter and kept it in a glass jar in the frig. I let each dose come to room temperature before drinking. This actually made my nails grow more than the Cola de Caballo. It's too much work for me to do again but someone else might benefit from knowing about this. Eating the raw powdered herbs in the capsules was just not digestible for me.
