History of Colloidal Silver

The possible benefits of silver in healing, increased immunities and antibiotic properties have been noted by scientists as far back as Hippocrates. Early Greeks and Romans used silver as a preservative and the royalty of Europe ate off silver plates and used silver utensils, hoping to increase their immunity to common illnesses. In the late 1800s up through the 1930's, colloidal silver was commonly used as an antibiotic and in the treatment of a wide variety of illnesses and diseases. Unfortunately, good quality colloidal silver was difficult and very expensive to manufacture and with the introduction of reasonably priced antibiotics in the 1940's, the use of silver decreased.

In recent years many disease and infection causing bacteria have become increasingly resistant to common antibiotics. As a result, much research has been done into the possible used and effectiveness of high quality, expertly produced colloidal silver.

There is a lot of expertise that goes into producing and maintaining a consistently high quality silver year in and year out. We have that time-tested expertise, as well as thousands of loyal customers who have used out silver for years. The assurance of quality in Colloidal Silver products is not simply a matter of claiming to be better than the other. Laboratory processes can be done to confirm that what is shown on the label is actually what you are getting. From the start, we have sent out silver products to independent state of the art labs for analysis of effectiveness and safety and for quality assurance. Our strengths always test at or above potency levels (parts per million). Unfortunately, we have found by testing some other silver products, claims can (and often do) fall far short of what is printed on their labels. The particle size of our Colloidal Silver ranges between 0.004 and 0.107 microns, with over 75% measuring between 0.065 and 0.013 microns in diameter. This is the ideal particle size for optimum absorption. There has also been much said about the toxicity of silver, however, laboratory tests performed on our silver products concluded that the test article(s) would not be considered toxic.

There are various forms of silver as well as various methods of manufacturing.  Silver Nitrate is a very reactive form that was used by doctors years ago to swab the throat of a patient with a cotton swab dipped into a solution of it.  It in essence gave a mild chemical burn and left some residual silver which did prove effective, but very toxic in even small amounts.  Spill some on your skin and instant discoloration.

The silver labeled "ionic" is made by an electrolysis process and produces silver missing an outer electron due to the process.  It is similar to the silver nitrate but not as toxic and still very reactive.  Notice most all of the sellers of "ionic" silver sell it in very small parts per million, i.e. 5 or 10 parts.  Taken over a long period of time in even small dosages and you stand the chance of skin discoloration.

Being very reactive "ionic" silver wants to bond with something like stomach acid producing silver chloride.  Stomach acid is HCL, so you get silver chloride and a burp.  Not a very effective internal use of silver.

True colloidal silver is elemental silver particles, with a complete outer electron shell of nanometer size suspended in pure distilled water with no other reactive impurities.  

The two most important things to remember about colloidal silver's effectiveness is the concentration and the particle size.  Our mean particle size is 35 nanometers (nano is a billionth of a meter - micron is a millionth) and the concentration of 2,000 PPM is about as high as we want to safely sell at the retail level as a mineral supplement.
