Colloidal Silver


What is colloidal silver?

In its purest form, colloidal silver is a solution of microscopic silver nanoparticles of silver suspended in water.  Colloidal silver can also be obtained colloidal silver spray, colloidal silver gel and colloidal silver gel. Colloidal silver was once widely used to treat bacterial, fungal and viral infections before the adoption of antibiotics. There is a lot of historical evidence that suggests that silver has always been connected to good health. This is said to partially explain the preference of royalty and nobles to eat and drink almost solely from silverware. Recently, NASA has used colloidal silver as a water purification system. Many major airlines also use silver water filtration systems to ensure drinking water quality.

What are colloidal silver benefits?

Using colloidal silver small doses either as a spray or dietary supplement is thought to provide the following benefits.

  • An improvement in the quality of drinking water [1] - studies have shown that as little as 2 teaspoons of silver particles having a potency of 30 ppm (parts per million) will purify 1 gallon of water. Most commercial colloidal silver solutions have a potency of between 16 and 20 ppm.
  • Can help to enhance the immune system [2].
  • Its antibacterial properties can help to neutralise antibiotic resistant germs and bacteria [3].
  • Has been shown to assist in the repair and regrowth of skin tissue [4] - Dr Robert Becker’s work has consistently shown silver to be particularly effective in treating and dressing wounds has been particularly effective. Furthermore, studies have clearly demonstrated that wound dressings containing silver nanoparticles appear to be a more effective barrier to infection than other alternatives.
  • Has anti inflammatory characteristics [3]
  • May assist in treating nasal congestion [5] and related allergies although what little evidence there is remains inconclusive
