OUR FAVORITE- “Colloidal Silver”
Bio-Active Silver Hydrosol delivers advantages no other manufacturer can match:
-Actively Charged: >98% positively charged silver ions and nanoclusters.
-Easily Absorbed: Unprecedented particle size of 0.8 nanometers allows for easy absorption and excretion.
-Less is More: Ultra-small particle size results in greater surface area, making our low concentration of 23 ppm more effective than brands up to 1,000 ppm.
Improves human health, antimicrobial benefits including wound healing….
The father of medicine, Hippocrates, first described silver’s antimicrobial benefits, writing about its healing and anti-disease properties. Silver’s antimicrobial and wound healing properties were applied to battlefield medicine in the 1800s. Fine silver wires used for sutures contributed to faster healing, and silver nitrate was used to treat wound and skin ulcers. Silver was also used to treat syphilis during the Civil War, and in the 1880s, silver nitrate began to be used to prevent infections in the eyes of newborns (not that we agree with this for everyone but you can see how its antimicrobial benefits have been used in allopathic medicine for a long time now).
Current uses of silver coating include invasive medical devices such as catheters and endotracheal tubing, preventing bacterial colonization and biofilm formation. Silver-based water purification systems are installed and used on the international space station.
The health benefits of silver have been widely studied for thousands of years, and the effectiveness of its contemporary use for immune support and topical healing applications has been significantly substantiated. While the Ancients did not know the chemical and biological mechanisms of how silver metal preserved their drinking water, the modern peer-reviewed literature has elucidated them. We now know, it is the outermost silver atoms of the silver nanoparticle that undergo surface oxidation and, when mixed into a pure water medium, subsequently release bio-active silver ions into the water, which provides the health benefits.13-15
The Different Types of Dietary Silver
The four basic categories of Silver Dietary Supplements are:
1.Bio-Active Silver Hydrosol-a mixture of silver ions and silver nanoclusters (the smallest particles achievable).
2.Colloidal Silver-small particles of metallic silver suspended in water.
3.Ionic Silver-silver ions stabilized with other reagents or compounds.
4.Homemade-poor quality, uncontrolled silver concentrations and, thus, the most dangerous.
Colloidal silver is the generic term for all forms of silver marketed as dietary supplements. It can also refer to substances that include particles in suspension. Several other additional terms are used describing types of colloidal silver. Several other additional terms are used describing types of colloidal silver.
“True colloidal silver” is a marketing term. The term does not distinguish the product form any other colloidal silver products. It infers that the solution contains 100% particulates, which are unstable without stabilizing proteins or chemicals. Large particles are largely wasted, as the body cannot convert them into the bio-active form during the short time between ingestion and elimination.
“Pharmaceutical Grade” is a term that has a strict legal definition, and when used without meeting the following standards, is just another marketing term. It refers to compounds and raw ingredients that have met strict standards for purity and processing conditions. These standards are established by the US Pharmacopoeia (USP).
An ingredient that is pharmaceutical grade has been verified by an outside agency (not the ingredient’s manufacturer) to be at least 99% pure.
The manufacturing processes and facilities used to produce the product must be regularly inspected by the USP to ensure they meet strict standards for quality control. Random samples are taken of the products and tested to ensure that quality control and purity are maintained over time. A pharmaceutical grade supplement is guaranteed to be what it says it is. Even low levels of contamination can cause a human-grade product to be deadly to someone with a severe allergy. Always ask for proof of USP approval from any supplement company claiming their product to be “pharmaceutical grade.”
Homemade colloidal silver is produced without the controls necessary in order to verify its concentration, purity, amount of bio-active silver and particle size. It increases toxicity risks and greatly increases the risk for causing argyric reactions.
Ionic silver solutions do not necessarily contain silver particulates. Silver ions and particulates exist in a complex equilibrium cycle, and their availability can vary with changes brought about by the presence of light, starches, proteins and synthetic or natural molecules. Ionic silver solutions often have chemical stabilizers added to extend their shelf-life.
Bio-Active Silver Hydrosol is composed of only 99.999% pure silver and purified water that meets USP-NF standards for Pharmaceutical Grade Purified Water. It is a unique mixture of the most active and effective species of silver – positively charged silver ions and particles of an unprecedented size as small as 0.8 nm. With the smallest particles and highest charge ratio, it is the ultimate refinement of colloidal silver.
Bio-Active Silver vs. Other Forms of Colloidal Silver
-A unique mixture of bio-active silver ions and nanoparticles, the smallest particles achievable
-Only 2 ingredients, 99.999% pure silver and pharmaceutical grade, purified water
-Offers the most effective formula available with greater than 98% bio-active silver
-“Smallest” particles create a reservoir ready to convert to bio-active silver for continued delivery of immune support
-Mostly a suspension containing large neutral silver particles
-Added ingredient(s) to keep the large silver particles in suspension
-Leading brands of colloidal silver have less than 13% bio-active silver
-Larger neutral silver particles offer less bio-active silver (from less surface area)
Recommended Usage: Safe for the whole family. According to the EPA (CASRN 7440-22-4) daily Oral Silver Reference Dose (RfD) applied to 23 ppm, one may ingest 76,650 servings safely over 70 years.
