What Is Colloidal Silver?

What is Colloidal Silver?


Colloidal silver is a completely natural, liquid mineral supplement that is sold in every health food store in North America that is made with a device called a colloidal silver generator. This device pulls microscopic particles of silver from a pure silver electrode immersed in water. These microscopic silver particles are held in suspension in the solution by the electrical charge left on each atom after being sintered away from the silver electrode. This suspension of a solid in a liquid is called a colloid or colloidal suspension.

Pure silver, by itself, has been believed for thousands of years to have powerful, broad-spectrum infection-fighting qualities – even against the most stubborn of pathogens.

When the process for making colloidal silver was discovered in the late 1800s shortly after Edison harnessed electricity, it became the most popular natural infection-fighting agent.

It can be used safely internally as well as externally. When ingested, these tiny particles of silver travel throughout the body just like any other mineral supplement before being excreted through your body’s normal channels of elimination.  

According to a Brigham Young University study , as the silver particles come into contact with pathogenic microorganisms that are susceptible to silver, the silver inactivates and kills the microbes, thus preventing them from colonizing, spreading and causing disease.

HOW Does it Work?


Silver suffocates pathogens and inhibits their reproductive cycles by reacting with peptidoglycans in the pathogen cells.

Mammalian cells do not contain peptidoglycans which explains the selective nature of silver.

Silver is not disease specific but cell structure specific.
