Is Colloidal Silver Truly Effective?


 

As with anything, there are passionate arguments for and against colloidal silver and like politics, it is difficult to tell who speaks the truth, who has the better good at heart and who has personal interests involved.

We use it, we make it and we sell it; but we highly recommend that everyone make their own - that way you KNOW exactly what is in it!  Either way, we want you to try it and judge for yourself.

Brigham Young University is a world renowned institution of higher learning and in 1999 the Microbiology Department published the following after testing a colloidal silver solutrion.  The results speak for themself:
