What Is Colloidal Silver Used For?
Colloidal Silver is a name commonly assigned to all anti-microbial silver-based products. It is possible to have ionic (fully dissolved) silver, as well as metallic (colloidal, in small particles) silver in the same solution, yielding perhaps the most effective product. With colloidal silver, more does not necessarily mean better. Concentrations greater than 10 parts per million seem to cause more trouble than benefit.
Silver has been used for fighting germs and preventing infections for centuries, and is now (again) becoming a popular form of alternative medicine as an antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal agent. Water-soluble silver is the perfect natural alternative to antibiotics.
Colloidal Silver works as a catalyst, disabling the enzyme that one-celled bacteria, fungi, and viruses use for their metabolism. Because no known disease-causing organism can live in the presence of even minute traces of silver, Colloidal Silver is effective against more than 650 different disease-causing pathogens including bacteria, fungi, and viruses. Silver kills only anaerobic (non-oxygen breathing) bacteria, and not the friendly bacteria in the digestive tract.
Because its a naturally occurring element, silver is not easy to patent, so it cannot be owned. This makes it subject to unwarranted attacks by competitors following their economic interests.
Pioneers trekking across the American West found that if they placed silver or copper coins in their casks of drinking water, it kept the water safe from bacteria, algae, etc. All along the frontier, silver dollars were put in milk to keep it fresh.
Today you can use colloidal silver to
- keep drinking water from becoming infected with microorganisms bacteria, fungi, mold = no skunky water.
- keep leftovers from becoming spoiled by growing bacteria = no intestinal infections.
- keep canned or frozen foods safe = use less salt or sugar, or other preservatives.
- stop must and mildew from growing in dark damp places = fresh smelling bathrooms and basements.
- sterilize surfaces, including toilet seats, door handles, counter tops, cutting boards = stop germs from spreading.
- keep fresh cleaning utensils = mops, sponges, toilet brushes, plungers dont go skunky.
- keep hot tubs and whirl pools bacteria-free without harsh chemicals = enjoy your dip without the chlorine smell.
You can use colloidal silver for any application instead of bleach or sanitizers.
