Colloidal Silver is a pure, all natural substance consisting of distilled water and submicroscopic clusters of the mineral silver. Colloidal Silver is manufactured by a non-chemical process where the microscopic particles of silver are held in suspension by an electromagnetic charge placed on each particle.
What does structured silver do?
Many studies seem to reflect that Colloidal Silver may work as a broad spectrum antibiotic. While most antibiotics are effective against about a half-dozen disease causing organisms (germs, bacteria, fungi, parasites and some viruses), silver is believed effective against over 650 organisms. Colloidal Silver is tasteless, non-toxic to living tissue and can be taken orally or applied externally.
Colloidal Silver safe to take?
The Environmental Protection Agency's Poison Control Center reports no toxicity listing for Colloidal Silver, these reports seem to reflect that it is considering it harmless in any concentration. Other studies and information seem to show that Colloidal Silver is the safest and best all around natural antibiotic germ-fighter we have.
What is Structured Silver Water effective against?
Many studies seem to reflect that Colloidal Silver has been proven to be useful against many different infections and is toxic in concentrations of 3 – 5 ppm against all species of fungi, bacteria, protozoa, parasites and certain viruses.
What is a micron?
A micron is one millionth of a meter, in comparison a millimeter is one thousandths of a meter and a meter is approximately 39.37 inches long.
What is a colloid?
A colloid is a substance that consists of ultra-fine particles that do not dissolve but remain in suspension. These ultra-fine particles are larger than most molecules but so small they cannot be seen by the naked eye. Not all brands of Colloidal Silver are true colloids. In a true colloid of silver, the ideal size of the Colloidal Silver particles fall within the range of 0.005 – 0.015 microns in diameter. These particles are electrically charged to activate the germicidal quality of the Colloidal Silver and allow the particles to remain suspended in water.
How does this Salus Structured Silver generator make colloidal silver?
Most generators utilize a electrolysis process which allows extremely fine structured silver water particles to be suspended in solution by the tiny charge placed on the particles. This method replaces the need for any chemicals, stabilizers or proteins and the product can be called a true structured silver.
Does particle size matter?
Particle size is a crucial factor. Much of the efficiency of the colloid solution depends on the actual size and uniformity of silver particles. Particles that are too large are less effective. The preferred particle size for optimum results and safety of use should be from 0.005 – 0.015 microns in diameter.
What about the color of the final product?
A excellent indicator of the quality of Colloidal Silver is the color. As the size of each silver particle gets larger, the color of the solution ranges from yellow to brown to red to gray and black. Colloidal Silver that is produced using the proper electrolysis method is a different color than the grind or chemically produced colloids, except in the case of some products that contain artificial food coloring to get the right color.
The ideal form of Colloidal Silver is a clear to light yellow color, which in part has to do with using ozonized water in the production of the Colloidal Silver. Various experiments show that using ozonized water may produce the smallest Colloidal Silver particles.
