Colloidal silver has become one of the most popular nutritional supplements in America over the last two decades. By some estimates it is now used regularly by roughly 10 million Americans to help cure infections, fight disease and restore health.
But there has been a dirty little secret lurking in the background, and the big colloidal silver manufacturers hope you'll never find out about it.
What's that dirty little secret? It's quite simple. Manufacturers of this powerful natural infection-fighting agent have been grossly overcharging you for decades. In fact, a tiny 4-ounce bottle of store-bought colloidal silver contains only about six cents worth of colloidal silver.
6 Cents Worth of Colloidal Silver for $29?
Yes, that's right. It costs them about six cents to make four ounces worth of colloidal silver, yet greedy colloidal silver vendors charge you anywhere from $29 to $59 for that same tiny amount!
That's a whopping 2,400% mark-up on every bottle sold. No other nutritional supplement on earth is so cheap to make, yet so expensive to buy.
Outraged? You ought to be. But it gets even worse. According to one recent study, only about 43% of the commercial colloidal silver products tested contained the actual concentration of silver listed on the bottle. Some contained no silver particles at all!
In other words, not only have colloidal silver manufacturers been grossly overcharging you for this powerful natural infection-fighting agent, but many of them have apparently been short-changing you even further by selling you severely diluted solutions!
The Good News!
Here's the good news: Thanks to a recent breakthrough in colloidal silver-making technology, you can now completely bypass the unfair price monopoly held by colloidal silver manufacturers. In fact, you make your own fresh, pure, unadulterated, therapeutic-quality colloidal silver - in the comfort and privacy of your own home - for about 36 cents a quart!
Yes, that's under $1.50 a gallon for a product many health food stores and internet vendors are charging a whopping $10 an ounce for!
And believe it or not, because of the brand new innovation in colloidal silver-making technology we're going to tell you about in this article, the homemade stuff is now as good as any colloidal silver you can buy commercially - even better!
How can this be possible? First, a little background:
How Commercial Colloidal Silver Manufacturers
It all started about 15 years ago when a brilliant physicist named Dr. Robert Beck figured out how to produce a miniature version of the larger machines used by colloidal silver manufacturers to make colloidal silver. Dr. Beck's little device, while admittedly crude, was very effective. In size, it was only slightly larger than a deck of cards. And it was powered by three 9-volt batteries. Best of all, this nifty little device allowed users to make 16 ounce batches of colloidal silver at a time, for just pennies!
Soon, tens of thousands of colloidal silver users had purchased these little generators and began making and using their own colloidal silver. This threw the big commercial manufacturers into a royal tizzy. The saw their lucrative monopoly on colloidal silver sales falling apart right in front of their eyes, and all of the exorbitant profits they'd been making going right down the drain. After all, if even a fraction of the roughly ten million colloidal silver users across North America began making their own colloidal silver, the big commercial manufacturers would face millions of dollars in sales losses annually.
So, in order to protect their profits and help cripple the sales of the little home colloidal silver generators, some of the big commercial colloidal silver manufacturers did something quite underhanded. So underhanded, in fact, it would have made any crooked politician proud. They began floating nasty rumors throughout the natural health community, stating that the colloidal silver solutions made with the tiny, battery-operated colloidal silver generators were somehow "toxic" or even "poisonous" because a compound called silver chloride was formed in the process.
The Big Lie...
Of course, the fact that silver chloride has never been demonstrated to be "toxic" or "poisonous" was completely irrelevant to them. And the fact that silver chloride was first produced commercially by Dr. Leonard Herschberg of Johns-Hopkins University in 1923, and was used for decades in hospital settings with no ill effects, was completely ignored.
Also ignored was the fact that silver chloride is so harmless it has no toxicology ratings listed in the various government toxicology registries such as the ATSDR, NIOSH-RTECS, the HSDB, or the EPA.
None of this deterred the big colloidal silver manufacturers from making such a bogus claim. The only thing that mattered to them was bringing the sales of the popular little home colloidal silver generators to a screeching halt.
Of course, the tens of thousands of users of these little devices knew better. They continued making and using their own colloidal silver for only pennies per batch, curing their own infections and significantly boosting their health in the process.
But unfortunately, many people who were not as familiar with colloidal silver actually believed the carefully orchestrated campaign of rumors and lies being promulgated by some of the big colloidal silver manufacturers. Out of fear of ingesting harmless "silver chloride," they refrained from purchasing the little generators. And as a result, they continued to pay through the nose for those tiny four-ounce bottles of colloidal silver sold by the big commercial manufacturers.
The Battle Continues
Since that time, the battle between commercial manufacturers of colloidal silver, and manufacturers of the little home colloidal silver generators, has continued unabated. But now, thanks to a brand new innovation in colloidal silver-making technology, that battle is finally about to end for good. And the big colloidal silver manufacturers don't like it one bit.
Why? Because we've discovered a brand new kind of colloidal silver generator that not only makes fresh, pure, unadulterated colloidal silver without producing silver chloride, it also makes highly electrically charged silver particles that are smaller in size than anything the big colloidal silver manufacturers have ever been able to produce.
More on that in just a moment. But first...
What's Really Wrong With Conventional Colloidal Silver Generators?
Since the time Dr. Beck invented that first, relatively crude little battery-operated home colloidal silver generator some 15 years ago, things have changed. Many new types of home colloidal silver generator have been developed. The market is practically flooded with them. Some run on batteries. Some run on household AC power. Some use complex computer technology. One model even plugs into a standard household phone jack, and runs on phone power! And while these new units have brought home colloidal silver-making technology out of the dark ages and into the realm of relatively modern technological sophistication, there is still one problem that has not (until now) successfully been resolved: all too often these nifty little home units produce overly-large silver particles that are difficult for the human body to absorb, utilize and afterwards, excrete.
Frequently, the particles are so large they do not stay properly suspended in the distilled water they are made in for extended periods of time. Instead, in a very short period of time the overly-large silver particles begin to lose their electrical charge, fall out of suspension in the solution and slowly drop to the bottom of the storage bottle (it's called "precipitation" of the silver particles), leaving a thin silvery-grey coating on the bottom. This of course vastly decreases the potency and effectiveness of the colloidal silver solution.
Interestingly enough, the big commercial colloidal silver manufacturers have known about this little problem all along, and have never mentioned it in spite of their utter animosity toward colloidal silver generators. Why have they not capitalized on this flaw and spilled the beans? The answer is simple: It is because all too frequently their expensive bottled brands of colloidal silver - sold in health food stores throughout the nation - have the very same problem. They are filled with overly-large silver particles!
Why Is Particle Size So Important?
So why is particle size so important in colloidal silver usage? In order for colloidal silver to do its job - which is to help wipe out infections and restore a state of health and sustained immunity in the human body - the silver particles in a colloidal silver solution have to be small enough for the body to properly absorb, transport, utilize and excrete. Thus, the smaller they are, the more effective the colloidal silver solution will be.
In other words, smaller silver particles are absorbed better. They are much more easily transported deep into the cells and tissues, just like minerals from the foods you eat. They are utilized by the body with far greater efficiency. And they are much easier for the body to excrete afterwards, which means your risk of excessive silver buildup in the tissues and organs is virtually nil.
Conversely, the larger the silver particles are, the less effective the colloidal silver solution will be! Larger particles are harder for the body to absorb…harder for the body to transport into the cells and tissues…harder for the body to utilize…and more difficult for the body to excrete afterwards.
So it stands to reason that a colloidal silver solution consisting chiefly of tiny sub-microscopic silver particles is far more effective than one consisting chiefly of overly-large silver particles.
In fact, the only way to get at truly deep-seated infections - such as those caused by "stealth pathogens" that tend to hide deep within the cells and tissues of the human body - is if the silver particles are small enough for the body to absorb deep into the cells and tissues in the same way it absorbs other needed mineral nutrients such as iron, copper, chromium, zinc, etc. And the silver particles have to be small enough for the body to excrete after they have done their work, so you don't get an excessive buildup of silver in the body over time.
Unfortunately, most colloidal silver - whether produced by a conventional home colloidal silver generator, or sold in health food stores by the big commercial manufacturers - simply does not contain small enough silver particles to handle the tough infections. The vast majority of the particles are too large to do the body any good at all when it comes to fighting the tougher, deep-seated infections.
Introducing: The Brand New Micro-Particle
That's why we're so excited about the brand new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from our good friends at www.TheSilverEdge.com. It's a unique new kind of colloidal silver generator that is truly unlike anything that's ever been produced.
In fact, this new generator can only be described as a bona-fide breakthrough in colloidal silver-making technology. In our opinion, it is literally destined to help put greedy commercial colloidal silver manufacturers completely out of business.
Why? Because unlike most other colloidal silver generators that produce silver particles in the range of 20 to 200 microns or larger (by comparison, a normal red blood cell is about 7 microns) the new Micro-Particle unit has been specially designed to produce tiny, highly absorbable sub-microscopic silver particles, many of which are only a fraction of a single micron in size!
Indeed, the brand new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator produces silver particles as small as .0008 microns in size. That's only eight ten-thousands of a single micron!
Generally speaking, even bottled colloidal silver products produced by the major commercial colloidal silver manufacturers do not contain silver particles that are anywhere near this small, though they may claim to. Unlike bottled colloidal silver in which the suspended particles can clearly be seen by shining a tiny laser pointer light through the solution, micro-particle silver is so small it is barely visible even under laser light.
About As Close to Being "Dissolved" As You Can Get!
That's because it is so small, it has virtually no reflective surface. This is just about as close to "dissolved" silver particles as you can get. And because the silver particles are so small, the solution is crystal clear, even though every batch you make is literally teaming with billions of microscopic silver particles.
In fact, these silver particles are so small, to measure them requires the use of a powerful multi-million dollar piece of laboratory equipment called a Transmission Electron Microscope, operating at a whopping 175,000x magnification!
Compare that to commercially manufactured colloidal silver, the particles of which can generally be seen at a mere 20,000x or 30,000x magnification, and you will see that we are talking about a breakthrough in home colloidal silver-making technology that is so phenomenal, nothing else like it has ever been produced!
Vastly More Effective Than Conventional Colloidal Silver!
Indeed, micro-particle silver is thought to be vastly more effective than conventional commercial colloidal silver against hard-to-kill viruses and other deep-seated microorganisms such as those in the insidious mycloplasmas family of pathogens which are now implicated in the onset of numerous forms of chronic degenerative disease including cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, Crohn's colitis, Type II diabetes, multiple sclerosis (MS), Parkinson's disease, Wegener's disease, and collagen-vascular diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and Alzheimer's.
In fact, experts say the micro-particle silver produces literally phenomenal healing results, particularly in "acute care" situations involving serious deep-seated infections where prescription antibiotics or even standard colloidal silver has failed to work, or in situations where some form of chronic degenerative disease associated with mycoplasmas infection has set in.
For example, it has been widely reported that Dr. Darryl See, M.D., former co-director of the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia Clinic at the University of California at Irvine has been having incredible success treating patients with micro-particle colloidal silver. According to Health Sciences Institute, Dr. See says he has witnessed the DNA-PCR tests of many of his patients with known mycoplasmas infections turn from positive to negative with the use of these tiny silver particles (see Mycoplasmas as agents of human disease, Health Sciences Institute, Vol. 2, #10, April 1998.)
This offers profound hope to millions who suffer from such debilitating hidden infections and the subsequent chronic degenerative diseases these insidious microorganisms can cause.
In summary, the new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator has been specifically designed to produce a dramatically smaller range of silver particles than anything that's ever been available. This means it can do everything standard colloidal silver has become famous for in terms of killing infection and restoring health and immunity. But because the particles are so small, they are far more easily utilized by the human body, and far more easily excreted. Therefore, it can be used with phenomenal success in cases of acute, long-term chronic degenerative diseases where deep-seated infections caused by "stealth pathogens" such as those from the mycoplasmas family are suspected.

Say 'Goodbye!' to Over-Priced Commercial Colloidal Silver Forever!
Finally, the big commercial manufacturers of colloidal silver have met their match. Now there is no longer any reason to allow them to continue gouging you with exorbitant prices.
With the brand new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator, you can make all of the high-quality colloidal silver you want, quickly and easily, in the comfort and privacy of your own home, for only about 36 cents a quart. And you can do so for the rest of your life!
When you consider the fact that many commercial brands of colloidal silver cost as much as $29 or more for a tiny four-ounce bottle, you can see that your very first one-quart batch of micro-particle colloidal silver literally pays for the entire cost of the unit!
After that, your only real costs are the distilled water (about a buck a gallon at Wal-Mart). And once each year or so you'll need to spend $35 to replace the set of pure, .999 fine silver wire (12 gauge) that comes with your generator. Additional sets of the pure .999 fine silver wire can be purchased at any time directly from The Silver Edge either by phone at 1-888-528-0559, or online at www.TheSilverEdge.com.
Indeed, with a brand new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator, a single set of pure silver wire costing you only $35 will allow you to produce over $24,000 worth of colloidal silver (no kidding!) over the course of a year. And your only other cost is the distilled water!
That's about as close to producing colloidal silver for "free" as you can get! With a brand new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator, you can literally afford to bathe in colloidal silver if you want. Indeed, many users brew up a one-quart batch and add it nightly to their bath water, for the soothing and invigorating effect it has on the skin.
When you factor in the cost of the silver wire and the cost of the distilled water, it comes out to about 36 cents a quart or less to make high-quality micro-particle colloidal silver that just blows away the commercially prepared brands costing up to $29 for a tiny 4-ounce bottle. And that's worth a LOT, we think you'll agree!
