Is NanoSilver the Answer to Ovarian Cancer?
Guest article by natural health author Tony M. Isaacs
Could nanoparticle silver be an important answer in combatting deadly ovarian cancer?
According to a peer-reviewed clinical study published in the prestigious International Journal of Molecular Science, that answer appears to be a resounding yes!
This laboratory test-tube clinical study found that not only is nanoparticle silver very effective against ovarian cancer cells in general, it’s even more effective against ovarian cancer stem cells — the very cells that make ovarian cancer and other cancers so resistant to mainstream treatments.
Here’s what I’ve learned from the study…
Cancer stem cells make cancers continue to grow. And it’s stem cells that make cancer return time and again, particularly ovarian cancer.
Researchers have known for some time now that silver nanoparticles are effective in destroying cancer. Indeed, there have been over 50 clinical studies, both test tube and animal, proving it (see Colloidal Silver and Cancer: a Surprising Look).
Now, thanks to the study we’ll be discussing in the remainder of this article, researchers also know that silver nanoparticles destroy cancer stem cells, as well. The implications of this finding are huge, because it means nanosilver might just be the means of stopping resistant forms of cancer from continuing to spread!
After all, ovarian cancer is one of the most difficult cancers to treat with mainstream medicine. Despite initial positive responses to chemo and/or radiation, the cancer can quickly become resistant. And even when the cancer appears to be initially defeated, it almost invariably returns in a form that is more difficult to treat.
Ovarian cancer stem cells (OvCSCs) have been identified as the primary culprit that makes ovarian cancer so difficult to defeat. We’ll take a longer look at this astonishing clinical finding throughout this article.
Background: Ovarian Cancer and Cancer Stem Cells
Cancer stem cells (CSCs) are undifferentiated cancer cells found within tumors or in blood cancers.
“Undifferentiated” means they have the ability to turn into other types of cancer cells. In other words, they can give rise to all cell types found in a particular cancer, and thereby sustain the growth of the cancer.
According to Stanford Medicine’s Ludwig Center for Cancer Stem Cell Research and Medicine:
“The Stem Cell Theory of Cancer” proposes that “among all cancerous cells, a few act as stem cells that reproduce themselves and sustain the cancer, much like normal stem cells normally renew and sustain our organs and tissues.”
The Ludwig Center goes on to say that the stem cell theory has important implications for the treatment of cancer.
“For instance, many new anti-cancer therapies are evaluated based on their ability to shrink tumors. But if the therapies are not killing the cancer stem cells, the tumor will soon grow back (often with a vexing resistance to the previously used therapy).
An analogy would be a weeding technique that is evaluated based on how low it can chop the weed stalks—but no matter how low the weeks are cut, if the roots aren’t taken out, the weeds will just grow back.
Another important implication is that it’s the cancer stem cells that give rise to metastases (i.e., when cancer travels from one part of the body to another) and can also act as a reservoir of cancer cells that may cause a relapse after surgery, radiation or chemotherapy has eliminated all observable signs of a cancer.”
It’s well worth noting that mainstream chemotherapy and radiation treatments not only fail to eliminate cancer stem cells, they actually create cancer stem cells which have been estimated to be 30 times more difficult to eradicate than normal cancer cells — a fact demonstrated by researchers at the UCLA Department of Radiation Oncology at UCLA’s Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center.
Let that sink in for a minute: mainstream treatments not only often fail to cure cancer, they can make cancer even more deadly!
Okay, now that we have a bit of background, onward to the important study and its very exciting findings.
What the Researchers Discovered
The name of this clinical study is “Differential Cytotoxic Potential of Silver Nanoparticles in Human Ovarian Cancer Cells and Ovarian Cancer Stem Cells.”
It was conducted by scientists at the Department of Stem Cell and Regenerative Biotechnology at Konkuk University in Seoul, South Korea and was published in the prestigious peer-reviewed International Journal of Molecular Science in December, 2016.
In the study’s Abstract, the study authors explained the purpose of the study this way:
“The cancer stem cell (CSC) hypothesis postulates that cancer cells are composed of hierarchically-organized subpopulations of cells with distinct phenotypes and tumorigenic capacities.
As a result, CSCs have been suggested as a source of disease recurrence.
Recently, silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) have been used as antimicrobial, disinfectant, and antitumor agents. However, there is no study reporting the effects of AgNPs on ovarian cancer stem cells (OvCSCs).
In this study, we investigated the cytotoxic effects of AgNPs [i.e., silver nanoparticles] and their mechanism of causing cell death in A2780 (human ovarian cancer cells) and OvCSCs derived from A2780.”
In other words, the study authors specifically looked at the mechanism through which silver nanoparticles cause cell death in human ovarian cancer cells and ovarian cancer stem cells.
The study authors went on to describe how the cytotoxicity of silver nanoparticles were assessed and measured. They noted that:
“Our observations showed that treatment with AgNPs resulted in severe cytotoxicity in both ovarian cancer cells and OvCSCs.”
In other words, the silver nanoparticles handily killed both ovarian cancer cells and ovarian cancer stem cells.
The researchers then concluded the Abstract section of their study with the following statement:
“These findings suggest that AgNPs can be utilized in the development of novel nanotherapeutic molecules for the treatment of ovarian cancers by specific targeting the [ovarian cancer stem cells] subpopulation of cells.”
Did you happen to catch the key phrase there, folks — the phrase “the development of novel nanotherapeutic molecules”?
The term “novel nanotherapeutic molecules” means new, unique molecules. Molecules that mainstream medicine can patent and profit from. And make no mistake, ladies and gents, finding patentable compounds that can be used for huge profits is the driving force behind the vast majority of scientific studies.
Scientific studies are not cheap – far from it – even in vitro test tube studies like the one being discussed here.
Mainstream medicine is all about profits and it has little incentive to prove that that nanoparticles alone might have benefits against ovarian cancer stem cells or any other cancer cells – not when such nanoparticles can be produced easily at home in colloidal silver solutions that cost mere pennies per quart!
Yet that’s precisely what the study indicates – that silver nanoparticles in and of themselves could be very effective against ovarian cancer cells and ovarian cancer stem cells!
Let’s take a look at some of the study highlights:
In Section 1 of the study, the Introduction section, the study authors accurately noted that ovarian cancer is “the fifth most common type of cancer among all cancers, and the second most common gynecological malignancy.”
They further noted that the American Cancer Society (ACS) had estimated that 22,280 women will be newly diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2016 and that 14,240 women were expected to die from ovarian cancer that same year.
As noted by the authors, ovarian cancer cells have “increased tumorigenicity and differentiating capacity” compared with other cancer stem cells (CSCs), meaning that ovarian cancer cells have a greater ability to give rise to progressively growing malignant and benign tumors.
In describing typical mainstream treatment of ovarian cancer, the study authors wrote that the primary treatment is surgery, and is usually followed by platinum-based chemotherapy.
Although most women respond positively to the primary treatment, eventually, even with the follow-up chemotherapy, there is recurrence of the cancer due to a high degree of heterogeneity (diversity) that is a key characteristic of ovarian cancer.
After the failure of primary surgical treatment and secondary chemotherapy treatment, a combination of toxic chemotherapy agents is employed. This combination chemotherapy treatment is also usually beneficial initially.
But once again, resistance eventually develops to the chemotherapy drugs, and the ovarian cancer cells again begin to spread.
The study Introduction maintains that “the unique toxicity profiles of AgNPs may also offer an opportunity to exploit specific vulnerabilities in cancer, provided that an appropriate disease target could be identified (likely CSCs).” And it describes why silver nanoparticles could be especially useful against cancer:
“Nanoparticles have become widely utilized because of their unique properties and diverse applications in industry, cosmetics, biotechnology, and nanomedicine.
Silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) are one of the most commercialized nanoparticles worldwide among various nanomaterials.
AgNPs are used as antibacterial, anticancer, and antiangiogenic agents because of their unique properties, such as optic and catalytic features, and they have potential for use in the creation of novel and advanced functional materials.”
Yep, once again the researchers are talking about creating and profiting from the use of “novel” “advanced functional materials” utilizing silver.
But I’ll once again point out that this clinical study was not conducted on any “novel” silver nanoparticles or compounds. It was conducted on silver nanoparticles similar to the ones you can make at home for pennies a quart!
The Introduction to the study also reiterated that to the best of the study authors’ knowledge there have been no previous studies on the cytotoxic effect of silver nanoparticles on different subpopulations of ovarian CSCs.
Therefore, said the authors, they designed a study based on three main objectives:
- First, to isolate different subpopulations of CSCs from human ovarian cancer cells.
- Second, to evaluate the cytotoxic potential of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) on bulk cancer cells (A2780) and different subpopulations of ovarian cancer stem cells (OvCSCs).
- And third, to assess the effect of AgNPs on self-renewal capacity of ovarian cancer stem cells’ (which makes them so stubborn to eradicate) and to determine the mechanisms of cellular death induced by silver nanoparticles in bulk cancer cells and a specific subpopulation of OvCSCs (i.e., ovarian cancer stem cells).
Silver Particle Size and Dosage
In the beginning of Section 2 of the study, titled “Results and Discussion”, the various methods used to conduct the study, such as UV-VIS spectroscopy and transmission electron microscopy were described and we’re informed that the silver nanoparticles used for the study averaged about 50 nm in diameter.
Then came the critical Section 2.2, titled, “AgNPs Induce Dose- and Time-Dependent Effects on Cell Viability in Human Ovarian Cancer Cells”.
Here, the study explains that before the researchers examined the effect of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) on ovarian cancer stem cells (OvCSCs) they first examined the cytotoxic effects of AgNPs on the bulk ovarian cells, which they used for later isolation of the stem cells, by exposing the bulk ovarian cancer cells to different concentrations of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) ranging from 20 nanograms per milliliter (ng/mL) to 10,000 ng/mL for 12 and 24-hour periods.
After the various exposures, a cell viability cell counting assay kit called CCK-8 was used to determine how viable the cells remained.
What the Researchers Found
In the words of the study authors:
“The results of the CCK-8 assay, which measured water-soluble formazan dye produced by metabolic activity of live cells, showed that cell viability was decreased after exposure to AgNPs in a time- and dose-dependent manner.“
In other words, the initial findings of the researchers is that the cancer cells could not remain viable in the presence of silver nanoparticles.
Then, when the details of the various dosages and the two different time durations (12 hours and 24 hours) results were listed, the study really got interesting for your friendly author.
To further quote the study:
“A2780 cells (bulk ovarian cancer cells) were treated with various concentrations of AgNPs for 12 and 24 h, and the results suggest that AgNPs were able to reduce the cell viability of A2780 cells in a dose-dependent manner.
After 12 h of treatment, AgNPs were found to be cytotoxic to the cells at concentrations of 200 ng/mL but this effect was significant at 10,000 ng/mL
“When the same cells were treated with 20–10,000 ng/mL for 24 h, significant cytotoxicity was observed even at 50 ng/mL.
It suggests that the effect of AgNPs is clearly influenced by the time of incubation and dose.
Finally, we determined minimum inhibitory concentration of AgNPs at 24 h, which was found to be 1000 ng/mL
Interestingly, at higher concentration at above 1000 ng/mL, the toxicity is not significant; it maintains the same level of toxicity.”
Why, you might ask, did I find this section of the study so intriguing?
Here’s why: The maximum cytotoxic activity of silver nanoparticles on ovarian cancer cells exposed for 12 hours was found to be 10,000 ng/mL. When you convert that to parts per million (PPM), it comes to 10 PPM.
That’s a comparatively very low dose of nanosilver.
I also took note of the fact that the longer exposure of 24 hours determined that maximum toxicity was achieved at only 1,000 ng/mL, or 10% of the maximum effective dose when the exposure time is 24 hours.
In other words, doses of only 1 ppm were effective against the ovarian cancer cells, as long as the nanosilver was left in contact with the cancer cells for 24 hours.
Now, keep in mind that this was a test tube study, and not a human study. In other words, humans with ovarian cancer were not given silver. And the human body is extremely complex compared to cells in a test tube.
But I find it quite fascinating that such an extremely low dose of nanosilver could be so effective, at least in the test tube.
Even More Effective Against Cancer Stem Cells than Bulk Cells
After the researchers measured the cytotoxicity of AgNPs on bulk ovarian cancer cells, they separated the ovarian cancer stem cells from the bulk cells and were astonished to find that AgNPs were even more toxic to the deadly stem cells than they were to bulk cells!
When the researchers examined the cytotoxicity of AgNPs on ovarian cancer stem cells, they found significant inhibitory effects on the cancer cells at silver nanoparticle concentrations ranging between 20 and 200 ng/mL.
That’s 0.02 ppm and 0.2 ppm, respectively!
And they observed a dramatic effect at concentrations between 500 and 10,000 ng/mL, which is 0.5 ppm and 10 ppm, respectively. That’s astonishing information, I think you’ll agree.
Importantly, the researchers found that silver nanoparticles showed “significant higher toxicity in dose dependent manner at above 1000 ng/mL” when compared to bulk cells.
In other words, the toxicity of the nanosilver to the cancer stem cells was greater at above 1 ppm, than it was at concentrations below 1 ppm.
Let that sink in a minute. Silver nanoparticles were very effective against bulk cancer cells in the study. But they were even more effective against the cancer stem cells which are normally the most difficult cancer cells to treat.
Indeed, they’re the cells many researchers believe to be responsible for continued tumor growth and the return of cancer. In other words, they’re the cells which make ovarian and other cancers often next to impossible for mainstream medicine to beat.
One measurement the researchers used was lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) leakage. LDH is a well-known marker for the integrity of cell membranes and cell viability.
LDH accumulation, or leakage, comes as a result of the breakdown of the cancer cell’s plasma membrane and the alteration of its permeability. It happens at the stage of secondary necrosis (cell death) at the late stage of apoptosis.
In other words, the silver nanoparticles target the membranes of the cancer cells, and cause them to being to leak cellular fluids, leading to cellular death.
When the researchers measured the amount of LDH leakage into the cell culture medium they used after 24 hours of exposure to silver nanoparticles, the researchers found that both the bulk cells and the stem cells they were measuring released LDH in the cell culture media, but the greatest leakage came from the stem cells.
Mt-MP and ROS Generation
The researchers next examined how the silver nanoparticles affected mt-MP and ROS generation.
mtMP stands for “mitochondrial membrane potential” and it’s a measurement of a cell’s membrane permeability which reflects the functional status of cellular mitochondrion related to cancer malignancy.
You see, one important feature of cancer cells is that they refuse to die normal programmed cell death like normal cells do. Instead, they simply keep multiplying and forming colonies of cancer cells such as tumors.
Mitochondrial permeability is responsible for the release of apoptotic proteins. In normal human cells, these proteins help lead to programmed cell death. But very often this does not occur in cancer cells.
So finding a way to induce mitochondrial permeability and the release of apoptic proteins would be a breakthrough for cancer treatments.
The researchers say their study data suggests that exposure to silver nanoparticles “could regulate the level of mt-MP and, in turn, induce apoptosis in both bulk cells and OvCSCs.”
In other words, exposure to silver nanoparticles destroyed the “mitochondrial membrane potential” of the cancer cells, resulting ultimately in death of the cancer cells.
Their findings on ROS are equally fascinating. ROS refers to “reactive oxygen species.” These are chemically reactive compounds that contain oxygen, such as peroxides and superoxide.
ROS play an important role in normal cell death due to the degradation of the cell via oxidation.
The researchers found that exposure of the cancer cells to silver nanoparticles resulted in increased production of ROS, especially in the stubborn ovarian cancer stem cells, resulting ultimately in their deaths.
Silver Also Stopped Tumor Formation
As cancer cells grow and proliferate they begin to form colonies of cells.
To investigate whether silver nanoparticles could impair the colony-formation capacity of ovarian cancer cells, the researchers seeded the same number of both bulk and stem cell subpopulations of cells. The cells were cultured with AgNPs for 14 days.
After 14 days, the colony formation ability was assessed under a microscope after crystal violet staining by counting the number of colonies.
The results indicated that the bulk cells treated with silver nanoparticles, as well as the stem cells treated with silver nanoparticles, had a significantly lower number of colonies compared to non-treated cells.
What’s more, the selected stem cells treated with silver nanoparticles had an even greater reduction in the number of colonies when compared to treated bulk cells. This once again demonstrates that the generally more stubborn cancer stem cells were no match for the silver nanoparticles.
The final part of the Results and Discussion section of the study, titled “AgNPs Induce Differential Apoptotic Responses in Bulk Cells (A2780) and OvCSCs (ALDH+/CD133+)” noted that:
“The cell viability, cytotoxicity, and colony formation assays suggested that OvCSCs were more sensitive to AgNPs than the [bulk] cells” at respective concentrations of AgNPs.
Then the study described the effects of AgNPs on pro-apoptotic genes as well as pro-cell proliferation genes, such as the important p53 tumor-suppressor gene.
Without getting into a prolonged technical discussion, suffice it to say that once again AgNPs performed like the champions they are — up-regulating the tumor suppressor and pro-apoptotic genes and down-regulating the pro-cell proliferation genes.
In the study Conclusion, the authors state:
“The evidence gained from cytotoxicity assays supports that the interaction of nanoparticles with the cell membrane triggered ROS generation and oxidative stress alterations in metabolic pathways and apoptosis.
Treatment of cells with AgNPs had a significant effect on cell viability, LDH leakage, ROS generation, and loss of mt-MP.
However, of these two cell types, OvCSCs seem to be more sensitive than bulk cells.
Further evidence shows that AgNPs inhibited colony formation both in bulk and OvCSCs, and a severe effect was observed in OvCSCs.
The results indicate that AgNPs can be used to specifically target ALDH+/CD133+ cells, providing a possible approach for cancer therapy without side effects.”
To summarize this important study: Silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) greatly inhibited both ovarian cancer bulk cells and ovarian cancer stem cells and their effect on the stem cells was even greater than it was on the bulk cells.

Colloidal Silver, Cancer and Mainstream Medicine Disinformation
Although you might never know it if you relied on the disinformation about colloidal silver found on mainstream medicine sites, the effectiveness of colloidal silver against numerous forms of cancer has been scientifically demonstrated in multiple peer-reviewed studies and papers.
You can find examples in these articles at the Silver Edge website:
- Silver Induces Cervical Cancer Cells to Destroy Themselves
- Colloidal Silver Kills Human Breast and Liver Cancer Cells
- Is Nanosilver the Cure for Neuroblastoma Cancer?
- Silver Nanoparticles Stop Cancer Without Toxic Harm
- Colloidal Silver and Cancer
And there are many more examples in Steve Barwick’s 126-page book, Colloidal Silver and Cancer: a Surprising Look, which documents a whopping 50 clinical studies demonstrating silver’s anti-cancer qualities.
Yet despite all of the many peer-reviewed studies in prestigious scientific journals which have proven how effective nanosilver is against cancer (at least in test tube and animal studies) as well as against pathogens such as multidrug-resistant bacteria (see here, here and here), what you mostly find at mainstream medicine sites is deliberate disinformation which says that the effectiveness of silver is unproven and even warns that colloidal silver is “dangerous.”
Why would mainstream medicine do such a disservice to those whose health it is supposed to serve? The answer is simple: Mainstream medicine serves a different master than the people it is supposed to protect and heal.
That master is greed.
The truth is that when it comes to profits versus healing in mainstream medicine, healing comes in a very distant second.
The trillion dollar a year-plus mainstream medicine industry considers our private bodies to be their exclusive domain when it comes to treating health issues.
In essence, we’re viewed as their private profit centers — and they do not brook competition lightly. That is especially true when it comes to the hundreds of billions of dollars a year cancer industry, and it’s also especially true when it comes to colloidal silver.
If the truth were admitted to and widely known, extremely effective, extremely safe, and extremely inexpensive colloidal silver would be a huge threat to billions of dollars of profits for mainstream medicine.
Until the next time, I remain your friendly, intrepid reporter spreading the truth as best I can about colloidal silver and other natural alternatives to mainstream medicine.

Important Addendum: Where to Find Colloidal Silver
If you’re brand new to colloidal silver usage and are wondering where to buy it, it’s important to know that you can find it in just about any well-stocked health food store in America. It’s also available on Amazon and numerous other websites.
But it can be extremely expensive. In fact, because colloidal silver works so well against numerous forms of infection and disease, it has the highest price mark-up of any nutritional supplement in existence.
The amount of actual silver in a four-ounce bottle of colloidal silver is about five to 12 cents worth. (Yes, I said five to twelve cents.)
Yet because that small amount of silver is all it takes to decimate so many different kinds of infections, the manufacturers mark it up about 16,000%, charging a whopping $20 or $30 per bottle.
What’s more, manufacturers promoting the latest faddish colloidal silver product often charge far more per bottle – sometimes $35 to $50 for a tiny four-ounce bottle.
And people are more than willing to pay through the nose for these commercial colloidal silver products at health food stores because colloidal silver does indeed heal infections and prevent the spread of germs and disease faster and better than any other natural supplement on the planet!
So, commercially speaking, the retail price of colloidal silver at health food stores reflects its value to the consumer far more so than its true cost to produce. But here’s the good news:
Make Your Own High-Quality
Colloidal Silver for Pennies!
As I mentioned, typical health food store prices for colloidal silver can range from $20 to $30 for a tiny, four-ounce bottle.
But with a brand new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge, you can make your own safe, pure, high-quality micro-particle colloidal silver for about 36 cents a quart! In other words, you can make it at actual cost, just like the big colloidal silver bottlers do.
Compared to typical health food store prices, your first two one-quart batches literally pay for the entire cost of your new generator! Do you know of any other health product that literally pays for itself the very first few times you use it? The savings are absolutely astonishing!
In fact, by making your own high-quality colloidal silver with a brand new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge, you’ll be as close to having FREE colloidal silver as you can get, and for the rest of your life!
You’ll never have to pay those exorbitant health food store prices again!
The new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator is now the world’s #1 best-selling colloidal silver generator. Here are just a few reasons why you should own one…
- It pays for itself after your very first batch or two — your total cost to make your first one-quart batch is about 36 cents, compared to the $240 you’d pay at a health food store if you bought an equivalent amount (i.e., eight of those little 4-ounce bottles they normally sell for $30 apiece)!
- Safe, simple to operate…No special skills needed…You just set the handy timer, plug it in, walk away, and three hours later you have a perfect batch of therapeutic quality micro-particle colloidal silver…every time! Here’s a short pictorial demonstrating how astonishingly easy it is to use a new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge:
- Produces uncommonly small silver micro-particles as low as .8 nm. That’s a fraction of a single nanometer. Compare that to health food store colloidal silver which can contain silver particles as large as 200 nm to 1,000 nm (or even larger), and you’ll see why micro-particle colloidal silver is the very best there is! Smaller particles mean your body can absorb and utilize up to 99% of the colloidal silver you take, compared to maybe 30% or 40% with many health food store brands!
- Runs on standard household electricity, but uses less power than a tiny Christmas tree bulb – you won’t even see a blip on your electric bill!
- Produces uniform, crystal clear batches every single time that store for months, or even years, without losing potency!
- Cannot produce silver chloride or unsafe substances – you get pure, therapeutic-quality micro-particle colloidal silver every time!
Just read through some of the testimonials below to see for yourself how you’ll save literally thousands of dollars per year by making your own colloidal silver with your brand new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge!
Here’s what one customer recently wrote to tell us:
“Owning a Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge has given us the luxury of being able to use high-quality colloidal silver any time we need it. And we never have to worry about the costs because it only costs a few pennies per quart to make! It is without a doubt the single-best money-saving appliance in my entire house!
Best of all, the machine is very easy to use, and easy to store. I was concerned about ease-of-use, but my fears were unfounded. After I got mine and used it, I immediately bought one and sent it to my 83 year old mom, and she uses it regularly as well.
Now that I have a Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator, I can use colloidal silver for everything — disinfecting the kitchen sinks, countertops, and the cutting board… spraying the toilet bowls, and the bathroom countertops and sinks… spraying it on my toothbrush to prevent bacterial growth…rinsing my mouth with it to prevent cavities and gum disease…you name it.
I even put it in the laundry rinse cycle when I do my linens, towels and kitchen rags, so I don’t have to wash them as frequently. It really keeps them fresh, and there’s never any mold or mildew anywhere in our house.
I also put some in the cat’s water bowl each day, and the dog’s too. We use it in the bathtub for skin problems. And of course we drink it when our tummies are queasy, or when we feel a cold or flu coming on. We also gargle with it in order to get rid of sore throats, and sniff it up our noses to get rid of sinus problems.
My husband even sprays it on his hair in the mornings, and has completely eliminated his lifelong dandruff problem. And he sprays a little bit in his eyes from time to time, and now has no more recurrent problems with sties.”
— K. Sullivan, NM
And here’s what another happy customer wrote to say about the tremendous savings she’s achieved by no longer having to purchase her colloidal silver through health food stores:
“We make a quart of colloidal silver at least once a week with the Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from the Silver Edge. I finally sat down and figured out how much this machine has been saving us. By making our own colloidal silver we’ve saved $11,503.20 this year alone, compared to the cost of colloidal silver at our local health food store.
The cost for colloidal silver at our local health food store is $30 for a tiny four-ounce bottle. But with my Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator, I can make eight times that amount (i.e., a full quart) for about 35 cents total cost.
If I were to purchase a quart of colloidal silver at the health food store, which would be eight of those tiny, four-ounce bottles, the cost would be a whopping $240 (i.e., 8 x $30 = $240) compared to the 35 cents I now spend to make a full quart!
Here’s the breakdown of our costs to make a full quart of colloidal silver with our Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator: It costs us about a dollar for a gallon of steam-distilled water at Walmart. So a quart of the steam-distilled water costs about 25 cents. And I estimate we use maybe a nickel’s worth of electricity and maybe another nickel’s worth of silver from the silver rods for every one-quart batch of colloidal silver we make. So that’s 35 cents a quart, all told, for each quart of micro-particle colloidal silver we make!
And frankly, considering how long the .999 fine silver rods have lasted (over a year and a half, so far, for the most recent set), I think it’s probably even cheaper than that. But it’s the lifetime savings we’ve experienced that’s just mind-boggling to me.
For example, we’ve had our Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver unit for nearly five years now. And as I mentioned we make one quart per week, and we spend about 35 cents a week on making colloidal silver.
This means we save about $239.65 a week by not having to purchase a quart’s worth of colloidal silver at our local health food store. So do the math: In just one month, the savings is $958.60…in one year, the savings is $11,503.20…and in five years we’ve saved approximately $57,516.00!
When you put pencil to paper and figure it out, it definitely takes you by surprise. You just think ‘No way. I must have multiplied that wrong.’
But it’s true. The savings is legitimately well over $11,000 a year over health food store prices for colloidal silver, if you make and use a quart of colloidal silver a week like we do! And we reap that incredible savings from the very reasonable $250 investment we made in purchasing our Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator.
In their advertising literature, The Silver Edge says the unit completely pays for itself after your first couple of one-quart batches. But really, that’s quite an understatement when you realize the true extent of your savings!
Of course, once you start making your own colloidal silver with a Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge, you don’t really think about how much you’re saving compared to health food store prices, because it just becomes a normal part of your everyday life. But the savings is nevertheless astonishing when you reflect on it.
What’s especially nice is being able to produce a significantly higher-quality colloidal silver than what’s generally available to the public through health food stores, especially at such a tiny, tiny fraction of the cost.”
— Marie Wilkey, SC
