Why Using Metallic Silver (Instead of Ionic Silver) Slows Healing to a Crawl
Once again, a clinical study proves that metallic silver – the crap often erroneously called “true colloidal silver” – does NOT kill pathogens on its own. See the study here:
- The Antimicrobial Properties of Silver Nanoparticles in Bacillus subtilis are Mediated by Released Ag+ Ions
The study proves once again it’s the silver ions being shed by the metallic silver particles that actually kill the pathogens. The metallic silver particles do nothing.
Researchers at Rice University proved the same thing several years ago: They even titled their study, “Ions, Not Particles, Make Silver Toxic to Bacteria,” meaning it’s the silver ions that kill pathogens and not metallic silver particles.
This again puts the lie to the idiotic idea that after you make a batch of ionic silver (i.e., electrically generated colloidal silver), you must then heat the water and add special chemicals to it in order to convert the ionic silver into “true colloidal silver,” which is nothing more than metallic silver.
Why on God’s green earth would you do such a thing?
After all, the human body then has to convert the metallic silver BACK into ionic silver in order for it to kill pathogens inside the body. And guess what that does?
It Slows the Healing Process!
You see, when you drink metallic silver (i.e., so-called “true colloidal silver”) only a tiny fraction of the metallic silver – less than 10% – ever gets converted back to ionic silver inside the body.
The rest goes “in one end, and out the other” as the old saying goes. It’s like eating dirt. It’s worthless, in terms of healing.
There’s only one reason why metallic silver (aka “true colloidal silver”) works against infections at all, and that’s because after you ingest it, some of the metal silver particles will, upon exposure to acidic bodily fluids inside your body, begin shedding small numbers of silver ions.
So metallic silver does indeed work, thanks to the fact that the body can gradually convert some of the silver metal particles into germ-killing silver ions.
But…it works very, very slowly, because the silver particles must first come into contact with acidic bodily fluids and slowly begin to shed silver ions inside the body.
It’s the silver ions that kill the pathogens, as virtually every independent clinical researcher in the world agrees. So why convert your superior ionic silver into inferior metallic silver? It’s just plain dumb.
Another Problem: High Silver Loads
But there’s another problem: You have to ingest relatively high amounts of metallic silver into your body so it can throw off enough silver ions to kill pathogens effectively.
After all, only about 10% of the metallic silver you ingest will ever be converted to the superior, ionic form.
That’s why the bottled “true colloidal silver” products found in health food stores are so highly concentrated, often coming in concentrations of 100 ppm, 200 ppm, 500 ppm or even more.
You see, you have to drink extremely high concentrations of metallic silver for enough silver ions to be shed inside the body to kill pathogens.
But when using pure ionic silver, all you need to ingest is a concentration of 5 or 10 ppm. And the healing is astonishing, as the nearly 1,000 testimonials at the following page (see here) demonstrate.
That’s because ionic silver is the active, infection-fighting form of colloidal silver. With the ionic form of colloidal silver, you don’t need to drink 100, 200, or even 500 ppm. Because ionic silver is already in the active form that actually kills the microbes, you only need 5-10 ppm.
But to get 5 or 10 ppm ionic silver out of metallic silver, you have to drink those excessively high concentrations.
In other words, it takes huge concentrations between 100 ppm to 500 ppm of metallic silver to get 5-10 ppm of ionic silver into your body, as your body has to convert some of the metal silver particles into ions before being excreted.
So why drink such heavy loads of metallic silver (100 ppm, 200 ppm, 500 ppm) when a mere 5-10 ppm of the ionic form works even faster and better against pathogens?
Again, it’s just plain silly to put such a heavy load of metallic silver on your liver and kidneys, under the misconception that it’s doing you good.
Another Clinical Study Proves the Point
Here another clinical study proving my point:
And for a more in-depth explanation exposing the “true colloidal silver” (i.e., metallic silver) lie, complete with clinical study references, quotes from independent experts and other irrefutable documentation, see:
(If you want an in-depth education into why the claims about the supposed superiority of “true colloidal silver” are all lies, that’s the web page you’ll want to read.)
The Experts Agree
Folks, every independent medical and clinical expert in the world agrees it’s the silver ion that kills pathogens, and not metallic silver.
These are experts who have no axes to grind. They don’t sell any brand of colloidal silver, or have anything to do at all with the colloidal silver community.
Read these quotes from top medical and clinical experts who have no axe to grind in this matter:
So why would you ever drink anything but the ionic form of colloidal silver?
Once more, the ionic form of colloidal silver is the active, infection-fighting form. Metallic silver, on the other hand, has repeatedly been proven to have no infection-fighting qualities whatsoever, except to the extent that it might shed some silver ions inside the human body after it’s ingested.
“True Colloidal Silver” Nonsense
It’s astonishing to me that people are still falling for this “true colloidal silver” nonsense.
One colloidal silver manufacturing company started the whole fad, about 15 years ago, as a means of trying to distinguish their brand of colloidal silver from all of the other brands, most of which were ionic.
And as my clinical research friends like to say, that company has enjoyed a 15-year “Reign of Error,” duping colloidal silver users into believing the “true colloidal silver” lie just so they could make money.
So the next time someone tries to tell you that metallic silver works better than ionic silver, let that stand as a warning to you about how silly fads like “true colloidal silver” can overtake people, leading them down rabbit holes they never seem to be able to find their ways out of again, even in the face of mountains of evidence to the contrary.
If a person’s foundational knowledge on a topic is incorrect, then virtually everything else they believe on that topic is incorrect, too. That’s because, when the foundation is off, everything built on that foundation is off.
But if you start with the medically and clinically proven fact that silver ions are what kill pathogens, and not metallic silver, then you can hardly go wrong.
Look, ionic silver has been the best-selling form of colloidal silver for nearly 100 years – ever since Edison invented electricity and researchers discovered that suspending some silver rods in water and running electricity through them allowed electrically-charged silver ions to be suspended in the water.
And why has ionic silver been the best-selling form of colloidal silver for so long. Because it works best. That’s why.
Again, the silver ion is the active, infection-fighting “specie” of silver. It’s an irrefutable fact. Anything other than ionic silver is inferior. So why use anything else?
When you make your own colloidal silver with a high-quality colloidal silver generator, you get billions upon billions of pure silver ions – the active, infection-fighting form of colloidal silver.
So the only question you need to be asking yourself at this point is, where can I find a good, high-quality colloidal silver generator?
Make Your Own High-Quality
Ionic Colloidal Silver… for Just Pennies!
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 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, with nothing added and nothing to limit its effectiveness!
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. 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
The Bottom Line…
With a high-quality Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge, you’ll never again have to pay exorbitant health food store or internet vendor prices for high-quality colloidal silver!
Indeed, your first batch or two will indeed completely pay for the entire cost of your generator, compared to health food store prices!
What’s more, you’ll be able to give colloidal silver away FREE to family members, friends and neighbors, because you’ll be making it – literally – for only a few pennies per batch!
