While at UCLA Medical School in the 1980s, Larry C. Ford, MD, documented over 650 different disease-causing pathogens that were destroyed in minutes when exposed to small amounts of silver.
That discovery started the ball rolling on the possible benefits of silver. And today colloidal silver continues to help combat illnesses and strengthen the immune system.
Continuing reading to learn more about colloidal silver and how it might be able to support your immune health.
What Is Colloidal Silver?
Colloidal silver is a solution of water containing nanometre sized particles of suspended silver. The total silver content is divided into two forms of silver: ionic silver and silver particles.
There are three types of products that are marketed as colloidal silver:
- Ionic silver
Ionic silver solutions are products whose silver content primarily consists of silver ions. Even though ionic silver is often marketed as colloidal silver, it’s not true colloidal silver.
- Silver protein
In order to keep large silver particles suspended, silver protein-based products add gelatin. Silver protein can easily be made by adding water to silver protein powder.
- True colloidal silver
True silver colloids don’t contain any protein or other additives, as the majority of the silver content consists of nanometre-sized silver particles.
Below are 7 colloidal silver benefits:
1. Antibacterial and antimicrobial
First, colloidal silver’s ability to control antibiotic-resistant superbugs is amazing! Colloidal silver, unlike modern prescription antibiotics, doesn’t create resistance or immunity in the organisms that are killed by it. This is especially impressive considering that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently reported that more than 2 million people in the U.S. suffer illness every year as a result of antibiotic-resistant infections with 23,000 dying from these infections.
2. Skin care
Collodial silver is a potent anti-fungal and benefits many skins conditions including psoriasis and eczema. It’s soothing to scrapes and repairs tissue damage from burns. The combination of silver nitrate and sodium sulfadiazine in a cream aids in severe burn recovery.
3. Pink eye
Pink eye is due to an inflamed mucous membrane and is caused by either a bacterial or viral infection. Colloidal silver can be used to treat both this highly infectious virus and bacteria.
4. Ear infections
Ear infections may be caused by multiple classes of bacteria or can be fungal.
If it is fungal, a prescription antibiotic will be useless. Colloidal silver is effective regardless of what may be causing your infection.
Colloidal silver can help regardless of the pathogen by suffocating the virus. It is a potent anti-viral for herpes, hepatitis C, shingles and warts. When pneumonia is viral, antibiotics won’t help at all. Colloidal silver fights against both pneumonia and bronchitis when ingested internally. An even more effective way to use it is to simply breathe it into your lungs via a nebulizer.
Colloidal silver is also a powerful anti-inflammatory remedy. Research shows that colloidal silver reduces swelling, speeds healing, and also boosts cell recovery.
7. Sinus infections
To control sinus infections, colloidal silver kills Staph aureus and benefits sufferers as a nasal spray or in a neti pot. Colloidal silver also destroys Pseudomonas aeruginosa infections, which relieves airborne allergies.
In 2011, the NIH took 100 children under the age of 12 suffering from the common cold and nasal congestion and assigned them into two groups; the first group was treated with a solution of colloidal silver and beta glucan, and the second group with saline solution. Even though both groups benefited from the treatment, 90% of the people in the colloidal silver group completely recovered.
Note: be aware that colloidal silver needs to be applied differently for each condition. To experience optimal colloidal silver benefits, follow the specific instructions and never use it for more than 14 days in a row.
