Facts About Colloidal Silver


Colloidal silver is Nature's antibiotic. Silver has been reported as a water purifier, healing wounds and burns, and preventing infection from ancient times.   In modern times colloidal silver is reported to have an antimicrobial effect against more than 650 different organisms, including bacteria, viruses, algae, fungi, protozoans and yeasts.  It is recently reported to be effective in fighting MRSA the "flesh eating disease" caused by one of the new antibiotic-resistant "superbugs" as well as hemorrhagic fevers, such as Ebola, and another widespread viruses like the HPV's and HEP C (hepatitis C virus).

The U.S. FDA has approved over 130 products that incorporate silver for its antimicrobial effect.

Colloidal silver, specifically, electro-chemically produced colloidal silver, is composed of sub-microscopic multi-atom nano-particles of silver having numerous electrical charges, suspended in distilled water, which greatly enhances its antimicrobial properties.

Unlike modern antibiotics and anti-viral medications, microorganisms do not create resistance to silver or colloidal silver.

Colloidal silver has been reported to accelerate healing of the body, especially burns, infections and soft tissue damage (muscle and cartilage).


Colloidal silver has no known toxic effects on the human body. The only known side effect is a cosmetic condition called Argyria, where the skin takes on a blue-gray color. This was shown to be due to ingesting large amounts of colloidal silver tonics over an extended period, such that silver chloride produced in the stomach from stomach acid (hydrochloric acid) is retained in the skin where it reacts with light (silver chloride is a chemical found in photographic emulsions). 

Argyria (blue-gray skin) is absolutely preventable by ingesting colloidal silver on an empty stomach.

Another indication of the safety of silver is the fact that in 48 states in the US it was mandated by law to put a few drops of 1% silver nitrate solution into newborn infant’s eyes to prevent blindness due to the possible presence of gonorrhea bacteria. A 1% solution is 10,000 parts per million!

Colloidal silver is not addictive, nor does the body build a “tolerance” to it, so overuse is avoided. No adverse reaction has been reported when using colloidal silver with other medications, but it is prudent to take colloidal silver and medications at separate times.

  • COST

Unlike modern medications, colloidal silver is very inexpensive to produce. The two 6-inch 14 gauge silver wire electrodes included with a LifeForce Devices colloidal silver generator can make about 75 gallons of 15 ppm colloidal silver. Generating 32 oz. per day, it would take about a year to consume the two electrodes.


Colloidal silver is best as a preventive measure, as daily consumption maintains the amount of silver in the body at a level where it is available to add to the body’s natural immune response and healing mechanisms. However, testimonials indicate that a quantity of 4 times the nutritional amount can be taken for extended periods and higher concentrations can be used topically.
