According to the Oxford Dictionary, the word Colloidal means “a substance consisting of sub-microscopic particles of one substance dispersed in another”. So, basically, Colloidal Silver is very tiny particles of silver suspended in water.
The cleansing qualities of traces of silver ions have been known for centuries.
- The Romans used silver jars to store liquids, contamination free.
- American settlers traveling west used silver coins in their milk pots, to delay spoilage.
- In the 1900’s silver foil was used extensively in wound dressings.
- The space shuttle uses silver, to disinfect its water supply.
- A company in Japan manufactures socks with silver threads in the toes, to help prevent infection, and an American company has made a new fabric impregnated with silver particles, to help people with skin conditions.
- Silver is also now used in appliances e.g. air conditioners in the Middle East use silver, to prevent the growth of air-borne bacteria; water treatment units using silver are available to sterilize water; a washing machine has been invented that injects silver ions into the tub, to sanitize the clothes; and even mobile phones are now available with a silver case, to help prevent bacteria.
"Effectiveness" The highest quality colloidal silver will contain the greatest number of small particles from the smallest total amount or weight of silver.
Particle size and number determines the quality and effectiveness of colloidal silver not the parts per million, (pmm). The term ppm is confusing because it does not refer to the number of particles in the solution, it is actually a measure of the total weight or amount of silver.
For example, a solution with a concentration of 6ppm with an average particle size of 1 nanometer will have far more silver particles than another solution of 10ppm with an average particle size of 5 nanometer and therefore will be far more effective and safer.
Skybrights Premium Ionic Colloidal Silver is manufactured in a computer controlled electro-colloidal generator using natural artesian water triple filtered to better than Laboratory Grade with very fine 99.99% pure silver particles less than 1 nanometer in size and at 6ppm is at the maximum strength necessary to support the bodies immune system and natural healing ability therefore there is no reason or need to manufacture it to a higher ppm.
"Colloidal" means very fine particles suspended in a liquid.
"Ionic" means it has a positive charge. When body cells become infected with a bacteria they become negatively charged, positive Colloidal Silver is then attracted to these negative cells and goes right to the source of the infection.
Silver has antibacterial properties that work by disabling the specific enzyme that many forms of bacteria, viruses and fungi utilize for their own oxygen metabolism.
Skybright Premium Colloidal Silver is non toxic and suitable for all the family including children and pregnant women. It can be used internally or topically, and has no known adverse side effects if taken as prescribed.
It is best taken by itself and held in the mouth for 30 seconds before swallowing. The mouth contains many blood vessels close to the surface (especially under the tongue) and this helps fast absorption of the tiny silver particles.
Dosage: 5ml three times a day for the first 5 days (or longer if the condition is severe) then 5ml once a day for maintenance, for children under 8 use a half dose.
Skybright Premium Colloidal Silver can be used topically to aid the healing of the skin. The best method is to spray on the skin and keep damp for 15 minutes, let the skin dry and then apply a Skybright Colloidal Silver or Herbal Cream. Repeat twice daily.
