What is Colloidal Silver?

Ionic Colloidal Silver is very fine particles of 99.9% pure ionic silver suspended in purified water. It supports the immune system when the body is under attack and micro organisms cannot build up resistance to it.

Quite simply, silver interrupts the bacteria cell’s ability to form the chemical bonds essential to its survival.

It is often used as a natural alternative to antibiotics, as it has antimicrobial properties, which means it’s antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral. Colloidal silver has proven effective in killing many stubborn bacterial infections (including cold viruses) without the side effects of a pharmaceutical antibiotic.

Your immune system’s best friend

Colloidal Silver is suitable for the entire family, including pets, and there are no known interactions or side effects if taken as directed. Silver is a naturally occurring trace mineral found in our bodies and does not interact with any medication. It has been proven to promote the growth of new cells, enabling wounds to heal faster. Unlike other metals with antimicrobial properties, it is non-toxic.

Antimicrobial properties

Ionic Colloidal Silver supports the immune system when the body is under attack. Silver has antimicrobial properties that work by disabling the specific enzyme that many forms of bacteria, viruses and fungi use for their own oxygen metabolism.

This will assist your body’s natural defences against bacterial or viral infections such as colds or flu.

Always use a plastic spoon as metal affects the positive charge of the silver ions. Do not store in a refrigerator, near a magnetic field or an electronic device.

Applying Colloidal Silver to your skin

Colloidal Silver can be applied topically to help prevent infection or fight an existing condition. It is suitable for use on broken skin and can be used as an antibacterial application for wounds, cuts, grazes, insect bites, minor burns and fungal infections. As it’s non-stinging, it’s great for use on kids to prevent infection on any cuts or wounds and aids fast healing.

Spray onto the affected area, allow to dry, then apply Skybright Colloidal Silver Cream, which has the additional antimicrobial benefits of mānuka oil and mānuka honey. Or apply Skybright Colloidal Silver Aloe Vera Gel, which is regenerative, soothing, cooling and calming for the skin and particularly effective on minor burns and sunburn.
