Colloidal Silver

$12.00 NZD

Colloidal silver is widely recognised for it's ability to support the body's natural defence and immune system; with anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and anti-viral qualities.

It is typically ingested or applied topically to fight infections and reduce inflammation.

This is a superior quality true colloidal silver with approximately 10ppm, which is vegan, pregnancy and breastfeeding friendly, and free from palm oil, chemicals stabilisers and additives.

True colloidal silver is widely used for the following -

  • an alternative to anti-biotics - it's gentler on the microbiome and gut health than medicinal anti-biotics, with the added advantage that bacteria can not become resistant to it.
  • keeping colds, flu and viruses (such as herpes, shingles, HIV and coronavirus) at bay
  • wound and burn care
  • skin health (especially eczema, acne, rosacea and psoriasis)
  • pneumonia and bronchitis
  • sinusitis
  • pink eye and ear infections

Colloidal silver is a water based solution that contains nanometre sized particles of suspended silver. The total silver content is expressed as milligrams of silver per litre of water - or mg/L, which is numerically the same as parts per million (ppm).

Pure water, silver and energised H20.

According to a report written by Richard Davies and Samuel Etris of The Silver Institute in a 1996, there are 3 primary ways that colloidal silver may help heal the body:

  1. Catalytic Oxidation: Silver naturally binds onto oxygen molecules, which readily react with the sulfhydral (H) groups that surround bacterial and viruses. This helps block the cellular process known as "cellular respiration" which takes place within the cells of organisms to convert biochemical energy from nutrients into adenosine triphosphate (ATP), and then release waste products.
  2. Reaction with Bacterial Cell Membranes: Silver ions can attach to bacteria cell membranes directly, and produce the same respiration-blocking effect.
  3. Binding with DNA: It's not entirely clear how silver binds to the DNA of bacteria without destroying the hydrogen bonds holding the lattice together, but it prevents the DNA from unwinding, which is an essential step for cellular replication to occur.”

There 3 different types of products that are marketed as colloidal silver.

  1. Ionic silver - most common, least expensive form of colloidal silver - but won't produce the same benefits as true colloidal silver
  2. Silver protein - second most common form which uses gelatin to suspend the silver particles in the water. Won't produce the same benefits as true colloidal silver.
  3. True colloidal silvertrue silver colloids consists of nanometre-sized silver particles that doesn't include the use of any additives. This is considered to be the most effective type of colloidal silver.

Most applications use very small quantities of silver so when used as recommended colloidal silver is considered to be safe.

But, not all colloidal silvers are equal. Choosing inexpensive, low quality colloidal silvers that are not true colloidal silver may result in the product being ineffective, and may produce adverse side effects.

As an example - you may have come across warnings about colloidal silver causing an irreversible condition called argyria, which is when people turn blue.

Only true colloidal silver should be used and studies indicate that short-term use does not cause adverse side effects. 

One point to consider is that, because colloidal silver is such a potent antibacterial agent, you should be sure to supplement with probiotics during use to be sure that you maintain a proper balance of microflora.

All our colloidal silver products come with directions for use, but please see below for general guidelines.

To experience colloidal silver benefits, it may be used in any of the following ways:

  • Take 1 teaspoon under the tongue three times daily
  • 2–5 drops (or colloidal silver gel) applied directly to the skin
  • 1 eyedropper taken orally for immune support
  • 1–2 drops into eyes for pink eye
  • 1–2 drops (or colloidal silver gel) can help disinfect any wound or sore by applying onto a Band-Aid/bandage.
  • If prepared properly, it can be injected into a muscle, a cancerous tumor, or into the bloodstream, but under the care of a doctor or trained professional
  • 5–10 drops can be applied vaginally or anally (for thrush)
  • 5 drops added into a diffuser or directly sprayed into the nose
  • spray on infections (eg throat), wounds or bandages

Store in a cool dark place.

  • Always read the label
  • Use only as directed
  • If symptoms persist see your health professional
  • Prolonged or excessive use of Colloidal Silver is not recommended as it may accumulate in your body over time, and may lead to a condition known as argyria (this is more common with colloidal silver that is not "true colloidal silver"). Use with caution with infants and children.
