Silver is an effective anti-microbial that can kill disease-causing bacteria and help prevent infections. It can also help heal wounds, treat burns, and soothe conditions like thrush in the mouth.
There are a few things you should know before using colloidal silver powder: It is not a cure-all and can cause side effects, including argyria (bluish-gray skin and mucous membranes) when taken in excess. It also can interfere with the absorption of certain drugs, including antibiotics and thyroid deficiency medication.
It is best to take it in the form of a dietary supplement, not in water or directly by mouth. You can buy a dietary supplement at your local health food store or on the internet.
Unlike ionic silver solutions, which are insoluble and often harmful when used externally, colloidal silver is stable and does not lose its effectiveness when in contact with water or free silver ions in the body. It can be found in a wide variety of products including soaps, toothpastes, and cleaning supplies.
The best colloidal silver powder is made in a specialized GMP-compliant lab by a process that yields extremely small nano-sized silver colloids. These are much more effective than ionic silver solutions which contain large particles that must be treated with potentially dangerous proteins to keep them from agglomerating and precipitating.
