Colloidal silver, three basic types :
Colloidal silver Low voltage: produced with a glass of distilled water, two solid silver leads and from one or more 9 volt batteries, (usually 32 volts) that produces large silver molecules suspended in the glass of water. This homemade colloidal silver generator is popular with colloidal silver new comers. The silver particles are very large and the suspension is ion rich, thus called, an ionic silver. Large particles of silver are very difficult for the body to absorb. The color is almost clear. The reason is the concentration of suspended silver particles rarely exceed 5 PPM. Using a spectrograph one will determine a dim yellow color even though to the naked eye the water looks clear and colorless***. A word of caution for all who use the home version colloidal silver generator, ALWAYS USE distilled water. NEVER add any agent that will speed up electrolysis as this creates a molecule that can be harmful to your health.
Colorless Colloidal Silver***
The color in colloidal silver is produced by light reflecting off of the silver particles in suspension. If you have few particles per million of silver you will see little to no color. As the concentration of silver increases the spectrograph will measure from light yellow to orange then dark amber/brown as concentrations reach 1100 PPM. To make a remark that any colloidal silver is colorless is scientifically incorrect. The Tyndall Effect reveals the reason for color in colloidal silver. Hard solid metal silver that is broken down to a nano- sized (one billionth of a meter) particle is still metal is suspension. When the light strikes the silver particle, the light is scattered, and you see color, in the case of silver light yellow to dark amber as you increase the amount of silver in solution. In the case of colloidal gold, when the light reflects off gold particles the color is light lavender to a ruby red color.
There are some larger Colloidal Silver concentrations of PPM of silver that are clear. If you find ANY colloidal silver over 20 PPM that is clear, BE AWARE that these are VERY large molecules of Colloidal silver and usually are ionic colloidal silver.
Colloidal silver High Voltage: Some Commercial manufacturers use very high voltage electricity to produce low ionic colloidal silver, then “centrifuge the solution to remove most remaining loose ions”, thus calling their solution non-ionic colloidal silver. This method of making colloidal silver has its own genre of followers and results show that this colloidal silver has as good of results as mild silver protein colloidal silver. This method produces a solution that can rarely be over 20 PPM and silver will fall out of solution rendering the solution useless in certain climatic conditions such as cold and age since processing. The idea that all ions are removed making the solution ion free is certainly dubious at best.
Colloidal Silver Mild Protein: The rest of the commercial manufacturers use a mild protein to stabilize very small silver particles in a solution of distilled water.
This is the largest manufacturing process that has been used to manufacture colloidal silver for over 105 years and found in national chain health food stores. The colloidal silver 1100 PPM has remained the standard most used PPM strength for over a century. The largest benefit to mild protein colloidal silver is that the user can consume a greater amount of colloidal silver PPM to combat any issue they want to address safely.
The scientific definition of “colloidal silver”, is a metal suspended in solution. All known processes of colloidal silver meet this criteria of the definition.
Any definition of “true colloidal silver” other than the definitions above are unscientific definitions dreamed up by a retailer to confuse the consumer.
ANY retailer (regardless of any claimed credentials) that would suggest that one of the above colloidal silvers should not be used because their product is better,… are only interested in their bottom line not in the questioner’s health or accurate information.
The bottom line is you want a quality colloidal silver of your choice to have very small particles of silver that can be absorbed into the bloodstream. The next issue to address is what concentration of colloidal silver should you consider. If 30 PPM of colloidal silver was used in a very small Petri dish to destroy bacteria and virus in laboratory trials, then what PPM of colloidal silver should you consider when diluting your choice of colloidal silver with 5 liters of blood?
We sell all of the above colloidal silver processes of colloidal silver except the homemade low voltage colloidal silver with a SATIFACTION GAURANTEE.
