Experiences with colloidal silver
As colloidal silver has a wide range of positive effects, I would like to introduce you some of the most fascinating and important ones – based on my personal experience and based on scientific studies. Convince yourself!
Colloidal silver fights acne
In my youth and young adult stages I was suffering from acne including reddening, swelling and itching – for about 10 years. I tried all sorts of common and alternative healing methods, but nothing helped. So I tried colloidal silver and I just want to share my personal experiences with colloidal silver with other acne sufferers. Colloidal silver really has shown such a positive effect on my skin and helped me getting rid of my acne and bad skin in general. Of course, sometimes I still have some small pits – I’m just not blessed with a beautiful skin like others – but it gets so much better with using colloidal silver. I know it’s a long road full of setbacks and bad experiences to having a clear skin, but I would like you to just give it a try. My acne, large spots with thick heads and reddening are gone.
Colloidal silver to clean and treat wounds
I already told you: I’m not blessed with a nice skin. Before using colloidal silver, I really had a slow sore-cure. It felt like my wounds needed an abnormally long time to recover from scratches, abrasions and injuries in general. Colloidal silver is doing a great job and healed all my wounds well. You can even use it to clean wounds and to prevent infections. The colloidal silver spray bottle makes it easy, safe und hygienic to use. You can simply apply it on wounds without touching them.
Colloidal silver in the treatment of infections
You can use colloidal silver to treat many types of infections such as skin infections, ear infections, oral infections as well as eye infections. Using colloidal silver as an emergency kit had led me to great experience – I would consider colloidal silver a safe way to clear all sorts of minor infections, from sore throats to tooth aches. One of the best things is that it can be used for humans and animals like dogs or cats. Colloidal silver is a true all-rounder and a must in my everyday lifestyle. Use colloidal silver in the evening and by morning you will be fine – it’s an unbelievable experience.
Colloidal silver is boosting your immune system
I have only good experience with colloidal silver and its oral use. I’ve never been ill very often, but I would say that colloidal silver is even boosting my immune system. I just feel stronger and more resilient. It feels like my immune system is always stabilized. I’m using colloidal silver during cold and flu seasons. A spoonful of silver a day keeps the doctor away – it works for me, I guess.
Colloidal silver on human breast cancer
Colloidal silver has been used as an antimicrobial and disinfectant agent. However, there is scarce
information on its antitumor potential.
Colloidal silver has been used as an antimicrobial and disinfectant agent. However, there is scarce information on its antitumor potential. The aim of a Mexican study was to determine if colloidal silver is capable of fighting breast cancer, more specifically if it has cytotoxic effects on human breast cancer cells and its mechanism of cell death.
Those cells were treated with colloidal silver. Cell Viability was evaluated by trypan blue exclusion method and the mechanism of cell death using an ELISA kit and TUNEL assay. The production of NO, LDH, and Gpx, SOD, CAT, and Total antioxidant activities were evaluated by colorimetric assays.
The stunning thing is that colloidal silver indeed has an effect on cancer cells – it had a dose-dependent effect through induction of apoptosis. The best thing, however, is that peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) which play an important role for the immune system were not altered by colloidal silver.
Their findings showed that colloidal silver might be a potential alternative agent for human breast cancer therapy.
Colloidal silver can enhance antibiotic activity
Silver has been used as an antimicrobial since antiquity, yet its mechanism of action remains unclear. A US study revealed that silver disrupts multiple bacterial cellular processes leading to increased production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and increased membrane permeability of some Gram-negative bacteria. This phenomenon can boost the activity of a broad range of antibiotics against those bacteria as well as restore antibiotic susceptibility to a resistant bacteria strain.
They showed both in vitro and in vivo that the ability of silver to induce oxidative stress can be harnessed to even potentiate antibiotic activity – for example, in a urinary tract infection. Finally, the authors of the study used silver and antibiotic combinations to eradicate bacterial persisters and showed both in vitro and in vivo, that silver can enhance antibacterial action against biofilms. Their work shows that silver can be used to enhance the action of existing antibiotics against Gram-negative bacteria thus strengthening the antibiotic arsenal for fighting bacterial infections.
Safety of colloidal silver
A great deal of misinformation has been released from the media claiming that nano-silver products have not been tested for safety, and that it is unknown which effects the products may have on people or the environment. American Biotech Labs has spent millions of dollars on testing the safety and efficacy of nano-silver technology products.
A number of independent cyto-toxicity tests have been completed on American Biotech Labs’ nano-silver products. At both 10 and 22 ppm, the products were found to do no damage at all to either human or monkey cells. They were found completely non-cyto-toxic. Nano-silver gel products were tested at both 24 and 32 ppm by an independent FDA/EPA approved lab. According to FDA guidelines, the cyto-toxicity is reported on a scale of 1-4, where 4 would mean highly cyto-toxic and 1 being very safe for use. Both the 24 and 32ppm ASAP nano-silver products were deemed in the testing to be a level 1, in other words having little or no negative effect on the skin.
In 1991 the EPA issued an oral intake limit for daily use on silver to be 0.005 mg/kg/day. That means that according to the EPA guidelines for silver ingestion, an average size adult could safely consume the equivalent of one ounce daily of a 10 ppm silver product and not exceed the EPA established daily intake limit. On page two of the EPA RED document it states:
“EPA does not anticipate that dietary exposure to these low levels of silver will be associated with any significant degree of risk.“
