Colloidal Silver


Colloidal silver is not a mineral supplement as such, but is used to control various pathogens in the body. It is claimed to be effective against a huge range of pathogenic organisms including bacteria, fungi and protozoons.

Colloidal silver is a suspension of microscopic silver particles in water which was widely used to treat infection before the advent of antibiotics. It’s anti-pathogenic action results from the fact that silver poisons an enzyme which is involved oxygen metabolism in the micro-organisms concerned. As mammals do not use the enzyme in their cells it is safe for human use.

Colloidal silver is classified as a pre-1938 drug by the FDA, and so is available without prescription. Many companies now offer colloidal silver as an alternative to antibiotics, as it can be effective against microbes that have become resistant to the commonly-used antibiotics and anti-fungals. Because of its mode of action, it is unlikely that resistance to colloidal silver will arise, although this is always a possibility if it becomes over-used.
