Ionic Colloidal Silver – "nature's antibiotic"

What is it?

The term "colloid" refers to a substance that consists of ultra-fine particles that are suspended in a medium of different matter (eg. Silver suspended in water). So Ionic Colloidal Silver is in fact ultra purified water with electromagnetically charged silver ions suspended within it.

Silver has been known as a bactericide for at least 1200 years. In ancient times it was known to prevent disease and it was said that disease could not be transmitted by drinking from a silver cup. In ancient Greece, Rome, Phoenicia and Macedonia, silver was used extensively to control infections and spoilage. Hippocrates, the “Father of Medicine” taught that silver healed wounds and controlled disease. Before refrigeration, silver coins were dropped in milk, to stop spoilage.and water was carried in silver vessels. Scientists routinely used silver coins in petri dishes to sterilize them and the use of silver plates for the surgical repair of human bones was standard.

At Simply Silver we manufacture a true colloidal silver in the ionic form where the particle size is 10,000 times smaller than body cells, which means it can easily pass through cell membranes where viruses reside. Being ionic it has a positive charge and thus is highly reactive, permitting it to strongly bind. Being a colloid, it has the highest bio-availability, since full therapeutic action of any medication requires its conversion into a colloidal state. Silver has antibacterial properties that work by disabling the specific enzyme that many forms of bacteria, viruses and fungi use for their own oxygen metabolism.

Colloidal Silver is nearly tasteless, odourless and non-stinging to sensitive tissues. It may be gargled, dropped into the eyes, ears or nose, sprayed or poured onto open wounds and burns, used vaginally, anally, atomized or inhaled into the nose or lungs. Ionic silver is a powerful tissue healing agent and has been used topically for decades in burn centres and currently represents one of the fastest growing sectors in wound care today.

In Europe, ionic silver is recognized as an accepted treatment for viral conditions. Walk into a pharmacy in Europe and tell them you have a cold or flu and you may well be sold a silver-ion compound remedy.


The American EPA reference dose (safe daily intake for life – 70 yrs, 70 kg person) of 5ppm Colloidal Silver is 14 teaspoons daily. This is based on 90% elimination rate from a sensitive persons body in 24 hrs. Many people use Colloidal Silver homoeopathically where just a few drops prove very effective.  Individual needs vary greatly and there is no standard.  Ionic Colloidal Silver has the smallest possible particle size.  Inhale the fine mist spray for sinus or sore throats.  Drops can be held under the tongue for a minute before swallowing to enable "sublingual" absorption. Apply drops to the eyes, ears or nose as required.
