Colloidal Silver Liquid 

1.  What is Colloidal Silver?
Colloidal Silver is the most powerful, natural, antiseptic and body normalising substance ever discovered. 

2.  What does it look like?
When first made Colloidal Silver is clear, like water.  Up to 36 hours later it develops into a light gold colour.  As time goes on this colour darkens to a lovely gold colour.   Colloidal silver should not be taken if it has a blue/black or pink appearance.  This means it has been exposed to sunlight or has been contaminated in some way.  

3.  How is it made? 
Colloidal Silver is made by suspending pure silver rods into pure distilled water. When a low voltage electrical charge is placed across the rods, ions of silver are drifted off in the process of electricity passing from one rod to the other.  These ‘ions’ carry an electrical charge and in that state the silver remains suspended in the water. 

4.  What is a colloid?
A colloid is a liquid containing tiny particles of any kind of mineral, little larger than atoms.  They are so tiny that they are permanently suspended in the water.  Sea water contains colloids of all minerals, and the sea has been estimated to contain around 8000 million tons of colloidal gold. 

5.  Can Colloidal Silver lose its effectiveness?
Yes.  If Colloidal Silver is stored within the magnetic field of electrical devices such as TV’s, Microwaves refrigerators’ or washing machines, the electrical charge on the Silver colloids can be destroyed by that magnetic field.  Most bottles of Colloidal Silver have an expiry date stamped on the bottle.  

6.  How do I store my Colloidal Silver?
It is absolutely essential to store your Colloidal Silver in a dark place as Colloidal Silver is light sensitive.  A bathroom cupboard, bedside drawer or pantry with a door, are all ideal places. Do not store Colloidal Silver in the fridge. 

7.  Is Colloidal Silver used internally or externally?
Both, use internally to aid 100’s of ailments and use externally to assist in the cleansing and soothing of skin infections, i.e. cuts, scratches etc..

13.  Can Colloidal Silver be used on Plants and Vegetables?
Yes, when you plant anything new, water your plant with Colloidal Silver.  Use it as a fungicide to spray your plants and fruit trees to keep them free from blight, bacterial pests , leaf curl and moulds. 

14.  What is Argyria?
A side effect of Silver when made with inferior water, heavy metal and taken in excess, was a condition called Argyria.  The cause of this is when silver particles become lodged under the skin, fingernails and under the eyes giving the skin a blue grey look.

We are aware of two cases, a Rosemary Jacobs and Stan Jones.

Evidently Rosemary’s condition was caused by a Silver Nitrate nasal spray prescribed by her doctor not by Colloidal silver.

Stan Jones would generate an 8 oz glassful of Colloidal Silver every day, using tap water and salt which produces a very high ppm Silver Chloride.  He drank this solution daily for 8 years before noticing his skin discolouration.  Under these conditions it is not Colloidal Silver that is being made, but a silver compound whereby the silver has reacted with the minerals in the water, depending on what these minerals are.  Silver Chloride is one possibility, or Silver Calcite, or a Silver Magnesium compound.

Silver today is made in Colloidal form using pure distilled water.  The particles are so light they float in the pure water, so in our bodies this Colloidal metal will float in the bloodstream and cellular fluids that can be easily absorbed and eliminated.  This is why, today, Colloidal Silver is safe to use without the fear of Argyria 

15.  Are your plastic bottles safe?
Yes.  These plastic bottles are made from the new high quality PET plastic.  It is the equivalent of glass for inertness and although quite expensive is light in weight and safe.
