What is colloidal silver?
 

what is colloidal silver
"Colloidal" is many times a very misrepresented title used in the marketplace as it has been used to encompass multiple types of distinctively different silver solutions. SilverLungs chooses to term these various solutions specifically on what type of silver solution is being referenced rather than using the term generically as most of the industry has chosen to do. We could choose to term all silver solutions as "colloidal" and conform to the loose language used so commonly in the marketplace, yet we have chosen to term the type of silver specifically to better educate the consumer so they can look closer at their distinct differences.

Although there are many other laboratory silver types made for specific industrial reasons (not mentioned below), there are essentially four main types of silver solutions sold most commonly for the "dietary supplement" market. These four main types are:

- Ionic silver
- Colloidal silver
- Protein silver
- Citrate silver


Ionic silver is defined as a concentration of silver ions suspended in highly purified water where the majority of the solution is comprised of positively charged silver atoms. When a silver atom loses one or more of its electrons, it is now termed an "ion" of silver and carries a positive charge because the protons of its structure now outnumber the electrons. Protons are positively charged while electrons are negatively charged. A greater amount of positive elements shifts the charge of the atom (ion) to positive. Ionic silver is denoted in physics and chemistry as (Ag+).

Colloidal silver is defined as a concentration of nano-sized particles of silver suspended in highly purified water where the majority of the solution is non-ionic, pure silver metal where there are no other additives such as citric acid, fulvic acid and/or proteins/polymers. This means pure silver metal and pure water, nothing more.

The academic definition(s) of colloid/colloidal are varying in use and can include particles, particulates, molecules, atoms, compounds, etc. Because the many definitions are non-specific, the silver solution industry has loosely used this term to describe virtually all solutions where silver (in whatever form) is suspended. This is why definitions of different silver types should be defined and why we reserve the term "colloidal silver" as "...a concentration of nano-sized particles of silver suspended in highly purified water where the majority of the solution is non-ionic, pure silver metal where there are no other additives such as citric acid, fulvic acid and/or proteins/polymers. This means pure silver metal and pure water, nothing more."

We do not use terms in a non-specific or generic way. Whenever there is reference in our literature to "true" colloidal silver, the word "true" is assigned to express non-ionic, pure silver metal in suspension rather than to mean the various other types of silver as well. Furthermore, "true" is not used to express that colloidal silver is "better" than other types of silver solutions (i.e. ionic, protein, polymer, citrate or fulvate silver.)

Protein silver is a commonly shortened term for "mild silver protein" and is a silver solution that incorporates polymers derived from animal and/or plant sources. The main scope of protein-based silver solutions is to allow for much greater concentrations of silver to be achieved while still holding in suspension. There are natural saturation limits as to how much silver (ionic or non-ionic) that can hold in suspension (in a pure water base) before it reaches saturation and begins to precipitate to the bottom as aggregates of large silver complexes. Large silver complexes are not a desirable component of any silver solution used for dietary supplementation.

The problem with protein/polymer-based silver solutions is trying to maintain ultra-small particle sizes (especially as the concentration is increased.) These solutions are found to contain much larger particles (better stated as "particulates") of silver compared to low concentration silver solutions that are held naturally in suspension within a pure water base. These high concentration silver solutions are usually 2,500 to 10,000 PPM in concentration. Only a tiny fraction of the silver content is smaller than 10-25 nanometers in size (which we consider to be the size ranges of a quality silver solution.)

The SilverLungs (pH) colloidal silver generator produces an average particle size of 8.4 nanometers.

Citrate/Fulvate silver is a silver solution that also incorporates citric acid or fulvic acid in its base for the purpose of allowing (ionic) silver concentrations as high as 200 PPM. The citric/fulvic acid simply changes the saturation limit of the ionic silver compared to silver ions in pure water that are not bound to these acids. A common problem with this type of silver solution is the risk of Argyria (a cosmetic skin condition) if abused in dosage and frequency. This form of silver we do not support in our products (as well as the protein/polymer-based solutions described above) for many reasons mostly related to safety.

While citrate/fulvate/protein/polymer based silver solutions have shown anti-microbial activity, we focus strictly on low concentration silver solutions comprised of pure silver ions and pure particles of silver metal that are very small in size (5-25 nanometers.)

Which form is better? Ionic silver or colloidal silver? This is the same as asking which tool is better, a wrench or a screwdriver? Obviously it depends on the better tool for the job. The question is conditional and sometimes both prove effective due to differing methods of action. This is why
The SilverLungs (pH) colloidal silver generator provides protocols for producing both purely ionic silver solutions and highly particle-rich (colloidal) solutions.

In general, we have found that ionic solutions are suggested for low salt environments such as the eyes, ears, nose, lung tissues and topically to the skin, while particle-rich (colloidal) solutions are suggested for exposure to high salt environments such as the stomach and blood. Although silver ions are the smallest form of silver that carry a positive electro-static "oxidizing" charge, they are highly reactive to chloride and other (anions) which form less desirable silver compounds such as silver chloride (AgCl) when swallowing and upon entry into the blood stream.

There are studies that show ionic silver clearly proves more anti-bacterial vs. true colloidal silver and the same is true for studies showing true colloidal silver proving more anti-bacterial than ionic silver. The results are based on the specifics of the testing application and scenario. Having the ability to produce both ionic and true colloidal silver solutions covers the full spectrum.

Owning a professional-class silver generating device allows you to finally break your dependence on silver solution manufacturers and their far-reaching "claims." The last thing they want you to know is that you should be making your own silver solutions right from home!

why silver
Source, Wikipedia: Silver ions and silver compounds show a toxic effect on bacteria, viruses, algae and fungi, typical for heavy metals like lead or mercury, but without the high toxicity to humans normally associated with these other metals.

Hippocrates, the "father of medicine" wrote that silver had beneficial healing and anti-disease properties, and the Phoenicians stored water, wine, and vinegar in silver bottles to prevent spoiling. In the early 20th century, people would put silver coins in milk bottles to prolong the milk's freshness. Its germicidal effects increased its value in utensils and as jewelry. The exact process of silver's germicidal effect is still not entirely understood, although theories exist. One of these is the oligodynamic effect.

Silver is widely used in topical gels and impregnated into bandages because of its wide-spectrum anti-microbial activity. The anti-microbial properties of silver stem from the chemical properties of its ionized form, Ag+. This ion forms strong molecular bonds with other substances used by bacteria to respire, such as molecules containing sulfur, nitrogen, and oxygen. When the Ag+ ion forms a complex with these molecules, they are rendered unusable by the bacteria, depriving them of necessary compounds and eventually leading to their death.

Silver compounds were used to prevent infection in World War I before the advent of antibiotics. Silver nitrate solution use continued, then was largely replaced by silver sulfadiazine cream, which generally became the "standard of care" for the antibacterial and antibiotic treatment of serious burns until the late 1990s. Now, other options, such as silver-coated dressings (activated silver dressings), are used in addition to SSD cream.

There has been renewed interest in silver as a broad-spectrum anti-microbial agent. One application has silver being used with alginate, a naturally occurring biopolymer derived from seaweed, in a range of products designed to prevent infections as part of wound management procedures, particularly applicable to burn victims. In 2007, a company introduced a glass product they claimed had antibacterial properties by coating the glass with a thin layer of silver.

In addition, in 2007 the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved an endotracheal breathing tube with a fine coat of silver for use in mechanical ventilation, after studies found it reduced the risk of ventilator-associated pneumonia.

how does it work
In lay terms, it is commonly believed that a bacteria - in the presence of nano-sized silver particles and ions - will become suffocated through a chemical process called "Catalytic Oxidation".

Other research shows that ionic silver can rob electrons from proteins and/or enzymes that a virus needs to survive and the same result is achieved indirectly by disabling these associated components required for the survival of a virus.

Ionic silver has been shown to regenerate cells that have been destroyed by disease or physical damage. Silver-infused bandages are commonly used in hospitals and "burn wards" to protect against infection and to greatly reduce tissue scarring.

what happened with the blue man
Simply put, Paul Karason made the mistake of adding (salt) to his distilled water as a catalyst to reduce the production time of his homemade silver solution. Paul was unaware that salt or other additives should never be incorporated into the "electrolysis" process when creating proper colloidal/ionic silver. While adding salt greatly reduced Paul's time to create his silver solution, it actually created a completely different compound called silver chloride. This silver compound (consumed in the tremendous concentrations Paul was producing) has been shown to cause a harmless skin discoloration condition called "Argyria." Silver chloride is in no way the same as pure colloidal/ionic silver based on a distilled water suspension.

Considering the facts and details surrounding Paul Karason's unfortunate situation, it should be known that no cases of Argyria have ever been linked to properly produced colloidal/ionic silver that were absent of salt and other additives. Paul's condition is the result of years of ingesting extremely high doses of silver chloride and not the result of waking up blue.

how much should i take
Due to Federal laws that govern "supplemental" health, we can only provide suggestions concerning the administration of the silver solutions produced through The SilverLungs (pH) colloidal silver generator.

Dosage is not a concern topically when dressing wounds, cuts, scrapes, abrasions, etc. We suggest a simple daily maintenance dose of 1 teaspoon orally (10 or 20 PPM) for keeping silver consistently present in the system. Nebulizing (i.e. breathing) the silver solution across 24-48 inhalations is suggested for a 72 hour cyclical maintenance regimen. For targeting the nasal environment, we suggest 1-2 sprays per nostril. All of these suggested dosages fall well-under the EPA 'safe' recommended daily intake of silver which has been established at 350 micrograms.

Our research shows that silver over-consumption is more of a concern when consuming unreasonable amounts or highly-concentrated silver solutions exceeding 100 PPM. These solutions are usually comprised of very large particles and groups of agglomerated silver excess from animal proteins and citrates required to create these high concentrations (which greatly reduces the quality and integrity of the silver solution.)

The SilverLungs (pH) colloidal silver generator was designed specifically to create extremely high-quality nano-sized particles and ions which greatly reduces any risk of agglomeration at the very low and safe concentrations produced.

what is the shelf-life
Properly produced colloidal/ionic silver has a long shelf life extending well-beyond a year, conservatively.

Amber colored storage bottles are recommended if storing your silver solution in bright daylight as they protect the silver content from exposure to UV rays which will hurt the stability of the ionic/colloidal silver solution.

Many types of plastic storage vessels are not recommended as they can react with the silver content and alter or degrade the integrity over time. If plastic is used as a storage medium, we recommend these three types of plastics as your first choices as these have shown to be very stable for reliable storage:

"PET"
- "PETE"
- "HDPE"


The plastic type is found on the bottom of most plastic storage containers.

Silver solutions should be stored in a cool, dark place as an additional step toward preserving shelf-life and overall quality.


Do not freeze a colloidal silver solution as this will force the metallic silver content to agglomerate into large complexes of silver, greatly degrading the silver content and integrity.
