How Colloidal Silver fights bacteria and germs
Until the early twentieth century, doctors and healers used silver to fight infection. Silver was an essential element in the medical kits of army surgeons and frontier doctors. Even when antibiotics came on the scene, silver continued to be used in hospitals and to sterilise water and prevent the spread of disease.

How does silver work?

Silver is a natural element that has been said to be effective in killing more than 650 different types of bacteria, viruses and fungi. In its ionic (electrically charged) form, silver interacts with and disrupts the metabolic process of bacteria, leading to their death.

Why is colloidal silver so effective?

Colloidal silver is a suspension of tiny silver particles in liquid. It is this form of silver that is most effective in fighting infection, as the small particle size allows it to easily enter and kill bacteria.

How long has colloidal silver been used?

Colloidal silver has been used for centuries to treat a wide range of infections. It was first used in ancient Greece, Rome and China, and later by the American Indian tribes of North America.

Why is silver being used more now?

In the last few years, there has been a resurgence of interest in using silver to fight infection. This is due to the growing problem of antibiotic resistance, as bacteria are becoming increasingly resistant to the drugs we use to kill them. Silver is an effective alternative to antibiotics, and is being used more and more to treat a wide range of infections.


Colloidal silver has a number of benefits:

  • It is effective against a wide range of bacteria, viruses and fungi.
  • It is affordable and easy and safe to use.
