What is Colloidal Silver?

I’m not sure if it’s some kind of a sign or not but I keep coming across resources for colloidal silver. Any and all research I’ve done on this subject tells me that Colloidal Silver is a colloid of silver particles in water. In the past it was used on external wounds and burns to prevent infection. Some alternative-health practitioners claim that it is a beneficial nutritional supplement. Some others claim that it’s a powerful antibiotic.

For me, however, further information has proven to me that it can be used to keep drinkable water potable over a long period of time. It’s also been used as a topical antiseptic for minor burns for more than 100 years. So maybe colloidal silver would be the route to take if you’re putting together some kind of a first-aid kit to keep around the house.

However, high dosages of colloidal silver could mean devistating results. Long-term intake of the product can result in argyria, which is a rare condition of blue or gray discoloration of the skin. While it’s generally considered permanent, some of claimed to have the ability reverse it. Note that Argyria is non-fatal and has no other known negative health implications. For those who care very much about their body wouldn’t like the discoloration of your skin, however, so keep track of how much you take/use and how often you use it. Argyria only shows up for long term high dosage intake, just keep track and you should be fine.

It can be used as a dietary supplement. It provides you with improved health and well being, as well as a low incidence of colds and the flu.

Just another resource to look into I guess.
