When doing research about colloidal silver, or silver water as some call it, many types of silver and brands will pop up in online searches. However, one name that seems to dominate is Sovereign Silver®. But why? What makes it so special? In this article, we’ll examine why Sovereign Silver is the #1 selling silver brand in the U.S. & Canada.

If we look back through history, we see that silver and its colloidal forms have been used as germicides and disinfectants prior to the introduction of modern medicine1Colloidal silver is a solution consisting of tiny particles of silver suspended in liquid.  It is a generic term that also refers to silver dietary supplements marketed for “immune support*” and can go by several names, including colloidal silver, ionic silver, structured silver, silver protein, silver water, silver sol and silver hydrosol.

In 1999 Natural Immunogenics Corp. came along and introduced the U.S. to Bio-Active Silver Hydrosol™ and the Sovereign Silver brand.  By 2005, the product line was the top-selling silver supplement in the United States and continues to be the #1 selling silver brand in North America & Canada.  It is also sold around the world in places such as Europe and Asia.

Sovereign Silver’s Bio-Active Silver Hydrosol is the ultimate refinement of colloidal silver.  It is only composed of two ingredients; 99.999% pure silver and water that meets USP-NF standards for pharmaceutical-grade purified water. It represents a unique blend of the most active species of silver (positively charged silver ions and the smallest type of silver nanoparticles called nanoclusters) at such low concentration as to present no fear of toxicity†.

Other companies have tried to cash in on the colloidal silver market by offering cheap knock-offs.  These products have dramatically polluted the silver marketplace because of their low level of bio-active silver (around 12%) and because they can contain undeclared salts, proteins, compounds and stabilizers, all of which serve to degrade and diminish the bio-activity and purity of the formula.  Sovereign Silver’s Bio-Active Silver Hydrosol contains only silver ions and silver nanoclusters as small as 0.8 nm in size.  That’s it!  Bio-Active Silver Hydrosol has the smallest particles and highest charge ratio of any colloidal silver product, making it more effective* than other formulas with higher ppm (parts per million) – even those at 250, 500 or 1000 ppm, which typically contain at most only 10% bio-active silver. In other words, with silver, less is more – more safe and more effective.*

Always looking to research, test and develop new colloidal hydrosol products, Sovereign Silver introduced the world’s first Homeopathic Silver First Aid Gel, a topical application for minor cuts, scrapes, burns, bites, bruises and skin infections.  Sovereign Silver has also introduced Bio-Active Silver Hydrosol for Kids and Bio-Active Silver Hydrosol for Pets.

Natural Immunogenics, the parent company of Sovereign Silver, is still family owned and operates out of its own custom, GMP certified manufacturing facility including state-of-the-art laboratories.

For twenty years, Sovereign Silver has remained unmatched in its quality of products and its commitment to outstanding customer service.  When it comes to producing products that are safe*, pure and effective*, Sovereign Silver will always be the best name in the immune support* category for you and your family.*
