America has a love affair with our pets. 68% of U.S. households own a pet, which averages out to approximately 85 million families1. Not only are we saving a life when we adopt an animal from a shelter, there are also a lot of benefits for humans from having pets. (please see 5 Benefits of Growing Up with Pets).
Keeping our pets happy and healthy is always our goal. After all, they are part of the family, too. However, veterinary visits are not inexpensive and some pet surgeries can cost in the thousands of dollars2. Many Americans are looking to natural and safe ways to keep their furry friends strong and active throughout their lives, hoping to keep away from the vet’s office as much as possible.
One way to help accomplish this is to support your pet’s immune system with vitamins and supplements straight from nature. One such supplement that many pet owners are looking into is colloidal silver, also known as silver water. In this article, we’ll take a look at what colloidal silver is and help you understand whether it’s a good supplement option for your pet.
History of Silver
Silver has many benefits and uses3 and has been used extensively throughout recorded history for a wide range of medical reasons4. Silver was used to protect the purity and safety of drinking water in ancient civilizations, treat wounds and infections in WWI, even NASA relies on silver ions to help purify water on the international space station. Colloidal silver has been used to safeguard human health for over 125 years.
What is Colloidal Silver?
Colloidal silver is a solution consisting of tiny particles of silver suspended in liquid. It is a generic term that refers to silver marketed as supplements and can go by several names, including true colloidal silver, ionic silver, silver protein, silver water, structured silver and silver hydrosol, among others.
The Best Silver Choice
Like most things in life, all colloidal silver is not created equally. There are many inferior brands in the marketplace and there are even people who make their own colloidal silver at home. If you prefer to buy your pet’s supplements that are manufactured in a NSF GMP certified facility by a reputable company, consider the ultimate refinement of colloidal silver… Bio-Active Silver Hydrosol™.
Bio-Active Silver Hydrosol from Sovereign Silver® is the #1 selling silver supplement in the U.S. and may be an effective tool for immune support* for your entire family, including your pets.
Bio-Active Silver Hydrosol is composed of only 2 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 and effective species of silver (positively charged silver ions and the smallest type of silver nanoparticles called nanoclusters) at such low concentration that it is safe* for pets at up to 2,000 times the EPA Reference Dose† for humans5. A Bio-Active Silver Hydrosol has the smallest particles size and highest charge ratio of any colloidal silver product.
Being animal lovers themselves, the manufacturers of the Sovereign Silver, which is celebrating their 20th anniversary this year, realized that they needed to introduce a product that directly focused on safe, pure and easy immune support for our pets.* They introduced Bio-Active Silver Hydrosol For Pets in three delivery systems, Twist Top Bottle, Dropper-Top and a Fine Mist Spray.
