The “4 P’s” to Choosing the Right Colloidal Silver Supplement
Shopping for a quality colloidal silver supplement can be confusing. Every brand claims it’s superior because it has “higher ppm” or is more “concentrated.” How do you know your choosing the right colloidal silver product? We’d like to help by providing you with 4 important things – or “4 P’s” – to consider when evaluating silver products and making your decision.
POSITIVE CHARGE. According to the scientific (peer-reviewed) literature, positively charged silver ions are the bio-active form of silver and are bioavailable. Therefore, make sure to look for a high ratio of positively charged silver – as close as possible to 100% in the silver supplement you buy.
PURITY. Purity refers to how clean and pure the silver that is used to make the product is. Is it contaminated with other toxic heavy metals, or is silver the only detectable metal in it? Silver is not naturally 100% pure, but it can be refined up to 99.999% pure, so look for a product that uses 99.999% pure silver. You also want to be sure that pharmaceutical-grade purified water, meeting USP standards, is used in the manufacturing process. To guarantee purity, look for silver manufactured in a GMP Certified facility and bottled in dark amber glass.
PARTICLE SIZE. The smaller the metal particle, the easier it is for it to be converted from an inactive reservoir of silver metal into positively charged bio-active silver during silver’s normal half-life in the body.* Additionally, the smaller the size of each individual particle of silver that is suspended in the liquid, the more surface area it has and the better it can be absorbed* which are both factors in being more effective.*
PPM (Parts Per Million). Less is more with silver PPM. Technically, one PPM equates to 1 milligram per 1 liter of liquid. The label of all silver dietary supplements tells you the TOTAL silver concentration. Yet the BIO-ACTIVE silver concentration is the part that helps you (yes, the positively charged and smallest particles!). When a silver product contains the most active species of silver, coupled with the smallest particle size and greatest amount of positively charged silver, then a safe low concentration of 10 PPM bio-active silver is all that you will ever need. Higher concentrations of total silver can lead to increasing risks for toxicity; therefore, you would want to look for a formula with the maximum bioactivity and thus lower concentration.
Be sure the manufacturer clearly identifies each of the “4 P’s” on the label before you chose a colloidal silver supplement and make a purchase!
