Although silver is a known component of the human and animal diet, FDA regulations limit the labeling of dietary supplements. Please consult with your health care provider to find out if silver hydrosol is appropriate for your needs during pregnancy or for the needs of your baby. Silver is a naturally occurring trace element found in all mammalian milk, edible mushrooms, whole grains, spring water, saltwater and even tap water, among others.
Argyria is a condition caused by the ingestion or inhalation of elemental silver, ionic silver, low quality colloidal silver, silver compounds or the inhalation of silver dust. The most dramatic symptom of argyria is the skin becoming blue or bluish-gray colored.
Argyria may be found as generalized argyria or local argyria. Argyrosis is the corresponding condition related to the eye. The condition is believed to be permanent, but laser therapy has been used to treat localized forms with satisfactory cosmetic results.
It is true that silver in huge excess beyond 10,000,000 micrograms over 70 years per EPA can, in some cases, lead to argyria, a benign cosmetic skin discoloration. Impurities in other colloidal silvers may also increase the risk. However, pure silver hydrosol – which is free of proteins, salts, and other compounds – poses no health hazard when used as directed.*
High parts per million (PPM) concentrations, particularly those that exceed the EPA oral Daily Reference Dose (RfD) for silver are not necessary and should be avoided.

All Sovereign Silver products carry a 3-year expiration date, supported by evidence from stability studies. This means that even at the 3-year mark, a silver content analysis would still show a reading of at least 10 ppm (label claim). Over time, the concentration may decrease gradually as the silver adheres to (or adsorbs onto) the inside of the glass bottle or the surfaces of the closure system. It is always best to consume the product by (or before) the expiration date.

While many Practitioners may recommend off label use of dietary supplement products to include silver hydrosol, Sovereign Silver is required by the FDA and FTC to only label and recommend our products within the guidelines of DSHEA (Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994), and therefore can only advise for oral ingestion for the structure/function claim of Immune Support* and not any specific ailment or symptom.

The carbopol used is approved for use in food as an ingestible. It is also used in medicinal syrups for infants. It is present as a fraction of a percentage of the total formula content, used only for engaging the liquid into a gel consistency for appropriate and prolonged topical application. The sodium hydroxide is a common ingredient used to adjust the product pH close to skin pH. The small amounts of sodium hydroxide added react completely to form a neutral pH environment that is safe for skin

Our silver product tastes like water, although sometimes people report detecting a faint metallic taste. This faint metallic taste might feel stronger, usually due to the pH of the mouth when the product was ingested. For example, if you recently drank coffee, which is highly acidic, you might be more apt to detect the faint metallic taste.

If Sovereign Silver ever tastes stronger (bitter/sour/pungent) than “water with faint metallic taste,” the primary reason would probably be due to metabolic changes, such as acidic saliva, most likely due to changes in diet or from dietary choices, both of which could result in a change in the pH of your saliva. Secondary issues could be leaching of metals from dental amalgams. However, leaching usually only occurs when the saliva is acidic, thus pointing back to a dietary change. You can easily find lists of alkaline foods on the internet.

Organoleptic (taste & odor) tests are part of our batch release parameters. Our product is manufactured the same exact way with the same exact components, each and every time, and we have never released a “bad” batch.

Sovereign Silver Bio-Active Silver Hydrosol is made of just two ingredients: 99.999% pure silver and pharmaceutical-grade purified water. Our particle size is so small (as small as 0.8 nanometers) that we have the lowest concentration with the most efficacy*. At 10 ppm, you will most likely only taste water!


Mild Silver Proteins (MSP) contain silver in a bound, or compounded form, thereby leaving less available for desirable interaction within the body.

Silver proteins are not necessary for the body to receive the immune supportive benefits of silver. In fact, binding silver into protein compounds actually limits their supportive interaction within the body. Learn more about the various Types of Silver. Why take higher concentrations of mostly inactive silver to achieve the same efficacy one finds in silver hydrosol, with > 98% bioactive silver?

More is not always better. What makes one silver product more effective than another is not its PPM but rather its particle size, charge (not neutral) and purity. The smaller the particle, the more bioavailable it becomes, and the greater the surface area available for conversion to bioactive silver while within the body.

Over the past few decades, the term colloidal silver has been dramatically polluted by manufacturers that produce (knowingly or unknowingly) silver products contaminated by the presence of salts, proteins, compounds and stabilizers, all of which serve to degrade and diminish the bioactivity of the silver.

Bio-Active Silver Hydrosol is a mixture of silver ions and silver nanoclusters as small as 0.8 nm in size. It is not to be confused with “ionic silver,” which means by definition that the product should be comprised entirely of silver ions.

Bio-Active Silver Hydrosol is composed of only 2 ingredients: 99.999% pure silver and USP 23, the United States Pharmacopeial monograph 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 as to present no fear of toxicity*.

A Bio-Active Silver Hydrosol has the smallest particles and highest charge ratio of any colloidal silver product, and so represents the ultimate refinement of the colloidal silver category. Learn more about the various Types of Silver and what makes a silver hydrosol different.

Silver hydrosol is a mixture of positively charged silver ions and silver nanoclusters (particles <5 nm). Larger particles (>5 nm) lead to visible yellow color, and more particles absorb more light. Darker color is an indication of one or more of the following: Large particles that reflect or absorb visible light, compounds (salts or proteins), reduction of bio-active silver ions, or other impurities. A smaller particle is desirable due to surface area – and if visible color is an indication of larger particles, then visible color is your visual cue to less effective (larger particles) products.

Surface area is of utmost importance, since the conversion from neutral metal to positively charged bio-active silver happens at the surface of the particle. Only the outermost layer or two of atoms on the nanoparticle surface will be able to convert during circulation in the body before excretion. Imagine having a large onion that weighs 1 pound, and having a basket full of many small shallots that weighs 1 pound. Only the outer layer of the onion or the shallots can be peeled off and used. The many shallots have far more material on the surface, making that a better choice. This is analogous to what happens in the body. Only the outer layer of atoms of the silver particle can be peeled off and converted into bio-active silver, before the remaining particle is excreted. A smaller particle size gives greater surface area and greater potential to convert into bio-active silver.

People have been taught in high school and college freshman chemistry that silver ions react with chloride ions to form water insoluble silver chloride. But in advanced courses in chemistry, one further learns that in the presence of large excesses of chloride ion, such as that found in stomach acid and/or blood, the silver exists as a water soluble complex ion containing 2 chloride ions per silver ion. Since this is water soluble, it can be readily absorbed through the stomach if necessary. Now, while the strength of the complex ion formed by the reaction of silver with the two chloride ions is enough to prevent precipitation, it is also not enough to prevent the silver from its normal ability. There is no loss in effectiveness*.

Silver does not alter the distribution of species in the gut microbiome*. A peer reviewed literature study by researchers at the University of Michigan looked at whether ionic silver or colloidal silver particles in pure forms altered the natural distribution of species in the gut microbiome (Wilding, et al., Nanotoxicology, 2016). A similar number of overall species was observed between a water-only control and all forms of silver administered orally at 2,000X the EPA Reference Dose for 28 days. However, a prescription antibiotic was found to disrupt over half of the species observed.  


Under the Dietary Supplement Health Education Act of 1994 (DSHEA), dietary supplements may only be marketed for children 4 years and older. See your health care practitioner for use with children under 4.


Silver is naturally found as a trace element in foods such as wheat, mammalian breast milk, and mushrooms, as well as natural waters. People on “free from” diets, such as gluten-free, dairy-free, or nut-free may not get the typical trace quantities found in the diet.  Furthermore, silver is recognized by Canada as a trace mineral necessary for the maintenance of health.

No, refrigeration is not required or recommended for any of our products. We only recommend keeping the product away from sources of electromagnetic energy (microwaves, electrical outlets) and direct sunlight. Product should not be stored in a freezer either.

If you are following the standard labeling instructions, having an empty stomach is not necessary; we do, however, recommend taking the product 5-15 minutes away from food and drinks. Consult with your health care practitioner for any other dosages. Sovereign Silver Bio-Active Silver Hydrosol is safe* to take up to 7 times per day for 70 years, or a total of 178,840 teaspoons in a 70 year period. There is no need to take breaks, and in fact we recommend a teaspoon per day for daily immune support.*
Dilution is never recommended, since the product contains a safe*, low concentration of silver. We strongly recommend against mixing it with saline or other potential binding agents. However, if your child just loves apple juice and is hesitant try something new, you can add the correct dose to their favorite drink right before they drink it. Note that dietary supplements are intended only for children age 4 and above.

The product will not be damaged if exposed to high temperatures (under 125 degrees Fahrenheit) for short periods. It is not advised to store the product in a car during the summer, where temperatures can exceed this for prolonged periods
