Although silver is not associated with any adverse health effects (only with cosmetic effects), the EPA establishes exposure limits for many materials based on various possible areas of concern. To our knowledge, silver is the only chemical or substance which has an RfD that is not based on an adverse health effect, but rather on…Details
The color is a result of light reflecting off the metallic particles in the water. If there is no color from reflected light, the product is probably mostly ionic or contains little if any silver.
There is much contentious debate within the colloidal silver community about ionic silver vs. particle silver. It is our belief that there are misconceptions on both sides of the issue, by some that only non-ionic “silver particles” are effective and by others that “ionic silver” is most effective. The truth is, they are both silver…Details
If silver is such a potent anti-microbial agent, why isn’t it used by mainstream medicine to treat people with illnesses for which there may be no other help?
First of all, there is a mindset within the “medical establishment” that believes that no method or product is valid unless it has gone through their filter of approval. Some of this comes from an inherent academic and intellectual arrogance that often pervades any field or professional in which a higher level of education is…Details
According to researchers, silver inhibits the growth of one-celled organisms by deactivating the organism’s oxygen metabolism enzymes. This action in turn, destroys the organism’s cell membranes, stopping the replication of the organism’s DNA. This is a completely natural reaction to silver by these organisms and is not chemically manipulated by man. There is also some…Details
By far the most frequent questions we receive here at Utopia Silver concerning silver are, “Does silver really work?” and “How much silver must I use for it to be effective?” The first question is a moot point in any real world science; silver kills one-celled organisms (germs), period. Any opinion to the contrary is…Details
How important is particle size and is a high ppm colloidal silver product required for effectiveness?
March 24, 2022 (Updated) You cannot judge colloidal silver products based solely upon parts per million (ppm). But a smaller particle size product is potentially more effective. Silver is only effective to the degree that the surface area of the silver particles are able to come into contact with a micro-organism. To exaggerate size so…Details
by Ben Taylor (UtopiaSilver.com) The questions asked about colloidal silver (which is actually particle silver) and ionic silver are too varied and numerous to list them all. Often the questions asked are from the perspective of one who doesn’t understand the difference between particle silver and ionic silver. Those familiar only with ionic silver usually…Details
When we use the term “colloidal silver”, we use the Chemistry definition of “colloid” as a system in which finely divided [silver] particles are dispersed within a continuous medium (de-ionized water in the case of our product) in a manner that prevents them from being easily filtered or rapidly settled. …But there are also definitions…Details
