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 of “colloid” from Physiology and Pathology that have completely different and unrelated meanings to the Chemistry definition. To understand how these terms can easily be misconstrued and misapplied, particularly by governmental agencies, see below.
a. A system in which finely divided particles, which are approximately 10 to 10,000 angstroms in size, are dispersed within a continuous medium in a manner that prevents them from being filtered easily or settled rapidly.
b. The particulate matter so dispersed.
2. Physiology. The gelatinous product of the thyroid gland, consisting mainly of thyroglobulin, which serves as the precursor and storage form of thyroid hormone.
3. Pathology. Gelatinous material resulting from colloid degeneration in diseased tissue.
Gelatinous/protein, saline, and nitrate based products by their very nature are much more likely to be retained and deposited under the skin tissue than products that are simply mineral and water. Products which are mineral and water are rapidly and easily eliminated by the body’s natural mineral loss via sweat and urination. Advanced Colloidal Silver contains no gelatins, proteins, salts, or nitrates and is simply trace mineral and de-ionized water.
