The antimicrobial effect of silver against
a broad spectrum of pathogens has been known and used for
thousands of years, but only very recently has modern science
acknowledged this fact.
The "silver effect" has been debated controversially for many years
in alternative medicine, conventional medicine and the pharmaceutical industry
alike and now more and more applications of silver are being employed in health
care, personal care and water and air purification. Most experts will accept
that it is silver in a colloidal state that has the greatest capacity of delivering
the silver effect to the human body. Human blood for instance is colloidal
itself and when colloidal silver of a certain make up is absorbed it can travel
the blood stream, thus reaching all parts of the body.
argentum plus – Premium True
Colloidal Silver is now available in a new form: argentum
plus Colloidal Silver 25 !
To distinguish our two Colloidal Silver products, we now call the original argentum
plus – Premium True Colloidal Silver: argentum plus Colloidal
The new Colloidal Silver 25 has been designed
to fulfill a specific objective: Its point of absorption
is mainly the intestinal tract, which Colloidal Silver 10
taken undiluted in small quantities does not reach easily
argentum plus Colloidal
Silver 25 Visual Inspection: Yellow
was first developed in 2005 and the point
of absorption is designed to be mainly the intestinal tract.
We have therefore increased its silver concentration to
25 ppm with a particle size of 0.001-0.005 micron to reduce
the amounts absorbed in the mouth and at the same time
increase the amounts that survive the passage through the
stomach: In argentum plus Colloidal Silver 25
approximately 20 % of the silver particles are in the 0.001-0.002
micron range which can be absorbed into the blood stream
while in the mouth, but 80% are in the 0.002-0.005 micron
range most of which will reach the intestines to be absorbed
The choice between argentum
plus Colloidal Silver 10 and 25 ppm
is now enabling users of our colloidal silver products to fine-tune
their application to the required point of absorption, which means
that the silver particles can be delivered closer to where they are
needed and thus make them even more effective.
It is in fact their size which determines the
efficacy and safety of the silver particles in a true colloid
of water and silver and as such is the most important information
you need to find out about, when choosing any colloidal silver
Particles too small (< 0.001 micron / single atom size as in silver salts,
silver oxide and silver chloride for instance) could accumulate in the body
causing side effects (argyria); particles too big (>0.005 micron) cannot
be utilized by the body and will be largely useless.
The silver concentration in argentum plus Colloidal
Silver 10 and 25 is only of secondary importance to their effectiveness:
While the silver content of the larger 0.002-0.005 micron sized
particle in argentum plus Colloidal Silver 25 is higher
(each particle containing between 16 and 40 ionized silver
atoms), it still only has the same 200 thousand particles present
in a 5 ml dose, that argentum plus Colloidal Silver
10 has and although it is potentially stronger because of more
ionized silver atoms per particle, we estimate that the absorption
rate of argentum plus Colloidal Silver 25 is very
similar to argentum plus Colloidal Silver 10: The
nominal ppm value may be very different, yet the potential
silver effect is not.
This illustrates well the difficulties
in evaluating colloidal silver products on the market today:
- Higher silver concentration is not necessarily
more effective, everything depends on its bio-availability
and delivery mechanism.
- Scientific evidence suggests that almost
all pathogens die off in the presence of silver, but that
means that the silver has to be able to get there first!
Living Energy Systems have with the introduction
of argentum plus Colloidal Silver 25 added a valuable
new tool to achieve this objective. Our range of colloidal
silver products can now safely be used to deliver the silver
effect to all parts of the body.
