Colloidal Silver has been around for centuries, but how many people understand its impressive uses? Colloidal Silver is a pure elemental silver in a liquid solution used to fight against infections, viruses, bacteria and other pathogens and of course, it is all-natural. At the forefront of development, family run business Optimised Energetics, have created a diverse range of high performance and uniquely formulated Colloidal Silver Plus products which are now available at Naturisimo and we have found out everything you need to know about the range.
Colloidal Silver is at the heart of your brand – what is it exactly and what made you first investigate this area of natural healthcare?
Research has shown Colloidal Silver to be one of the most effective natural anti-microbial agents with the capability to disable over six hundred and fifty types of bacteria, fungus and viruses.
Essentially it is a substance that is made up of ultra fine silver particles suspended in water, with a positive electrical charge. A colloid is when one substance is suspended through another; the term colloidal suspension is given to the overall mixture, hence the name Colloidal Silver.
We discovered colloidal silver almost by chance, investigating natural alternative medicines when a close member of our family was suffering from a debilitating illness. Once there, we were completely amazed by its properties and potential healing powers. We started to manufacture our own colloidal silver in the hope that others may benefit from it as we had and we haven’t looked back since.
Although it has been around for centuries, the benefits of using Colloidal Silver are not widely known… Why do you think this is?
Colloidal Silver is recorded as far back as 4000BC – it was drunk out of silver vessels in Eastern Persia as an immune boosting agent, the Babylonians and Ancient Greeks used it for antibacterial purposes and silver compounds were used to prevent infection in World War 1. As well as being used for its healing powers, it has been used in many different situations from sterilising surgical instruments in hospitals to eradicating germs in space.
In the 1880’s the process of using silver in medicine was refined and this is when ‘colloidal silver’ was first created. Researchers found that its smaller particles provided a safer, more effective alternative.
Up until the 1930’s Colloidal Silver was used by doctors and physicians as a mainstream antibiotic and considered ‘high-tech’. Production methods however were costly. As a result of this, during the emergence of the pharmaceutical industry, colloidal silver research was set aside in favour of what was thought to be faster working drugs. Despite its clear effectiveness, it started to ‘lose exposure’ and fell out of mainstream use. We are dedicated to ensuring it remains widely available and are continually looking to enhance our products, keeping up to date with all the latest research findings and ensuring we are at the forefront of cutting edge product development.
What conditions can be treated with Colloidal Silver?
As with essential oils, colloidal silver is widely known for its healing properties. Many people value its wide ranging benefits. A wealth of glowing testimonials, reinforced with numerous independent studies, speaks for the effectiveness of colloidal silver and strongly suggests that colloidal silver may help with a variety of conditions. In fact most of our sales are from returning customers.
Dr Machi of medbhealth magazine explains ‘Colloidal Silver is a powerful broad spectrum natural antibiotic, effective against viruses, bacteria and fungus, without causing side effects… it can be applied directly to the skin. Another benefit is that it speeds up the healing of external wounds on the skin’.
How do you use Colloidal Silver?
Colloidal Silver can be applied topically, directly onto affected areas. We have a range of dropper bottles, sprays and open necked bottles which means users have the choice of how silver solution is used, ensuring the most effective results for them.
What is the difference between the different types of Silver you offer?
We have three different types of enhanced quality silver using de-ionised structured water, offering the largest and the smallest particle size. They are as follows:
- 10ppm (brown label)
This small particle size solution has 10 parts of silver per million parts of water and is great for volume use.
- 20ppm (purple label)
An alternative small particle size solution with 20 parts of silver per million parts of water and therefore double the strength of the 10ppm. As such, this is a cost effective powerful solution.
- Amber Silver (amber label)
Large particle size, amber in colour, this is the premium silver solution available and is unique to us. Manufactured in a two stage process from crystal clear 20ppm Ionic silver and reduced using Maltodextrin to produce premier quality 80% plus Colloidal Silver.
Are your products natural? Is this important to you as a manufacturer and your brand?
We very much believe in the power of nature and its essential remedial properties. It is our mission to use natural ingredients wherever possible and we are constantly striving to achieve this goal.
All of our products are handmade with care at our purpose-built premises in East Sussex. By carefully selecting only the finest ingredients we are committed to offering the finest quality Colloidal Silver products with the greatest choice and value anywhere. We use medical grade equipment in our production process, which ensures a well regulated and consistent ionic and colloidal solution. Furthermore we use pharmaceutical grade water which is ‘structured’ to optimise its effectiveness in the body’s cells.
Are there any health risks associated with Colloidal Silver? How safe is it?
Silver is virtually non-toxic and is safe to use. “Colloidal Silver has absolutely no side effects. The particles of silver in colloidal silver are extremely tiny, making it impossible for any of toxicity to occur in the body.” *
