Sovereign Silver was introduced in 1999 as the world’s only Bio-Active Silver Hydrosol. Colloidal silver is an anti-inflammatory supplement recommended by natural health experts to kill bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites, even for wiping out antibiotic-resistant infections and superbugs. Lab tests suggest that colloidal silver can destroy over 650 disease-causing organisms. People have used colloidal silver for sinus infections, pink eye, ear infections, swimmer’s ear, strep, staph, colds and flus, pneumonia, parasitic invasions, thrush, ringworm, wounds, burns, warts, acne, and many other conditions. Colloidal silver may encourage bone growth. It is also thought to prevent the fermentation of food in the digestive tract, alleviating symptoms such as gas, bloating, reflux, and indigestion. Many take Sovereign Silver to boost the immune system and support general health.
Silver Uses Throughout Time
Silver has had an interesting history. For centuries, silver containers were used to store perishables. Silver dinnerware was common among the wealthy and royalty, and those who ate from silver were seldom ill. In the days before modern refrigeration, silver coins were often dropped in jugs of milk to prevent spoilage. Now, among other uses, silver is often utilized to purify drinking water, including the water on NASA’s space shuttles and the International Space Station.
In the early 1800s, silver usage began to extend to the medical profession. Doctors used various forms of silver to prevent and treat infections in wounds and surgical sites as well as bacterial infections throughout the body. By the early 20th century, silver was the physicians’ go-to antibiotic. Unfortunately, this silver was expensive and not shelf stable. As pharmaceutical antibiotics such as penicillin gained popularity, the use of silver began to fall away. However, as we have seen in recent years, these modern antibiotics have led to life-threatening superbugs that are resistant to antibiotics — and antibiotics often have side effects. Silver does not harm the user and few bacteria are able to develop a resistance to it, so many are now turning (or returning!) to colloidal silver for numerous purposes.
A couple of decades ago, researchers discovered a way to create a shelf-stable colloidal silver. The resulting product was convenient, safe, and effective. Unfortunately, the FDA soon ruled that colloidal silver could not be marketed for its healing properties, but only as a mineral supplement, limiting our ability to fully discuss all the benefits of this supplement.
Colloidal Silver Safety and Side Effects
Silver is a metal that can accumulate in the body if consumed in high concentrations over extended periods of time. However, Sovereign Silver is in a solution at a very low concentration, and the particle size is very small. Therefore, even if you were to consume 7 doses of Sovereign Silver a day for 70 years, you would still be below the EPA’s Silver Reference Dose (RfD) for exposure over a lifetime. The Silver Safety Council has created a pyramid outlining safe silver usage. According to Jeffrey Blumer, MD, PhD, who directed both the Center for Drug Research and the Greater Cleveland Poison Control Center:
“Common substances like table salt and aspirin are harmless with normal use, but excessive intake can become toxic and even life-threatening. With normal responsible usage, silver supplements are entirely harmless to humans.”
Argyria is a rare, benign condition in which the skin takes on a bluish or grayish hue due to silver accumulation. While silvers containing impurities or of high concentrations may indeed cause argyria, Sovereign Silver has been evaluated and tested for purity and safety and will not cause the skin to turn blue. Argyria is usually the result of using homemade, cheap, or highly concentrated silver products.
The Purest, Best Colloidal Silver
Sovereign Silver upholds strict standards, with independent lab testing to ensure safety. This product is 99.99% pure, low in concentration (10 ppm), and has a small particle size of 0.8 nanometers. Unlike other colloidal silver products which contain no more than 10% positively charged particles, Sovereign Silver Bio-Active Hydrosols are comprised of 98% actively charged particles and contain no salts or contaminants, making it the top-selling colloidal silver product available. The hydrosol solution is created with only pharmaceutical-grade purified water. Sovereign Silver is packaged in amber glass bottles to avoid leaching toxins from plastics and maintain quality and purity.
