You may be thinking; what exactly is colloidal silver?? Well, simply put, it is incredibly tiny-sized silver particles suspended in water, with a positive electrical charge. The smaller the silver particles, the more potent it has been proven to be.
In natural medicine, colloidal silver is considered to be a very useful and powerful antibiotic. It fights bacterial, parasitic, and viral Infections. It has been shown to disable the enzyme that one-celled bacteria, viruses and fungi need for their oxygen metabolism. The result is the destruction of disease-causing organisms in the body and in the food.
15 Benefits of Colloidal Silver:
Treats ear infection
Repairs the skin, and treats many skin conditions, including, eczema and psoriasis

Helps soothe sinusitis
Eases allergy symptoms
Aids in the treatment of cold/flu
Natural aid in reducing acne and skin blemishes

A quick note… When I did my research for this article, I found some negative propaganda based on an extreme lack of facts. There is no concrete evidence of true adverse reactions. However, misuse, not using “true” colloidal silver, or using cheaper products marketed as colloidal silver, such as ionic silver or silver protein, may be the culprit of any negative reports.
Something important to consider is that, because colloidal silver is such a potent antibacterial agent, you should definitely supplement with probiotics while using it to be sure that you maintain a proper balance of microflora.
