Colloidal silver is a solution of tiny silver particles suspended in a liquid base. It's marketed as a remedy for a range of health problems.

Silver, slightly different from colloidal silver at the molecular level, has been used in medicine for centuries. In the past, it was claimed to be a cure-all for everything from tuberculosis and arthritis to herpes and cancer. Silver was also used as an antimicrobial for wounds. Modern colloidal silver products are sprayed or applied to the skin.

Possible Side Effects

Colloidal silver is SAFE when applied to skin.

Colloidal silver is LIKELY UNSAFE when taken in excess by mouth or injected intravenously (by IV).

If used in excess, the silver in colloidal silver products can get deposited in vital organs such as the skin, liver, spleen, kidney, muscle, and brain. This can lead to an irreversible bluish skin discoloration that first appears in the gums.

It can also stimulate melanin production in skin, and areas exposed to the sun will become increasingly discolored.

Special Precautions & Warnings

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Increased silver levels in pregnant women have been linked to abnormal development of the ear, face, and neck in their babies.

Colloidal silver supplements in excess can also lead to silver accumulation in the body, which can lead to an irreversible bluish skin discoloration known as argyria. Silver can also be deposited in vital organs, where it does serious damage.
