With so many types of silver supplements out there — Nano, Colloidal, hydrosol, bio-active — how do you know which one you should take?
Look for these elements in your silver supplement:
Ability to Bypass the Gut
This is the most important challenge silvers face, whether they are colloidal silver, nano silver, or silver hydrosol. When it comes to effectiveness, silver dietary supplement products should not just be judged by silver concentration, particle size, types of particles, or the results of organisms killed in test tubes in laboratories. What is important is how the silver is able to Penetrate, or Survive through the digestive tract and delivery into body fluids, tissues and structures throughout the body.
Oral doses of colloidal silver products all attempt to bypass the gut on their way to the bloodstream. And similar to prescription oral antibiotics, it appears that the gut intercepts a large amount before it can be delivered to where it is needed by the bloodstream. That is why with an acute infection, a doctor will give you an IV of antibiotics instead of an oral dose.
Silver Hydrosol is a mixture of positively charged silver ions and silver nanoclusters. Most colloidal silver products have larger particles (more than 5 nanometers), which lead to a visible yellow color because the larger the particle, the more light is absorbed, and is therefore visible.
A darker color is an indication of one or more of the following: Large particles that reflect or absorb visible light, compounds (salts or proteins), reduction of bio-active silver ions, or other impurities. A smaller particle is desirable due to surface area – and if visible color is an indication of larger particles, then visible color is your visual cue to less effective (larger particles) products. So yellow is your warning sign!
Most people have heard of PPM when it comes to silver supplements. PPM stands for “Parts per Million”.
First off, the usage of “PPM” in the Supplement Facts Disclosure Box required on all dietary supplement product labels is legally prohibited, and only product content expressed as weight per recommended dose (i.e., 2 mcg per 2 TSP dosage) is allowed to be published.
PPM may be considered misleading because of the tendency of people to associate parts per million with particles per million, causing them to think that the higher the PPM, the more particles per million. In fact, a bottle with only one super large particle could easily have a much higher PPM than the same size bottle with billions of small particles. The best-selling hydrosols have particle sizes today that make the typical old technology colloidal silver particles look like boulders. They get away with dosages that have much less total silver content, largely in part because the total silver surface area of the silver in a small particle solution can greatly exceed the total silver surface area in a large particle solution which contains dozens of times more overall silver. Safer and more effective, for sure.
However, smaller particles are easier to be converted from an inactive reservoir of silver metal into positively charged silver during silver’s normal half-life in the body. Additionally, the smaller the size of each individual particle of silver that is suspended in the liquid, the more efficiently absorbed and more surface area it has, which are both factors in being more effective.
For example, imagine your smoothie you make but don’t use a blender. How would you swallow the big ice cubes whole versus when it is smoothly blended in your smoothie? And your chunks of kale, celery and strawberries would choke you as you tried to swallow them whole! However, when it is all blended you get a little of every ingredient in every sip which easily gets swallowed and easily digested. Likewise, silver nanoparticles are much smaller than any of those blended ingredients. Nanometers are really small. In fact, you could lay one million nanometers across the head of a pin.
Only the smallest of the neutral silver metal particles (for example, those less than one nanometer) are converted in the body to bio-active positively charged silver. This means silver hydrosol, a mixture of positively charged silver ions and silver nanoclusters, provides the greatest one-two punch for immune support.
Safe and Non-Toxic
Argyria is a condition many are concerned about related to taking a silver supplement. It is caused by excessive exposure to chemical compounds of the element silver, or to silver dust. The most dramatic symptom of argyria is that the skin turns purple or purple-grey. It may take the form of generalized argyria or local argyria.
The risks and toxicity associated with silver have always been attributed to extreme quantities of silver arising from silver salts or silver compounds and inhaled silver powder, none from oligodynamic silver. Oligodynamic means the toxic effect of metal ions on living cells, algae, molds, spores, fungi, viruses, prokaryotic and eukaryotic microorganisms, even in relatively low concentrations. By definition, it would be functionally impossible for oligodynamic silver to achieve toxicity levels, as determined by the Environmental Protection Agency (data last accessed 09/27/17).
Silver hydrosol has never been reported to cause a single case of Argyria or toxicity.
Formulated with Distilled Water
You have to start with the water. Everybody uses reverse osmosis (RO) water now. Everybody. But reverse osmosis water creates dead water. It’s dead, and it’s been corrupted. Water needs to live, to structure, to hold memory. Reverse osmosis is just water torture, where the water is literally smashed through impossibly small membrane spaces where it comes out mangled and corrupted. And did I mention dead?
Ozone can catch things that reverse osmosis, in the real world, can miss. But more importantly, ozonation is what brings the water back to life, back to zest, back to what you want to drink. Kind of similar to the way that rain water has to pass through the ultraviolet light of the upper atmosphere, which is one of the ways ozone can be made.
Furthermore, what you really want is distillation. Distillation is the natural way, the safe way, the way that leaves you with the best, purest water that comes out beautifully. Combine that with the introduction of ozonation and special water handling and processing during manufacturing, and it may be possible to produce water with unique properties.
Applied Vibrational Frequency™ Technology
Applied Vibrational Frequency™ Technology uses a proprietary electromagnetic process to help cancel out imbalances in the body and promote healthy frequencies.
We ALL have our own Frequency. Every animal, plant, and even every tissue, cell, organ, allergens, viruses, bacteria and fungi that reside inside of us have their own unique frequency. We use Applied Vibrational Frequency in Accelerated Silver to help cancel out the negative frequencies and help improve the healthy frequencies in the body.
What we may discuss regarding the benefits of Applied Vibrational Frequency™ is constrained by FDA regulatory considerations and our own intellectual property confidentiality. A simple internet search using the terms “vibrational therapy” and “frequency healing” will help you understand this concept in more detail.
After years of interest and study, Accelerated Health Products has identified what we believe are the most effective and beneficial technologies and processes, and we now use these to apply Vibrational Frequencies to our Accelerated Silver.
Please note this important point: we are allowed to claim that we apply Vibrational Frequencies, but we are not allowed to claim what they do or how they improve our product — at least for now, while we wait for the scientific and medical community to catch up to the new paradigm of vibrational frequency science.
