- Ancient Phoenicians used silver vessels to keep their drinking liquids from spoiling.
- Pioneers kept milk drinkable for longer periods of time by putting silver coins in their jugs.
- WWI medics dressed battle wounds with silver leaf.
As a natural antibiotic, silver still has many uses across the spectrum of healthcare today and can now be harnessed for use within your own home.
When researching silver supplements, it’s important to find products with ideal levels of “bioavailability.” In order for silver, as a substance, to benefit your immune system internally, it needs to be reduced to a nano level for maximum absorption and potency (around 20 ppm). This capacity for absorption into the bloodstream is known as bioavailability.
The ability to make silver bioavailable has made it possible to experience the benefits of silver in every activity you’re already doing throughout the day: when you’re taking your morning vitamins, applying lotion or hand sanitizer, or treating minor wounds and burns.
This winter, include a teaspoon dose of colloidal and ionic silver to your morning regimen to give your immune system a daily boost.
Cleanse, purify, and moisturize your skin naturally with a silver-infused cleansing gel. It can be applied as often as needed and is safe for children as it poses no risk of heavy metal contamination.
As a perfect addition to any first aid kit, a silver-infused, water-based gel treats and cleanses minor topical wounds to prevent infection and promote healing. Tests have shown this gel to have a positive effect on the reduction of common and dangerous microorganisms, such as:
- Staphylococcus aureus. Staph bacteria is responsible for a range of skin ailments and infections, but can lead to more serious conditions like pneumonia, meningitis, toxic shock syndrome, and sepsis.
- MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) is a type of S. aureus that is resistant to many types of antibiotics and is often contracted in hospitals.
- Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a bacteria characterized as an opportunistic human pathogen that can cause chronic infections in cystic fibrosis patients.
- Escherichia coli (E. coli) is a bacteria with certain strains that cause bloody diarrhea, anemia, or kidney failure and can be contracted in contaminated meat, milk, and produce.
- VRE (vancomycin-resistant enterococci), like MRSA, is a bacteria that has adapted to resist some antibiotics, with most infections occurring in hospitals.
- Candida albicans leads to yeast infections.
- Aspergillus niger is an especially dangerous fungal pathogen to those with weakened immune systems.
Give the important people in your life the gift of silver with an all-in-one kit, or complete your emergency preparedness plan with kits for your car and bug-out bags.
