It’s amazing what you can find out about the body and it’s needs. I was reading about metal colloid’s recently and found that I really didn’t know much about it at all until I started digging a bit. I definitely didn’t know that it can be used as a dietary supplement.
Apparently, smaller concentrations of consumed colloidal silver have been used to kill numerous infectious bacteria and in the early 1900’s was used by physicians as an antibiotic.
Compounds of silver have a long history in medicine. Being manufactured by pharmaceutical companies under several different names, the colloidal silver material was found to be far too costly and instead the pharmaceutical industry developed much less expensive sulphate drugs and penicillin.
Metal colloids are today used as dietary supplements too, which provide the body with minerals necessary to maintain optimum health. Basic functions of minerals in the body are used for building and regulatingand affect the soft tissues, i.e. ligaments, muscles, tendons and the skeleton. Minerals also regulate bodily functions such as the heartbeat, nerve response, transport of oxygen to the body’s tissues, blood clotting, and the internal pressure of bodily fluids.
There’s also liquid colloidal silver, which can eliminate antibiotic treatments and while it has been named the ‘miracle elixir’, there are still ongoing discussions as to it’s long-term health advantages.
Silver in many forms has been used for hundreds of years as both a medicine and preservative by many cultures around the world. Apart from the cost many of the silver products available should, with present day technology not contain toxic forms of silver salts or very large particles of silver.
