Antimicrobial Silver Hydrosol An Essential For Every Medicine Cabinet
Submitted by Natural Immunogenics
There is no such thing as a "silver bullet." But because silver has many safe and efficacious applications, consider it a must-have for your household. Silver directly kills infectious microbes (including bacteria, viruses, and fungi) by attacking their oxygen-metabolizing enzymes, and essentially suffocating them. If you are suffering from a cold, for example, silver may be able to offer relief. By acting as a natural astringent, it can help calm swollen tissue, which in turn can make breathing easier. Its oxygen-rich content also helps increase the rate of healing.
Silver for Wounds and Burns
The January 2007 issue of ChemMedChem1, included research on silver's wound-healing and antimicrobial properties. The results provide "insight into the actions of silver and have provided a novel therapeutic direction for wound treatment in clinical practice." Silver's regenerative properties have been further studied in burn victims. According to the September 2011 South African Medical Journal2, silver-coated dressings have been developed as a first-line treatment in South African burn centers where burns are a leading cause of non-natural death in infants and children. With silver's wound-support capability, research is warranted for its intestinal tissue-regenerative properties on epithelial tissue there.
Silver for the Gut
Beneficial microbes in our GI tract are the essential life forms that keep the pathogenic variety in check as long as the terrain remains in balance and out of chronic inflammation. When disease-causing microorganisms multiply due to poor diet, antibiotics, chlorinated water, food poisoning, or vaccines, the result is: irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), Crohn's disease, colitis, and several other digestive ailments.
Although bioactive silver hydrosol is recognized as a broad spectrum anti-microbial, its ability to help restore gastrointestinal health may be equally important. Silver's anti-inflammatory and tissue-regenerative properties make it an excellent addition to a digestive health healing protocol.
In addition to a quick recovery, it has the benefits of not tasting or looking like medicine. In fact, it behaves and tastes like water. Silver particles have worked this way for centuries, but we have only recently begun to learn the extent to which silver can heal and boost immunity. Sovereign Silver™ from Natural Immunogenics is the first "true silver hydrosol" with the smallest particle size ever produced at .8 nanometers. The particles in this formula are so small that they are actually measured on the picoscale, which is even smaller than the nanoscale, meaning their health-supporting properties are even more dynamic and bioavailable than those found in formulas using nanoparticles. The solution of ultra-pure water and silver is created using an electromagnetic process that creates particles only when elemental silver is provided with a positive charge. Natural Immunogenics has shown that this process assures that each bottle contains at least 96% active picoscalar particles. With a low silver concentration of only 10 ppm, Sovereign Silver outperforms competing solutions with up to 1,000 ppm, according to studies performed by a third-party laboratory.
Silver hydrosol comes with a dropper for sublingual and oral use and as a spray for coating the mouth, throat, and respiratory tissues (great for travel). It also comes as an intranasal inhaler for the nasal passages (great for flu season). These methods make using silver practical for immune health, especially since most viruses enter via the nose and mouth. Some basic cold and flu applications include:
EYES – 2 drops repeated 4x/day
EARS – 10 drops in ear, hold for 5 minutes, release. Repeat 4x/day
NOSE – 5 to 10 squirts per nostril, while inhaling. Repeat 4x/day
SORE THROAT – Gargle 1 tablespoon lightly for 3 minutes (or spray throat 15x hour) while lying on your back, then swallow. Repeat 4x/day
INTERNALLY – Hold 1 teaspoon (or 5 full droppers) under tongue for 30 seconds, swallow. Repeat 4 to 7x/day
Sovereign Silver is a safe, effective, low-dose, versatile product that appears to exemplify the unique characteristics that make silver such a promising material.
