Colloidal Silver: 5 benefits and uses

If colloidal silver hasn’t popped on your radar yet then it soon will. If you relish natural remedies to every day problems then you’re going to want a bottle of colloidal silver.

So what is colloidal silver?

Colloidal silver benefits the body in numerous ways because it has a direct effect on cellular respiration. It is a mineral solution that contains silver ions and small charged silver particles, suspended in a distilled water.

That's a technical way of saying that this makes it an excellent anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and anti-viral solution.

Yep, all those things in one small bottle.

Here are just 5 benefits and uses of Colloidal Silver.

It’s an anti-viral.

Colloidal Silver works by suffocating viruses and therefore stopping or reducing the activity of that virus. It’s often used as an anti-viral to help with shingles, herpes, thrush, warts and pneumonia.

Sinus Infections

If you’ve ever suffered with a sinus infection then you’ll know how painful it can be.

The good news is that colloidal silver can benefit people suffering from sinus infections because it is shown to kill Staph aureus (aka a bacterial that’s frequently found in the nose, respiratory tract, and on the skin causing respiratory infections such as sinusitis).

Research has shown that hidden infections by pathogens could be a cause of respiratory inflammation associated with common allergies and asthma.

Colloidal silver destroys Pseudomonas aeruginosa infections, which may be the reason why airborne allergy sufferers often find such dramatic relief using this product.

Pneumonia, Colds and Flu

When we have the sniffles the first thing we reach for is over the counter medication, however, a study done in 2011 by the NIH showed that people treating the common cold and flu with colloidal silver recovered faster than those who received the placebo effect.

When cold and flu turns more serious and develops in to pneumonia or bronchitis then colloidal silver also plays a major part in helping to heal.

Especially, when it comes to viral pneumonia which can not be treated with antibiotics.

By inhaling the silver it will directly come in contact with the germs residing in the lungs which cause the bronchitis or pneumonia.

It’s essentially the same thing as using respiratory support, and it works quickly, clearing it up within a couple of days.

Treats Wounds

Colloidal silver can help speed up healing in the skin and other soft tissues making it an excellent remedy for wounds, burns or any other form of skin health. Used topically it will help disinfect and heal the wound in question.


Colloidal silver has the ability to control antibiotic resistant superbugs. A recent study by Dr Larry Ford showed over 650 different disease causing pathogens that were destroyed in just minutes when exposed to small about of colloidal silver.

Unlike antibiotics, colloidal silver doesn’t create a resistance of immunity in the organisms that it kills.

This makes it an effective remedy for eliminating bacterial infections and also stopping further mutations to form.

Using colloidal silver requires different dosages for each condition so be sure to check the instructions before you begin use.

It's important to not use it for more than 14 days in a row. You should also increase your use of probiotics whilst using the silver to maintain a proper balance of microflora. This is due to the silver being such a powerful anti-bacterial agent.
