A colloid refers to a substance that consists of ultra-fine particles that do not dissolve, but remain suspended in a medium of different matter. These ultra-fine particles are larger than most molecules but so small they cannot be seen by the naked eye. Colloidal silver is not a chemical compound containing silver, but a pure metallic silver of sub-microscopic clusters of just a few atoms, held in suspension, in pure water, by the tiny electric charge on each atom.
“As an antibiotic, silver kills over 650 disease-causing organisms; resistant strains fail to develop. Silver is absolutely non-toxic. Silver is the best all around germ fighter we have. Doctors are reporting that, taken internally, it works against syphilis, cholera and malaria, diabetes and severe burns.”
