I'll just supply my own real world experience with using homemade colloidal (ionic) silver. Nothing scientific.
I care for 2 handicapped, wheelchair clients that live with us 24/7, and are shipped off to a Day Program each day M-F.
I grandson in high school lives with us.
I wife is an RN working in a nursing home.
There are plenty of opportunities for germs and viruses to be picked up from others and brought back to the house.
I'm actually the only one that takes the silver solution on a daily basis. For some reason everyone else seems to forget about using it. I take it 2 ways:
1. I simply drink some, and swish it around my mouth for at least a minute before swallowing.
2. I put the solution in a nose sprayer and once or twice a day take a good sniff.
3. I do have a third way when the need arises - inhale the silver solution using a nebulizer, which gets it fully into the lungs.
My goal with the nose sprayer is to make sure I get the solution to the back of the nasal passage/upper throat. You know, that place where a sore throat always seems to start.
As far as colds - if I do manage to actually catch a cold from someone, I increase my solution usage and always manage to stop the cold in a couple of days before it progresses any further.
As a note, Ionic silver has a tremendous drying effect of the nasal passages.
Viruses - does it work? Beats me. However, from my personal experience, I don't get sick when others in the house do. Don't know how many, but I haven't had the flu in years that I can even remember.
I can't, however, say that my good health has all been because of silver. I take a vitamin and mineral supplement called Tangy Tangerine, a lot, along with Essential Fatty Acids. I'm sure my good immune system also plays are huge role in not getting sick. Plus, at the age of 65, I have cut down tremendously my intake of gluten to stop damaging my intestines. I need good functioning intestines to be able to absorb nutrients.
Well, that's my experience which works great for me, so far for the past 10 years. Wish I would have started when I was a lot younger, but hey, younger people are invincible, right?
As a recent example, our handicapped clients, my wife, and grandson all had flu shots about 3 weeks ago. I did NOT.
Within the last week, one client and grandson had brief fevers and towing up. Didn't last long, but still. Coincidence with the flu shot? Don't know.
Nanosilver particles (NSPs) generally present at 1 to 100 nm in size in at least one dimension.1–4 As particle size decreases, the surface area-to-volume ratio of NSPs increases dramatically, which leads to significant changes in their physical, chemical, and biological properties. NSPs have been among the most commonly used nano-materials in our health care system for hundreds of years. Recently, NSPs have become of intense interest in biomedical applications (Figure 1), because of their antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory activity.5,6
Biomedical applications of nanosilver particles in human health care.
NSPs have been widely used for diagnosis,7 treatment,8 drug delivery,9 medical device coating,10 wound dressings,11 medical textiles,12 and contraceptive devices.13 As the use of nanosilver products is continually increasing, a better understanding of nanosilver biological interactions and their toxicity becomes necessary. This review critically discusses NSP synthesis methods, properties, and current and emerging medical NSP applications. Finally, recent advances concerning NSP potential toxicity will also be described.
A new technology that is different from any other silver product, NanoSilver. It has impeccable and intricately extensive state-of-the-art research behind it that continues in a broad spectrum of possibilities that go far beyond colloidal or ionic silver benefits. The process of creating this amazing silver is very unique! It holds many patents and is filing more all the time. This is far beyond any other silver product!
No one could say the same for ionic and colloidal silver benefits or reputations. None of this approval or acclaim has been bestowed on any other silver solution for going on a century. That's incredible, but there's more.
Former Surgeon General of the Air Force, P.K. Carlton, writes the following letter to the office of homeland security 2007 requesting the following:
“I feel it can be used in the area of bio-defense from bio-terrorism to infectious diseases such as SARS. The anti-microbial has undergone rigorous testing and has been found to kill Anthrax, Bubonic Plague, Hospital Staph and SARS. It is the first new anti-microbial for the hospital in many years. In addition it is non-toxic to humans, EPA approved (Hospital Staph and Bubonic Plague) and currently Sec 18 approval. The Solution has shown to be a wide spectrum anti-microbial/bio-contaminant that can be used to increase the safety and functionality of health care facilities in the event of bio-terror attack or infectious disease outbreak such as
SARS. In short, we currently do not have anything with such a wide spectrum of efficacy in our inventory. As such I recommend that the anti-microbial be evaluated for addition to the National Push-back stockpile. It will make our nation a safer place to live and work.” General P.K.Carlton MD.

Presented to Members of The House International Relations Committee Subcommittee on Africa, Global Human Rights, and International Operations
Good Morning. I am William D. Moeller, Chairman and President of American Biotech Laboratories of Alpine, Utah ("ABL"), a company which produces engineered, metallic silver, nano-sized particles in water-based products. Our engineered silver particles have performed far beyond anyone's expectations as anti-microbial agents, against a staggering variety of microbes such as malaria, flesh-eating bacteria (MRSA - Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus) andE.coli.
Whether used on surfaces as disinfectants or if taken internally as supplements, all of our ABL products are non-toxic and have no known adverse human side effects. Our products have surprised many experts in the medical and science worlds because of their ability to combat bacteria, yeast, and viruses. ABL products have been proven to destroy anthrax spores and bubonic plague bacteria on surfaces, to eliminate the malaria parasite in humans and a host of other beneficial results.
We have developed five products to date as well as several other new products currently in our product development pipeline. We manufacture all of our products in the United States. One product ASAP-AGX-32 (a water solution containing 32 ppm of our engineered silver nano-particles) has already been approved by the EPA as a surface disinfectant for hard, non-porous surfaces in commercial, residential, industrial, hospital and medical environments. Another product called Silgel is a non-toxic moisturizing gel, which utilizes our ASAP-AGX-32 as a raw material supply of silver particles. It is currently undergoing the final steps for FDA approval for the treatment of lacerations, first and second degree burns, abrasions, surgical wounds, skin ulcers etc. Several other new ABL products will soon warrant the filing of new FDA and/or USDA applications.
All my life I have been involved with the mining and processing of silver in Utah. I am Chairman of the Board of Clifton Mining, a Utah mining company holding several million ounces of silver reserves. My family and I are large stockholders in Clifton Mining. I have spent most of my life in Utah where my wife Jeneane and I raised our seven children together.
In the late 1990s, the price of silver reached a point where its mining and production costs were above its selling price. At that time, we needed to find an alternative use for silver that at least paid for removing the silver from the rock ore. We decided to devote some the resources of Clifton mining to try to create a new water-based product containing silver. Since ancient times it has been known that silver inherently possesses desirable antimicrobial and immune boosting properties. We planned to be the first to maximize those desirable effects of silver. We did our homework and found a plethora of colloidal silver products and devices littering the marketplace, most of which did not seem very sophisticated to us. Our analyses of various colloidal silver products (mainly dietary supplements) led us to the conclusion that these manufacturers lacked stature in the marketplace and the products produced were, at best, anecdotally effective.
In 1998 we created ABL with the idea of manufacturing high quality, standardized colloidal silver products. I talked all five of my sons into joining ABL in what we thought might be a nice family business. We worked hard inventing new methods to purify and standardize our silver products and, frankly, got a little lucky along the way because we ended up inventing and manufacturing something else all altogether.
Our initial discoveries are the subject of two issued US Patents: 6,214,299, which issued on April 10, 2001 and related US Patent 6,743,348, which issued on June 1,2004 (See Appendix 1). Additional discoveries are contained in several other pending patent applications, most of which are not yet in the public domain.
Although ABL's initial products were referred to as "colloidal silver," we now know that our engineered particles are quite different. When most people use the phrase "colloidal silver," they mean ionic silver, silver salts or silver nitrate in a gelatin matrix. ABL's liquid products do not contain ionic silver, silver salts or silver nitrates. Rather, they contain engineered nano-sized particles of metallic silver dispersed in a matrix of pure water. Although these products are primarily water (99.999%)
because the actual silver concentration is so low. Their unique potency has been demonstrated by numerous laboratory (in vitro) and human (in vivo) tests carried out by ABL, at ABL's request, and in some of the most interesting cases, without ABL's involvement or even contemporaneous knowledge.
ABL's first three products that we manufactured were dietary supplements. These products have actual silver concentrations of 10 parts per million ("ppm"), 14 ppm and 22 ppm and are sold through a number of different outlets. For example, ASAP 10 (the 10 ppm product) is being sold through General Nutrition Center stores throughout the country under the name Silver Biotics. This 10 ppm of silver particles in purified water is colorless, tasteless, odorless and is non-toxic. Based on our knowledge of the engineering of the metallic silver particles, we estimate the actual shelf life of our products to be in excess of 10 years.
As demand for our products grew, we began distributing ASAP 10 worldwide. In short order, many different positive antidotal stories began to pour in from around the world. The interest in our product grows and certain private investors joined our core "family and friends" group. One user's experience led to an important event that would forever open our eyes to the power of our 10 ppm ASAP non-toxic liquid.
In 2001, twelve bottles of our 10 ppm ASAP product fell into the hands of a medical Doctor in Rwanda, Dr. Ewabuhihl Ezechias. One day I received a frantic telephone call from Dr. Ezechias' office that was in Rwanda caring for a group of very young children who were in the last stages of malaria about to die. Dr. Ezechias was looking for instructions on how to administer our ASAP 10 product to these desperately ill children. I suggested to the Doctor that he measure out a teaspoon or two to each of the children, two or three times a day and that he repeat the process until the children hopefully showed some improvement. He responded abruptly that there was no time for measuring anything - the situation was far too grave for "such niceties." All of these children had temperatures around 105 degrees, had not improved with conventional treatments and were all about to die. He asked me if he could simply put the water into their bottles. Knowing of its totally non-toxic properties and sensing his desperation, I assured him that it would not hurt the children.
Days later, Dr. Ezechias contacted and told me that he had put the ASAP 10 ppm water directly into the drinking water bottles of 11 of these children. All 11 of the young children who received the ASAP 10 ppm got better. A week later, the 11 left his clinic alive and healthy. Sadly, there were other children who did not receive the ASAP treatment. Those children died in spite of receiving all the conventional treatments which Dr. Ezechias provided them. This affected me deeply and I realized that our ASAP 10 ppm had potent, positive effects on malaria patients. Besides the phone calls, we also received an indirect written communication from Rwanda which is included in Appendix 2.
Word spread quickly and soon scientists and medical doctors from around the world began to hear stories about ABL's silver products. One doctor from Mumbai, India, Dr. Dilip Mehta of Viridis BioPharma decided to check out the many stories. Without our knowledge, he began to test our products in a variety of different ways against several different micro-organisms. Dr. Mehta scientifically tested and compared our products with other silver-based products from around the world. Dr. Mehta concluded that no other product in the world had the biological efficacy of our non-toxic ASAP 10 ppm product. Traveling half-way around the world from India to Utah, Dr. Mehta unexpectedly showed up at our Alpine facility to begin a trusted and fruitful association advancing our knowledge and product base.
We also have met many important scientists along our journey, including Professor Rustum Roy who concurrently holds appointments with Pennsylvania State University, Arizona State University, and the University of Arizona. Professor Roy is a world leading materials scientist (please refer to www.rustumroy.com) whose initial interest was in determining and characterizing the physical properties of our water products. Because he was interested in water and its relationship to general health, Professor Roy wanted to correlate physical properties of ABL's water-based silver products with their superior biological performance. He found that our ASAP 10 and ASAP-AGX-32 water-based products are physically quite different in a number of inherent, measurable, physical properties from colloidal silver products. Professor Roy has now generated much data showing that our products are unique. Professor Roy has presented this data at several scientific conferences. Please see Professor Roy's letter in Appendix 3.
Professor Roy, in turn, introduced us to General Resonance, a cutting-edge science and technology company located in Maryland, whose work and expertise Professor Roy had scrutinized and tested at the Materials Research Laboratory at Perm State. ABL and General Resonance recognized their potential synergy and have formed a joint venture. The combination of General Resonance's fundamental understandings and its patented sciences and technologies with ABL's existing products and technologies promises to generate a long-lasting pipeline of new, more potent products with a
ABL manufactures its water-based products by controlling and delivering a few thousand Volts AC through highly purified silver electrodes in contact with the surface of high purity water. The silver in the electrodes is slowly dispersed into the water as metallic silver nano-sized particles. These engineered silver particles currently vary in size between about 10-50 nanometers in diameter, depending on the particular manufacturing conditions. Concentrations as low as 1-2 ppm have been shown to have efficacy against certain bacteria and viruses, however, the products being sold right now typically range in concentration of from 10 ppm - 32 ppm (i.e. ASAP 10 and AGX 32, both of which are greater than 99.999% pure water). These concentrations have been shown to kill or de-activate bacteria and viruses in a few minutes. Appendix 4 shows in brief summary form certain in vitro results and data which demonstrate the broad spectrum efficacy of ABL silver-water solutions against a variety of microbes (and related human diseases).
The data in Appendix 4 (along with other data not presented today) suggest that small amounts of selectively engineered silver particles can have dramatic anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-viral effects. Surface disinfectants (e.g., bleach) and most pharmaceutical products against these agents of disease function by various chemical reactions and are consumed and used up in the process. These agents that are consumed in this way must be replenished to remain effective. Our silver particles function differently and it is clear from ongoing research that our engineered silver particles are not consumed in chemical reactions the way other anti-microbial agents are. Rather, it appears that the silver particles function as catalysts, which promote certain lethal reactions in only unfriendly microbes (i.e., the destruction of bacteria, fungi and viruses). This is the same way platinum particles in an automobile's catalytic converter function. They promote lethal reactions in pollutants without being consumed in the process. We believe that this understanding is very important and partly explains the lack of any known negative biological side effects from the ABL products. If engineered properly, very small amounts of catalytic silver apparently can go a very long way.
After ABL learned how the lives of the 11 young children in Rwanda were saved (discussed above) ABL initiated contact with four different hospitals/clinics in Ghana. We shipped to these different medical facilities about 1000 of our 8 ounce bottles of ASAP 10. Obtaining good follow-up clinical data turned out to be quite difficult because once the patients felt better; they simply did not come back for further treatment and follow-up. For example, Appendix 5 contains representative data from the Justub Clinic, run by Dr. Agnes Abraham, who reported after her first trials, that typically their patients return to the clinic only if they are still ill, which was not the case with their patients treated with the ASAP 10.
Another preliminary trial occurred at the Air Force Hospital in Ghana where the Medical Officer in Charge was Dr. Evelyn Kwabiah. The five patients treated by Dr. Kwabiah all had positive outcomes (see Appendix 6). Dr. Kwabiah reported that patients with malaria who had received the ASAP 10: recovered faster than those receiving conventional treatments; recovered where conventional treatments had failed; or, that the ASAP 10 functioned as a prophylactic preventing the recurrence of malaria.
Ultimately, the success of ABL's ASAP 10 ppm against malaria gained such widespread acceptance in Ghana that the Food and Drugs Board of the Republic of Ghana issued a Certificate of Registration of a Drug for ABL's product (see Appendix 7).
Although we were receiving better clinical reporting, and Ghana had issued a Certificate of Registration, we still were not satisfied that the previous trials met the level of standardization we wanted to achieve. To obtain better data concerning ASAP 10's effectiveness against malaria, ABL (in cooperation with competent university medical professionals) designed a new protocol (see Appendix 8). The new protocol required that all Malaria patients be monitored for 15 days and were encouraged to return for follow-up testing and assessment with financial incentives (patients were paid a few dollars a day to come back and be monitored and tested). Appendix 8 contains the study protocol, results, and one representative patient's chart. (An Executive Summary of these more reliably executed Malaria Studies in Ghana, supported by ABL, is shown in Appendix 9).
Study #3 listed in Appendix 9 was the most reliable of the studies and used the protocol described in Appendix 8. The data showed that out of the 41 Malaria patients (ages 1-90 years) involved in the studies and receiving ASAP 10, all 41 people survived and there were no treatment failures. All
participating patients were deemed to have achieved full recovery in an average of 4.5 to 6.5 days, with recovery time differences probably being due in part to differences in total dosages. Clearly the data suggest that ABL's ASAP 10 ppm product, when administered in 2-3 teaspoon quantities 2-3 times per day (i.e., one ounce per day) reverses malaria and saves lives. The cost of this regimen in total is a few dollars and appears to be highly effective.
No undesirable or drug-like side effects were reported by any of the patients in any of these more rigorous studies. We believe that this was because the ASAP 10 ppm is primarily water with very small amounts of catalyst-like metallic silver particles therein,. This result is also quite different from all other known malaria treatments, which often involve quite uncomfortable side effects.
ABL has continued its efforts to determine the effectiveness of its ASAP 10 ppm product as an effective treatment against malaria. To that end, ABL sought the input of various malaria experts including that of Dr. Awa Marie Coll-Seck, Executive Secretary of the Roll Back Malaria Partnership hosted by the World Health Organization. Dr. Coll-Seck provided her comments which were instrumental in creating a proposed 660 patient study; initially to be performed in Senegal. This Protocol was just completed earlier this month, but has not yet been initiated. ABL hopes to be able to accomplish this or a similar study in the near future so that we can begin to have a larger impact on malaria worldwide.
Preliminary data generated by two independent laboratories suggest an efficacy of ASAP 10 ppm and AS AP-AGX-32 against tuberculosis. But, because this data is new and not yet reviewed, we are reluctant to share any of the data at this time. However, we are encouraged by what we have seen.
OTHER PRODUCTS OF INTEREST
1. Surface Disinfectant.
ABL received EPA approval for ASAP-AGX-32 in 2003 (see Appendix 10). ABL also received a contract (Contract No. V797P-5762X) with the VA Hospitals, to use this product as a surface disinfectant. Appendix 11 shows data recently generated by an independent laboratory comparing AGX-32 to eight leading disinfectants for use against Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). The data is reported two different ways: (1). "% Effectiveness," which compares how effective the leading disinfectant is compared to AGX-32 (e.g., "Phenol" is 40% as effective as AGX-32); and (2) "Coefficient," which shows the reverse or how much better AGX-32 is relative to the leading disinfectant (e.g., AGX-32 is 2.5 times more effective than Phenol). These data are very significant because AGX-32 is a non-toxic product, unlike most disinfectants, and yet functions as well or better than the other disinfectants. It can be used around hospitalized patients without any ill effects. Moreover, because the silver functions akin to a catalyst, it is not consumed in a chemical process and will continue to disinfect a surface until removed (e.g., by soap and water) from the surface on which it was applied.
2. Wound Care and Burn Care.
ABL has a 510(k) application pending with the FDA (see Appendix 12) for AGX SILGEL, a moisturizing gel containing ABL engineered silver particles. ABL expects the final animal study required for this FDA approval for wound care to be finished in June 2005. We anticipate that approval will be obtained for use of the SILGEL silver-gel product on: lacerations, abrasions, skin tears, leg and other surface ulcers, surgical wounds, first and second degree burns etc. The base material for manufacturing this product is ASAP-AGX-32 (a non-toxic precursor). This AGX SILGEL product is a broad spectrum, anti-microbial. SILGEL is not cytotoxic in studies performed to date (e.g., the gel has been proven to be non-toxic in the oral route, by mouse model studies up to 5000mg/kg of body weight). ABL's silver-gel provides moisture for wound healing and burn treatment, has no color or smell, requires no refrigeration and remains stable from 17-113 degrees Fahrenheit. In FDA approval comparison studies, AGX SILGEL was found to be over 10 times more effective in killing MRS A compared to a leading FDA approved silver-based product (at a challenge of about 10,000,000 bacteria/ml), even though the leading and approved product contains more than 300 times as much silver than AGX SILGEL.'
1 This product has not been offered for sale due to the pending FDA Application.
Dr. John A. Shaw, a practicing oncologist in Arizona, has recently been using AGX Silgel on an experimental basis to treat radiation burns from radiation therapy used for treating breast cancer. His reviewed work has been conducted at hospitals in Arizona. His initial findings are that the AGX Silgel promotes healing more effectively than other commercially available products. A letter from Dr. Shaw is included in Appendix 13.
GOVERNMENT ACTIVITIES OF INTEREST
ABL has initiated a number of recent US Government contacts, which have resulted in the testing of ASAP-AGX-32 and AGX Silgel products (or at least the desire to test). Many of these contacts have generated desirable data showing the efficacy of ABL's products for different uses. We have not offered these products for sale to the government yet.
Letters of support for ABL from Senator Orrin Hatch and Lt. General Paul K. Carlton, Jr., addressed to The Honorable Tom Ridge, can be found in Appendix 14.
ABL has invented and patented a process and a product that should have wide applicability to a variety of bacterial, fungal and viral species. The production process is robust and can be quickly scaled-up to meet virtually any production demands. The ASAP 10 ppm product, in quantities of about 1 ounce per day, seems to eliminate the symptoms of malaria in human patients in about 4-6 days. Thus, one 8 ounce bottle of ABL's ASAP 10 ppm has been more than enough to eliminate the symptoms of malaria in each of the patients involved in the African studies. ABL is ready to make this product (or the process) available on a world-wide basis. We hope that the Committee will be sufficiently impressed to help us to help others.
Those products [and many more] which Bill spoke of in the above testimony, all received FDA approval at a later date.
It would seem that nano Silver is very interesting indeed.
I use a Silver lungs generator. Takes about 2 hours to make 20 ppm batch.
I suspect this is ionic Silver?
My question is: How do I know what the particle size of my Silver might be? Am I making ionic or nano? What is the process for making nano if I am not currently making nano?
Anyone have more info about this?
I have dug this out on the interweb.
Although I am still quite comfortable using my 9 V 300 milliamp power supply, my results seem similar to those outlined in the article.
At present time, I will just keep doing what I'm doing, it works well for me.
I have already read a lot of literature describing how to use the arcing process to create “nano silver”, but I'm quite comfortable with what appears to be a perfectly good colloidal silver.
Maybe at some point in the future I'll find my “mad scientist” hat, and develop a new process, but at this point, I see no need for it.
Generally speaking, I just stick with what works.
Great thread, I hope more people figure out how to make their own and use it.
for our purposes, the difference between nano silver and colloidal silver don't seem significant enough to matter. I know there are some who would disagree, but I think what you are making will work just fine.
As I previously outlined, I tend to get a clear batch if I run the process once, and a slightly amber or yellow batch if I run it twice. So either way, I have a medicinal silver solution at my disposal.
Except for Dr. Rima who is obviously trying to market her particular version of nano silver, I fail to see the significance of the process, as I do not think the end product is all that different.
That's just my opinion, but I will keep reading contributions to this thread to see if my mind can be changed.
It is not a priority with me.
Thanks to Silver Run NW,
last nights "bedtime story" was quite insightful: http://healthwyze.org/index.php/component/content/article/633-making-and-using-genuine-colloidal-silver.html
In case someone who's new to this process didn't go back to the old forums, I thought I'd drag this forward to the present one.
As you can tell, I like to keep things that work simple.
Though this is not definitive, it is how I make my colloidal silver, and since I learned from a picture that Bollocks posted a couple of years ago, I thought as a public service, some of you would appreciate the photography, since as they say, "a picture's worth 1000 words".
First we start with the clip lead cut in half, and attached by the wire to a power supply. This picture shows a well worn Eagle, and Maple, they've been in use daily for well over a year. The clip leads are simply tied to a pencil getting the clip as close to the pencil as possible:
I've tried both eagles and maples, and I don't think the difference between .999, and .9999 is significant enough to matter. (That's just me, you be the judge).
Next, straddle the pencil across the top of a Mason jar, and add about an ounce of colloidal silver:
Then fill the jar to just below the clips, I use bottled distilled water:
when the jar is full, it should look just like this, be careful not to overfill, the water cannot touch the clips:
put it down on the counter, and wait about an hour and a half:
after about an hour and a half, your coins will look like this:
To clean them, I use a 3M green scrubber pad:
For a nice strong batch, I usually put the coins back in the same mixture twice, and after about an hour, it will have a slightly amber hue, but it will still be quite clear. When you are done, you can always check it with a laser pointer:
with practice, you will be able to determine the relative strength of your mixture. Because I start with a little bit of colloidal silver, the laser line is faint but noticeable, when I'm done, it is strong and bright.
After I've made multiple batches out of the same jar, the jar does have some sediment at the bottom, and although I usually just pour what's on top into a clean jar several times, eventually, I will use a filter if there's anything floating, or if I want to empty the jar. Sometimes I use a coffee filter, but I usually just use a piece of paper towel:
The black sediment on the bottom of the jar is stuck on pretty good, so I put a 3M scrubber inside the jar, and then use a pot scrubber inside it, to clean the bottom of the jar. Like this:
Although I have tried various power supplies, I have settled upon a 9 V 300 mA power supply that was once used to charge a “cordless phone” which has long since been disposed of. It looks like this:
Be absolutely sure not to use a cheap Chinese knockoff jar, only “Ball–Mason” jars will work. I discovered this in the past week when a batch got ruined by turning the whole jar black, and the mixture was just a dark cloud. Upon turning the jar over, I found it was made in China. Don't repeat this mistake.
Although the pictures don't show it, I usually cover the jar while brewing, with a paper towel.
Keeping any contamination out of the process is important.
The “finished product” can simply be drank right out of the jar. Here's how:
A couple of ounces a day never hurt anyone.
Legal disclaimer: This is for entertainment purposes only.
NanoSilver has UV light & oxidation (not air bubbles) used in the process and particle sizes are more consistent. High voltage, in excess of 8,000 volts is used on multiple electrodes in a circular fashion, taking a day for 10ppm and almost 3 days for over 20ppm. The increased voltage, number of electrodes and time add many more nano sized particles per 10ppm, upwards of 100,000-150,000 particles making its effectiveness 6 times more effective than normal colloidal silver. There are a couple other steps taken to boost the product's abilities.
Fix's pictures and outlined steps together with pictures make for a great way to develop your own home brew colloidal silver. I was convinced to use the commercial grade made by ABL, (though marketed by many other names), over producing my own by the kill time and percentage kill rate of the products. For example the newest Malaria test show a 98% kill time in an hour versus 2 days in 2002 tests. Storage life is been shown to be in excess of 8 years without noticeable diminished effectiveness in ABL's Nanosilver, if stored away from direct sunlight.
The first colloidal silver patent was issued in 1924 and expired after 17 years. The next couple patents were issued as described in the above previous post. To receive a patent one has substantially change the process and outcome. I"ve parapharsed, but you get the idea. If I couldn't get the commercial ABL Nanosilver grade, I would be making it as Fix outlines above.
Glad folks found the article as valuable as I did. That's one I'm confident to send to every one I know.
My colloidal silver is made almost identical with how Mr. Fix has done it, only with the exception that I took one of my 4 9's Canadian Maple and cut it in half with bolt cutters and am using a 12 vdc power supply (1 amp). I will probably stick with this solution, but may try a few 30 vdc experiments sometime in the future.
Mr. Fix had stated that boiling the water on a fresh batch of ionic silver, when you don't have a little "starter ionic silver" to add to get conductivity in the water and help get the process going, worked like a charm. It still took between 3 or 4 hours to really get things going for this first batch, confirmed with a small red laser.
So thanks for the details Mr. Fix. You had me making this stuff months before I came across the article.
PS. This site also has so much more to offer than just the ionic silver article. http://healthwyze.org
