How to use Colloidal Silver

As a guideline, use the following doses:

Daily Dose 5 ml 1.5 -2.5 ml
Treatment or Booster 15 – 30 ml 5 – 15 ml
Chronic Conditions 30 ml
up to 3x daily
7.5 – 15 ml
up to 3x daily

New Users: Start with 5-10 ml in the first 24 hours then increase to 30 ml daily for 5–7 days to boost silver levels and then decrease as required.

Oral Use: Keep the Colloidal Silver in your mouth for as long as possible (up to 30 seconds), swishing under the tongue before swallowing. This greatly helps with absorption.

Topical Use: Use on skin including damaged skin (rashes, burns, gashes, wounds, thrush, bites & stings etc). Apply via the bandage or spray, or submerge affected area 2-3 times a day. Use a dropper application for eyes and ears, or a spray one for nose and throat.

Infants & Children: Use ⅓ – ½ of the adult dose.

Active Silver Colloidal Silver ‘Magic’ Gel

Use on all skin conditions as often as you like. Apply using your finger or a cotton bud/dressing and smooth into the affected area.

For best results keep the Active Silver Magic Gel refrigerated or in a dark cool place. To increase effectiveness of the Magic Gel, you can also take the Colloidal Silver orally as described above.

Our Magic Gel is made with Active Silver’s Colloidal Silver, Aloe Vera and Vitamin E – that’s it!

Active Silver dosage for Animals and Birds

Give orally, add to food or to cooled boiled water (although it’s best not to dilute it) and in addition apply topically directly onto wound or dressing.

A daily dose of Active Silver is a great preventative and boosts the immune system which is especially good after an operation too.

See the below table as a guideline:

Guidelines by Animal Size
Daily Dose
Treatment / booster dose
Kittens/Puppies 1 – 2 ml 2 – 5 ml
Birds or fowl 2 ml (per bird) 2 – 5 ml
Cats/Small Dogs (under 10kg) 2 – 5ml 5 – 15 ml
Medium Animals (10 – 25 Kg) 5-15ml 15 – 30ml
Larger Animals/Horses (25 – 45 Kg+) 15 – 30ml 30 – 50ml

Further Recommendations for Active Silver:

We do not recommend you mix Active Silver Colloidal Silver with water from a tap as the chlorine content can oxidize the silver. Dilution is unnecessary as the product already contains a safe, low concentration of silver. However, it can be added to food, or added to cooled boiled or distilled water, or added to drinking water if you are going to be consuming it within an hour or so.

Side Effects: Active Silver has no known side effects or reactions with other medications and you cannot overdose, however it is advised you stick to the recommended dose.

Very few people are allergic or intolerant to silver, but if you have any concerns we suggest you try a patch test by applying a drop onto the skin. Redness could indicate intolerance.

Higher doses (>30ml): The rapid elimination of pathogens/bad cells may initially make you feel worse. Watch for mild skin rashes/irritations, which should clear up quickly and are an indication to slightly reduce the amount being used. The body rapidly eliminates any excess silver which is useful for urinary tract infections, so a slightly higher initial dose may be beneficial for these types of infections.

Storage:  Keep all Active Silver Products in a cool, dark place and out of reach of children. For best results, we recommend you keep the Active Silver Gel in the fridge.

If you take Active Silver for a specific ailment, after a while if it is effective, you will most probably naturally start taking it as a daily preventative.  A good reason to take it as a preventative is to ward off pathogens (bad cells). This is because it takes several days to permeate the whole body and in effect, become a second immune system.

Active Silver is Vegan friendly and we do not test on animals.

All our bottles and jars are made of glass and can be recycled.
