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 at least 30 seconds (or as long as possible), 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). Either apply via bandage, spray or submerge affected area 2-3 times a day. Use dropper application into eyes and ears, or spray for nose and throat.

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

Active Silver Colloidal Silver Gel

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

For best results keep the Active Silver Gel refrigerated. To increase effectiveness the Gel is best used in conjunction with the Active Silver solution. Take the solution orally and then also apply onto the skin before using the Gel.

Our Gel is made with Active Silver’s Colloidal Silver, Aloe Vera and Vitamin E.

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.

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:

It’s best not to mix Active Silver Colloidal Silver with water from a tap as the chlorine content can oxidise the silver. Dilution is not recommended 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.

Active Silver has no known side effects or reaction with other medications and one cannot overdose, however it’s advised you stick to the recommended dose.

Very few people are allergic or intolerant to silver, but if you have any concerns do a patch test by applying a drop onto the skin. Redness could indicate an 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 an indication the amount used should be slightly reduced. However, the body rapidly eliminates 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 Active Silver in a cool, dark place and out of reach of children. We recommend you keep the Active Silver Gel in the fridge for best results.

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.
