About Colloidal Silver
A powerful natural treatment
Colloidal Silver is a liquid made of nano sized silver particles, suspended in ultra-pure water. This natural product can help with a huge variety of health conditions in adults, children and animals. It’s known to be effective against 650 strains of bacteria, viruses and fungi, and is well-known for its skin healing properties if made correctly.
Colloidal Silver is also the key ingredient in our topical products which means we don’t have to use any nasty artificial preservatives or parabens, so you can rest assured our products are as natural and safe as they can be.
An ancient remedy
Silver as a natural treatment is nothing new. As far back as Ancient Greece, they used a silver coin in a barrel of water to stop bacteria growing. Since then, it has been used throughout the ages to fight infection, in everything from hospitals to water systems.
In the early 20th Century, colloidal silver was used by doctors as it proved enormously effective against bacteria. Its use declined after 1938 when antibiotics were introduced. However, not even 100 years on and we are seeing resistance to antibiotics, and since the 70s there has been a renewed interest in Colloidal Silver.
Nowadays, NASA uses a silver water system in its space shuttles, and many airlines use silver water filters. Silver is also used by hospitals in burns units and to dress wounds, as well as being used in public buildings in the UK to prevent Legionnaires disease and bacteria.

Using it today

“Once people discover our products, they find they can use them to help with so many things, and the products become a staple part of the family first aid kit.” Lucy Roberts, Managing Director, Active Silver
How does it work?
Like with anything in life, nature seeks to be balanced, or neutral. Our bodies contain both good and bad bacteria. ‘Good’ bacteria helps our bodies to function and provides a balance, having equal amounts of positive and negative electrical charges (ions).
‘Bad’ bacteria is unbalanced because it has more negative than positive ions. Each of the silver particles in our Colloidal Silver is positively charged using our advanced electrolysis technique. Once ingested or in contact with skin, these particles are attracted to the spare negative ions in ‘bad’ bacteria. The Colloidal Silver rips these negative ions away, causing the ‘bad’ bacteria to die. The silver is then cleared out of the body by the immune, lymphatic and elimination systems.
It's impossible for bacteria to build up a resistance to Colloidal Silver. Providing the right concentration and particle size has been used, the Colloidal Silver is rapidly absorbed into the upper gastrointestinal tract, leaving little to interact with the beneficial ‘good’ bacteria in our intestines.
Antibiotics kill the ‘good’ bacteria that is so vital for our gut. This, coupled with the growing resistance to modern antibiotics, encourages more people to turn to Colloidal Silver. Interestingly, Colloidal Silver actually helps to enhance the effectiveness of antibiotics too.

Ultra pure ingredients
We manufacture our Colloidal Silver using European Pharmaceutical grade water and the finest silver available, in the form of ingots from the Perth Mint (99.99% silver). Simply pure Silver together with pure water, nothing else, which is then filtered via our 9-stage purification system.

Easy and safe to use
Our Colloidal Silver is harmless and non-toxic. It can be used by humans and animals. We are happy to help with any questions about how to take it.
Our ingredients soak in fast with no sticky residue. For many of our topical products, the dream team of Aloe Vera Gel and Colloidal Silver work together to absorb through all skin layers, to help rapidly heal, soothe and reduce inflammation.
Unlike other metals such as lead, silver is not toxic to humans which is why it’s used in day-to-day life, such as silver coins and cutlery. It even occurs as a naturally occurring trace mineral in many natural foods, and it’s been used for thousands of years to support good health.
There is no regulation regarding the manufacturing processes for Colloidal Silver, and sadly there are some companies that have tarnished the reputation of this industry by trying to cut corners. Therefore, some health organisations have ruled that the product is both ineffective and potentially dangerous, which is why there is so much conflicting information out there.
At Active Silver, we put all our products through rigorous testing to ensure they are safe to use.
