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 up 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. A daily dose of Colloidal Silver can be a great preventative and supports the immune system. 
Infants & Children: Use ⅓ – ½ of the adult dose.

Topical Use: You can use Colloidal Silver on skin including damaged skin (rashes, burns, gashes, wounds, thrush, bites & stings etc). Apply directly or via a bandage, 2-3 times a day. Use a dropper application for eyes and ears, or a spray one for nose and throat. 
There are lots of products that are more effective for topical use, see our Skin Care product pages.

Colloidal Silver 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, however there are some other products that are more effective for topical application, see our Animal Care products.

Dilution is unnecessary as the product already contains a safe 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. We do not recommend you mix Active Silver Colloidal Silver with water from a tap as the chlorine content can oxidize the silver.

If you use Active Silver products for a specific ailment, once it's under control, you can lower the dose/amount and use Active Silver Products daily as a preventative. 

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 or gold, 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 products in the fridge but this is not essential.
