Special Report: How the New Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator Differs From Conventional Colloidal Silver Generators

The new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator represents a bona fide breakthrough in colloidal silver-making technology. The main difference between the new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver generator and standard colloidal silver generators is particle size. While standard colloidal silver generators produce silver particles that can be so large the human body has great difficulty absorbing and utilizing them, the new Micro-Particle Home Colloidal Silver Generator produces highly bio-available silver particles as low as .0008 microns so small, they are about as close to being "dissolved" silver particles as you can get.

In the past, there have been only a few ways to achieve the production of silver micro-particles. These methods have proven to be expensive and time-consuming, requiring the use of equipment found only in professional laboratories. Colloidal silver manufacturers basically have to make batches of standard colloidal silver through a high-voltage process utilizing upwards of 10,000 volts, and then use expensive laboratory equipment to extract the particles from the solution and separate the larger from the smaller particles before reconstituting the smaller silver particles back into solution. Some colloidal silver manufacturers used a sophisticated centrifuge technology to achieve this. Others have used more conventional laboratory forms of separation such as filtration. There is also a `chemical milling' variation, where larger colloids are reduced in size with an acid bath. This is why commercial bottled colloidal silver products that truly contain micro-particles of silver are always very expensive to purchase as much as $59 for a tiny 8-ounce bottle.

On the other hand, thanks to an astonishing new breakthrough in colloidal silver-making technology, the new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator allows you to produce true micro-particle colloidal silver -- quickly and easily, in the comfort and privacy of your own home -- for about 36 cents a quart!.

Creating sub-microscopic silver micro-particles with a standard low-voltage DC-current colloidal silver generator was initially thought to be impossible. But what a bright electrical engineer named Paul Johnson discovered several years ago was the fact that you can do so, if you utilize a slower and more stable rate of silver particle production than what is normally used, while simultaneously eliminating excessive electrical conductivity in the water during the entire colloidal silver-making process. To accomplish this, you must be able to achieve five specific goals:

  • One, you must start the colloidal silver-making process with virtually mineral-free, non-conductive water, which means using pure, high-quality steam-distilled water only.

  • Two, you must be able to slow the rate of silver particle production by significantly reducing the generator's voltage-to-amperage ratio;

  • Three, you must be able to prevent the agglomeration (i.e., bonding) of silver particles into larger particles by constantly aerating and agitating the water (i.e., bubbling).

  • Four, you must be able to prevent the "bridging" of silver particles between the two silver electrodes.

  • And five, you must be able to dramatically limit the buildup of electrical conductivity within the solution during the entire colloidal silver-making process.
Here is how the new Micro-Particle Home Colloidal Silver Generator achieves these five specific goals, with the result that true colloidal silver micro-particles as low as .0008 microns in size can now be produced with a simple, easy-to-operate, low-voltage DC-current colloidal silver generator:

Built-in water resistance tester for making sure your water is non-conductive enough to produce silver micro-particles -- The built-in water resistance tester in the new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator allows you to know immediately whether the water you are using is superior non-conductive steam-distilled water, or inferior mineral-laden and highly-conductive water. If, at the very start of the colloidal silver-making process the green light on the Micro-Particle Generator box glows brightly, then the water is too highly mineralized (i.e., too conductive) for making silver micro-particles. If the green light on the box glows only dimly or even not at all, then you can rest assured that the water has low-to-no mineral content (i.e., extremely low conductivity) and is thus perfect for making silver micro-particles. In short, the built-in water resistance tester allows you to know right from the start whether or not the distilled water you are using is of a sufficiently high-quality to produce silver micro-particles. To our knowledge, no other colloidal silver generator on the market today provides you with this crucial benefit

Slower rate of production One of the most overlooked rules of making high-quality colloidal silver is that the faster your unit produces silver particles, the larger they will tend to be. Most standard colloidal silver generators are calibrated for greater speed of colloidal silver production, rather than for smaller particle size. The significantly higher voltage-to-amperage ratio used in standard colloidal silver generators literally "blows" chunks of silver off the positive silver electrode, rather than allowing very tiny particles to slowly trickle off. This automatically produces silver particles that are frequently too large for the human body to properly utilize. What's more, as these larger silver particles accumulate in the solution during the colloidal silver-making process, they vastly increase the electrical conductivity of the solution. This in turn increases the speed at which silver particles leave the positive silver electrode, which results in even larger silver particles entering the solution. In other words, it is a vicious cycle of ever increasing particle size. This is why the new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator utilizes a significantly longer running time (3 hrs.) for colloidal silver production, at a fraction of the voltage-to-amperage ratio used by the manufacturers of most standard colloidal silver generators. By dramatically reducing the voltage-to-amperage ratio, the silver particles merely trickle off the positive silver electrode at a much slower rate and at a dramatically smaller particle size right from the start. And they stay that way throughout the entire three-hour colloidal silver making process!

Built-in aerator (i.e., bubbler) -- The built-in aerator keeps the water fully aerated and agitated during the entire colloidal-silver making process. This has a very important three-fold purpose: First, the constant aeration and agitation of the water during the entire colloidal silver-making process helps prevent the agglomeration (i.e., bonding) of silver particles as they leave the positive silver electrode. With standard colloidal silver generators, the silver particles tend to accumulate in the water not far from the positive silver electrode, because there is no agitation of the water to cause their wider dispersal. From the very outset of the colloidal silver-making process this fosters particle agglomeration (i.e., the formation of larger silver particles through particle bonding). But with the new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator, the silver particles are immediately dispersed into wide circulation within the solution by the bubbling action of the built-in aerator. This makes it virtually impossible for silver particles to accumulate near the positive silver electrode and form larger particle agglomerates. Once the individual silver particles are dispersed throughout the solution, the positive electrical charge they carry becomes dominant, and they go into Brownian motion. In other words, from that point forward they are able to repel each other and remain suspended in the solution indefinitely without agglomerating!

Secondly, the constant aeration of the water helps break up the electrical "bridging" that always takes place between the positive and negative silver electrodes. "Bridging" simply means that silver particles tend to get caught in the electrical interplay between the two silver electrodes, and accumulate there, forming larger particle agglomerates that are difficult for the body to utilize. This is one of the biggest problems with standard colloidal silver generators. But the Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator solves this problem completely by aerating and agitating the water constantly during the entire colloidal silver-making process. The "bridging" between the two silver electrodes is thereby broken up completely, and the resulting particle agglomeration is eliminated. While some manufacturers of colloidal silver generators utilize a clumsy motorized stirring mechanism to accomplish this, no other colloidal silver generator we know of does so as efficiently and effectively as the new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator, with its' built in aerator.

Third, the constant aeration of the water prevents excessive electrolysis from building up in the solution. This is important, because when using a standard colloidal silver generator, the electrical conductivity of the entire colloidal silver solution is increased dramatically as more silver particles enter the water. In turn, this increased electrical conductivity causes additional silver particles to be drawn from the positive silver electrode at a faster rate and at a significantly larger size. But because the new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator keeps the entire colloidal silver solution super-aerated during the colloidal-silver making process, the buildup of excessive electrical conductivity is dramatically mitigated. Why? Because air is one of nature's least conductive elements. Super-aerating the water prevents excessive electrical conductivity from building up, which in turn prevents additional silver particles from being drawn from the positive silver electrode at an excessively fast rate that results in excessively large particles. Only the new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator offers you this highly beneficial innovation!

A Brief Word About "Constant Current" Regulators

Some colloidal silver generator manufacturers attempt to resolve the problem of electrolytic buildup in the colloidal silver solution by adding a complex piece of computer technology called a "constant current regulator" to their generators. This technology monitors the buildup of electrical conductivity in the colloidal silver solution, and concurrently reduces the generator's electrical current as electrolysis builds up in the solution. This works pretty good, to a certain extent. But it is an overly-complex technological solution to a very simple problem. By simply aerating the water to help prevent the buildup of excessive electrical conductivity, you altogether eliminate the need for complex computer technology in a colloidal silver generator. What's more, when someone adds relatively complex computer technology to a colloidal silver generator, the customer always ends up with one more highly sensitive electronic component that could burn out, short out, or otherwise go bad, and you'd never know it was not working. On the other hand, with the new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator, if the aeration goes out you know it immediately, because the bubbling will stop. In short, with the new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator you never have to worry about whether or not sensitive computer equipment has shorted out or is otherwise not working correctly due to moisture, overheating, power surges, being bumped or dropped, or for some other reason. With "constant current" generators, you are simply going by faith that everything is still working correctly. But with the new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator, if something goes wrong (and it rarely does), you will know it immediately, and we will fix it. Ours is a simple yet elegant solution to the problem of electrolytic buildup. Best of all, the aeration technology employed in the new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator keeps the silver particles uncommonly small throughout the entire colloidal silver-making process. You don't get progressively larger silver particles during the colloidal silver-making process, because the aeration suppresses excessive electrical conductivity throughout the entire process.

While there are other factors that make the new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator superior to standard colloidal silver generators, the above-described factors are the most important ones.


Colloidal science has come a long way in the past few decades. Perhaps the most important area of study has been with the "phase transition" of colloids. Phase transition is a term used to describe how colloidal particles can self-assemble into a variety of ordered phases. Simply put, it is the ability to form `complex ions' that can successfully interact with cellular membranes in the human body. The study of colloidal phase transitions is currently an area of intensive scientific research. One reason for all the hoopla is because of a better understanding of the molecular architecture of -- and biochemical processes within -- cellular membranes.

Cellular membranes play important roles in all living organisms. One can think of a cellular membrane as a door with a lock. In order for a substance to pass or interact with the membrane, it needs a key. The mechanism (key) that controls this is the molecular architecture of the particular substance. If the key fits, the substance can pass or interact. This area of study has lead to the development of more potent and effective pharmaceuticals, for example.

Silver (Ag) is known as a `transition element'. This means it has good phase transition characteristics, because of its ability to form stable complex ions. This gives silver the "potential" to interact with cellular membranes in the same way as other important complex ions such as vitamin B-12, chlorophyll, and the heme component of hemoglobin, in which the central metal ions are cobalt, magnesium, and iron. All of these, and many other important nutrients, are complex ions. However, in order for a silver particle to be as freely interactive in the body as a natural complex ion like vitamin B-12, it must have the same characteristics as B-12. Meaning it must be very small (nanoparticle) and have a stable electric charge. These are the fundamental principles on which the new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator was designed.

The patent-pending Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator is a true nano-particle colloid system. A nano-particle (aka micro-particle) colloid system is any process that produces ultra-small colloids, less than 1 nm or .001 microns, with a stable electrical charge. While most colloidal silver generators cannot meet that standard, the new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator far surpasses that standard by producing silver particles as low as .0008 microns in size, and leaving them with a strong and stable electrical charge. What's more, the electrical charge on the tiny silver micro-particles is so strong, the silver remains in suspension in solution indefinitely. Most other colloidal silver generators produce significantly larger silver particles that hold a comparatively weak electrical charge. This leaves the silver particles "precipitating," or falling out of suspension in the solution within a matter of weeks or months at most.

In short, the new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator simply cannot be matched by standard colloidal silver generators. We hope this adds to your understanding of what makes the Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator so much more beneficial than the standard colloidal silver generators being sold today.

“I'm often asked which colloidal silver generator I recommend. Hands down, I recommend the Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from my friend Steve Barwick at Silver Edge…I've touted the benefits of pure micro-particle colloidal silver for years to anyone that would listen. Frankly, it's the best way I know to quickly heal cuts, scrapes, sores and burns... treat a host of common illnesses such as colds, flus and sore throats... as well as kill nasty germs on cutting boards, kitchen counters, tooth brushes and even your pet's water bowl. But most importantly is how it can protect you from the deadly pathogen MRSA that has become resistant to almost all known prescription antibiotics. Having a colloidal silver generator as part of your first aid kit just makes sense... especially if you ever find yourself in an emergency with no access to a doctor or hospital.”

-- Michael Cutler, M.D., Editor, Easy Health Options

"I believe the folks at The Silver Edge are the reigning experts on colloidal silver. Nowhere else will you find more accurate information on how to use colloidal silver to protect yourself and your family..."

-- Bob Livingston, The Bob Livingston Letter

"Thanks for all your brilliant work to educate people about colloidal silver. It is one of nature’s wonders that helps keep us well."

-- Dr. Keith Scott-Mumby, M.D., MBChB, PhD, author Cancer Research Secrets, Complete Parasites Handbook, and Survive Without Antibiotics

"Hi Steve: I have been a supporter of your work for nearly 15 years, and I have used Colloidal Silver for over 30 years without a single problem, EVER! I have cleared up feline herpes in a cat's eyes, and have prevented infection from countless cuts, post surgery, for other injuries sustained during daily life. It is the safest and best antibiotic, anti-fungal, anti-viral that I have ever used, as opposed to the pricey, worthless, side effects loaded junk that the pharmaceutical companies promote. Read the labels for the antibiotics and other "medications" prescribed by physicians, in good, albeit ignorant, faith, and you will find horror abounding in devastating diseases that they can cause you, including death. So, if anyone has any doubt about using natural Colloidal Silver in place of chemicals, think again. This works, with zero side effects."

-- Dr. Kathleen Olsson Nelson, RN, BA, MA, PhD, PhD, FSNPM, FCH., Clinical Psychologist and Nutritional Consultant

“The bottom line is that for colloidal silver to effectively fight pathogens, you must use micro-particle silver rather than conventional colloidal silver or silver protein products… You can actually make your own micro-particle colloidal silver in your own home. In fact, there’s one colloidal silver generator on the market today -- the Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from a company called The Silver Edge -- that will make colloidal silver with such uncommonly small silver particles, it requires a multi-million dollar Transmission Electron Microscope operating at 175,000x magnification just to see them. This generator allows you to make the most powerful, and highly bioavailable form of colloidal silver right in your own home. And you can make it for pennies…Having a Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator on hand allows you to protect your entire family – and probably your friends and neighbors as well – for just pennies.”

-- Donald S. McAlvany, The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor, October 2013

“I'm so happy I own a Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver generator. No one should be without this wonderful device. I so very much appreciate you sharing your knowledge about colloidal silver.”
