Reason #7 to Make Your Own Colloidal Silver: You’ll Always Be Able to Produce The Superior Ionic Form of Colloidal Silver!

It has recently become quite a fad among many commercial colloidal silver vendors to sell silver particulates, which are also known as “metallic” colloidal silver or “particulate” colloidal silver.


These vendors frequently use the patently false claim that particulate silver is the only “true” colloidal silver in existence, and that it is superior to ionic colloidal silver in every way.


Of course, nothing could be further from the truth.


Indeed, the particulate form of colloidal silver, while faddishly popular thanks to the marketing hyperbole that goes along with it, has in reality been demonstrated to be one of the weakest forms of colloidal silver available, particularly in terms of microbial killing power.


Keep in mind that colloidal silver has been around since Edison harnessed electricity in the late 1800’s. And many hundreds of tests and studies on colloidal silver have been conducted over the past eleven decades by legitimate laboratories, well-known research facilities, hospitals, major university medical departments, and even by the U.S. military and the U.S. government.


And to my knowledge, no one…and I repeat, no one…has found particulate colloidal silver to be superior to ionic silver, except for the internet promoters who constantly claim their bottled particulate colloidal silver products are superior to all others.


Isn’t that interesting?


In the newly updated, 547-page edition of my book, The Ultimate Colloidal Silver Manual I list over 158 different medical studies conducted over the past thirty years demonstrating the incredible effectiveness of the ionic form of colloidal silver. These include studies by the U.S. Army Burn Center, major medical universities, famous scientists, respected doctors, and more.


But the only studies I’ve been able to find on the so-called particulate form of colloidal silver have been the one’s conducted by a single, supposedly “independent” laboratory that, upon further examination, turns out to be owned by the main company that manufactures and sells the particulate form of silver.


That’s hardly what I’d call “independent.”


On the other hand, a respected company called Natural Immunogenics recently hired scientists to test the two forms of colloidal silver -- ionic v/s particulate – against each other using stringent FDA testing standards.


The results were astonishing.


In these tests, the ionic form of colloidal silver was demonstrated to be up to 1,000 times more effective than the particulate form when tested against pathogenic microorganisms.


The study showed that virtually all claims of effectiveness made for the particulate form were the exact opposite of the truth. Far from being more effective, the particulate form of colloidal silver turned out to be a small fraction as effective as the ionic form.


While these results shocked some people, they should not have been surprising. After all, when Dr. Robert O. Becker, M.D. did his groundbreaking work at Syracuse Medical University on the infection-fighting and tissue-regenerating power of electrically generated silver in the 1970’s and ‘80’s, it was the ionic form he used.


If you read his two New York Times bestselling books, The Body Electric and Cross Currents, you’ll see that he constantly refers to the silver ion as being the major infection-fighting and tissue-regenerating factor in all of his well-known medical studies.


What’s more, Albert T. McManus, MD, the Chief of Microbiology at the U.S. Army Burn Center, which is operated by the United States Army Institute of Surgical Research, states forthrightly regarding silver’s ability to prevent infections in burn patients, “…conversion of silver to silver ions is necessary for efficacy”.


In short, it is the silver ion that produces the microbial “killing power” of colloidal silver.


And the good news is this: When you make your own colloidal silver with a high-quality colloidal silver generator you will always get the ionic form of colloidal silver.


So don’t let commercial colloidal silver vendors lead you down Primrose Lane with their marketing hyperbole.


When you make your own colloidal silver with a high-quality generator, you are producing the same type of colloidal silver proven over and over again in medical studies to be the most effective!

Meet Steve Barwick


“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.”

-- Gary C. King, best-selling author of Blood Lust: Portrait of a Serial Killer and other true crime books and stories
