Difference between ionic silver and colloidal silver.

Colloidal silver is silver particles in water. These silver particles must be larger than 1 atom and smaller than 100,000 nanometers. In that case it is called colloidal.

Ionic silver is silver ions dissolved in water. This is the reason why ionic silver water is colorless. It looks like ordinary water.

A silver ion is a silver atom that lacks an electron. These are, in principle, unstable products because they are not complete. The silver ions will therefore always strive for balance and look for something that makes them complete. Chlorine is a substance that silver ions like. They immediately enter into a compound to form silver chloride (AgCl).


Both ionic silver and colloidal silver products have the same effect on the skin as long as there is no chlorine in the area.

With intake it is different. Because chlorine is present in the stomach and in the body, the ionic silver will immediately form a connection with chlorine and thus form silver chloride (AgCl).

The effect of silver chloride therefore has no resemblance to the effect of silver. Just as every connection has a property / effect that has no resemblance to the property / effect of the individual elements that make it up.


Water (H2O) consists of Hydrogen (H) and Oxygen (O). The properties of water have no resemblance at all to the properties of the hydrogen and oxygen gases. For example, the effect of silver chloride in the body has no resemblance to the effect of pure silver.


Recently published article (2015) in Molecules ISSN 1420-3049 page 8856 -8874 where it is clearly proven that colloidal silver with a diameter of less than 30 nm works most effectively.
