The many benefits of Silver Ions are well documented and are freely available online. Read the articles below to find out more.
In our world of ever increasing information it is hard to keep up with new technology. One of our main problems is how many articles actually contain real scientific advancements and how many are just people out to make a quick buck. HealthWest Pure Ionic Silver is a new and exciting silver product that is backed by scientific evidence.
Silver Ion (Ag+) Formulations with Virucidal Efficacy against Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2)
Since the early 2000s, antibiotic resistance of microbes has been of increasing concern. This chapter describes the virucidal efficacy of a silver ion formulation and how it inactivates severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) and feline calicivirus (FeCV). Silver ion based formulations attack bacteria and viruses in multiple ways.and limit the chances of both viruses and bacteria to develop resistance to such formulations.
Dengue is a disease caused by four closely related viruses known as dengue virus -1 through -4 (DENV1-DENV4). DF is a disease that became prevalent in tropics during the great shipping industry expansion in the 18th and 19th centuries.
The zombie apocalypse may be more than just a horror story for some bacteria. New research shows that when exposed to a microbe-slaying silver solution, the germs can “go zombie,” wiping out their living compatriots even after death. The results may explain silver's long-lasting antibacterial power and could improve the performance of medical products that keep us safe from harmful pathogens.
The Effect of Charge at the Surface of Silver Nanoparticles on Antimicrobial Activity against Gram-Positive and Gram-Negative Bacteria: A Preliminary Study
Nanoparticles are known as particles with a size smaller than 100 nm. By reducing the particle size from the micrometre to the nanometre scale, almost all the physical, chemical, and biological characteristics of the materials (e.g., hardness, active surface area, and antibacterial activity) will be altered.
Silver has a long and intriguing history as an antibiotic in human health care. It has been developed for use in water purification, wound care, bone prostheses, reconstructive orthopaedic surgery, cardiac devices, catheters and surgical appliances. Advancing biotechnology has enabled incorporation of ionizable silver into fabrics for clinical use to reduce the risk of nosocomial infections and for personal hygiene.
A new technology of microdispersed silver in polyurethane induces antimicrobial activity in central venous catheters
Metal ions or metal ions in complexes or compounds have been used for centuries to disinfect fluids, solids and tissues. The biocidal effect of silver, with its broad spectrum of activity including bacterial, fungal and viral agents, is particularly well known and the term “oligodynamic activity” was coined for this phenomenon.
