Silver Ions is more effective in killing germs. Colloidal silver becomes toxic to microbes when it releases Silver Ions. In fact, U.S. Army Doctor R.D. Todd found in laboratory trials that Silver Ion is up to 10,000 times more effective than colloidal silver. Furthermore, in order for silver to have antimicrobial properties, it must be in its ionised form.
Silver is effective against Gram negative, Gram positive, anaerobic and aerobic bacteria, yeast, fungi and viruses. According to Dr LG Ovington’s article ‘The value of silver in wound management’, Silver Ions kill bacteria by disrupting the bacteria’s cell wall, causing it to rupture. Silver Ions are also bactericidal against nearly 150 strains of bacteria and common fungi.
An article by Science Mag, ‘Silver turns bacteria into deadly zombies’, reported on the ability of silver to stay in dead bacteria cells. According to the article, germs that are exposed to a microbe-slaying silver solution will “go zombie”, wiping out other living bacteria even after they die. This would explain silver’s long-lasting antibacterial power.
According to a study done by Charing Cross Hospital in London, Silver Ions are harmlessly flushed out of one’s body. Silver is absorbed into the human body and enters our system as a protein complex to be eliminated by the liver and kidneys.
Yes, it is a good water sanitiser or purifier. Julia Fahrenkamp-Uppenbrink from Science Mag found that silver ionisation is suitable for water disinfection.
No, Silver Ions do not kill human cells. According to the Journal of Microbiological Methods, most microbes have a negative electrical charge which maintains cell wall integrity, enabling them to survive. On the other hand, human cells do not have a cell wall but a plasma membrane. Silver Ions are positively charged. Hence, they work by disrupting the microbe’s ability to conduct electricity, disrupting the cell wall.
No, Silver Ions do not kill good bacteria as Silver Ion is water based. Our gastrointestinal tract is covered by a gel-like layer of mucus and good bacteria (microbiota) lives within this mucus. This protective mucus acts as a barrier to microbial threat and contributes to the health of the intestines. The mucus is also hydrophobic, which means it repels water.
The number of pathogens that are resistant to antibiotics is growing every day. The World Health Organisation (WHO) reports that there are superbugs located in every country. Fortunately, there is no antimicrobial resistance to Silver Ions. This is because Silver Ions immediately kill bacteria electrically, giving the bacteria no time to develop any form of resistance.
According to MD Herbert Slavin, Silver Ion is a powerful tissue-healing agent. For decades, it has been used in burn centres and represents one of the fastest growing sectors in wound care today.
