What is silver sol, what does it do and why is NSP the only place you can get it? Oh yeah, and why do I keep buying it?
Because I keep finding more uses for it that amaze me.
I've talked about using Silver Shield for all sorts of things on this website. Today I'm here to explain what it is, how it's different and what it's been tested to cure because the more I use it the more I love it.
Since I don't have a science background, it seems best to share a few excerpts from the book pictured above called, A Fighting Chance, How to Win the War Against Bacteria, Viruses and Mold With Silver by Dr. Gordon Pedersen; and below, under uses I'll use my book The Comprehensive Guide to Nature's Sunshine Products by Steven Horne.
Dr. Gordon Pederson says:
In essence, it is simply silver particles dispersed in purified water. The term Sol is a chemical designation of a pure mineral permanently suspended in water where the mineral's charge is transferred to the entire body of water. The Difference between preparations are plenty, however. The silver concentration and the size of the particles can vary greatly, as can the bioavailability of the silver and the effectiveness of the solution. There are also variances in the purity of the solution.
Solutions made with metallic silver are tested to be more potent than other silver preparations, I prefer the new silver technology called silver sol, or also called silver Aquasol technology.
Silver Sol preparations are manufactured by a completely different method, which in my opinion produces a far superior result. Silver sol technology uses 10,000 volts of Alternating Current (AC), while the old colloids use 110 volts of Direct Current (DC). This significant increase in power essentially supercharges the silver, which results in a solution that has a different atomic structure than the colloids and ionics. The common colloid is missing one electron in its outer shell, which is why it can remove an electron from the bacteria, destroying it.
In this way, colloids and ionic silvers have been very successful in destroying bacterial infections. Silver Sol is an Ag 404 which means that it is missing two electrons in its outer shell. This means that a Silver Sol has catalytic capabilities, Catalytic means that while one electron is destroying bacterial, viruses and mold, the other is being recharged.
This catalytic conversion allows the Silver Sol to destroy then instantaneously recharge and "kill" again and again - like a rapid fire machine gun. The result is that Silver Sol can destroy thousands of times more pathogens than a simple colloid or ionic silver. This means that Silver Sol can be much more effective at a very safe concentration (5-20 parts per million), which can be potentially consumed every day.
I'm beginning to think there are hundreds of uses for Silver Shield so I'll start with what I've used it for personally; what I've coached others to use it for (in conjunction with herbs); and then things it's been tested to cure as a germicide.
For both humans and dogs in my family. . .
Ear infections, eye infections, scratched cornea, wound cleaner, wound healer, nose spray (clears a stuffy nose faster than anything I've ever used), suspected food poisoning, diarrhea, colds, viruses, sunburns, bug bites and stings, intestinal and bowel inflammation and giardia. (Surely there's more but that's off the top of my head). Seriously, if I think anyone might be coming down with something, a dose can avert the whole problem.
When helping other people's dogs, it plays a major role in IBD, IBS, giardia, heartworm, coccidia , lyme disease prevention, pancreatitis, yeast infections and whenever there is inflammation or nasty bacteria.
The list in my book is long, so here are some highlights by Steven Horne:
Abrasions, abscesses, acne, appendicitis, athlete's foot, bladder infection, blisters, burns and scalds, chicken pox, cholera, cold sores, colds, contagious diseases, dysentery, gingivitis, herpes, flu, Lyme disease, malaria, measles, mumps, rheumatic fever, sinus infection staph infections, strep throat, tetanus, urinary tract infection and vaginitis.
Silver Shield (Silver Sol) has been found to be both bacteriostatic and bactericidal for all gram-negative and gram-positive organisms tested in patients and in the lab, including emerging resistant strains.
Oh, and less I forget, it purifies water too.

I usually buy the 16 oz bottle but now they have a 32 oz bottle of Silver Shield that's even more cost effective. (Simply join as a member for free at checkout and get the discounted price.) It also comes in a gel which you should see when scrolling down the page in the link.
Just so you're aware, if you spend $100 or more at one time, you get an additional 10% rebate so you're looking at a total of 40% off retail. Cool huh?

Fun Tidbit: Do you that old saying about being born with a silver spoon in the mouth? The thought is since we've known silver kills bacteria for a few hundred years, keeping foods in silver containers and eating with silver utensils helped keep us well.
