Colloidal silver is small particles of metallic silver dispersed in a liquid medium and forming a colloidal solution of silver in the range from 1 nm to several microns. Medicinal properties of silver are known since time immemorial. The first historically reliable reference to the use of silver in the prevention of infectious diseases dates back to the 5th century. BC. The ancient Greek historian Herodotus (circa 484-425 BC) wrote about the use of the Great Water stored in silver vessels in the troops of the Persian king Cyrus II, thereby keeping it suitable for drinking in marching conditions for a long time. In the historical chronicles were information about the epidemic of gastrointestinal diseases, carried in 326 BC. During the trip to India, the troops of Alexander the Great. Most of the ordinary soldiers were sick, drinking water from the dishes. The commanders of the troops drank from the silver cups and cups and remained healthy.
In the early 1900s, silver was officially approved as an antibacterial antimicrobial agent. Until 1938, colloidal silver was used as a bactericidal preparation and disinfectant. Doctors used it as drops for inflammation of the eyes, various infections.
Particles of ions actively destroy bacteria in the environment, which leads to the destruction and destruction of bacterial cells. This is explained by the fact that the silver ion blocks the structure of sulfur in the membrane of bacterial cells. In addition, it acts as a catalyst that causes an oxidation reaction: the shape of the cellular enzyme (which is responsible for the oxygen entering the cell) changes. The result is the neutralization of bacteria.
Studies have confirmed that silver ions have an antimicrobial effect. A solution of colloidal silver ions has a greater antibacterial effect than a conventional silver ion solution. Antibacteride from a colloidal solution depends on the size of the components. The smaller the size, the greater the contact surface with water and the greater silver absorption in water.
