News From The American Redoubt:

Anyone looking for colloidal silver should check out this small company in Montana: Ion Silver. Their product is made with a special process that puts very small (“ionic”) silver particles in suspension, and that unlike their competitors, their solutions don’t “go brown” with silver dropping out of solution.

  1. You do not want ionic silver solution. Ionic is a chemical reaction. You want the silver in solution to remain as silver. A colloid is the smallest particle that will remain as silver in a solution. A colloid creates the maximum surface area. DocFont

    1. There is considerable discussion and controversy regarding whether ionic silver or particulate (colloidal) silver is more efficacious. This has been discussed on the silver-list by many of the members; some of them having chemistry and/or medical backgrounds. It is claimed by MesoSilver that colloids are more effective at killing pathogens. Their product is about 90% colloidal while most ionic/colloidal silver is typically 75-95% ionic. They claim that ionic silver is converted to silver chloride in the stomach by coming in contact with hydrochloric acid, thereby becoming ineffective.

      The company Natural Immunogenics, manufacturer of Argentyn 23 claims the ionic portion is more effective at killing pathogens. Their product is about 95% ionic. In order to resolve the dispute Natural Immunogenics performed kill studies using a controlled comparison that diluted both MesoSilver and Argentyn 23 with hydrochloric acid to neutralize the ions in MesoSilver. Then the two were diluted to 20 PPM each so the comparison would have validity. They then combined the remaining fractions of Mesosilver and Argentyn with two strains of Staphylococcus Aureus. The dilutions were placed on petri plates and graded as to their effectiveness in killing the pathogens.

      Please see the test results here. Look near the bottom right side of the report for the in vitro kill rates. This should resolve the issue. It seems clear the ionic portion is more effective at killing pathogens.

      Also see for considerably more information regarding ionic and colloidal silver.

      It should be noted that the silver water produced with SilverGen generators is approximately 85-98+% ionic and the balance is colloidal. So, no matter who you think is right, the water contains enough of each form of silver to be effective.

      Hope this helps
