Silver was a commonly-used antimicrobial 100 odd years ago but receded from use with the advent of antibiotics which were cheap and abundant.
In recent years however, Colloidal Silver has seen a big come back in popularity because of the problems associated with antibiotic resistant bacteria and the fact that more and more people are seeking safer and more natural alternatives.
The problem with colloidal silver however is that it obviously contains metal, and this has been a concern to many health professionals.
All this has changed with the advances in the field of silver ion technology. Ionic Silver is rapidly making Colloidal Silver obsolete because it has all the antimicrobial properties of Colloidal Silver but without the metal.
HealthWest Pure Ionic Silver is specifically designed to entirely overcome the inherent limitations of colloidal silver technology and provide a pure Silver Ion solution with a built-in delivery mechanism to shield it from chloride and other salts in the body, enabling it to be delivered intact to where it is needed.
How does it work?
Microbial cells have a sophisticated internal electrical system that they use in all of their life processes.
Silver ions have the ability to disrupt this process, and to prevent these micro-organisms from conducting electricity.
This makes them unable to function and so they collapse and die.
The fact that silver ions are effective against a broad range of micro-organisms is well established and due to recent advances in the delivery of silver ions, together with the problems associated with antibiotics, are being used in a rapidly growing range of health and medical products.
In keeping with government health guidelines no therapeutic claims are made and no medical advice is offered. If you have a health problem we recommend seeking medical advice from your qualified health professional.
