1 - Silver has a long history of use to fight infections and antimicrobials by traditional medicine. The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has registered silver as a biocidal material since 1954, meaning it destroys living organisms such as bacteria, viruses, and fungi.
2 - Silver has been used by the Russian space Agency to purify drinking water for the Mir space station and the International Space Station. Silver nanoparticles have been shown to be non-toxic, without adverse effects, and to exhibit strong antimicrobial activity.
3 - Silver nanoparticles are currently being used in the treatment of burns and wounds, and in dental procedures to minimize the chance of infection. New technology has enabled silver tobe used in medical devices such as wound dressings, stents, catheters, bone prostheses, cardiac devices and surgical appliances.
4 - Silver nanoparticles have been studied and proven effective against drug resistant strains of Staphylococcus aureus or MRSA, Escherichia coli, and Streptococcus pyogenes. One of the best things about silver nanoparticles is that they demonstrate multiple modes of action against bacterial pathogens, thus there is a minimal chance of bacteria developing a resistance to silver.
5 - Recent studies have shown silver nanoparticles to have antiviral activity against influenza A (H1N1), HIV, hepatitis B, genital herpes, viral respiratory infections or pneumonia (typically in children), and smallpox.
Do you need any more reasons than these to have a bottle of silver in your home? Silver Shield with Aqua Sol Technology represents the latest in nanoparticle solutions, delivering 20 parts-per-million of pure immune support. It is non-toxic and poses no risk of heavy metal contamination, as the silver nanoparticles are eliminated from the body within 48 hours.
