Also to know is, does silver really kill bacteria?

Silver kills germs when it oxidizes and releases silver ions, which are lethal to bacteria and yeast. Nanoparticles of silver, which can occur naturally, are more powerful than bigger particles because their large surface area relative to their mass increases the number of ions released.

One may also ask, how does silver ion kill bacteria? Silver ions perform their deadly work by punching holes in bacterial membranes and wreaking havoc once inside. They bind to essential cell components like DNA, preventing the bacteria from performing even their most basic functions. Then, they carefully separated the dead bacteria from the silver solution.

Consequently, does Silver kill bacteria and viruses?

Our colloidal silver contains 99.99% pure silver particles suspended indefinitely in demineralized water that kills bacteria and viruses. The presence of colloidal silver near a virus, fungi, bacterium or any other single celled pathogen disables its oxygen-metabolism enzyme, its chemical lung, so to say.

Is micro silver safe?

Additionally, Micro Silver conjoins with the skin's proteins, and the silver ions remain in the upper dermal layers of the skin where they are neutralized – making it perfectly safe for topical application.
