It is an open secret that the antimicrobial effect of Ionic Silver is recognized to be extremely broad spectrum when applied to viral, bacterial and fungal pathogens. Ionic Silver works by “choking” pathogens. When Silver Ions come into the proximity of harmful pathogens, they disrupt an enzyme that pathogens require in order to process oxygen properly. Without oxygen, the pathogens quickly die. Silver Ions kill harmful pathogens while leaving healthy tissue and cells untouched because cells that are natural to the body have a much thicker cell wall than pathogen related cells.
Ionic Silver is a solution of Silver (dissolved) and Water where a positively charged Silver Ion has attached itself electrostatically to a Water Molecule. Ionic Silver loses its veracity when combined with other liquids such as stomach acid because of its loose electrostatic bond, making it ineffective if consumed orally.
Ionic Silver kills Topical pathogens such that are found on skin or in the mouth. Our product contains two distinct species of Silver that reside in a common delivery mechanism, ultra- pure, de-ionized water. One species has an ionic bond with the water creating a transport agent for the other species which is composed of electrically isolated, like charged Pico Scalar Silver Islands with a high Zeta potential prompting a repelling force that maintains the species evenly dispersed throughout the transport matrix.
Zeta potential indicates the degree of repulsion between adjacent, similarly charged particles in a dispersion. For molecules and particles that are small enough, a high zeta potential will confer stability,i.e., the solution or dispersion will resist aggregation. When the potential is low, attraction exceeds repulsion and the dispersion will break and flocculate. So, colloids with high zeta potential (negative or positive) are electrically stabilized while colloids with low zeta potentials tend to coagulate or flocculate.Because our Silver Islands are Pico scalar, the aspect ratio of individual Silver islands combined are of an order of magnitude greater than current conventional products which tend to agglomerate and are sized in the high nanometre to micron range which hinders migration through the dermal layers.
