Silver: Nature’s Efficient Carrier of Nascent Oxygen
There are three known ways antimicrobial silver products such as colloidal silver kills infectious microorganisms.
Foremost among them is silver’s unique ability to carry pure nascent oxygen, and release it in the presence of pathogens thereby causing a chemical reaction called oxidation, which destroys them.
In the short article below you’ll learn more about silver’s amazing capacity to carry oxygen and release it in an “oxygen burst” in the presence of pathogens, and why this makes silver one of nature’s most efficient and effective infection-fighting agents.
Hi, Steve Barwick here, for www.TheSilverEdge.com...
Control of Microorganisms in Drinking Water Using Ag-Cu/C
Catalysts, which was Indian Institute of Chemical Technology in conjunction with researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in New York, draws a similar conclusion:
“Silver in its atomic state, has the capacity to absorb oxygen and act as a catalyst to bring about oxidation.
Because oxygen is more electronegative than sulfur, atomic (nascent) oxygen absorbed onto the surface of silver particles in solution will readily react with hydrogen attached to sulfur in the sulfhydryl (- S- H) groups surrounding the surface of bacteria or viruses.
The removal of hydrogen atoms (as water) causes the sulfur atoms to condense to form R- S –S- R bond. This blocks the respiration and causing the bacteria to expire.”
impairing cell respiration by blocking its energy transfer system, and by binding with bacterial and viral DNA, thus preventing replication of the pathogens
Dr. Stephen West, DL, PMD (son of Dr. C. Samuel West, DN, ND, renowned chemist and internationally recognized lymphologist), concludes, “Silver ions stimulate the lymphatic system by cleaning out the dead cells and bringing oxygen to the healthy cells.”
While this is a complex biological process involving the body’s Reticuloendothelial System (also known as RES) – a subset of the lymphatic system – it can be explained in layman’s terms. As I wrote in my book, The Ultimate Colloidal Silver Manual, which is now the world’s bestselling book on colloidal silver:
“Lymph fluid is very sensitive to pH changes, and if it becomes too acidic, fungi and bacteria spontaneously develop and grow. To prevent this from happening, excessive acidic waste is removed from the body via the Reticuloendothelial System (RES), which can be thought of as a subset of the lymphatic system.
The RES is an essential part of the lymphatic system, comprised of the thymus, bone marrow and lymphoid tissues. It’s basically a storage, exchange and elimination system that helps the body remove acidic waste and toxins.
Sometimes the RES can be overwhelmed with toxins and acidic waste. This is another way in which silver ions are believed to support the immune system. Not only do silver ions have proven antimicrobial properties to fight the fungi and bacteria growth in the lymph fluid, silver ions also carry nascent oxygen on their surface. When the silver attacks a microorganism, this oxygen is released.
This can aid the RES in two ways; 1) extra oxygen helps restore the natural pH of the lymph fluid and 2) oxygen helps oxidize toxic waste. Any leftover oxygen would eventually be picked up by the hemoglobin in red blood cells and thus becomes available for other oxygen dependent needs in the body such as cellular respiration.
RES is also responsible for stimulating the immune response, thus protecting the body from foreign substances and pathogenic organisms.
It should be noted that while white blood cells can destroy cancer cells, viruses, bacteria and other pathogens, if there is excess fluid built up in the tissue (failure of RES) and/or a lack of oxygen, white blood cells cannot function properly!
This is another very important way in which silver ions are believed to support the lymphatic system, simply by providing additional oxygen to live cells and helping to oxidize dead cells.”
Highly Oxygen-Charged, Submicroscopic Silver Particles
While virtually all colloidal silver products are effective to one degree or another, it should be obvious that the most effective ones would be those in which the tiny, sub-microscopic silver particles are highly charged with oxygen.
But very few colloidal silver manufacturers bother to take steps to increase the amount of oxygen being carried by the silver particles in their products.
Indeed, in many cases, the production methods used to manufacture colloidal silver actually dramatically limit the amount of oxygen available to be adsorbed by the silver. That’s because most colloidal silver manufacturers use a closed-system manufacturing process designed to keep air out while the colloidal silver is being generated. Some even brag about using such a closed system…why I’ll probably never understand!
On the other hand, the new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from TheSilverEdge.com is specifically designed to dramatically boost the oxygen content of the colloidal silver as it’s being made.
Unlike conventional colloidal silver generators, the Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator includes a built-in bubbler mechanism that constantly bubbles air into the solution during the entire colloidal silver-making process.
This robust bubbling action dramatically reduces the buildup of electrolysis during the colloidal silver-making process, thus preventing the silver particles from bonding into larger particle agglomerates.
This means you get the tiniest, sub-microscopic silver particles possible in every batch.
But perhaps more importantly, the bubbling action also infuses the tiny, sub-microscopic silver particles with the highest charge of oxygen possible.
The result? Well, you can read the oft-time astonishing results for yourself on the Testimonials page at TheSilverEdge.com web site.
The Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from TheSilveredge.com allows you to make all of the colloidal silver you could ever need, quickly and easily, in the comfort and privacy of your own home, for less than 36 cents a quart!
No wonder it’s been the #1 bestselling colloidal silver generator in the world for ten years running!
Yours for the safe, sane and responsible use of colloidal silver,
