What do we really know about the effects of colloidal silver? Some published medical studies and conclusions

The SilverCare department of MediTec Group holds equipment for production of silver immune boosting products of the highest quality. This top of the art technology results in a product second to none.

SilverLife® is in solution for meant for ingestion, spraying on skin and surfaces plus for water purification.

Use of the water solution of silver is mainly based on the fact that the human body consists of 70 % water and that water is the most important component in the body. To attain an optimally functioning body, high capacity immune boosting products are of supreme importance.

Anti-cancer effects of silver

Comparison of in vitro toxicity of silver ions and silver nanoparticles on human hepatoma cells.

Environ Toxicol. 2016 Jun;31(6):679-92. doi: 10.1002/tox.22081. Epub 2014 Nov 28. Vrček IV et al.

“Evaluation of oxidative stress markers demonstrating depletion of GSH, increased ROS production, and increased SOD activity, indicated that oxidative stress might contribute to the anti-cancer effects of ionic forms of silver.”

Silver has an antiviral mechanism

Silver nanoparticles inhibit hepatitis B virus replication.

Antivir Ther. 2008;13(2):253-62. Lu L1, Sun RW, Chen R, Hui CK, Ho CM, Luk JM, Lau GK, Che CM.

"Silver nanoparticles could inhibit the in vitro production of HBV RNA and extracellular virions. We hypothesize that the direct interaction between these nanoparticles and HBV double-stranded DNA or viral particles is responsible for their antiviral mechanism."

A novel clinical strategy for the prevention of influenza virus infection

Inhibitory effects of silver nanoparticles on H1N1 influenza A virus in vitro.

J Virol Methods. 2011 Dec;178(1-2):137-42. doi: 10.1016/j.jviromet.2011.09.003. Epub 2011 Sep 17. Xiang DX1, Chen Q, Pang L, Zheng CL.

"This study demonstrates that silver nanoparticles have anti-H1N1 influenza A virus activities. The inhibitory effects of silver nanoparticles on influenza A virus may be a novel clinical strategy for the prevention of influenza virus infection during the early dissemination stage of the virus."

Silver can be used to enhance the action of existing antibiotics

Silver enhances antibiotic activity against gram-negative bacteria.

Sci Transl Med. 2013 Jun 19;5(190):190ra81. doi: 10.1126/scitranslmed. 3006276. Morones-Ramirez JR, Winkler JA, Spina CS, Collins JJ.

"This work shows that silver can be used to enhance the action of existing antibiotics against Gram-negative bacteria, thus strengthening the antibiotic arsenal for fighting bacterial infections."

Silver 3 ppm anti-microbial anti-viral

Assessment of antimicrobial activity of nanosized Ag doped TiO(2) colloids.

World J Microbiol Biotechnol. 2012 Jul;28(7):2531-9. doi: 10.1007/s11274-012-1061-y. Epub 2012 May 8. Yaşa I, Lkhagvajav N, Koizhaiganova M, Celik E, Sarı O.

"It was found that the silver doped TiO(2) nanoparticles inhibited the growth and multiplication of the test microorganisms, including the fungus C. albicans. Antimicrobial activity was observed against all tested microorganisms at a very low concentration of 1.125-2.81 μg/ml of nano silver in 1-25 % Ag-TiO(2) solutions."

Silver in retinal eye therapies

Silver nano - a trove for retinal therapies.

J Control Release. 2010 Jul 14;145(2):76-90. doi: 10.1016/j.jconrel.2010.03.022. Epub 2010 Mar 29. Kalishwaralal K, Barathmanikanth S, Pandian SR, Deepak V, Gurunathan S.

"These constructs consequently affirm the futuristic application of silver nanoparticles as a boon to ocular therapies."

Silver helps wound healing

Topical Delivery of Silver Nanoparticles Promotes Wound Healing

ChemMedChem. 2007 Jan;2(1):129-36. Tian J, Wong KK, Ho CM, Lok CN, Yu WY, Che CM, Chiu JF, Tam PK.

"Furthermore, through quantitative PCR, immunohistochemistry, and proteomic studies, we showed that silver nanoparticles exert positive effects through their antimicrobial properties, reduction in wound inflammation, and modulation of fibrogenic cytokines. These results have given insight into the actions of silver and have provided a novel therapeutic direction for wound treatment in clinical practice."

Silver effective against fungi

Antifungal effect of silver nanoparticles on dermatophytes.

J Microbiol Biotechnol. 2008 Aug;18(8):1482-4. Kim KJ, Sung WS, Moon SK, Choi JS, Kim JG, Lee DG.

"Additionally, we investigated their effects on the dimorphism of Candida albicans. The results showed nano-Ag exerted activity on the mycelia. Thus, the present study indicates nano-Ag may have considerable antifungal activity, deserving further investigation for clinical applications."

Silver effect on E Coli

Antibacterial activity and mechanism of silver nanoparticles on Escherichia coli.

Appl Microbiol Biotechnol. 2010 Jan;85(4):1115-22. doi: 10.1007/s00253-009-2159-5. Epub 2009 Aug 11. Li WR, Xie XB, Shi QS, Zeng HY, Ou-Yang YS, Chen YB.

"When the cells of E. coli were exposed to 50 microg/ml SNPs, many pits and gaps were observed in bacterial cells by transmission electron microscopy and scanning electron microscopy, and the cell membrane was fragmentary, indicating the bacterial cells were damaged severely. After being exposed to 10 microg/ml SNPs, the membrane vesicles were dissolved and dispersed, and their membrane components became disorganized and scattered from their original ordered and close arrangement based on TEM observation. In conclusion, the combined results suggested that SNPs may damage the structure of bacterial cell membrane and depress the activity of some membranous enzymes, which cause E. coli bacteria to die eventually."
