Silver (Ag) 100ppm
Acts as anti-bacterial,
anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-microbial
Cleans with anti-septic
from igneous rocks and sedimentary rocks and is found at the rate of
0.07ppm in rocks and in soils at the rate of 0. 1 ppm; fresh water at
0.000 13 ppm; sea water at 0.0003 ppm; marine algae at 0.25 ppm; land
plants from 0.06 ppm to 1.4 ppm in accumulator plants growing near
silver ore. Epiogonum ovalifolium is a silver indicator plant. Silver is
found at 3.0 to 11.0 ppm in marine animals; in land mammals generally
0.05 to 0. 7 ppm; muscle at 0. 16 to 0.8 PPM and tortoise shell at 0.05
Silver has been
employed in human health care and in the search for immortality since
the days of the Chinese alchemist 8,000 years ago. Many feel that silver
is in fact an essential element, not because it is required for an
enzyme system, but rather as a systemic disinfectant and immune system
Sir Malcolm Morris
reported in the British Medical Journal (May 12,1917) that water soluble
silver is "free from the drawbacks of other preparations of silver, viz.
pain caused and discoloration of the skin; indeed, instead of producing
irritation it has a distinctly soothing effect. It rapidly subdues
inflammation and promotes healing of the lesions, it can be used with
remarkable results in enlarged prostate with irritation of the bladder,
in pruritis ani and perineal eczema, and in hemorrhoids."
reported in the British Medical Journal (December 15, 1917) that,
"colloidal silver has been found to be beneficial for permanently
restoring the patency of the Eustachian tubes and for reducing
nasopharyngeal catarrh. Colloidal silver has also been used successfully
in septic conditions of the mouth (including pyorrhea alveolysis -
Rigg's disease), throat (including tonsillitis and quincies), ear
(including Menier's symptoms and closure to Valsalva's inflation), and
in generalized septicemia, leucorrhea, cystitis, whooping cough and
water-soluble silver is resistant to the action of dilute acids and
alkalis of the stomach and intestine, and consequently continues their
catalytic action and pass into the intestine unchanged.
Wells reported in Lancet (February 16, 1918) that a preparation of
colloidal silver was "used intravenously in a case of puerperal
septicemia without any irritation of the kidneys and with no
pigmentation of the skin."
sulfadiazine (Silvadene, Marion Laboratories) is used in 70 percent of
the burn centers in America; discovered by Dr. Charles Fox, Columbia,
University, sulfadiazine has been used successfully to treat syphilis,
cholera and malaria; it also stops the herpes virus responsible for "coldsores"
and "fever blisters."
Silver is an
anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal anti-metabolite that disables
specific enzymes that microorganisms use for respiration. Silver is such
an efficient anti-bactericidal that our "Great-grand mothers put silver
dollars in fresh milk to keep it from spoiling at room temperature."
Humans can consume
400 mg of silver per day (as long as it is water-soluble). Silver
"deficiency" results in an impaired immune system. In "The Body
Electric", Robert Becker, M.D. identified a relationship between low
levels of dietary silver and the rate of illness (flu, colds, etc.); he
stated, "silver deficiency was responsible for the improper functioning
of the immune system, and silver does more than just kill disease
causing organisms; it was also causing major growth stimulation (another
criteria for essentiality) of injured tissue." Human fibroblast cells
were able to multiply at a great rate, producing large numbers of
primitive, embryonic cells in wounds that are able to differentiate into
whatever cell types that are necessary to heal the wound.
Nordstrom, of the Karolinska Institute, Sweden, has used silver in his
alternative cancer therapy programs.
Science Digest (Silver: Our Mightiest Germ Fighter. March 1978) silver
is an antibiotic, silver kills over 650 disease causing organisms;
resistant strains fail to develop; silver is absolutely non-toxic to
humans at standard rates of consumption.

Even so, there is
little evidence (from direct research) that silver is essential for any
living organism, nor is it ranked among the more toxic trace elements.
It occurs naturally in very low concentrations in soils, plants, and
animal tissues, and can gain access to foods from silver-plated vessels,
silver-lead solders, and silver foil used in decorating cakes and
The fact that
foods contain very little silver is supported by reports of
nondetectable to less than a few nanograms of silver per gram of a
variety of fruits and vegetables, and orange juice, the finding of only
10 ng silver per gram of fresh banana pulp, and the finding of 0.027 to
0.054 mg silver per liter (weighted average of 0.047 +or- 0.007
mg/liter) of cow's milk. Further support comes from the reported human
dietary silver intakes of 27 ± 17 mcg/day (and <1.0 mcg/day.
The level of
silver in normal human tissues is also very low. Hamilton et al. found
the following mean values, expressed as micrograms of silver per gram
fresh tissue: brain 0.004, kidneys 0.002, liver 0.006, lungs 0.002,
lymph nodes 0.001, muscle 0.002, testis 0.002, and ovaries 0.002.
USES OF SILVER
When uses of silver are mentioned here, I am talking about silver that
is water-soluble; that is, silver ions only in distilled ozonated water.
This solution is clear and non-toxic.
include oral (as a gargle for sore throat or sores in the mouth),
topical, and nasal, in the ear, vaginal or as a spray to other sensitive
tissues. Silver kills all disease-causing bacteria, fungus, and viruses
within a few minutes of application, but leaves the friendly microbes
unharmed. Many use a silver solution daily or at least at regular
intervals to boost their immune system. The silver solution does not
sting, burn or hurt even the most sensitive of body tissues.
Silver can be used
on warts, open sores or wounds, or a rinse for acne, eczema or other
skin irritations. It can be used vaginally as a cleansing antiseptic
douche, rectally as a cleansing enema, or atomized and inhaled. Silver
in the water-soluble form has been used by my family as an antiseptic
Silver has been
noted to kill over 650 microbial disease-causing organisms. This is like
having a broad-spectrum antibiotic at you disposal. A few drops of
silver solution can be put on a Band-Aid and worn over warts, scrapes or
cuts. You can dab the silver solution directly on eczema or other itchy
areas, on acne, mosquito bites or any skin problems. You can even put 3
or 4 ounces of silver into you your shampoo and use it as an antiseptic,
dandruff shampoo. It can also be used as a rinse after shampooing.
silver can be put into your water dispensers to keep not only the water
sterile but also keeps the spout clean. There will be no slime in the
spout or in the bottom of your dispenser here. Silver can sterilize
drinking water and help keep milk fresh longer. (NOTE: The pioneers who
traveled west would put silver coins in their water barrels to keep the
water from spoiling). Use about 1 teaspoonful of silver per gallon of
water. You can also use silver as a food preservative in canning at
about 1/4 teaspoonful per quart.
Why haven't we heard of silver mineral water before?
Perhaps we have
and do not remember. For many years all hospitals were required by law
to use silver nitrate solution in the eyes of newborn babies. This was
to insure the baby's eyesight if the mother had Gonorrhea. After
application the tissue around the eyes would be stained black for a few
days giving evidence of silver's use. This method was very inexpensive.
But, not wanting to leave well enough alone, the hospitals abandoned its
use when antibiotics became widely used. The "antiquated" silver
solutions were quietly shelved in favor of the broad-spectrum
antibiotics. So much for progress.
This is a list of conditions we believe that our Zinc Mineral Water may be

or as recommended by a health care professional
How to Use:
Take the recommended dosage of water soluble minerals with a full glass
of water, juice or other liquid.
For best results refrigerate after opening and use within six months.
However you can keep in a cool and dry location and away from direct
light, but do not freeze. Keep safely away from children. Do not keep in
bathroom medicine cabinet. Heat and dampness may alter the action of the
