It is such a shame how not that many people are aware of colloidal silver and the plethora of benefits it offers. Many purveyors and users of colloidal silver actually consider it one of the most powerful natural antibiotics in the world.
Whether you own a colloidal silver generator or are simply reading this article in order to find out more about colloidal silver and its ability to fight bacteria, you have come to the right place.
The truth of the matter is, colloidal silver, when ingested, has the ability to kill off both good and bad bacteria in the body.
The beneficial microorganisms that live in our body help us digest food, extract nutrients from it, and assimilate those nutrients throughout the body. Lastly, these microorganisms also facilitate the processing of waste products from the body.
Because colloidal silver acts as a broad spectrum natural antibiotic, it is indeed possible for colloidal silver to reach the intestinal tract and kill off the good bacteria that thrives there.
However, it is important to note that up to three to seven pounds of beneficial microorganisms make their home in our intestinal tract and therefore one would have to take a rather large amount of colloidal silver in order to kill enough good bacteria and cause harm to one’s body.
The recommended daily maintenance by researchers of colloidal silver is one tablespoon to ounce per day of 5 ppm to 10 ppm colloidal silver.
Colloidal silver can be taken in the body without fear of killing off good bacteria and with every expectation of eliminating bad bacteria.
There are three reasons why:
The first reason is that absorption of colloidal silver by the gut happens very quickly and it also finds its way into the bloodstream very rapidly. That said majority of the colloidal silver actually bypasses the intestinal tract.
Secondly, the negligible amount of colloidal silver that is typically ingested by a person (assuming that they heed the recommended dosage) simply cannot overpower the sheer number of friendly microorganisms that reside in a person’s intestinal tract.
Lastly, the repopulation rate of friendly microbes is so prolific that the insignificant amount of colloidal silver that is ingested by the body cannot compete. In fact the small number of good bacteria that does get killed off will be immediately replaced the next day by a new colony. This is why there is no need to fret about colloidal silver killing off the friendly microbes in the body.
Colloidal silver is taken for its benefits such as preventing silver deficiency related issues, strengthening the immune system, and aiding the body in resisting different types of infections. Despite being aware of these wonderful benefits, given the information above it is absolutely necessary not to take more than the recommended amount of colloidal silver per day.
Should you take more than the recommended dosage, this is a scenario where you pose a danger to yourself and to your body’s natural functions. Then it becomes possible to kill off a significant number of good bacteria in the body which are necessary for optimal functions. No more than an ounce of colloidal silver should be consumed by the human body.
If you are experiencing a cold, flu or infection that you wish to get rid off in an expedited manner, you can take a larger dosage of colloidal silver. Just be sure to supplement with lactobacillus acidophilus or any other product that contains friendly microbes in order to replenish what the excess amount of colloidal silver may have killed off. Yogurt is one product that contains a good amount of beneficial bacteria.
