Are You Concerned About Colloidal Silver Safety?

Colloidal silver is completely safe, but make sure that you are using only true colloidal silver. As per a report, 3 entirely different kinds of silver products are being sold with the same name – “colloidal silver”. The 3 types are:

  • Silver protein;
  • Ionic silver;
  • True colloidal silver.

Silver Protein

Silver protein is not safe and you should avoid it. You can identify it by shaking it. When shaken, it will create foam on the liquid which will not go for many minutes. This is the best giveaway of this unsafe form of so-called colloidal silver.

Silver protein products are promoted with claims of high concentration values. Their colors range from black to light amber. It has very high levels of silver which could cause argyria. In this condition, your skin will turn blue-gray. To avoid this product.

Ionic Silver

The ionic silver solution is clear or may have a slight yellowish tint. You can test colloidal silver to find its actually ionic silver.

  • Add some table salt into it;
  • If you find the liquid turning white and cloudy it is ionic silver.

Ionic silver has low levels of hazards. But it is much weaker compared to colloidal silver in terms of effectiveness. You cannot expect to enjoy the same benefits as mentioned above.

True Colloidal Silver

True colloidal silver is a very rare kind of silver available on the market, as its production cost is very high. But it is the safest silver product and offers all the benefits mentioned above.

Most of the silver content in this product is in silver particle form. So it is not clear like water. You will find suspended particles in it that block light and the liquid will look dark.

When it comes to choosing the safest and most effective silver, make use to consider all these points. You should also purchase it from a reputed brand.


Make sure to check the Silver Safety Committee’s Silver Safety Pyramid before you use colloidal silver topically or internally. It provides guidelines on how to use silver supplements safely. You should also consult your healthcare practitioner before using it.
