Silver in a nutshell
The benefits of silver were well known to ancient civilizations. Among others the early Greeks and Romans crafted water vessels and household utensils from this precious metal which was known to have antibacterial and anti-fungal properties.
By 1800, the first Colloidal Silver products were being used in medicine and veterinary practise to combat infection. Usage continued until the early twentieth century when they were displaced by the discovery and development of antibacterial sulphonamides (or 'sulpha' drugs) and the first antibiotic penicillin was later followed by more modern antibiotics.
The use of silver as an antimicrobial agent is currently being studied and increasingly applied in medicine. In fact, the number of scientific research papers published on colloidal silver in 2007 alone was in excess of 2,300 papers worldwide.
With the advances in nano technology that we have applied to our product, people are rediscovering the benefits of silver.
