Colloidal silver side effects
Colloidal silver is a sort of a liquid gelatin with suspended solutions of really small silver metal particles in a colloidal base. Until the year of 1938. colloidal silver was used as a remedy for bacterial infections. However, colloidal silver was claimed by its makers to be a remedy for asthma, herpes, pneumonia and even AIDS but it was not with the recommendation of the FDA. Even though colloidal silver has a slight antibacterial effect, doctors recommend other antibiotics because they do not cause such severe side effects like colloidal silver.
Silver was used for medicinal purposes in the past. Nowadays, very few medications contain silver. Silver nitrate is one of them and is used for conjunctivitis prevention in babies and as a remedy for corns and warts. However, these days drugs that are not that toxic have replaced the use of silver.
Even though colloidal silver is mainly a liquid gelatin it is sometimes combined with other ingredients like protein for instance. When protein is added then this is considered to be a supplement and is taken orally most of the time. However, there are forms which can be sprayed, applied to the skin and even injected into the vein.
