Why is Particle Surface Area Important? | Colloidal Silver Information

Particle surface area is what determines a colloids ability to react with its environment. Reactivity increases with increasing surface area. Particle surface area can be determined by measuring the physical properties of a colloid. Because it is comprised of two important physical properties, namely, particle size and particle concentration, it serves as good metric for comparing colloids.…

What does “particle surface area” mean?

Particle surface area is the total surface area in square centimeters (cm2) of all the particles in one milliliter(mL) of colloid. The surface area is a calculated value based on the concentration of particles (ppm) and the mean diameter of the particles. The calculation assumes the particles are spherical.  Particle surface area is inversely proportional to particle…

Can you demonstrate the ionic silver is present?

To demonstrate ionic silver content, all that is needed, is a chloride ion source to be added to a small amount of colloidal silver. Normal table salt is sodium chloride (NaCl). When table salt is dissolved in water it decomposes into sodium ions and chloride ions. To demonstrate: Place a small amount (1-2 ounces) of colloidal silver…

How else can colloidal silver particles get into the body?

Methods of Entry Colloidal silver can enter the bloodstream directly by at least two different means. The first is through the lungs by using a nebulizer to convert the colloidal silver into micron size droplets and then inhaling these droplets. The small size of the silver particles and silver ions will pass through the lung tissue directly into the bloodstream. Once…

What happens when colloidal silver is ingested?

Upon ingestion, the ionic silver present in most colloidal silver solutions will immediately come into contact with the hydrochloric (HCl) acid that normally exists in the stomach to digest food. The chloride ion from the hydrochloric acid combines at once with the silver ion to form silver chloride, an insoluble silver compound. Since hydrochloric acid does not dissolve metallic silver, the…
