silver colloidal is right up there with the "contrail dissipators" with BS products. Iodine a filter or bleach are the way to go for safe water purification.

Yes a little silver if healthy fo the body, but sick with a proper made vitamin or eat with silver cutlery.

I've used colloidal silver for years on cut/scrapes, both major and minor with as good or better results then the OTC ointments.

I also put some in my stored water..no bad water to date, but I rotate the larger containers each year and the smaller ones sooner.

There may be a reason the filter elements of my big Berkey have silver in them.

That said, there are many vendors and you need to be sure of the quality/strength.

I use a product called Mild Silver Protein now.

I do make CS, easy to do yourself, but do it properly. No need to store it because in about 5 minutes you can make it. For water, bleech I guess if your storing water. I filter my CS through a paper towel and until breathing it, make it a little less strength. Watch the silver you use.

Good advice about the silver source...Do Not use silver coins..Contain copper usually...Only pure silver wire, etc..
