Bio-Active Colloidal Silver Hydrosol by Sovereign Silver
Sovereign Silver Bio-Active Silver Hydrosol 10 Ppm - 16 oz. (473ml)
Sovereign Silver Bio-Active Silver Hydrosol 10 Ppm is a very effect immune support supplement. Recently, Silver has been used most notably in the prevention of colds and flu. Sovereign Silver Bio-Active Silver Hydrosol is Egg free, Wheat free, Soy free, Gluten free, Lactose free, Sugar free, Vegetarian, Dairy free, No Animal Testing and Hypo-Allergenic.
Nanotechnology has rendered silver into an exceedingly powerful tool destined to be one of the most commonly used minerals in the health industry, communications industry, sanitation industry, energy industry, alternative power industry, environmental management industry among many others.The reason for this wide-spread application is because of nanotechnology’s influence upon silver’s well-established
- (A) biological catalytic activity which may excite higher life forms into maximal states of immune function when the silver is in an oligodynamic state
- (B) its physical characteristics which establishes that it possesses the greatest electrical and thermal conductivity of all metals while possessing the lowest contact resistance.
The Sovereign Silver Difference
- ACTIVELY CHARGED
- As corroborated by a university study, Sovereign Silver contains 96 % actively charged silver particles (Ag+), at least 34 times more powerful than other brands.
- EASILY ABSORBED
- Sovereign Silver's unprecedented average particle size of 0.0008 microns allows for easy absorption into --and excretion from-- the cells and body.
- LESS IS MORE
- Sovereign's ultra-small particle size also results in a greater silver surface area. That's why even with a low concentration of 10 ppm, Sovereign Silver is still much more effective than brands which contain up to 500 ppm.
- PERFECTLY SAFE
- Sovereign Silver is formulated to be safe for the whole family. Taken 7x a day for 70 years, Sovereign Silver still falls below the EPA daily Oral Silver Reference Dose.
- 99.999% PURE
- Sovereign Silver has only two ingredients: silver and pharmaceutical-grade purified water. It does not contain added salts or proteins that render other silver products ineffective. Plus, it is packaged in non-leaching glass bottles.
About Natural-Immunogenics Corp.
This story began almost forty years ago, in 1966, while searching for an alternative to the chlorine-based systems to keep his swimming pool [in France] free of bacteria and algae. Mr. Stephen L. Quinto – the founder of Natural-Immunogenics 32 years later – was then introduced to the new development he sought. This new system, based on silver and copper ion generators, appeared to satisfy his criteria and he proceeded with the purchase and installation. Once completed, the water in the pool was kept at 88°F year-round; this system worked beautifully! At the time, he gave it no further thought.
Curiously, in 1997, at one of those most auspicious moments in life when one is liberated from the commitments that determine everyday efforts, an old colleague came by to visit bringing with him information on a new phenomenon he wanted to share; it was on 'colloidal silver'. Studying the material given him, Mr. Quinto suddenly realized that the pool he had built and enjoyed so many years ago had only been kept pure because it was, in fact, filled with the same material he was once again looking at …colloidal silver.
Thus began the pilgrimage that would ultimately take a yet-to-be company to the unique position of leadership it enjoys today. On that particular day in late 1997 he simply was determined to get to the bottom of the silver question. It became clear that what was being offered today as colloidal silver was essentially an elementary derivative of the same formulations widely used in medicine back when he was a child. Crude though they were, prior to the era of antibiotics they were the only effective options for infection. Furthermore, the technology employed today was generally no more evolved than that used 70 to 90 years ago when such products were the norm and in widespread use by the medical profession.
As a matter of fact, it was almost too easy to make this ‘product’; all it took was a pair of silver electrodes, some pure, or proteinated, water and a little AC or DC current ….and you could make for pennies what could then be sold for dollars. But Mr. Quinto knew instinctively that there was much more to it than had ever been seen.....
Research into colloidal silver had been effectively aborted some sixty years ago when these anti-infective products were displaced by antibiotics. The irony was that the breach occurred long before the technology to “see” them was even possible. [Electron microscopy was still thirty years away!] Mr. Quinto sensed that the path might possibly be recovered, and that what had been lost could be regained. He knew as well what this lost time had cost the world in destructive consequence and so set about his own research quest.
Working with a Doctorate-level chemist at the University of Miami as a sounding board, Mr. Quinto found the breakthrough he had become increasingly convinced was possible. Natural-Immunogenics Corp. was incorporated April 1, 1998. A year and a half later, the breakthrough occurred. He had produced, it appeared, a [colloidal] silver hydrosol so fine that its trace could not even be easily detected in an electron microscope.
Micrographs taken in a transmission electron microscope at Brigham Young University (BYU) proved what had been achieved, but further testing was needed before any decision would be taken. The microbiology lab at the U. of Miami then confirmed that it was “an historic immune agent,” even at dilutions of 150ppb (parts per billion), whereupon the decision was taken to commercially develop this state-of-the-art material; no other choice was possible. In the spring of 1999, the Company built and equipped a laboratory in an industrial park in Miami dedicated solely to the new technology.
The same summer, the FDA (Food & Drug Administration) – in a stinging rebuke to those making indiscriminate claims about colloidal silver – proceeded to regulate all silver-containing products off the shelves as an OTC drug product (a category to which it had belonged for over 100 years). The problem was, and continues to be, that opportunistic manufacturers proliferate on the internet, each claiming to be the only 'true' colloidal silver maker, or proposing one can make it oneself for pennies a day by buying their machines to make it at home.
What the Company had developed bore little resemblance to the products for which such claims were being made. In fact, what most manufacturers were making and selling as “colloidal silver” looked like the "by-product" [called "effluent", or waste material] of the process by which Natural-Immunogenics creates its own product, a material it discards.
In spite of that formidable setback imposed by the FDA, Natural-Immunogenics’ recognized that its unique development must be brought to the attention of the medical community -- not an easy task. But it saw that it was possible by first bringing the new product to the health food market under DSHEA (the Dietary Supplement Health & Education Act of 1994). That it was actually an enabling legislation was not without its perils, but the product was far too important to be suppressed.
The remaining problems were easily solved although it took time. Engineering the production process to reproduce the quality achieved experimentally took nine months. A transmission-electron microscope installed that summer confirmed that vast seas of the tiniest silver particles ever seen – averaging 0.0008 microns – were now being produced. The new production matrix was even better than what had been achieved experimentally.
Under Mr. Quinto’s leadership, the Company focused on bringing its extraordinary product to market. In late December 1999, “Sovereign Silver” was introduced into the U.S. marketplace. Two years later a derivative professional line based on the same technology followed; called “Argentyn 23”. Subsequently a variety of sizes and applications of each product were introduced: a fine mist spray, a vertical spray, and the three diferent-sized dropper bottles.
In the following five years the Company that oversaw the birth and development of an “evolutionary” immune product also saw its success in the marketplace. While toxic alternatives prevailed for sixty years or so, the new product it had developed was significantly superior than any of its predecessors. The quality and value of silver as THE supreme immune agent has been finally re-discovered, and consumer response, especially that from the medical community, has brought the Company the recognition it has earned.
Thus, in 2007, Natural-Immunogenics Corp's products are recognized as the finest of their kind. In this year too it will also develop derivative products of silver, as well as new mineral products whose properties - and the health benefits derived - will be enhanced by the unique technology it has developed. And as it does so, it will increase its share of responsibility for the future well-being of mankind, by satisfying the ever-growing demand for its silver hydrosol products.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Why is Sovereign Silver packaged in glass and not plastic?
A: Plastic containers contaminate silver products due to the reaction of silver ions with plastic. Colloids will leach contaminants from plastic due to its porosity. This creates unwanted chemical reactions. Glass ensures the formulation maintains its quality and integrity. This is why they would never bottle our liquid hydrosol in plastic.
Manufacturers make the decision to use plastic instead of glass for the following reasons:
1. It's cheaper than glass.
2. It eliminates breakages.
3. It reduces shipping weights and therefore shipping costs.
What do any of these have to do with improving the quality control? None! Their point exactly.
Q: Why is Sovereign Silver clear in color while most other silver products are not?
A: Color (yellow, gold, amber, brown, cloudy) is an indication of one or any combination of the following:
- Refraction of light off large particles.
- Chemical reagents or stabilizing additives.
- Oxidation during the time of manufacture.
This is a quick indication of poor quality, and if the manufacturer tries to tell you differently, you are being misled. The color of a good quality hydrosol should be clear or have a slight hue.
Q: Why is Sovereign Silver referred to as a Silver Hydrosol, and what differentiates it from Colloidal Silver, Ionic Silver and other silver supplements?
A: Over the past two decades, the term “colloidal silver” has been dramatically polluted by manufacturers that produce (knowingly or unknowingly) silver products contaminated by the presence of salts, proteins, compounds, stabilizers, and oxidation – all of which serve to degrade and diminish the bio-activity of the silver, and render it potentially toxic.
A Bio-Active Silver Hydrosol, such as Sovereign Silver or Argentyn 23, represents the ultimate refinement and purity of the colloidal silver category. It is the suspension of a high content (96%) of ultra-fine, positively charged silver ions (Ag+) in only pharmaceutical-grade purified water. This is not to be confused with ionic silver, an inferior form of neutral silver/silver salt that is in solution (dissolved), rather than in colloidal suspension. The positively charged silver ions (cations) in a Bio-Active Silver Hydrosol remain in suspension, maintaining their fully active state for use within the body.
To maintain the high quality and purity of its silver hydrosols, NIC bottles its products in amber glass by opposition to some manufacturers still using plastic
Q: Is Sovereign Silver safe for a baby or pregnant women?
A: Although they are not aware of any evidence of toxicity or adverse effect, they recommend that you consult with your doctor or holistic health care provider.
Q: Can I use Sovereign Silver as eye drops or for sores on my skin?
A: Prior to 1999, colloidal silver products were allowed to be sold and labeled ‘over-the-counter’ for many common health concerns, both external and internal. Today, they market and label Sovereign Silver to be used exclusively for ingestion as a dietary supplement, as regulated by the Dietary Supplement Health Educational Act (DSHEA) of 1994.
Q: Do other silver products pose risks that Sovereign Silver does not?
A: They can. Knowing what the safe and critical amounts are for silver ingestion is important. You want to buy a:
- Bio-active (high percentage particle charge content)
- Bio-available (low nano or sub-nanoparticle size -- 10 to 8 Ångstroms -which approaches a Particle Diffusion Coefficient of 10-5 cm2/second that may greatly facilitate bioassimilation), product, which
- Allows for multiple daily dosages while remaining safe due to a low parts per million (ppm) content of elemental silver.
As for homemade products, it is our view that it is unfeasible to produce safe, high bio-active silver formulations without the sophisticated laboratory resources available to us.
Q: Are other silver products with higher concentrations more powerful?
A: No. It’s not so much about concentration as it is about particle size and particle charge. The smaller the silver particle, the more powerful its energy. Also, the higher the percentage of charged silver particles, the more positive the biological action becomes. Actually Sovereign Silver at 10 ppm outperforms other brands up to 500 ppm or more. This is because such products with higher concentrations of silver are comprised of very high particle size ranges containing little, if any, charged silver particles.
Q: Can pets safely be given this product?
A: Please note that even though they manufacture the highest quality silver dietary supplement, which is safe and non-irritating, Sovereign Silver is only sold under the Dietary and Supplement Health Education Act (DSHEA). Therefore, they unfortunately cannot offer you any advice on this subject since its exclusive target market is for humans.
Q: Does Sovereign Silver destroy the friendly and beneficial probiotics (i.e., acidophilus) in my intestines when I ingest it?
A: To some small degree Sovereign Silver's active ingredient may inhibit probiotics.  But your nearly 30 feet of intestinal tract is consistently making more friendly probiotics. You can also enhance your internal production of probiotics by ingesting a high quality source with meals. Therefore, an especially effective strategy is to take both, but in a specific daily schedule by: (a) ingesting Sovereign Silver at bedtime or on an empty stomach away from meals, while taking (b) a dose of high quality probiotics from your health food store at meal times. In this way, you get the best of both, in terms of benefits and performance, without creating any conflicts.
Q: Will Sovereign Silver or Argentyn 23 give me Argyria (a condition that turns the skin blue)?
A: Argyria is a condition caused by the ingestion of elemental silver, silver dust or silver compounds. The most dramatic symptom of argyria is the skin becoming blue or bluish-gray colored. Argyria may be found as generalized argyria or local argyria. Argyrosis is the corresponding condition related to the eye. The condition is believed to be permanent, but laser therapy has been used to treat it with satisfactory cosmetic results.
It is true that using silver compounds (silver salts and silver proteins) will lead to Argyria (classified as a benign cosmetic condition), although Natural-Immunogenics Corp. (NIC) confidently guarantees that use of its Silver Hydrosols will not lead to Argyria.
Dr. Dana Flavin, former Science Assistant to the Associate Bureau Director for Toxicology at the Food & Drug Administration (FDA), which confirms that "Silver Hydrosol Products Sovereign Silver (10ppm) and Argentyn23 (23ppm) Cannot Cause Argyria" and explains the reasons why Natural-Immunogenics Corp. is the only colloidal silver manufacturer with such a statement.
Q: I understand now about the concentration and particle size aspects of Sovereign Silver, but what about the Mild Silver Protein products?
A: Sovereign Silver is nearly pure oligodynamic Ag+. Mild Silver Protein is a formulation that stabilizes silver by binding it to protein. Silver is inactive when bound to a protein. The real performance only comes from when the silver splits off from the protein, a process riddled with bottlenecks. Therefore, much more Mild Silver Protein is required to provide the same benefits as lower amounts of pure oligodynamic Ag+. Again, with Sovereign Silver you now understand that less means more!
Q: How do they know that Sovereign Silver is the #1-selling colloidal silver product (in the USA)?
A: According to SPINS, the leading provider of information on the Natural Products Industry and its consumer dynamics, Sovereign Silver has been the #1-selling colloidal silver product since 2005, and has the top 5 selling items out of the 91 colloidal silver supplement products it tracks. SPINS’ annual SPINSscan Natural Retail Measurement Services tracks sales of all UPC-coded products sold in the natural supermarket channel.
