What is Ionic/Colloidal Silver?
Colloidal silver is defined as a concentration of nano-sized particles of silver suspended in highly purified water where the majority of the solution is non-ionic, pure silver metal where there are no other additives such as citric acid, fulvic acid and/or proteins/polymers. This means pure silver metal and pure water, nothing more.
Ionic silver is defined as a concentration of silver ions suspended in highly purified water where the majority of the solution is comprised of positively charged silver atoms. When a silver atom loses one or more of its electrons, it is now termed an “ion” of silver and carries a positive charge because the protons of its structure now outnumber the electrons. Protons are positively charged while electrons are negatively charged. A greater amount of positive elements shifts the charge of the atom (ion) to positive. Ionic silver is denoted in physics and chemistry as (Ag+).
Ag Mountain is a combination of ionic and colloidal silver in a concentration of 15ppm.
How Does Silver Work?
In lay terms, it is commonly believed that a bacteria – in the presence of nano-sized silver particles and ions – will become suffocated through a chemical process called “Catalytic Oxidation”.
Other research shows that ionic silver can rob electrons from proteins and/or enzymes that a virus needs to survive and the same result is achieved indirectly by disabling these associated components required for the survival of a virus.
Ionic silver has been shown to regenerate cells that have been destroyed by disease or physical damage. Silver-infused bandages are commonly used in hospitals and “burn wards” to protect against infection and to greatly reduce tissue scarring.
How does Ag Mountain produce its solutions?
Ag Mountain uses commercial grade silver generators to produce its colloidal/ionic silver solutions to a concentration of 15ppm. We start with pure distilled water at 0ppm and through a slow electrolysis process using pure 99.99% elemental silver, we generate small batches to maintain the 15ppm consistency. Our process is slow, to ensure nano-sized particles and ions, and use a stirring process instead of the bubbling technique that may contaminate the solution from external air. The vessels the solutions are generated in are air tight and kept away from light until the transfer process in which we pour the solution into their shipping amber glass bottles. The amber glass protects the solution from light, which can affect the potency of the solution over time. This allows for a one-year shelf life, which is why we print the date of the solution on our labels. Ag Mountain produces its solutions locally in Arden, NC
