Applications of ionic silver and colloidal silver
The difference between ionic silver and colloidal silver.Colloidal silver generally refers to a suspension of extremely tiny particles of silver in water. To be more precise, colloidal silver refers to particles of silver that are larger than 1 atom and smaller than 100,000 nanometres.
Ionic silver, on the other hand, refers to silver ions dissolved in water. This is also why a solution of ionic silver in water has no colour but simply looks like normal water.
A silver ion is a silver atom that is missing one electron. In principle, silver ions are therefore unstable, as they are incomplete. Accordingly, silver ions are always trying to become “complete” and are always looking for another substance to balance the missing electron. Chlorine is such a substance to which silver ions are attracted, and a silver ion will immediately attach itself to any available chlorine atom to form a molecule of silver chloride, which can be written out as AgCl.
As long as there is no chlorine available in the vicinity, ionic silver and colloidal silver both have the same effect on the skin. However, once they are ingested, this is no longer true. As chlorine atoms are available inside the human body and in the stomach, ionic silver will immediately attach itself to chlorine and form a molecule of silver chloride AgCl. And the effect of silver chloride in no way resembles the effect of pure silver. This is true in general, as a compound composed of separate elements has a very different effect and characteristics than the separate elements of which it is composed.
Water (H2O) consists of two atoms of hydrogen (H) and one atom of oxygen (O). The characteristics of water have nothing at all in common with the characteristics of the two gases, hydrogen and oxygen, of which water is composed. In the same way, the effect of silver chloride inside the human body in no way resembles the effect of pure silver.
Recently published article (2015) at pages 1420 to 3049 Molecules ISSN 8856 -8874 where is very clearly proven that colloidal silver with a diameter smaller than 30 nm works most effectively.
