Safety with Zero Toxicity in NutraSilver
This is a critically important question to ask. “Is NutraSilver safe for me and my family?” You HAVE to ask that question if you’re a well-thinking human that cares for your health and the health of your loved ones.
“Common substances like table salt and aspirin are harmless with normal use, but excessive intake can become toxic and even life-threatening. With normal responsible usage, silver supplements are entirely harmless to humans.” Jeffrey Blumer, M.D., Ph.D., director of the Center for Drug Research, the world’s largest clinical research center for pediatric drugs, and former director of the Greater Cleveland Poison Control Center
Unfortunately, you don’t always get a straight answer from manufacturers. Most of the time it’s because in the natural health supplement world, lab tests are inconclusive or results are hard to come by. Not so with NutraSilver.
Important Nano-Silver Background You Need to Know
Humans have been using silver as an anti-microbial for arguably 3 or 4,000 years. We can not find even one case of anyone being harmed or dying using any colloidal silver. We do know of people harmed or killed using pharmaceutical drugs.
“There is no known disease-causing organism that can live in the presence of even minute traces of the chemical element of simple metallic silver,” according to Larry C. Ford, M.D., at the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology” –
“Colloidal silver has proven to be toxic to all tested species of fungi, bacteria, protozoa, parasites and many viruses. More importantly—unlike conventional antibiotics—infectious agents, cannot build a resistance to silver.” UCLA School of Medicine, 1988.
The Environmental Protection Agency Reveals Their Conclusions on Colloidal Silver:
“Argyria has been described in syphilitic patients in poor health who were therapeutically dosed with a total of about 1 g of silver in the form of silver arsphenamine together with other toxic metals. There have been no reports of argyria or other toxic effects resulting from the exposure of healthy persons to silver.”
“Although the deposition of silver is permanent, it is not associated with any adverse health effects. No pathological changes or inflammatory reactions have been shown to result from silver deposition. Silver compounds have been employed for medical uses for centuries. In the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, silver amphetamine was used in the treatment of syphilis; more recently it has been used as an astringent in topical preparations. While argyria occurred more commonly before the development of antibiotics, it is now a rare occurrence.”
“Taking one ounce of colloidal silver daily, according to EPA guidelines, is well below the critical daily intake for the development of argyria.”
Silver Washes Out Of The System Quickly
According to the EPA IRIS Report on silver (Integrated Risk Information Systems, 5th page, 1st paragraph) it states that a number of tests were completed to test the absorption and retention of ingested silver in a number of animals, including primates [we are primates]. In its conclusion, the test work indicated that between 90-99% of ingested silver was excreted on the second day after ingestion, and greater than 99% was excreted in less than a week. So, in other words, almost all of the ingested silver was out of the body in only two days, and most of the rest was out of the body in a week. They found that silver does not build up in the system.
What Silver Products Cause Argyria?
The US Federal Register listed the silver products that cause argyria as: silver salts, including silver nitrate, silver arsphenamine, silver chloride and possibly silver iodide.
These products were sold until about 1975 under various labels consisting of silver solutions ranging from 5-30% silver [50,000-300,000 ppm (parts per million) of silver] (Federal Register, FDA-21CFR Part 310, pg. 53685).
