Tens of millions of colloidal silver users worldwide have demonstrated its safety and effectiveness. But is it safe to use colloidal silver at any dose?

According to Dr. Kent Holtorf, M.D., of the Holtorf Medical Group, in his clinical review titled “Safety and Efficacy of Oligodynamic Silver”:

“Hundreds of thousands of doses of oral colloidal silver and thousands of doses of intravenous colloidal silver are given every month in the United States.

This is usually done to treat acute and chronic infections including those associated with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) and fibromyalgia (FM).

The effectiveness of the use of oral and intravenous colloidal silver in the treatment of chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia was presented at the 38th Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Environmental Medicine in October 2003.

The extremely low level of colloidal silver used at 23 parts per million (ppm) has been shown to have little or no potential for toxicity while having the significant potential for clinical benefit.”

Indeed, 110 years worth of historical experience demonstrates clearly that colloidal silver is not only safe when used at reasonable and responsible dosage levels, but its healing benefits are often absolutely astonishing.

For example, at the Colloidal Silver Success Stories website, you’ll find literally hundreds upon hundreds of in-depth testimonials from experienced colloidal silver users who have documented their personal colloidal silver success stories in great detail.

1.The Big Lie

However, some people mistakenly believe that as long as colloidal silver is “properly made,” it cannot cause any harm whatsoever, regardless of how much you ingest each day.

In other words, they believe “properly made” colloidal silver cannot cause any harm to the human body even when ingested in large, daily quantities, for months or even years on end.

In the course of doing research for my book, The Ultimate Colloidal Silver Manual, I’ve seen this spurious idea being promulgated on YouTube videos…in articles on natural health blogs…and on websites selling colloidal silver.

And I’ve personally heard it being championed by enthusiastic (but ill-informed) colloidal silver users themselves.

Even some so-called colloidal silver “experts” seem to believe it.

Unfortunately, the idea that you can drink as much colloidal silver as you want as long as it’s “properly made” is blatantly untrue – in fact, it’s a great big lie.

Like any other natural substance on the face of the earth, if you use colloidal silver abusively, by overdosing yourself on it, on a regular basis, for long periods of time, you’re going to experience problems no matter how well-made your colloidal silver is.

That’s just plain, common sense.

And it’s true whether you’re using electrically generated colloidal silver, or other forms of colloidal silver such as mild silver protein, nanoparticle silver, silver chloride, silver oxide, silver citrate or any other colloidal silver supplement on the face of the earth.

As I’ve repeatedly pointed out over the years, there’s no such thing as a natural supplement you can take at excessively large dosages for long periods of time without experiencing harm.

For example:

The mineral iron, if used in excess on a regular daily basis, will cause your body’s tissues and organs to accumulate iron over time, causing untold damage to the body, including heart disease and even dementia.

The mineral selenium, if used in excess over long periods of time, will cause nervous system 

damage, and ultimately convulsions and even death.

Similarly, the mineral calcium, if used in excess over long periods of time, will cause calcification of soft tissue within the body, cellular toxicity and even heart disease.


Excessive use of vitamin A over long periods of time can cause liver damage, anemia and other problems.

I could go on and on, through each and every vitamin, mineral and nutritional supplement on the market, and each and every substance we use in our daily lives such as sugar and salt, both of which can ultimately cause disease and death if used in excess for long periods of time.

But I think you get the picture.

If you take too much of any substance – whether natural or synthetic, and no matter how benign – and you continue to overdose yourself on it, there will ultimately be repercussions to your health and well-being.

Colloidal silver is no different.

There’s over 110 years worth of historical data on colloidal silver usage, demonstrating that it’s perfectly safe to use in small daily amounts, and that it’s astonishingly effective against infections and related diseases of all sorts.

But that very same historical data demonstrates that when people start taking colloidal silver irresponsibly – which is to say, in overly-large daily dosages – and they continue to do so for long periods of time, they end up overwhelming their body’s very efficient mechanism for eliminating metallic minerals.


As a result, the body begins storing the excess silver in the tissues and organs, eventually pushing it out to the skin where it “tarnishes” (i.e., oxidizes) under exposure to sunlight.

This oxidation of silver particles in the skin results in skin-staining – i.e., the skin turns gray or blue from the inside out, in a process similar to making a photographic negative.

That unsightly skin condition is known in the medical literature as argyria. It’s a strictly cosmetic skin condition that most authorities – including the EPA – agree causes no additional harm to the human body.

Unfortunately, it’s a permanent skin condition, except in very mild cases in which a special form of laser tattoo removal can be used to remove the gray or blue pigmentation from the skin.

3.t’s All About the Dosage!

The point is this: No matter how well-made your colloidal silver is, if you’re overdosing yourself on it daily, for months or years on end, you’re sooner or later going to end up with the potential for argyric skin.

Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

You’ll see people on the internet saying things like “I’ve been drinking eight ounces of colloidal silver a day for two years, and I’m not blue yet.” Well, give it another two years, and you will be.

Put simply, the human body becomes a repository for silver when it’s ingested in excessive quantities over long periods of time.

The silver accumulates slowly and gradually in the body when so much of it is ingested that the normal processes of elimination (i.e., liver, kidneys and sweat) become overwhelmed. And as it accumulates little by little, it eventually migrates out to the skin.

The body doesn’t care if it’s poorly-made colloidal silver, or properly-made colloidal silver.

It doesn’t care if it’s electrically-generated colloidal silver, or chemically-produced colloidal silver such as nanoparticle silver.

And it doesn’t care if it’s silver compounds such as silver nitrate, silver chloride, silver arsphenamine or others.

If you ingest too much silver of any kind, regularly, for long periods of time, you risk argyria. Period. Dot. Exclamation point.

But used within reasonable amounts – usually between a teaspoonful and an ounce a day, depending upon body weight – it appears to be perfectly safe, based upon over 110 years worth of historical colloidal silver usage by literally tens of millions of people worldwide.


That’s because the human body has a built-in mechanism for transporting and eliminating silver from the human body.

As the Dartmouth University Toxic Metals Research Program has concluded, silver is a normal part of the human diet, and the body is able to excrete it effectively under normal circumstances:

“Trace amounts of silver are in the bodies of all humans and animals. We normally take in between 70 and 88 micrograms of silver a day, half of that amount from our diet.

Humans have evolved with efficient methods of dealing with that intake, however. Over 99 percent is readily excreted from the body.

Is silver harmful to humans? Unlike other metals such as lead and mercury, silver is not toxic to humans and is not known to cause cancer, reproductive or neurological damage, or other chronic adverse effects.”

People such as myself have taken colloidal silver in small daily amounts for over 20 years, with no negative effects whatsoever, and only positive health benefits.

Indeed, except in rare cases in which people are allergic to silver, or have severe deficiencies of the antioxidant substances used by the human body to effectively process silver (such as Vitamin E, selenium and glutathione or cysteine), using colloidal silver in small daily dosages appears to be as safe as any nutritional supplement you can think of.

So exactly how is colloidal silver used? Here’s a short list of uses:

  • Colloidal silver has been used successfully to kill disease-causing viruses, pathogenic fungi and yeast, and antibiotic-resistant bacteria (including MRSA).
  • It even kills deadly microbes like E. coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Candida albicans, Salmonella typhimurium, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Klebsiela pneumonia
  • It helps cure cold and flu viruses with ease.
  • What’s more, tooth and gum infections seem to be no match for colloidal silver, as well.
  • And its usage is highly recommended by experts such as TV’s Dr. Oz and world-famous heart surgeon Dr. Gerald Lemole.
  • Colloidal silver is even being studied by researchers as a safe, natural mouthwash.
  • Plus, it’s widely used as a safe, natural and non-toxic germ-busting household disinfectant.
  • Colloidal silver even has 12 very unusual uses, including its ability to stop termite infestations, eliminate pet odors in carpets, get rid of aphids from rose bushes, keeping a bouquet of flowers fresh longer, and much more.
