Colloidal Silver Information
Question: Is colloidal silver helpful for any condition and is it safe to use? I'm seeing it promoted for many applications.
Answer: Colloidal Silver InformationColloidal silver (a solution with silver particles) has antiseptic activity but should not be taken internally, as it has no clinically-proven benefit and long-term exposure can cause argyria, a permanent discoloration of the skin. In 1999, the FDA banned colloidal silver as an over-the-counter drug for internal as well as external use, although, legally, it remains available as a dietary supplement.
