The term “colloid” refers to a substance that consists of ultra-fine particles that do not dissolve but remain in suspension dispersed in a continuous medium. These ultra-fine particles consist of many atoms or molecules of the original material, but so small they cannot be seen by the naked eye.
Not all types of colloidal silver are ‘true’ colloids. Properly manufactured colloidal silver is a liquid solution consisting of a minuscule number (3 to 5 parts per million) of submicroscopic particles of silver, held in suspension in pure water by a tiny electrical charge placed on each particle.
In a ‘true’ colloid of silver, the ideal size of the silver particles falls within the range of 0.005 to 0.0015 microns in diameter. The particles are animated by what is known as Brownian movement, which keeps them in suspension almost indefinitely.
You could fit 1,000,000,000 of these submicroscopic particles into a cube that measures four one-hundredths of an inch.
The electrocollidal process allows extremely fine silver particles to be suspended in solution by the tiny charge placed on the particles. It is done by striking an electric arc between poles made of the metal under water. If done properly, this method replaces the need for any chemicals, stabilisers or proteins, so the product can be called a ‘true’ colloid of silver. However, much of the efficiency of the colloidal solution depends on the actual size and uniformity of silver particles. Particles that are too large may cause harm by lodging in the fine lining of the digestive tract and causing scar tissue to form.

- The American space agency NASA uses a silver water-purification system for its space shuttles; so do the Russians.
- The airline companies Air France, Alitalia, British Airways, Canadian Pacific, Japan Air Lines, KLM, Lufthansa, Olympic, SAS and Swissair use silver water-filters to curtail waterborne diseases.
- Silver is often used in place of chlorine in swimming pools because it doesn’t sting the eyes.
