Silver Infusion is NOT “Colloidal Silver”!
Silver Infusion is “Ionic” Silver...
There is a similarity between "Ionic" silver and "colloidal" silver…kind of like cousins
but, there is also some night and day difference between the two.
(I will explain the differences a little later in this article)
Some so called “experts” in the online jungle of “Colloidal Silver” are not familiar or are grossly misinformed about “Ionic” silver. Some will tell you that “Ions” of silver are bad for you or that they don’t work at all and your body can't use them, or some other very ridicules stories! I feel t is because they are scared to death you will find out the truth...that they CAN'T make and they DON'T know how to make 100% Ions of silver...the only thing that matters in a silver solution!!!
My name is Greg Simmons and I am the president of GCS Manufacturing. I started my research into “Colloidal Silver” about 2004, because I had used “Colloidal Silver” with some very good results in various circumstances with myself and my family. After having many great successes with “Colloidal Silver” I started to dream…I wanted to run out and “save” the world with this great new product that I had just found, called "Colloidal Silver".
My first big plan was to manufacture this seemingly simple product to try and cure the ‘Asian Bird Flu’ along with helping my friends and family with any of their health issues. So, I set out on a mission to find the very best “Colloidal Silver” generator that I could get my hands on!
WOW…was my reaction after spending the first 2 – 3 months looking for that special generator that would fulfill my dream.
I found generator after generator after generator and the information about these generators varied so much from what I previously had learned on the internet that it completely deflated me and I found myself wondering if this was really what I wanted to do with my life. I found generators that used silver dollars for electrodes, or thin silver wires for electrodes! I found some that only produced one quart a day! How was I going to save the world making one quart a day using a silver dollar?
I dug deeper. I found “Colloidal Silver” generators that used very high voltage (I later learned that these high voltage generators produced dangerous chemicals in the solution and can be quite toxic to our bodies). So now I was even more confused and more deflated! I wanted nothing short of the absolute best “Colloidal Silver” product that I could find, to serve to the world and to my future customers!
Well, weeks turned into months and then into years, but I kept searching. A few times I would decide to buy a “Colloidal Silver” generator and because I did not feel 100% sure of this particular generator I would back out. That happened more than a dozen times!
I think I was hesitant because there was so much conflicting information on the web!
I am kind of a perfectionist and I only wanted the best “Colloidal Silver” to sell, because I knew I would not be able to sell it if it didn’t work and if I didn’t believe in it 100%.
After 4 ½ years I was no closer to making a decision, but I always kept one eye on the lookout for the perfect “Colloidal Silver” generator. Then one day I ran into a man that built electronics and microwave stuff for the Navy. His name is Fred. Fred was on the exact same journey as I was in regards to finding the best “Colloidal Silver” in the world!
His story was quite incredible…..to make a longer story shorter…..the doctors had sent him home from the hospital TO DIE!!! He was diagnosed with an incurable cancer! Anyway, over the last couple of years he been working on a prototype of a generator that made a Silver Solution (the very same generator that we use today). Fred wasn’t making the normal “Colloidal Silver” though, Fred was making IONIC Silver…the purest, most beneficial kind of Silver Solution! It wasn’t “Colloidal Silver” it was IONIC Silver! ….Fred had healed himself with this new stuff called IONIC Silver!!!
I couldn’t believe it! What was this stuff, anyway? Was it real or was Fred just another story teller on the internet???
Well, all I can say is that after meeting and talking with Fred for over 3 hours, I knew that All my time, All my research and All my effort had just paid off! Meeting Fred was a Godsend. Literally!
I learned that this new friend of mine, that he had been manufacturing custom electronic equipment for over 40 years for research, manufacturing and the military, including power supplies for medical X-ray equipment, Atomic fission research, space TWT transmitters, and thousands of others. Since most of his orders were for custom solutions and required on-site visits for engineering design reviews, Fred gained broad experience in many research and medical fields. This engineering, medical and electronic background has been applied to produce what we feel is the best generator of a true “Ionic” silver (NOT “Colloidal Silver”) ever made! The quality is clearly indicated by its clarity and the stability of the product produced, I.E. it lasts for years not weeks as many “Colloidal Silvers” do. (The shelf life of Silver Infusion is now in it's 7th year...and is still as perfect and pristine as the day it was made!)
Fred was the principle engineer at his company for over 30 years and contributed to the development of many innovative solutions in the high voltage electronic and medical fields. These ran from such oddities as lightning simulators for testing cattle deaths from nearby lightning strikes, to high voltage sausage casing perforators and short circuit protected 250,000 watt CO2 laser power supplies for welding at GM. He designed and built an improved TENS (transcuteneous electrical neurological stimulator) unit as a joint venture with a chiropractor. Fred also designed and built a novel High Voltage electronic tester for detecting minute leaks in IV solution bottles for Pfizer Medical etc. All of my intensive research had clearly just paid off…I had hit the mother lode …I had discovered Fred!
Between the two of us we have done over 25 years of combined research on the subject of “Colloidal Silver,” but Fred is the true genius here and the inventor of this new generator!
This man had already made a prototype of the “Ionic Silver” generator! This was unbelievable to me! My very long search was over…but at the time I still had my doubts about Fred’s new machine and I wondered…“did his ‘IONIC’ product even work?” Unbeknownst to Fred, I would ask him trick questions to see what his responses would be…after all I was becoming a pretty good expert on “Colloidal” Silver myself. It’s kind of funny looking back… thinking I was pretty wise and thinking that I knew it all about “Colloidal Silver”!
Over time I really began to trust Fred and I could see that everything he was saying made sense. Although I don’t usually change my thinking very hastily, what Fred was saying completely turned my “knowledge” about “Colloidal Silver” upside down!
Colloidal Silver wasn’t what I thought it was and it certainly DID NOT work the way that I had been taught and by everything that I had read on and off the internet. I had sadly, been misinformed by those who were simply misinformed themselves and by others who had other not so good intentions and agendas. The latter, misinforms everyone just to sell a product and to make a buck. These people don’t care if they sell you inferior or even sometimes dangerous “Colloidal Silver” products. They just seemed to care about selling you anything that may sound good to you and will make them a buck! These are the people and their websites that need to be exposed. Some sites surely need to be shut down because of the dangerous products they sell and the total disregard of their customers!
I feel that everyone can benefit from the real facts and better understanding about ‘Ionic’ vs. “Colloidal” silver and what exactly it is that you may or may not be putting into your bodies. We need to know whether it is safe…or not so safe to use. We need to ask some questions like…is this product completely safe for me and my family…is it helpful to my overall health…will it turn my skin blue…are there any other side effects etc, etc.
The key is to be informed so that you can make the right decisions about the medicines you are taking. With out real information you are lost in the sea of the unscrupulous or the ill informed sales people who just want your money…and they will surely take it without blinking…leaving it up to you to know the ins and outs of their product!
I am trying to say…buyer be aware!
Luckily, you don’t have to spend 15 years in research like I did! We will keep you informed through our fantastic newsletters and our informational website.
I will try to teach you in the best way I know how, everything I now know and everything I have learned in the past about “Colloidal Silver” vs. ionic Silver Infusion.
Now more about this subject…
Fred taught me that the only reason “Colloidal Silver” worked so well for me and millions of other is that when most “Colloidal Silver” is generated, (whether that is from a 1 quart home made generator using silver dollars, or from a commercial generator) a very small amount of the “Colloidal Silver” solutions is in the form of Ionic particles....approx. 3-5 %. (Ions are atom sized particles that are missing an electron). This small amount of ions being generated in these “Colloidal” Silver solutions is what makes “Colloidal Silver” so useful and effective. The rest of the “Colloidal Silver” solution is completely irrelevant and unusable by your body. Our bodies simply CANNOT use chunks of metal, they MUST be ions in order to be transported into the body by the metaloproteins! (more on metaloproteins later)
Virtually ALL of the producers of “Colloidal Silver” are completely missing the boat when it comes to “Why” and “How” their product works inside your body! They are relying on the same information that I was relying on and that information is simply…very outdated and usually completely wrong!
The 15 years of research is in and the evidence says…that your body does NOT and CANNOT use nano sized (or larger) particles of any metals! The process of your body just doesn’t work that way! Here is a very simplified explanation of the process…
When you eat food that has ions of metal in it (such as liver or vegetables or any food) (liver contains a large amount of iron ions) your body sends out metaloproteins to intercept, surround and then protect those ions from the stomach acids. These protected ions, now surrounded by metaloproteins, pass through the stomach (unaffected by the stomach acid)
These metallic and/or mineral ions are then transported into your small intestines where they are easily absorbed and once absorbed into your tissues the metalloproteins release those ions. This is how virtually all metals and minerals are synthesized in our bodies, including silver. The Metaloproteins can ONLY accept these ions (atom sized particles). The metaloproteins simply cannot surround particles larger than an atom. An equivalent situation would be like trying to surround your fingers around the “Rock of Gibralter” (Colloidal Silver) instead of a marble (ionic Silver Infusion)! Your body has NO way of transporting particles of silver into your tissues…it simply cannot happen!
Some “Colloidal” Silver Solutions have particles that are up to 45 Billion times larger than the ions in Silver Infusion!
Also very important…is the fact that ONLY the Silver ions can carry a positive charge (making them so useful against pathogens) NOT the larger particles in “Colloidal Silver! The larger particles do not possess a positive charge and consequently are ineffective and completely irrelevant for useful and healthful purposes!
Now, would you rather have 45 billion positive charged bullets to fight a bacterial war…or 1 big cannon ball that is a dud....and can NEVER even get onto the playing field?
Ions are the key to a great Silver Solution (Hydrosol) and “Colloidal” Silver can never come close to the safety, usefulness, effectiveness, bio-availability or the overall cost savings of ionic Silver Infusion!
Every 1 ounce of Silver Infusion contains over 1000 Trillion silver ions! Your body only has about 100 Trillion cells so 1 ounce of Silver Infusion could potentially infiltrate every cell in your body 10 times over! Yet, because of its small atom sized particles, your liver effectively removers approximately 94% of those particles from your blood in less than 2 hours and 98% from your whole body in 24 hours! That is one of the reasons Silver Infusion is so safe, because it doesn’t permanently stay in your body like “Colloidal Silver” can and does!
At GCS Manufacturing we have in our possession a new generator that is light years ahead of all the other generators on the market today!
We produces ONLY 100% of silver ions (atom sized particles) in every batch…NOT nano sized (or bigger) silver particles (as in “Colloidal Silver).
Silver Infusion is a completely clear solution and CANNOT be seen by the Tyndall effect…you cannot see atom sized particles of silver using the Tyndall method. The Tyndall effect happens when you shine a light beam through a solution (in this case a silver solution). If there is nano, or larger sized particles, you will see a yellow hue in the solution. The bigger the particles or the more polluted the water is (addition of salts or proteins by the manufacturer) the darker the Tyndall effect will be. The Tyndall experiment must be performed with a clear glass or jar. You cannot see Silver infusion’s atom sized particles, or “ions”, using the Tydall experiment or even with an electron microscope. Science simply does not have the ability or technology yet, to see atom sized particles in or out of a solution.
To create what we feel is the perfect solution (Silver Infusion) (pun unintended). We start with a seven step filtration system that creates a better than, medical grade or semi-conductor grade water! Our water, which we use for our Silver Infusion, has a minimum standard at .005 ppm. Well below the standards for great medical grade purified water. An equivalent purifying process would be to double distill the water, but we think the heat in that process destroys most of the great healing properties of water.
When you first use Silver Infusion you may notice that it is quite refreshing when it is put in the mouth. You might recognize that it seems to evaporate faster than normal water when you spray Silver Infusion onto your skin. The reason for these qualities is because of the purity of water that is used in Silver Infusion. You see, in the universe, out of all the elements, water is the very best all around solvent that we know of. In other words it combines and mixes very well with a lot of different elements.
Water has so many exciting properties. The main exciting property of water for all plants and animals is…its Life Giving Properties! But, another exciting property for us, (you and me) is that when you use ultra pure water, like that found in Silver Infusion, its solvency ability may be upwards of 10 times better than ordinary tap water (or water you find elsewhere such as lakes, rivers and oceans). Typical tap water in this country is between 150 and 300 parts per million (ppm) of dissolved solids. Now, we usually don’t know what those dissolved solids are without testing but, they usually contain some minerals, pesticides, dissolved gases, dissolved pharmaceuticals, microscopic decayed material, sometimes pathogens and some other not so pretty stuff.
My point here is not to gross you out or make you feel bad about the water that we drink. My point. is to tell you that with all of those dissolved solids in our tap water, the water doesn’t make for the greatest solvent in the universe. In my research I have found that ultra pure water, the kind they use in semi-conductors and other contaminant free processes make for a much, much better solvent.
Also, ultra pure water does NOT conduct electricity! The dissolved solids in tap water, is the reason that you get shocked in a bathtub when the radio falls in.
You will find, that because of the ultra pure water in Silver Infusion, it will actually soak into your skin about twice as fast as ordinary tap water. A lot of my customers have noticed that and thought it was evaporating faster. This is not the case. The best part is that ultra pure water is able to penetrate the skin and most importantly the cells in your body at a much more efficient and faster process than tap water. That is why it has that refreshing feeling when you ingest it.
(side note) I always ingest at least a tablespoon everyday to stay healthy and I have not been sick one time in the 7 years I have been taking Silver Infusion!
Now, let’s talk a little more about “Colloidal Silver”.
In the process of making “Colloidal Silver” a lot of manufactures use tap water at 150 – 300 ppm. of dissolved solids. Or, they use distilled water and add different substances such as sodium to the water so that it will conduct electricity! The problem for “Colloidal Silver” manufacturers is that they MUST use water that is NOT pure! If they were to use ultra pure water they would end up with nothing but pure water and there would be NO silver in their “Colloidal Silver” solution! The reason is because Ultra pure water does not conduct electricity and without the water conducting electricity they CANNOT make “Colloidal Silver”
SO, what do these manufactures do?
They use 150 – 300 parts per million tap water!
What is wrong with that?
Much…..is wrong with that!
When you start with tap water that is 150 ppm dissolved solids what do you think the end product will look like? Well, it will look exactly like at least 150 ppm of something! Right?
Stay with me here…
Our product…‘Silver Infusion’ is guaranteed to be at 5 ppm of silver ions to 99.995 ppm of ultra pure water. (We test our product continually to make sure our product is always what we say it is!)
Our Ionic silver generators do produce ions in ultra pure water...Fred is the only person I know of that was able to produce this unusual phenomenon in ultra pure water with GCS Manufacturing having exclusive rights to this process! Our generators are capable of manufacturing upwards of 10,000 gallons per day of ultra pure Silver infusion...THE most fantastic, amazing silver supplement ...ON THIS PLANET!
If you see a “Colloidal Silver” product advertised at say…20 parts per million of silver, you are going to have to ask yourself how in the world did they do that!!!
If you can’t make Colloidal Silver in purified water and the only water that will make “Colloidal Silver” is water that has dissolved solids in it (so it can conduct electricity) and tap water being 150 - 300 ppm then how in the world can they advertise 20 ppm? WHAT exactly is going on here???
At a starting point of 150 ppm (tap water) and adding say…another 20 ppm silver particles you will end up with a minimum of 170 ppm…right?
Well, let me tell you another problem this whole scenario has…
When you try to suspend 170 ppm of dissolved solids in a solution of water without any type of binder, those particles are going to precipitate out of that solution (i.e. settle to the bottom of the bottle) in a very short time frame, probably in as little as 4-6 weeks! Just dump out your Colloidal silver in the colored bottle and see what comes out...yuk!
PLUS, when you mix a positive charged particle of silver (“Colloidal Silver” does have some - about 3-5%) with negative charged particles of dissolved solids in tap water what do you think will happen???
What will happen is this…the positive charged particles of silver will attract the negative charged particles of dissolved solids and the dissolved solids will then completely surround and then render the silver particles completely useless and they will precipitate out (fall to the bottom) together. You will find this conglomerate mixture at the bottom of the bottle of most “Colloidal Silver”, if it has sat on the shelf for very long! The instructions on the bottle will tell you to shake first....WHY should you have to "shake first"? This has been proven over and over in dozens of tests that we have conducted over the years! This is why sometimes when you purchase “Colloidal” Silver it doesn’t seem to work very well, or maybe it doesn’t work at all. When you purchase “Colloidal” Silver, you never really know what you are going to get, even when purchasing from the same manufacturer. (Each batch can be different).
Please, DO NOT consume that which lies at the bottom of the bottle…we think it may be responsible for some of the Argyria (permanent graying of the skin) cases we hear about! (2-3 cases per year in the U.S.)
A lot of “Colloidal” Silver manufactures mislabel and mis-advertise their products this is why the government is trying to stop the sale of “Colloidal Silver”! But not ‘Ionic Silver’ or ionic Silver Infusion.
Buying “Colloidal Silver” is a crap shoot at best. It’s like Fred always used to say…”buying “Colloidal” Silver is like a crap shoot….ya never know whatch yer gunna git”!
