Colloidal silver has been historically used as an all-natural antibiotic. It is considered an effective remedy for many viruses, bacteria, and fungi and is believed to be less harmful on the kidneys and liver than other antibiotics. This liquid supplement can be used as a treatment or as a preventative. To ensure maximum health benefits, it is important to make sure the supplement is free from metallic silver. This can be done by using a simple hydrogen peroxide test.

Things You'll Need

  • 3-4 tablespoons colloidal silver
  • Sandwich-sized zipper storage bag
  • 1/2 teaspoon hydrogen peroxide

Place 3-4 tablespoons of colloidal silver into the zipper storage bag.

Add 1/2 teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide to the bag. Seal the bag, being careful to press out as much air as possible.

Place the bag flat in a location where it will not be disturbed. Leave it overnight.

Check the bag for bubbles. If the colloidal silver is free of metallic silver, there will be no bubbles.

Tips & Warnings

  • Ask for test results before purchasing colloidal silver from any manufacturer.
  • Further tests for specific metals may be needed if bubbles are present after the peroxide test.
