Silver’s association with anti-bacterial properties has long been established. In India, many households till today store water and certain foods in silver vessels to ensure freshness, a practice that was quite common several generations ago. Our ancestors didn’t need scientists to tell them about the medicinal benefits of this shiny metal. Silver interrupts the bacteria cell’s ability to form the chemical bonds essential to its survival. These bonds produce the cell’s physical structure so when the bacteria meets silver it literally falls apart.
Since the advent of penicillin, antibiotics have been the mainstay for treatment of infections. Silver, also being more expensive slowly faded away as the antimicrobial treatment of choice. Unfortunately, some bacteria have evolved over time and have started to develop resistance to antibiotics making them potentially deadly once again.
Luckily, in the last few decades, the technology to use silver as a germ fighter has also evolved. SilverSol® technology, patented in the USA by American Biotech Labs in 2007 is one of the most revolutionary developments in the use of silver for medicinal purposes. Known for its anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and anti-fungal properties, SilverSol is becoming popular in many new treatments. According to the U.S. patent (approved Nov. 2007), Silver Sol has the ability to destroy 143 types of bacteria, both forms of viruses, mold, yeast, and a limited number of parasites.
Silver has actually been proven to promote the growth of new cells, thereby increasing the rate at which wounds can heal. And, unlike other metals with antimicrobial properties, it is not toxic to humans.
QNET’s BioSilver 22 Gel uses SilverSol® technology to harness the non-toxic power of silver to heal and regenerate. BioSilver may be used as an alternative to topical antibiotics due to its ability to fight infection caused by antibiotic-resistant bacteria and fungi.
The Biosilver 22 Gel is a must in your medicine cabinet or first aid kit. Keep a tube with you always. You never know when you will need it.
