Is Colloidal silver a cure for coronavirus as televangelists in the US and several news outlets claim? Here's the scoop on Colloidal silver.

Is Colloidal silver a cure for coronavirus?

There is no medical cure for coronavirus and all viral infections, which is why people are turning to nature for solutions. One of the known natural antivirus agents is colloidal silver, a traditional remedy whose antiseptic properties were used in ancient Egypt, the Middle East and India by royal households to keep water and other fluids fresh and to treat various infections. Until its ban in the 1930s, it was recognized and used as a broad-spectrum antimicrobial by clinicians to treat bacterial, parasitical, fungal and viral infections. But is Colloidal silver a cure for coronavirus as televangelists in the US and several news outlets claim? This article focuses on its antiviral properties in connection with coronavirus.

Colloidal silver and coronavirus

In the absence of medical solutions for coronavirus, people are turning to natural solutions such as colloidal silver. Because colloidal silver is a broad-spectrum antivirus, that also strengthens the immune system, it can potentially prevent or help to treat coronavirus infection. Many people are now taking it prevent infection. Websites that sell colloidal silver have seen an increase in article views and purchases of colloidal silver by people in Hong Kong and China.

On the Jim Bakker show, naturopathic doctor Sherrill Sellman said Silver Solution has been tested on some of the strains of coronavirus and found to effectively deactivate them and to boost the immune system. The product in the article sells for $125 (£95) but high quality colloidal silver can also be sourced from  reputable sellers in the UK who ship globally – for as little as £9.99 for a 15ml bottle.

Medical use and research on colloidal silver

Before antibiotics were invented, colloidal silver was used until there was pressure to remove it from the market in the 20th century because silver is natural and cannot be patented. Now companies are permitted to use it in medical instruments and wound dressings to kill pathogens. Many manufacturers have registered numerous patents for colloidal silver medical products. Colloidal silver is extensively used in medical implants, wound dressings, dental work, surgical needles, breathing tubes, bone implant systems, fracture setting instruments and catheters (to kill pathogens). Consumers should ask themselves why it was banned and is now being widely used in medical products.

Research into its efficacy as an antimicrobial agent is ongoing and it is now known to kill over 650 known pathogens within 72 hours. In one study, three types of silver nanoparticles, one in a magnetic form, were tested and found to effectively destroy bacteriophage ϕX174, murine norovirus (MNV), and adenovirus serotype 2 (AdV2) under different conditions. The magnetic form was found to be most effective.

Colloidal silver has also been found to kill and eradicate the smallpox virus, the influenza virus and HIV-1, and to prevent HIV from attaching to host cells. It is known to prevent infections and viruses such as hepatitis B. It is also used to treat and prevent flu and the common cold. A study on children up to 12 years old, with nasal congestion and the common cold, treated half of them with a solution of silver and beta glucan and the other half with saline solution. Both groups benefited, but 90% of the silver group completely recovered.

There have been many other studies. Still, currently available research evidence only reveals the surface of the potential benefits. More research is required.

Three Ways in Which Colloidal Silver Works

DNA binding. Colloidal silver goes straight to the DNA of the virus (and other pathogens) and binds with the DNA. In the process it destroys the hydrogen that holds the cell together, destroys the cell and kills the virus.

Pathogen cell membranes. Colloidal silver also attaches to the virus’ cell membrane and foils its attempt to attach itself to the host cells, preventing infection.

Catalytic oxidation. Colloidal silver attaches to oxygen molecules and reacts with certain molecules that circle around viruses. The virus then fails to attack body cells.

Risks of using colloidal silver

There are claims that colloidal silver doesn’t work at all and myths that it poses risks. However, many people who have used it, including Gwyneth Paltrow and Kourtney Kardashian, swear by it.

Colloidal silver will kill pathogens but will not affect the beneficial bacteria in the gut. It is even safe for pregnant women and children. One big benefit of taking colloidal silver is that it doesn’t create any resistance in pathogens. It has even been found to be effective in destroying drug-resistant MRSA pathogens that cause life-threatening infections. Yet it has no known side-effects.

However, poor quality colloidal silver with impurities and fillers (that may be toxic), ionic silver and high concentration colloidal silver will cause problems such as turning the skin blue. This is why people should not make colloidal silver at home and preferably buy good quality products from reputable sources.

Final scoop:

The coronavirus is a new phenomenon and there is no research on potential cures. Colloidal silver may be a lifeline or just a gimmick – only time will tell. Clearly there is a lot of positive information about Colloidal silver which, in the absence of a mainstream solution, is not something to be dismissed outright.

  • You need to qualify in saying, “Colloidal silver can turn your skin blue.” There has been, to my knowledge, only one person where their skin turned blue, which resulted by taking gallons of colloidal silver in a short period of time over an extended period of time. But when taken as directed there is absolutely no issues, period. The only thing one should know before taking colloidal silver is to know if they are allergic to metals, which very few people are. Other than that high quality colloidal silver is safe and the best remedy against ALL viruses and bacteria.

    • The person who’s skin turned blue had impurities in the silver which one was copper and that’s what turned his skin blue not the Colloidal Silver just FYI .

    • This was a fraud by a big pharma company


      March 25, 2020
    • Colliodal silver has been around for a VERY long time….So why isn’t there any creditable research? I find it hard to believe that there isn’t. Again, pharma money.

  • Jim Bakker is right about Colloidal Silver.
    It’s used in bandages and for treating burns.

    Simple to make it with pure silver rods, 3 9V batteries and distilled water
    Visit your nearby health food stores…
    They have all the traditional cures.

    What’s wrong with hot toddies as a starter.

    Doctors only prescribe pharmaceuticals BOO to them

    • Amen Greg. Used it for years now. Make it myself. No side effects in any of our family members. Doctors and pharmaceuticals hate it, since it work, hence this plenty negative websites and law suits. Regards, Albi

  • very important information for europe

  • Boy oh boy oh boy, does CS ever work , for many years now me & my wife & a few friends have not suffered from a flu or cold due to CS. I have treated many people with CS and cured them, 2 years ago my wife had a stroke, wound up in the hospital which is heavy laden with germs etc so she contracted U T I and the Doctor said it’s turning into sepsis which would have killed her. So I secretly treated her with VS and in 2 days she was cured. then about 4 months later still in hospital she got pneumonia & the Doctor said she would die in 4 days. So again I secretly treated her with CS and in 2 days the doctor said she’s all cured and can go home.So no one can tell me that CS won’t kill the Corona virus because it definately will. The world needs to wake up.

    • I’m glad to see there are still smart people around; maybe this is nature’s way (coronavirus) of getting rid of dumb and ignorant people and keeping the smart ones around to repopulate the world. Because the world is getting stupider, cause they believe whatever the media says (it is getting out of hand).

    • Hi Benjamin,

      CS = Colloidal Silver (obviously), but what about brand differences?
      I’ve heard they can vary in efficacy due to concentration and particle size etc.
      Do you have any thoughts on that perspective?

      March 22, 2020
      • Hello David I can’t tell you about brand differences or concentration or particle size. I make my own colloidal silver. and I check the content level with a laser beam. when it has a lot of silver in it, I take it off of the generator. And I have cured many with a flu or a cold in 4 hours. and cured UTI in two days and pneumonia in two days as well. And just yesterday this woman called me to tell me that I have completely cured her breast cancer in the last 2 weeks. So if CS will kill every virus known to man, why would it stop at the corona virus

        March 29, 2020
  • It absolutely works with many types of infections and can attest that it will not turn you blue . When i hear these same stupid arguments of how dangerous it is,. That tells me there is an effort to not let ppl cure themselves. Having had a bad mrsa infection yrs ago that the doctor had no idea how to solve,. I met someone that assured me they could cure,. It literally was two days and it was gone other than where i had it, the skin had to heal.
    It works.

  • I’ve been making and drinking this since 2010. Whenever I get a cold CS gets rid of it.

    March 19, 2020
  • Yes silver does work, just use your common sense, I have seen it quickly work on MRSA infections, deep cut infections from accidents, kidney infections, abscess gums, flu, colds, ear aches, and pink eye. It has never failed. Every virus, bacteria, or yeast infection that I have seen quickly cleared up after the use of the silver. I am no doctor, nor have any medical degrees so therefore can not give any advice. But being nearly 70 years old and never been in hospital since the early 1950’s, I can say that the silver is my go to item whenever bacteria, virus, yeast problem pops up. I am not anti doctor or anti medicine. I would definitely rush to a hospital if necessary, such as a broken bone, bad cut or an un diagnosed problem . Although I have been to a dentist a few times. Anyway, when this new virus hits town, I will be spraying a little silver into my nose, and drinking a teaspoonful before I go to the grocery store. If silver kills the other viruses it might work on this new one. Of course I will keep my distance from other people, wear light gloves and take all the other precautions when going to grocery store. Also I have not turned blue yet.

  • 6 years I’ve been making and taking this stuff, I haven’t turned blue.
    8ppm and your fine.
    NASA use it on the space station…..you ever seen a blue astronaut ??
    Wake up world.
    Or sit back and wait till your a statistic of Global Population Reduction……Dam bio labs.

    March 22, 2020
  • Made my own for 8 years now…. treated many things with it, Pink Eye (24hrs – Doctor said it would take 2 weeks), Glandular Fever (5 days – doctor said it would take 14 weeks!), common colds & flus, small infections etc….
    It’s not a cure all, i can’t get it to work on skin conditions like eczema or psoriasis, but its an effective home medicine for sure…
    I’m fully stocked and taking it daily to prevent Covid19 if i can, so are all the family.

    March 22, 2020
  • yes been using colloidal silver for years mainly for gum infection~it absolutely works and that is taking a small amount like a teaspoon every other day~i am going to try and stock up at reasonable ptice~ i promise you~it works for me !!

  • Hi I can’t afford a Dr. I got a sore throat so bad I cried I took what money I had & went to a dr. Nothing he gave me nothing just took my money. Then I researched I’ve been making my own Colloidal Silver for 6yrs. My sore throats earaches are gone in a few days. I started colloidal silver in a nubilizer 3 days ago. I nubilizer it on my dogs eyes to stop the tear stains. My husband soaked his foot in it & got rid of a MRSA like infection that the drs medication couldnt. One soaking is all but took.
    Why cant someone finance studies like Dr. OZ is doing on Coronavirus on alternative meds like silver. I also am sick of stupid drs. & medical studies that are biased. Ever illness drs. Say. I dont know what causes it I cant cure it but let’s try…. BS. So many cures exist. Plus they are making are food unfit for consumption.

  • Same thing here. I was add Vitamin C, as vital, in high doses. Around December of 2019 I had gotten lapse with the C and the CS — usually a tbs a day, especially in the flu season. My son got sick a week before Christmas, very bad respiratory — was it COVID-19, yeah, maybe, now that we know the timetable in the US really as around then — and I got it from him (I work at home) and I got sick on Christmas Day. Yes, it was a miserable four days — horrendous headache, fever and not heavy sinus but mucous and cough. I notice the med sites say once you have this C will not shorten it. Well, I don’t really care what the doctors say anymore. I took 3,000 mg. of C three times a day, CS 3 tbs a day spaced out, ginger tea with apple cider vinegar for nausea (only got sick once) and hopefully to get an appetite, which I had none. Any, this 64-year-old female was feeling better within four days — fatigue and cough lasted another week or two longer, but I was at least back to work. My soon took another week to feel better. He doesn’t listen to me.

    Anyway, that’s it. I used to get very sick colds and flu in my younger years, a couple of flu bouts sent me to the ER. Since 2008, when I started with at least 1,000 mg of C a day, magnesium 400 mg. a day and a good multi with 1,000 mg. of D, plus CS, I can count on one hand the times I have been sick, and those times, even the most miserable, only lasted, at the most, three days. I do live a very stressful life, and in those years between 2008 and the present it has been very, very stressful.

    I have never had insurance, because i can’t afford it. My three siblings, better off than I, with uber good insurance, for some reason have all kinds of problems, none of them use alternatives — they have faith in today’s medicine. I can’t really say Western medicine, can I? Because doctors used to recommend vitamins and silver was used for a variety of purposes, most especially burns.

    Oh, and on the subject of burns, I wish I had known about CS years ago, because I once burned my hand really bad with hot water, and it blistered for days. Last year I had some hot water spill on my hand while pouring tea. I wet a gauze with CS, wrapped it around my hand, and the pain was gone in less than an hour, as was the redness, no blisters, nothing — just perfect.

    I feel bad for people who don’t know about especially CS and Vitamin C, especially — they actually being told even C is a quackery. Please tell that to Dr. Levy, who speaks extensively on C, and the man whose story was on 60 Minutes, who was about to be removed from life support to die from swine flu. This was in Australia. Well, large infusions of C cured him completely. Shame on Big Medicine and Big Pharma.

    I will take precautions and I will give myself, and anyone who will listen, at least a fighting change. Oh, and before I forget, I have used this for my pets with wonderful results, too. And I am glad I discovered and glad I can make it. Yes, a pair of silver rods, not expensive, will make gallons of CS. No wonder Pharma and Big Medicine hates it.

  • How much is recommended? Assuming orally? As a preventative and/or treatment? Thx!

    March 23, 2020
  • Governments hate the fact that a simple silver solution could replace so many drugs and help tp keep people healthy. It has been proven time and time again that silver will cure a pneumonia within a week and yet, doctors still insists in sending people home with an antibiotic drug that could do a lot more harm than good. Just try to imagine how it would look if a doctor dared to use silver in the lungs to treat the coronavirus and succeeded. Do you think he would announce the result or hide it? Of course he would hide it as the medical associations would destroy him if he did.

    March 24, 2020
  • Been making and using CS for 6 years. Anytime a Cold or Flu has started in me, CS has killed it within a day or two. It saved my brother from Bacterial Pneumonia when there were no antibiotics left to try. It IS being used more and more even by doctors for many things. The only real problem is that the Pharmaceutical companies can’t make money. And think of how much less doctors and hospitals would make if we are able to fix ourselves. It’s really a sad thing to think that money is more important than our health.

    March 24, 2020
  • Colloidal Silver is a perfectly LEGAL product. People should be encouraged to take Silver Water for the purpose of fighting bacterial and viral issues.

    March 24, 2020
  • We found colloidal silver in 2000 .. it was a life changer for us. After 3 years of experimental drugs that did not work this did. I totally recommend MesoSilver only. It’s the best and we trust it. We have used it 20 years now. We purchase the 5 gallon containers and divide it between family members . It’s the best price and we all split the cost . I could go on for days about what we have used it for. It’s amazing! It’s true . It works. We have purchased 30 gallons in all these years. No ones ever turned blue.
