How is Silver Measured?

Less Is Actually More!

With things like vacation days and promotions, the common saying, ‘more is better’ is something we all love to hear! When referring to silver products, this is actually something to be avoided. There are numerous Colloidal silver products available on the market today, varying drastically in the amount of silver per serving.

How is Silver Measured?

It is common to measure silver concentration using parts per million (ppm), which basically means so many parts of silver per million parts of water (or whatever liquid is being used). Most silver products on the market range in the 50 to 100 ppm silver concentrations, with some as high as 5,000 ppm. Our products on the other hand, range from 10 to 24 ppm.

What does this mean for you?

It is easy to think that a higher concentrated product (100 ppm vs 10 ppm) is better because you’re getting 10 times the amount of silver than you would with the lower concentrated product. Although the mathematical side of the equation holds true, the difference lies in the structure of the silver particle and its mode or modes of action.

Take for instance the difference between consumer electronics like cell phones and computers today and these same products ten years ago. Not only are they more technologically advanced, but they are sizably smaller than their older counterparts. More importantly, consumer electronics today have significantly more processing power than they did over a decade ago. With this in mind, let’s go back to our silver products discussion. Would you rather purchase a package that contains ten old computers verses a package with one brand new computer to get the same amount of processing power? Likewise, would you rather purchase a 100 ppm silver product (with old Colloidal silver technology) or a 10 ppm silver product (with new SilverSol Technology® - The next generation of silver products)? Suddenly it’s easier to see why our products are the best answer for your immune support.

Colloidal Silver is the old, outdated way to take silver; Nano Silver is new and improved. Nano is how all our silver products are produced at Silver Solutions USA.
