How Colloidal Silver Protects Against Bacterial Infections

Colloidal silver is a powerful, natural immunity compound that uses particles of silver suspended in liquid as an all-purpose remedy to help repel infections and illnesses, with no harmful side-effects.

Colloidal silver has been used for centuries as ‘nature’s antibiotic’ and is especially effective as an all-purpose remedy for combating seasonal viruses. It works because the silver ions are particularly effective at seeking out and destroying pathogens.

Here we delve into how colloidal silver can help protect you from illness and ailments, while also discussing other natural ways to boost immunity in times where airborne pathogens and viral threats are most intense. 

No matter your age or health, it’s never too late to take your immune system into your own hands and take a proactive approach to keeping yourself healthy and safe using boosters, supplements, and good old-fashioned whole foods. 

1. Antibacterial Uses

Antibiotics are a fairly recent development, so in earlier times, colloidal silver was used for its antibacterial benefits because it’s known to kill a wide range of bacteria naturally and effectively. 

Colloidal silver is still a great modern-day alternative to antibiotics, which are being more and more over-prescribed in many countries to the point where they are beginning to create resistance and even 'super bugs'.

Be ahead of the curve by incorporating colloidal silver into your day-to-day, so that you’re not at the mercy of the healthcare system. 

Colloidal silver can be found in healthcare products like wound dressings and creams, and even medical equipment, because of its powerful antibacterial properties. 

Use Nature’s Silver Bullet either topically and orally for bacterial infections; if you have an eye or ear infection use 1-2 drops per day until the infection has cleared up.

2. Antifungal Uses

Another great benefit of colloidal silver is its anti-fungal properties. Developing a fungus at some point in your life is fairly common, and it can occur on a wide range of body parts from your feet to your nails. Colloidal silver can actually stop the growth of fungal infections, giving your body time to heal and fight the infection. 

Use Nature’s Silver Bullet for fungal infections by applying a few drops with your finger to the affected area a couple of times per day until the fungus clears up and keep the area dry, clean, and open to fresh air.

3. Antiviral Uses

Colloidal silver has no shortage of tricks in its bag: it also boasts strong antiviral properties, which is particularly beneficial during cold and flu season when there is no shortage of viruses. 

Colloidal silver can help kill viral compounds, which help prevent viruses from growing and spreading. In cold and flu season, viruses are so easy to catch and spread so natural products that kill viruses are an important part of your health and self-care routine. 

The colloidal silver in Nature’s Silver Bullet is a powerful immunity booster to help prevent you from catching viruses. It’s both a treatment and a preventative booster, so you can take it regularly to bolster yourself all year long, during cold and flu season, or just in times of need. 

Apply half a dropper to the back of the throat, swish around for 5 seconds, then swallow. During times of infection or viral overwhelm, repeat 5-10 times a day until infection subsides.

Don't Forget To Load Up On Immunity Boosting Foods

While natural boosters like colloidal silver are especially helpful for protection against viruses and cold and flu, it's not a substitute for a poor diet.

It's important to build strong foundations for your immune system by including an array of whole food nutrients in your diet.

Certain foods have particular immune-boosting properties which will help your body to defend itself from viral and bacterial attacks. 

These foods include:

  • Citrus Fruits e.g. Grapefruit, Lemons, Limes & Oranges are loaded with vitamin C and antiviral compounds;
  • Garlic is one of nature's true anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory foods that protects against infection ;
  • Berries e.g. Blueberries, Strawberries, Raspberries and Blackberries are mother nature's "vaccines" and should be eaten regularly as protector/inhibitors for your cells;
  • Turmeric is a potent anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory food
  • Nature-made salt (try these varieties) is vital for the cells and reducing infections and viral overwhelm in the body;
  • Raw honey - is renowned for its antibacterial and anti-fungal powers and is rich in antioxidants to boost the immune system.

These immunity superfoods can help protect you from viruses, so you’re not constantly fighting colds, fatigue, aches and pains.

At the same time, stay away from processed foods and animal products as much as possible as these only weaken and compromise your immune system.

The Main Takeaway

The human immune system is incredibly powerful and yet unfortunately these days, the medical community and media never talk about it.

A strong immune system helps protect you from a plethora of toxins you come into contact with on a daily basis, including seasonal viruses and all kinds of infections that you can be susceptible to over time.

Colloidal Silver is a natural supplement, that not only helps protect against cold and flu symptoms, but also provides general all round immune support as well. 

For this reason, Colloidal Silver is a versatile natural remedy that you should have readily available in your natural medicine cabinet at home. It is also the key ingredient in our natural immunity support product called, Nature’s Silver Bullet.

A few drops per day can help to keep nasty bacteria and pathogens at bay, particularly when combined with a clean, healthy diet, moderate exercise and sunshine. 

Whatever you do, be sure to make Colloidal Silver a part of your overall self care routine.  You'll find it here in our store at
