Note on concentrations

ppm & mg / L

Colloidal silver (KS) is produced by electrolysis of water. As a by-product, silver atoms from the silver electrodes get into the dispersion through the current flow. As a result of the current transport, the silver atoms lose an electron and become positively charged silver ions. Due to the missing electron, these ions are chemically very reactive and effective. You can produce KS in three ways with goSilver devices:



Production with cold water (room temperature) This type of production takes the longest, as the low conductivity of the (cold) water means that only a very small current can flow at the beginning. The microcontroller measures the current every second and calculates the production time. With this type of production, the laws of physics mean that the silver ions in the dispersion repel each other and float in it. The dispersion remains clear. It mainly contains silver ions and only a few colloids are formed. One speaks of "ionic colloidal silver".



Production with little effort.

Multiple documented successes.



Longer manufacturing time. If the storage container is not closed, the silver ions can later form a bond with the oxygen in the air to form silver oxide. The dispersion can take on a grayish color. We therefore recommend - if possible - always freshly prepare the dispersion and use it quickly. In the case of storage, a purple or brown container should be used and sealed airtight.



Production with initially heated water In this type of production, the water is initially heated. The electrolysis then takes place during the cooling process.

By heating the working current can be reached faster, the duration of the electrolysis is shorter than without heating. The dispersion usually remains clear, but can also take on a light yellow color. As with manufacturing method 1, the silver ions predominate and few colloids are formed. One speaks of "ionic colloidal silver".



Faster manufacturing time.

Multiple documented successes.



Production requires medium effort.

Another disadvantage as under 1.



Production with permanent heat With this type of production, the individual silver ions combine to form colloids during the electrolysis. The dispersion contains only a few silver ions and, depending on the concentration, takes on a light yellow to black color. One speaks of "colloidal silver".



The dispersion is insensitive to light and oxygen. The effect hardly diminishes.



The production requires a lot of effort.

An additional adapter is required to protect the electrolysis device from heat and water vapor. There are only a few documented success reports.
