Judging A Colloid By Its Color

August 16, 2012

How do you know a Colloidal Silver or Colloidal Gold is the best? By particle size! The smaller the particle size, the easier for the colloid to pass through the body—letting it reach more places, and exit safely.

Charge is also important! “Ionic” products will be attracted to other charged molecules in the body, and collect rather than continuing through. Ionic Silver, for example, will collect outside of cells near phosphorus.

Here’s the easy part: you can tell quality just be looking for, and at, color. Ionic products are not truly colloids (suspensions of nanoparticles), they’re solutions (particles dissolved in water). That means regardless of size, the nanosilver or nanogold is dissolved, and the color is clear.

When they have color, it matters! Colloids are particles suspended in water, those particles reflect light. Color can be a good indicator of size: tiny nanogold particles are burnt rose colored, but other sizes can be blue! Colloidal Gold should never contain any ions, ionic gold is a neurotoxin.

Colloidal silver is usually a dark grey-blue color,  but a lighter color may indicate a higher ratio of ionic silver particles. Colloidal silver cannot be 100% pure nano silver—the highest percentage, that of brands like MesoSilver, is about 80%. Other Colloidal Silver’s can be about 50% or less, or are just Silver ions. The color tells all!

Finally, never chill or freeze your Colloidal Silver or Colloidal Gold. The particles are suspended in water, and will fall out when frozen—the color will disappear and clumps will form in the bottom of the bottle.
