Q. How can I make my own Colloidal Silver?

A. You can easily make your own Colloidal Silver, using one of two methods...
          1) Purchase a Colloidal Silver generator from say... here
          2) Make your own Colloidal Silver generator -
               get the plans... here

Q. How do I choose a Colloidal Silver Generator?

A. The Colloidal Silver generator you choose should have an inbuilt system which checks the concentration of the Colloidal Silver it is producing and turn off automatically when the required concentration is reached. This should be between approx. 5 and 10 ppm (parts per million). Make sure that the instructions say to use only high grade distilled water. This ensures that high grade Colloidal Silver will result.  The MProCSG meets all of the above criteria. Read other FAQs...

Q. Where has the MProCSG generator gone?

A. Due to TGA regulations the MProCSG Colloidal Silver generator unfortunately had to be moved to another web site www.mprocsg.kestar.com.au. Sorry for the inconvenience.Go To Top

Q. What is Colloidal Silver made of?

A. Colloidal Silver should be produced using High Grade distilled water and very pure silver electrodes. The silver electrodes are suspended in the High Grade distilled water and a potential is then connected to the electrodes of approx. 30 Volts (usually DC). This setup eventually produces sub-microscopic particles of silver in the water, held in colloidal form (evenly spread throughout the water). The MProCSG generator is designed to only work with High Grade distilled water (with an impurity value of less than approx. 1 ppm) and will switch itself off if any other water  is used. The electrodes supplied with this machine are 99.99+% pure. See article regarding using High Grade distilled water.

Q. How long does it take to make Colloidal Silver?

A. This depends mainly on the quantity and the temperature. When using the MProCSG, which produces 500ml (17 fluid oz) per batch, the time to produce from 5 - 10 ppm is about 3 - 5 hrs. This will decrease as the temperature rises. When using the Three Nines Plus generator, which makes a glass at a time, the time works out at around 30 - 60 minutes depending on the temperature.
NOTE - If you read literature which says that you can make it in a few minutes - watch out, this is probably not using pure water and/or something else is being added to the water eg. salt.  Read this FAQ ...

Q. How do you store Colloidal Silver? Can I refrigerate it?

A. Colloidal Silver should be stored in tinted glass bottles in a cool dark cupboard, away from electrical cables. Do not refrigerate.

Q. How long does Colloidal Silver keep for?

A. High quality Colloidal Silver will keep for months possibly years as long as you obey the rules as in previous answer.
Note: The fresher the better for human consumption. Therefore
make it yourself and you'll know it's fresh.Go To Top

Q. How long does Colloidal Silver take to work?

A. Normally it takes about four to six days to really get into the system.  Some people have found that for some conditions the results are immediate. This particularly the case for some skin conditions.

Q. Can I give Colloidal Silver to my animals?

A. Yes - it safe to give Colloidal Silver to animals, birds and fish etc. Add a few teaspoons to the dog's or cat's water or into the goldfish aquarium etc to keep them healthy. Even plants seem to thrive on Colloidal Silver. Make your own Colloidal Silver and then you can afford to spread it around as much as you want.

Q. Should Colloidal Silver be clear or cloudy?

A. Colloidal Silver should never be cloudy. This cloudiness indicates that the "Colloidal Silver" contains bi-products other than silver. This is usually because the water used to produce the Colloidal Silver is not of a high quality. Many generators will accept any water and will therefore produce an unknown (and often cloudy) quality of Colloidal Silver.
If the colloidal silver is cloudy - don't use it, throw it out.
If you are generating your own Colloidal Silver ensure that you use only High Grade Distilled Water.
The MProCSG generator will only accept high grade distilled water.

Q. Can I add salt when I make Colloidal Silver?

A. Salt should never be added when making Colloidal Silver. Some people use salt to speed up the process. If salt is added, silver chloride is produced and probably other undesirable by-products. To make pure Colloidal Silver, use the highest grade of distilled water you can find. You can speed up the process a little by adding a small amount of the previous batch of Colloidal Silver in with the high grade distilled water. Please see previous answer for information of a generator which will not work if salt is added.Go To Top

Q. What about Argyria?

A. Please see article on the MProCSG site.    

Q. How long should I take colloidal silver?

A. If you use pure colloidal silver made from high grade distilled water and 99.99% silver, you should be able to take it for as long as you like. As with all these things, you may want to check with your doctor.

Q. What does 5ppm mean?

A. 5ppm (5 parts per million) means that the concentration of silver is 5 parts for every 1,000,000 parts of water.
This is also often referred to as 5mg per Litre. Go To Top

Q. I took colloidal silver and I feel worse than ever. Why?

A. Sometimes this will happen when you first start taking Colloidal Silver.
Dhyana L. Coburn & Patrick D. Dignan describe this as a "Healing Crisis" on page 22 in their book 'The Wonders of Colloidal Silver'. and I quote... "You may go through what is known as a "healing crisis" or de-tox manifesting flu-like symptoms. This is not really considered a "side effect". The ill feeling is a natural reaction to the body's attempt to rid itself of poisons and pathogens. Elimination of toxins via the body's five channels (ie: skin, liver, lungs, kidneys, bowel) may be temporarily overloaded. You may experience this reaction with fever, nausea, headache, dizziness, aching muscles, or fatigue. If this happens, simply reduce the dosage and remember to drink lots of water. If you are under the care of a doctor or therapist, it may be their recommendation that you go through this healing crisis without cutting back the dosage. It's a good thing, not a bad thing. But it is an uncomfortable thing to go through."

Q. What is the correct Colloidal Silver dosage?

A. Many people are asking this question but I am not allowed to advise on Colloidal Silver dosage.
Here is a testimony from a user...
I personally take approx. 40ml (1.35 oz) at least twice a day. I leave it in my mouth as long as I can, to allow it to be absorbed into the blood stream though the pores under my tongue, then swallow it. I have been using pure Colloidal Silver for over ten years
(Eric R - Marion, South Australia. July 2009).

Q. Do I have to dilute Colloidal Silver?

A. Colloidal silver at the 5ppm to 10ppm rate does not require dilution. It is the perfect concentration to use as it is.Go To Top

Q.  What quality of colloidal silver should I get?

A. You should obtain the highest quality colloidal silver that you can get. The only way to know that you are using the highest grade colloidal silver is to make it yourself with a generator which only produces a high grade product. The MProCSG unit will not allow you to use water other than the highest grade distilled water and therefore will only produce the highest grade colloidal silver.

Q. What is the correct water to use for colloidal silver?

A. The correct water to use when making colloidal silver is High Grade Distilled water usually with less than 1ppm (parts per million) of impurities. (See this article)

Q. Does Colloidal Silver work?

A. Yes... please see all of the testimonies here and here.

Q. Can I take colloidal silver while also taking other medicine?

A.  As I understand it, colloidal silver can be taken with any other medicine. Of course there are exceptions to everything, if you have an adverse reaction, stop taking the combination.
