About Silver Ions

“Silver”, which has been said to have mysterious power since ancient times

“Silver” has been regarded as very valuable since ancient times by preventing the decay of important water and curing various diseases. According to the records of ancient Indian medical books, when soldiers went on an expedition, they kept drinking water in a silver jar to prevent plague.

Silver is a metal produced by nature, and when the metal “silver (Ag)” is placed in water, a small amount of silver ions (Ag +) elutes. In ancient times, water placed in silver jars did not rot because it contained trace amounts of silver ions.

In 1929, German G. Klaus discovered the bactericidal effect of silver ions eluted by electrolyzing silver in water. Taking advantage of this excellent bactericidal effect, it was later used as a treatment for cholera.

Currently, silver ions are known to be much safer than artificial disinfectants, and are applied in various daily necessities to support a comfortable living space.

Silver ion: The effect of Ag + has been confirmed by each research institution

Ions are atoms or groups of atoms that are charged due to excess or deficiency of electrons, and exist in aqueous electrolyte solutions, ionic crystals, and other ionic-bonding substances. This ion is divided into a positive (+) charged cation and a negative (-) charged anion.

Silver ions are cations expressed as “Ag +” because silver (Ag) is charged with (+).

The positively charged silver ions (Ag +) dissolved in the water attach to the negatively charged bacteria floating in the water and suppress the activity of the bacteria. By repeating this in water, a strong sterilizing effect of silver ions (Ag +) occurs.

The strong sterilizing and bactericidal effect of this silver ion has been confirmed by experiments by various universities and research institutes, but especially in the research conducted at the University of Arizona, it is effective against almost all pathogens. It has been proven.

Representative examples of research data from the University of Arizona

  • Staphylococcus
  • Salmonella
  • Shigella
  • Legionella
  • Pseudomonas
  • Poliovirus
  • Rotavirus
  • Herpesvirus

As you can see, the surprising result is that silver ion (Ag +) was effective against all the bacteria tested.

Silver ion (Ag +) has been found to have a wonderful effect, but a few years ago it was questioned about its sterilizing and deodorizing effects. However, this did not mean that the target product had a very low silver ion content and was not found to be sufficiently effective, and did not deny the bactericidal effect of silver ion (Ag +).

Differences between pico silver and general nano silver that we handle

The “silver ion” we handle is a pico-level ultra-fine silver ion with particles that are 1/1000 finer than the nano-level “silver ion” that is generally available, and the sterilization system is completely different. I will.

Its effect, efficacy and durability are not comparable to other disinfectants, antibacterial agents and deodorants as well as “nano silver”.
