Mountain Well-Being Colloidal Silver is a dietary supplement comprised of submicroscopic particles of silver and silver ions, electrically suspended in ultra pure water. The particles of silver are over 1000 times smaller than a human blood cell, and the liquid is clear. This ultra small particle size allows the silver to easily travel throughout the body and be eliminated on a continuous basis, with no risk of build-up. Mountain Well-Being Colloidal Silver is the safest and most effective form of silver supplementation available.Silver is one of the many minerals that our bodies need to function properly. Before our soils became severely depleted of minerals in the 20th century, the average daily intake of silver was approximately 50- 100 micrograms. Today, the typical American diet contains approximately 85% less silver and other trace minerals than it did 100 years ago. Taking one teaspoon of Mountain Well-Being Colloidal Silver will supply 75 micrograms of silver. The EPA states that it is safe to ingest 350 micrograms of silver each day. Dr. Robert O. Becker, M.D., author of The Body Electric, noticed a correlation between silver and health. People with higher levels of silver had a higher frequency of good health. Dr. Becker believed that adequate silver was the reason for people having a stronger immune system.
