A lot has been written about properties and uses of colloidal (ionic) silver dispersions and various bioactive properties of silver cations (Ag+). General public interest in applications of colloidal ionic silver dispersions (CISD) is quite understandable considering the uses of CISD which are diverse and range from antimicrobial treatments and facilitation of wound healing process to odour prevention in shoes and clothes.
Several years back I got interested in the properties of properly made colloidal (ionic) silver dispersions. First samples I got proved to be efficient in eradicating mould, reducing clothes and shoe odour and in general in proved to be efficient in eradicating microbes. However, I fast noticed that the results sometimes significantly varied between different samples produced according to different described production procedures.
Bioactive effects of saturated colloidal ionic dispersions on yeast samples, moulds and topical infections in animals and humans are unmistakably more apparent compared to bioactive effects of lower saturation dispersions, i.e. the same level of efficiency can be achieved with less volume of the dispersion.
