There’s been a lot of talk lately about “nano-silver.” And with what’s going on in the world right now, rightfully so. Many customers have asked if Mountain Well-Being Colloidal Silver is nano-silver. The answer is, yes, absolutely!
The Detailed definition of a “nanoparticle” is any particle measuring between 1-100 nanometers in size. Mountain WellBeing Colloidal Silver contains silver ions measuring less than one nanometer and silver particles averaging around one nanometer or just slightly over, and therefore is on the smallest end of the nano-particle range.
In fact, only the poorest quality colloidal silver and perhaps some of the mild silver protein products on the market will have particles greater than 100 nanometers. Since particle size (and thus surface area) is the most important factor in determining the quality, safety and performance of colloidal silver, all colloidal silver used internally should definitely be in the nano-particle range. And almost all of it is.
Why isn’t Mountain Well-Being Colloidal Silver marketed as nano-silver?
As you can see from reading the paragraphs above, nano-silver is not some elusive and rare product that only certain companies have the ability to produce. Silver in the nano-particle range of 1-100 nanometers is the norm for the majority of all colloidal silver on the market.
Nanotechnology (“nanotech”) is the manipulation of matter on an atomic, molecular and supramolecular scale. Some is useful and positive, while other parts are very controversial. Mountain Well-Being intentionally chooses to not use the term nano-silver so as not to confuse colloidal silver with some of the negative aspects of nanotechnology.
The term “nano-silver” is used by some colloidal silver companies mainly as a marketing gimmick to try to differentiate their product as being something different and better. Although there are many different factors that determine the quality of colloidal silver, being in the nano-particle size range is a given for any halfway decent product. It would be similar to a restaurant marketing their food as edible, when most restaurants serve edible food.
So while Mountain Well-Being Colloidal Silver is and has always been nano-silver, we will focus on the other less obvious qualities of our product, such as the way we purify and structure our mountain water; how we use devices to energetically enhance our solutions; the intentions that are programmed into each batch; the purity, clarity and potency of our product; the amber glass bottles we use; the special non-reactive rubber-like material we have specially made for our colloidal silver droppers; and our commitment to quality, value and 100% satisfaction, among others.
