Colloidal silver is the secret weapon in the world of water treatment. It’s safe, natural and extremely effective in treating water because it destroys all manner of waterborne nasty stuff.
Silver has been used for centuries… thousands of years really… as a natural antimicrobial. Nobody knows how humans figured out that elemental silver had some really cool natural antiseptic qualities, but there are records of Gretians using silver coins to maintain the quality of milk and other liquids.
That has carried into the modern era and has been enhanced with the advent of colloidal silver.
How to Use NutraSilver for Water Treatment and Purification
Luckily, this may be the simplest and most common application for colloidal silver. It’s one of our favorites and a secret weapon for those who enjoy the outdoors.
NutraSilver is the preferred alternative to water filtration, iodine tablets, chlorine drops and UV light because it is light weight, non-toxic, effective against all microbes, and it goes a long way (one drop treats a full liter).
Here’s what you need to do to use NutraSilver for water purification:
- Collect the water you would like to purify in a container for which you know the volume.
- Add one (1) drop per liter of water. For a 1 liter bottle, add one drop of Nutrasilver. For a 4 liter bladder, add four drops, etc.
- Let the container of water sit for 15 – 20 minutes. No need to shake the container, the silver will automatically mix itself evenly. The NutraSilver, for a typical stream-based water source, works in about 6 minutes but we ask you to wait a bit longer for good measure.
- Then Drink. Refresh.
- NOTE: If the water you are drinking is very questionable… from stagnant water or lake instead of a stream or river, add two drops for good measure and wait a little longer. Under extreme conditions, say, stagnant pools in slot canyons, filter the water through a shirt or article of clothing and then add two or three drops per liter. After 30 minutes you can drink safely.
Best part about all this? Your water tastes delicious and the NutraSilver actually does your body good. Very cool.
Only Kills PathogensIn cases of extreme emergency where toxic chemicals are present in the water that you are wanting to treat, colloidal silver will not guard against that.
That said, in those cases, the pathogens would probably kill you quicker than the unwanted chemicals so colloidal silver probably keep you healthy in most extreme cases. But just realize it does not neutralize chemical contamination at all.
