All-Natural Relief - 14 ppm & 40% More Potent
Essential Silver contains microscopic flakes of pure silver suspended in demineralized water. It is a safe antimicrobial agent proven to act against a wide range of bacteria and yeasts and does not generate strains of bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics. Nearly all silver solutions on the market are 8-10 ppm (parts per million) but Suvida Essential Silver is more concentrated and the purest solution on the market at 14 ppm, making it 40% more powerful. Essential Silver's unique patented process creates a solution that is at least 2-3 times more effective than regular silvers on the market (see full study reports below).
