Atomic vs Ionic
- Composed of silver atoms
- Silver atoms are safer and more stable even at higher concentrations
- True colloidal silver contains atoms of silver with all electrons intact
- Maintains colloidal state indefinitely because of the small percent of protein molecule in the solution.
- As a rule, the higher the parts per million (PPM) the darker the color of solution - yellow to amber brown being highest quality.
- Solution will be clear with no particles visible to the human eye.
- Composed of silver ions.
- Ions are not as effective and have stability issues at higher concentrations due to missing electrons from the electrical process.
- It is uncommon for ionic solutions to be manufactured above 30 PPM due to stability reasons.
- Typically after a period of time, ionic solutions will clump together forming silver particles that are too large to be a silver colloid and are not safe for consumption.
- The product will be clear in color, but not necessarily clear in solution.
