Ionic silver is widely known as a powerful natural antiseptic. Over the centuries, people have used the power of silver to prevent infection with pathogenic bacteria and fight infections of all kinds. Being a strong biocide for microbes and viruses, ionic silver is not toxic to multicellular organisms. The properties of ionic silver were studied and described in the 1930s in the USSR in the scientific works of the collective under the leadership of Academician of the Academy of Sciences of the Ukrainian SSR L.A. Kulsky. Their results testify to the unique bactericidal properties of "silver water", its wide application in the clinical practice of many foreign and Soviet medical institutions, in the medical industry and pharmacology.
The bactericidal properties of silver are already manifested with the minimum concentrations of metal ions in water (0.01 mg / l). This is enough to guarantee the destruction of about 650 varieties of pathogenic bacteria, viruses and fungi. This is explained by the mechanism of action of silver ions, which penetrate into the cell, disrupt the functions of the cell membrane and block bacterial enzymes, which leads to the inevitable death of microorganisms. Since multicellular organisms have a completely different type of membrane, silver particles do not have similar effects on the cells of such organisms, which makes Ionic silver is safe for humans, animals and plants.
In recent decades, due to the widespread use of antibiotics and chemical disinfectants, the process of the emergence of resistant strains of pathogens of dangerous diseases has accelerated, which creates a serious bacteriological threat to humanity. Ionic silver, killing the pathogenic microflora, preventing it from mutating and multiplying, excludes the possibility of the emergence of resistant strains. Thanks to the unique properties of ionic silver, interest in the development and use of silver-containing preparations has increased worldwide. Now scientists of many countries are carrying out large-scale studies that confirm the already known properties of ionic silver, and with the help of modern scientific technologies, new possibilities of its application in pharmacology, medicine, disinfection, water purification and other areas of life are opened.
