Comprised of nano-sized silver particles suspended in pure water, Health Factory’s Nano Silver offers a powerful alternative to conventional colloidal silver products.
The particles in Nano Silver by the Health Factory are 0.01 to 0.001 micron in diameter, which translates to about four hundred thousandths to four millionths of an inch. This gives them an exceptionally large surface area and, their tiny size, faciliates optimum absorption.
What is Nano Silver Used For?
Silver is a natural antibiotic, whose benefits for health have been recognised since ancient times. It was the Romans who first created their cutlery out of silver, believing the metal could protect them against germs and improve health. Silver is also used in conventional medicine as a bandage coating and coating for specific medical devices.
Over the last decade, nano silver has been incorpated as an ingredient into hundreds of domestic products from socks to washing powder, as a means of utilising its potent antibacterial, antimicrobial and antiobiotic properties.
- It kills more than 650 different pathogenic bacteria, fungi, viruses, yeasts, and parasites.
- A versatile, natural antibiotic.
- It is a potent anti-inflammatory inhibitor for bacterial and viral infections.
- It is widely used as a detox agent for intestines, blood, brains, and organs.
- It helps to break down the pathogenic biofilm (plaque, excess mucus layer in intestines).
- Acts as a “second immune system”, beneficial to flu and colds and strengthens the action of other supplements.
- It activates the body’s recovery process.
- It can convert damaged cells to stem cells (base cells that form new tissue).
- It works both internally and externally. May also be applied to damaged skin and on open wounds.
- Contributes to a good bowel movement and losing weight when overweight.
- It is a natural preservative.
How does Nano Silver kill bacteria?
Positively charged silver particles attract a variety of negatively charged single celled pathogens such a fungi, viruses, bacteria and other disease causing organisms.
The efficacy of the silver particles is in their ability to disable the pathogen’s oxygen metabolism enzymes thereby suffocating it.
Is Nano Silver the Same as Colloidal Silver?
From a medical perspective, nano silver is a significantly more refined product than what is traditionally called colloidal silver.
Colloidal silver particles are hundreds of times larger than nano particles, so large in fact that they can be seen in the colloidal solution. Nano particules, by contrast, are so small as to be invisible, forming a perfect solution. For a product which is taken internally, this means that nano silver offers a totally uniform liquid without the potential for clustering.

Are Silver nanoparticles harmful to humans?
Conventional medicine does not consider silver an essential mineral, nor supports any of the claims for silver’s health giving properties in the body. The US FDA has even taken action against some colloidal silver manufacturers for making various claims on their sites, so it is best to do you research carefully, and only follow the guidance of your registered health practitioner.
Is Nano Silver FDA approved?
Although colloidal silver was once commonly used and available in various conventional over the counter preparations, this changed in 1999 when the FDA ruled the product ‘unsafe.’
It is still possible to buy nano or colloidal silver from health companies without FDA approval.
What About Nano Silver and Cancer?
While this form of treatment is popular in some circles, the medical establishment remains firm on the lack evidence which demonstrates the efficacy of colloidal or nano silver as a treatment for cancer.
One study from the Journal of Experimental and Clinical Cancer Research (ref) made some positive conclusions about it’s potential, noting its lack of the conventional side affects of currently used cytotoxic agents.
Another paper from Leeds University showed beneficial results from silver complexes containing N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) ligands.
A more recent article from 2018 showed silver’s efficacy in disabling the energy centre of cancel cells as a means of inducing cell-death. ” The findings reported herein give further insight into the selective targeting of silver(I) phosphines and support our belief that this complex shows great promise as an effective chemotherapeutic drug. “
Does Nano Silver kill viruses?
Some studies offered evidence that silver does harm viral compounds (ref) however the conventional medical establishment remains sceptical, as any quick search of Google will confirm.
This article from the journal Critical Reviews in Microbiology does cite the “ntiviral activity of the metal nanoparticles, especially the mechanism of action of silver nanoparticles, against different viruses such HSV, HIV, HBV, MPV, RSV, etc”
Here is a research paper exploring the potential effects of nano silver against HIV-1.
As in all cases, you should do your own research on the matter
What are the side effects of colloidal silver?
Caution: when using silver for the first time, it is advisable to build it up slowly due to possible detoxification reactions such as red or itchy skin or a headache. It is known as the Jarisch-Herxheimer reaction. With repeated use, the maximum dose can usually be taken immediately.
If you’e interested in the specific doses recommended for silver, we recommend you consult with your health practitioner, or speak with us directly about this.
As per EU regulations, nano silver is only allowed to be recommended for topical use, and nothing in this site is intended to suggest otherwise.
What Qualities Should You Look for in Your Silver Product?

- The strength (ppm) must be between 10 and 20ppm.
- It should be at least 40 mv.
- The packaging material, preferably, should be dark violet glass.
- It should be almost fragrance, colorless, and tasteless.
- It should be produced with pure water.
- Form of the particles, if known. Preferably circular/circular.
