When considering the colloidal silver dosage recommendations, the World Health Organizations Guidelines for Drinking Water Quality states "It is unnecessary to recommend any health‐based guidelines for silver as it is not hazardous to human health."
According to EPA, the daily dose believed to be safe is 350mcg of colloidal silver daily, for up to 70 years.
The EPA also estimates that a person could safely take up to 5mcg of colloidal silver per kilogram of body weight each day without side effects. 1 kilogram = 2.20462262 pounds. 5mcg / kg = 2.26796mcg/pound.
At 6 ppm (parts per million), our colloidal silver contains 30 mcg's of silver per teaspoon, 90 mcg's per tablespoon, and 177 mcg per 1 oz. shot glass.
Ok, that's nice, now how much do I take?
To determine the amount of colloidal silver dosage needed, begin with the suggested amount of 100mcg per day (roughly 3 teaspoons of our colloidal silver hydrosol product). Each 16.9 oz bottle of our product is equal to about 32 daily servings at 100 mcg/day dosage. One bottle equals a one month's supply PER PERSON. Higher doses are needed to fight colds and flus. See below for more information.
Individual response may vary from the average amount of colloidal silver needed for optimum benefit, for most people. Some people will require less, and others will find they need to take more.
Use half the suggested amount for young children, and one fourth for babies.
After taking 100mcg of Colloidal Silver daily for four days, adults may cut back to 50mcg daily (and proportionally, by body weight, for children)
The average adult will typically consume from 1500mcg to 3000mcg of colloidal silver monthly. Again, one of our 16.9 oz. bottles is roughly a month's supply per person providing 3000 mcg per month.
You will need to determine what is effective for you, which may be more, or less.
These guidelines are independent of the concentration, or quality of the Colloidal Silver being consumed. Concentration, and Quality, will affect the actual quantity required, to produce the specific optimum dose one wishes to maintain.
In the event a person begins taking colloidal silver while having a cold or flu, or for any other virus, bacteria or fungus, the daily amount should begin with triple the dosage.
Once well, revert to the standard colloidal silver dosage.
Other Sources suggest:
Take 75mcg per day as a preventative.
Take double your daily amount, or 150mcg per day during an epidemic, as a preventative.
Take 200mcg to 300mcg per day or 2 ²/₃ to 4 times your daily amount for treatment of an illness.
These are merely provide a guideline, by which to start from.
The following information may be informative:
In 1940, under normal circumstances, the average daily intake of fruits and vegetables would provide between 50 and 100mcg of silver, as a trace element.
Since that time, commercial farm soils have become extremely deficient in trace minerals.
According to the Earth Summit Report, issued in 1992, the levels of soil based minerals in North America have dropped over 85%, in the last 100 years.
Two teaspoons of high quality 6 PPM colloidal silver dosage provides about 60 mcg of silver, and could be considered a "nutritional" amount, if taken on a daily basis.
Any amount above four teaspoons per day, or 100mcg, might be considered a "therapeutic" amount.
Some people will feel achy and sluggish, soon after, to about the third or fourth day after beginning colloidal silver hydrosol daily.
This is called the Herxheimer Effect. It's good! It's a detox!
This is when the body expels a great many entrenched toxins at once. The eliminatory organs can become overloaded, in which case it is recommended to drink lots of extra
water to help one’s body flush out the toxins.
Drinking lots of water will lessen the symptoms rapidly.
If this happens to you, rejoice! It means the colloidal silver hydrosol is working and will pass in a few days! Don't stop taking it! Symptoms may even include feeling like you have the flu. Ride it out, drinking lots and lots of clean water while eating healthy foods.
If a person, taking the daily amount, finds that he or she will still occasionally have an infection, one may increase, and even quadruple the Suggested Daily Dose. There should be no danger of overdosing; however, very few people ever need four times the Suggested
When you are taking the proper Daily Dose, you should be maintaining a level, where you no longer experience Infections, Colds or Flu.
Since prevention is the idea here, one may err on the side of safety, by taking slightly more than a perfect minimum. One never knows when there may be a sudden major outbreak of some pathogen, in such numbers as to overwhelm the combined defenses of an immune system, fortified with only a minimum level of colloidal silver.
If an attack of pathogens happens to be stronger than the immediate combined defense level of the body's natural immune system, plus a particular level of daily colloidal silver, one may feel some illness, or worse.
With kids in school, during Cold and Flu season, you will probably want to take more, and maintain a higher level.
"At the first sign of the flu or a scratchy throat, this is my go-to helper! I use your colloidal silver along with extra Vitamin C and Echinacea and have been able to stop using regular antibiotics!
Thanks for a great product and service!"

"I found a really good and inexpensive ($25) ultrasonic nebulizer on ebay. It works fantastic!
It takes about 15 minutes to inhale about a 3 teaspoon dose. I like to ingest it this way especially when I'm fighting off a chest cold."
