All you really need to do to achieve your wellness goals can be found documented throughout history.

The Powerful History of Silver


The ancient Romans, Greeks, Egyptians, and Phoenicians used silver vessels to preserve their drinking water. The silver metal cups react with the oxygen in the air and releasing trace amounts of bio-active silver ions into the water, keeping it free from harmful intruders.

Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, was the first to describe the antimicrobial benefits of silver. Silver preparations were used to promote wound healing and for the treatment of ulcers. Reportedly, the forms of silver Hippocrates used were ionic silver in the form of silver nitrate. This is based on published records in a later Roman pharmacopeia.

Here’s an interesting fact, ever heard of the phrase “born with a silver spoon in your mouth?” This dated back to the Middle Ages, when silverware, i.e. eating utensils made from silver metal, were used by nobility and middle-class society to help prevent the transmission of food-borne illness and also to convey social status. One could argue that modern society has been born with a silver spoon in its mouth; inheriting the health benefits of silver without fully appreciating the gift we have been given. For the most part, silver antimicrobial benefits experienced a bit of secret status!

Wound Healing

Silver found use in antimicrobial and wound-healing applications for battlefield medicine in the 1800s and early 1900s. Actually, prior to the invention of pasteurization, silver kept milk fresh when dropped right into the containers.


Today, silver is used to purify drinking water on the international space stationpromote wound healing, and in medical devices.

Natural Sources

I bet you didn’t realize that silver is a naturally-occurring element.

Sparkly Good News for Immune Support

To be clear, imbibing drinking water out of a silver goblet, while quite the “gangsta” look, is probably not the best way to build immune support. The good news is that today we have Sovereign Silver’s Bio-Active Silver Hydrosol,™ which represents the ultimate modern refinement of bio-active silver for immune support.

As far as wound healing, Sovereign Silver’s First Aid Gel combines the natural skin healing properties of homeopathic Argentum Metallicum metallic silver to help:

  • reduce topical pain
  • calm skin inflammation and eczema
  • fight minor skin infection
  • heal burns naturally
  • heal cuts, wounds, scrapes, and ulcerations

Bio-Active Silver Hydrosol’s purity and >98% bio-activity make it more effective at lower concentrations. In light of this, you can take less and get more support than colloidal silvers, which only contain inactive forms of the metal. Think back to the metal drinking cup. Truly, it wasn’t the metal that remained in the cup that preserved the drinking water; it was the bio-active silver ions that were in the water at very low levels. Remember, with Silver Hydrosol, less is more!
