Frequently Asked Questions

What is colloidal silver?

Colloidal Silver is simply silver ions and microscopic silver particles produced by electrolysis and suspended in distilled water. It is a mineral supplement that may provide support for your body’s natural immune system. It should not be confused with old style silver medicines that contained chemically or mechanically powdered silver.

What are the benefits of colloidal silver?
  1. Antibacterial
    Larry C. Ford, MD, documented over 650 different disease-causing pathogens that were destroyed in minutes when exposed to small amounts of silver.
  2. Wound Care/Skin Health
    Robert O. Becker, MD, says that colloidal silver stimulates healing in the skin and other soft tissues.
  3. Pink Eye/Ear Infections
    Pink eye is an inflamed mucous membrane that covers the eyeball and eyelid lining, and it’s primarily caused by a bacterial or viral infection. Colloidal silver can be used for prompt action against this irritating and highly infectious virus and bacteria.
  4. Antiviral
    Colloidal silver benefits can be experienced as an anti-viral for HIV/AIDS, pneumonia, herpes, shingles and warts. Dr. Martin Hum, from the Institute for Optimum Nutrition, lists colloidal silver as one of the natural remedies to stop viruses fast.
  5. Anti-Inflammatory
    Research is beginning to reflect what many people have already known anecdotally for years — that colloidal silver can reduce swelling, speed healing, and boosts cell recovery!
  6. Sinusitis
    Widely used to control sinus infections, colloidal silver can benefit people as a nasal spray, according to a study published in the International Forum for Allergy and Rhinology last year.
  7. Cold/Flu
    Some claim that colloidal silver helps prevent all types of flu, including swine flu, as well as the common cold.
  8. Pneumonia
    Typically, antibiotics are administered as the first line of defense, but when the pneumonia is viral, antibiotics won’t help in the least. Colloidal silver is a remarkable product to help fight against bronchitis and pneumonia when ingested internally, but an even more effective way to utilize it? Simply breathe it into your lungs.

How pure is the silver that Lectra Labs uses in making its colloidal silver?
While some use border line silver in the making of their colloidal silver, Lectra Labs uses only 99.9999 pure silver in its  manufacturing process.  Another way Lectra Labs goes the extra mile for purity in the making of its premium colloidal silver.
When using Lectra Labs flavored colloidal silver, how do I know it’s just not just flavored water.
Testing any colloidal silver is very easy.  All you need is a pocket laser pointer (which we sell at Lectra Labs).  Fill a drinking glass half way with Lectra Labs colloidal silver, then place the laser pointer next to the glass pointing to the opposite side of the glass.  While the laser is on shining through the colloidal silver you will see the laser beam through to the other side.  This is the reflection of the silver particles in the colloidal silver, proof the integrity of the Lectra Labs flavored colloidal silver is in tact.  Now fill another drinking glass with plain water and follow the same procedure, you will NOT see the laser beam in the water, proving the water is void of any silver.
