Feeling worse before feeling better?
The Herxheimer Reaction is a short-term (from days to a few weeks) detoxification reaction in the body. As the body detoxifies, it is not uncommon to experience flu-like symptoms including headache, joint and muscle pain, body aches, sore throat, general malaise, sweating, chills, itching, rashes, nausea or other symptoms.
The Herxheimer reaction can be lessened by drinking large quantities of distilled water to help purge the body of toxins. More details here...

What happens if the colloid freezes?
Freezing can damage a true colloid. A hard freeze, meaning frozen completely solid thru and thru with no liquid remaining,
will cause the suspended particles to fall to the bottom. After
thawing, if the color has changed to clear like water then the colloid
is irreversible damaged. This refers to Mesosilver and Mesogold primarily because they normally have a pronounced color, Mesocopper normally looks as clear as water. If the color is normal, then the colloid
is OK. Ionic silver solutions which contain most of the silver content
in the form of silver ions (dissolved silver) will not be harmed

is the shelf life of the Mesocolloids?
have an infinite shelf life. No refrigeration is required.
Mesosilver harm the beneficial bacteria in the gastrointestinal
The small intestine in a healthy individual is teaming with various strains of acidophilus which Mesosilver may potentially kill if it proceeded far enough through the GI tract. We believe that Mesosilver is absorbed in the first feet of the small intestine and therefore should not progress far enough through the GI to cause any problems..
It may well be that, in a healthy person whose small intestine
is fully colonized by various strains of acidophilus, there would
be no noticeable adverse affect from ingestion of colloidal
silver; but a person whose gut is already compromised due to some
other condition (yeast, diverticulitis, etc.) may find that they
should take an acidophilus supplement. Yeast is a natural occurrence
in everyone's intestinal tract. In a healthy person, yeast
may constitute about 5-10% of the total flora in the intestinal
tract, and as long as the acidophilus is the predominant constituent
in the small intestine, yeast cannot get out of control.
However, when Doctors prescribe one antibiotic after another
the antibiotics destroy all colonies of acidophilus in the
small intestine and the yeast can then grow completely out of control
very rapidly. Through the yeast's normal metabolic processes,
it creates a pH that is much more alkaline than is conducive to
the growth and proliferation of acidophilus, and the acidophilus
cannot reestablish itself once the yeast has taken over. Thus,
anything that has antibiotic properties that is taken over a long
period of time could potentially compromise the colonies of acidophilus
and allow yeast to take over. Basically, anything that reduces
the amount of healthy flora in my intestinal tract will only serve
to assist the yeast.
It is estimated that 50% or more of the U.S. population have yeast
overgrowth to one extent or another, though most don't know it (they
long have since forgotten what it was like to have a healthy intestinal
tract, and attribute their discomforts to age). Subsequently, we
cannot rely on those taking our product to have healthy intestinal
tracts prior to taking our product, and there is the potential that colloidal silver
could further deteriorate the acidophilus. In practice, very few users have reported any problems in their GI tract as a result of using Mesosilver. Those that believe they have experienced a change in their GI tract have used an acidophilus supplements on an occasional basis and experienced no further difficulty.
Mesosilver and Mesogold be taken along with prescription drugs?
and Mesogold do not interfere with or interact with medications.
Both gold and silver are noble
metals, which means they do not readily combine with
other substances to form compounds, so they do not interact with
medications, herbs, or other supplements.
Can Mesosilver and Mesogold be given to infants and children?
Yes. As a general
rule dosage should be adjusted for the reduced body weight of children
and infants. Dosage of one teaspoon for every 70 pounds of body
weight is generally appropriate.
Mesosilver be used for pets and large animals?
is commonly used on pets and large animals for many infections,
such as ringworm, staph infections, and eye infections.
the Mesocolloids can be taken together, or at the same time?
Yes. Since the
Mesocolloids are all true colloids, meaning
they are not ionic solutions, they can be taken together without
are the Mesocolloids shipped in plastic bottles when many other
companies say that only glass should be used?
colloids consists of particles, not ions,
and do not require glass bottles. Our products are shipped in PET
plastic bottles. PET stands for polyethylene terephthalate, a form
of polyester. PET is commonly used to package soft drinks, water,
and fruit juice. PET plastic bottles are the single most prevalent
beverage bottle produced in the world today. A product that must
stored in a glass bottle is most certainly an ionic product, not
a true colloid.
are the Mesocolloids sold in clear bottles, not amber or blue colored
bottles like many other products?
are not photosensitive.
silver solutions produced by generators used by home hobbyists
tend to be photosensitive and will deteriorate over a short period
of time if not shielded from visible light. By storing such solutions
in amber bottles the deterioration is reduced. The most photosensitive
solutions are produced using the low voltage DC process, often by
using several 9 volt batteries. The requirement for an amber bottle
indicates a photosensitive, unstable solution. Only the lowest quality
solutions are photosensitive.
products are not photosensitive and do not require an amber bottle.
Mesosilver cause Argyria?
No, Mesosilver does not cause Argyria. Argyria
is a discoloration of the skin wherein the skin turns a blue-grey
color as a result of over exposure to certain forms of silver. Argyria
is known to be caused by ingesting; 1) silver salts (compounds)
such as silver nitrate, 2) high concentrations of ionic silver,
3) protein based silver products aka "silver protein" or "mild silver protein", 4) Inhalation of high concentrations of
silver dust as found in silver mines and silver refining operations.
Argyria is not caused by true silver colloids which consist of nanometer
sized particles of silver in pure water. More
Mesosilver be taken by a nursing mother?
We do not have
any scientific studies that can prove that Mesosilver is safe to
use by a nursing mother. It is believed to be safe and many users
have used it while nursing. No adverse effects have ever been reported
for mother or child.
Mesosilver safe to take during pregnancy?
We do not have
any scientific studies that can prove that Mesosilver is safe to
use during pregnancy. It is believed to be safe and many users have
used it during pregnancy. No adverse effects have ever been reported.
Mesosilver and Mesogold toxic?
and Mesosilver are noble metals and are non-toxic. See heavy metal
is a heavy metal? It depends on who you ask!
Chemistry International Vol 23, No.6 November 2001 - "Heavy
Metals" - A Meaningless Term
Over the past
two decades, the term "heavy metals" has been used increasingly
in various publications and in legislation related to chemical hazards
and the safe use of chemicals. It is often used as a group name
for metals and semimetals (metalloids) that have been associated
with contamination and potential toxicity or ecotoxicity. At the
same time, legal regulations often specify a list of heavy metals
to which they apply. Such lists may differ from one set of regulations
to the other, or the term may be used without specifying which heavy
metals are covered. In other words, the term "heavy metals"
has been used inconsistently. This practice has led to general confusion
regarding the significance of the term. The inconsistent use of
the term "heavy metals" reflects inconsistency in the
scientific literature. It is, therefore, necessary to review the
usage that has developed for the term, paying particular attention
to its relationship to fundamental chemistry. Without care for the
scientific fundamentals, confused thought is likely to prevent advances
in scientific knowledge and to lead to bad legislation and to generally
1.) A generalized definition in common use: One of 23 chemical
elements that has a specific gravity (a measure of density) at least
five times that of water.
2.) Definition according to OSHA - The term "Heavy
Metals" is generally interpreted to include those metals from
periodic table groups IIA through VIA. The semi-metallic elements
boron, arsenic, selenium, and tellurium are often included in this
classification. At trace levels, many of these elements are necessary
to support life. However, at elevated levels they become toxic,
may build up in biological systems, and become a significant health
3.) Definition used by many - The term heavy metal refers
to any metallic chemical element that has a relatively high density
and is toxic, highly toxic or poisonous at low concentrations. Examples
of heavy metals include mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd), arsenic (As),
chromium (Cr), thallium (Tl), and lead (Pb).
are dangerous because they tend to bioaccumulate. For example, marine
organisms can consume a particularly dangerous form of mercury called
methyl mercury. When fish eat these organisms, the methyl mercury
is not excreted, but retained in bodily tissues. The older the fish
and the more contaminated organisms it has consumed, the greater
the amount of methyl mercury in its tissues. When another fish eats
the first fish, the accumulated methyl mercury is passed up the food
chain, eventually becoming hundreds or thousands of times its original
concentration. Any organism at the top of the food chain (humans,
polar bears etc.) faces a serious risk of mercury poisoning by eating
on heavy metals here.
Mesosilver or Mesogold cause heavy metal poisoning?
No. By some
definitions silver is considered a heavy metal, but it is also a
metal. The noble metals are gold, silver, and
the platinum group of six metals which includes platinum, rhodium,
palladium, ruthenium, osmium, and iridium. When used as dietary
supplements the noble metals do not cause heavy metal poisoning.
silver or gold accumulate in the organs of the body?
No. The metallic
particles contained in Mesosilver and Mesogold are in the form of
nanometer sized particles. These particles do not accumulate in
body tissues or any organs. The nanoparticles are passed out of
the body with waste within a few days of being ingested.
are these products not FDA approved?
do not require FDA approval.
The U. S. Congress
passed the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA) of
1994 which spells out the regulations as they apply to dietary supplements.
The provisions of DSHEA define dietary supplements and dietary ingredients;
establish a new framework for assuring safety; outline guidelines
for literature displayed where supplements are sold; provide for
use of claims and nutritional support statements; require ingredient
and nutrition labeling; and grant FDA the authority to establish
good manufacturing practice (GMP) regulations. The law also requires
formation of an executive level Commission on Dietary Supplement
Labels and an Office of Dietary Supplements within the National
Institutes of Health.
are the details of DSHEA on the FDA web site.
By law (DSHEA),
the manufacturer is responsible for ensuring that its dietary supplement
products are safe before they are marketed. Unlike drug products
that must be proven safe and effective for their intended use before
marketing, there are no provisions in the law for FDA to "approve"
dietary supplements for safety or effectiveness before they reach
the consumer. Also unlike drug products, manufacturers and distributors
of dietary supplements are not currently required by law to record,
investigate or forward to FDA any reports they receive of injuries
or illnesses that may be related to the use of their products. Under
DSHEA, once the product is marketed, FDA has the responsibility
for showing that a dietary supplement is "unsafe," before
it can take action to restrict the product's use or removal from

would cause Mesosilver to turn clear like water?
turn clear as water if it is frozen solid or contaminated in use.
To prevent contamination:
- only pour
out of the bottle, never pour back into the bottle.
- never put
anything in the bottle such as a Q-Tip, tube, or straw.
- do not drink
from the bottle.
- do not touch
the inside of the bottle cap.
- do not soak
cotton balls by placing over the bottle opening.
