There are many health benefits to using colloidal silver. For instance, medical uses of silver are used in hospitals for the medical treatment of people who have suffered by burns. By using colloidal silver, the growth of scar tissue can be prevented. This is because of its proven ability to stimulate the regeneration of human cells in the skin.
The medical uses of silver include its incorporation into wound dressings, and its use as an antibiotic coating in medical devices. While wound dressings containing silver sulfadiazine or silver nanomaterials may be used to treat external infections, there is little evidence to support their use. Silver is also used in some medical applications, such as urinary catheters and endotracheal breathing tubes, where there is tentative evidence that it is effective in reducing catheter-related urinary tract infections and ventilator-associated pneumonia respectively. The silver ion (Ag+) is bioactive and in sufficient concentration readily kills bacteria in vitro. Silver and silver nanoparticles are used as an antimicrobial in a variety of industrial, healthcare and domestic applications.
