Ionic vs inert. Ionic silver loses its properties immediately as silver becomes silver chloride. Inert (AGNP) retains its silver nanoparticle form, remaining effective while moving through the digestive tract. Most silver on the market is ionic.
I would love it if all silver was equal. The reality is that ionic silver converts to silver chloride as soon as we ingest it. Mesosilver is inert…there is no binding or conversion taking place, making it highly bioavailable.
Ionic silver converts to silver chloride as soon as we ingest it. Mesosilver is inert – there is no binding or conversion taking place with mesosilver, making it highly bioavailable. Colloidal silver is unchanged so it reaches the systemic circulation. It, therefore, absorbs into the bloodstream. Colloidal silver nano particles are absorbed in the first few feet of the small intestine.
Ionic silver does not reach the bloodstream unchanged because the silver ions are converted into silver chloride. This means the bioavailability of ionic silver is zero because none of the silver ions arrive unchanged in systemic circulation.
