I have been using a silver product that my mother in law gets for me. It was sold under the name Silver sol and now it is labeled One silver solution.

Anyway I have noticed that the One silver solution is 10 ppm and when I ran out I purchased some regular colloidal silver and it is 250 ppm. That's a pretty big difference in ppm.

I know the One silver solution is supposed to be special or different. I was just wondering if anyone else uses this and if they know what is different about the One silver solution/Silver sol compared to colloidal silver??

I think the lower the PPM the better. The higher PPM can cause argyria.I am not an expert but have read about it on the links above.

These links are from the book top 10 lyme disease treatmnets.

Hope this helps.

250 is smaller particles, the smaller the better.

I am pretty sure that the higher the ppm the more risk of it not truly being a colloidal silver but a mild silver protein which can cause health risks.

I know that the higher the particle surface area is better better not necessarily the ppm there is a good explanation and graph on the particle surface area.
The metal concentration in parts-per-million (ppm) expresses the weight of the metal vs. the weight of the liquid it is suspended in. Particle concentration can be a very confusing measurement when comparing colloidal silver products because colloids having very large particles can have a high concentration of metal (ppm) but a very low particle surface area. Concentration (ppm) by itself is not what determines colloidal effectiveness; it is only the particle surface area that does.
