This is our go-to product for boosting the immune system when faced with any challenges: viruses, bacteria, & parasites — Marie Pace, DNM, CNC, HHP
Argentyn 23 is the ultimate, modern refinement of colloidal silver, which was used for centuries to safeguard human health. Recommended by both medical and naturopathic doctors.
Argentyn 23® is a professional grade of silver hydrosol which is available only through licensed health care practitioners. Argentyn 23 represents the ultimate refinement and most significant breakthrough in colloidal technology, having consistently produced the smallest particles ever seen in colloidal silver products, with the most unique charge attributes (98% positively charged). The manufacturing technique is proprietary but particle size and particle charge have been confirmed by third party laboratories and universities. Argentyn 23 does not use additives or stabilizers, nor does it contain salts or proteins (often used to keep silver in suspension, but which create silver compounds). It is pure, meaning it contains only 99.999% pure silver suspended in pharmaceutical grade purified water. No other manufacturer can make these claims and support them with evidence.
What does “colloidal” really mean? Are all colloidal silvers the same?
The term colloidal simply means it is a liquid with particles. Colloidal silver means it is a liquid with a suspension of silver particles plus silver ions. Despite the common term colloidal, the products are all very different, with varying particle sizes, charge and purity. The ratio of each can vary widely, and that variation determines quality and efficacy.
You may have heard the marketing term “true colloidal silver.” Like the overused word “natural” on food packaging, “true” has no scientific definition and is therefore meaningless. Like the word “natural,” it gives the appearance of being superior when really it is misleading because there is nothing special about it.
Colloidal silver may have impurities and a wide variation of particle sizes, making it difficult to predict at what dose it is potentially toxic. Colloidal silver made at home is the worst example, as it is the type most likely to cause skin discoloration.
Silver hydrosol, is different from colloidal silver. It may be found on the shelf next to other colloidal silver brands, but technically, it is Bio-Active Silver Hydrosol. Unlike the generic term colloidal, there are specific definitions that describe its superior qualities.
What is Hydrosol?
A hydrosol is a liquid version of an ingredient that has been solubilized into microscopic particles and suspended in water (and is, therefore, water soluble). The silver particles in the Argentyn Silver are solubilized to smaller than 1 nanometer (one billionth of a meter, or 100,000X smaller than the diameter of a human hair). Therefore the silver is evenly distributed throughout the suspension.
What is Bio-Active?
Bio-Active means that positively charged ions and nanoparticles (a.k.a. extremely small colloids) are more energetic and active, making them more effective for their purpose. Most colloidal silver products have much lower ratios of positively charged particles and are therefore less effective than Bio-Active Silver Hydrosol which is >98% bio-active!

Argentyn 23 is a professional-quality immune booster that can help the whole family.*
You may have heard some negative things about “colloidal silver.” That’s because some manufacturers distributed products that were contaminated by the presence of salt, protein, compounds and stabilizers. All those things can degrade the silver while making it potentially toxic.*
But with Argentyn 23 you have no need to worry. There are no added salts or proteins. You’ll only find pure silver in pharmaceutical-grade water. The liquid is bottled in amber glass to maintain purity.*
- Intended for immune system support
- 96% actively charged and energized silver particles (Ag+)
- Extremely small particle size of 0.0008 microns for easy absorption and excretion
- No added salts or proteins. 99.999% Pure; only 2 ingredients: 99.999% pure silver and water that meets USP-NF standards for pharmaceutical-grade purified water.
- Product is totally vegan, allergen, gluten and GMO free.
This Bio-Active Silver Hydrosol represents the most refined and purified colloidal silver you can buy. Positively charged silver ions, or cations, remain in suspension and keep their active state so they can go to work — helping your body fight potentially harmful viruses, bacteria and fungi.
Plus, Argentyn 23 has virtually no taste or scent. It’s easy to swallow and doesn’t leave a sticky mess or stains. The liquid basically behaves like water.
Actively charged >98% bio-active silver ions and nanoclusters, making it exponentially more powerful than other brands.
Easily absorbed – the smaller the particle size, the easier it is for the body to absorb and eliminate. Argentyn 23 features an unprecedented particle size as small as 0.8 nanometers, verified by 3rd party. No other silver can prove the same.
Perfectly safe! When it comes to concentration, more is not always better. Our tiny particle size yields greater surface area and higher efficacy, making our 23 PPM (parts per million) product more effective than brands that contain up to 1,000ppm! Taken 3 times a day for 70 years, Argentyn still falls below the EPA daily oral reference dose for silver!
Naturally vegan, gluten free, allergen and GMO free. Only 2 ingredients: 99.9999% pure silver and pharmaceutical-grade purified water.
NEVER STORE IN REFRIGERATOR
MYTH: Higher concentration of silver is better.
- Fact: Never take more than necessary. (Do you take a 10,000mg aspirin?)
- A common myth is that “more is always better.” In the case of colloidal silver, this is a false belief that higher concentration means greater efficacy. Swiss botanist Karl Wilhelm von Nägeli defined the oligodynamic effect (Greek: oligos = few, dynamis = force) in 1893 to describe how extremely low metal ion concentrations exert potent biocidal activity, a fact known to this day.
- Fact: Bio–active silver is what provides immune support*. Labels report total silver concentration, but do not report total BIO-ACTIVE silver concentration.
- Taking silver is most helpful if it is in the right form – the bio-active form. This means positively charged, and a mixture of positively charge ions and the smallest particles possible (silver nanoclusters).
- Consider the difference between taking bio-active silver vs. a product with a high concentration of silver that is not bio-active. Imagine that someone gave you a key ring with 10,000 keys, but only one of them opened the lock on the door you need to enter. Now imagine that someone gave you a key ring with 1 key on it that worked. You’d have more keys on the first ring, but all but one would be wasted because they don’t work. Less is more.
MYTH: Colloidal silver should be yellow (AKA “true colloidal silver”).
- Fact: Larger nanoparticles absorb some wavelengths of visible light through a phenomenon called Surface Plasmon Resonance.
- Fact: Smaller nanoparticles with diameters < 5 nm are “subplasmonic” and do not absorb visible light.
- The smaller the particle, the greater the surface area (available for interaction). Smaller particles are easier for the body to absorb, process and eliminate.
MYTH: It’s better to make your own.
- Fact: while homemade is inexpensive, you get what you pay for!
- Just do a simple online search and you will find readily available colloidal silver generators and, for pennies on the dollar, you can make your own at home. This is dangerous. There is very poor control over the total silver concentration. It is extremely challenging to verify a consistent particle size with DIY colloidal silver, and therefore there are risks. At the least, you will need to take more to achieve the same effect of a high-quality silver product, because you won’t be able to achieve a consistently small enough particle size to be able to maximize surface area. You will be consuming something with unknown and much higher total silver concentration, which is therefore a greater toxicity risk. In fact, most cases of argyria have resulted from using homemade colloidal silver over extended periods of time.
- Ask yourself this: Would you make aspirin in your garage and take it if you had a headache? You most likely prefer aspirin that was manufactured in a clean, regulated environment in order to guarantee the safest product with the best quality and efficacy.
MYTH: A TDS Meter can measure the concentration of colloidal silver, including DIY colloidal silver.
- Fact: Sellers of silver generators suggest using a TDS meter to determine concentration of silver in homemade colloidal silver, but these will not give an accurate reading.
- Fact: TDS meters measure the conductivity of water, then estimate the amount of dissolved solids based on assumptions that are false for colloidal silver and silver hydrosols.
- This is a grossly inadequate way to determine the concentration of silver in your (or anyone else’s) product. What a TDS meter measures is conductivity, and then it estimates concentration based on that reading. TDS meters ignore colloidal particles and are not appropriate for this type of analysis
MYTH: All colloidal silver is the same.
- Fact: All colloidal silver will ‘work’ to some extent, but all are not created equal. Just like bottled water may hydrate you, but not all provide nutrients or are devoid of toxins.
- Colloidal silver encompasses a broad array of products and chemical formulations that have varying degrees of known toxicity and efficacy. We have proven how Bio-Active Silver Hydrosol™ is the safest* and most effective* form of silver ever developed.
MYTH: Colloidal silver will turn me blue. (Or: Silver is toxic.)
- Fact: Everything can be toxic at a certain amount.
- When assessing the toxicity and/or safety of any chemical, a number of factors must be considered, the most important of which is concentration. Chlorine, as a prime example, is an extremely caustic chemical with an infinite list of terrible side effects and dangers, yet it is used to keep the world’s water supply clean and, when bound with sodium, exists in the salt on your dinner table. Most chemicals, including the components of the air we breathe, are toxic at the wrong concentration.
As with any medication or dietary supplement, the success of silver hydrosol as a supplement for Immune Support* depends on correct usage. The concentration of silver in our product is so low that one could safely* take 7 teaspoons every day for 70 years and never reach what even the EPA considers to be the lowest observed adverse effect level (LOAEL), a conservative minimum recommended amount. (Note: The EPA guidelines are based on an average adult weight of 70 kg or 154 pounds.
MYTH: Colloidal silver is snake oil.
- Fact: Consumers and doctors have been using silver in one form or another for thousands of years and colloidal silver since the late 1800s.
- There is plenty of proof that colloidal silver works, and scientific and medical literature for more than a century has consistently acknowledged the strong antimicrobial activity of silver in its various forms.
MYTH: Silver has no functional role in the body and no therapeutic value.
- Fact: Silver should be considered a trace mineral.
- Although many [allopathic] doctors and regulatory agencies still claim that silver – or colloidal silver, specifically – has no functional role or therapeutic value, Health Canada (equivalent to the FDA in the USA) has recognized Sovereign Silver and its sister brand for professionals, Argentyn 23, as “Trace Elements,” after performing a thorough evaluation of efficacy and safety. Trace elements (like copper, zinc, iron, etc.) are essential for the maintenance of good health.
MYTH: Silver may harm my gut flora.
- Fact: Silver does not alter the distribution of species in the gut microbiome*. you may take our ALIVE probiotic along with silver.
