Silver as a Weapon Against Viruses and Bacteria


As a metal, silver has significant health benefits that have been used across cultures for centuries. Silver has a proven track record as a powerful antimicrobial agent fighting infections and aiding in cold and flu prevention, wound healing, and more.

Silver also helps with internal heat regulation and circulation. Many have reported improvements in energy levels and balance in moods after wearing silver, as its natural properties may offset outside electrical disturbances, improve circulation and overall body temperature balance, and help maintain cleanliness and immunity.

Silver has a long history in antibiotics and sterilization, with many women and men wearing silver jewelry to stave off infection, cold/flu symptoms, and any other virus, bacteria, etc. This health benefit is one of the reasons why so many manufacturers choose to make medical devices and tools out of silver.

Silver also purportedly keeps our blood vessels elastic, which enables it to play a role in bone formation and healing, as well as skin maintenance and repair.

Finally, silver has a directly tangible benefit in helping us to avoid potentially toxic substances — as a metal, silver reacts and turns color when it encounters many other chemicals that are known toxins.

For instance, if your silver jewelry turns blue when you wear it for too long, this could indicate the presence of elevated levels of sodium in your body. Seeing a blue piece of silver jewelry could serve as a reminder to cut back on salty snacks!

Some people even go beyond jewelry to enjoy the health benefits of silver. For example, some people wear silver-lined sleep masks to improve their night’s rest or silver-lined gloves to wear while typing on a laptop to disrupt the transmission of electronic signals from technology into the body.

Fashion designers have even started to explore the concept of incorporating this precious metal into clothing materials so people can enjoy the many health benefits of silver on a daily basis.

This may sound like a lot of mumbo jumbo to some, but silver has a distinctly scientific basis for its health benefits derived from its electrical and thermal conductivity.

Positively-charged silver ions create a conductive field that reflects electromagnetic radiation away from the body, which stimulates the body’s natural conductivity and improves blood circulation, body temperature balance, and general well-being.

Positively charged silver ions also bind to negatively charged oxygen receptors in bacteria, which is why silver can fight against harmful infection and disease.

For those that are skeptical, consider that researchers at the University of Southampton have proven that wearing a specific type of silver ring can help alleviate some symptoms of arthritis in the hands.

The results of this study revealed that wearing these specially designed silver splints helped reduce pain in addition to preventing hyperextension in the finger joints, which is common in those who suffer from rheumatoid arthritis. The researchers found that wearing these silver jewelry pieces also helped restore stability and range of motion in the inflamed joints.
