Throughout history silver has been used for treating various diseases and infections, to disinfect water and food, as well as treat burns and wounds.

A cutting-edge wound healing technology where, the attack is soft on the skin but harsh and on the bacteria can be seen in silver ion healing. The charged silver ions are positive in nature, and therefore they naturally attach themselves to the negatively charged dirt and bacteria particles on the wound. What this does for faster healing of the wound is,

Inhibition of DNA replication – Bacteria cannot multiply therefore reducing the risk of infection.

Destruction of cell membranes The cell membranes of a wide spectrum of bacteria can be broken down causing their elimination.

Inhibition of enzymes – This prevents the spreading of these bacteria any further as it destroys their energy sources, inhibits movement and replication.
