Safety of Essential Silver: Essential Silver™ is a safe daily dietary supplement. It is non-toxic(1) and scientific studies have shown that there are no adverse effects associated with ingestion of silver supplements like Essential Silver™(1,2), when taken as recommended. It does not kill good bacteria(3) nor cause argyria (greying of the skin)(4). It is not known to be a cumulative toxin(2).
Essential Silver™ has been safely consumed for over a decade without any safety concerns by Health Canada. It is nearly impossible to ingest too much dietary silver when it is taken as recommended. The U.S. Environmental Protections Agency (EPA) established a safe maximum dose consumed over 70 years for a person who weighs 154 pounds(5):
Safe Maximum Lifetime Dosage: Ultra Strength 50 ppm – 77 litres
This has a built-in safety factor of 10. Which means that there is no risk of developing argyria even if consumption of Ultra Strength Essential Silver™ (50 ppm) exceeds 770 litres over a lifetime.
