The Science of Silver

What’s so special about silver? Most of us would think about the visual appeal of silver, for jewelry and other decorative applications, if we were asked that question. Dr. Sheryl Ronald has a very different perspective. Sheryl is a microbiologist and has spent years working in labs studying microscopic organisms and investigating the effects of antibiotics on microorganisms. Sheryl’s work inspired her interest in silver, which has been shown to have antimicrobial and bacteria-killing properties when it’s coated on household devices like a toothbrush. Sheryl enlisted a colleague, Dr. Mark Farinha, a professor of microbiology and immunology, to develop a line of nutritional supplements and skincare products that incorporate small doses of silver. Building on the work that Dr. Farinha did, Sheryl launched Renewal Science, which offers silver hydrosols and blended silver products designed to provide immune support and promote healthy living. The blended silver nutraceuticals from Renewal Science include a liquid supplement that can be ingested; a gel and salve for topical applications; and sprays that can be applied to the skin, nose and throat. Safe for people, children and pets, all the products contains only natural ingredients. As an alternative to conventional options, we’ve really taken a shine to Renewal Science’s natural approach to first aid, skincare, and immune support. A little silver goes a long way.

    Hello from Renewal Science! Thanks to the Daily Grommet for inviting us to be here. We want to offer you some new products to help support your immune system, care for your skin and provide allergy symptom relief.

    As research scientists concerned for the health and wellbeing of our global community, we decided to develop a line of products using silver and aloe. Our raw materials are sourced responsibly from within the USA and are traditionally known worldwide for their health benefits. What’s different is the way we can make our products safely and naturally using very small particles of bioavailable silver.

    Renewal Silver immune support supplements, gels and sprays are perfect for wellness and optimal immune function and are safe for the whole family, including pets. Support your immune system and care for your skin naturally!

    My family (ages 4 months-91 years) has used all of the products offered by Renewal Science over the years and have been very pleased with the results. I feel safe using Renewal Science's products because they contain very small particles of silver compared to other brands available in the market.

    Do you have to worry about metal toxicity if you are spraying silver on your mucous membranes? Same thing if you are putting it on open skin? Once in a while might be OK, but if you have a jar or bottle of a silver product, you're going to use it repeatedly over a somewhat short period of time. I don't know how toxic silver is, but I know many other metals accumulate in body tissue and cause problems.

    @ Laura Hi Laura There are no cases of metal toxicity or discoloration ever reported using current standards of topical preparations. Medical silver creams (including the FDA-approved one I developed with Dr. Farinha which is still available by prescription in hospitals) are used routinely in hospitals for burns, and also are used extensively as coatings on medical devices.

    Thanks for your question.

    I've been using for over a year now a nano-silver (Ionized?) and distilled water product with the brand name **. After brushing my teeth every morning I rinse with and swallow about a tablespoon of silver. I've saved 2 teeth from pulling; my dentist is amazed. I use it on scratches, bug bites, allergic skin reactions; the pain is gone almost immediately and heeling is twice as fast! I use it in my nose and eyes. I've used it with my rabbits; my sister uses it with her horses. I have work mates who also swear by their "silver"! And so do I.

    I'm curious, Dr. Ronald as to if the products come with user explanations? For example, other than a subtitle of 'skin care' on a bottle, will there be information about the product that also details what manner of 'skin care'? For example, this can treat acne if applied 2 x a day. or for prevention/treatment of sunburn, etc..?

    Also, I'd be interested in purchasing perhaps one bottle rather than a set - is this possible?

    Thank you,

    @Catherine Hamel: These products come with brochures which will point you in the right direction but do not have any specific information regarding prevention or treatment. We follow EPA government guidelines for safety. Our products have only natural ingredients and can be applied as often as needed.

    I've been Googling around about the various health risks and potential dangers of nanosilver, and invite others to do so as well. At the very least, this seems to me to be a good argument for the application of the Precautionary Principle, since it is clear that there is far too little known about potential long-term health risks of nanosilver to justify such enthusiastic endorsement here!

    I'll be curious to see if this comment gets published on the Grommet website, of which I'm a big fan, by the way.

    If you suffer from cold sores or fever blisters I can wholeheartedly recommend Renewal Science Silver Alow Salve. I have had this problem all of life and wass using a prescription salve that worked sometimes and was not very pleasant to use. Then I discovered Silver Aloe Salve. It is more effective, does a better job of containing the sores and is much more pleasant to use. I layer it throughout the day at the first sign of a lesion. It is wonderful! I am a convert!
