Directions for Use
Patch test prior to first use. Apply the natural Silver Wonder Gel to the crease of the elbow and wait 12 – 24 hours. Proceed only if there is no reaction.
Clean the wound with soap and water and pat dry. For adults and adolescents, apply the natural Silver Wonder Gel, as needed, up to 6 mL a day. Gently rub into affected area of skin – this is to ensure release of the active ingredient, ionic silver, from the gel matrix, onto the skin. It can be reapplied several times a day.
For external and occasional use only. Patch test before first use. Avoid contact with eyes and mucous membranes. Discontinue use and consult a health care practitioner if symptoms worsen, persists after 7 days, or if hypersensitivity/allergy occurs. Do not use if you are allergic to silver, pregnant or breastfeeding. Keep out of reach of children.
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:
Extra Strength 22 ppm – 191 litres
This has a built-in safety factor of 10. Which means that there is no risk of developing argyria even if consumption of Extra Strength Essential Silver™ (22 ppm) exceeds 1,910 litres over a lifetime.
