According to Dr. Rustum Roy (Penn State University) silver is more broad-spectrum than anything found in the drug world or nature. This means structured silver kills more than just a tiny segment of bacteria, like antibiotics do. Structured silver kills all the bacteria except the healthy (probiotic) bacteria. This can happen because the healthy flora (lactobacillus) secretes a protective layer or lactobacillus around itself to protect against the acidic stomach acids. This protective layer prohibits the silver from rupturing the cell membrane because it cannot penetrate through the lactobacillus outer coating. This is demonstrated when a person takes antibiotics, and the action of the drugs kill the healthy flora, resulting in diarrhea. This is not seen when a person takes a quadruple dose of structured silver. In fact I have swallowed 8 ounces at one time (a 48 times normal dose) and never produced diarrhea. Remember it is the structured silver that improves antibiotic function and makes antibiotics up to ten times stronger when taken with structured silver. It should be noted that a person taking silver daily (1 teaspoon 1-3 times a day) should destroy bacterium, viruses and yeast that cause the majority of illnesses, so you may never need to take an antibiotic again. According to a study performed by Nelson Labs, structured silver was found to completely kill all tested bacteria and cause no resistance. This is important because it proves that structured silver is not going to cause the bacteria to get stronger or have the problems that plague antibiotic drugs.
