Production of High-ppm CS with Orchestra

As CS is so useful in a USA bug-out bag, otherwise known in Britain as a gentleman’s picnic hamper, I thought I would add some notes for the production of Cinnamon-reduced CS at 100 ppm.
The purpose of such high-ppm CS is NOT for taking a higher amount of Silver in the same dose. It is for the purpose of ease of transport. The resulting product can be diluted with any reasonably clean water to give standard 20 ppm bright-yellow CS, so two half-litres of 100 ppm CS are equivalent to just over a gallon (five litres) of 20 ppm CS, a very useful saving in weight and cost of distilled water.
The process is remarkably similar to production of 20 ppm cinnamon-reduced CS but with each 20 ppm run repeated five times. The set-up is much the same as that on the previous posting about cinnamon-reduced CS, but you will need a few extra items.
First, hire an orchestra. They will need good nerves. Then you will need to hire a Monster. These are available from Pinewood Studios for a reasonable sum, but they insist that the Monster must be accompanied by a wrangler, known in the trade as a Henchman, hired at extra cost. You will need a laboratory with a skylight giving a view of the night sky.
A set of tables giving the phases of the moon is highly desirable, and the weather forecast can be obtained in the UK Met Office on Tel: +441392885680. You will need to pick a night with a violent thunderstorm for your experiment.
Obtain the services of a good roofer, and engage him to attach a stout copper lightning-conductor to the chimney, or if you are fortunate in your choice of home, upon the battlements.
On the chosen night, go out after dark and soundly thrash your Werewolf if he disturbs the local peasants too much. In the event that the peasantry gather with pitchforks and scythes outside the curtilage, an appearance upon the roof of your home, laughing manically, will deter them.
As the storm gathers, set up the CS equipment and adjust the hotplate to heat a measured volume of distilled water. It should be just hot enough to make small bubbles at the bottom of the reaction vessel, but not hot enough for a rolling-boil. Mark the level of the water, as you will need to top up the water during the process. Start the current and add sodium carbonate drop by drop, until the voltage drops a little, perhaps to about 90 per cent of the initial voltage. Add 2mls of cinnamon extract to the reaction vessel for every litre of distilled water. Ensure that the maximum Silver anode is exposed to the water, minimum cathode, and start the timer. This whole process is much simpler if you buy a SilverTron I, but the instructions are for a normal laboratory PSU.
Inform the conductor that he needs to start the orchestra off. Something slow and benign, possibly classical; or maybe a tune from a favourite film of yours. Have him build to a crescendo over the next three hours while the process takes place. Any liquid refreshments should not be coloured red, as it will panic the second violins, who are made of less stern stuff than the brass section. Sandwiches should contain meat that is immediately identifiable, for the same reason. At the height of the storm, as the lightning is melting the copper conductor, then occupy yourself by going out onto the roof again, to ensure you have not lost too many peasants to the Werewolf. Ensure that Hench has strapped the Monster down tightly, and then return to your laboratory for the next part of the process.
Run the first 20 ppm, then stop the current and fire-clean the anode by heating it in a gas flame until the oxide coating goes white (reverts back to metallic Silver). Then top up the reaction vessel with more distilled water and repeat the process run, five times. At the end of the process, the 100 ppm CS will look like motor oil, but if you dilute it 1 part 100 ppm CS to four parts of water (remember it does not need to be distilled water for the purpose of dilution AFTER the end of the process) then you should be back to yellow 20 ppm CS. If the colour looks correct, and there is no significant taste, then you are finished.
Kephra has demonstrated this process with gelatine as an alternative to cinnamon, but the cinnamon tincture is an easy way to start and practice before going on to more advanced methods.

Argyria: Notes on the attempt to destroy the use of Colloidal Silver.

If you speak to people who know nothing about Colloidal Silver, and you give them a bottle of it to try, they will immediately go onto the Internet and search for the subject. They will then send you a panicky email and the email will almost certainly reveal their utter ignorance of Colloidal Silver by attaching a picture of, or a link to, Paul Karason;
Paul Karason not only consumed vast amounts of badly-made Silver Chloride, but also baked it onto his skin (Silver compounds are photo-sensitive) in what I can only assume was a deliberate attempt to become a talking-point in his home town. I don’t consider that he has achieved anything but notoriety for his action. I would also be interested in what he has to say about the damage that his absurd behaviour has done to the cause of Silver-derived health treatments.
The other person referred to by all the anti-CS Pharma people that all the ignorami mention, is Rosemary Jacobs. I am sorry for her severe skin blemishes, caused by her (prescribed) excessive use of (what was almost certainly) Silver Nitrate drops, but from her anti-CS writings, I can only conclude that she either doesn’t have the faintest idea what modern CS is (or how it is made), or that she is deliberately trying to put people off from using CS for reasons that I will charitably not comment upon. Either way, she hints that CS was responsible, when it had nothing to do with her skin condition. At the time she was prescribed her treatment, CS was not used or prescribed by allopathic doctors, and the substance she used was some form of Silver compound, almost certainly dilute Silver Nitrate.
I have heard of a few other Argyria cases, all caused by badly-made forms of Silver compounds, long-term use of high ppm products that almost certainly were not IS, or Mild Silver Protein. That’s it. No others. So we have a severe case of “anti-alternative-health-treatment theatre” constantly pushed under the noses of the unknowing by wicked men, in order to put off ill people from treating themselves with an excellent natural antibiotic. All because they want to mount a desperate defence of the dwindling profits made from their sale of allopathic drugs, while refusing to invest in any further research to discover new antibiotics. None of these cases occurred as a result of ingesting metallic CS.
The Chief Medical Officer of England has stated that she is very concerned that no drug companies are investing in new research into new classes of antibiotic, and that there are very few remaining antibiotics to which bacteria have not yet become resistant. She further states that the world is likely to soon enter a “post-antibiotic” era where diseases which were easily curable in the latter part of the last century, (such as pneumonia and gonorrhoea) once again become feared ailments. I agree with her analysis of this risk.
It never seems to occur to her that it might be the business of government to fund research that is for the good of mankind, but which is not financially-lucrative for private Pharmaceutical companies, but that’s a different issue. It also speaks volumes that Big Pharma has become so addicted to long-term drug sales that they are unwilling to fund research into drugs that actually cure people, preferring to finance research into drugs that have to be taken for long periods to maintain a semblance of health; but again, that’s a different issue (but one that is well-known to readers of this and similar blogs).
So we have three classes of Silver-containing liquids: solutions of Silver compounds, such as Silver Nitrate or Silver Chloride; Ionic CS; and finally metallic CS. Both IS & CS have amounts of Silver in them that are minuscule by comparison to the standard Silver compounds used in (for example) deodorants and clothing rinses. In theory, IS belongs to the same class of Silver compounds that possibly might cause Argyria if extensively and absurdly overdosed, but I have drunk large amounts of IS over the years, not knowing how to make the version for internal use (metallic CS) at that time. I never got any degree of grey or blue tint to my skin, ever, and no-one of my personal acquaintance has had any such problems either.
True metallic CS is infinitely less likely to cause Argyria. It is a completely different product, and I have consumed many litres of metallic CS since I learned to make it. Many thousands of people around the world have done the same, and the number of cases of Argyria to a degree similar to Paul Karason, Stan Jones or Rosemary Jacobs, is nil. That is correct; nil. This gives me considerable confidence that nothing is likely to go wrong with properly-prepared CS. I will repeat it, for the hard-of-reading: true metallic CS is much less likely to cause Argyria than IS, and IS is much less likely to cause Argyria than any other Silver compounds.
At 20 ppm, you would have to consume so much colloid in order to even approach a remote possibility of Argyria, that it is probable that you would die from water intoxication first. (Water intoxication is a condition where the blood becomes less concentrated than the fluid inside the cells of the body. When this reaches a certain point, the cells continue to absorb water through osmosis and swell. If the brain also becomes swollen beyond a certain point, the person can die).
It should also be noted that Paul Karason is otherwise completely healthy. Although I accept that his skin colouration is, to say the least, undesirable, he is living proof that Silver has effectively zero toxicity. All research into water purification comes to the same conclusion, that Silver is the one of the best water purification techniques, with zero downside to its’ use.
Kephra has also made a sensible contribution to this debate; steer clear of internal use of IS, and ONLY USE CS WHEN YOU ARE ILL or (I would add) for an occasional internal de-bugging.
Although IS is understandably sold as a “health supplement” by most sales websites, it is an antibiotic. Just as one should never dose animals with antibiotics long-term, so one should normally only use CS when one is unwell.

Intravenous Use of Colloidal Silver

I found my copy of this post from the old forum. It is unique in that it is (as far as I know) one of the first modern descriptions of IV use of CS. In WWI, it was apparently common for CS to be injected for the purpose of attempting to counter Cholera. Very little remains of their knowledge, although I would welcome anyone’s input if they find old accounts of the use of CS. This pair of posts were put onto the old site by a wonderful person from Africa in response to a request from participant LordKarma. I have sought his permission to quote this pair of responses, as the information is so unique. The first comment was posted to illustrate Tani’s uses of CS. LordKarma then requested that Tani posted his dosages and CS types, which Tani then did.
“My name is Taniform Asongwe, I live in the North Western Region of Cameroon. This region is ravaged by HIV and other diseases.  When I lost my brother in 2009 to HIV I got really annoyed with big Pharma and decided to start investigating the political and economic benefits/motivations of the disease process in general. When I realized how skewed medical curricula became after 1910, the world over, I took the decision to educate myself as much as possible. My conclusion is that a patient cured is a customer lost from the point of view of big Pharma, meanwhile medical research is primarily motivated by large profit margins at a later date, while the FDA is entirely controlled by the pharmaceutical industry for its own interests consequently leading to the ill and suffering to be quietly classified as primary commodities for the biggest market the world has ever endured.
I have had amazing results, my mother has been diabetic for more than 10 years and after prolonged exposure to CS, her sugar levels exceeded 120 only once in the past one year. My aunt was sent home to die with devastating opportunistic infections resulting from HIV. In a few weeks she was leading a normal life to the chagrin and surprise of the MD who sentenced her to death. A kidney infection resulted in my neighbour’s 22 year old son falling into a coma for one week. After administering CS to him in the evening about 7 pm he got up by day break and started urinating. Dialysis was suspended 3 days after exposure to CS, one week after that the catheters were removed as (his urea and creatinin levels normalized) it became conclusive they were no longer required. 3 weeks after that he was back in school. And finally another aunt was diagnosed with [a serious illness], using triple distilled water to produce CS, I passed it through a .2 micron syringe filter and gave it to her intravenously and she has had a full recovery although she was also sent home to die as she could not afford the cost of an operation and subsequent [redacted]therapy.
Joining this forum I realized the mistakes I have been making with the production of CS and I am certain correctly produced CS will be of much needed use to my friends and family. I also have a unique opportunity as giving medical advice here is not as regulated as in the western world. Though I have extreme limitations as to the availability of material and equipment like a hotplate/magnetic stirrer, clear corn syrup, cinnamon, 24 to 36 V DC power adapters it is a challenge. Necessity is the mother of creation. I located a small module in my Chinese made DVD player that outputs 30 V. I plugged it out and tapped the power output and have been making CS with it. A few weeks ago I found corn syrup but it contains a caramel colourant. In any case I am reading up on the forum daily and the astounding results are payment enough for me.
Kephra, I thank you so much for dispensing your incredible knowledge regarding CS for free and it is being put to great use to benefit people here. May God bless you and give you the strength to continue giving us this know-how.
Best Regards, Taniform.”
This is the second posting, after LordKarma requested the dosages;
“At the beginning I gave her [his diabetic mother] approximately 200 ml morning and evening, that’s 400 ml total daily. When she felt better, her eyesight got better and she told me she could see something on a board across the road clearly, her five times peeing in one night was no longer necessary and her energy levels increased and she started tentatively eating some foods she had not been eating. I then reduced it to 2 tablespoons [30 ml] morning and evening for the past eight months now. Though she felt a lot better she at times was not in optimum health, energy levels, skin texture was not so vibrant. I attributed it to her age at 67. However, once I started reducing the ionic/colloidal solution to colloidal as suggested on this forum, she commented about feeling a lot better and started asking for more. I had not informed her I changed the brewing method. Her skin texture is better than it has been in a long time and she does not stop reminding me how much more better she is feeling.
I believe I was producing more colloidal than ionic all along, I simply read up on it,  boiled the water and started the brewing with the water getting cold over time. Now I reduce the gas flame I use and just keep it below boiling point for the ten minutes I need, then reduce with corn syrup. I still cannot determine the exact concentration as I have no TDS meter. I needed to brew for like three hours before getting a slight yellow colour which was my cut off point. Now I brew for 10 minutes after adding a sodium carbonate solution which is quite helpful and I can have more of it.
My abandoned aunt, refused by a medical doctor and referred to go somewhere else with full blown AIDS, she was being carried around and could not eat or talk. I gave her colloidal silver and not ionic as I reduced it with corn syrup and continued boiling until I noticed no more colour change. I started her with 100 ml twice a day because I was worried about a Herxheimer reaction. After a few days when I noticed she was feeling better I increased it to half a litre taken three times daily. Once she started walking and eating without assistance I reduced the dosage again to four tablespoons [60 ml] three times daily. She is no longer plagued by the opportunistic infections, though the HIV is still there.
The grand aunt with [the serious illness], I started her off with two tablespoons three times daily for five days, then I proceeded 5 ml IV once daily for another three days before moving up to 10 ml for 20 days. She had previously been lying down for four months. Now she is back in the market where she sells foodstuff. It was so bad that there was this foul smelling whitish liquid mixed with blood at times dripping down.
The young man whose kidney failed was started at 5 ml IV for three days, then to 10 ml for another seven days then to two tablespoons [30 ml] twice daily for one month. All of this I had to make hard choices because I was being faced with life threatening conditions and had to decide the better yet unknown steps to take.
I hope that I can ask a lot of questions on this forum as I am thinking of using the CS even more courageously particularly regarding HIV. Are there any limitations as to the kind of questions I can ask? I am aware no medical advice is being dispensed on this forum of course.
Currently I have a [seriously-ill] patient who was told she would not be alive by this December. [The illness] had spread right down to her right ribs, of course only visual observation. Since I joined this forum I realized that in the colloidal form I could give her large quantities. She is taking 500 ml daily.  The [illness] has reduced to the [original site] alone where it started but is not getting any better. I am thinking of mixing the CS with DMSO, hoping that it might carry the CS to the growth. I would very much appreciate some input on this. So as of now I am using only colloidal silver.  Sorry for the very long post lordkarma, however I hope to have been explicit enough. Regards Tani.”


I must, regrettably, pass a comment that I hope readers will understand; that Big Pharma and their bought-and-paid-for civil servants do not permit a person to claim that they have a cure for certain serious illnesses, and I therefore categorically assert that Tani’s comments do not constitute any form of claim for a cure. No proof of diagnosis was furnished in the posts.
In addition, I categorically repeat that NONE of the posts or comments on this website purport to be a cure for any form of cancer, and the owners, administrators and users, commentators and participants DO NOT offer to treat any person for cancer, DO NOT prescribe any remedy or remedies for the treatment of cancer, NOR do any of us give, or purport to give or imply, any advice in connection with the treatment thereof. Any posts claiming this or giving anything resembling such will be deleted.

Myth of pH 10 Colloidal Silver

Some people are under the misconception that colloidal silver generators can produce alkaline water of pH 10. This is absolutely false. It is however possible to produce colloidal silver which reads pH 10 on an electronic pH meter. This is because standard electronic pH meters have silver based probes which do not read correctly in solutions containing silver, gold, and most transition metals.
From the pH Meter Guide at

Since standard electrodes contain silver in the reference solution within the electrode, there are numerous applications where this kind of electrode can’t be used. The subsequent solutions cannot be measured with general purpose electrodes.
Heavy metals including silver, iron and lead
Organics such as acetone
Low ion solutions such as distilled water
High sodium concentrations such as solutions containing large amounts of salts

The type of electrode supplied with most pH meters is the silver electrode.
The true pH of the colloidal silver solution can be determined by using the correct pH meter electrodes, called Calomel electrodes. Calomel electrodes are based on mercury instead of silver, so silver in the solution does not interfere and produce a false reading. It can also be verified with Hydrion pH test paper, which is also not affected by metal ions in the water.
A knowledge of general chemistry and the periodic chart of the elements should also make it clear that silver solutions cannot be pH 10 unless there is sufficient sodium, potassium, magnesium, calcium, or other elements present from columns one or two of the periodic chart (except hydrogen). Elements from column 1 are called alkali metals because they react with water to form hydroxides. Elements from column 2 are called alkaline earth metals and also form hydroxides in water. Of these elements, only sodium, potassium, calcium and magnesium are friendly to the human body. Beryllium for example is very toxic.
Water has a pH less than 7 because a portion of the water ionizes creating 10-7 moles of H+ ions and 10-7 moles of OH ions per liter of water. The 7 comes from the mathematical operation of taking the logarithm of 10-7 which is -7 and multiplying that by -1 giving 7.  This should make the pH exactly 7, but dissolved carbon dioxide from the air creates carbonic acid which lowers the pH.
To make water more acid, there must be more H+ ions than OH ions. To make water more alkaline, there must be more OH ions than H+ ions. At pH 8, there is 10-8 moles of H+ ions, and 10-6 moles of OH ions per liter. The exponents always add up to 14.
Where do the extra OH ions come from? They come from the alkali or alkaline earth hydroxides. Thats why only these elements can raise the pH of the water to any extent.
Silver does not form hydroxides with water. During electrolysis, silver hydroxide is formed at the anode, but quickly decomposes into silver oxide, which is not an alkaline substance.
At pH 10, there must be 1000 times as many OH ions and 1/1000 times as many H+ ions.
Anyone claiming that their colloidal silver equipment produces ph 10 alkaline water is proving their ignorance of basic chemistry.
Starting with distilled water with a milliliter of 1 molar sodium carbonate, the pH measures slightly over 7 to 7.5. After reducing the resultant silver with invert sugar, the pH is usually slightly less than 7 because of the formation of gluconic acid which results from the oxidation of the sugar. Never is the pH anywhere near a true value of 10.

Making Heat-reduced and Sugar-reduced CS

The first improvement over IS was Heat-reduced CS. This makes use of the fact that Silver Oxide will reduce to metallic Silver nanoparticles in the presence of heat and the absence of oxygen. It can be prepared during the actual production run, or post-production by heating the IS until all or most of the IS turns to CS. It is easy to see the process, because the IS turns a golden-yellow when the ions are reduced to AgNP (Silver nanoparticles).
It was then found that monosaccharide sugars – glucose or fructose – in an alkaline solution (higher than pH 7), would achieve the same result using less energy, thus making a cheaper product. Also, sugar ensures that the reduction process is complete and stays complete. The sugars we use are either a solution of glucose or fructose dissolved in distilled water; or alternatively, one drop of inverted sugar syrup (“Golden Syrup” in the UK, “Karo” in the USA) will do the same thing and is easily purchased from a supermarket.
Heat-reduced CS almost always has a slightly metallic taste, indicating that there is some IS left unreduced. Under some conditions, CS-H can oxidise back to a much paler solution, indicating that the CS-H has returned partially to IS. This can be avoided in almost all cases by heating until no further colour change is seen.
Production of Heat or Sugar-reduced Colloidal Silver (CS-H or CS-S)
The basis of production of true CS (AgNP) is the same as production of IS, but one then reduces the ionic content to AgNP with heat or sugar, either during the production run or post-production in a microwave. (I prefer to heat the DW during the run, but either method works). I have copied-and-pasted some of the paragraphs from the previous post, in case some people wish to print out the “recipe” and have it beside them when making the CS.
If this is your first attempt, use a small quantity of DW the first time (say 250 mls), in order to avoid wastage of DW. If you have a laboratory heating plate with magnetic stirrer, this is ideal. However, these stirrers are astoundingly expensive and I have found a single-ring hotplate is quicker to heat the water and can be bought off eBay quite cheaply.
In the absence of a magnetic stirrer, you can stir the water perfectly adequately using the convection currents in the hot DW. Some people use an air-bubbler to stir the water, but I feel this introduces too much oxygen and atmospheric contaminants and evaporates too much DW. I do not use an air-bubbler for any purpose connected with CS production.
Assemble the electrodes in the usual way, over the chosen reaction vessel. Allow time for the hotplate to get up to temperature. You can shorten the time and energy required by pre-heating the DW in a microwave, if the beaker will fit. The temperature at which I run my production is about 80 – 90 degrees C. You do not need a thermometer; the right temperature for hot-water production is when bubbles form at the bottom of the beaker but do not manage to break the upper surface of the water. You may need to top up the DW during a long production run. Tall, relatively narrow cylinders or cafetieres are much more thermally-efficient than a shallow container.
Once the DW is up to temperature, connect the PSU and ensure that the positive lead is connected to the Silver anode. With the voltmeter and ammeter on-line, start the current. We will use the same electrolyte as before, in order to speed up the process and allow us to calculate the ppm of the final product with much greater accuracy. Add Sodium Carbonate drop-by-drop, allowing time for the convection currents to stir the DW and thoroughly mix the electrolyte, until the voltage reduces to about 90 per cent of the initial value. This indicates that your current has come within the control range of the constant-current circuitry of the PSU.
In most cases, if the anode is a silver wire or narrow strip, the current should be around 2-5 mA. 1 toz Silver bullion bars can run at 15 mA. Large Silver anode plates (say, 150 mm long by 30 mm wide) can easily be pushed to 15 mA and I run my very largest anodes at 40 mA. At this time, note the current (mA) and start your timer.
Using the calculations in the previous post, estimate the time required to produce 20 ppm CS. There is no point in attempting to produce uncapped CS at a higher concentration than 20 ppm. Anything over 10 ppm will work effectively, but a final strength between 15 – 20 ppm is desirable. If you wish to make concentrations higher than 20 ppm for ease of storage or transport, then make capped CS. Run the process until the required ppm is made.
You will be able to watch the DW slowly turn yellow as the Silver is reduced to metallic CS AgNP. The process is complete when the run-time indicates that you have made the required ppm of AgNP. At this stage, the heat in the DW will have reduced the majority of IS to AgNP and produced true CS.
To finish making Heat-reduced CS, stop the current and continue to heat the CS-H until no more colour change takes place. You can do this on the hot-plate or if the beaker is small, transfer it to a microwave.
To make sugar-reduced CS, add a drop of “Karo” or “Golden Syrup”. You can make 1 M glucose or fructose and add a few drops, but “Karo” or other inverted-sugar syrups work well. You can add the sugar syrup at the beginning, after the water is heated, and just before you start the current; alternatively, you can add it at the end, while the CS is cooling. Post-production reduction is considered slightly better, as one is not then electrolysing the sugar, but I have found both techniques work very well.
There is one final alternative, which is very energy-efficient, and that is to make IS cold, then boil in a microwave for CS-H, or add a drop of syrup and boil for CS-S. This works, but heating the product during the production run makes for better stirring and the process runs cleaner.
The result should be totally clear, yellow CS containing no visible particles, and the end-product should look like the finest single-malt Scotch whisky (finest Tennessee sippin’ whisky if you’re in the USA). The final colour has also been likened to Johnson’s baby shampoo, (and like the shampoo, CS does not sting even in the eyes). Tasting the product should give no metallic taste, in fact, it should not really taste of anything.
Any large particles of Oxide floating in the water or left at the bottom of the reaction vessel (it looks like black or grey dust) can be removed by filtering through an aquarium air-stone or the CS can be decanted off. If you filter the product, do not use the same tubing and air-stone for filtering IS, or the IS will immediately be reduced to CS.
Other Notes Concerning Colloidal Silver (AgNP).
Sugar-reduced CS is the universal product. It can be used for any purpose for which CS is applicable. The sugar molecules are small enough that they do not “cap” the AgNP in the same way that cinnamon-reduction provides, so CS-H or CS-S may be more suitable for treating wounds or external abrasions. The use of cinnamon-reduced CS for external use is still the subject of research.
Heat-reduced CS (CS-H) is the only version that I would consider for using upon myself intravenously, until more evidence is available. However, we have had a unique and valuable contribution from a forum member which will be the subject of a later post on this aspect of using CS. The possibility of quickly and effectively curing bacterial meningitis (a fast-acting and lethal bacterium) with an IV drip of CS-H is tantalising and theoretically simple.
Until we have more data from up-to-date research, I cannot recommend the use of any CS product for medical use. I am a biologist and chemist but have no medical qualifications. In these pages, I am giving notes as to what I have done and how I have experimented upon myself and other volunteers, in the hope that others may benefit. Anyone who follows these notes should be aware that they are fellow-researchers into one of the most valuable fields of health research in the post-antibiotic era. The use of AgNP for healing has been known (with much more primitive production methods) since the late nineteenth century. These notes are given for research and information purposes only. You should always consult a qualified medical practitioner if you are unwell.

Making Ionic Silver (IS) or Silver Oxide

This product is the only version of “CS” that is available for sale on most websites. There are two manufacturers of CS in the UK who make heat-reduced CS for sale, but I know of none in the USA. It is an effective bactericide, viricide and fungicide. It also accelerates healing of wounds and burns. It is somewhat less-used than the other forms of CS if you know how to make the other versions, but the manufacturing technique is being posted next, as it is the basis of sugar-reduced and heat-reduced CS, as well as being a product in its’ own right.
It has a strong metallic taste. When correctly prepared it does not sting, even in the eyes, and is a powerful accelerator for healing of cuts and abrasions. Although I have found sugar- or heat-reduced CS to give good results in healing scrapes and abrasions, some contributors to the old forum indicated that IS was superior as a healing accelerant when applied topically. It is not ideal for internal use, being possibly implicated in Argyria if consumed in very heavy doses.
IS is nothing more than electrolytically-produced Silver Oxide dissolved in distilled water. Kephra likened the solubility of Silver Oxide to dissolving limestone, which is an effective analogy. It is easiest to prepare by electrolytic means because it is passed directly into the DW during electrolysis, so the process is much faster than trying to dissolve it from a powder. The maximum solubility of IS is close to 20 ppm, so there is no point in attempting to make it more concentrated than that.
Older websites and most commercial websites selling CS-making machines insist that it should be made from nothing but distilled water, (sometimes with the addition of an amount of previously-made IS, as an attempt to speed up the process). The current is then run until the machine (if using a commercial machine) reaches the shut-off point (normally set at approximately 10 – 15 ppm or thereabouts). It can be made this way, but the run takes many hours, and the ppm of the final IS product is almost impossible to calculate unless you are the owner of a SilverTron I.
However, there is a way around this problem, and that is to use the same electrolyte used in the previous article, Sodium Carbonate. In this manner, the run-time can be calculated reasonably accurately, with far less wastage of Silver Oxide plated out onto the cathode. You will see electrodes with a black furry coating of oxide in most photographs of IS production, if an electrolyte is not used.

Production of IS is done cold, or with low levels of heating approximately to the same extent as used in heating an aquarium. To achieve consistency of production, I use an aquarium heater to maintain the DW at approximately 30 degrees C, but this is not necessary.
Assemble the electrodes in the usual way, over the chosen reaction vessel. If this is your first attempt, use a small quantity of DW the first time (say 250 mls), in order to avoid wastage of DW. As you cannot stir the water using heat convection currents, stirring the water with a miniature aquarium pump is a very good idea. If you have a laboratory magnetic stirrer, this is ideal for small reaction vessels if the beaker is too small to hold the submerged pump. However, these stirrers are very expensive; it might be cheaper to use the pump and make a larger quantity in a bigger beaker.
Some people use an air-bubbler to stir the water, but I feel this introduces too much oxygen and atmospheric contaminants and evaporates too much DW.
With the voltmeter and ammeter on-line, start the current. Add Sodium Carbonate drop-by-drop, stirring the water, until the voltage reduces to about 90 per cent of the initial value. At this time, note the current and start your timer.
Using the calculators in the previous post, estimate the time required to produce 20 ppm IS. There is no point in attempting to produce IS at a higher concentration due to the limited solubility of IS. Anything over 10 ppm will work effectively, but a final strength between 15 – 20 ppm is desirable.
Run the process until the required ppm is made. The result should be totally colourless clear IS containing no visible particles, and should look like water. Tasting the product should give a strong metallic taste. Any large particles of Oxide floating in the water or left at the bottom of the reaction vessel (it looks like black or grey dust) can be removed by filtering through an aquarium air-stone. (Note: if you filter your IS, you should keep the tubing and air-stone strictly for use with IS. Any contamination of IS with any amount of a reducing agent, no matter how small, will almost certainly result in the product being reduced to metallic CS. The same applies to storage containers).
Other Notes Concerning Ionic Silver (Silver Oxide)
Sometimes, particularly if the container is kept in a very cold place, some of the Oxide will drop out of solution. If a small amount of grey dust collects at the bottom of the bottle, but the remainder of the body of IS is clear like water, then ignore it and use it anyway. When the air temperature becomes warmer, the IS will (very) slowly dissolve again.
For reasons that are at present unknown, sometimes the entire Silver Oxide content will fall out of solution and form a milky-grey liquid suspension. This can still be used externally, but should under no circumstances be drunk. It is still highly effective in healing burns. There is anecdotal evidence that it works even better than the clear IS, but this is by no means fully proven.
I once stored IS in a plastic drinks bottle, the threads of the cap of which had traces of fructose around it. This reduced the IS to metallic CS. Ensure any recycled containers are scrupulously clean. Old Coke bottles, whether glass or plastic, are particularly prone to this.
It is a good idea, if you can afford it, to keep a set of equipment for the production of IS only, as the smallest trace of reducing agent in the water will result in the product turning into metallic CS. Otherwise ensure you clean out the glassware thoroughly and rinse it with DW before use.
If you visit any website that offers clear, metallic-tasting silver solutions for sale, and which states that their product is more than 20 ppm, it is almost certain that they are offering a Silver salt dissolved in water. Anyone can dissolve Silver Citrate or Silver Nitrate in water and say that it has a high concentration of Silver in the product, but it is not AgNP or CS.
I would not recommend Silver Citrate for any purpose other than as an under-arm deodorant, or as a final rinse in your washing-machine to reduce bacterial growth on clothing. It is sold in the UK as a treatment for paramedics’ clothing. I would not use Silver Nitrate AT ALL, as it can be highly corrosive in high concentrations, and is heavily implicated in some of the few known cases of Argyria.

Making Stabilised (Capped) Reduced CS with Cinnamon Tincture.

As we have seen in previous posts, there are three kinds of CS and one kind of Ionic Silver (IS) that are useful for killing bugs and accelerating healing. (In future, we may discover others, but it is likely that they will be variants on these themes).
Stabilised (capped) CS is the easiest kind of CS to make, and the best for internal use. This is because capped CS holds the nanoparticles apart, one from another, and protects them to some extent while they travel through the acid conditions of the stomach. The capping agent (in our case cinnamon, but gelatine will also work) is then digested and the silver nanoparticles are released to do their work.
Also, the capping effect of the cinnamon allows this form of CS to be made to a MUCH higher ppm than the normal maximum 20 ppm. 80 ppm is easily feasible; Kephra has demonstrated 1000 ppm. This is not for the purpose of consuming the higher ppm in its concentrated state. It is better to water the concentrated CS down to the “normal” 20 ppm, and this can be done with any potable water; it does not have to be distilled water. The advantage, therefore, of the higher ppm is for ease of transport and for a considerable saving in the amount of Distilled Water (DW) used.
So, we measure out a quantity of Distilled Water (DW) into the reaction vessel. If this were your first attempt, it would be best to start with a small glass beaker or cafetiere with about 250 mls capacity, so that if anything goes wrong, you will not be wasting too much DW.
Before doing anything else, fit and adjust the electrodes to give the maximum anode area exposed to the water. Do not allow any non-Silver components on the anode side to touch the water, or you will contaminate the CS. The point at which your Silver electrode is connected to the positive lead should either be out of the water, or covered by painting it in one or more layers of varnish or other impervious waterproof covering. I normally use a crocodile clip to suspend the Silver anode.
The negative cathode should have only a small amount of surface area exposed to the water. Maximum anode, minimum cathode area.
Heat the water using a microwave or the hotplate. Connect all the cables and start the PSU current flowing. Then take the bottle of sodium carbonate and, while watching the voltmeter and ammeter, put one drop at a time, into the DW. Check the voltmeter as the electrolyte is added, drop-by-drop. As soon as the voltage starts to decrease, stop adding sodium carbonate. You should need no more than about two to six drops of electrolyte to cause the voltage to drop to about 90 percent of the starting value. What you have done is to cause enough current to flow across the electrodes to reach the set point of the constant-current PSU. Then add 0.5 mls of cinnamon tincture to the DW. Record the value of the current.
Using the equation in the previous posting, calculate the time required to make 20 ppm CS. Allow the current to run for the required length of time. If you have done everything correctly, you will see the DW quickly start to change colour to a faint yellow and then see the colour deepen to an increasingly brilliant yellow. After the required length of time, you should have a beaker of crystal-clear, whisky-coloured 20 ppm capped CS.
Disconnect the cables, remove the electrodes and allow the CS to cool to room temperature. If there are any particles in the water, filter the CS using the aquarium tubing and air-stone, then bottle in a PET plastic or glass bottle. Clear plastic or glass is fine; it does not have to be brown or blue coloured glass or plastic.
Holding the Silver anode in a pair of forceps or pliers, use a small blowtorch or gas flame to heat the anode until the oxide discolouration on the anode goes white. Allow to cool. This reduces the oxides on the anode back to Silver metal without waste of valuable Silver, and burns off any dross.
After repeating this process several times, you can then produce larger batches. Let us know how you get on.

Formulae to Calculate the ppm of CS from Current and Time

To calculate the time if the current and required ppm are known (the normal case).

The formula is: Time (mins) = Volume DW (Ltrs) x ppm Ag x 15 / mA on CC meter

               volume (ltrs) x ppm x 15

time    =     ———————————–


To calculate the ppm if the time and current are known:

The formula is:  ppm Ag = Time (mins) x mA on CC meter / Volume DW (Ltrs) x 15

                           time (mins) x mA

ppm Ag     =      —————————–

                          volume DW (Ltrs) x 15


Preparation of Stock Solutions.

Technically, I suppose, it is not necessary to make the following stock solutions of any particular strength, but it is much easier for a novice to copy what is being demonstrated if they can duplicate the method precisely, and this means a precise concentration of a given chemical.
In order to make all types of CS, you will need a small amount of the following stock solutions.
Electrolyte: The earliest makers of IS understood that some form of electrolyte was advantageous, but they made a serious error in using common salt (Sodium Chloride). This meant that the IS was heavily contaminated by Silver Chloride, and if this is ingested in any quantity, Argyria will almost certainly result. DO NOT USE COMMON SALT as an electrolyte while making IS or CS.
Fortunately, we have much better alternatives. The electrolyte can be made from Sodium Hydroxide or Sodium Carbonate (washing soda). We will use Sodium Carbonate in subsequent notes, as it is much safer.
WARNING; Sodium Hydroxide (Caustic Soda) is used for cleaning drains by dissolving fat and protein and washing it away. YOU are made of fat and protein. The presence of excess concentrations of Sodium Hydroxide is easily detectable by a soapy, slimy feeling on the skin. Sodium Hydroxide is EXTREMELY CORROSIVE and can cause instant blindness. You must take great care and use protective clothing, gloves and eye protection when handling Sodium Hydroxide. I take no responsibility for anyone who handles Sodium Hydroxide incorrectly. As it is just as effective and far safer to use Sodium Carbonate (washing soda) as an electrolyte, I recommend that you use Sodium Carbonate as your electrolyte rather than the Hydroxide. The use of the more corrosive chemical is noted for historical research purposes, as it works, and as you may be in a situation where only this chemical is available. In case of accidental splashes, wash away the hydroxide immediately with copious amounts of cold water until the “soapy” texture is gone. For extra safety (except in the eyes), you may consider rinsing the area with common vinegar, which will neutralise remaining traces of hydroxide.
The purpose of the electrolyte is four-fold;

  1. The electrolyte speeds up the process considerably. Without an electrolyte, it takes between twelve and twenty-four hours to make a gallon of CS, with the current starting from almost nothing, and accelerating until the current reaches the set-point of the generator or constant-current power supply. With an electrolyte, this process starts at full speed from the beginning.
  2. As the process starts at, or close to, the set-point of the constant-current PSU, the current effectively stays steady all the time. The amount of Silver liberated and therefore the ppm of Silver can be accurately determined as a result. This is much more efficient.
  3. The electrolyte tends to keep the Silver from reaching the cathode and therefore being wasted by plating itself onto the cathode.
  4. The electrolyte raises the pH of the DW (makes it alkaline); this allows glucose or fructose reducing agents to work.

To make 1 Molar Sodium Carbonate – preferred electrolyte
Dissolve 12.4 grams pure food grade sodium carbonate in enough distilled water to make 100 ml solution.
To make 1 Molar Sodium Hydroxide: Dissolve 4 grams pure food grade sodium hydroxide in enough distilled water to make 100ml solution. See warning above.
Cinnamon Extract: To make Stabilised (capped) CS, one of the most easily-available and effective reducing and capping agents is cinnamon extract. There is possibly also a synergistic effect with the cinnamon, as cinnamon is a known anti-viral.
To make cinnamon tincture, take a teaspoon of powdered cinnamon, pour it into a 250 ml miniature bottle of cheap vodka, cap it and shake vigorously. Allow to stand for a least twenty-four hours and then filter it or decant the liquor off from the remaining sediment. This red liquid is the cinnamon tincture.
High-Fructose Corn Syrup or Partially-inverted Glucose Syrup: This can be made, but fortunately can be purchased ready for use, as “Karo” in the USA, and “Golden Syrup” in the UK. I am sure other countries have imports of one or the other. Only a drop is needed. The easiest way to put it into the hot DW is to use a wooden stirrer of the type given away in coffee shops. Dip the end into the syrup and when it is put into the hot DW, the air in the pores of the wood bubbles out and disperses the syrup into the body of the DW. If you cannot obtain either of the syrup products, then you can buy glucose or fructose from the baking section of a supermarket, or from a home-brewing supply house. Again, only a drop per litre is needed.
To make 1 Molar Glucose or Fructose: Dissolve 18 grams of glucose or fructose in enough distilled water to make 100 ml solution.
