Vitamin C Colloidal Silver and Zinc Wipe out the Common Cold

October 23, 2017; by Briana McDonald, Staff Writer- Silver Bulletin e-News magazine ( When we catch the common cold there are a few general “go to’s” we all have for feeling better. For each of us that strategy looks different but for most of the population we reach for antihistamines, codeine, intranasal decongestants and prescription antibiotics. The flaw in this approach is that the cold is caused by a virus, and mainstream antibiotics only treat bacterial infections and the prolonged use of these antibiotics has resulted in antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria also dubbed as “super bugs.” What if I told you that the combination of simple nutrients and the use of mankind’s oldest natural antibiotic could get you feeling like a million bucks ten times faster than conventional cold remedies which studies have proven are no better at treating the cold than a placebo? The truth is vitamin C Colloidal Silver and Zinc wipe out the common cold quicker than any other therapeutic treatment; here’s why.

Cold with a Capitol C – Vitamin C 
A review of over 29 clinical trials including over 9,000 cold episodes found consistent benefits of vitamin c when used alone to treat the common cold. There was an 8% reduction among adults and a 14% reduction of cold duration among children. These results were based on the fact that they were administered just 200 mg of this nutrient per day. When they tested at higher doses around 1,000 and 2,000 mg per day the results were even better and had an average of 18% shorter colds. (1) The study also confirmed that regular vitamin c supplementation reduced the severity of colds.
Vitamin C does amazing things in the human body. It’s been proven to: 
  • repair and maintain teeth and bones
  • slow and prevent cell damage
  • reduce inflammation
  • maintain healthy body tissues
  • boost immune system***
  • helps to absorb iron from plant foods
  • decreases severity and duration of colds
  • fights free radical damage
  • builds collagen needed to bind bones, joints, tendons, and ligaments together
  • builds and maintains blood vessels
A deficiency in this miraculous nutrient will show up in the body in various ways. In one way your immune system will definitely be more compromised and susceptible to illnesses and it could take longer to heal from things than you’re used to.
You can take 1000 mg of Vitamin C to fight off an oncoming cold and 4000 mg per day to get rid of a cold already in your system.” (2)
Zinc and the Common Cold 
Another database review analyzed 16 therapeutic studies that included over 1300 people plus two prevention trials. The research found that zinc taken within 24 hours of the appearance of cold symptoms significantly reduced the duration of a cold. There was a 55% reduction in the number of people symptomatic of a cold after 7 days compared to those not taking zinc and the incidence of colds among those taking zing regularly was 36% less than those who were not. The study also noted that the cold duration occurred when doses were at 75 mg per day or greater.
Other research shows that zinc can interfere with the molecular process that causes mucus and bacteria to build within the nasal passages. Ionic zinc, based on it’s electrical charge, has the ability to exert an antiviral effect by attaching to the receptors in nasal epithelial cells and blocking their effects. (3)
Zinc is also known for it’s wonderful ability to: 
  • act as a powerful antioxidant that may fight cancer
  • helps to balance hormones
  • helps to reverse diabetes
  • improves cardiovascular health by supporting blood vessels
  • prevents diarrhea
  • increases fertility
  • aids in nutrient absorption and digestion
  • supports liver health
  • helps with muscle growth and repair (4)
Colloidal Silver 
Colloidal Silver is not only an antibiotic, but also an antiviral, anti-fungal, and anti-microbial as well. It will kill any single cell organism on contact. Period. Silver interrupts the bacteria cell’s ability to form the chemical bonds essential to it’s survival. These bonds produce the cells physical structure so when bacteria meets silver it literally falls apart. This is why for instance silver bandages are in such high demand right now. They not only kill any bacteria present but prevent more from growing and increase healing time making them extremely valuable to burn and wound victims. Silver has also been proven to promote the growth of new cells which is another reason wounds heal much quicker with Silver present and unlike other metals with antimicrobial properties, it is not toxic for humans. (5)
“The bactericidal happens by oxidizing the anaerobic pathogenic bacteria. They die within short periods mentioned above and don’t hang around long enough to figure out what happened and how to resist the silver. The silver ions act as catalysts to oxidize the bacteria, then continues to hunt down more.”
In 2011 the NIH took 100 children under the age of 12 suffering from the common cold and nasal congestion and assigned them into two groups; the first group was treated with a solution of colloidal silver and beta glucan, and the second group with saline solution. Even though both groups benefited from the treatment, 90% of the people in the colloidal silver group completely recovered! (6)
Other healing benefits of Colloidal Silver include: 
  • antibacterial – while employed at UCLA Medical School in the 1980’s Larry C Ford, MD, documented over 650 different disease-causing pathogens that were destroyed in minutes when exposed to small amounts of silver! (7)
  • keeps wounds clean and increases healing time/ also helps with other skin conditions like psoriasis, acne, skin tags, and eczema
  • heals pink eye and ear infections
  • potent antiviral
  • potent anti inflammatory
  • heals sinusitis
  • heals pneumonia when used in a nebulizer – generally one teaspoon 3 times per day for 10 to 15 minutes will do the trick!
Vitamin C, Colloidal Silver, and Zinc Wipe Out the Common Cold 
Ok so now you know how amazing these minerals and nutrients are all on their own, imagine what happens when they combine forces? Since our bodies work synergistically, combining these theraputic tools together means your going to a.) prevent yourself from ever getting the cold in the first place, b.) heal from the cold much quicker than normal and c.) strengthen your immune system.
Studies done combing vitamin c and zinc showed significant reduction in cold symptoms over a five day treatment window. They also found that the symptoms disappeared sooner in those taking the combination. The study analyzed the results of 94 patients given either 1000 mg of vitamin c plus 10 mg of zinc per day or a placebo.
