The Silver Safety Council breaks down
dosage into three formulas based on how a person plans to use the supplement. There is an equation for determining daily, short-term, and lifetime use.
For daily dosage, the Council says to multiply the individual’s body weight in pounds by 12 and then divide that by the total parts per million, which can be found on the bottle. The resulting number is the maximum number of drops that should be taken each day.
For short-term use, it is recommended that the usage does not exceed 10 days per month. To find the maximum number of drops per day, multiply 120 by the person’s weight and then divide by the ppm.
In a person’s lifespan, they should not exceed the results of 306,600 multiplied by the person’s weight and divided by the ppm, the Council says. The number is the maximum total drops over the course of a lifetime a person should take of the silver supplement.
People who take colloidal silver supplements are strongly encouraged to have an intake of lots of antioxidants and drink plenty of water to avoid silver accumulation in their systems.
