By    |   Friday, 25 September 2015 05:31 PM EDT

While controversy still brews about the effectiveness of colloidal silver supplements, many credit treatment and even cures to this natural substance.

In the past, colloidal silver supplements have been thought of as some sort of "cure-all," used treat illnesses from colds to infections, News Medical said.

Today, however, the Food and Drug Administration, citing insufficient research and study, says colloidal silver is not safe or effective for treating any sort of disease or condition, and it is not an essential mineral.

Nonetheless, many report successes, even ones seemingly miraculous, as an impact from using these supplements.

Here are just a few:

1. As an antibacterial and antiviral
A University of California Los Angeles study in the 1980s showed colloidal silver works as an antibacterial that can kill over 650 types of bacteria, fungi, parasites, and molds, however the school later disavowed the study, saying the researcher did it independently and without the school's backing.

2. For wound care and skin health
Silver is a known treatment for burns, skin wounds, and skin infections. This use is one of the few uses recognized by the Food and Drug Administration because the supplement is not taken orally.

3. For conjunctivitis
The FDA also recognizes using colloidal silver to prevent this eye condition in newborn infants. Some adults with conjunctivitis also use colloidal silver as eye drops.

4. For ear infections
The website of natural medicine Dr. Josh Axe notes colloidal silver can be effective against  ear infections that may be caused by different types of bacteria as well as fungi.

5. For HIV and AIDS
According to Herb Wisdom
, in some cases, patients with AIDS have been shown to have lengthier survival rates when using colloidal silver supplements. Dr. Axe notes the silver suffocates viruses, reducing the activity of these viruses in patients.

6. For cancerous tumors
In some cases, colloidal silver has been injected in cancerous tumors. According to Herb Wisdom, colloidal silver can attack sick cells and destroy them as well as prevent cancerous cells from occurring by recalibrating the rate at which they divide.

As always, you should talk to your doctor before adding any new supplements to your routine.
