You are being confused by the Marketing BS, Lies & Confusion that will drive Dr. Phil insane. Just disregard anything those lying bast*rds have to say about "Real" Colloidal Silver and their "silver particles." Also disregard anything said about adding chemicals of any kind to our ionic silver.
It is all BS pure & simple. http://www.thesilveredge.com/metalloproteins.shtml
"Ionic silver are not complete atoms of silver and therefore are not silver particles."
Again the marketing BS is adding gross confusion.
The silver particle (atom) consists of 47 protons & 61 Neutrons in the center nucleus with 5 rings of electrons swirling around the nucleus (AG). The last ring consists of 1 electron. The only difference between the ion and the particle (atom) is that the 1 electron is missing, giving the particle a positive charge, AG+
