That totally flies in the face of actual experiences from people I have directly talked to or else listened to or read their unsolicited reports. Among those who have actually used it, I have virtually never heard anyone say that home generated silvr or even other commercial products worked better than Utopia-Silver , while I have heard and seen scores and scores of reports that it performed better.
It also flies in the face of the test performed by a CureZone member a few years ago where he took some home generated silver, a popular commercial ionic silver product that called itself Colloidal Silver and Utopia-Silver and he sprayed some of each on three differens damp slices of bread. The bread sprayed with the home made silver began to become moldy in only a couple of days, followed shortly thereafter by the ionic silver. Two weeks later and the bread sprayed with Utopia-Silver was still mold free.
In additon, a person who is a member of my Yahoo group posted that she tried homemade silver made with one of the more popular generators touted here in this forum, silver with somewhat higher colloidal content made with Utopia Silver's Silver Bullet generator and the Utopia Silver Advanced Colloidal Silver . She said that the popular generator silver worked OK but the silver made with the Silver Bullet worked better and that the Advanced Colloidal Silver worked best of all.
BTW, I agree with you that Utopia Silver may have an advantage over Mesosilver. The silver experts that I most respect have said that colloidal silver and ionic silver work best in combination with one another, especially when it comes to internal use. Thus, even though mesosilver may have a theoretical advantage due to a bit smaller average particle size, Utopia Silver may have an advantage in actual use because it has a bit higher ionic content. However, I do not for a second believe that the higher the ionic content the better. It's just that you do need a bit.
I also agree that those prices are high. I much prefer catching Utopia Silver on sale for half-price (as is the case right now) for less than $15 per 8 ounce bottle.
What I know is this: I keep a good amount of Utopia Silver on hand at all times. It has almost never failed us for a wide variety of conditions and issues, including pink eye, stomach distress, bronchial infections, the flu, MRSA, cuts and scrapes and on and on. It even helped save one of my found dogs after he was bitten by a rabid skunk. Most recently, it helped both my better half Luella and myself beat the flu when we both started coming down with it a couple of weeks ago. LOTS (ounces) of colloidal silver plus oil of wild oregano, goldenseal, olive leaf extract and echinacea three times a day and the flu was gone in only a couple of days. And this year's flu is a really nasty one.
