Argyria and Colloidal Silver
Argyria is a skin condition that is sometimes referred to as the “blue man syndrome” or the “disease of the living dead,” because people with this condition have permanent skin discoloration resulting in a gray-blue color to their skin caused by silver particles being embedded in their skin cells. Compounding the issue is those who have argyria must stay out of the sunlight or it will oxidize the silver particles and make conditions worse. Argyria is a cosmetic problem that does not result in just the skin being discolored, it also causes discoloration of eyes, organs, hair, gums, and nails.
Why does Argyria occur? When a person ingests dietary supplements or is tricked by marketers into taking products taking silver salts like colloidal silver, the result after long term usage is usually Argyria. For decades, this modern day “snake oil” has been used to treat all sorts of illnesses like cancer, diabetes, and AIDS, without any science backing and linking colloidal silver to health benefits. There is in fact, more science out there discrediting and linking the product to adverse side effects.

What is Colloidal Silver?
Colloidal silver is a liquid that contains suspended microscopic silver particles. Silver being the ingredient in the dietary supplements, health foods, and vitamins sold. Colloidal silver products are usually sold over the internet and are not commonly found in stores like Walgreens, CVS, or other major pharmacies. In 2020, colloidal silver products were touted by some marketers and manufacturers as a cure or preventative for COVID-19 or corona. Colloidal silver is not considered a safe or effective treatment for any health condition even though it is marketed as being safe. Silver does not have any purpose in the body and is not an essential mineral. Instead of getting rid of the silver particles, they build up in the body and cause a silver toxicity called argyria.
Is Colloidal Silver Approved by the FDA?
The United States regulatory body responsible for approving dietary supplements is the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The laws for supplements are unfortunately far less strict than those for medications or drugs. Often, dietary supplements are sold without any sort of FDA approval and with little or no data about the effectiveness of the claims being made by the manufacturer or marketer.
That said, the FDA and Center for Disease Control (CDC) have moved swiftly against recent manufacturers touting its health benefits regarding protection against coronavirus. In a 1999 ruling, the FDA stated no products containing colloidal silver are considered safe or effective for any treatment. The FDA has banned the manufacturers of dietary supplements from claiming their products will cure, treat, or prevent any medical conditions. Still, manufacturers of colloidal silver products have flaunted them as a cure-all for many diseases and conditions. Colloidal silver is often marketed as an alternative to antibiotics and that the small, microscopic silver particles can kill harmful microorganisms such as coronavirus or COVID-19. There is little research and no proof that colloidal silver is a beneficial alternative to traditional antibiotics.
