The danger of silver toxicity
The problems with consuming excess silver apart from the obvious symptoms is how silver can affect major organs, this metal is capable of doing serious damage, here are some examples:
Silver is used as an antibacterial agent in many products we use everyday, one of the important aspects of this is that humans need certain good bacteria’s to stay healthy and while we consume and or have silver toxicity we are constantly killing our good bacteria stores & damaging our vitamin K production in the intestines, this is a big problem.
Gastrointestinal damage from the loss of good gut bacteria leads to leaky gut syndrome, this often then leads to a host of health problems such as allergies & in-sensitivities, nutritional imbalances, syndrome X and auto immune disease.
Taking probiotics such as acidophilus and or vitamin K supplements has no effect on improving your good bacteria in the gut while you are toxic with silver. People who have gastrointestinal disorders such as leaky gut, IBS (Irritable bowel syndrome) & Coeliac disease should test for silver toxicity.
Silver also affects fertility in women, silver is attracted to the uterus where it can disrupt female hormones preventing pregnancy and causing a host of female hormone related heath problems, click here to learn more.
