Nanosilver Power
The medical community recognizes the ability of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) to inhibit disease-causing germs and other pathogens. This has caused industries to use nano-ionic silver agents to fortify everyday items.

How silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) work

1. Silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) release silver ions (Ag+).

2. Ag+ is absorbed by the pathogen.

3. Ag+ inhibits cell division and replication of the pathogen.

Accrediting the use of AgNPs

The following organizations formally recognize the effectiveness of nano-ionic silver agents in health and have certified its use in consumer products.

U.S. Food and Drug Administration

United States Environmental Protection Agency

The Society of International sustaining growth for Antimicrobial, Japan

Korea Testing & Research Institute for Chemical Industry

FITI Testing & Research Institute
