History of Silver
Throughout history, people have taken advantage of the antimicrobial properties of silver.
The Greeks and Romans stored water in silver as it was believed this kept the liquids fresh.
During the plagues in Europe, wealthy families ate from silver plates and utensils, in the hope that silver might protect them from the disease that was claiming their neighbours’ lives.
The expression ‘born with a silver spoon in the mouth’ had a dual meaning. Not only did it refer to wealth, it also referred to health. People were eating off silver spoons because they knew that an infection couldn’t survive on silver.
Without knowing it people were taking advantage of the natural ANTIMICROBIAL properties of silver.
Today many products are produced using silver to give antibacterial properties to that surface. Silver antibacterial socks, silver soap, silver-lined curtains in hospitals, silver-lined bandages for treating burns, silver-lined bandaids, silver toothbrushes, etc.
How Silver works
Silver interrupts a cell’s ability to form chemical bonds essential to its survival. Bacteria, viruses and fungi need the bonds for their oxygen metabolism.
The Antibacterial agent is physically embedded inside tiny microfibers.
The silver-based agent that Norwex uses is based on micro, not nano-technology.
