Q: IS OPTI•MIST OK FOR EVERY DAY ?
A: It's safe to do so but you probably won't have to. Unlike clear 'colloidal' silver (ionic silver oxide), OPTI•MIST can be used daily without risk of Argyria (blue skin), that's caused by healthy cells absorbing silver ions. OPTI•MIST is true colloidal silver, clusters of atoms that are much more effective against pathogens and way too big to be absorbed by healthy cells.
Q: IS IT SAFE FOR KIDS AND PETS ?
A: OPTI•MIST Sprays & Gel are becoming the go-to products for a soothing, non-medicated way to boost the natural immune response in people (and other mammals) regardless of age (or species). Pet owners have so far expressed great relief when they used OPTI•PET for their horses, goats, dogs, cats and rabbits.
Q: WHAT IS 'BIO-ACTIVE' SILVER ANYWAY ?
A: This refers to metallic silver or nanoAg - electrostatically charged clusters of silver atoms surrounded by an electron cloud. They self-assemble and release electrons on contact with pathogens, killing them. Approved use is constantly expanding in the medical and dental industries due to the high safety and efficacy profile this material provides, especially in low concentrations. NanoAg is currently the most biofriendly form of antimicrobial silver.
Q: IF THIS STUFF IS SO GREAT... ?
A: Why isn't it seen everywhere ? The simple reason is it's not patent-able. There's no way to 'corner' the market with this magical material. As simple as it seems, that's all it takes to make something so beneficial become so expensive and hard to find. This same material purchased from a laboratory supplier sells for $900+ liter.
Q: HOW OFTEN SHOULD I USE OPTI•MIST ?
A: OPTI•MIST users usually discover that they only need to use it a few times before the problem is resolved, and remains solved for longer and longer periods. Please review the usage guidelines on the product page. Discontinue use when the condition subsides. There is no dependency or withdrawal associated with OPTI•MIST and it does not cause argyria (blue skin syndrome). USE ONLY WHEN NEEDED. Please consult a physician if your discomfort persists.*
Q: WHAT MAKES OPTI•MIST UNIQUE ?
A: OPTI•MIST is uniquely metallic, not ionic. Prepared by our proprietary green-synthesis method, metallic silver has become the safest and most effective form of antimicrobial silver known to science. This unique non-toxic material demonstrates both antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties for all mammals in numerous studies globally. Unlike 'Clear-as-Water' ionic silver.
Q: WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS ?
A: OPTI•MIST is all about Rapid Results. When used as suggested, results come right away. Please consult a physician if your discomfort persists. USE ONLY WHEN NEEDED.
Q: WHY NO GLASS BOTTLES ?
A: Bio-Active silver is a very stable molecule that is not sensitive to light due to its non-ionic state. This allows us to avoid using breakable glass bottles, yet retain superior potency. Ionic silver oxide (clear colloidal silver) degrades in light by oxidizing and agglomerating on the sides and bottom of the container, diminishing its effects significantly. OPTI•MIST, however, can be kept in a clear bottle in full daylight and remain stable and effective for years. Heat is never a problem for OPTI•MIST either - however it should always avoid freezing temperatures.
Q: WHY IS OPTI•MIST YELLOW ?
A: That's the Surface Plasmon Resonance effect on our silver colloids. It means the electron cloud around OPTI•MIST particles are interacting with light photons, absorbing blue light, making it appear yellow by leaving only green and red light visible to the eye = Yellow. For example, in mild concentrations, silver colloids will appear yellow whereas gold colloids will appear red. Color is greatly affected by the base material used and the size, shape and distribution of the colloid. Also, the colloid size to color relationship is well known and can be mathematically quantified by the Mies and Rayleigh scattering theory.
Q: WHAT HAPPENS TO THE COLLOIDS ONCE THEY'RE IN / ON MY BODY ?
A: Silver will eventually get blown out into a tissue, or washed off the skin. Silver that is swallowed is eliminated by the bowels. OPTI•MIST colloids are too big to be absorbed by healthy cells, or cross any blood/brain barriers, so they do their job, then get sloughed off and discarded. However, Clear colloidal silver (ionic silver oxide) can react with sulfur and selenium compounds in the body to produce non-soluble particles which are larger than ions and become immobile. Metallic silver (true colloidal silver) has very low reactivity with stomach acid, and does not create the compounds which are found in the skin of Argyria victims. Scanning electron microscope studies of Argyria victims show that the silver stuck in the skin is silver sulfide and silver selenide resulting from ionic silver.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: GRANDMA'S 'COLLOIDAL' SILVER & OPTI•MIST, WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE ?
A: SIDE-BY-SIDE COMPARISON: Any clear-as-water silver solution is most often Ionic Silver Oxide. ISO is primarily composed of individual (+)positively charged silver ions suspended temporarily in water - usually around 98% ionic, 2% colloidal. ISO is unstable and quickly oxidizes and should NOT be consumed internally. To slow oxidation it is bottled in either amber or cobalt glass. OPTI•MIST is around 98% colloidal, 2% ionic. This can be revealed visually by the Tyndall effect seen with ionic silver oxide, and the lack of it for OPTI•MIST. Although laboratory testing demonstrated that both ionic silver and metallic colloids indeed kill pathogens, metallic colloids did it much more effectively while requiring much less. ISO was also observed to be 25x more toxic to human fibroblast cells and responsible for the condition known as Argyria. Comparatively, it takes 68000 ionic particles to equal the efficacy of only 29 metallic colloids of ø15nm diameter. Differences also appear internally. Healthy human cell membranes transport ions into them and keep large particles out. OPTI•MIST colloids are too large to enter healthy cells, being about 100 times larger than a silver ion. Healthy cell membranes constantly attract and absorb the ions needed for metabolism, such as sulphur and selenium, so the majority of the silver ions in clear 'colloidal' silver will be captured by normal healthy cells, rendering them useless against pathogens. Scanning electron microscope studies of Argyria victims show that the silver stuck in the skin is silver sulfide and silver selenide resulting from ionic silver. There is no electrostatic attraction between metallic silver and healthy cell membranes, only (+)positively charged pathogens, making it the safer and more effective choice.
