Comments on John's rebuttal and analysis: Trying to think this thru. Of importance as I see it, is really only concerning the oxidation of the highly ionic produced variety and its life span in our system. Tho if we realize that it is only the Ions of either variety that produce the wanted effects, the debate may quickly be shelved on account of the Metalloprotein's role. So ultimately the Q is whether either is distinctly superior and whether either has any unwanted outcomes.
Of course the Tyndall Effect will reveal particles of numerous sizes in a Colloidal Silver, be they ionic or elemental, as long as they are insoluably dispersed. Oxides, of course, would not produce this effect.
I question whether Ions are going to be switching their valence states, back and forth as described, in my understanding of how ions are produced and become re-balanced in nature, even if they become quickly unstable thru the electrolysis, at an end point I think we would either have an ionic colloid or we would not, and in the idea that the waters actions on the ions would be unavoidable, per se, dosn't bear witness to further investigation as to the Ions fleeting existence. see: Tens photography of sample. The clear product vs tinted and subsequent to makings use as an acceleratedly successful antibiotic.
The Ionic Colloid we produce with the "Smallest ratio of amps to volts" LVDC generator, tirckles off of the silver rods, producing less than nm sized particles and also has "no" precipitation after multiple months of storage
The noticeable positive effects we experience from using the clear, seemingly, apparantly non elemental, LVDC generated IS is also germaine. (especially when I compare the outcomes from all the different retail CS purchases and the two other CS generators I have used, but of course this is subjective and not really a valid point in the discussion)
I can only assume that John is either unfamiliar with, disbelieving of, or choosing to ignoring the posted science of the Mettaloprotein function, whereby all ions are protected from the stomachs deconstructing environment (thus even toxic heavy metal ions are assimilated. note: Silver is a noble metal), thus rendering any needful choice between targets determining which CS should be ingested to be specious.
