Silver Shield Webinar

This was a really good one and we learned a lot. One of the questions that was asked which may interest those of you who did not get a chance to watch the webinar is this:

How long does Silver Shield remain active? What is the shelf life?

They have tested Silver Shield Liquid at 8.5 yrs and it still killed
98.9% of MRSA.

The Silver Shield Gel, once opened, will get more oxygen in which may cause it to gradually turn amber. You might notice that if there’s any residue on the lid, it turns this color. It does not mean it has lost its effectiveness.

So, the end answer was that they considered shelf life to be at least 10 years for the liquid and 3-5 years for the gel.

Another tip was using Silver Shield Liquid in water to purify. A topic that was in the minds of many, at the time of the webinar, that had flooding from the recent hurricane. Dr. Pedersen said you could use 4 drops in a cup of water and to let it sit for 1.4 minutes to purify it.
