Many people know about colloidal silver and its proven germicidal and antibacterial properties. Colloidal gold, on the other hand, is not quite as well-known. This is unfortunate, since this clear, tasteless colloid – which is made from tiny gold particles suspended in water – provides us with similarly impressive health benefits. Whereas colloidal silver cleanses our bodies of microbes and bacteria, however, colloidal gold has a different purpose: it improves our mental faculties and rejuvenates our bodies.
Improves cognitive function – According to a study by Dr. Joel Dill and Souhaila McReynolds for the Journal of Frontier Sciences, subjects who ingested 30 milligrams per day of colloidal gold over a one-month period experienced noticeable improvements in IQ. Unfortunately, the study also showed that the subjects’ IQ levels returned to their normal levels between 1-3 months after they stopped taking it. Therefore, if you wish to take colloidal gold to improve your intelligence, you’ll need to take it on an uninterrupted, long-term basis.
Boosts mood – Colloidal gold can help boost the moods of people who suffer from low vibrational states such as depression, sadness, anxiety, and frustration. If you suffer from these states and find that cheaper and more accessible natural mood boosters such as St. John’s wort and cacao don’t help you, consider taking 15-30 milligrams of colloidal gold per day for four weeks and see whether it helps.
Anti-inflammatory properties – According to a study by Dr. Guy Abraham and Dr. Peter Himmel for a 1997 edition of the Journal of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine, patients who were treated for pain with colloidal gold reported suffering less than those who received the placebo. Colloidal gold can also ease the swelling caused by inflammatory conditions like rheumatism, arthritis, tendinitis, and bursitis.
Rejuvenates the body – Taking colloidal gold over an extended period has a tremendously positive impact on our overall health. Firstly, it can rejuvenate our glands and regulate our temperature, resulting in fewer chills, hot flushes, night sweats, and other temperature-based conditions. Secondly, it can stimulate our nerves, thereby decreasing nerve pressure. Thirdly, it functions as an aphrodisiac that can alleviate impotency and boost our sexual health. For these reasons, colloidal gold is also known to boost longevity.
Colloidal Gold and Colloidal Silver
Since colloidal gold has a completely different purpose to colloidal silver, some people choose to utilize them both. This is perfectly fine since silver and gold don’t conflict, and are non-toxic. It is a good idea, however, to take them separately rather than mixed together. As with many supplements, it is best to start taking small amounts of the colloid first (e.g. one teaspoon’s worth) and see how your body reacts to it. Metal allergies are not common, but they do exist.
