Structured silver helps modulate immune response but its real benefit is that there are fewer germs afflicting the immune system. Since our germ-filled environment can overwork the immune system, it must prioritize its efforts. This means the immune system fights germs first, then builds and rebuilds tissue if it has the capacity to do so. By reducing the ever-present germ burden on an overworked immune system, the ability to heal increases significantly. People with autoimmune diseases can be confident in using structured silver on the skin and inside the body because it reduces inflammation, activates stem cells, and promotes normal healing.
