How Does Silver Work?
Argentum (silver) and its compounds have astringent (possibly caustic) and antiseptic (mainly denaturation of protein) effects. When used in proper concentrations and in suitable medical forms, it promotes healing of wounds and ulcers.(Source: Fadrhoncová A., Pharmacotherapy of dermatological diseases, pg. 130, Grada,1999)
How Does Zeolite Work?
Zeolites are crystalline silicates of alkali metals. Its uniqueness lies in the fact that the spatial arrangement of the atoms forms channels and cavities of constant dimensions. Solid, liquid and gaseous state substances may be trapped in these channels. In medicine, this is used as a carrier of active agents. Silver bound to zeolite (silver zeolite) has proven antimicrobial effects on microorganisms. Zeolite supports these effects.
