- Is there supposed to be a taste to your liquid silver supplements?
There should be a very slight metallic taste to our liquid silver products. Please note that the metallic taste can vary from person to person.

Of course. There are no ingredients in any of our products that contain gluten or animal byproducts.
- How am I supposed to take/use your products?
All our silver liquid products are designed to be consumed orally on a daily basis to help support the immune system. It has also been asked if our products should be taken on an empty stomach or with food. On an empty stomach is ideal, but overall it really doesn't make too much of a difference.
Our silver gel can be used as often as you like and on any part of the skin to help promote natural healing. It is ideal for soothing, rejuvenating, and making the skin feel incredibly soft.
- Can I take your products in conjunction with other products?
We have not had any reported negative interactions with our products being used in conjunction with other products, even with having sold more than ten million units. However, this does not mean that there isn't something out there that could interact with our products, so if you have questions or concerns about a particular issue, please consult your healthcare provider.
- What is the shelf life of your products?
Three (3) years from the date of manufacture.
- Is your product effective against ________?
As stated earlier, because of current regulations, we are unable to make any specific claims relating to our products being used on a named illness or condition.
- Should I mix or dilute Silver Biotics® prior to consumption?
Silver Biotics® is designed to be consumed as is. No dilution or mixing with water or another solution is necessary.
- Can children or the elderly use your products?
We have never received any information indicating that our products should not be used by young children or the elderly, but if you have any questions or concerns with this, please consult your healthcare provider.
- Can pregnant or nursing mothers use your products?
Congratulations on your little one(s). Although we've never received any information indicating that our products should not be used by pregnant or nursing mothers, the only thing we are legally allowed to say is consult with your healthcare provider before using any supplements during pregnancy or while nursing.
- When is it best to take your liquid silver products?
Our liquid silver products are designed to be taken as a daily immune support product. We have also been asked if our products should be taken on an empty stomach or with food. On an empty stomach is ideal, but overall it really doesn't make too much of a difference. Additionally, some people take the product once a day in the morning, whereas others choose to break up their daily dose between morning and night so that the silver is always in the body working for them (in test work, we found that our silver hits its peak in the blood stream in about two hours after ingestion and is then eliminated from the body within 24 hours).
- Where can I purchase your products?
Our products are available through most major nutritional retailers, as well as thousands of local health food stores nationwide. For help finding our products near you please use our product locator.
- How does ABL control the safety and quality of the products?
All ABL products are manufactured under strict regulations issued by the various government agencies for supplement and cosmetic products. Additionally, our manufacturing facilities adhere to the rules and regulations of current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP).
- Why does ABL package the products in plastic instead of glass like other silver products?
Originally, when we started selling our products, we packaged them in glass bottles because we were told by others in the industry that silver needed to be stored in glass. We noticed through our quality control testing, that over long periods of time the ppm level of our products was sometimes being negatively affected by the glass containers. We had a university do some studies to find out which type of container worked best with our products. The university found that the glass containers could affect silver particles over time, pulling some of them out of water. Their testing also showed that PETE plastic containers did not affect our products at all. Since then, we have packaged our products in a quality, PETE food grade, BPA free plastic. This kind of plastic does not leach chemicals into our products. This ensures that we are providing our customers with a pure and consistent product, and that it is of the same quality every time they use it.
