Metallic silver has been used for centuries as a natural antibacterial agent for wound care, and even water treatment. Miners and early settlers added a silver dollar to the water barrel to kill bacteria in the water. Royalty gave their children silver spoons to suck on to prevent the bubonic plague. The ASAP solution is a silver solution with the patented process of turning small, bacteria-killing particles of silver into a safe and highly effective liquid. The patented Silver-Sol Technology® found in ASAP Solution is so effective that even after being diluted to 1/200th of the original 10 ppm level, the ASAP Silver liquid killed all the bacteria in filtered river water in less than 20 minutes. At 1/100th it killed all the bacteria in filtered raw river water in less than 5 minutes. The ASAP silver technology has been proven safe in 20 different safety studies, even when tested at 200 times the normal adult dosage, the technology was found to be completely non-toxic.
