- Silver is a valuable noble metal with antimicrobial and antifungal properties that have been known for thousands of years.
- Bactericidal properties of silver were used in Egypt, in ancient Indian medicine, at the times of the Roman Empire, and also in the Middle Ages.
- Storing liquids in silver vessels, drinking from silver cups or throwing silver coins into milk, wine or water extended the durability of the liquids and kept them fresh for a longer period of time.
- Storing food in silver vessels and using silver cutlery saved people from contracting plague, or the Black Death. It was obvious that pathogens causing the illness could not survive when silver was present. Thanks to the scientific development, the 19th century showed the presence of bacteria and the ability of silver to reduce the number of bacteria.
- Silver is antiseptic that has an effect on all types of bacteria and yeast (fungi), the risk of resistence there is very low. In contrast, silver can suppress infection caused by bacteria that are resistant and do not respond to regular antibiotics.
