Argentate is a liquid mixture of ionic silver in distilled water.
Positively charged (ionic) silver changes the electrical potential or frequency of the cells. This positive charge acts as a catalyst to make oxygen available to the cells. Disease causing organisms cannot survive in an oxygen-rich environment and simply die off and are eliminated. Silver may disable enzymes that pathogens use to reproduce.
Multiple test have shown reduction in a wide range in pathogens, including bacteria, yeast and fungi. This is a product every cat owner should have in their medicine cabinet.
