SARASOTA, Fla., Dec. 11, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Stephen L. Quinto may not have been born with a silver spoon in his mouth, but his breakthrough discovery has advanced colloidal silver technology by 120 years. Responsible for developing the technology that produces silver particles so fine that only state-of-the-art instruments such as an electron microscope can measure them, he launched Natural Immunogenics Corp., based on this proprietary, silver-based technology. As his family-owned business prepares to celebrate 20 years in 2019, its Sovereign Silver health care product maintains its status of the No.1 selling silver in North America, accomplishing Quinto’s mission to produce the finest mineral hydrosols as the first line of defense in the quest for health sovereignty with the world’s ever-increasing immune challenges.
Although this marks Natural Immunogenics’ 20th anniversary, the story really begins nearly 40 years ago in France, when Quinto was researching a safer and purer alternative to chlorine-based systems to keep his swimming pool free of bacteria and algae. In early 1997, one of his colleagues shared with him some information about a silver-copper ionization system for his pool. This led Quinto to realize that the colloidal type of silver produced at that time was essentially an elementary derivative of the same formulations that were widely used in medicine when he was a child. Recognizing that this technology had not evolved, this sparked inspiration for Quinto’s scientific quest to discover a new technology that would produce the ultimate refinement of colloidal silver for maximum health benefits.
“The manufacturing process we use is unique and has rapidly advanced the silver hydrosol category,” said David Barshis, CEO of Natural Immunogenics and the Sovereign Silver brand. “Our founder, Stephen Quinto, was able to refine the purest, smallest and most powerful particle size of silver at just 0.8 nanometers on average. We call it Bio-Active Silver Hydrosol because it is more than 98 percent bioactive, making it easier for the body to absorb. It’s the most promising universal solution for immune support in human history to date.”
Historically, silver has been used for thousands of years as one of the world’s strongest antimicrobial agents. Many physicians from ancient times used silver, including Hippocrates, the “father of medicine,” who used silver to treat an endless series of conditions. In the Middle Ages, silver spoons were given by wealthy godparents to babies as christening presents. It is often said that those “born with a silver spoon in their mouth” benefited from silver’s purifying and antimicrobial properties. During the bubonic plague, the “Black Death” of the 14th century, it was suggested that the poor may have been disproportionally affected in part because the rich were afforded extra immune support from their silverware and plates. Silver has also been used throughout the 20th century as the standard of care in burn centers, and NASA has used silver ions to purify the water for both its space shuttle program and International Space Station.
Natural Immunogenics operates out of its own custom, state-of-the-art GMP certified facility, where it continues to perfect colloidal mineral technology with some of the world’s most advanced analytical equipment and instrumentation, while using only glass bottles and ultra-pure USP grade water to protect the quality, purity and potency of its formula. As the leaders in silver hydrosol technology, Natural Immunogenics is focused on developing a range of new silver hydrosol products while concentrating future efforts on the development of other mineral colloids.
