Nano technology is a rapidly growing science of producing and utilizing nano-size particles that measure in nanometers (1 nm - 1 billionth of a metre). Once nano material that is having an early impact on healthcare products is nano-silver.
For thousands of year Silver has been used as an ingredient on alternative medicines, such as Ayurveda and is known to have anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. It is now scientifically proven that SilverNano ions can effectively sterilize over 650 types of bacteria. The SilverNano particles typically measuring 25nm have a relatively large surface area due to their tiny particle size. This increases the contact area with bacteria or fungi, vastly improving its bactericidal and fungicidal effectiveness.
The SilverNano when in contact with bacteria and fungus adversely affects cellular metabolism and inhibits cell growth. the SilverNano suppresses respiration, basal metabolism of electron transfer system, and transport of substrate in the microbial cell membrane. The SilverNano inhibits multiplication and growth of those Bacteria and fungi which cause infection, odour , itchiness and cores.
