History of Copper/Silver Ionization
The MineralPURE system incorporates technology that was actually discovered thousands of years ago and has been used in various applications.
The ancient Egyptians kept their water in silver containers to prevent contamination.
Early American Pioneers
Early American pioneers moving west across the continent put copper and silver coins in large wooden water casks to provide them with safe drinking water during their long voyage. When the wagons rolled, the agitation rolled, thus causing the coins to discharge ions (an electrically charged particle) into the water. The copper ions help control algae while the silver ions help control bacteria and viruses.
During the plague-ridden Middle Ages, mothers knew to place a silver spoon in an infant’s mouth to ward off disease.
Silver sulfadiazine is the most widely used antibacterial treatment for burns or open wounds. Many people die from severe burns because of lack of bacteria treatment.
Dentists have used silver to fill cavities for decades because of its strong antibacterial features.
