Colloidal gold particles.

Colloidal gold is a colloidal suspension of nanoparticles of gold in liquid. It is usually colored red or purple.

Colloidal gold, similar to colloidal silver, consists of small, microscopic gold particles suspended in distilled water. It is usually colored red or purple.

Colloidal gold can be safely used both internally as well as externally. These tiny gold particles from the colloid can penetrate through the cell membranes and can often provide relief from several health issues. Benefits include:

  • Anti-Inflammatory
  • Anti-Aging
  • Cellular Rejuvenation
  • Makes the Skin Glow 
  • Mood Enhancer
  • Cognitive Function
  • Treats Addiction

History of Colloidal Gold

During the Middle Ages, soluble gold, which is a solution containing gold salt, had a reputation for its curative property for various diseases.

In 1618, Francis Anthony, a philosopher, and member of the medical profession published a book called Panacea Aurea, sive tractatus duo de ipsius Auro Potabili 2 which introduced information on the formulation of colloidal gold and its many medical uses.

 Not long after that, in 1656, Nicholas Culpepper, an English botanist, published his book called Treatise of Aurum Potabile, which was solely about the medical uses of colloidal gold.

Supports Burn and Wound Healing

Colloidal gold can promote cellular regeneration, which aids in healing wounds, burns, and deeper tissue damage. It’s also been shown to have antibacterial properties, which can decrease the risk of infection.

Topical usage of CS may also help rashes and skin conditions such as eczema and mild forms of psoriasis.

Enhances Cognitive Health and Memory

The human body naturally produces trace amounts of gold -- approximately 0.2 mg in an average adult! This naturally occurring gold has been shown to support joint health, and help transmit electrical signals within the body. This means it could have a positive impact on memory and focus.

Heals the Skin

Known for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, studies showed that colloidal gold can penetrate deep into the skin and act as a carrier for other active ingredients. As such, it can help improve the efficacy of skincare products. Due to its soothing and rejuvenating properties, colloidal gold is often found in many skincare ingredients.

Medical studies suggested that gold nanoparticles can be used in the treatment of cancers.

CG has also been shown to accelerate the wound healing process.

Colloidal Gold Dosage

Dosages vary widely across studies and individual preferences, but generally, people take a teaspoon of colloidal gold for every 70 pounds of body weight.

Yeah! Got my colloidal gold!

No, I STILL can't leap tall buildings in a single bound but I have already had a strange experience.

I hadn't eaten lunch yet, so I put a couple of drops under the tongue. A few minutes later, as with the silver, I got super sleepy. Not groggy, like with the sedative-like effect, just sleepy.

I adjusted the curtains in case it was dark when I woke up from my "nap", checked the clock - 3:47 - and laid down.

I awoke with a bit of a start, trying to remember what I'd been thinking or dreaming about as it was a really good design idea. I wasn't sure which had happened - I.e. whether I'd been thinking or dreaming. But, I couldn't remember the idea and, even though I was extremely comfortable, I was also fully awake so I got up, went to look at the clock, thinking I'd slept a couple hours but it SAID 3:49. TWO minutes.

When I had the covid, I'd gone to bed and slept 3 days so I checked the day and date, just to be sure and, sure enough, though it didn't seem possible, I'd only been in bed 2 minutes.

It was the darnedest thing. Otherwise, I'm just fully awake, "refreshed" and that's about it. I put a couple of drops in my palm and sprayed in some silver and splatted it on my face which feels super soft, just a minute or so later so...that's interesting...

Anyway, I'm going to do a full rinse, swish and gargle in the morning and see what happens.

Hi Cindy,

Thanks for the great feedback on CG. Fascinating! It reminded me of a practice I learned a long time ago to induce incredible dreams. Since you love to experiment, you might try this one. It's fun!

You drop a gold ring (wedding band is best) into an 8-ounce glass of water and set it in the sun between 8:00 am and 9:00 am for only 10 minutes. You're supposed to do it at the minute point when you were born if you have that information. So if you were born at 10:25pm, you would start the ten minutes at 8:25am. HOWEVER, I am not so sure that the minute part is really that important. One would have to experiment a lot and see if it really makes a difference. But what is important, in my opinion, is that it is the early morning sun and you only want to do it for 10 minutes max.

Then before you go to bed, you drink your golden water, sans the ring, of course!

(And again, if you want to follow the practice, you would drink it at night at the minute point of your birth - viz, 10:25pm).


I did this a number of times in the 1990s after I learned about it, and can attest that it does induce INTENSE dreaming and great dream recall!

I may have to start making colloidal gold now that you've brought it up. Sounds amazing. Thanks for sharing!

Hi Deirdre! That's super interesting as God is purported to promote vivid dreams. Sort of makes buying colloidal gold seem like a waste though, doesn't it?

I'd read of silver's unique and particular relationship with water - shedding silver ions and whatnot - and the use of copper mesh filters - but not gold. I don't think I have anything gold...I'll have to check...I wonder if that's the purpose of teacups with 24k gilded rims...

Actually...I think I MAY have some 24k gold leaf...I might see what I can do with that.

I took a regular dose of the gold, this morning, but don't feel any effects. Or, at least, none significant enough to notice.

My face feels sort of rough so I've sprayed it with silver, to see if there's a difference. I'll wait and post this to see if there is...

time passing...

Okay - it's soaked in and dried and feels a BIT smoother so I've done the gold drops with silver like I did yesterday...

more time passing...

Weird. The roughness sort of smoothed out but it also rubs off - like flakes. Feels smooth to touch, but with little bumps. Doesn't generally feel all that good. Feels dry. I've sprayed my face with silver and don't remember if feeling dry, after. So...I don't know. Later, I'll try just gold and distilled water, see what happens.

Also did a silver rinse, swish and gargle and it tasted bitter and my mouth feels dry. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing, as "bitter" is often quite anti-microbial - at least with herbs - but I think I will explore them separately, first. And possibly combine them later on. I don't know.

Obviously, the first line in my previous post should read, "That's super interesting as GOLD is purported to promote vivid dreams."

That said, I have to say that I'm not impressed with the gold. And from what I've read so far, It doesn't appear to do anything silver doesn't do. I suppose, if one isn't taking colloidal silver, it might have a profound effect but...I'm going to stick with silver.

Colloidal Gold is supposed to primarily be used for mental health issues (anxiety, depression, etc). In fact, I've never heard it used in place of silver at all. It's completely different.

Hi Katzie!

Silver has been reported to do the same things. Not as dramatically, perhaps, as it does in people who take gold who aren't already taking silver but they happen. A feeling of well-being is obvious, just by the nature of the testimonials about resolving other issues. And it's even possible that elevating the mental and emotional state of a person adds significantly to its efficacy, overall.

As silver brings one up out of a pit of serious illness, they're not likely to be aware of much of anything else. Obviously they're going to be over-the-moon but is it because of the silver or because they felt hopeless, prior?

I don't know but I've lost interest in gold, for now, because I've really only begun my own exploration of silver so...I'm going to stick with that. For now. I still have a bottle of colloidal gold so...I'll probably also be looking for some use for that...who knows? Maybe it has even greater effects that are being overshadowed by the more dramatic effects people are focused on...
