The medicinal and healing properties of gold were first identified in Alexandria, Egypt, about 5000 years ago. Egyptians ingested gold to enhance their physical, mental, and spiritual health, as it increased the positive energy. With passing time, various uses of gold in the medical field were identified; from making tooth dentures and using as muscle pain relievers to restoring youth and perfect health.
In today’s world, colloidal gold is gaining a lot of importance due to the health benefits it offers. Colloidal gold is the suspension of nanoparticle-sized pure gold in water. Once in colloidal form, this gold exhibits different properties, due to an increased surface area.
