The EPA Standard had been the ICP MS test; it proved great to detect "base elements" such as Silver and other non-noble metals, but NOT for Gold and other Noble Precious Metals.
After doing careful research, we found that the ICP tests are not for Gold and Noble metal elements.
Gold and other noble metal particles evaporate along with the H20 when the Plasma Arc is applied to the solution to detect the noble metals.
It is strange that 4000 PPM Colloidal Silver shows an encouraging mcg per dose, while Gold and other noble metals at 4000 PPM report an extremely low mcg.
By FDA Law, GoldenGevity has to report what is on the Laboratory Certificate of Analysis even though the test is not accurate for noble metals.
We still believe that 4000 PPM Gold has just as much of the element as does Silver, but at the current time, we are limited by the boundaries of science, and science has not developed the right equipment to test for Gold Trace Minerals in water.
However, that should not disqualify our products from your consideration. We have many long-term customers that love the Colloidal Gold products and continuously reorder.
Just remember, Atomic Particle Colloids are the newest product since Nikola Tesla (who also used and prescribed Colloidal Silver).
Being so new to the world, scientists have not studied our products as they have nanoparticle colloids nor developed equipment to properly test for Gold and Noble Metal Minerals in Drinking water.
Rest assured, you are getting the finest products in the world!
