I think that their prices are a bit closer than that. However, Mesosilver spends a lot on adverstising (such as their ads at Natural News - and those babies don't come cheap!). They also spent a very large amount of money setting up their production facility as well as on testing equipment.
Utopia Silver spent quite a bit on their production equipment too - it is totally unlike that of just about all other companies (instead of low voltage electrolysis, think high voltage star wars particle beam technology). Plus, their production costs are much higher than some might imagine. For example, to insure the very purest water they have a system of three in-line filters for their spring water and the replacement elements for each filter, which are changed out several times each year, cost more than the most popular top rated home generators.
Utopia Silver does have a buy-one, get-one free offer for new customers and, last time I checked, they gave a lifetime buy-one, get-one free offer of their commercial solutions to anyone who bought their Silver Bullet home generator. Plus, they often run specials of up to 25% off as well as offer the CureZone discount code of LR001 for 15% off the silver or just about any other item they have.provided it is not currently on sale,
I think that both companies make excellent products. For that matter, I think homemade silver solutions made with the better quality generators are fine for most things - but I would highly recommend having some of the really good stuff around just in case something truly evil comes along.
I don't really know what to say - it is very, very seldom that I have seen anything but great reports for Advanced Colloidal Silver and pets. Time and again I have seen reports of it knocking bugs out in short order. Some kennels and vets have used it to totally prevent parvo after having a history of problems. We use it for our found dogs and found cats all the time. Our 14 year old dog still frolics like a puppy. And, I once used it along with other items to treat one of our found dogs after it was attacked, bitten and bloodied by a rabid skunk (no vaccines for any of our pets).
Perhaps it was a really bad and proliferative bug and more doseage was needed? Our skunk bitten dog got pure colloidal silver to drink for days and then 50% water and silver after that, taperiing off to a few tablespoons after a couple of weeks and now a couple teaspoons or so a week as we do with all our animals.
Garden of Life's Primal Defense is an outstanding product. I highly recommend it to one and all.
