As part of the market product control activities carried out by the Ministry of
Health, it seized Zinc Coloidal, Plata Coloidal (Colloidal Silver), Cobre Coloidal, and Oro Coloidal products in the market without sanitary registration, so the Ministry cannot guarantee safety and efficacy; In addition, its label presents unapproved therapeutic indications (disease prevention, strengthening of the immune, bone, and circulatory systems, among others.)

In addition, Facebook pages claiming the Coloidal products offer a cure, treatment or prevention of the COVID-19 virus in the country. These products can come in many varieties, including dietary supplements and other foods, as well as products that are purported to be medications, medical devices, or vaccines.
