What is Ozone?
Oxygen is O2 and ozone is O3. Ozone is an activated, trivalent (three atoms) form of oxygen. Over a period of 20-30 minutes, ozone breaks down into two atoms of regular oxygen by giving up one atom of singlet oxygen leaving a single, reactive oxygen atom. Medical ozone is made when medical grade oxygen is activated using an ozone generator. All of our cells need a continuous supply of oxygen to fuel the chemical reactions that generate energy, detoxify internal and externally derived waste products and to maintain production of structural cell components. Any decrease in the availability of oxygen due to shallow breathing, poor posture, deoxygenated water, no exercise, refined foods, smoking, environmental pollution or exposure to carbon monoxide, reduces the optimal performance of our essential cellular functions.
