What is Ozone?

Ozone (O3) is a highly reactive gas composed of three oxygen atoms. It is both a natural and a man-made product that occurs in the Earth’s upper atmosphere (the stratosphere) and lower atmosphere (the troposphere).  Ozone has two properties of interest to human health. First, it absorbs UV light, reducing human exposure to harmful UV radiation that causes skin cancer and cataracts. Second, when inhaled, it reacts chemically with many biological molecules in the respiratory tract, leading to a number of adverse health effects.


he most important properties of ozone are: Disinfection, deodorization, Oxygenation. Ozone acts on the air, eliminating viruses, bacteria, fungi and spores, thereby helping us to prevent diseases and infections. Similarly Ozone destroys various environmental pollutants purifying fact is so powerful that removes residual solvent vapors that are so harmful when inhaled, which can cause different types of cancer. In water, ozone free ion traps calcium and magnesium, and then acts on bacteria and fungi obtaining a 100% pure water without leaving toxic waste because it is rapidly converted to oxygen. The property offers a water rich in oxygen, which helps problems Gastritis, Colitis and acidity, among others. Ozone eliminates odors and flavors caused by foreign substances in the water, also removes residual chlorine and other compounds that alter the water.
