Ozone is a colorless gas made up of 3 oxygen atoms. Found in the Earth’s stratosphere, ozone’s primary purpose is to protect the Earth from the sun’s ultraviolet radiation by absorption. However, many researchers believe it has many therapeutic effects. In medicine, ozone is used as an alternative therapy that improves the body’s intake and use of oxygen while activating the immune system. Ozone therapy is used to treat diseases and conditions by disinfecting the area around them. Not only does this limit the effects of bacteria, viruses, fungi and yeast, but ozone therapy also improves the body’s intake and use of oxygen and activates the immune system.
