Effects of Ozone

Biological effects of Ozone on human metabolism

Ozone acts on the metabolism by providing oxygen to cells and thus creating a regenerative effect, while simultaneously destroying bacterial organisms and virus that do not tolerate the influx of pure oxygen.

Among the clinically observed effects:Ozone

  • Direct disinfectant action, in local applications.
  • Antibacterial and antiviral effect due to peroxide formation.
  • Increase in the flexibility of red globules.
  • Increase of the production, always at red globule level, of the 2-3 difosfoglicerato, responsible for the liberation of O2 in tissues.
  • O2 metabolism improvement at red globules level because it induces an increase in the use of glucose and the breaking apart of acids, and also because of the enzyme activation that inhibits the free peroxides and radicals.
  • The powerful local, antiviral, disinfectant and antibacterial action, is responsible for a greater bactericidal action and for viral inactivación, produced by the oxidation of microorganisms. The antiseptic mechanism is similar to the one the organism uses naturally, with the formation by the leukocytes responsible for bacterial fagocitosis, of a molecule with oxidizing properties, similar to O3.
  • Intervention into the metabolism of proteins thanks to its affinity with the sulfhydrilic group.
  • Direct reaction with non-saturated oily acids that are transformed into hydrosolubles compounds.
  • Analgesic and antiinflammatory.
  • Activates blood circulation.
  • Modulation and stimulation of the immune system (by production of TNF and Interferon).


Adverse effects

Medical Ozone lacks any allergic reactions or interaction with drugs.

It is only contraindicated in cases of hyperthyroidism and favism.

Medical Ozone has O3 concentrations 30 times lower than when it is present in industrial use.
