Ozone is a bluish tinged gas composed of three oxygen atoms, which acts like "supercharged" oxygen. Ozone has 3 general properties that account for it's marvelous anti-aging effect:
1. First and foremost, ozone stimulates increased uptake and utilization of oxygen by stimulating the increased formation of anti-oxidant enzymes, as well as the enzymes responsible for the release of oxygen at the cellular level. These enzyme deficiencies are at the root of all chronic disease, and are the same enzymes that become depleted as a result of the aging process. Ozone is the most potent inducer of these enzymes that has ever been discovered. Some studies have shown that after patients are treated with ozone, oxygen utilization can be improved as much as 30-40 percent!
2. Ozone improves circulation. It does this by enhancing what is called the rheological properties of blood. This term refers to the flow characteristics of blood as a liquid. This effect enables more oxygen to reach the cells.
3. Lastly, ozone is a potent regulator of the immune system, correcting the age related decline in cellular mediated immunity that is a simple fact of life. It is cellular mediated immunity that is responsible for killing cancer cells and viruses.
