What is ozone?

Ozone is a gas consisting of a combination of 3 oxygen atoms. It was discovered in 1785 by the Dutch physicist Martinus van Marum and synthesised for the first time in 1840 by the German chemist, Friedrich Schönbien.

At an environmental level, the ozone is one of the main gases in the Earth’s atmosphere, and its main function is to filter and absorb ultraviolet light from the sun’s rays.

Ozone is a gas that can be created in a controlled environment, stored and then diluted with water to irrigate the area to be treated.

The interest in applying ozone for therapeutic purposes is due to its antiseptic, disinfecting and antioxidant properties.

The first countries that studied and applied ozone therapies were Russia, Germany, Cuba and Spain. Since its discovery, the properties of ozone have been studied and increasingly applied in different areas of medicine.
