What is Ozone
What is ozone?
Very simply put, trees and plants produce oxygen (O2). The oxygen molecule is lighter than the surrounding air so it rises up into the atmosphere toward the sun. Once these oxygen molecules have reached between 20-30km into the atmosphere, the sun’s ultraviolet rays convert the oxygen into ozone (O3), a form of “super oxygen”.
Since the ozone molecule with its extra oxygen atom is now heavier than the surrounding air, it begins to descend toward earth again. On its journey down toward earth, the ozone molecules purify the air by destroying toxic elements and pollutants, also neutralising pathogens such as bacteria and viruses.
Have you ever smelt that fresh smell after a thunderstorm?
That is how ozone is generated; by the lightning striking through the air during a thunderstorm splitting the oxygen molecule to form ozone molecules.
Did you know that ozone is nature’s most powerful disinfectant & purifier and it kills bacteria 3000 times faster than chlorine?
Why is our health deteriorating?
Many of the trees and plants we rely upon for oxygen for our health is being destroyed. Global warming, pollution from cars, more factories being built are also reasons that are affecting our health. Less oxygen is thus being converted into ozone, which is desperately needed to clean up all these pollutants. This means that we are breathing in far less healthier oxygen compared to that of 50 years ago. This of course explains why we are experiencing such poor health.
The ozone that comes down to earth and cleans up all the pollutants in the air that we breathe, is what our cells need to keep our bodies healthy.
