What is ozone?

Ozone, or O3, is the tri-atomic form of oxygen. Stated simply, it is a molecule composed of three oxygen atoms.

O3 is one of nature’s most powerful oxidizers (second only to element Flourine). O3 has been used as a powerful organic cleaner for years. Nearly all bottled water is treated with O3. And many municipal water systems around the world utilize ozone to treat drinking water.

The History of O3

The ability to create and utilize O3 is over 200 years old. Discovered in 1799, ozone’s natural purification properties have been applied as a food preservative and water purification. In 1982, the FDA declared ozone as a safe use in bottled water. In 2001 the FDA approved O3 as a food additive and was established as GRAS (Generally Accepted As Safe).

How does O3 work?

O3 rapidly oxidizes organisms like bacteria and virus it comes into contact with, then converts safely back into Oxygen (O2).
