Ozone is an activated form of oxygen. Oxygen we breath (normal oxygen) is two oxygen atoms bound together (diatomic oxygen). Ozone is three oxygen atoms bound together. 

Ozone is a very energized molecule and reacts with other molecules very quickly. In the water and body fluids , ozone forms Reactive Oxygen Species or ROS

Ozone and ROS do a number of things in the body:

- React with microbes and destroy them

- React with cells in the body to stimulate:
       - antioxidant production 
       - release of wound healing and growth factors
       - the immune system

- oxidizes fats in the blood to produce aldehydes and ketones which also react with cells to    stimulate:
      - antioxidant production 
      - release wound healing and tissue growth factors
      - the immune system
