How do ozone oils work?
Well, this is where it gets a little complex but stay with me.
Ozonides are produced when ozone reacts with the unsaturated hydrocarbons present in oils. Organic ozonides, made from unsaturated fats, decompose rapidly into oxygen compounds, such as aldehydes, ketones, and peroxides. The question is how do ozonides work?
During normal metabolic reactions within the body reactive oxygen species (ROS) and other cytotoxic substances are produced. In normal conditions, the body would neutralize these substances via enzymes such as superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase, and glutathione peroxidase.
