The overuse of antibiotics and antifungals in the treatment of infectious diseases has led to the development of antibiotic resistance. As a result, it is necessary to develop new natural products with pharmacological properties to treat several infections. Ozonized olive oil is one of the most valuable products for our health, which has higher antimicrobial activity and a higher peroxide index.
The ozonation process causes changes in the chemical composition of the oil giving new biological properties to the olive oil. It is amazing how patients who were unable to treat wounds with antibiotics were able to heal their wounds with ozonized olive. What is the secret? Ozonated olive oil has antibacterial properties and destroys, fungi, and other pathogens sterilizing the wound. Also, stimulates the healing process, which no antibiotic can achieve.
Doctors and therapists use ozonated oil to treat a variety of skin conditions, such as dermatitis, acne, pressure ulcers, etc. As well as in skincare after laser therapy, surgery, and sunburn. It is also a good therapeutic agent in the treatment of asthma, gastrointestinal ulcers, and intestinal infections.
HOW TO OZONATE OLIVE OIL
Shortly after patenting his first ozone generator, Nikola Tesla (in 1900) began marketing an ozonated olive oil to medical doctors. Nikola Tesla created ozonated oil by bubbling ozone through olive oil in the presence of a magnetic field for weeks. In essence, what is occurring is a catalytic reaction that actually burns the olive oil. One of the resultant compounds is C10H18O3, with the hydrogen and carbon complex. By 1904, ozonated olive oil, also known as Glycozone, began appearing in medical literature, such as “The Medical Uses of Hydrozone and Glycozone”, 9th Edition, by New York Chemist Charles Marchland.
The efficient method to inject ozone is to add solvent to the oil. This will make it easier to pump the oil through the ozone injection Venturi system, accelerating the reaction and allowing complete ozonation of the oil. We do not recommend bubbling ozone through oil (unless a very small amount is being treated) because it is inefficient and the reaction could take days or even weeks. In addition, it is possible to spark a fire or explode if you mix oil and concentrated ozone improperly. To be effective, it’s therefore imperative that safety protocols and procedures are established.
When a few gallons of oil require treatment, Absolute Ozone® ATLAS 30 or even NANO 15 will be able to produce desired results efficiently and cost-effectively. Because of the high concentration of the Absolute Ozone® Generators, you will have a fast reaction. So, you will save a lot of time and money in the process.
HOW LONG SHOULD OLIVE OIL BE OZONATED FOR?
The time depends on each particular process, for example for a bubbling ozone system, the average time is approximately 2-3 days. The industry has a much shorter time because uses the redox technique to prepare Ozonized oil. The ozone literally burns the oil, resulting in three primary organic peroxides. In other words, the first peroxide formed reacts until forms C10H18O3. The final stage is visible, as everything transforms into a clear gel. While some people believe that fully ozonated olive oil is an ozone carrier, it is not, ozonated olive oil will only retain ozone gas for a short time.
