Here are twelve benefits of using ozonated water to safeguard the quality of our water
Nowadays, there is clear evidence of the explicit benefits of water for our health. It helps, for example, with body hydration, regulating body temperature and improving blood oxygen circulation, among other effects. But what do we really know about water-related risks?
Generally, people tend to think that just because they live in developed countries there aren’t any serious risks involved with the water they consume. The truth is that water can contain, if not properly managed, different viruses and bacteria, among them we can count Pseudomonas aeruginosa, which is an infectious bacteria. This bacteria has the potential to cause chronic disease in humans, plants and animals. Because of this, it is important to be careful with our water hygiene and to implement all necessary measures and run a proper pseudomonas risk assessment.
But knowing this, what can be done to decrease the risks of encountering bacteria and viruses in our water? One option we have on the table is to utilise ozonated water. This is being more and more recognised by experts in this field, thanks to the advantages of its use.
Ozonated water is not only very effective removing viruses and bacteria thanks to the ozone’s oxidising properties, which makes the water safer and healthier, but also this fluid has itself more benefits than chlorinated water. Over the following lines we will go through twelve of those benefits:
1. It helps improve your nutrition
Not washing your vegetables or doing it poorly can involve risks of infections and toxicity due to bacteria, viruses, moulds, spores and chemical fertilizers, among other possible contaminants, that usual water can’t eliminate. That is why many people use chemical disinfectants, but this is not only an unnecessary expenditure of money but also harmful to the environment. Therefore, it is worth remembering that a good routine of washing aliments such as fruits, vegetables or fish with ozonated water will disinfect them totally, in a healthier way than other kinds of chemical disinfectants.
2. It removes odours
This liquid does not have any sort of taste or odour so it can help us feel food flavours enhanced. Moreover, its own deodorizer characteristic will make certain food such as garlic or onions not to transmit an unpleasant odour to our hands.
Furthermore, the use of ozonated water to clean toilets will disinfect and help keep the baths completely free of odours and perfectly sanitised.
3. Excellent way to conserve our natural environment
The combination of ozone and water has a bleaching effect which enhances the action of detergents. This will reduce significantly its consumption without affecting the results. But the most important thing is that washing clothes with ozonated water will save us money and it also contributes to the environment conservation because ozone neutralises the action of other chemical compounds such as bleach and chlorine.
4. It acts against dandruff
This kind of water can remove fungal infections of the scalp as dandruff without the added help of other supplements.
5. Facial cleansing and cosmetic results
Ozone mixed with water helps our skin pores oxygenate. In addition, it eliminates fat excess where this tends to accumulate and it prevents acne, pimples and seborrhoea, elements which cause social insecurities that many teenagers suffer with.
6. Hygiene and oral health
It prevents cavities because it removes the germs that appear in the mouth after eating food. Also, it treats small mouth sores and pyorrhoea. It is necessary to add that its use is excellent for the disinfection of toothbrushes and dentures while rinsing the mouth with ozonated water after brushing your teeth with a regular toothbrush, helping you get a greater whiteness and avoid halitosis.
7. It takes care of your skin
Ozonated water is great for your skin care because it helps control cellulite, excess oil, stretch marks that appear on the skin and even bruises, varicose veins and wrinkles. This product is also effective for skin blemishes and keloids.
8. Benefits in the intimate hygiene
It has an effective germicidal and deodorant power and is extremely favourable for using every day in the intimate feminine hygiene.
9. Babies will appreciate its use
If there are babies at home, ozonated water is recommended both for the care of their bodies and in the sterilisation of baby bottles or pacifiers. Young children tend to carry all kind of things to their mouths; to avoid the risk of infection ozonated water purified with ozone is perfect to disinfect those objects.
10. Good for stress
Nowadays, many people are under enormous stress and pressure, for example, when trying to make work-life compatible with family life. This liquid helps achieve a higher relaxation level while having a shower and it will decrease the stress of the day. It is also used to treat people with oxidative stress which causes premature ageing.
11. Useful for gastric problems
There is evidence that ozonated water has a beneficial effect on the gastric mucosa which is beneficial for the treatment of gastritis, gastroduodenal ulcers and some kind of digestive parasitosis.
12. Disinfect wounds
Thanks to the use of ozonized water in wounds, the healing process is accelerated while a successful deep-cleaning and disinfection are being developed without any sort of stinging while treatments with oxygenated water or alcohol are more unpleasant.
We must acknowledge the importance of practicing a good water hygiene and we should ensure we kill the bacteria and viruses that it may contain. As many studies have shown, water purified with ozone may be a good option to fulfil this objective that will provide benefits for our health and life quality.
The above lines are just looking to provide information about the risks of not having a good hygiene when it comes to the water we use and offering some alternatives, and as discussed the use of ozonated water is a great alternative.
