I am feeling great but still uncertain to long-term use..
"Ozone causes an increase in the red blood cell glycolysis rate. This leads to the stimulation of 2,3-diphosphoglycerate (2,3-DPG) which leads to an increase in the amount of oxygen released to the tissues. There is a stimulation of the production of the enzymes which act as free radical scavengers and cell wall protectors: glutathione peroxidase, catalase, and superoxide dismutase. Ozone activates the Krebs cycle by enhancing oxidative carboxylation of pyruvate, stimulating production of ATP. Ozone also causes a significant reduction in NADH and helps to oxidize cyochrome C. Prostacyline, a vasodilator, is also induced by ozone." From Falconblanco.com
What all this tells me is that the core energy mecahnism of our cells, the ATP production, is greatly enhanced by the intake of extra oxygen (in form of o3). This explains why I feel so great, youthful and full of energy when I drink about 750 ml of ozonated water (5 mins - drink immediately after).
If we go visit the Himalayas (high altitude) we will feel sick, nauseous and fatigued.. But the people living there regularly don't, they have adjusted to less o2 in the air. And if they come down they also feel a boost of energy. But also the most long-lived people in all the worlds regions, the tibetans, the Hunza people around Pakistan, the Andinian people, etc., etc., are known to be most long lived.
Not strange at all since less oxygen means less oxygenation of the whole system and lower metabolic speed.
So in a way I think of it as you take out more energy in advance than you should need. The rate ATP conversion increases..
But on the other hand: this is exactly what happens if you run 2-3 miles. You will feel very good this day and day after due to massive intake of o2 due to higher respiratory rate when running.. And exercising aerobically is considered very healthy.. So I am really divided.
I can only say: I feel great on O3-water but I also know higher combustion rate in cells might not mean longer life. I would really like someone to convince me otherwise.. Or is it a "safe limit" one can drink without risking over oxidation of cells and tissues? Or maybe only the sick cells are affected and a little oxygen to healthy cells are only healthy.
And the pathogenes and bad guys will be oxidized and thus it is a good thing. Can someone point to a more long-term research? Is it available yet?
