Ozone is used for the disinfection of water, which is its only purchase. It kills all bacteria and viruses found in water, although viruses are rarely found in water. Ozone does not improve the quality of the water it does not make it healthier, but only removes harmful bacteria.
Ionizing water transforms it into a powerful antioxidant that also alkalizes the body and hydrates it better than any other water. Water ionizers have a one-micron pre-filter that is capable of removing most bacteria and viruses. The ionization process also kills bacteria and viruses when the water runs over the electrodes, which essentially electrocutes them. Ozonating the water does not provide any of these health benefits. Ionized water contains an abundance of electrons that are free radical scavengers. It also has a negative charge, ORP, that reduces the oxidation of the body, one of the most important things we can do for our health. Ozonated water is not an antioxidant and does not reduce the oxidation of the body.
