A research report on a study conducted in China indicates that ozonated water functions to stimulate “immune activation and immune regulation” as well as other healing mechanisms. In addition, with oral mucositis induced by chemotherapy, ozonated water reduced the pain as it had an analgesic effect.
This study had one group of hospital patients suffering with mouth ulcers, as a result of Behcet’s disease, gargle with ozonated water while the control group gargled with a different solution. The medical researchers reported that the group gargling with ozonated water “had significant improvement in healing oral ulcers and relieving the pain.”
