Ozone is sometimes used to inhibit the dental cavities from advancing. Ozone consists of three oxygen atoms, and it is a very efficient oxidizing agent. However, a high concentration of the gas is usually toxic to a living organism, and it is also said to be the principal cause of environmental pollution. A small dose of the gas is known to increase some antioxidants that are naturally occurring. These antioxidants are helpful because they help in fighting diseases such as cancer.

In case the immune system is over-reactive; the ozone will cool it down. This rare ability of ozone is as a result of its action on the membranes of the white blood cells that results in the production of cytokines, which are immune related messenger molecules. Ozone side effects is associated with neurofeedback and anxiety. Ozone also stimulates enzymes that enable the release of oxygen molecule from the hemoglobin. Ozone is known to boost the antioxidant protection in the body than other substances including vitamin C.
