Ozone For Your Health

Apparently the new wave in wine preservation has a name – and that name is ozone. Yup, the same stuff that keeps getting holes in it out there in the atmosphere could not only reduce the migraines and asthma some people experience from drinking wine but could actually super-charge wine’s antioxidant powers – like four times the antioxidant content of non-ozoned wines.

Researchers from the Technical University of Cartagena in Spain claim exposing grapes to ozone was 90% as effective as sulphur-dioxide in preventing decay and contained none of the side effects. So how to you say: win-win.
