Kangen Water is trademarked by Enagic International, a Japan based business that is the leading manufacturer of certified medical grade water ionizers in the world. They hold many prestigious certifications, including the Gold Standard for water quality.
These water systems produce hydrogen rich, Electrolyzed Reduced drinking water. Not only is Kangen water for drinking, but there are 68+ incredible uses for this water.
What does Electrolyzed Reduced Water do for our bodies?
1. Provides Increased Hydration.
Through ionization, the size of the water clusters (water molecules like to stick together) become reduced by 2/3 and are able to penetrate deeper into the cells, which also helps our body flush out toxins. This water is 6x more hydrating than your standard water!
2. Balances Body pH.
Kangen water raises the pH of tap water (after filtering chlorine, lead, and other sediments) through the manual process of ionization aka splitting the water molecule. The water helps our body buffer our acidic diets and environment, as well as return to homeostasis more efficiently.
**Note that this is not the recently trendy "Alkaline water" which has minerals physically added to the water, sits in plastic bottles for who knows how long, and can lead to build up of minerals and negative effects in our bodies- alkalized water is completely different.**
3. Increases Blood Oxygenation.
With the abundance of hydroxyl ions (OH-) that donate free electrons to unstable oxygen free radicals, results in stable oxygen molecules.
4. Neutralizes Free Radicals.
The extra electrons in Kangen Water neutralize harmful free radicals in our bodies! With the high negative ORP (Oxidation-Reduction Potential) it makes Kangen water a powerful, potent anti-oxidant.
Use on wounds, burns, cuts, infections.
Anti-Viral- Use for sore throats, strep throat, sinus infections, cough.
Helps relieve certain skin conditions
(helped so much with my psoriasis!)

Deep clean oven, greasy pans,
Replace toxic Drano and Goo gone
Hot Bath Soak (like epsom salt)
Release Melatonin with 1oz before bed
I came across this water when looking more in depth into what's in our water. Originally I thought I just needed a really good water filter because of the contaminants and toxins that are allowed in the water we drink. When I came across this machine it opened my eyes up even more to the toxins elsewhere in our environment and how I can protect myself and family from them. Things like toxic household cleaning products (I was cleaning with diy home cleaner but it always smelled like vinegar and didn't quite do the trick.) toxic medications and disinfectants, pesticides that coat this countries' produce- even organic produce can be possibly affected by run off, what's in the air, and germs left behind by it's handlers. I found this machine that will help me protect my family in so many aspects of our daily life AND aid our body in fighting off free radicals, cell degeneration, disease, and help us flush out toxins on a cellular level. It's incredible what this water will do for us and the machine will last 25-30 years.
Alkaline water is changed through a chemical process of ADDING a chemical substance such as Calcium and Magnesium. Kangen water is not "alkaline water."
The chemicals in alkaline water can build up in our blood stream and change our blood pH, and therefore be dangerous to our system.
Alkalized water (Kangen Water) is a structural change of the water through an electrical charge, this is called the disassociation of water. Alkalized water has no added chemicals, and does not build up in the system. When we consume the alkalized water it is able to easily neutralize in the stomach while still providing our body with the benefits of the negative ORP and active molecular hydrogen. Further explanation here.
This machine does filter chlorine, lead, some heavy metals, and sediments, but the main purpose of the machine is the added benefits from the ionization process. I suggest looking up your counties water through the EWG's Tap Water Database to see what is prevalent in your water to find out if you need a pre-filter for your drinking water to remove more contaminants such as fluoride (whether or not your'e using the Kangen machine.) You have to be careful with certain filters that remove good and bad- taking minerals our bodies need with them without replacing them.
