How Does The Kangen Water Machine Convert Tap Water To Ionized Water?

The Kangen Water Machine transforms your ordinary tap water (which may be acidic, contaminated, or chlorinated) into a healthful alkaline drinking water.

Kangen Water Machines filter out the contaminants and harmful chemicals, like chlorine, from your tap water with an anti-bacterial charcoal system.

When the ordinary tap water is going through an ionization process, there is an ionic separation that takes place, and the result is that the water emerges from two different hoses.

The alkaline water, for drinking, comes through one hose, while acid water is sent through the other. These two types of water, then, represent opposites in their use and function in our lives.

Kangen Water
Origins In Japan

Research: There has been more research done in Japan on water than anywhere else. Over 30 years ago the Japanese were plagued with acid rain in their water. Scientists, engineers, and doctors convened to try to solve this problem. Techniques were developed which would provide more alkalinity to the drinking water. A machine was manufactured which would provide healthful, alkaline water.

Enagic, the Manufacturer: A 36 year old Japanese company, named Enagic, developed the technology for the Kangen Water Machines. They have provided over 100 Japanese hospitals and clinics, and over 3000 restaurants with industrial strength ionizers. Enagic is OEM, or an Original Equipment Manufacturer, meaning that they are involved in the research, development and distribution of the product. This provides for a higher level of control and quality.

First Home Units: It was in 1997 that Enagic introduced their first consumer unit, so that the same benefits, which had been previously been provided by industrial units in restaurants, hospitals and clinics, would be available in private homes.

And for only a few years, these machines have been available in the United States. The popularity has been amazing, as are the testimonies of those who have experienced the true power of the Kangen Water for a healthy lifestyle.

Awards, Recognition: Enagic has received many awards, including that of the Japanese Association of Preventative Medicine for Adult Diseases, a renowned medical association of over 6500 doctors.

Kangen Water has been a registered trademark of Enagic since 2005.

Kangen Water History And Science

Water technology, using electrolysis to create negative and positively charged ions, was originally invented by Russian scientists over 50 years ago.

Japanese Development: Japanese were the first to perfect this process and they started producing the first water ionizer machines in the 1980′s to be used for hospitals.

The Process: When water passes through electrical energy, it causes the hydrogen within it (H2O) to assume one of two forms. One is hydrogen (H+) that has a positive electrical charge. This water is ‘acidic’. The other form is hydrogen that bonds with an oxygen atom and becomes negatively charged (OH-) and is sometimes referred to as active hydrogen. And this alkaline water is the building block of life itself.


Acid and Alkaline
So when there are more H+ ions in the water than OH- ions, the water is acidic. When there are more OH- ions than H+ ions, it is healthful and delicious alkaline water.

Micro-clusters: Ionization changes conventional water from an irregular, bulky shape to a hexagonal shape that saturates the body tissue much more efficiently. It is sometimes referred to as micro-clustered water because of its small molecular grouping. These smaller six-sided clusters are much more hydrating and penetrating. They are, therefore, more capable of pushing out the toxins from the body.

High Negative ORP (Oxidation Reduction Potential)*: Kangen Water® also has a negative ORP level. Remember how apple slices turn brown when oxidation occurs? Similarly, you should stay away from substances with positive Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP), and choose foods and beverages that instead have negative ORP levels.

Kangen: Return To Origin

What does Kangen mean? The word Kangen is translated from the Japanese to mean “return to origin” and in the context of Kangen Water it can be interpreted to mean taking the body back to its original “alkaline” state.

Also it can be interpreted to refer to water at it’s original glacial source which is very alkaline due to the minerals in the water. Hexagonal water is only found in nature in the high mountains where it is formed by glacier ice or snow melt. This creates water that is a 6-sided, or hexagonal structure, and approximately 1/3 the size of most water.

The Enagic Kangen Water® Machines

Strong Kangen Water: Food preparation and cleaning

Kangen Water: for healthful drinking and cooking

Clean Water: for drinking

Acidic Water: for beauty

Strong Acidic Water: for disinfecting

Enagic offers five different models of ionizer machines, but the flagship model is the LeveLuk SD501 which is selected by approximately 95% of those who purchase a unit.

This model provides 5 different types of water for different uses. There is Strong Kangen Water for cleaning and food preparation, Kangen Water for healthful alkaline drinking and cooking, Neutral Water for drinking, Acidic Water for beauty, and Strong Acidic Water for disinfecting. Enagic has just introduced a new Platinum version of the SD501, a revamped modern design geared to match today’s contemporary kitchens.

Recently Enagic brought out the undercounter version of the LeveLuk. And another exciting recent addition is the much anticipated LeveLuk portable, because so many of those who drink Kangen Water have wanted to take the water with them for travel, to the work place or on the go.

Warning: Is Your Water Contaminated?

Tap Water: How clean, how safe and how healthful is the water you are drinking? Many are unaware of the dangers of the contaminants that are in most current municipal water sources. For example, only 91 contaminants are regulated by the Safe Drinking Water Act of 1974, yet more than 60,000 chemicals are used within the United States, according to Environmental Protection Agency estimates.

According to a recent New York Times study more than 62 million Americans have been exposed to drinking water that does not meet at least one commonly used government health guideline intended to help protect people from cancer or serious disease.

And according to recent investigations, the tap water in 42 states has been found to be contaminated with more than 140 unregulated chemicals that lack safety standards!

Bottled Waters:
As more people have become aware of these dangers, millions have turned to bottled waters in search of a safer source. Now bottled water has become a $15 billion dollar industry in America alone, creating a huge environmental problem with over 50 billion empty plastic bottles annually for our land fills to handle.

Most people are shocked when they learn that most bottled water is acidic and carries chemicals and pollutants that are leached from the plastic bottle itself. No laws require bottled water to be any better than tap water… and according to many surveys over 30% of all bottled waters are, in actuality, just expensive, acidic, reprocessed tap water.  See the results of pH and ORP tests for popular waters compared to Kangen Water.

Other waters– Reverse osmosis (RO) water, and distilled water:
These waters are considered dead waters because everything has been removed from them, including important minerals like calcium, magnesium and potassium.

This “dead water” does not eliminate free radicals. To the contrary, it increases the oxidation in the body rather than reducing it.

Weighing The Choices

When you review the options and choices for providing the body with the adequate amount and quality of water, then there are several things to consider.

First, our bodies are composed of about 70% water. Plus, water makes up 82% of your blood, 75% of your muscle, 25% of your bone, and 76% of your brain tissue!

It makes sense to provide the highest quality water for energy, alkalizing, hydrating, and detoxifying. Choose which water you want to supply energy to your brain and your body.

When you weigh the positive and negative factors of the choices for waters, the selection of a Kangen Water Machine, which converts your ordinary tap water into healthful, ionized water is the superior solution. It is a long term solution, with world-wide support, a full 5 year warranty, and a life expectation for the ionizer of 15 years or more. With a Kangen Water Machine, you can now drink to your health.
