What is Kangen water?
Kangen water comes from a medical-grade in-home ionizer that produces 7 different levels of custom pH, electronically reduced, hydrogen-rich water. What does that mean? In simple terms, Kangen water makes us feel good because it hydrates our bodies on a cellular level. Hydrogen is shown to benefit nearly every organ of the human body, effectively mitigating oxidative stress and inflammation.
75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated. Kangen water is hydrogen rich. Hydrogen is the smallest molecule in the universe, making it easy & efficient for the water molecules to bring oxygen into and carry waste out of our cells.
The Kangen Water machine adds molecular hydrogen to water, thus making it a potent antioxidant. This is great for your health and also for your skin – since antioxidants help battle the free radicals that cause skin to lose firmness and elasticity. The more free radicals we neutralize, the more toxins we can effectively flush from our system. Two glasses of Kangen water is the anti-oxidizing equivalent to eating 5 pounds of blueberries!
The K8 (Kangen 8 machine) water ionizer generates 7 different types of water to meet all your needs. The machine can replace many household products, thus reducing your single-use plastic consumption as well. Click here for a full list of the 68 uses of Kangen water.
Start from the Beginning
Enagic is a Japan-based company that internationally distributes hundreds of thousands of Kangen Water machines to homes all over the globe. Enagic began their business 46 years ago. They have offices in 28 different countries. It is the only water ionizer company to receive a GOLD seal award.
Enagic International is certified to ISO 9001, ISO 14001, and ISO 13485 for quality control and environmental management, the Water Quality Association Gold Seal for product certification, and a member in good standing of the prestigious Direct Selling Association.
Our bodies are about 65% water. We have been trained to try all different types of diets, workouts, medications, yet many people fail to question their water source when thinking about health. Change you water, change your life!
How Does It Work?
Through the process of electrolysis, the Kangen Machine transforms low vitality, oxidizing tap water, into high vitality, living water. Electrolysis is the process by which a chemical change (decomposition) is brought about by passing an electrical current through a solution of electrolytes so that the electrolytes ion's move toward the negative and positive electrodes and react with them. The water is split into OH- (hydroxide ions) and H+ (hydrogen ions). The hydrogen ions react with electrons given by the cathode (– charged electrode), forming H2, molecular Hydrogen.

To put things into perspective, Kangen Water is up to four times more powerful than green tea, or blueberries.
Inside all models of the Kangen Machine, sit medical grade, platinum dipped titanium plates. The machine sits on your counter top close to your sink/tap, and plugs into your electric supply. The internal filter removes sediment, chlorine, lead, rust, bacteria, and odors. The machine works on a pH range of 0-14, whereby as the water passes over the plates and becomes electrolysed, it is split into alkaline and acidic. The alkaline water comes out from the main tap (the pH of this water is determined by the setting YOU select), and the acidic water exits the machine via a second tap/pipe which can either drain away down your sink, or can save this water to clean and disinfect your home with! (pretty awesome, right!?)
The 7 Different Levels
The machine produces 3 different levels of drinking water - 8.0, 8.5, and 9.5ph which hydrates the body on a deeper cellular level.
7.0pH Neutral water is safe for infants, children and anyone taking time-sensitive or time-release medication. Although this water is not high pH, it still contains powerful anti-oxidant properties and active molecular hydrogen, which is awesome.
The 6.0 pH beauty water is the level of water with pH most similar to the pH of our skin. This makes the water easily absorbed by our pores, rather than repelled by them and acts as a powerful toner/moisturizer for our largest organ, the skin. The 6.0 pH is almost the closest pH to rain water in nature, so household plants, gardens and crops benefit tremendously from being fed 6.0 pH beauty water.
The 11.0-11.5pH water is a powerful anti-inflammatory water due its to high pH. This water can be ingested in small amounts, or used as a soak to relieve pain from any joint or muscle inflammation/swelling. The 11.5 is also able to emulsify oils, which means it is highly effective at removing oil-based pesticides, herbicides and insecticides off of our organic and non-organic fruits and veggies. (That's right, even organic veggies can still have pesticides on them from transport!)
The 2.5 strong acidic pH Kangen water has a low pH and acts as a disinfectant that is safe to use for our bodies/skin/home. The water has been used in the medical and food industry for years to sanitize and disinfect due to its high negative oxidation reduction potential (ORP), which has been shown to reduce bacteria cells in fruits, vegetables and our skin.
What comes off your fruit/veggies?
Did you know that even organic produce will often have pesticides on the outer skin for transportation? These pesticides will not wash off with normal water. See what comes off when soaking fruits/veggies in 11.5 Strong Kangen water.
