Alkaline Kangen Water?
Many people use the terms “Alkaline Water” and “Kangen Water®”interchangeably, much the same way people refer to generic “facial tissue” as “Kleenex”. What is “Kangen Water”? Is there really an important difference between generic “Alkaline Water” and “Kangen Water”? You will discover that there are distinguishing differences.
While it is true that “Kangen Water®” is delicious tasting, pure, healthful alkaline water, it is much more than that. The word “Kangen” in Japanese means “return to origin” and “Kangen Water®” is actually the registered trademark of a 42-year old Japanese company called Enagic Corporation, a pioneer and leader in Japanese water technology.
Enagic has been manufacturing premium water ionizers (often referred to as Kangen Water Machines) for many years in Japan. It's products were only introduced to the American home market in 2003. Now Enagic has offices in Canada, Mexico, Europe, Australia, HK, Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines, South Korea,
The pH of Water
Kangen Water® Ionizers convert the tap water coming from your faucet into two water outlets.
One outlet has a large number of H+ ions while the other outlet has a large number of OH- ions. The water that is strong in H+ is Acidic while the OH- water is Alkaline. Several types of ionized water can be created by a high quality water ioniser.
Kangen Water Machines, for example, not only make 3 different range of Alkaline drinking Water
(pH 8.5, 9.0 and 9.5), but these machines also make four other types of water. namely:
(1) Strong Acid
(4) Strong Kangen.
These four additional different types of water, with pH ranging from 2.5 pH to 11.5 pH, can be used for various purposes which include disinfecting, cooking, food preparation, hair and face wash,,
skin toning, and cleaning….
all achieved with no harmful chemicals.
What is ORP
Kangen Water® is produced with strong negative Oxidative Reduction Potential (ORP), which can
be measured and shown. The more negative
the ORP value (measured in milliVolts), the
better the water is in reducing oxidation.
Because oxidation is the cause of the aging process, water with a strong negative ORP is considered better for good health.
Did you know that almost all types of drinking water regularly found in homes, stores and restaurants, including expensive bottled water, have a positive ORP in the range
of +200 mV to +300mV, or higher mV?
This indicates that most drinking water is contributing to oxidation and ageing.
Kangen Water®, on the other hand, is charged with concentrated numbers of OH- ions.
Kangen Water Machines produces water
rated up to negative -800 ORP.
(see comparison tests for pH and ORP for popular waters and beverages and Kangen Water.)
Product Comparisons in the Marketplace
It is vitally important to realize that not all water ionizers are the same.
They vary widely in design, capability, flow rate, pH, ORP results, service and warranty. For example, the Enagic LeveLuk SD501 uses 7 solid medical grade, platinum coated titanium electrolysis plates with 490 sq. in. surface area (which is over 4 times greater than the competitors) and use a 230 watts power supply (most competitors only use 80 watts) in order to provide enough power to perform a sufficient quantity of electrolysis at a reasonable flow rate.
Large Kangen Machine plates are found in Enagic's compared to smaller plates in competitor's units. Ionization quality is a function of how much electricity comes in contact with the amount of water, so these numbers are especially revealing. The Enagic LeveLuk SD501 produces “Kangen Water®” with a consistently strong negative ORP measurement.
Don’t be misinformed by the cheaper assembly line “knock-offs” who say that their water ionizers make “Kangen Water®”. Your health and that of your family is at stake. Remember, all water ionizers are not the same just like all automobiles are not the same. There are Yugos and there are Rolls Royces. Kangen Water Machines are, truly, the Rolls Royce of Water Ionizers.
The Enagic LeveLuk SD501 also comes with a 5-year FULL Warranty but it is built to last for 15 years.
To summarize, “Kangen Water®” is the registered trademark for water processed and ionized with Kangen Water Machines manufactured in Japan by the Enagic Corporation.
So don’t be misled that all “Alkalized Water” is “Kangen Water®”. “Kangen Water®” represents the Enagic technology and manufacturing capability, as well as the global support service that has allowed Enagic to sell well over a million Kangen Water Machines in Japan and N America.
