Kangen Water™ is the delicious, and very healthy water created by Enagic’s progressive water technology. Not only do these amazing devices filter harmful chemicals out of tap water, but through the process of ionization they produce Kangen and acidic type waters. These waters can be used for various purposes which include drinking, cooking, beauty, and cleaning.
Therapy using both alkaline and acidic water for both external and internal use has been recognized as a valid medical treatment in Japan since the 1960s and it is practiced in many of Japan's leading hospitals.
Patients who experienced the benefits of ionized water in the hospitals asked how they could continue their safe, healthy, beneficial water treatment at home. They were told they could not. Enagic recognized a potential large market where both the company and its customers could benefit greatly, so they researched the ability to make a consumer unit to produce Kangen Water™ in the home. They succeeded beyond their expectations and were able to develop machines that could be sold to consumers for the same cost as many other home water filtration systems, while still providing the same benefits as the larger hospital units.
Kangen Water™ is pure, healthy, alkaline drinking water which is rich in minerals, purged of impurities, and ionized through electrolysis to obtain active hydrogen which is abundant in "extra" electrons. These extra electrons impart strong anti-oxidant properties to the drinking water.
Electrolysis is the process that separates water into alkaline and acidic water. The desired pH level of the resulting water can be selected by the operator of the machine.
The pH of the alkaline and acidic water will always add up to 14. Therefore, if ideal drinking water of pH 9.5 is selected, medium acidic water of pH 4.5 (used mainly for skin care) will also be produced. If strong acidic water of pH 2.5 (a very strong disinfectant with many important uses) is selected, strong Kangen water of pH 11.5 (a powerful solvent and de-greaser used mainly for cleaning) will also be produced.
The uses and benefits of these 4 types of water is the subject of the videos which you can watch on this website.
Neutral water of pH 7 (filtered for purity, but not ionized) can also be produced, but its only important use is for taking prescription medication and it is not a subject of the videos.
