What is Kangen Water®?
Kangen Water® is simply medical grade alkaline water that is produced from one of Enagic's line of ionizers. The word Kangen is a Japanese word that means, "Return to Origin" and is referring to the process of turning our bodies back to more of an alkaline state much like the time when we were very young.
In a broad sense, Kangen Water® has the following three amazing properties:
All living and non-living matter battle with oxidation. Rusty nails are an example of oxidation at work and the same process causes aging and decay.
To get an idea of what oxidation and anti-oxidation looks like, take a look at the image above, showing two glass containers, one filled to the brim with Kangen Water® and the other with neutral tap water. In each container are a few iron construction nails. Both containers were filled back in June of 2008. You will notice that the glass container to the right is clouded with rust from the nails - this is oxidation at work and the results would be the same with any kind of regular water (bottled or otherwise).
The image to the left is filled with 9.5 pH Kangen Water® and the nails in this water are still preserved even to this day. As a result of the oxidating properties of water, the nails in the tap water will continue to deteriorate. If Kangen Water® can preserve nails, imagine what it can do for your body.
While we are on the topic of aging, check out the image to the right. This is a picture of Hironari Oshiro, the CEO of Enagic®, alongside his American Business Advisor. Although, the two men look years apart, typically mid 40's for Mr. Oshiro and late 60's for his American Advisor, they are in fact the same age. They were both 67 years old back in 2008.
We believe that the reason Mr. Oshiro looks so well is because he has been drinking Kangen Water for the better part of 20 years. In light of the fact that this water is an anti-******, it can be viewed that this water might possibly be the fountain of youth.
Oxidation in liquids can be measured in ORP which stands for Oxidation Reduction Potential. A +ORP value is unhealthy for you and helps accelerate the breakdown of cells and thus accelerates the aging process while a -ORP value is very good for your health and will actually slow down the aging process. Please remember that a (-) negative value in such circumstances is a beneficial indicator for your health – similar by analogy to the negative values being of benefit to someone playing golf.
Kangen Water: 10x's the Power of Orange Juice.
Below is a visual chart of ORP (notice the bottled waters and beverages with a positive + ORP value) - even the bottled water which we have been lead to believe is good for us is actually unhealthy for a number of reasons.
Kangen water is typically between -300 to -600. I have seen it personally as high as -800 ORP. The higher the negative (-) ORP, the better it is in combating oxidation and free radicals which affect our health and well being.
Bottled water has been measured as high as +600 ORP in our personal demonstrations. Notice Kangen Water® on the opposite side of the chart is even surpassing green tea and orange juice. If you haven't already done so, stop drinking sodas. Not only are they extremely oxidizing but also highly acidic which is a big contributing factor in sickness and weight gain.
Micro clustering is another great quality of Kangen Water®. When water is run over the solid platinum coated titanium plates, the water is broken down in size from a cluster of 15-20 molecules to around 5-6 molecules resulting in the body being hydrated up to 6 times as much as with regular water. Because of its smaller molecule clusters, this water will penetrate and hydrate all areas of the body more efficiently than regular water. Imagine a water that fully hydrates, oxygenates and detoxifies your body all at once.
The third major characteristic of this water is Alkaline. When we were born, our bodies were naturally alkaline; however, as we age, our bodies become more acidic for a number of reasons. Our bodies' pH level should be 7.35 for optimal health, which is slightly alkaline.
