Many people hear from concerned doctors, nutritional specialists, parents, family members and friends that they should drink lots of water every day. Many people know that the recommended daily water intake is at least eight cups of water per day, or even up to half of your body weight in ounces. However, they don’t necessarily know that they shouldn’t stop there.
Health Benefits of Drinking Water
If you’re wanting to feel and look healthier, you should definitely take it upon yourself to drink more than the recommended amount of water. Drinking plenty of water offers a ton of awesome health benefits, some of which may surprise you. The following are just a few of the amazing benefits of drinking water on a daily has to offer.
Water Can Speed Up the Metabolism
One of the most common benefits of drinking water is its ability to speed up the metabolism in cold form. A cold glass of water can kick-start a person’s calorie-burning process first thing in the morning. The body will start to burn calories at a quick rate because of its need to heat the water up to the body’s temperature. Along with speeding up the metabolism, water can hydrate the person and resolve problems such as fatigue and malaise. Anyone who asks, “What are the benefits of drinking water?” will be pleased to know that.
A healthy water intake can help a person who is suffering with constipation. It helps to add liquids to the stool for people who eat foods that are hard on the intestines. Drinking water can help to regulate bowel movements as well as softening the stool. The regulated bowel movements can keep the person happy and healthy.
The body builds up a supply of toxins on a daily basis. Getting into a regular habit of drinking water can stimulate the kidneys. The kidneys will then do the work of eliminating harmful toxins from the body. A person can tell if he or she is consuming the right amount of water by reviewing the urine color. The color of healthy urine is light in consistency. A person who drinks the correct amount of water may have a near-clear urine color.
Eliminate Bags From Under Your Eyes
Many people suffer from dark circles and bags under the eyes. The condition occurs in a number of people. One reason that people suffer from bags under the eyes is that they inherit it from their family members. Another reason that people suffer from eye bags is lack of sleep. A percentage of people suffer from bags under the eyes because of dehydration. Drinking the appropriate amount of water can resolve the eye bags.
Eases the Pain of Arthritis
Have or know someone suffering from arthritis pain? If so, increasing the intake of water can assist with this painful condition. The pain of arthritis can subside because of the water’s ability to moisturize the joints. A person who is suffering from arthritis should certainly look into Kangen water as a natural arthritis treatment.
Soothes Sickness and Loosens Phlegm
Water is an excellent remedy for a wide variety of illnesses. It can carry nutrients and oxygen to the cells. It can moisturize the air that goes into the lungs. Furthermore, water can loosen the phlegm that accumulates in the lungs. The person can then cough up the phlegm and have relief with his or her breathing. Many doctors recommend an increased intake of water when they come across people who fall ill with viruses. Antibiotics cannot help a person with a virus, so many specialists recommend increasing liquids.
Drinking water can increase one’s mental alertness all times of the day. Cold water can lift someone out of a period of fatigue and weariness. Even the mildest form of dehydration can deplete a person’s energy enough to require a liquid intervention. Water can be just what a person needs to make everything better. Water can even provide a person with a boost in a case of depression. One who is looking to increase alertness should certainly look into Kangen water.
Water Can Increase Dental Health
Another benefit of drinking water is that the person’s dental health can improve. Drinking water can stimulate the salivary glands so that a person continues to cleanse bacteria from the mouth. It can solve problems such as halitosis from dehydration, as well. Furthermore, drinking water can rinse away any items that get stuck in between the teeth. A person should drink a glass of water after every meal to increase the health inside of the oral cavity.
Water Helps to Absorb Nutrients
All of the benefits you’ve just read about are just the surface of a plethora of benefits provided when you start incorporating water into your everyday lifestyle. Get into the habit of drinking lots of fresh, fluoride free, purified water continuously throughout your day for the best results possible and experience more stamina, health, and overall happiness!
Water can increase the absorption of any nutrients that a person ingests. Vitamins, minerals, weight loss aids and the like can enter the system quickly for a person who drinks an appropriate amount of water. It can be an aid to a person who works out at the gym every day, as well.
Its official – microplastics have been found in tap and bottled water.
A recent video by CNBC analyzed 159 water samples, sourced from both tap water and bottled water in 14 countries, and found that over 80% of all samples contained tiny plastic particles, with an average of 4.34 plastic particles per liter of water. Even more surprising, 94% of water samples from the United States contained microplastics, which topped the list.
Researchers expected that undeveloped countries would have higher instances of plastics in drinking water than developed countries, since developed countries have more complex infrastructure – yet results indicated that it didn’t matter. Microplastics were in drinking water sources regardless of wastewater and debris infrastructure. Soon there will be more plastic in the ocean then fish.
“It gets worse. Plastic is all but indestructible, meaning plastic waste doesn’t biodegrade; rather, it only breaks down into smaller pieces of itself, even down to particles in nanometer scale — one-one thousandth of one-one thousandth of a millimeter. Studies show particles of that size can migrate through the intestinal wall and travel to the lymph nodes and other bodily organs.” – Chris Tyree & Dan Morrison, Authors of Invisibles: The plastic inside us
Do you think switching to bottled water is a better option? Absolutely NOT. The study also found microplastics in water samples from main bottled water companies (COKE and PEPSI) including Evian, Dasani, and Aquafina. The authors note “a man may consume as many as 14 plastic particles a day, while a woman could consume up to 10 plastic particles a day” from just drinking the recommended dose of water, not to mention the amount of plastics already being consumed from eating seafood, beer, and salt. Having a good pre-filter that takes out heavy metals and plastics, is key to protecting yourself from ingesting plastics.
Although we know microplastics enter the marine environment by escaping wastewater treatment facilities – researchers pose that microscopic plastic particles may also be entering water sources from the air. The simple fact that plastic bottles don’t break down for thousands of years, should really prevent you from ever drinking from a plastic bottle.
Main take away of the study – Americans over using and mass manufacturing of plastic have caused plastic particles to infiltrate our environment, food, drinking water, and now maybe even the air we breathe. Researchers stress that regardless of the environmental entry point, be it wastewater treatment facilities, atmospheric deposition, or beneficial reuse of sewage sludge for farm application – the ultimate source is human production and use of plastic.
Global plastic waste generated, discarded, incinerated, and recycled since 1960. Graph and data from R. Geyer, J. Jambeck, and K. Law. 2017. “Production, use, and fate of all plastics ever made”. As of 2015, only 9% of plastic produced was recycled, while 79% collected in landfills or the environment.
It will be important for future studies to test the potential health impacts of microplastics able to enter bodily organs like lymph nodes, the effectiveness of various filtration methods to capture microplastics, and the amount and source of airborne plastics. For instance, just last month a study found that plastic consumption may be causing brain damage and behavioral disorders in fish.
What if you had another option?
Kangen water founded in 1974 (48 years ago). Kangen means “return to origin” in Japanese. Kangen Water® is alkaline water produced by Enagic’s alkaline ionizer and water filtration machines. For more than 40 years, Kangen Water® has been used in Japan to help restore the body to its original, alkaline state. These machines can transform your ordinary tap water into healthy, fresh tasting alkaline drinking water. Kangen Water® is superior to tap and purified water.
By choosing to drink alkaline water, you aid your body in returning to a balanced state. Kangen Water is a fresh, clean and great tasting way to obtain optimal health!
Kangen Water does not remove many minerals that are lost in the process of purifying bottled water.
Kangen Water has a negative oxidation-reduction potential or ORP.
THE PROPERTIES OF KANGEN WATER
Water that is Hydrogen rich has a high concentration of Molecular Hydrogen (H2). Molecular Hydrogen acts as an efficient antioxidant that diffuses rapidly across cell membranes and can reduce free radicals, suppressing oxidative stress.
Through the process of electrolysis, your tap water becomes Hydrogen rich Kangen Water®.
Oxidation reactions in the body can produce free radicals, while antioxidants terminate these reactions. Elevated rates of oxidants and insufficient antioxidants in the body cause oxidative stress. A constant supply of external sources of antioxidants should be part of one‘s daily diet, to reduce oxidative stress and related damage. This is why everyone should not only care about the quantity of the water we drink, but also about the quality. Both are essential for our wellbeing.
As with most things in life, optimal health begins with balance. Our bodies must maintain a pH balance of 7.365, which is slightly alkaline. A pH scale is used to determine whether a substance is acidic or alkaline. On this scale 7.0 is neutral. Anything above 7 is considered alkaline and anything below 7 is considered acidic.
Hydrogen rich water is characterised by exhibiting a negative ORP. A high ORP value (in positive numbers), indicates that a substance has a higher oxidizing potential. In generalised terms, for humans a positive or high ORP is better for the outside of the body (cleaning and sanitizing). A low ORP value (in negative numbers) indicates that a substance has a higher antioxidizing potential, and is preferred for oral consumption. Just like pH, ORP values are an important measurement for determining the quality of water.
Please see “The Advantages of Electrolyzed Water” to find out how you can use the different water types produced by the Kangen Water machine in your household, saving you money on cleaning products and relieving the environment!
(upper) an H2 good guy attacking two OH bad guys and (lower) turning them into water! Isn’t that cool?Kangen SD-501 has been shown to have the highest H2 production capability of any device on the market! The research shows over 300 peer reviewed studies on how molecular hydrogen H2, helps the body in ways you would never imagine. Since hydrogen is the smallest atom of all, it gets deep into your body and cells where it does miraculous things including the basic neutralizing of the very radicals that destroy our bodies slowly over time. The photo above shows an H2 good guys attacking 2OH bad guys and turning them into water! Isn’t that cool? Or cut an apple and watch how it turns brown. The H2 has also been found to help produce other antioxidants like glutathione, and is involved in cell signaling which is huge in helping with some of the most severer conditions in human health. The PhD said the hydrogen is only active in the water for 30 minutes after making and that drinking 1 gallon of Kangen water fresh daily will give “therapeutic” levels of molecular hydrogen according to the studies. The K8 Mighty Antioxidizer. $55/mo The whole marketing world is jumping on board and over the next several years you will see all the pH water on the grocery store shelves changing to “Hydrogen Water.” There are already a number of products out. But the problem is, the hydrogen has a short life and you cannot put it in a bottle. By the way, the H2 is so small and penetrating that it will migrate right through plastic containers. This is why you must have your own machine and drink it fresh and carry it with for 1 day only in a glass bottle. So everything you see on the market in plastic and even in glass has no value. The charge will even dissipate in glass over a 1-2 day period. Remember the discussions on oxidation reduction potential (ORP)? How water must have a negative charge? Well as it turns out the negative charge (-ORP) of the water is directly proportional to the amount of molecular hydrogen H2 activity in the water in ppm (parts per million). Here is a footnote from one of the comparison tests: “At a low flow rate (5 mL/sec), with the saline solution, the SD501 was able to produce a supersaturated hydrogen gas solution (2.0 ppm) with extremely low redox potential; however, other times only half of that concentration was achieved.” The normal is 0.05 to 1.5ppm so 2ppm blows all the others away and its there when you need it! The Kangen unit will make water all the way down to -700 to 800 mV ORP and more. Why? Because Kangen uses the highest quality medical grade materials and the biggest and most powerful titanium platinum plates in the industry. Don’t let anyone tell you Kangen is old technology. Well it is old but its the best that will last and last, and like all natural organic food and substances, it is and will be highly sought after. The only problem is; do you understand? In order to become truly healthy, you must understand, believe and do. You must be able to know when others are incorrect in what they are saying. Even (and especially) doctors in many cases. Want more? Ask for the studies. The difference between Kangen and others is like the difference between Mercedes and Kia. I wouldn’t mind driving a Kia but I would not want to trust Kia with mine and my families health. Plus the Kangen machines have demonstrated the longest life of any units on the market with 15-20 year average life. And these are actual statistics, not marketing expected or projected numbers like others put out. Anyway you can have the “Mercedes” SD-501 for as little as $44/month to start. Or the “White Rolls Royce” K8 for just $55/mo. Ask me how. SD-501 Platinum $47/mo With the highest levels of H2, longest life, and not to mention the other types of the water the Kangen units make such as the 2.5 strong acidic and 11.5 strong alkaline waters the others can’t even make, isn’t it time you seriously considered Kangen (hydrogen) water this year, in time for Christmas? It may even qualify as a tax write off for 2016. Ask me how. You don’t need drugs and alcohol. Take a hit of H2 in a slow draw glass of Kangen water every morning, noon, and evening, to keep you high on life and hydrated like nothing else can. The standard in the industry SD-501 $44/mo PLEASE READ MORE AND ATTENTION KANGEN WATER OWNERS! You made a wise decision when you purchased your machine. I want to challenge you. This form of electrolyzed reduced water (ERW) will, in time, help to change the health of this nation which is in dire need. As hydration expert and water coach I have studied this water for years and it never fails to amaze me how perfect and complete the Kangen SD-501 and K8 units are, producing 7 types of water, you can sterilize with, cook with, clean with, beauty water and topical skin care use, good for pets and plants. Drinking water is only one, yet the most important by far.
These waters range from strong acidic pH 2.5 to strong alkaline pH 11.5. These are truly amazing machines made to last an average of 15-20 years and make by far the most powerful water of its kind on the market. We call it a “Little Japanese Hospital in a Box,” where Japanese hospitals and clinics around the world have used this form of water for over 40 years and Japan enjoys the #1 healthcare system in the world. One in five homes has this form of water in Japan (drinking to -700 mV ORP,* with enhanced cellular absorption).*ORP=oxidation reduction potential which measures the potential to reduce free radical damage in the human body and reduce aging.
Its also called hydrogen water, reduced water, or negative water in the Japanese studies and many studies around the world. Compare to the US at #39 on the list of healthcare systems (and dropping), where only one in 12,000 homes has this form of water, and where 50% males and 30% females will now get cancer in their life. We believe this is greatly due to the pure, yet highly oxidative (+250 mV ORP) and low absorption (only 15-20% cellular) water Americans typically drink. The 9.5 pH ERW, is so much more than mere alkaline water. This water has the ability to reverse the environment of the most deadly conditions in human health including cancers, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, and so much more.
The photo above shows why:*Hydrogen ions OH- antioxidant (-ORP)*Active Hydrogen H2 antioxidant (-ORP)*Non reactive Oxygen*Small water clusters that fit into cells (80% absorbed)*Minerals pH 9.5This all results in a higher pH and negative charge on the water which is the evidence that the water is antioxidant. Contrast this with regular purified water the rest of your family and friends currently drink. Even if they paid a lot of money and think it’s healthy, it’s just not:*Oxidative (+ORP)*Reactive free radical oxygen*Large water clusters (only 15-20% absorption into the cells)*Most with minerals removed due to purification (pH 4-6) highly acidic, but even the more costly pH 9.5 waters remain oxidative and low absorption.
Drinking any water from a container results in dehydration, advanced aging, the chronic issues noted above, and more, not to mention the toxic plastic most waters come in. So do me a favor, please reach out to the ones you love most and give them some water and maybe text them a link or ask them if I could contact them. We haven’t even talked about the strong acid water (skin ailments, non toxic sterilant) strong alkaline water (cleaning) and beauty water (replaces costly beauty toners) the SD-501 and K8 units also make.
What you have there is an incredible device; a little “Japanese Hospital in a box.” Please don’t take it for granted and please, this holiday season take the time to tell someone. It’s a matter of life!
We want to reduce the oxidation in our bodies. Reminder, our babies are born alkaline and as time passes, they become more and more acidic which eventually leads to oxidative stress. Check out all of the diseases caused by oxidative stress! So what do we do to reduce oxidative stress in our bodies? We try and eat fruits and veggies, or drink green tea. We know not to drink bottled water, soda, sugary drinks because they contribute to the oxidative stress. See, our cells are very important. They protect our immune system. As we consume acidic foods or drinks we weaken our cells and they become susceptible to free radicals. These free radicals attack the cells and this is the gateway for high levels of acidosis. If you don’t hydrate your cells properly with antioxidants, you are more likely to have different levels of acidosis. Below is an image that shows ORP. The potential for Oxidative stress to be reduced (AKA ORP) At the top of the list is Kangen water. You can learn more about that and how it can benefit your body in other blogs on www.mywaterworks.com.
Below is an article written that details Oxidation for those that want to know more about it, and how it can effect our health.
ORP stands for Oxidation-Reduction Potential. In some parts of the world, it is also known as Redox Potential. Sometimes, you’ll see the words “oxidation” and “reduction” spelled without the hyphen connecting them. We chose the hyphen because the two chemical reactions are really “joined at the hip” – one cannot occur without the other also occurring.
When chemists first used the term in the late 18th Century, the word “oxidation” meant, “to combine with oxygen.” Back then, it was a pretty radical concept. Until about 200 years ago, folks were really confused about the nature of matter. It took some pretty brave chemists to prove, for example, that fire did not involve the release of some unknown, mysterious substance, but rather occurred when oxygen combined rapidly with the stuff being burned.
We can see examples of oxidation all the time in our daily lives. They occur at different speeds. When we see a piece of iron rusting, or a slice of apple turning brown, we are looking at examples of relatively slow oxidation. When we look at a fire, we are witnessing an example of rapid oxidation. We now know that oxidation involves an exchange of electrons between two atoms. The atom that loses an electron in the process is said to be “oxidized.” The one that gains an electron is said to be “reduced.” In picking up that extra electron, it loses the electrical energy that makes it “hungry” for more electrons.
We also know that matter can be changed, but not destroyed. You can alter its structure, and can increase or decrease the amount of energy it contains – but you can’t eliminate the basic building blocks that make things what they are.
“Potential” is a word that refers to ability rather than action. We hear it all the time in sports. (“That rookie has a lot of potential – he hasn’t done anything yet, but we know that he has the ability to produce.)
Potential energy is energy that is stored and ready to be put to work. It’s not actually working, but we know that the energy is there if and when we need it. Another word for potential might be pressure.
Blow up a balloon, and there is air pressure inside. As long as we keep the end tightly closed, the pressure remains as potential energy. Release the end, and the air inside rushes out, changing from potential (possible) energy to kinetic (in motion) energy.
In electrical terms, potential energy is measured in volts. Actual energy (current flow) is measured in amps. When you put a voltmeter across the leads of a battery, the reading you get is the difference in electrical pressure – the potential – between the two poles. This pressure represents the excess electrons present at one pole of the battery (caused, incidentally, by a chemical reaction within the battery) ready to flow to the opposite pole.
When we use the term potential in describing ORP, we are actually talking about electrical potential or voltage. We are reading the very tiny voltage generated when a metal is placed in water in the presence of oxidizing and reducing agents. These voltages give us an indication of the [potential transfer of electrons].
The Relationship Between ORP and pH
ORP and pH are two different measurements, yet they are very closely related. Acidic solutions have a postitive OPR (greater than 0), while basic, or alkaline, solutions often have a negative ORP (less than 0). [Ionized] water has a high negative ORP and is therefore an antioxidant.
So when you say something is an “antioxidant”, what you’re saying is that it has a negative ORP. The more highly negative the ORP, the more powerful antioxidant value it has.
[NOTE: The Enagic® SD501 Unit can produce water that has an ORP of -800!]
The following is an excerpt from Benefits of Alkaline, Ionized Water by Dr. Hidemitsu Hayashi, MD, Director of the Water Institute of Japan
“Basically, reduction means the addition of an electron (e-), and its converse, oxidation, means the removal of an electron. The addition of an electron, reduction, stores energy in the reduced compound. The removal of an electron, oxidation, liberates energy from the oxidized compound. Whenever one substance is reduced, another is oxidized.
“To clarify these terms, consider any two molecules, A and B, for example. When molecules A and B come into contact, here is what happens: B grabs an electron from molecule A; molecule A has been oxidized because it has lost an electron; the net charge of B has been reduced because it has gained a negative electron (e-).
“In biological systems, removal or addition of an electron constitutes the most frequent mechanism of oxidation-reduction reactions. These oxidation-reduction reactions are frequently called redox reactions.”
Dr. Hayashi is a Heart Specialist and Director of the Water Institute of Japan.
Kangen water is very good, healthy ionized alkaline water, and Enagic’s sales force typically shares water with people (for a few weeks) they meet to promote it. They then give the option to them to purchase the life changing devices, or continue to drink the same water they once drank before. There are so many stories of Kangen reps sharing water with their friends, so much that they end up building those relationships when they buy a Kangen machine. The machines last 25+ years! It’s most definitely the right way to help people to achieve health benefits. Watch this video about hangovers vs. Kangen water! There’s not a smarter, more affordable way to get the same results. So what is Kangen up to? Enagic manufactures the Kangen water machine and sells it through independent sales representatives.
In NO way is this a multi-level marketing scheme! It’s pretty much a reverse pyramid scheme. The reason why is only 8 points get paid out per machine sale. The sponsor gets one less point every time their team reaches a new level. Only 8 points ever get paid per sale! Enagic® to does NOT allow it’s distributors making health claims for the company. Enagic is closely watched by the government to withstand no health claims. Kangen water simply allows your body to heal itself by changing the water you drink. Enagic® can be held responsible for the things that their salespeople say. The competition is different. They take little to no responsibility for anything they say, they don’t tell you their plates are mesh and inferior to Enagic® titanium plates that cover more surface area. PLUS, Enagic® units out beat the competition units. Check out the a demo for Kangen water which has a 5 year warranty! Other ionizer companies just can’t do that, so they rely on the false claims of marketing on google and everywhere people are searching for Kangen water.
Come and see for yourself! All the TV “News” reports that praise Kangen Water® are incredible. Many of the celebrities who they say drink Kangen water are thrilled to share they drink Kangen water. Major athletes don’t always share because the average person think a 1/4 pound hamburger is more than a 1/3 pounder.
If you search Kangen Water® on YouTube, you will find many pages of videos and testimonials that are from recognized television media sources. These videos are made by actual TV news stations. Here is one from Designing Spaces that is one of the newer ones! All of the testimonials you see in these Kangen “news” reports are real. Many news reports have praised Kangen Water®.
Kangen reps often say Bill Gates has multiple units for all of his homes. They offer up a photo of him when he purchased 46 machines at an Enagic event. This photo is a validation about Kangen water from Bill Gates.
Fact: There have been many positive TV news reports about Kangen Water®
Fact: Celebrities such as Steven Tyler, Tom Brady, and US Presidents and more, all have Kangen Water Machines. We don’t need to marketing dollar heavy companies to make claims at the top of your google search. Doctors love Kangen Water too!
Documentation Beats Conversation
Kangen Water® machine can make alkaline water with a pH of over 11. You need to use saline (salt and water) to make Kangen Water® that strong, Strong Kangen water 2.5pH is strong acidic water, used for killing 99% of harmful contaminants.
Fact: Strong 2.5 pHKangen Water® is for cleaning and sanitation.
Enagic® has one of the most powerful warranties in the industry
The Kangen machine is the most popular water ionizer on the market. You get a great warranty. You get a 5 year warranty and can send it back right before the 5 years to get it deep cleaned and they extend your warranty 3 years!!! Enagic®’s warranty period is one of the best warranties in the industry.
Fact: You can get competitor ionizers for about half of what you pay for Enagic®, and you get what you pay for, with infererior products.
We are so excited to open My Water Bar in Chester County! This is Laura Fleming’s second Woman Owned Business, following a wildly popular Kangen water store in Reading (Berks county) What once started in the kitchen of their home in Pottstown, PA has turned into multiple new stores serving the most healthiest water.
They have been working so hard to get open and know how excited you all are for them to open! Literally, at the mercy of counter tops and inspections! As soon as this happens, they will be blowing up Pottstown with the most amazing water in the world! Be sure to follow My Water Bar on Facebook to keep up to date with everything!
Did you know Kangen water hydrates you 70% better than bottled water?? This is because Kangen water is medical grade ionized water that is split into smaller molecules as a result of going thru Enagic’s Kangen water machines! Kangen water is the perfect alternative to plastic bottles (Plastic in general) The more you consume Kangen water, the more you’re contributing to a greener planet. So thank you for taking the time to make our precious earth a more safer place for us to be!
Every day, we are exposed to harmful free radicals in our environment which causes oxidative stress to our bodies. Examples of oxidation in nature include: a nail rusting, an apple turning brown, a plant decomposing, and even our skin wrinkling as we age.
In 1923, Dr Otto Heinrich Warburg discovered the cause of cancer. He found that cancer grows in oxygen-deprived acidic tissue and that when our body is in an alkaline state, disease and sickness cannot thrive in it.
Better Hydration and Drinkability
Kangen water is ionized into 4 – 6 molecules per cluster, allowing our bodies to better absorb the water and stay well hydrated while carrying out our daily activities.
Because of Kangen Water’s excellent hydration abilities, we can stay hydrated throughout the day without an “over bloated” feeling from drinking the recommended 8 glasses of water a day.
With better hydration and absorption abilities, ionized water enhances the ability of blood carrying oxygen to the rest of our body.
People report feeling “less tired” or fatigue after drinking Kangen ionized alkaline water on a daily basis.
Dehydration is one of the main factors of aging and wrinkles.
The enhanced hydration property of Kangen Ionized Water has been found to restore body moisture and improve various skin conditions.
Works to Restore Your Body to a More Alkaline State
Kangen water comes in 3 levels of alkalinity – pH 8.5, 9.0, 9.5.
Drinking alkaline water daily works to balance the pH of your body and restores your body to a more alkaline state, where disease and sickness cannot thrive in.
The antioxidant properties found in Kangen Ionized Water help to neutralize free radicals in our body.
With the enhanced permeability of micro-clustered water, toxins and waste products are flushed out of our body more effectively.
The Kangen Machine can remove chlorine from tap water. Ordinary tap water which has chlorine added to it gets absorbed into our fresh vegetables and fruits when we washed them as well as into our bodies as we take showers or bath. Short term there is no effect but imagine eating; drinking and bathing over many years the residue of chlorine in our blood stream. We are slowly poisoning ourselves!
Hope you’re blessed! Today we are covering the many ways we can use Kangen water. We mainly use the water for drinking, but imagine not needing any chemicals in your house ever again! We used to send this out to every new Kangen water machine owner, but felt this would be a way to let everyone who’s interested in getting a machine to have access to! Enjoy and feel free to reach out with any questions!
11.5 Water Strong Kangen
1. GOOD NIGHT SLEEP: Drink 1/2-1 ounce of 11.5 before bedtime to help release Melatonin for a great night sleep.
2. EYE WASH: Rinse eyes with an eye cup. Upon removing the eye cup from its packaging, soak in.Strong Acid Water (pH 2.5) for 1-2 minutes to clean.and disinfect. Rinse the eye cup thoroughly with Strong Alkaline Water (pH 11.5) Fill the cup, following package directions, with Strong Alkaline Water (pH 11.5) Place cup firmly around one eye, keeping your eye open, tilt your head back and gently roll your eye as though you were attempting to look up, down, and from side to side. Continue this for approximately 1 minute. Now that you have completed one eye, toss the water away. Rinse the eye cup thoroughly with Strong Acid Water (pH 2.5) Repeat steps for your other eye. To maintain healthy eyes follow this protocol 1-3 times per week. When working to improve any eye condition, follow this protocol at least 2 times daily and up to 10 times per day.
3. GREASE IN EYE: Spray 11.5 as needed to soothe and heal eye.
4. MAKE UP REMOVER: Spray on eyes to dissolve and remove make up.
5. PUFFY EYES: Spray on to eyes to reduce puffiness.
6. HOT BATH SOAK: Use one gallon of 11.5 added right at the end of filling the tub. This replaces Epsom Salts or any other remedy. This works even better if you have the Anespa from Enagic.
7. ALLERGIES, COLD SYMPTOMS, SNORING: Use as a nasal wash when sinuses are plugged. Due to the reduction in inflammation of nasal passages this technique can also reduce snoring!
8. BUG SPRAY REPELLENT, SUNBURN, PAIN, BUG BITES, SWELLING: Spray or soak areas with towel soaked in 11.5 and keep wet by adding small amounts of 11.5 to the towel for a minimum of 30 minutes twice a day…better if one hour twice daily.
9. HEAT BURN, INDIGESTION, FOOD POISONING, STOMACH FLU: Drink ¼ cup FRESH 11.5 immediately followed by 25 ounces of 9.5 then do not eat or drink anything for 45 minutes. Repeat the next day only if necessary.
10. ARTHRITIS, GOUT, MUSCLE SORENESS OR TISSUE INJURIES: Since high alkalinity draws out acids, you can utilize 11.5 to soak in to “pull out” acids associated with inflammation, injury and pain.
11. HANGOVERS & MIGRAINES: can prevent hang overs, as soon as feel migraine coming on, drink several oz.
12. CHEMOTHERAPY: Drink the water with chemotherapy. The benefits are that side effects are lessened, it reverses metabolic acidosis, and the antioxidants are good for any point on chemo. Put 11.5 on the skin twice a day for burns from chemo.
13. STROKE: Drink as much as able if feel a stroke coming on to provide potent alkalinity to overcome severe acidosis causing the stroke.
14. FRUITS & VEGGIES: Soak for a minimum of 5 minutes to clean off pesticides.

Getting Started Drinking Kangen™ Water:
It is recommended that everyone who chooses to drink Kangen™ water start by drinking the 8.5 pH water. The Kangen™ water is obtained by pushing the blue button on the front of the machine. Multiple pushes will move you through the three different levels of the Kangen™ water that are produced. This water is dispensed through the TOP flexible hose.
Drink at least ½ of your body weight in ounces each day. If you do physically demanding work, participate in strenuous athletics, or are dealing with “sickness issues”…you need to drink more Kangen™ water to help your body move towards and achieve homeostasis. In these situations, it is recommended that you drink at least ¾ of your body weight in ounces, and drinking 1 ounce per pound of body weight per day produces real “miracles”. It is my observation that those people who drink a minimum of ¾ of their body weight in ounces of Kangen™ water per day see the quickest results. After successfully drinking the suggested amount of 8.5 pH water for two weeks (“successfully” means that you are not experiencing any discomfort while drinking the water…other than frequency of urination), then you may choose to increase the water pH level up to the 9.0 pH setting. Continue drinking the suggested amount of water at this setting each day for at least two more weeks.
After successfully drinking the suggested amount of 9.0 pH water (again meaning that you are not experiencing any discomfort while drinking the water other than frequency of urination) then you may choose to increase the water pH level up to the 9.5 pH setting.
Occasionally we find people that experience “cleansing” symptoms. These are typically caused by the body releasing stored toxins and acidic wastes. If you experience any “cleansing” types of symptoms (such as headaches, skin eruptions, loose bowels, coughing, etc.) when you start on the 8.5 pH water, then you should increase the amount of water you are drinking to help neutralize and flush the toxins from your system. If you experience these symptoms after increasing the pH of the water you are consuming, then go back to the last pH setting that you were able to drink without experiencing these symptoms and increase the amount of water that you consume until these symptoms stop. If the reaction gets too severe, one should back off of the pH but INCREASE the volume of water ingested.

Kangen water benefits exist because alkaline water has real health benefits. I support Kangen by Enagic brand (see my article (what is Electrolyzed Reduced Water?). We do not support knockoffs that claim to be better than Enagic. They tend to go after the best, which is a clever way to get people to buy something that is inferior.
I can’t deny that drinking alkaline water has many benefits that can improve your overall health. The benefits of alkaline water are not just things like health maintenance, but there are cases where it may be able to help with on-going chronic illnesses too. Having a machine with mesh plates that claims to have more plates, is not the answer.
Many competitors claim they’re machines are better, but many use mesh plates, instead of titanium plates. They say “oh we have 13 (mesh) plates and the machines don’t even self clean”. Mold can grow in these machines. We have had people choose to go with a competitor, only to realize down the road that the water did not give them the same benefits as Kangen water!
Several studies have shown that alkaline water has a positive effect on the body. Here are the main Kangen water benefits because of the benefits of drinking alkaline water. Celebrities swear by Kangen water!
WHAT IS ALKALINE WATER?
The pH (potential hydrogen) of a substance is the measure of the concentration of hydrogen ions water contains. Alkaline, while touted to be healthy, many times has baking soda and salt added.
The pH scale varies from 0 to 14. This is based on the concentration of hydrogen ions in pure water that is neutral. A pH of 7. A pH below 7 is considered an acid and a pH greater than 7 is called alkaline.
The more hydrogen ions present, the more acidic the solution and the lower the pH.
On the other hand, a lower hydrogen concentration means that the water solution is more basic and therefore has a higher pH.
Now the term “alkaline” is used interchangeably with “basic”, even though they are not exactly the same.
Alkaline compounds are things (for example, salts, metals) that, when added to water, make it more basic.
Water always contains a certain amount of dissolved solids (for example, inorganic salts such as magnesium, calcium, sodium and potassium,) that affect the pH.
The higher the dissolved solids, the more alkaline the water. The pH of the tap water is close to 7. While the water with more alkaline compounds has a pH of 8 or 9.
The notion is that alkaline water is sometimes medicinal. This makes it suitable for optimal health seems to be based on the conviction that acidic properties in the body and in the blood are the cause of diseases and should be neutralized. If this is true then it makes sense to believe that a more alkaline body leads to better health.
KANGEN WATER BENEFITS?
While there is plenty of proven scientific research, many advocates of alkaline water believe in the following benefits of alkaline water:
Alkaline water has extremely moisturizing properties compared to normal water. This can be a beneficial beverage for people who exercise daily and need more water in their body.
Alkaline water contains many powerful antioxidants that can help prevent the growth of free radicals that damage cells in the body, which can accelerate the aging process.
Some people say that alkaline water contains several minerals, such as magnesium and calcium, which are important for maintaining healthy bones.
The benefits of alkaline water include increasing immunity. Your immune system can help neutralize the acidity in your body caused by stress, poor diet and environmental toxins.
One of the key benefits of alkaline water is that it can help neutralize the acidity in our body by reducing the excess acidity in the stomach and gastrointestinal tract.
KANGEN WATER REVIEW: THE PROBLEMS YOU MUST KNOW
I definitely recommend using Kangen as way to get your water. This is because the health investment is worth the price they sell them for and is essentially giving you the opportunity to share this water with others and sell them as individuals. This is not like the competitors who sell do manufacturer to consumer. With Enagic there is a lucrative compensation plan that promotes health, wellness and financial happiness. The reason Kangen water machines are more expensive is because it is a people to people network and you can be paid to share water and sell machines along with others who help as well. With competitors with cheaper machines, the manufacturers keep all of the profit.
It can’t at all be said that the Enagic model looks like a pyramid scheme. Enagic distributors sell the machines to people who want to enhance their health. If they choose to sell machines, they have that option. When the sell a machine up line receive part of the commission. They have a patented compensation plan.
It operates contrary to a pyramid scheme (more like a reverse pyramid scheme where only 8 points are paid) and this business model has worked to sell millions of machines in the USA.
This means that users of Kangen machines share water with other people and if they choose, they help them build their team.
The points end at 8 total ranging from $285-$340 per machines. The sharing never ends and only 8 people gets a thank you check from Enagic, which makes the product justifiably priced . Just like a car salesman, when a car is sold the salesman doesn’t get all of the money, everyone from the salesman to the manufacturer get paid.
Electrolyzed water is a special type of water created using an electrochemical process called Electrolyzed Reduced Water (aka ERW) ionization. Ionization uses an electric current (235 Watts) to split regular water into two groups – alkalized water and acidic water. Kangen ionized water has a wide range of advantages and applications.
KANGENIONIZED WATER EXPLAINED
There are two types of Kangen ionized water – Regular pH 8.5-9.5Ph Kangen ionized water and strong acidic ionized Kangen water. Regular Kangen ionized water is made using tap water.
Strong acidic 2.5pH ionized water is made by adding salt to the ionization process. Both of these categories produce acidic and alkaline ionized water.
The ionization of tap water creates alkaline ionized water. This alkalized water is used to drink and cook with. Alkaline Kangen ionized water is consumed as it is believed by many to have a range of health benefits.
STRONG IONIZED WATER
Strong ionized water is created by adding salt to the ionization process. This produces strong alkaline water and strong acidic water. This water is used for cleaning, disinfecting, and bleaching.
WHAT IS IONIZED WATER USED FOR?
There are many popular uses of ionized water. The most popular is the consumption of alkaline ionized water as many believe it can help boost health. The possible health benefits of alkaline ionized water include helping with obesity, reducing blood pressure, and detoxification. These health benefits are backed up by Google Scholar by searching ERW dataand you’ll see many studies that back up this water.
Ionized slightly acidic water is not for consumption. It is used to rinse hair and cleanse the skin. It is believed that the slightly acidic beauty water can help skin conditions such as acne. It is also used to water plants.
Strong acidic water is used for cleaning and disinfecting and should never be consumed. Salt is added to the water before electrolysis. Both the acidic and alkaline versions of strong acidic water are used for cleaning and disinfecting surfaces.
HOW IS IT MADE?
It’s made through an electrolysis process called ionization. This can be done at home using a Kangen water machine using tap or well water.
All you need to do is run the water through the Ionization machine and it takes care of the rest. These machines are not meant purify the water. They do have a filter that removes heavy metals and chlorine before you drink it. Often pre-filters like Multi-pure or Ion Faucet filters are used to filter the source water.
WHAT IS ELECTROLYZED REDUCED WATER?
Water ionization is the process of generating ionized water. During electrolysis, water is separated into hydrogen and oxygen molecules using an electric current.
This process creates two distinct groups of water. The water close to the anode is acidic and the water close to the cathode is alkaline. The two water types are then siphoned off and collected.
The formula for water is H2O. It is made of one hydrogen atom and two oxygen atoms. Water can also contain H+ and OH– ions. This happens when one of the hydrogen atoms splits from the H2O molecule.
The electrolyzed reduced process that occurs during water ionization is described below.
If the number of H+ ions is greater than the number of OH- ions the water is acidic. And if the number of OH- is greater than the number of H+ then the water is alkaline.
THE PH SCALE
The pH scale is used to show if water is acidic or alkaline. The scale runs from 0 to 14. If the water is neutral, like regular drinking water, it has a pH of 7.
Alkaline water has a higher number, usually between a pH of 8.5-9.5. Acidic water has a lower pH number typically 2.5pH-6pH. Learn more about Kangen water – see here.
DOES IONIZED WATER REALLY WORK?
The benefits of Enagic’s Kangen water have been enjoyed around the world for a long time and it has seen a recent surge in popularity. The main attraction of Kangen water is its health. These include restoring the pH balance of the body, boosting levels of energy, and increased hydrating effect.
Alas, since 2002 Enagic has grown in popularity due to the distributors sharing water with people all over the world. While no claims have been made due to the FTC, Enagic water sells itself, testimonials are told in person for people to realize the .
Natural ionized water is water that’s ionized in nature without human intervention. This happens when water passes through rocks and picks up mineral particles.
1. Lourdes, France
In 1858, a poor 14-year-old French girl repeatedly saw a ghostly woman who claimed to be the Virgin Mary that revealed the location of a spring and told her she wanted a chapel built on the site and for people to come in procession.
Now, an average of five million visitors flock to the town to drink or bathe in the spring water each year, and have reported healing of ailments like tumors, tuberculosis, ophthalmitis, impetigo, bronchitis and paralysis.
2. Tlacote, Mexico
Since May 1991, over 8 million people have visited the ranch of Mr. Jesus Chahin, who gives the miracle water on his property away for free. The water is said to have cured everything from cancer to obesity and high cholesterol, allegedly including former NBA star Magic Johnson’s AIDS.
3. Nordenau, Germany
A spring of very pure water was discovered in a cave in a disused slate mine at Nordenau. An old woman reported that after covering her blind eye with the water, she can now see; an ex-miner said his back was healed and he has thrown away his crutch, and another woman said, “I always had problems with high blood pressure and was afraid of collapsing. I went to the grotto with my blood pressure at 160/100. I came out with 130/100. Now the blood pressure is constant, a fact which my doctor cannot explain.”
4. Nadana, India
In Nadana village, water began gushing out of a deserted tube well in September 1992. Locals who bathed in the water reported that the “medicinal” and “magical” qualities of the well cured their skin diseases. Word quickly spread, and now a constant stream of people visit the village daily to gain the benefits of the water. A five-year-old polio victim was reportedly cured to a large extent after bathing there, and most people who go into the water report physical improvements.
These minerals increase the alkaline level of the water, creating naturally ionized water. Ionized water that is produced at home using an ionization machine is referred to as Kangen machine.
Ionized water is great for cleaning and disinfecting surfaces. 2.5ph water kills 99.9% of bacteria. For cleaning, you need to use ‘strong ionized’ water.
Strong ionized water should only be used for cleaning and sterilizing and should never be consumed. Strong acidic water with a pH of approximately 2.7 can be used for cleaning kitchen utensils, countertops, and to prevent cross-contamination.
It is a great choice for cleaning knives and chopping boards that can see an accumulation of bacteria. And it is a popular choice in commercial environments such as – restaurants, nursing homes, and salons.
Where to Buy Your very own Kangen Machine
You can make Kangen ionized water at home by investing in a water ionizer machine. A small investment upfront means you can save a lot of money down the road and make your own ionized water at home.

Are you searching for the ultimate hangover cure, which will help your body to recover after a long night out on the town? While you may not have considered using Kangen water to restore your system after consuming too much alcohol, it may be just the answer you’ve been looking for. Why?
Kangen water delivers the hydration your body needs, in order to restore proper homeostasis. Yet, the benefits of Kangen water don’t stop there, as it also helps to remove acidic waste in your system. Third, Kangen water acts as an antioxidant – which can only help your body to feel better more quickly. Finally, Kangen water boosts the oxygenation potential of your blood, which could also make it easier to bounce back after a night of excessive drinking.
The Ultimate Hangover Cure: Hydration
Using Kangen water to get rid of your pounding headache and other symptoms associated with a hangover, starts with the hydration it delivers. Drinking alcohol adds a huge burden of toxins to your body, and your liver and kidneys must work overtime to remove these from your system. This should come as no surprise, as even the word “intoxication” stems from the Latin word that means “to poison”. Drinking plenty of Kangen water helps to flush out these toxins (literally poisons), and makes it easier for your cleansing organs to do their job.
The Ultimate Hangover Cure: Remove Acidic Waste.
While drinking plain tap water or any type of bottled water does help the detoxification process along through hydration, the water itself does nothing to neutralize the toxins. This is a key distinction to make, as Kangen water can actually help to neutralize built-up acidic waste. How?
Kangen water is high on the pH scale (basic), and chemistry teaches that a base of sufficient strength and concentration can neutralize an acid. For this reason, not only will Kangen water provide hydration, at the same time its pH properties can make it a strong detoxifying agent in its own right. The upshot is that you may start feeling better more quickly, as your body rids itself of its toxins more effectively.
The Ultimate Hangover Cure: Antioxidant Effect
A third way that Kangen water can combat your hangover, is by providing an antioxidant effect. Only Kangen ionized water has this benefit, since it forms high pH water through ionization (also called electrolysis). Why does this matter? There are other ways to create alkaline water (like adding chemicals like baking soda), but ionization is the only method that produces Kangen water with extra electrons to donate.
Though this may not sound important, it means that this electrolyzed water can neutralize active oxygen molecules in your body. Since these oxygen molecules are oxidizing – a process which is extremely hard on cells and can even cause cell death – the antioxidant impact of Kangen water is very beneficial when trying to kick your hangover to the curb.
The Ultimate Hangover Cure: Possibly Improve Oxygenation
While you don’t want rogue active oxygen molecules running rampant in your body, your system requires oxygen in order to live and function. This is the purpose of hemoglobin, which binds with oxygen in order to transport it within your bloodstream to wherever it is needed. While research is needed to prove this effect, there have been anecdotal reports of using Kangen water to improve the oxygenation ability of the body. This is thought to work by reducing the acid waste within the hemoglobin, making them more able to carry life-giving oxygen.
