What is Kangen Water®? And what is ionized water? There are a lot of terms floating around these days about water. We’ve put together a glossary of terms to help explain them, but we want to describe in a bit more detail exactly what makes our product different.
Kangen Water® is delicious water created from Enagic’s innovative water technology. In Japanese, kangen means “Return to the origin” and it describes water as it was meant to be–before the earth became polluted. Nature has produced “miracle waters” in several places around the world, and these areas tend to produce long and healthy lives for peoples native to the areas. The secret to these waters is that they are clean, alkaline, micro-clustered, antioxidant waters.
Kangen Water® has three main properties that distinguish it from regular water:
Oxidation is what you see on a rusty pipe or when an apple is cut and it begins to turn brown. In our bodies, the same type of damage occurs from the presence of atoms (or groups of atoms) called free-radicals. Antioxidants are molecules that can slow down or stop this damage. Substances like vitamins C and E, beta carotene and selenium are well known antioxidants.
Kangen Water® contains large quantities of negatively charged ions that act as antioxidants in the body.
In its naturally healthy state, the human body is slightly alkaline. Most of the beverages we consume today are acidic (like soda and bottled water). Restoring your body’s alkalinity can detoxify it and help prevent acidosis, one of the main causes of disease.
Regular tap water and bottled water is made of a 15-26 molecule cluster. Kangen Water® is made up of micro-clusters, much smaller 5-6 molecule clusters. This smaller size allows for better hydration because it’s more readily absorbed by the body. It’s also why Kangen Water® tastes so good.
Kangen Water® is rich in minerals, purged of impurities and ionized through electrolysis to obtain hydrogen and abundant electrons. These electrons impart strong antioxidant properties that strengthen the body’s immune system. Kangen Water® balances your body’s pH with alkaline-rich minerals, provides powerful antioxidant potential and maximizes hydration. All of which helps keep your body healthy!
