Change Your Water, Change Your Life
What is Kangen Water?
Kangen Water is structured water that is created from a company in Japan, Enagic’s, innovative water technology. Not only does this water technology filter your tap water (getting rid of many of the contaminants while keeping the naturally-occurring minerals), they also produce ionized, alkalized and strong acidic waters through an electrolysis process which creates water that is essentially ‘living’ and so full of anti-oxidant properties!!
But wait what??? Water that contains anti-oxidants??
Yep, you heard that right. in fact, this electrolysis process I just talked about leaves us with what’s called ERW, or Electrolyzed-Reduced-Water. This water can be used for various purposes, including drinking, cooking, beauty and cleaning. But the most amazing thing (to me, at least) is that scientists in Japan have found that ERW significantly reduced cell death caused by oxidation and the molecular hydrogen produced by the Kangen water machines provide neuroprotection of the cells!!
Pretty cool, right??
If you’d like a quick educational video about many of the amazing benefits, please watch the one below.
If you’d like to try some yourself, we do offer water shares OR if you’d like to learn how to purchase one of these amazing machines, reach out to me!
NOT ALL WATER IS CREATED EQUAL
Here are some problems with drinking the most commonly used waters…
Tap water is a healthier option than a soft drink. Sure. But according to the Environmental Working Group, there have been 278 pollutants found in America’s tap water since 2004.. and over half of these pollutants are completely unregulated!! This means that, unfortunately, these pollutants can legally exist in any amount!! But legal doesn’t always mean safe. Pretty scary, right??
At the current level of contamination, the public is starting to question the quality of tap water and many wonder if it is even safe enough to drink at all. Based on this alone, it is no wonder that the demand for Kangen water is constantly increasing.
Bottled water is not necessarily any healthier than tap water but is sometimes associated in such a way. And not only has it never been guaranteed or proven to be any better (often the only difference is added synthetic minerals), it costs a lot more and is creating some pretty detrimental environmental impacts!
A 4 year study by the Natural Resources Defense Council shows that 1/3 of the bottle water tested contained levels of contamination which exceed the allowable limits!! Again.. pretty scary, right??
Bottled water can also be slightly acidic, which may affect your body’s PH balance.
Reverse Osmosis water
Reverse osmosis is a filtering process that may be effective in areas that do not receive municipally treated water and is commonly used in bottled water facilities. The problem with this process is that reverse osmosis removes healthy, naturally-occurring minerals in the water. These minerals not only provide good taste, they also serve a vital function in the body’s system. When stripped of these minerals, water can actually become UNhealthy. Adding minerals back into this type of water was once thought to be a solution but we now know that the synthetic minerals being added back in can cause health concerns of it’s own.. like building up in our system! Also, 2-3 gallons of water are wasted for every gallon of reverse osmosis water produced!
Finally, the environmental impact caused by the production and disposal of single-use plastic bottles is harmful to our entire ecosystem, Kangen machines produce seven different waters ranging from pH 2.5-11.5. Each water has different properties with a multitude of uses that allows us to minimize consumption and waste as well as eliminate toxins from our homes and bodies. From cleaning to beauty care, plants, and pet care, Kangen water machines are an easy way to create a chemical and toxin-free home.

ALKALINE VS. ALKALIZED
Alkaline-rich water helps balance the body’s pH, which tends to be acidic because of our high acid diet, stress, and exposure to environmental toxins such as smog. Disease such as cancer can not live in a body that is alkaline, by balancing your pH, you are not only hydrating and healing your body but you are removing the environment for unwanted disease to thrive.
You might be thinking “why would I buy a machine when I can just run to the grocery store down the road and get a bottle of alkaline water?” Alkaline water is chemically changed the water. To increase alkalinity there is added calcium/magnesium/etc. There is very little to no proven benefits of Alkaline water.
Alkalized Water has gone through an ELECTRICAL change, through the process of electrolysis. This process is called the DISASSOCIATION of water. This produces alkaline ionized water from the natural chemistry of water, without having to add additional chemicals or synthetic compounds.
The body is under constant attack from oxidative stress. Oxygen in the body splits into single atoms with unpaired electrons. Electrons like to be in pairs, so these atoms, called free radicals, scavenge the body to seek out other electrons so they can become a pair.
The damage to cells caused by free radicals, especially the damage to DNA, may play a role in the development of cancer, heart disease, and diabetes.
This causes damage to cells, proteins, and DNA. Our body also naturally produces antioxidants naturally. However, in most cases, free radicals far outnumber the naturally occurring antioxidants due to our current environment. Antioxidants benefit the body by neutralizing and removing the free radicals from the bloodstream!
THE WATER CLUSTERS
The human body is comprised of up to 70% water, so it's not much of a stretch to say that "the basis of vitality and a long & healthy life is water”. If you want to feel good and be at your optimal health level, you should drink water on a daily basis. Because water molecules are smaller, they are better able to penetrate cell walls and "wash away" acidic buildup in your body caused by years of metabolizing food (Essentially, carry oxygen in and waste out.) Kangen water is also easily absorbed into organs like the intestines to eliminate toxins from the colon.
Kangen water is rich in molecular hydrogen and negative ORP. Simply put, active hydrogen molecules neutralize active oxygen (free radicals) in your body that cause aging and disease. The more free radicals we neutralize, the more toxins we can effectively flush from our system. Active hydrogen helps to create an alkaline buffer in the bloodstream, so that if you do consume something acidic, it is neutralized.
IN A SCIENTIFIC STUDY BY THE NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF HEALTH, IT WAS DISCOVERED:
"The consumption of hydrogen-rich water for 8 weeks resulted in a 39% increase (p<0.05) in antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase (SOD) and a 43% decrease (p< 0.05) in thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS) in urine. Further, subjects demonstrated an 8% increase in high density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol and a 13% decrease in total cholesterol/HDL cholesterol from baseline to 4 weeks." 2
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
According to this study, those who drank hydrogen-rich water showed a substantial increase in their antioxidant enzymes and a massive decrease in acid in the urine. Further, participants showed a significant increase in HDL the "good cholesterol," and a significant decrease in the "bad cholesterol."
'Electrolyzed Reduced Water' (aka Kangen Water® or hydrogen water) has been used in hospitals in Japan for decades.And, now you can make the same alkaline, antioxidant, mineral-rich, pure, safe, and healthy drinking water right in your own home.
