Kangen® is a Japanese word, best translated into English as “Return To Original” which means several things when used to describe water.
Kangen Water® is simply an easier way of stating: Alkaline, ionized, electron rich, restructured, micro clustered, active hydrogen saturated, oxidation reduced, powerful water. It is trademarked and makes our lives a whole lot easier than having to say all this each time. What the name brand Kleenex is to tissue paper we are to alkaline ionized water.
Kangen Water® is first purified, then given an electrical charge to recreate electron rich water. It’s molecular formula shifts from H2O to H+ OH-. In plain old English, it’s now living water again.
Kangen Water® is water that has gone through a Special Electrolysis Process that changes the pH of the water to ALKALINE and much, much more. Most other water electrolysis equipment will not create active hydrogen in their water, therefore, the equipment merely produces ionized alkaline water, not true Kangen water.
Kangen Water® is also known to have small clusters of 5 to 6 water molecules , as a result of the electrolysis process. Making it a Super Hydrating water. You can taste the difference in your first glass. Tap water is typically 12 to 15 molecules per cluster. That is over double the size of Kangen Water®. Small clusters also mean that your body can readily absorb the minerals in this water into your cells in mere seconds.
Reverse Osmosis, Distilled and tap water will slosh around in your stomach and often flush key minerals out of your body because they lack these important properties. The electrical charge of Kangen® machine re-arranges healthy minerals that are naturally included in your tap water. As a result, Kangen Water® contains essential minerals, such as Calcium, Magnesium, and Potassium, in an ionic form that can be assimilated immediately into your body.
Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP) is a measurement of voltage.
When it is measured as a negative millivolt this is life enhancing (Electron rich).
When measured with a positive millivolt it is life depleting (Proton rich).
This ORP Factor is perhaps one of the most important characteristics of Kangen Water® because this is what distinguishes it from any other water on the market. Including its lesser grade cousin, Ionized Alkaline Water. The reading of mV indicates the millivolts of hydrogen electrons present in the water available to bond with the free radicals and flush them out.
These machines can produce incredibly functional waters, called Super Kangen Water® (ORP: below -550mV) and Super Acidic Water (ORP: over +1000mV). While they are not meant for drinking, the power of these two waters, particularly Super Acidic Water, has been widely recognized.
Uses for Alkaline Water or Kangen Water®:
- Enhances delivery of nutrients.
- Cooking with Alkaline water improves the nutritional value and the taste of food and drinks such as, tea and coffee.
- It makes acidic foods and drinks more alkaline.
