Kangen water is a substance constructed from the process of producing ionized alkalinity to acidic water through electrolysis via the Enagic water machine. Thought of today as being more healthy for the human body than protein shakes, the water has become a most popular staple in the homes of a host of celebrities and professional sports icons who fully support the product’s use and endorsement.
It is known for its muscle tissue strengthening properties by reducing the acidic buildup in the body which in turn prevents fatigue due to the transformed alkaline makeup of the water once the process is done.
Who would’ve thought that water could be so complicated? Doing a little research on pH balances of the digestive system will help in our understanding, but apparently Kangen water takes care of a lot of issues in one fell swoop once it comes from the tube to the tap.
Let’s dive a little deeper into the science of the water, the machinery that produces it, and the people who swear by it.
3 Main Properties of Kangen Water
1. Anti-Oxidation – You cut an apple in half to eat but leave the other half sitting out for a while. What happens to it? It begins to turn brown! Why does this happen? Because the oxygen that we breath is constantly oxidizing everything in our atmosphere. So if the oxygen we breath can turn the apple brown, imagine what the inside of your body looks like. How does Kangen water have anti-oxidants? It’s the active hydrogen in the water that’s been produced after the electrolysis process.
Kangen water can help with with anti-aging, is a anti-inflammatory, and is also packed with anti-oxidants. Measuring at a negative ORP (Oxidation Reduction Potential) of -400 and even as high as -800, Kangen water has the negative charged electrons to reduce oxidation in your body at a cellular level. So if you want to look like a grape and not like a raisin, this is the water you need to be drinking!
2. Micro-Clustering – Have you ever gotten that bloated feeling after drinking a lot of water? Or maybe you’re big into fitness and have felt that wishy-washy feeling of the water moving around when you’re moving? If you have, that’s because a regular H20 cluster has 15-26 molecules per cluster. Larger clusters limit absorption by the body. Kangen water on the other hand contains only 5-6 molecules per H20 cluster. This smaller water will quite literally penetrate your body at a cellular level. Which means optimal hydration without the bloating.
3. Alkalinity (pH) – The reason why the pH is so important is because alkalinity is the epitome of health. We were born from an alkaline environment when we were growing in the amniotic sac of our mothers womb. When we are born, our skin is soft and smells amazing. However, as time passes by, we begin to consume foods that cause more acidity which then causes the breakdown of the human body. When your body is more acidic (negatively altered pH), this can cause many health related illnesses. Kangen water is alkalized and can be consumed at a pH of 8.5, 9.0, and 9.5 (purple) – thus neutralizing the acidity in your body.
