Happy Wednesday everyone! A few months ago, I invested in a Kangen Water Machine mainly because I wanted clean and healthy water that didn’t involve plastic bottles. I wanted to reduce my carbon footprint and create conscious and sustainable living. What I wasn’t aware of, is that the Kangen water machine can also create a chemical free sanctuary in my home. What could be better than that?
Kangen water is the name used to refer to the water created through an ionization technology.
What is ionized water, you ask?
In simple terms, ionized alkaline water is just regular water with a higher pH level. The ionizer uses a process known as electrolysis to separate the water into two components: one acidic and one alkaline. By drinking the separate stream that is mostly alkaline, you will enjoy a variety of health benefits. The discovery of the benefits of drinking alkaline water first took hold in Japan, but has now spread to countries all over the world.
In a more technical sense, the machines use a special electrochemical process to split the water molecules into hydrogen and oxygen. After the separation has taken place, the portion of water closest to the anode is considered to be acidic, while the water that is closest to the cathode is considered alkaline. The water near the cathode is siphoned for drinking purposes. The more acidic water near the anode could potentially be used for household cleaning. This alkaline water is then run through a highly efficient filtration system. The end result is healthy alkaline water that is also free from many impurities. It is said that more than 315 pollutants can be found in tap water in North American homes. Kangen water contains a much smaller percentage of pollutants.
Water is the Most Important Substance in the World
Drinking plenty of water on a daily basis is vital to our health. Water carries nutrients to cells, helps with digestion, flushes out toxins, helps prevent headache and fatigue, and can even aid in weight loss or maintenance. Our bodies are made of up to 75% water, and staying well-hydrated is critical to our optimum health and survival.
However, not all water is created equal
The Truth About the $13 Billion Bottle Water Industry
According to National Geographic, bottled water is a drain on the environment.
The US public goes through about 50 billion water bottles a year (yikes! 50 billion!)
and most of those plastic containers are not recycled. Transporting the bottles and
keeping them cold also burns fossils fuels which give off greenhouse gases.
1500 plastic bottles are consumed every second. Enough plastic is thrown away each year to circle the earth four times. And, it will take 1000 years for the plastic to degrade.
The plastic in bottled water often contains chemicals BPA and phthalates, which are proven to be hazardous to human health.
The non-profit, non-partisan Environmental Working Group (EWG) says, “The government does not mandate that bottled water be any safer than tap water. In fact, the chemical pollution standards are nearly identical.” Historically, bottled waters have even been recalled for contamination with particulate matter, mold and bacteria.

Further, as reported by ABC, environmental advocate Mae Wu has performed studies which show bottled is no safer or cleaner: There is actually more testing federally mandated on tap water than bottled. 100 compounds of tap water must be tested every day and the results posted online.
Kangen Water is Anti-Oxidant Rich, Health Water for Revitalized Cells and a Healthy Alternative To Regular Tap and Bottle Water
Kangen Water®… (aka electrolyzed reduced water (ERW), or hydrogen water) begins as tap water. The machine filters out chlorine and other impurities from the tap water, then separates the hydrogen and oxygen with a process known as electrolysis. This process adds an electron to the hydrogen creating a new molecule called diatomic molecular hydrogen gas. When this is added to your drinking water, it produces antioxidant-rich Kangen Water®.
Oxidant, by definition, is an oxidizing agent, while antioxidant is any substance that acts to slow or prevent the oxidation of another chemical. In the human body, oxidative damage has been implicated in many of our modern day diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and diabetes. Antioxidants, on the other hand, act to tame the free radicals (or highly reactive chemicals) in the body that have potential to harm cells and cause disease.
Kangen Water Has Many Amazing Uses Beyond Drinking Water
Kangen Water® machines can produce incredible waters that can replace household chemicals! There are over 60 different ways use, treat, spray and drink Kangen water, but here are just a few of our favorite ways to use Kangen Water…
