Enagic Kangen Water Machines Whats with all the hype???
So what is Kangen Water?? Like really, what is it? It literally exploded all over my Facebook news feed like wildfire, and like any other normal person who gets curious about things, I headed straight over to YouTube and google. I wanted to know if it was a scam, simply because, a lot of my friends have a machine, and they pretty much swear by its miracle goodness. Personally, it’s water, wow, big deal. I wanted to know what all the hype was about.

pH??? What on earth is pH???
I recently attended a home demonstration of this machine through a friend. They started by testing the pH and alkaline levels in a variety of drinks. They had six different brands of bottled water, coconut water, soft drinks. They kept talking about the ‘pH’ levels in our body. And to be honest, I had no idea what they were talking about. So to really understand what this machine is all about, I had to learn and understand what pH is.
So basically, pH tells us how acidic or alkaline we are.
The body has an acid-alkaline (or acid-base) ratio called the pH which is a balance between positively charged ions (acid-forming) and negatively charged ions (alkaline-forming.) You got that??? neither did I. But if you did understand that, ‘you rock’. I, however, had to dig a little deeper to get it.
In my terms, too much acid in you’re body is not good, It causes all sorts of health problems. So we need to balance it out. And we balance it out by eating more alkaline foods. Having our bodies slightly more alkaline is good. Ideally, our pH level should be slightly alkaline – 7.30 to 7.45. In saying that, this Kangen machine is supposed to help us keep that balance by drinking the water these machines produce using an electrolysis process.
Here is a pH balance chart
What has all this got to do with the Kangen water machine?
Alkaline water raises the pH of water, Raising the pH makes it easier for our bodies to absorb. Water must have an alkaline pH of about 8.3 to be absorbed in the intestines. If you drink water that doesn’t have an alkaline pH, you’re intestines will alkalize the water before it is absorbed. Sounds pretty simple right
According to the Enagic website.
“Kangen Water® is delicious water created from Enagic®’s innovative water technology. Not only do these devices filter you’re tap water but they also produce ionized alkaline and acidic waters through electrolysis. These waters can be used for various purposes including drinking, cooking, beauty, and cleaning.”
Sounds just like any other water ionizer right. So what makes this machine different?
This Japanese company claims that the water their machines produce is unique and better than everything else on the market, and they’ve given themselves a label as the ‘Gold Standard’.
Below is a video demonstration that I found on YouTube about the Enagic Kangen Water.
Pro’s and Con’s
- Kangen water Is and Antioxidant water. And we all know that antioxidants is great for our health.
- It restores the bodys pH balance.
- It can make you’re skin and hair shinier.
- Helps loosen and eliminates water retention.
- Alkaline water is great for detoxifying our body
Our Kidneys need water to get rid of toxins and alkaline water is ideal for a really good detox. Toxins enter our bodies through, poor nutrition, synthetic additives, pollution, stress, medication, and it these factors damages our cells. So the best way to fight these toxins is to add antioxidants from food and water. Acidic waste that is collected in the body can lead to serious health issues. Alkaline water can neutralize the acidity that we consume every day and removes the acidic substance from our cells and tissues.
- Kangen water doesn’t keep very long if you try to bottle it. After the demonstration I attended at my friends place, She offered some bottled Kangen water for me to take home and trial. Only to find out from my Doctor that it won’t keep for long, so I better drink it fast. The Enagic website says, ‘The state of the water does change when the water is heated or chilled. When heated, the ORP and pH changes. When chilled, the ORP will change but the pH will remain the same for up to a week based on the quality of water’.
- Kangen water is sold only through multi-level marketing, not that that’s a bad thing, It just makes it very expensive.
- It has a single filter.
- If you live in Australia and New Zealand, and you’re machine needs to be serviced/repaired/deep cleaned, you have to mail you’re machine or take it in to the office at Maquarie Park.
You may have heard claims that Kangen Water can cure disease: Those claims aren’t backed by research or evidence. In fact, Enagic – the manufacturer of the Kangen Machine – does not allow its sales representatives to make medical claims, but they do anyway.
Most customer reviews that I have read, have very positive outcomes in terms of their health. Most complaints about the Kangen machines are with the price. Some experts on Ionized water say that you can get a machine that does the same thing, if not better, for half the price.
The only reason I don’t have a machine, Is because of its price. It Is the most expensive Ionizer machine on the market. If you’re thinking about getting an Enagic Kangen machine, I would recommend that It’s worth doing some research on you’re own before getting one.
I am a firm believer in testimony. Especially if it’s people that I know and trust. A lot of my friends have a machine and are more than happy to let me go over and fill up some bottles for my family and I. I personally haven’t noticed any significant difference in my everyday life since trying the Enagic Kangen water. Our journey to living a healthy lifestyle requires us to eat wholefood, good nutrition. We also drink at least three litres of water daily, and because of these changes, we feel good, sleep better, have more energy and we all look good. So drinking this water has made no difference to how good we already feel. I believe in the balance of everything in life. In all aspects and everything that we do, there must be a balance. So I sit neutral when it comes to this machine. Like I said, do a bit more research into the product and the company before you buy.
If you have any questions at all, or if you live on the southside of Brisbane, QLD Australia, and would like to sample some Enagic Kangen water from my friends, Leave a comment or email email@example.com. I’ll be more than happy to help with that, and so would my friends.
Till next time, Take care
