Types of Water
We often call the earth "The Planet of Water".
Roughly 70% of its surface is covered with water. All living things
on the planet rely on water for survival. We need to drink lots of
water, but unfortunately most of the drinking water available to
us is simply not healthy anymore. In some cases, our drinking
water is dangerous to our health.
How do you feel about drinking 8 glasses of tap water each day?
Chlorination makes tap water safe to drink but it can also react
with organic compounds inside your body to produce toxic
substances, especially in your colon. Small amounts of chlorine
are added to our public drinking water supply to kill bacteria and
other microorganisms. This amount of chlorine is small enough
for us to drink but it can still kill bacteria and enzymes in our
body essential to digestion.
During a shower, our bodies absorb roughly 2 glasses of this
chlorinated water through our skin. We also inhale the mist and
steam of this water while we shower. Nearly all tap water supplies
contain large amounts of active oxygen (oxidants) and high
positive ORP (Oxidation Reduction Potential) values. Having a
high POSITIVE ORP means that tap water can be very oxidizing,
or destructive to your body.
Purified Water Distilled Water and Reverse
Distilled water and water purified by reverse osmosis may not
have most pollutants and additives found in tap water, but it also
lacks any minerals naturally found earth's water that are
essential to our well being. These processes remove
EVERYTHING from the water, including helpful minerals.
Since this water contains no minerals or life whatsoever, it
leaches vital minerals and alkaline buffers from our bodies.
Distilled water and reverse osmosis water have no energy or
vitality at all and can contribute to an acidic state in our bodies.
Bottled Water (Including "Mineral Water")
You might think that bottled water is healthier than tap water. But
in a four-year scientific study, The NRDC (Natural Resources
Defense Council) tested more than 1,000 bottles of 103 brands,
a third of them were found to contain contaminants such as
arsenic and carcinogens.
Recently, another shocking study showed that over time cancer-
causing toxins such as dioxin leach into the water from the
plastic bottle. Actually, a lot of the bottled "spring" waters are just
filtered tap water put in a plastic bottle. These bottles often
remain on store and factory shelves, unopened for months or
Bottled water is essentially dead water. If you choose your water
based on the package or the brand, you should know that some
95% of the price you are paying for that bottled water is covering
other costs, such as packaging, advertising, distribution costs,
rather than the water itself.
Yet, bottled water is so popular and available almost
everywhere. As a result, the bottled water industry enjoys annual
sales of more than $3.5 billion worldwide. 15 years ago people
wouldn't spend $3-$5 per day on bottled water; these days they
Alkaline Ionized Water
Alkaline ionized water is by far the healthiest water available
today. Decades of scientific and medical research have gone
into its developement. It is produced by an in-home machine that
first filters and then ionizes tap water. This process splits the
water into its alkaline and acidic parts. The alkaline water is used
for drinking. It has tremendous hydrating and antioxidant
qualities, due in part to its smaller water clusters and abundance
of extra electrons created by the ionization process.
Kangen™ Water - The Highest Grade of Alkaline
Kangen™ water has the strongest antioxidant power of any
alkaline ionized water. The Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP)
of Kangen™ water can reach up to -500mV, where most
average ionized water reaches only around -150mV.
The difference is significant. As a matter of fact, regular Alkaline
Ionized Water units are classified as "home health appliance,"
while Kangen™ Water units are in the "medical device"
classification by the Ministry of Health and Welfare in Japan,
which is equivalent to the FDA in the U.S. Currently, out of 44
companies manufacturing ionized water generators, Only 6 of
them make units certified as Kangen™ Water grade.
Enagic ONLY manufactures certified Kangen™ Water units. And
its quality is considered by many as the best of the best in the
The word "Kangen™" "return to origin" in Japanese. A more
general meanings would be "renewing" or "restoring". Drinking
Kangen™ Water can help "renew" and "restore" a healthy
balance in your life.
