What Types of Water are There?

What Types of Water are There?

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.

Tap Water

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

even years.

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

Ionized Water

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.
