After 24 hours the antioxidant properties created by the hydroxyl ions will have dissipated, the higher level of alkaline pH will have dropped to a neutral 7 pH within 2 weeks and the smaller cluster size of the hydroxyl ions will have reverted after 1 month, if you keep the water refrigerated then 3 months.
Thatís the best case scenario and of course relies on premise that Kangen water can actually change the shape of the ions within the water, some commentators have observed doubts about that, left out in the open without a lid the Kangen water will lose itís ionisation within two days because carbon dioxide in the air (what people breath out) will turn the water acidic.
The LeveLuk Kangen water machine can produce purified drinking water and Kangen water (alkaline water), for best results and taste your want to either drink the water as soon as itís made and not store the water so if canít go off, or if you must store the water, store it in a fridge with a lid on the water bottle, whilst technically the ionised water will retain its structure for several weeks, the water will only truly stay fresh to taste for 24 hours.
Water that is extremely acidic or alkaline will last longer than weaker pH water, a acidic 2.5 pH water and a highly alkaline 11.5 p[H water will last for two weeks, but you wouldnít want to drink either as these are very acidic and very alkaline waters for cleaning and boiling, for best taste drink water straight from the machine and donít stock pile water.
How you store the alkaline water matters too, many plastics contain toxins which can leak into the water and make alkaline water acidic, always store alkaline water in a glass jar or bottle with stainless steel bottles being the next best choice, also make sure that the lids if plastic are made from BPA free plastics, BPA is a toxic chemical found in many plastics which will cause the alkaline water to turn acidic.
Ionised water contains hydrogen bubbles, you can see them in the water, the bubbles will dissipate after one hour, the water will still be drinkable if stored in a fridge, but for best results drink ionised water straight from the machine within one hour of production.
Store your Kangen water in mason jars, these traditional glass jars not only look cool but make sure the Kangen water stays fresh and is not contaminated, stainless steel is the next best option with BPA plastic bottles coming in last.
Your get the most benefit from drinking Kangen water within the first 30 days as your body will have the most to gain from better hydration and the removal of toxins from your body.
