Kangen water is produced by Enagicģ Corporation's water ionisers, Enagic say that the ionised water produced by their water ionisers is different from the alkaline or ionised water that you can get from other much cheaper electronic water ionisers.
Whether you believe that depends on how much you value the premium cost of the Energic Kangen water machine, itís sold by network marketing where you can only but a Kangen water machine from a direct marketer, this is a independent sales representative who sells Kangen water machines for a commission, in the same way that Avon or Mary Kay representatives sell cosmetics and makeup for a commission.
In the case of Kangen water the high price of the machines is in part due to the fact that commissions of hundreds of pounds are paid to not only the person that sold you the machine but the person who recruited the person that sold your machine, these commission structures continue up several levels and when your paying several hundred pounds to each person in the networks upline (the chain of people who get a commission on the sale) this pushes the price of the machine up.
To counter that high price Enagic say that their machines are the gold standard and best that you can buy, much better than any other water ioniser or alkaline water machine, that might be true or it might be marketing, for myself Iíd rather have a water ioniser that was cheap, that way if I get bored with it I havenít wasted a lot of money.
Whilst Kangen water is ionised water or whatís called alkaline water which mans that itís not acid, itís the other way on the acidic scale, itís alkaline, there are lots of different water ionisers and alkaline water machines (you can use the words interchangeably), some cheaper than others.
Kangen water is alkaline water, water that has been ionised, thatís perfectly safe to drink and indeed Kangen water machines are sold as medical devices in Japan where the Enagic company is from, however pure alkaline or ionised water is safe, but water ionised by a machine that removes the minerals in the water is not so good for you as water without minerals means your body is not getting the essential minerals that you need.
Water ionisers that require chemicals to ionise the water will be removing some of the minerals in the water, choose a machine that does not require you to fill the machine with chemicals but just ionises the water using electricity.
Drinking water from a machine that uses chemicals to ionise the water and therefore removes minerals from the water will leave you deficient in those minerals if thatís your only source of water, so choose a water ioniser that does not use chemicals to ionise the water.
Kangen water is a trademarked word used by Enagic the company behind the Kangen water machine, so like Hoover, you can use any vacuum cleaner to clean the floor, but only the Hoover company can sell a Hoover, thatís the problem that Dyson had, they couldnít call their vacuum cleaner a Hoover because thatís a trademarked word, so just like vacuum cleaners, there are plenty of vacuum cleaners but only one Hoover, that doesnít make other vacuum cleaners good or bad in comparison to a Hoover, just different and thatís the same with ionised water or alkaline water (itís the same thing) machines, a Kangen water machine is the trademarked name of the Enagic water ioniser or alkaline water machine.
Other names for ionised water are alkaline water, reduced water, spa water, miracle water or living water as humorous as some of those names sound.
Kangen is not some Japanese mystical word for the special powers of ionised water past down by the ancients, itís a trade name for ionised water produced by Enagic, you can buy a water ioniser for much cheaper than Enagic the makers of Kangen water sell their machines for, of course Enagic will say that their Kangen water is so much more than normal ionised water or alkaline water (another name for ionised water), and thatís like one car manufacturer telling you their car is better than the other makes of car, they all get you down the road and if a cheap car is all you need then buy a cheap car and not an expensive car.
There are cheap water ionisers and expensive water ionisers and the choice is yours, certainly if your struggling to buy an expensive water ioniser or not sure that you would really use it once the novelty wore off then why not buy a cheap one and see how you get on with that.
For the top of the range SD501 water ioniser Enagic charge nearly £3,000, the price of course the sales commissions to not only the Enagic distributor who sold you the water ioniser but also to the distributor that recruited the distributor you purchased through, thatís several layers of commissions all adding up to a higher price than if you got a water ioniser from a company who did not use network marketing to distribute its products.
The fact that you can only buy a Kangen machine from a distributor and not in the shops or online at a much lower price without the distributor commissions might be seen by some as Kangen offering a higher quality machine than other companies or a vastly more expensive machine than other companies, depending on your point of view.
Water ionisers start at under £100 so you can see just how much more your paying for a Kangen machine, even the top of the range competitors water ioniser machines can be had for under £1,000, making you wonder just how much more expensive a Kangen machine is.
Kangen water is the water produced by a Kangen water ioniser available from Enagic, whilst only Enagic can sell Kangen water machines because it is a brand like Hoover is a brand of vacuum cleaner, it does not stop other companies from selling water ionisers or alkaline water machines which is what a Kangen machine is, Enagic or rather one of their self-employed distributors will tell you that a Kangen machine is not just a water ioniser, it is so much more and for nearly £3,000 I would hope it makes the tea and takes the kids to school too!
A Kangen machine filters tap water, you can plumb the Kangen machine in or attach a hose over your tab and it produces ionised water in both alkaline and acid varieties, which means that you can choose how acid or alkaline you want your water, Kangen machines and all electrical water ionisers use electrolysis where the machine ionises the water to varying different acid or alkaline settings so you can use the Kangen water for drinking, cooking, cleaning and beauty like washing your face or washing your vegetables in Kangen water!
Does that mean that any other manufacturer of water ionisers cannot produce Kangen water, thatís right itís a trademark so only Enagic can produce Kangen water machines, but a Kangen water machine is a water ioniser and all manufactures can produce water ionisers, so you can buy your ionised water from Enagic under the Kangen brand name or you can buy your ionised water from any manufacturer selling water ionisers or alkaline water (the same thing).
The reason water ionisers and alkaline machines are used interchangeably is because water ionisers produce alkaline water, so the machine gets two names a bit like a treadmill can be called a running machine.
Kangen water machines need water filters and cleaners and your need to factor the cost of these cleaners and filters into your purchase, not all water ionisers need filters and obviously the water ionisers that donít need filters will be cheaper to run than the ones that do need filters.
Kangen water machines and water ionisers in general (you canít call a water ioniser that is not made by Enagic a Kangen machine because other water ionisers canít use the brand name Kangen) all make water taste nice, because alkaline water has a nice refreshing taste to it, so if you like the taste of Kangen water or ionised water form another machine then keep drinking it, the point I want to make is that you have choice, there are expensive water ionisers and cheap water ionisers.
Water ionisers produce alkaline water, the level of alkaline or acid in water is measured by the pH of the water, the higher the pH the more acid the water, the lower the pH the more alkaline the water fans of alkaline water say that ionised water neutralises the acid in your blood and use this to say that diseases like cancer or heart disease or arthritis and just about any other medical compliant canít exist in alkaline environment and only exist in an acidic environment, whilst itís true that diseases canít exist in the blood in an alkaline environment thatís a bit of a stretch to say that any water ioniser can cure anything.
However, it has to be said that ionised water tastes fresh and if you like the taste and think alkaline water is doing you good then it probably is doing you good as much research has been put into positive thinking of patients and if the patient thinks something is helping they start to feel better, the end result of course is that they get better, so if it works for you then thatís what matters.
Alkaline water which is another name for ionised water, tastes fresh, so if you are not drinking enough water an enjoy the taste of alkaline water then that is one positive way to increase your water intake and water generally is god for you.
Alkaline water will hydrate your body, itís water after all, but others claim that because cancers canít exist in a alkaline environment in your body but only in an acidic environment that by changing your bodies environment to be alkaline the cancer will stop growing or go away or stop or slow down, thereís no proof of that and I like everyone else wish there was because if curing cancer was as simple as a water machine then all hospitals should have one.
As noted earlier, if you think it does you good then it probably will do you good due to the power of positive thinking, thatís a very personal thing, but if you think why not give it a try then do for the powers of positive thinking then do, but certainly donít think there is any medical evidence to the claims.
Think about it for a minute, could a water ioniser be the best kept secret that doctors around the world just donít know or could any hype around a particular disease be more to do with comments made by a freelance distributor looking to make a sale, if the person attending a water machine presentation asks if the water machine will cure their bad back, libido, hair loss or the dogs farting or any other medical complaint that the buyer might ask then the seller will be tempted to say, well it canít hurt, just give it a go, the seller is incentivised on each sale and so might exaggerate the claims made regardless of any guidelines the company might have, they are independent distributors after all and not tied to the company.
Not to be all negative about alkaline water, if you like the taste and feel it does you good, then drink alkaline water, buying a cheap water ioniser will be cheaper than buying expensive bottled water every day, so your save money and if you think it does you good, it probably is because of the power of positive thinking.
