Kangen water has a pH of between 7.0 to 11.0, you can vary the pH or the water making the water more alkaline or more acidic as required, the different pH of water is used for different activities like drinking alkaline water, washing your face or washing vegetables ready for cooking.
Kangen is the name of the machine that makes the alkaline water, the water is made alkaline by a process called ionisation which uses electricity to ionise the water, its claimed that hydrogen rich water restores the body to a more alkaline state, Iíd argue the Kangen produces ionised water, not more hydrogen, after all you want to drink the water not blow up!
Acidic water not suitable for drinking will have a pH of 7, water to be used to clean and disinfect will have a pH of 8-9.5 and fully acidic water used for cleansing skin which Kangen call beauty water has a pH of 11.
Alkaline water has a higher pH than drinking water from the tap, itís thought that alkaline water can neutralise the acid built-up in your body, there is no proof that drinking alkaline water can do this, water from the tap in your home will have a pH of 7 with alkaline water produced by a Kangen machine will have a pH of 8 or 9.
Everyone needs to drink water daily to remain hydrated and healthy, you can drink normal tap water or Kangen water to hydrate yourself, many bottled waters like spring or mineral water will have a surprisingly low pH making the water acidic.
High pH water is alkaline, water ionisers like the Kangen can produce water with very high Ph, up to 11 and this is known as Super Kangen Water, conversely Kangen water with a very low pH is known as Super Acidic Water.
Itís easy to select the pH of the water you want produced with a Kangen machine, for example the pH level on the SD501 can be adjusted between acidic and alkaline.
Adjust the pH to between 8.5 to 9.5 and you have alkaline water thatís ideal for drinking and cooking, many people regard cooking in alkaline water as a healthy alternative to acidic water from the tap, itís claimed that keeping the body in an alkaline state by drinking alkaline water will maintain health, but thereís no proof to that.
You can use Kangen water all around the home, for example for baby you can replace baby wipes with a water bottle contained with a mild acidic water, use this, a soft cloth and paper towels to clean baby before a nappy change, the slightly acidic water will prevent nappy rash.
