Kangen Water Machines
Kangen Water is a very special water that is radically changing the lives of many people around the world. The word kangen means “return to origin” in Japanese and describes water that has been returned to the state in which it is often found in nature.
It has powerful antioxidant, akaline & anti-ageing properties and is a great way to increase hydration, balance body pH, neutralise free radicals and obtain optimal health.
Kangen Water is produced by water ionisers manufactured exclusively by Enagic, a Japanese company founded in 1974. Their units are approved as a medical device by the Japanese Ministry of Health and Welfare and are used in numerous hospitals and clinics there.
You won’t find Kangen Water on the supermarket shelves as it cannot be bottled for more than a few days – the only way to have a fresh supply is to have it from the machine. Enagic have now introduced a range of domestic models so that both you and your family can enjoy the wonderful benefits of drinking Kangen Water in the comfort of your own home.
Problems with commonly used waters
- Tap water:
Tap water is a healthier option than soft drinks. But according to the Environmental Working Group, there have been 315 pollutants found in America's tap water since 2004, and over half of these pollutants are completely unregulated and can legally exist in any amount.
At the current levels of contamination, the public is starting to question the quality of tap water and wonders if it is safe enough to drink. Based on these facts, it's no wonder that the demand for Kangen Water® is constantly increasing.

- Bottled water:
Bottled water is not necessarily healthier than tap water and yet it costs much more! Although associated with healthy water, bottled water is not guaranteed to be any healthier than tap water. Often the only difference is the added minerals which have no proven health benefits.
A four-year study by the Natural Resources Defense Council shows that 1/3 of the bottled water tested contains levels of contamination which exceed allowable limits. Bottled water can also be slightly acidic, which may affect your body's pH balance. Finally, the environmental impact caused by the production and disposal of plastic bottles is harmful to our ecosystem.

- Reverse osmosis water:
Reverse Osmosis is a filtering process which may be effective in areas that do not receive municipally treated water and is commonly used in bottled water facilities. The problem with this process is that dangerous chemicals like pesticides, herbicides, and chlorine are molecularly smaller than water and can pass freely through the filter. Reverse osmosis removes healthy, naturally occurring water minerals. These minerals not only provide good taste, they also serve a vital function in the body's system. When stripped of these minerals, water can be unhealthy. Also, 2-3 gallons of water are wasted for every gallon of purified water produced.
