Innovative Water Technology

By integrating the latest scientific research and superior Japanese craftsmanship with nature's most vital resource for life, Enagic has pioneered the way of continuous Kangen Water® generating systems. Since 1974, Enagic has specialized in providing in-home, alkaline water ionization technologies. Our mission is to provide true health and wellness internationally with our Gold-Standard product line.

Enagic is proud to be one of the only water purification and ionization companies in the world that carries four distinct certifications from the Water Quality Association (WQA) - one of the oldest and most prestigious international not-for-profit trade associations in the world. The WQA has honored Enagic with the Gold Seal, a highly- distinguished award that is only given to the most reliable and trusted producers of quality drinking water. The level of excellence, quality, and care demonstrated by Enagic has set this leading company apart from every other water ionizer producer around the globe.

Kangen Water is a revolutionary form of ionized alkaline water produced by Enagic's advanced water ionization technology. It is created through a process called electrolysis, which separates water into alkaline and acidic components. Kangen Water is known for its unique properties, including its high pH level, antioxidant potential, and smaller water cluster size, which allows for better hydration and cellular absorption. With its superior quality and health benefits, Kangen Water has gained recognition worldwide as a key element in achieving optimal well-being.

  • Kangen Water® has a negative oxidation-reduction potential or ORP.
  • Kangen Water® does not remove many minerals that are lost in the process of purifying bottled water.
  • By choosing to drink alkaline water, you aid your body in returning to a balanced state. Kangen Water® is a fresh, clean and great tasting way to obtain optimal health!

Properties of Kangen Water

  • Active Hydrogen Rich
    Through the process of electrolysis, your tap water becomes Active Hydrogen (OH-) rich Kangen Water® . Kangen Water® is high concentration of Active Hydrogen (OH-). It is an efficient antioxidant that diffuses rapidly across cell membranes and can reduce free radicals, suppressing oxidative stress.
  • Negative ORP (Oxidation-Reduction Potential)
    Active Hydrogen rich water is characterized by exhibiting a negative ORP. A high ORP value (in positive numbers), indicates that a substance has a higher oxidizing potential. In generalized terms, for humans a positive or high ORP is better for the outside of the body (cleaning and sanitizing). A low ORP value (in negative numbers) indicates that a substance has a higher anti-oxidizing potential, and is preferred for oral consumption. Just like pH, ORP values are an important measurement for determining the quality of water.
  • Alkaline
    As with most things in life, optimal health begins with balance. Our bodies must maintain a pH balance of 7.365, which is slightly alkaline. A pH scale is used to determine whether a substance is acidic or alkaline. On this scale 7.0 is neutral. Anything above 7 is considered alkaline and anything below 7 is considered acidic.
The Electrolysis Process:

STEP 1: FILTRATION the internal HighGrade Filter filters chlorine, unpleasant taste and odor, and reduces sediments up to 5 micrometers to produce Clean Water.

Your use of external Pre-Filtration systems does NOT substitute for the necessity to use the special Enagic HG filter installed in the used device, and to replace it periodically, in order to ensure the quality of the water resulting from the electrolysis process.
STEP 2: ELECTROLYSIS through several* electrode plates and membranes, the filtered water is separated into acidic and alkaline parts. Water is spited into OH- (hydroxide ions) and H+ (hydrogen ions). The hydrogen ions react with electrons given by the cathode (– charged electrode), forming H2, molecular Hydrogen. Hydroxide ions remain, making the water more alkaline around the cathode. Conversely, close to the anode (+ charged electrode), hydroxide ions give electrons to the anode, eventually forming O2 (Oxygen). Hydrogen ions remain, making the water more acidic around the anode. The two kinds of water are separated by membranes and released through different hoses. *number depending on machine model.
- Which is the best Kangen machine?
Determining the "best" Kangen machine depends on your individual needs and preferences. Here are a few popular models that are highly regarded:
  • Enagic K8: The Enagic K8 is a top-of-the-line model known for its advanced electrolysis technology and eight platinum-coated titanium plates. It offers a wide pH range, from highly alkaline to slightly acidic water, providing versatility for various applications. The K8 also features a large LCD panel, multiple language options, and a built-in water filter.
  • Enagic SD501: The Enagic SD501 is one of the most recognized and best-selling Kangen Water machines. It features a seven-plate electrolysis chamber, which allows for a consistent and reliable water ionization process. The SD501 offers five different types of water, adjustable pH levels, and a user-friendly interface.

- The 5 Kangen Water Type: how they can be used?
  1. Strong Kangen Water (pH 11.0): Strong Kangen Water is highly alkaline and serves various purposes. It is ideal for cleaning and removing tough stains due to its excellent emulsifying and dissolving properties. Use it to sanitize cutting boards, utensils, and surfaces effectively.
  2. Kangen Water® (pH 8.5-9.5): This type of Kangen Water is the most commonly used. With a slightly alkaline pH, it helps to restore balance in the body and supports optimal hydration. It is an excellent choice for everyday drinking, cooking, and preparing beverages such as tea and coffee.
  3. Clean Water (pH 7.0): Clean Water is filtered through the Kangen Water machine without any ionization, resulting in a neutral pH level. While it doesn't have the alkalizing properties of other Kangen Water types, it still undergoes a thorough filtration process, making it a safe and refreshing option for drinking.
  4. Beauty Water (pH 4.0-6.0): Beauty Water is slightly acidic, making it suitable for external use. Its gentle astringent properties can help tone and hydrate the skin, acting as a natural beauty enhancer. Use it for skincare routines, including facial cleansing, toning, and even as a hair rinse for lustrous locks.
  5. Strong Acidic Water (pH 2.7): Strong Acidic Water has powerful sterilizing properties and a low pH level. It is a natural alternative to harsh chemical cleaners, effectively eliminating germs and bacteria on surfaces. Use it for disinfecting purposes, including cleaning kitchen utensils, countertops, and bathrooms.
