The Wonderful Benefits of Kangen Water

We already know that we should drink at least eight glasses of water a day, but is the water you’re drinking actually good for you? 

Tap water is full of chemicals and contaminants; bottled water could be just as unsafe because of the chemicals in the plastic containers. If they are not recycled, the bottles could be extremely harmful to the environment because the plastic bottles will further pollute the already polluted environment. 

Kangen water is not only good for your body; it also helps reduce the number of plastic bottles that end up in our environment. Kangen Water® Ionizers are capable of producing five different types of water, so it is extremely useful in many ways. The pH of the water produced ranges from pH 2.5 (acidic for disinfection), pH 4.0 – 4.6 (for beauty), pH 7.0 (for baby food and medication), pH 8.5, 9.0, 9.5 (for drinking), to pH 11.0 (for cleaning).

Below is a detailed list of the wonderful benefits of Kangen water: 

1.  It’s clean and safe. Since Kangen machines filtrate tap water, you won’t have to worry about the chemicals and contaminants that you may have been consuming unknowingly from unfiltered tap water or bottled water. 

2.  It tastes good. This alkaline drinking water has a fresh taste and a sweet, pleasant flavor. You can drink it in pH 8.5 – 9.5. 

3.  It brings out the flavor in other foods and drinks. Use Kangen water with the pH of 8.5 – 9.5 to bring out the flavor in stews and soup. It also enhances the flavors and aroma of coffee and tea. 

4.  It has a lot of minerals. Alkaline water includes calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium, which help improve health in various ways. Calcium builds bones and keeps them healthy; magnesium helps turn food into energy; sodium regulates blood pressure and supports nerve and muscle function and potassium promoted healthy digestion. 

5. It soothes heartburn, acid reflux and indigestion. Drinking alkaline water at pH 8.8 may help inactivate pepsin, the main enzyme that causes acid reflux, as shown in a study published in Annals of Otology, Rhinology & Laryngology. For fast relief, drink 1⁄4 cup of fresh pH 11.5 immediately followed by 750 milliliters of pH 9.5. Do not eat or drink anything for 45 minutes. Repeat the next day only if necessary.

6.  It reduces high blood pressure, blood sugar, and cholesterol. Multiple studies have shown that drinking alkaline water has helped decrease high blood pressure, blood sugar, and cholesterol among people with diabetes and hypertension. They found that a high-pH electrolyte water reduced blood viscosity, the thickness and stickiness of your blood, in the participants after exercising.

7. It has anti-ageing properties. Alkaline water has many powerful antioxidants that help prevent the growth of cell-damaging free radicals in the body, which can further speed up the ageing process. Alkaline water seeks out free radicals and turns them into oxygen which your body can use for energy production and tissue oxygenation. Cancer and most other illnesses cannot survive in an oxygenated, alkaline environment.

8.  It helps increase hydration. Alkaline water has ultra-hydrating properties as compared to regular water. This is because the water molecules in alkaline water are smaller and more readily absorbed by your cells, which help your body re-hydrate quickly. This can be a beneficial drink for those who exercise regularly and require more amount of water in their body. 

9. It can be used for cleaning and sanitizing. Strong Kangen alkaline water with a pH of 11 – 11.5 has dissolving and heat conducting benefits, which makes it effective for cleaning. It works well on grime and when cleaning other kitchen areas, including chopping boards and dishcloths. It can also remove coffee, soy sauce, and oil stains. Meanwhile, strong acidic water with a pH of 2.5 is perfect for sanitation and disinfection of surfaces, but it is also safe to use on hands and it can be used as mouth wash. 

10. It can be used to treat acne and other skin conditions. Rinsing with pH 11.5 water is good for oily skin. Cleanse area with a non-soap cleanser and Kangen water with the pH of 4 – 6 (mild acidic water). With a cotton swab dab pH 2.5 (strong acidic water) on any active blemishes or broken skin. Tone with pH 4 - 6 Water in a glass bottle with a fine spray mister for acne, rashes and burns; tone with pH 5.5 water for eczema and psoriasis. 

5 Easy Tips to Stay Hydrated, Happy and Healthy

As you probably know, as humans we're made up of about 70% water, which means we need to drink lots of water each day to stay hydrated. It's important to stay hydrated so that you can stay healthy, energised and happy. 

 How do you know if you're dehydrated? 
 Typical signs of dehydration are: 
- Thirst and a dry mouth 
- Dark yellow urine 
- Bad breath 
- Fatigue or muscle fatigue 
- Headaches 
- Constipation 

 If you have any of these symptoms, you need to drink more water! Plus, it's also important to consider the quality of the water you drink, as most communal water supply systems contain pollutants that put an extra toxin load on your body. 

At the very least, you should install a filtration system in your home to remove pollutants like calcium, flouride and other heavy metals. I highly recommend the Kangan Water System as I've used it myself for three years. It creates an electrical charge as the water goes through the medical grade device and as such breaks down the molecules of the water so it is easier to drink and tastes delicious and provides your body with a very pure water source. 

So how much water do you need exactly, to stay hydrated? Your age, gender, physical activity level and climate all help determine how much water you need to stay hydrated. For example, health experts advise that adult women need about 2L of water daily while adult men need about 2.5-3.3 L. Typically, the greater your body mass, and the more physical activity you do, the greater the amount of water you need. If you're experiencing any of the symptoms above, here are five great small things you can do to stay hydrated.

8 Glasses A Day Keeps The Fat Away

The transparent, colourless liquid (H2O) which falls from the sky as rain, issues from the ground as springs and composes ¾ of the earth’s surface in the form of rivers lakes etc. (Webster’s New Lexicon Dictionary)


Water is probably the single, most important catalyst in losing weight and keeping it off. One of the things we take most for granted, water plays a very important role in permanent weight loss. It aids in suppressing the appetite naturally and metabolising stored fat.


Studies show that a increase in water intake can actually reduce fat deposits. The kidneys do not function properly without enough water. When this occurs, some of the load is passed on to the liver has to aid the kidneys, it cannot function efficiently. Consequently, the liver metabolises less fat, thus fat remains stored in the body and weight loss ceases.


Many people, whose bodies retain water, drink less water, hoping to eliminate the problem. The body sees this action as a threat to its survival, so it attempts to hold on to every drop. Water is then stored in spaces outside the body’s cells. This causes swollen feet, hands and legs. Diuretics offer only temporary relief. The best way to overcome excess water retention is to give the body what it needs, which is plenty of water! Only then can stored water be released.


Overweight people need more water than thin people. Larger people have a large metabolic load. Water also helps to maintain proper muscle tone by giving muscles their natural ability to contract and by preventing dehydration. It helps prevent sagging skin that usually follows weight loss. Shrinking cells are plumped up by water. The complexion then appears clean, healthy and resilient. Water also flushes wastes from the body and thus eliminates constipation. The endocrine gland function improves, thus the entire system functions more efficiently.


Water not only accomplishes all of the things listed above, but it also works with fibre to create a satisfied feeling and help subdue hunger pangs. At least 6 – 8 glasses of water per day is recommended.
