what is Kangen Water?
also known as electrolyzed reduced water (ERW, treated by electrolysis), Kangen Water is produced through a Kangen Water machine called a K8 created by the Japanese company called Enagic. The K8 was originally designed for Japanese hospitals for a variety of uses, but is now enjoyed by thousands of people world wide right in their homes. The machine is a medical grade in home water ionizer that produces 7 different levels of custom pH water. Water runs from your tap, through the machine, crossing over 8 platinum coated titanium mesh plates to put the water through the electrolysis process.
Kangen Water is rich in active molecular hydrogen, which is an extremely powerful antioxidant. Molecular hydrogen is an active antioxidant that "has therapeutic potential in over 170 different human and animal disease models and essentially every organ of the human body." Hydrogen gas acts as a powerful antioxidant that has been show to protect cells from even the most cytotoxic reactive oxygen species. H2 also supports your body's natural antioxidant system by signaling pathways associated with the prevention of disease. Pain relief as well is reported from consuming Kangen Water due to the reduction in oxidative stress caused by the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of hydrogen gas.
Hydrogen rich water has also been shown to have an alkalizing effect in the blood, protect against metabolic conditions, boost your mitochondria function for energy, protect against DNA damage, have a calming effect on allergic reactions, reduce pain from chemotherapy in cancer patients, and protect the organs against damage due to the anti-inflammatory and oxidative stress fighting effects.
Oxidation is a chemical reaction that can produce free radicals in the body, thereby leading to chain reactions that may damage the cells of organisms. Oxidation is similar to rust, it is the breakdown of any material when exposed to oxygen. Antioxidants are the compounds that inhibit oxidation, thereby protecting cells from the damage that oxidation causes.
"Water treated through electrolysis to increase its oxidation reduction potential (ORP) is the best solution to the problem of providing a safe source of free electrons to block the oxidation of normal tissue by free oxygen radicals."
In addition to the incredible health benefits of the water, the need for plastic based products in your home virtually disappears when you welcome a K8 into your life. Read through the PDF document below to discover all the ways the K8 can benefit you, your family and the planet.
