remarkable properties of kangen water
antioxidants (active molecular hydrogen)
Free radicals are uncharged molecules missing an electron and they are constantly being produced in the human body by unhealthy lifestyle choices and even naturally by just breathing in oxygen.
Oxidation in the body can’t be stopped, or else you would never age and die, however, research indicates that the process can be slowed down with antioxidants. This is why it is recommended to eat a wide variety of fruits and vegetables because they are filled with antioxidants. However, eating a wide variety of foods every day can sometimes be difficult in our on-the-go culture. Active hydrogen in kangen water helps to create an alkaline buffer in the blood stream, so that if you do consume something acidic, it is neutralized.
Antioxidants in liquids can be measured using an ORP meter (oxidation reduction potential. The higher the negative reading on the ORP meter the higher the antioxidants. This means the reduction of oxidative stress from your body is more effective, minimizing the risk of cancer and onset of other diseases.
Kangen water has the highest antioxidant measurement compared to any other liquid on the planet, reading at -450 mV.
Water comes in clusters of molecules (rather than single molecules), and tap and bottled water contains very large clusters of up to 13 molecules. It is as if 13 groups of water are essentially holding hands as they go into your body.
This makes you feel fuller longer after drinking a glass of tap or bottled water, because of the amount of water molecules that need to be processed for hydration.
Microclustered water (kangen water) contains only 5-6 molecule clusters. This allows the water to be much more hydrating for the cells and the body allowing more nutrients to be absorbed into the cells at a faster rate. Hence, why they call it hydration at the cellular level. This takes away the bloating sensation that most people feel when they drink a lot of water at once. You don't get feel this way with kangen water because it doesn't sit in your stomache and it eliminates toxins from your body more efficiently.
By drinking micro-clustered water you will notice enhanced energy levels, an improvement in your overall aerobic capacity and health, and will prevent premature aging.
Kangen water is run through a process called electrolysis among titanium plates which use the minerals already present in our water to alkalize the water. Kangen machines produce 4 different types of drinking water, 7.0pH, 8.5pH, 9.0pH, and 9.5pH. pH is a measurement of the acidity or alkalinity of a solution. 7pH being neutral, anything below it being acidic, and anything above being alkaline.
Our body is always working on naturally maintaining the acid-alkaline balance of our blood at exactly 7.4pH. This means that if your body cannot maintain your blood's pH at any given moment, you die. The problem is with this is that when your body is overly acidic, your system has to work even harder to keep that balance. That can in turn cause stress in other areas because it begins to steal minerals from other areas. When your body becomes too acidic, it can interfere with the activity of all the cells in your body. This is why as you age you start getting illnesses and pains such as cancer, joint pain, Alzheimer's, etc. This is a growing issue nowadays because the Western American diet is filled acidic foods like meat, eggs, dairy, wheat, soda, coffee, processed sugar, smoking, alcohol, as well as stress, and exposure to environmental toxins.
