Posted by Water Ionizer Expert on December 17, 2015 0 Comments
We here at Water Ionizer Expert answer a lot of questions about alkaline water and water ionizers. By far, the most questions asked are about Kangen Water™, the trademark name for alkaline water made by the Kangen Water™ machine. Many people want to know if Kangen Water™ is better than alkaline water (they’re the same thing), and even more people want to know why it’s so expensive (multi-level-marketing). So to help you learn what you need to know about Kangen Water™, we’ve put together this handy guide to the most frequently asked questions about Kangen Water™.
Can Kangen Water™ cure cancer or other diseases?
Nobody has ever tested Kangen Water™ to see if it could cure cancer or any disease. Some Japanese doctors have theorized that it could, but none of those doctors have backed up their theories with actual clinical research.
The Facts: Kangen Water™ is alkaline water. It’s good for your health, but it’s not medicine. If you suffer from any disease, go see your doctor.
Why is the Kangen machine so expensive?
The Kangen™ machine costs about twice as much as other ionizers, most of which are actually better quality machines. What makes the Kangen machine so expensive is the way it’s sold. Enagic™, the manufacturer of the Kangen™ system, only sells it through Multi-Level marketing (MLM). In the Enagic™ MLM scheme, eight people get paid every time a machine is sold. Enagic pays out a lot more on commissions than the other companies that sell direct spend on marketing. It is the huge amount that Enagic pays on sales commissions that make the Kangen machine so expensive.
Is the Kangen™ machine a medical device?
In Japan, the Kangen™ machine is approved by the Japanese Ministry of Health as a medical device for the treatment of mild digestive upset. It is not approved for use as a medical device by the Ministry of Health for any other purpose, just mild digestive upset.
Is Kangen Water™ microclustered?
There is no such thing as microclustered water. Likewise, there is no such thing as “hexagonal” water. Microclustered water and hexagonal water are made-up sales terms - meaningless to chemists - used by Enagic™ sales people to make their system sound good. Other brands also use these terms because they want to sound like Kangen Water™, but the fact is, there’s no such thing as microclustered or hexagonal water.
What is Strong Kangen Water™? Is it safe to drink?
Strong Kangen Water™ is poisonous, you can’t drink it. Strong Kangen Water™ contains chlorine, just like pool water. You can use it for washing counters or floors, but we don’t recommend that you make strong Kangen Water™ if you have a Kangen™ machine. Making strong Kangen Water™ can leave behind chlorinated residues that can poison your drinking water.
Can I use a Kangen Machine with hard water?
No. If you use a Kangen™ system with hard water, it will void your warranty. The Kangen™ machine doesn’t have the advanced cleaning technologies used in other ionizers, so it can’t handle hard water. If you use a Kangen™ machine with hard water, it can destroy the plates. Repairs will cost you about $800.
Could I make money selling Kangen™ machines?
Not very likely. Less than 1% of people who try multi-level marketing ever make any money at it. Enagic salespeople will tell you that you can get your Kangen™ machine for free by getting friends or family to buy a Kangen™ machine, but do you really want to try to sell a $4,000 appliance to your family or friends?
What is Kangen™ beauty water?
Beauty water is acidic water. All water ionizers make it. Beauty water is another term Enagic™ made up to help sell their machine.
