Health Alert – Kangen Water

imageKangen water is alkaline ionized water or electrolyzed reduced water and is produced by the water electrolysis process. This process was discovered in the 1950s and all water ionizer machines use this very same process to make “Kangen” or “Alkaline” water.

Many people have claimed their health improved once they started drinking alkaline/ Kangen water, said Trevor Anderson, owner/operator of Aaron Supplies and Services. “Some say it can help slow the aging process, regulate your body’s pH level and prevent chronic diseases like cancer,” he said. “After drinking only a glass or two, people say they can feel the difference it makes as it rehydrates your body.”

A 2012 study found that drinking alkaline water with a pH of 8.8 can help deactivate pepsin, which is the main enzyme that causes acid reflux. Another study suggested that drinking alkaline water may have benefits for people who suffer from high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol. Professional athletes have posted testimonials saying ionized alkaline water boosts their performance by providing better hydration and aiding “energy” and “focus.”

The “alkaline” in alkaline water refers to its pH level. “The pH level is a number that measures how acidic or alkaline a substance is on a scale of 1-14,” Trevor said. “For example, something with a pH of 1 would be acidic and something with a pH of 13 would be very alkaline. Normal drinking water is generally a neutral pH of 7.”

Water that is naturally alkaline occurs when water passes over rocks, like springs, and picks up minerals, which increase its alkaline level. Adding a squeeze of lemon or lime to a glass of water can make your water more alkaline or you can add pH drops. Drawing water through a Kangen, or ionizing machine, does the same thing.

If you are curious about Kangen water and have heard about it’s healthful effects, drop by Aaron Supplies and Services and ask about this product. “Your first fill-up of Kangen water is free,” Trevor said. “Come try it out today.”

    In a healthy person pH levels are finely controlled in different areas of the body. The kidneys maintain blood pH within the narrow range of 7.35 to 7.45. Food entering the stomach is greeted with a strongly acid environment .Your slightly alkaline Kangen water will be neutralized in seconds. Food is treated in the stomach with hydrochloric acid and pepsin until it reaches a pH between 1.5 and 4. Entering the small intestine the food bolus is subjected to alkaline sodium bicarbonate, bile and various enzymes, the acidity is reduced, and by the time food reaches the nutrient absorbing part of the small intestine (the jeunum), the chyme has a slightly alkaline pH of 7 to 8. Nutrient rich blood goes to the liver which carries out at least 500 distinct chemical processes to get rid of toxins, make nutrients and drugs useable by the body, and together with the kidneys, maintain stable homeostatic condtions throughout all the tissues of the body. So folks, as with digestive cleanses and other fads, don’t worry about things the body is already looking after. All clean water is good for you and extra minerals in moderation won’t hurt. If Kangen water makes you feel better, go for it, because the placeob effect is one of the most powerful healing forces we have, and there is no better placebo than an inexpensive one. Ted.

  2. Hmmm, good point! Did I transcribe properly? I will go check my notes!

    I’m not sure how adding a squeeze of lemon or lime juice, which both contain citric ACID, can render water more ALKALINE. However, there is much that I do not understand about this magical water!
