How do we begin drinking Kangen Water®?
It is most common to begin by setting a low pH level (between pH8 and pH9.0), and gradually increasing the amount of intake. After continuing regular intake for about two weeks, gradually adjust the pH level and amount of intake (between pH9.0-pH9.5) based on your bodily needs and physical condition. The Kangen Water® should be as fresh as possible.

For children or seniors, set the pH level at an even lower level upon starting, and gradually increase it as the body adjusts to the current pH level.

In the case of infants (until about a year old), since breast milk or milk is the only thing they consume, the intestinal movement is generally different from adults, and the use of Kangen Water® is not encouraged until the infant begins to consume more sophisticated foods. In any case, Kangen Water® should not be used to make powdered milk for infants.

pH – The logarithm of the reciprocal of hydrogen-ion concentration in gram atoms per liter. It is used as a measure of the acidity or alkalinity of a solution on a scale of 0-14 (where 7 is neutral).

What are the uses of Kangen Water
Fresh produce: Fruits and Veggies can be cleaned to remove pesticides with Kangen water

Laundry: Put 1 to 2 quarts of strong alkaline water added to the washer makes clothes come out cleaner and brighter than with detergents

Cleaning: hardwood, ceramic tiles, windows, eyeglasses, washing dishes, etc can be cleaned with strong alkaline water

Cooking – Kangen Water can enhance the flavor and texture of food

How should I consume Kangen Water® in order to improve my health?
People need to drink more than 0.7 gallons of water a day in order to live. The large intestine absorbs water supplied by liquids and moisture in foods consumed. To maximize the health benefits gained from drinking Kangen Water®, drink more than 0.5 gallons throughout the day in small portions, without boiling it.

For example, you may want to drink 0.15 gallons or more of Kangen Water® first thing in the morning prior to breakfast. The first drink in the morning replenishes the water lost during the night through breathing and sweating.

What is the proper amount/method of drinking Kangen Water®?
There are no set rules regarding how to drink Kangen Water® or how much to consume, but most people use one of two main methods. The first is for people who are healthy and have a structured lifestyle and steady daily schedule. Such individuals can drink Kangen Water® any way they want.

The second way is for individuals who are trying to benefit from the effects of Kangen Water® to improve medical conditions. In this case, it is best to drink small amounts (1/4 of a cup) every 30-40 minutes. Individuals who drink a cup of freshly made Kangen Water® in the morning, and just before bed are less likely to suffer from the rebound phenomena.

What about differences in the quality of raw water?
The type of original tap water used affects the quality of Kangen Water® and acidic water produced by electrolysis. Although water produced with municipal city water is not affected, the efficiency of electrolysis drops when well water is used since it tends to hold a lot of free carbon dioxide1, as well as in cases where water comprising only a small amount of electrolytic minerals is used.
Conversely, in cases where the water has excess minerals, the taste may be affected, or Kangen Water® produced may be too high in pH level. Since the water pressure of the faucet affects the production of water, it is important to confirm that genuine Kangen Water® is being produced by regularly checking that it is set at the correct pH level, and checking the bubbles. In order to take into account the differences in the quality of the original tap water, please run a check on a daily basis.
How do I use Kangen Water® for beauty care?
Because winter air is extremely cold and dry, skin care is especially important during this time. Without taking care of your skin properly, you will suffer from dry and rough skin. Bodily fluids play an important role in maintaining your body temperature and the health of your skin. Drinking alkaline Kangen Water can help maintain glowing, smooth skin. Since it is important to maintain your skin’s pH level between 5.0 and 6.0, we recommend spraying acidic water1 on your skin at regular intervals throughout the day. During the winter, bathing in acidic water can help preserve the moisture of your skin. We also recommend that you eat foods and fruits that include high levels of vitamin C, A and E. Treating your skin with beauty water will let you enjoy life even more by giving you smooth and youthful skin.

Acidic water – Acidic ionized water produced by electrolysis with a pH between 4.0 and 6.5.

Can Kangen Water® be used to take medication?
Kangen Water® is intended for everyday drinking and cooking rather than for drinking with medication. The Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare gives the following directions:

1.Do not take medication with machine-produced water.
2.Do not drink machine-produced water if you have anaciditas1
3.Seek help from a doctor or pharmacist if you feel an abnormality in the body, or continued intake does not appear to improve symptoms. This is because the effectiveness of medication using Kangen Water® has not yet been tested. The pH level of stomach acids is about 1.8pH, and medication is prescribed in accordance to this pH level in order for it to take effect past the stomach. Therefore, to ensure full effect of the medication, we recommend leaving some time between taking the medication and drinking Kangen Water®
