Following World War 2, in an attempt to deal with an irradiated water supply, nuclear radiation fallout and a growing health care crisis in their country, Japanese scientists began extensively researching the healing waters of the world. What they discovered is that these waters, found in vastly different parts of the world, all had similar characteristics. They were alkaline, contained high concentrations of active hydrogen (H2, a super antioxidant), and were naturally “structured.“
Japan’s best and brightest scientists and doctors put their heads together and developed a means to recreate this water using a mild electrical current. The early systems took up a whole room and were extremely expensive to produce, so hospitals were the first to start using them. Ionized water became a foundational component of their health care system and Japan initiated an amazing resurgence of the health of their people. Enagic (a combination of “energy” and “magic”) began as the premier manufacturer of these hospital grade systems.
In 1995, Enagic introduced the first household unit and trademarked the water produced from this unit “Kangen” Water. Kangen is an ancient Japanese word meaning “return to origin,” a reference to the naturally occurring waters that Kangen Water shares it’s fundamental properties with. It also references the ability of the water to help restore the natural balance in our bodies, so we can enjoy superior health without the use of synthetic pharmaceuticals.
Kangen Water has been extensively researched since it’s very beginning and is clinically called “Electrolyzed Reduced Water.” Almost all of this research has been done outside of the United States. In Japan, electrolyzed reduced water is such a foundational aspect of their health care system that it’s essentially their Tylenol. If you are sick, drink Kangen Water. If you are healthy, drink Kangen Water. If you have a back ache, headache, diarrhea, cancer, diabetes, whatever! Start drinking Kangen Water and then go from there. Japan is the healthiest country in the world and has the longest life expectancy of any other country. They also have a non-profit healthcare system focused on preventing disease (rather than treating it) and the highest per capita consumption of electrolyzed reduced water in the world!
