Another time to drink Kangen Water® is when you drink alcoholic beverages or soft drinks. These drinks are so acidic that it takes a great deal of alkaline water to balance acid (32 glasses at a pH of 9.5 to recover from every soft drink). For many years alkaline water has been known as a hangover cure in Japan. When alkaline water is consumed following alcoholic beverages, alkalinity neutralizes excess acids while electrons neutralize free radicals. Alcoholic drinks are acidic and dehydrating. Drinking Kangen Water® is 6 times more hydrating than tap water, prevents the dehydration that manifests as a hangover; thus hangovers are either reduced or eliminated. One way to include alkaline water with other beverages is to make ice cubes from Kangen Water®.
