Description: ION Life®, is India’s most trusted & reputed company for 'kangen water machine' because we specialize in providing in-home, alkaline water ionization technologies and also arrange our "Beyond Kangen water ionizer" for a free demo where feasible. This webpage attempts to clarify some incorrect claims (myths) being promoted by over-priced Kangen machine MLM marketeers to enable consumers to truly compare the advantages of Ion Life water ionizer versus Kangen water ionizer.

Kangen water ionizer machine Claim: #1 "Kangen water" is a special water made on machines of a certain Japanese MLM brand only.
point 1

Answer: In Japan, "Kangen waters" are certain naturally occurring mildly alkaline spring waters used traditionally to treat certain stomach ailments like acid reflux for over 500 years.

In Chemistry, alkalis are known as "reduced" compounds and the Japanese chemistry term for reduction process is "Kangen". So the Japanese chemical description for "reduced" water, "alkaline" water, "deoxidised" water etc. is "Kangen" water. The MLM brand is suppressing this well known fact and misleading consumers that in Japanese language "Kangen" means "return to origin", whereas the other meaning of "Kangen" is actually a Japanese accounting term meaning to "return the original (principal) amount".

As detailed later in this page, the rapid production of so-called "Kangen water" by the MLM brand machine is achieved by their using chemical adulterants and the produced liquid (which does not qualify to be drinkable water as prescribed under law both in India and also Japan) is poisonous and may be harmful if ingested in the quantities they suggest without a doctor's prescription.

Kangen water ionizer machines Claim: #2 Branded "Kangen water" is fit for drinking and should be consumed in large quantity to prevent or cure diabetes, cancer, obesity etc.
point 2

Answer: The "Kangen water" device manufacturer claims (albeit incorrectly) that "Kangen Water® pH 8.5-9.5 This type of water is perfect for drinking..".

Firstly, as any qualified chemist will tell you, any liquid with ph between 8.5-9.5 does not qualify to be described as "water".

Secondly, as the laws of both India and Japan prescribe, only water of pH between 6.5-8.5 (pH 5.6 to 8.6 in Japan) without relaxation qualifies to be drinkable water. Thus the branded MLM Kangen water which is outside pH 6.5-8.5 range must ordinarily be presumed to be unsafe and harmful for consumption and unfit for drinking.

Thirdly, because the MLM marketers know very well that the high pH liquid output of their machine is illegal for drinking water in India (as well as Japan), they have now begin claiming their imported machines are "medical devices" approved by the Japanese Government. Whereas the said approvals are strictly given on the specific conditions like (i) usage will be on a doctor's prescription, (ii) no other medications will be taken simultaneously, (iii) patients with underlying medical conditions like 'Anaciditas' etc. should never be given such high pH waters.

Accordingly, as a responsible water ionizer machine provider, we urge Indian consumers to seek qualified medical advice before consuming any liquids with excessively high pH being promoted as "cure-alls" by unscrupuous MLM marketers of so-called "Kangen water" machines.

Kangen water machine Claim: #3 Branded "Kangen water" is micro-clustered and thereby the smaller molecules being more easily absorbed promote better hydration.
Claim: #4 "Kangen" water ionizer machine, being patented, is better than other branded water ionizer machines
point 3

Answer: #3 There is none, or hardly any, verifiable scientific evidence for the existence of the alleged micro-clusters of water.

Firstly, a detailed and reputed Japanese scientific study (titled as "Studies on the Physicochemical Properties and Existence of Water Products (as Drinks) Advertised as Having Smaller Cluster Sizes of H2O Molecules than Those of Regular Water" link) has clearly debunked the existence of these alleged micro-clusters in drinking water H2O along with the claimed benefits of better hydration.

Secondly, the Kangen machine brand website never itself claims that their water ionizer machines produce "micro-clustered" water.

Thirdly, it is the unscrupulous MLM marketers and independent sales agents (who are under stress to achieve sales targets and increase their commission ranking) of the devices who promote the fantastic myths of micro-clustered waters and hexagonal structured waters to sell their machines to gullible consumers with simple chemistry parlour trick demonstrations - like tea "making" without boiling / color change to wash cherry tomatoes etc.

Whereas, the claimed beneficial aspects of alkaline drinking water are attributed to the directly measurable properties like ORP and free dissolved molecular Hydrogen concentration which are produced by superior quality 3rd generation ionisers like ION Life devices. In actuality, it is the free molecular hydrogen H2, which being the smallest molecule possible, is able to permeate everywhere in the body and create wellness.

point 4

Answer: #4 Considering that the phenomenon and process for water ionisation by electrolysis has been known and researched for over 300 years, it can be safely said that the basic process cannot be patented today and all the claimed patents are meaningless and obtained solely for marketing purposes to deceive gullible consumers.

A typical patent used to promote the MLM brand is their "patent" obtained by the inventor of MLM for their "distributor management plan" or the "8-point business plan" or MLM marketing scheme with "8 point Commission structure paying 8 points within 8 levels" etc. link, link which causes their Kangen machines to be vastly over-priced due to patented front-loading MLM commission structures.

Kangen Alkaline Water Ionizer Machine

The history of alkaline water as a healing liquid dates back to at least the 1500's. Later in around the 1960's, alkaline reduced water (called locally as "Kangen" water there) being made on crude ionizers started being used by various Japanese doctors to treat certain minor ailments such as gastric and bowel distress and showed promising results. It is noteworthy that Japan has a high prevalance of gastric disorders due to the culture of eating raw and unwashed foods. Accordingly kangen water machines for producing alkaline water (high PH) water was approved by Japan's Health directorate for limited medical use to treat those specific conditions. NB: Alkaline water (described by pH) is not to be confused with "ionized water" or "electrolysed water".

The Japanese vendors claim that Kangen water is mineral rich alkaline "water" which is suitable for drinking. It is reduced by the process of electrolysis. As a result of this process, the user gets access to different streams of water, each having a unique pH of its own. The alkaline water stream is clamed to be fit for drinking and can be used to replenish and hydrate the body. The acidic water on the other hand is not suitable for human consumption and can be used as a disinfectant and for cleaning purposes. The Kangen water ionizer vendors claim the Kengen water that you receive from their Kangan water ionizer machine will not only be free of harmful substances like lead and chorine, but it will also contain various revitalizing minerals.

Thereafter in the perioiod around 2003=-2006 in Japan there were a series of incdents of contaminated drinking water supplies, and a cottage industry of crude electric water ionizer machine cum filters sprang up to fill the void. In 2005 the Japanese govt implemented strict legislation for drinking water and consequently all thosse Japanese water ionizer companies began mass marketing of their machines to less developed countries without stringent drinking water standards. Fortunately, India has long had drinking water standards which exceed those of Japan in stringency, so it can be safely said that the Japanese water ionizers are not ordinarily needed in India.

Ever since its inception, alkaline water ionizers have undergone a revolution. Compared to the older models of kangen water machine, we now have newer and improved versions of the same. The newer versions of alkaline water ionizer machines like ION-Life Model LC-13 use a switch mode power supply which increases the efficiency of the machine. Additionally, with the advent of modern day safe and medical grade raw materials, plastics and micro-controllers, we bring to you the absolute cutting edge technology to ensure that your health thrives!

Modern alkaline water ionizer machines have 11 or 13 Titanium plates coated with 99.99% platinum to last a lifetime. The plates, are preferably "all solid" construction powered by rugged SMPs of at least 450 W to maintain high negative ORP values at prescribe pH levels at full flow rates.

Unfortunately the old generation Kangen water machines had only 3 or 5 plates, of a much smaller size, and used obsolete transformer technologies with insufficient power to deliver the highest ORPs and pH levels needed for healthy water. These inadequate machines, however, were aggressively sold through MLM type marketing schemes on the basis of all kinds of scientifically absurd and far-fetched medicinal claims which lack any rational basis. The victims of these Kangen water MLM scams who have been grossly over-charged for underpowered devices often formed cult-like groups to lure other victims into their MLM circle of lies, myth and misrepresentations about the benefits of the device. Unable to compete with well designed machines like ION Life's, the Kangen machine MLM marketers slyly introduced sodium salts into the ionization chambers to boost the output which created poisonous by-products of electrolysis dangerous for human consumption.

For tecnically savvy consumers, it would be instructive to compare ionizer machines on the basis of their "ionization capacities" in lit/min instead of their "filtration capacity" (which is a meaningless number in context of an ionizer's main technical function)

It is sincerely hoped that consumers will be cautious while evaluating the claims made on behalf of Kangen water machine MLM marketeers and not fall prey to misrepresentations. It is asserted that whereas ION Life alkaline water ionizer machines can produce any kind of water made on so-called "Kangen Water" machines without addition of additives, the Kangen MLM marketeers cannot produce the output of modern 3rd generation ionizer machines without reducing their flow speeds or by introducing harmful additives.
