Enagic®, a company out of Japan, produces the ionizers that produce Kangen water®. The company is very committed to helping improve the health of the community. So much so, that they have Kangen Water stations all over Japan that give away this miracle water. This alkaline water is used in hundreds of hospitals, nursing homes and orphanages. This can not be said by any other producer of water ionizer, and for this reason, I am convinced it is the water ionizer, most Americans have in their home.
Kangen Water, is one of the most recognized names in alkaline water. I had never though or know about alkaline water or its benefits until someone approached me about it. Is is the best alkaline water on earth? Those who drink it believe it to be, and is the only water they drink. There are however, other companies that make water ionizers that are quite good; but non have the long standing reputation of Enagic!
The the makers of this water, has the benefit of being, an established 30 year old company whose major producer of water machines. They are so convinced of the healing properties of this water, that the company has water stations all over Japan, where the water is given away free of charge. I don’t know any company that will stand by its product to this degree.
