Medical Kangen Water



How Can Kangen Water® Help Animals?

If Kangen Water® is a healthy antioxidant, which hydrates, provides a pH balance, detoxifies and much more, then can we share this water with our pets?

The answer is a resounding YES!

Water from Enagic’s Kangen Water Machine can improve the quality of life for our favourite pets.  Consider the fact that these animals spend all their time on the floor, the ground and even on chairs where we have used chemicals for cleaning and where they are prone to bacteria, insects and parasites.  Our pets can benefit from drinking Kangen Water, which can increase their immunity to these challenges, and help to detoxify their systems.

As the word travels and more people own Kangen Water machines, then naturally, more household pets will share in the benefits. Now, there are more farmers, veterinarians, horse trainers and breeders who are realizing the benefit of using Kangen Water in the care of animals. Kangen 2.5 Sanitary Water has already been approved in Canada for the treatment and prevention of infection making it perfect for commercial animal use to clean machinery, feed troughs and utensils to reduce the incidence of herd infection.

Cows on a dairy farm in Japan were given alkaline water for a few weeks in the summer months.  As a result, not only did their coats improve dramatically, but milk production increased by 20% when normally cows production decreases in the summer months.



Kangen Water® as Healthy Drinking Water for Pets



When you give your pets some water, do you provide water from a bottle, or do you fill up their bowl straight from the tap?  Either one of these could be harming your beloved furry friends.  The bottled water is most likely very acidic, which creates a breeding ground for disease and discomfort, and the tap water is most likely loaded with chlorine, lye and other potentially harmful chemicals. So the same problems which can affect us from poor water sources can also affect our pets.

Therefore, when our pets are introduced to healthier, alkalized, ionized water, just like with people, pets have had amazing results.  Pets who have been drinking Kangen Water® have enjoyed more energy, brighter eyes, shinier coat, and healthier joints. Kangen Water® can be made in a variety of pH levels.  It is recommended that most pets drink the lowest alkaline pH level of 8.5.  Many pets are finding relief to their problems by drinking Kangen Water®.

With Enagic’s SD501 home machine you can make a variety of different waters straight from the top which can be used for all sorts of different pet needs. Some for drinking, some for cleaning, some for disinfecting, so there are many ways that pets will benefit through the use of the waters with different pH levels.


Other Uses: Benefits of the Clean Water and Acid Water

By spraying your pet before they go outside with 2.5 sanitary water you can help to reduce the number of fleas and ticks that your pet will bring home.  Once home, you can brush their coat with a brush with Clean Water, which is a pH of 7.0.  This will drag out dirt and bacteria, while really moisturizing your pet’s skin.  You can even use 2.5 to spray on furniture and pet bedding to kill fleas and other pathogens.

Kangen’s Clean (Neutral) Water is the perfect choice for your pet because it is right in the range of a pet’s skin pH, which is generally 6.2 to 7.4.  Beauty Water (Acidic Water) is much too acidic for a pet’s skin and can create more dryness.  But by spraying and shampooing your pet with Clean Neutral Water at 7.0, your pet’s coat can really benefit.  By keeping your pet’s coat clean and clear from chemicals typical in pet shampoos, skin dryness can be eliminated completely.

Also be sure not to use your shampoo on your pet because it will be much too acidic for your pet’s skin.  Choose a shampoo that is slightly alkaline which when combined with the Clean Water, will provide intensive moisture for your pet’s skin and coat.

By adding Kangen Water to your pet’s life, you can minimize trips to the vet’s office and give your pet a long and healthy life.  In fact, many holistic vet offices are installing a Kangen Water machine to provide the perfect water for pets staying over as well as grooming and even for the antibacterial application instead of antibiotic ointment.

Not only is Kangen Water® important for us humans, but it is equally important to our animals. In many cases, our pets are exposed to the same type of toxins, poor diet and other factors that contribute to their overall bad health.

Just like people, our animal companions need fresh, clean, healthy water in order to stay at the top of their game.  Did you know that pets are developing debilitating and even fatal diseases and issues at an alarming rate?  These include diabetes, arthritis and weight problems, just to name a few.  Take a look at these amazing true stories!



Some Testimonials from Pet Owners

“My 5 year old Golden Retriever named “Bow” has been a beach lover all his life.  We were at the Dog Beach playing fetch with his favourite ball when he snapped his left ACL.  We hobbled back to the car, straight to his Vet. We were told he would need surgery to replace the ruptured ligament.  A TPLO surgery was performed. He recovered, but a limp soon followed.  We got the 2 paws up to return to full activity.  Back to Dog Beach we went.  Within 5 minutes, “Snap” the other knee went. He had the surgery on his injured leg & again recovered.  However, this time I was able to give him Kangen 8.5. He has no limp on either leg, jumps up, runs and plays hard. He has returned to Dog Beach with tail wagging, lip smackin, bright-eyed excitement. Not a limp, not a whimper. I believe we owe his fast recovery to Kangen 8.5.  And by the way, he had some strong acidic urine following the surgery, which burned the backyard grass.  Now my grass is green and Bow is doing fantastic!  Thank you Enagic for Bow’s health.  He won’t drink anything but Kangen Water!!! “ “Bow” Golden Retriever – Judy S. Owner


“Our dog Charlie, a Pit-bull / Pointer mix, is 10 years old. Over the past few years, he has developed a mild case of hip dysplasia, which would make him limp when he walked and have to steady himself in order to sit.  He has also had severe inflammation on the inside of his ears that we could never get under control.  We also noticed that the “pep” in his step was starting to fade as he got older.  We started giving him the 9.5 pH water to drink and used the 2.5 pH water for his ears.  He started showing amazing signs of improvement after only a few days.  Now, his hip is no longer a problem.  He is bounding around like a puppy again and sitting takes him no effort at all.  His ears look great!  He is in better shape now then he has ever been!!  And the only change we made was the water we gave to Charlie.  Thanks, Enagic, the Kangen Water gave us our puppy back!“ Charlie” Pitbull / Pointer – Gerald K. Owner


“Our Cocker Spaniel’s are thriving !!!! They have both been on Kangen 8.5 for several months and their health has noticeably improved.  Coco’s Mom Patty makes a broth from the Kangen Water and Coco loves it.  One day Coco’s Mom Patty ran out of the Kangen and she purchased some Arrowhead and Coco turned up her nose and wouldn’t drink it.  Coco has been Patty’s cocker spaniel for 12 years and every three weeks has had her anal glands drained…this past time she went 6 weeks and brought Coco in for her draining and the glands were empty. This water has detoxified Coco’s system and is helping her fight a debilitating leg problem.  Penny, on the other hand, is not as sophisticated as Coco in her tastes.  However, I have had Penny on Kangen water for several months and I make her Coco’s Canine Cuisine with only the 8.5 Kangen and cook her chicken in the 8.5 Kangen Water and it has been so tasty for her, that she used eat like a bird and now eats like a dog!!!  Her anal glands were impacted two months ago and I was scheduled to get them drained every three weeks and we went in and the Vet. Tech. said her anal glands were empty as well…we are AMAZED at the benefits of this Kangen Water for our cocker’s!!!“   “Coco” & “Penny” Cocker Spaniels – Patty & Janet Owners

Dr. Hiromi Shinya

Chief of Surgical Endoscopy, Beth Israel Medical Center, Clinical Professor of Surgery, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Vice-chairman of the Japanese Medical Association in the United States.

Dr. Shinya’s revolutionary “Shinya Method” has become widely used in colonoscopy procedures worldwide. “It is widely recognized in the medical profession that a healthy and clean colon is one of the most important precursors to good health and that the great majority of body ailments and diseases originate in an acidic and dirty colon. Water is essential for your health. Drinking “good water;” especially hard water which has much calcium and magnesium keeps your body at an optimal alkaline PH.”

“Kangen Water is alkaline rich water (ph 8-9), and is considered the very best drinking water because of its incomparable powers of hydration, detoxification, and anti-oxidation.”

From the ‘Microbe Factor’ published 2010

“Thirty years ago in Japan we were worried about the amount of acid rain we were getting in our water.  A group of scientists, engineers, and doctors including myself got together to talk about what we could do to save our water.  Out of that meeting, a technique was developed to process water in order to make it more alkaline. Others went on to build a machine that does this, for people to put in their homes.

I am a doctor and that is my work, so I didn’t get involved in any of the business, but since that time I have been drinking this alkaline water we call Kangen water. The technology for producing the Kangen water has gotten much more sophisticated, of course, and Kangen water machines have become available in the United States.

I have a Kangen water machine in my New York medical office, and this is the water I drink and give to my patients. In addition to filtering out pollutants this Kangen water has strong reduction power and helps keep the body at an optimal alkaline pH.”


Anthony Robbins

Author of Awaken The Giant Within

“Alkalize your body and live a healthier, more energized, and ultimately more fulfilling life.  Our acid-alkaline balance is a baseline determinant of our physical health. When you break your old eating patterns, you will find yourself getting back to the real you, filled with the vitality and energy that you desire and deserve.”

Kangen Water System

How Does The Kangen Water Machine System Work?

The diagram illustrates the basic functions of a Kangen Water Ionizer.

Tap water enters the Water Purifying Filter, an antibacterial active carbon filter, which is able to remove lead, chlorine, rust, and muddiness while at the same time preserving the important minerals in the source water, such as Calcium, Potassium and Magnesium.

The example shows 7 vertical plates, which is the number of platinum plates utilized by the Enagic flagship model, LeveLuk Sd501.

Water flows through a multi-electrode plate mechanism which ionizes and splits the water into alkaline and acidic waters.  (Both alkaline and acidic water have unique and beneficial uses).

(For Strong Acidic & Strong Alkaline Water only) Water flows through an electrolysis enhancer to aid in the production of both strong acidic and highly alkaline water, which is not for drinking.


Solid Versus Mesh Plates 

The Kangen Water(R) machines produce the highest quality ionized, alkaline water.  Enagic’s patented, solid dipped, platinum plates are dipped in medical grade platinum (at over $1,500 per oz) and not sprayed like many of the cheap imitations.

Enagic is the only manufacturer which uses 7 solid medical-grade, platinum coated titanium electrolysis plates with 490 sq. in. surface area, and which uses 230 watts in order to provide enough power to perform a sufficient quantity of electrolysis with a reasonable flow rate.

Ionization quality is a function of how much electricity comes in contact with how much water, so these numbers are especially revealing. The Enagic LeveLuk SD501 produces “Kangen Water” with a consistent strong negative ORP characteristic.

Ionizing Plate Size With Largest Surface Area

The Kangen Water Machine ionizing plates have the largest surface area of any other machine on the market. They are four times larger than the plates of a leading competitor. The size of the plates is a key factor in the process of alkalizing or acidifying water.

It is an irrefutable law of electricity, chemistry and physics that the higher the electrical voltage a plate can sustain and the longer period of time water stays in contact with this voltage, the more complete the ionization process.

With more surface space and the highest quality of materials, Enagic sets the highest standard for producing ionized water.


Quality Of Construction In The Enagic Factory

Each Kangen Water Machine is assembled individually by one trained technician and goes through a 22-point inspection by 5 different inspectors.

Since Enagic is an OEM, or Original Equipment Manufacturer, the company performs all the steps in the process, from stamping their own proprietary titanium plates, producing the electrode plates and all other parts, to expert assembly of the electrolysis chambers, testing, inspection and the final packaging—all with no outsourcing.  This procedure guarantees a high-quality product which is built to last.


Reliable Warranty, Maintenance, And Life Expectancy Of The Kangen Water Machine

The Enagic LeveLuk SD501 comes with a 5-year FULL Warranty (and now an optional extended two-year warranty is also offered).  Enagic’s warranty covers everything including all parts and labour in any condition, whereas some water ionizers have exclusions based on factors such as the kind of water you put in their machine.

Each removable filter from the ionizer machine is good for about 3000 gallons. The replacement costs, for the filter, is approximately $100. The built-in microprocessor indicates when the filter should be replaced.

Every few months, depending upon usage, the removable filter should be taken out and a cleaning cartridge placed inside the machine.  This cleaning cartridge is used to clean the mineral deposits off the engine (the electrolysis plates.)

With the proper maintenance, the life expectancy of the Enagic Kangen Water Machine is approximately 15 years.



The manufacturing plant is ISO 9001 & ISO 14001 certificated.
