    Green Laundering
    Chemical Cleaning
    What ingredients are you using to clean your clothes? If you buy traditional laundry detergent,
    you may be introducing chemicals to your favorite fabrics. In fact, your laundry detergent may be
    the most poisonous product in your home!1

    What ingredients can be found in typical laundry detergent?

   Water
   Phosphates
   Nonylphenol polyethoxylate (a surfactant that breaks down into an estrogen mimic) 2
   Chlorine Bleach
   Lye
   Ammonia
   Phenols
   Fillers
   Other toxic chemicals


    To make matters worse, the University of Washington found that top-selling
    laundry products contain at least one chemical regulated as toxic by the federal
    government, but they are not included on the label at all.

    And while other governments require products like laundry detergents to list fragrance
    ingredients on the label, the US FDA does not. As many as 26 synthetic fragrant chemicals can
    legally be included in your detergent without your knowledge.3 These fragrance chemicals have
    been known to irritate skin and even exacerbate conditions such as asthma, but you are NOT
    required to know about their presence.

    Similar to beauty products, the harm of these chemicals do not stop when you wash them down
    the drain. Materials such as phosphates and synthetic chemicals can wash up in our lakes, rivers,
    and oceans, polluting our water and damaging the aquatic animals. Clearly, store-bought laundry
    detergent is not the greenest or healthiest choice for your family. So what can you use to keep
    your family's clothes clean and green?


    The Enagic® Solution
    As a member of the Enagic® Lifestyle, you have access to healthy waters that can keep your
    home safely clean! Enagic® Kangen Water® is an excellent choice for keeping your favorite
    clothes laundered and well-kept. You can make your own laundry detergent with Kangen
    Water®, and have peace of mind that the clothes your family wears do not contain chemicals that
    your skin may absorb. Save money on expensive store-bought laundry detergent by using your
    own Enagic® water ionizing machine to generate healthy water, and choose between two of our
    favorite Kangen Water® Laundry Detergent Recipes.


    Stubborn Stains
    For tough and set-in stains, don't reach for more chemicals. With a touch of a button on your
    Enagic® machine, you can make a powerful stain remover with Strong Kangen Water that really
    works! Strong Kangen Water is gentle to the environment, but hard on stains. Whether you need
help with coffee stains, oil stains, soy sauce, grease, or tough dirt stains, Strong Kangen Water is
what you've been looking for - without the unnecessary chemicals and additives.




Green Cleaning
It is important to maintain a clean home to keep your family in excellent health. Unfortunately,
many cleaning products on the market today add toxic, unnatural ingredients that are harmful to
the environment and may even have negative effects on your body1. Even some products boasting
"all-natural" ingredients contain harmful chemicals that are unregulated by the government. 2

If you're seeking green safe cleaning products for the general well-being of your family and the
environment, your Enagic® water ionizing machine is the perfect place to start! You can make
your own household cleaning products that will not pose risks to your family. Discover the
Enagic® advantage, and enjoy a chemical-free home.


Bathroom
Although second in line for the germiest room in your home, the bathroom is certainly a large
breeding ground for bacteria. Your bathtub is actually the dirtiest place in your bathroom,
according to recent studies3. In fact, the most recent study found staphylococcus bacteria, which
causes skin infections, in 26% of bathtubs tested. The other pathogen-friendly areas to watch out
for are bath towels, toothbrushes, countertops, the toilet, and the bathroom sink. Here are a few
pointers to keep your bathroom squeaky clean, safely:

1. Scrub the Tub
Wash your bathtub once or twice a week with Strong Kangen Water Cleaner to fight tough dirt
and stains, and then Strong Acidic Water to disinfect and stop germs from spreading. Keep a
spray bottle of each in your bathroom so cleaning is a breeze.

2. Clean Your Toothbrush
Besides switching your toothbrush out every 3 months, you should routinely disinfect it with
Strong Acidic Water. Once a week, spray your toothbrush with Strong Acidic Water and then
rinse with Kangen Water®.

3. Designate the Towels
To keep family members from sharing bacteria and germs, designate a different color to each
person. Also, wash towels once a week with Kangen Laundry Detergent.

4. Keep the Toilet Clean (Without Bleach)
Thanks to Enagic®, you do not have to use bleach to keep your toilet sparkling clean! With your
Strong Acidic Water spray bottle, attack toilet bowl germs 2 or 3 times a week. For stubborn
toilet bowl stains, use full-strength Strong Kangen Water.

5. Clean with Confidence
Clean all over surfaces with Strong Kangen Water Cleaner, including doorknobs, cabinet
hardware, sinks and faucets, floors, etc. Feel confident knowing that you're keeping your home
safe, spotless, and green.


Kitchen
The kitchen is a petri dish of germs, with more bacteria than even your bathroom!4 With so many
pathogens lurking about your countertops, cutting boards, sponges, and dish rags, you need
Enagic® to help you maintain a safe, clean kitchen. Here are some helpful tips to ward off the
germs in the kitchen:

1. Clean Your Sponges
Wash your sponges regularly in the dishwasher with Homemade Dishwater Detergent, and
microwave them for two minutes while still damp. This can help remove germs that easily spread
from your sponge to your countertops and dishes.

2. Wash Your Kitchen Towels with Kangen Laundry Detergent
Just like your moist sponge is a breeding ground for germs, your damp dishrags may be dirty
culprits in spreading microscopic germs around your kitchen and hands. Make sure to wash your
kitchen towels in Kangen Laundry Detergent.

3. Keep It Clean
Use the All-Purpose Strong Kangen Water Cleaner to wipe away germs from cutting boards, your
sink and faucet, garbage cans, countertops, cabinet hardware, knives, floors with messy spills,
etc. Strong Kangen Water is a powerful all-purpose cleaner that fights grime, grease, stains,
germs, and dirt all over your house. You should then spray these items with Strong Acidic Water,
which acts as a disinfectant. Keep two spray bottles of these extra strength cleaners close by, and
keep germs at bay!

4. Wash Your Hands
Before and after handling food, be sure to wash your hands. The Enagic® Hand Sanitizer will
help keep your hands disinfected with Strong Acidic Water as you prepare healthy foods and
cook delicious meals for your family.


Window Cleaning
When you open the window shades to let the natural sunlight shine through your home, the last
sights you want to see are dust build-up or streaks left behind from a window cleaner. How can
you achieve crystal clear windows without the use of chemicals? Strong Kangen Water, along
with a few other basic and natural household ingredients! For the Strong Kangen Water Window
Cleaner recipe, click here.


The Rest of Your Home and Beyond
(car, garage, office space, etc)
Your Enagic® water machine will produce as much water as you need to fight germs before they
become a health risk. All you need is a little preparation to make sure your spray bottles are well
labeled and situated, and you'll be surprised at how easy it is to maintain a green and clean
household!

There's no reason to use chemicals to clean when you have an Enagic® machine! Appreciate your
clean and safe home, and enjoy the greener life.




Greener Dishes
The Great Dish Debate
There is vigorous debate about whether hand-washing is more energy efficient than eco-friendly
dishwashers. We've done a little research, and were surprised to learn that, according to scientific
research done at the University of Bonn in Germany1, dishwashers are actually more
environmentally friendly than conservatively hand washing your dirty dishes.

Here are some tips to get the most out of your dishwasher:
 1. Make sure you're using an Energy Star dishwasher. Older machines used about 10 gallons
    of water, but the energy efficient models only use about 4 gallons.

 2. Don't rinse the dishes before loading them. Newer models are all capable of cleaning un-
    rinsed dishes, and you'll conserve a lot of water.

 3. Only run the dishwasher when it is completely full.

 4. Set the dishwasher to the lowest setting possible.

 5. Run the dishwasher at night when there is a surplus of energy in the house.

 6. Avoid the Heated Dry setting. You can open the door and let the dishes air-dry, which will
    save a lot of energy.

The Detergent Dilemma
To maintain a green kitchen, you may want to inspect your dishwasher detergent label. Most
dishwasher detergents include phosphates that have been known to pollute water sources and
increase algae growth to the detriment of aquatic wildlife. Traditional detergents may also be
comprised of chlorine, synthetic fragrances, dyes, petrochemicals, and so on.

But there's still hope! You can make your own dishwasher detergent free of chemicals, dyes, and
other unwanted ingredients. See our Green Home Recipes for the Homemade Dishwater
Detergent.

Washing with Strong Kangen Water
If you do not own a dishwasher, or just prefer to wash your dishes the old fashioned way, Strong
Kangen Water can help! Strong Kangen Water is a powerful cleaner, with extra strength and
absorption qualities to help fight tough grease and grime from your dishes.

Strong Kangen Water can help you save on your water bill. It takes a quarter of the usual amount
of water to rinse off Strong Kangen Water, as opposed to chemical detergents. For a trustworthy
recipe for Kangen Water® Dish Soap.

Think Kangen!
Gardening with Kangen Water®
Gardening with Enagic® Water is a great way to keep your plants and flowers healthy, enlivened,
and lush. Just like your body needs clean, alkaline, and chlorine-free Kangen Water® for
improved health, your plants also need the healthy water for optimal growth and nourishment.
The water from your Enagic® machine can even revitalize weak plants, making them stronger
and more vibrant than ever before! Enagic® Water stimulates germination and improves seedling
development, leaving your plants in peak condition without the use of harmful chemicals.

Nourishing vegetables and flowers with Enagic® Water in your own garden means you can save
money at the grocery store and florist, reduce (or eliminate) the amount of pesticides in your
home, and even cut down on all the wasted resources associated with transporting plants, flowers,
and produce across the globe. Lowering your carbon footprint has never been so rewarding! You
can even use your fragrant flowers to make your own perfume.

Get back to basics, and discover how your Enagic® machine can help you grow a
green, beautiful garden.

You first need to decide which Enagic® Water is right for your plants. Plants have different
preferences in pH for water and soil, and the water you use will have a big impact on your plant
health and growth2. Here is a general list of the plants that thrive in slightly alkaline, neutral, and
slightly acidic water and soil:

Plants that Prefer Slightly Alkaline Kangen Water®
(pH 8.5 - 9.5)
Most of these plants show optimal growth in the 7.5 - 8.5, so you can experiment between
Kangen Water® 8.5 and Neutral Water (pH 7.0) to find the best results. The pH of your soil will
have a big impact on which water you should use. These plants include: asparagus, beets,
cabbage, cauliflower, celery, carrots, mushrooms, parsley, geraniums, irises, phlox, vinca,
hydrangeas (for pink blooms), and lilacs. Hydrangeas are a rare plant, as the pH of your water
will change the color of the blooms.
Plants that Prefer Slightly Acidic Water
(pH 4.0 - 6.0)
Some plants prefer slightly acidic water and soil. Set your SD501 to pH 5.0 for the following
vegetables and plants: rhododendrons, begonias, azaleas, heathers, hydrangeas (for blue blooms),
peanuts, cucumbers, potatoes, dill, leeks, chili peppers, eggplant, garlic, chives, artichoke,
tomatoes, and most berries. Roses grow most vibrantly with pH 5.5 - 6.5, so you may want to
experiment with Slightly Acidic Water (set at pH 6.0) and Neutral Water (pH 7.0) to see which
one yields the healthiest roses with your particular soil. Remember to always take into
consideration the pH of your soil when you choose which Enagic® Water to use on your plants.

Plants that Prefer Neutral Water
(pH 7.0)
Many vegetables and plants thrive in a neutral pH. These plants include spinach, parsnips,
dahlias, chrysanthemums, brussels sprouts, sweet peas, broccoli, asparagus, beans, avocado,
cantaloupe, kiwi, mint, lettuce, onions, yams, radishes, squash, bell peppers, and tulips. Use
Enagic® Neutral Water to keep these plants hydrated and healthy.

No matter which Enagic® Water you choose for your garden, you can have peace of mind that
your plants will be healthy with this clean, high-quality water. And think of how delicious your
fruits and vegetables will taste after they've been watered with your Enagic® machine instead of
chlorinated tap water!

Here are some other helpful tips for a successful Kangen Garden:
 1. Always plan ahead. Sketch your garden with pen and paper so you have a clear plan of
     where everything will be planted. Smaller plants should be in the front and bigger plants in
     the back.

 2. Water your plants in the morning or late evening, when it is not too hot outside. In the
     winter, water your plants when the temperature is above 40 degrees with no snow cover.

 3. Make sure to read the planting instructions of each of your plants so you know exactly how
     much Enagic® Water they need.

 4. Plants need additional watering in windy climates, as the wind can dry out the earth and
     plants quickly.

 5. If your soil could use a boost, use your own Kangen Compost. This homemade organic
     fertilizer will bring new life your soil and plants!
Gardening is a fun, sustainable, and environmentally responsible decision that will help sustain
your family's overall wellness. You and your children have much to gain from greening your
home with a garden. Find out how you can improve your life and surroundings by growing your
very own Enagic® Garden!




Gardening for your Children
Gardening Children are Healthy Children
There are considerable reasons to encourage your children to dig their hands in the garden and
connect with Nature. Researchers have spent years studying the fruitful benefits gardening can
have for our youngest green-living enthusiasts. Whether they are designing, planting, harvesting,
or enjoying the delicious rewards of their hard work, gardening will teach your children lessons
that cannot be easily duplicated in the confinement of a classroom.

In a 2009 study by the Children, Youth and Environments Center for Research and Design
(University of Colorado), researchers found that gardening can have a positive influence on
children's physical, emotional, intellectual, and social well-being. Here are some of the findings
from that study1:

 1. Gardening "grows a community!" Children who garden show heightened self-
     understanding, maturity, responsibility, interpersonal skills, and the ability to work well as a
     member of a team.

 2. Children who grow their own food in a garden eat more fresh produce and have less of a
     risk of developing obesity. Also, school gardening activities and programs usually teach
     lessons on nutrition, which leads to a greater understanding of healthy eating habits.

 3. Gardening can make a positive impact on the bond between children and their parents and
     other adults.
4. Working in a garden cultivates academic achievement. Children who garden score
    "significantly higher" on science achievement tests, compared to students who have no
    gardening experience.

5. Children who have learned how to garden have a more "pro-environmental attitude", and
    often show an understanding of ecology and a social responsibility to take care of the
    environment.

6. According to this study, as well as extensive research conducted by the American
    Horticultural Therapy Association2, working in a garden is not only relaxing, but it can
    actually promote a healthy mind. Horticultural therapy and therapeutic gardening is used in
    public and private schools across the country to help children with special needs.

7. Gardening crosses cultural lines! Multi-cultural school garden programs show that
    immigrant children who garden are much more likely to feel a sense of belonging, form
    connections to the local community, and share their heritages than immigrant children who
    do not participate in gardening activities.

No matter how old your children are, you can make a big difference by enlisting them to help you
in the family garden. It is never too early to teach them to stay healthy, balanced, and
environmentally responsible just by growing your own fruits and vegetables.

Make sure you show your children how to keep the garden (and their own bodies) hydrated with
clean, delicious Kangen Water®!

Your Enagic® water ionizing machine can help promote healthy plants and healthy hydration for
everyone in your household. Learn more about the benefits of Gardening with Kangen Water® .




Composting with Kangen Water®
Give Back to Nature: Compost
Composting is easy, natural, environmentally responsible, and it actually has a pleasant earth
aroma when aerated properly. If you have never tried it before, you might be surprised at how
simple and enjoyable composting can be. Most importantly, composting drastically reduces waste
in our landfills. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reports that
72% of the municipal waste in landfills is organic and could be composted (wood,
textiles/leather, yard debris, food scraps, and paper)1.

The benefits of composting go beyond reducing waste and decreasing hazardous methane gas
produced by landfills1. Composting is quite functional as a soil amendment and can improve the
physical, chemical, and biological properties of soil, which creates healthier and stronger plants
in your garden1. Compost contains the three main plant nutrients (nitrogen, phosphorus, and
potassium), as well as healthy bacteria, yeast, and fungi that will help keep your plants strong and
even prevent diseases. Recycling organic materials in a compost pile will help keep your plants
and soil healthy, so you can take pride in your eco-conscious lifestyle that promotes a greener
Earth.


How To Get Started
You can choose to compost indoors or outdoors, and you'll find many different designs and styles
of compost bins in most garden supply stores. Of course, you can always build your own compost
pile from items in your garage (chicken wire, scrap lumber, cement blocks, etc). Do a little
research to find out the best solution for your home and lifestyle. Here are the basic guidelines for
starting your own compost pile2:

 1. A general rule is to use 3 parts "Brown" to every 1 part "Green"

         1. • Greens: grass clippings, leaves, weeds, kitchen scraps (fruits, vegetables, coffee
             grounds, tea leaves, etc)

         2. • Browns: dried grass or leaves, cornstalks, straw, wood shavings (with moderation)

 2. Do not compost: meat, bones, dairy products, ashes, paper

 3. Keep your compost pile aerated, turning frequently

 4. Water, water, water! 50-60% of your compost pile should be water. This is a difficult
     amount to guess, so a good rule of thumb is to make sure your compost feels moist but not
     soggy - like a wrung out sponge.

Enagic® Water is an outstanding ingredient for compost. Why add tap or bottle water to your
fresh compost, which may contain traces of chlorine, lead, and other contaminants? Enagic®
Water is clean, filtered, and easily accessible.
To know which water to use for your compost, you should first test the pH of your soil. The ideal
soil pH is about 6.3 - 6.8, which is very slightly acidic. If you find that your soil is already too
acidic, you should use Kangen Water® to create a healthier balance. If your soil is too alkaline,
try Slightly Acidic Water in your compost. Finally, you can use clean Neutral Water in your
compost pile if your soil is already balanced perfectly.

Just like Enagic® Water is the healthy choice for you and your plants, it is also the ideal water for
your compost pile. Your plants and flowers will thrive beautifully after they've been nourished
with Kangen Compost!


Vermicompost
Don't let lack of yard space keep you from composting! You can compost in your own home with
vermicompost, which uses red wiggler worms to do the hard work for you. These helpful worms
can be purchased at a bait shop or online worm farm. An indoor compost is convenient because
you can store it in a lid-tight container in your pantry, allowing for quick, hassle-free food scrap
dumping while you are cooking or cleaning up after a meal.

You will need scraps of shredded paper, red wiggle worms, garden soil, Enagic® Water (Slightly
Acidic Water, Neutral Water, or Kangen Water®), and food scraps to get your vermicompost
started. Red wiggler worms enjoy fruits, vegetables, egg shells, tea bags, coffee grounds, and
grains. Vermicomposting takes a little longer than a backyard compost - about 4 to 6 months.
Meanwhile, outdoor composting only takes about 3 to 4 weeks to harvest a good batch. But
vermicomposting is a great solution if you are limited to a small yard or don't enjoy trips to the
outdoor compost in chilly weather.


Using Your Compost
Finished compost is 100% organic fertilizer, and it is exactly what your garden and indoor plants
need to stay healthy (along with Kangen Water® of course)! Your Kangen Compost will help
improve the quality, fertility, disease-prevention, and overall health of your soil. For your garden
and outdoor plants, add compost as a soil fertilizer from spring to fall. For indoor plants, fill a
spray bottle with Enagic® Water, and then add a couple tablespoons of Kangen Compost for an
extra boost of nutrients.

Simply put, composting with Enagic® is a healthy choice for you, your plants, and our
environment!
    Kangen Water® with a Twist
    Drink Green, Drink Healthy
    Have you ever wondered why so many Americans choose to fill their bodies with sugary,
    caffeinated, and high-caloric beverages? Kangen Water® is in constant competition with drinks
    that do not have healthy benefits, do not promote adequate hydration, and are usually packaged
    with wasteful materials.

    Here's a ranking of the most consumed beverages in the U.S. :                        1



     1. Carbonated Soft Drinks (almost twice as much as any other beverage)

     2. Bottled Water

     3. Coffee

     4. Milk

     5. Beer

    Aside from what some of these beverages can do to your overall health, they are also harmful to
    our environment. Here are a few quick facts about how the environmental affects these popular
    drinks:

   Over 75% of all plastic bottles (including soda and water bottles) are littered or end up in the
    landfill2.
   Plastic bottles take 500 years to biodegrade2.
   The carbon footprint of PET plastic (found in plastic bottles) is about 13 pounds of CO2 per 1
    pound of plastic2.
   Although they are made of paper, disposable coffee cups are NOT recyclable, as they contain a
    plastic outer coating to keep them leak-proof.
   US coffee drinkers use about 40 billion paper and 25 billion plastic cups a year3. Put end-to-end,
    this chain of wasteful coffee cups could wrap around the Earth 55 times.
Kangen Water® can hydrate your body with clean, healthy water, and it does not require wasteful
packaging. Simply fill up a BPA-free reusable Enagic® water bottle with Kangen Water® before
you leave the house, and you can enjoy healthy, green hydration all day.

Fight the urge to fill your body with unhealthy beverages! Be smart; hydrate with the delicious
and fresh Kangen Water® for better health and a greener life.


Making the Switch




Sometimes it's not so easy to replace unhealthy drinks with Kangen Water®, especially if you
have developed an addiction to sugar or caffeine.

If you have habitually filled your diet with sugary, fatty, and high caloric beverages, you may
need to add a little twist to your delicious Kangen Water®. Use these ideas to liven up your
Kangen Water® with natural flavors:

 1. Adding crushed herbs, such as mint or lemongrass, will add aroma and flavor.

 2. Citrus and berries provide a fruity twist to Kangen Water®. Cut or squeeze oranges, limes,
    blueberries, or strawberries. Try mixing fruit flavors, such as lemon and lime.

 3. Fill a pitcher with lemon slices, then add Kangen Water® for cool, refreshing water all day.

 4. For a stronger flavor, add unsweetened fruit juices such as cranberry cocktail.

 5. Freeze small fruits (clementine oranges, mango slices, berries, etc) and use then as delicious
    ice cubes in your Kangen Water®.

 6. Add Fair Trade herbal tea bags to cold Kangen Water® and the flavors will infuse with the
    water. This makes great afternoon iced tea.
    You can enjoy a healthy, delicious beverage without hurting the environment! Say NO to plastic
    bottles and wasteful packaging and get creative with Kangen Water®.

Cooking with Kangen Water®
Staying hydrated with alkaline Kangen Water® is an important step toward physical health, but a
healthy diet is also paramount in overall wellness. Healthy eating supports a healthy body.

You can maximize the power of your Enagic® machine by learning how to prepare Nature's
healthy ingredients with 3 different types of Enagic® Water, and then cooking these vibrant
foods with alkaline Kangen Water®. Here are some simple ways you can substitute Kangen
Water® in your recipes to make your food even more nutritious and delicious:

 1. Don't waste any part of your vegetables! Many people chop up a vegetable and throw away
     the ends - in fact, 27% of all edible food gets wasted every year! But you can reduce waste
     by using these veggie tips to make healthy homemade Kangen Water® broth! Once your
     vegetables have been properly cleaned, you can store the pieces you do not need right away
     in the freezer. Once you have about 3 or 4 pounds of vegetable pieces stored, you're ready to
     make delicious, flavorful Kangen Water® Vegetable Broth. Once the broth is made, add
     your cooked vegetables to your compost pile.

 2. You can also use your spare vegetable "tips" to make delicious Kangen Water® salad
     dressings! If you have ever looked at the label of most salad dressings in the grocery store,
     you know they are largely comprised of water, high fructose corn syrup, and other natural
     and artificial "flavors." Why not eat salad dressing made of healthy, alkaline Kangen
     Water® and other nutritious and natural ingredients? For a delicious Kangen Water®

Greener Produce
Even if you are an avid Kangen Gardener, chances are you will still need to buy some of your
groceries and produce elsewhere.

Where can you find the greenest produce?
For the freshest and healthiest food, local produce is your best option. Buying your produce
locally will ensure that it has more nutrients than produce that has been shipped across the
country or internationally1. Fruits and vegetables lose nutrients on the long trip to your grocery
store and often bruise along the bumpy ride1. In fact, most supermarket produce is picked 4 - 7
days before it arrives at your grocery store, and only 18 cents of every dollar goes to the original
farmer, while 82 cents supports the various middlemen2.

Meanwhile, local produce is usually sold within 24 hours after it has been picked. And local
farmers are more likely to prioritize taste, nutrition, and diversity over transportability1.

Buying your produce locally is a responsible decision for the environment as well. On average,
produce is shipped 1500 miles to your supermarket2. Think of the resources you can conserve just
by cutting out the unnecessary middlemen and buying fresh ingredients from your local farmers!

Buying your produce locally, especially if it is Certified Organic, will reduce or eliminate your
chances of pesticide exposure. Farmers are not allowed to grow produce with certain pesticides,
but the US can still ship those dangerous pesticides to other countries - about 100 to 150 million
pounds of pesticides to be exact3. The US only inspects the pesticides on approximately 1% of all
imported produce to be sold in our grocery stores, which may have been farmed with the harmful
pesticides3.

When you choose produce from local farmers, you can have peace of mind that the farmers have
abided by strict regulations to not use certain pesticides.

If you need help finding a local farmer or farmer's market, go here, where you can search for
small farms near you.

Once you bring home your fresh local produce, you will need to wash it with your Enagic®
machine. Find out how to get the most of your clean produce with Kangen Water®.




                          The Real Cost of Regular Tap Water
It might shock you to realize that most tap water in America is not good for your health.
In a recent New York Times article it was revealed that the 35-year-old federal law
regulating tap water is so out of date that the water Americans drink can pose what
scientists say are serious health risks while still being legal under this old law.


For example, only 91 contaminants are regulated by the Safe Drinking Water Act of 1974, yet
more than 60,000 chemicals are used within the United States, according to Environmental
Protection Agency estimates. This New York Times article went on to explain that more than 62
million Americans have been exposed to drinking water that does not meet at least one commonly
used government health guideline intended to help protect people from cancer or serious disease.




The Ralph Nader Research Institute has also stated that water pollution in America is at dangerous
levels and that the drinking water supply now contains thousands of cancer-causing substances.
And this number is growing every single day. Among the contaminants that may be found in tap
water include chlorine, fluoride, lye, heavy metals like lead, mercury, and asbestos, as well as
bacteria, viruses, and parasites. Chlorine is used by a lot of municipal water districts to keep their
reservoirs free from bacteria. However, When ingested, chlorine produces acids that can harm
cells in the body. Heavy metals like lead and asbestos can also contaminate tap water from lead
pipes lined with asbestos. Lead exposure is known to cause behavioral problems and learning
disabilities.


The Bottled Water Bonanza: Solutions or New Problems




                      Because of the dangers of drinking tap water many people have
resorted to buying expensive bottled water. In fact, bottled water is an 11 Billion dollar
a year industry in America today.


An estimated 50 billion bottles of water are consumed every year in the US and around 200 billion
bottles globally. Because of this incredible volume, plastic bottles have become one of the biggest
environmental problems facing our globe today. And on a personal level, bottled water can also be
harmful to your body.
Most people are surprised to learn that most bottled water is acidic and carries
chemicals and pollutants that are leached from the plastic bottle itself. No laws require
bottled water to be any better than tap water… and about 25% of all bottled waters are,
in actuality, just reprocessed tap water.


Is Your Water “Dead or Alive?”




                      Also, many bottled water manufacturers use either the process of
reverse osmosis or distillation to process their water, both purification processes result
in what is commonly referred to as “dead” water. Instead of nurturing and supporting your
body, drinking acidic water can actually have negative effects on your body’s ability to absorb
important nutrients.


Reverse osmosis (RO) water as well as distilled water are considered “dead waters”
because everything has been removed from it including important minerals like calcium,
magnesium and potassium.


If you’re drinking “dead water”, you’re not eliminating free radicals. On the contrary, you are, in
actuality, increasing the oxidation in your body rather than reducing it.


The Kangen Water® Solution: Alkalized and Ionized




                         Kangen Water® solves the problems discussed with both tap and
bottled waters. The Kangen Alkaline Ionized Water System produces pure water that
works to restore an individual’s pH levels. It removes all of the contaminants but keeps
the important minerals.
And with an abundance of OH- hydroxyl ions, Kangen Water® is a very potent anti-
oxidant. In fact Kangen Water is 7 to 10 times the antioxidant power as green tea.


In addition, Kangen Water helps to detoxify and to super-hydrate your body.




                                           To sum up, Kangen Water® is tap water
which has gone through a process of electrolysis and, thereby, becomes restructured
water like glacier, high mountain water.


Kangen Hexagonal Water

Kangen Water is hexagonal and micro-clustered (the micro-clusters are about 1/3 the
size of tap water).


This ionized water is separated electrically by Kangen Water Ionizers into OH- ions which are
concentrated in Kangen Alkaline Waters (8.5-9.5 pH) and H+ ions which are concentrated in the
Strong Acidic and Acidic Water (2.5-6.0 pH.




                           This ionization or separation enables the enables the concentrated
OH-ions in the Kangen Water to help neutralize the acids and remove the harmful toxins from your
blood stream.


By buffering and removing these acids, you can help slow down your aging process because
disease thrives in an acid environment. Acid waste in your body causes hardening of your organs
and tissues and creates acidosis which is associated with most types of disease and aging.
“Hexagonal Water is found surrounding healthy DNA, whereas unorganized water is
found surrounding the DNA of diseased tissue.” - Jhon, M.S.,The Water Puzzle and the
Hexagonal Key
