In the field of water treatment, you may have heard of "Kangen water".
These machines work with a similar process to our VIP, Lourdes, Table or Hendy machines, namely the hydrolysis of water, with the use of an anode and a cathode, with a membrane in between. There is thus production of oxygen on one side, and hydrogen on the other.
The main difference (besides the price: Kangen machines are much more expensive than our machines) lies in the pH of the water.
This is because Kangen machines produce water with a pH other than 7, namely alkaline or acidic water. They recommend a pH of 8.5 to 9.5 for the 'therapeutic' use of this water.
The problem... is that the use of alkaline water (ph=8.5 to 9.5) has no benefits that would be proven.
I quote here:
"As for the benefits of alkaline water, this is also a tenacious belief widely disseminated on the Internet to sell 'water ionizers' comparable to Enagic's machine." No scientific publication has ever shown the slightest benefit," says Martin Weik, a biophysicist at the Institute of Structural Biology in Grenoble. And Dominique Eladari, researcher at the Assistance publique-Hôpitaux de Paris (AP-HP), a specialist in renal physiology and acid/base regulation, adds: "In any case, in the body the pH is very powerfully regulated. Drinking water has no influence. »"
Other sources (Cleveland Clinic) tell us that the supposed effects of alkaline water are not proven, or even downright bad for health (https://health.clevelandclinic.org/alkaline-water-dont-believe-the-marketing-hype/
And while some say that kangen water would be good for bones and notably bone marrow, the US FDA (Food and Drug Authority) has issued a report stating that it has not seen a link between alkaline water and bone marrow (https://www.fda.gov/food/food-labeling-nutrition/health-claims-letter-denial-alkaline-and-earth-alkaline-citrates-minimizing-risk-osteoporosis)
Then... Congratulations kangen for the hydrogenated water you produce... like us, you have grasped the benefits!
But alkaline (ph>7)... really useful, see wise for health?
