There are four ionized water types; each type has its own benefits and use. These types are:
1. Alkaline water or Kangen water (pH 8.5 – 9.5)
– It increases hydration and energy – It has small molecules that are easily absorbed in the body. Therefore, this ensures that the body is always hydrated.
– It detoxifies the body and supports wellness – The water flushes toxins out of the body faster than conventional water. It also fights against free radicals in the body, thus enhancing the overall body wellness.
– The water is also good for plants as it balances the soil pH, which is not the case with tap water. It can restore the health of plants that are not in good condition because of cut flowers, and it helps plants in gaining new freshness.
– The water is good for cooking as it enhances the natural flavor of food, and therefore, less salt is used while cooking.
– When brewing coffee, the water enhances its aroma, color and flavor.

2. Strong alkaline water or Strong Kangen Water (pH 11.0)
This ionized water has the following benefits:
– It dissolves oil-based pesticides on vegetables and fruits. This is unlike for tap water that does not have such strength.
– Soaking vegetables and fruits in water prolongs their shelf life since it removes the rusting and oxidation that occurs while in the stores.
– The water is used to remove stains and grease on carpets, floors and even inside ovens. The water can also be used when cleaning your car.
– The oxygen bleach in the water is safe for fabric when cleaning and removes stubborn stains like grass, oil and coffee on clothes.
3. Acidic Water or Water for The Skincare (pH 4.0 – 6.0)
This ionized water has the following benefits on the skin:
– Contrary to using lotions, creams and toners, an individual can use ionized water, since its pH makes the skin acidic, as it naturally is supposed to be. In addition, the water keeps the bacteria that cause acne at bay and counters the natural aging of the skin to some extent.
– On hair, alkaline water prevents dandruff, and itching of the scalp, as well as fungus growth, as it helps hair to balance its natural pH level unlike conventional water.
4. Strong Acidic Water (pH 2.7)
This water has the following benefits:
– It is used to clean and disinfect meat, eggs and seafood by killing any bacteria on them in less than 30 seconds on contact. Using it on food also prevents food poisoning caused by bacteria.
– The water is an effective sanitizer for kitchen utensils and surfaces. It can also be used on other surfaces, thus killing all the germs found here.
– The water is an effective disinfectant on toothbrushes. It also helps to prevent gum inflammation, sore throat and cold sores.
– The alkaline ionized water also helps to reduce skin and fur odor on pets.
You may ask how about neutral water? Neutral water with pH 7 is not ionized water. In neutral water the hydroxyl and hydrogen ions are in balance because it has not been electrically charged. But once the water has been ionized using water ionizer machine depending on the purpose you can produce four basic ionized water types for your needs and use them daily.
