Two Different Kinds of Alkaline Water

There are two different kinds of alkaline water. There is bad alkaline (chemical additive) and good alkaline (electrical restructuring of molecules).

Or you can also say there is a difference between alkaline water and alkaLIZED, or also known as Electrolyzed Reduced Water or H2 Water among other names.

For example, “bad alkaline” can be found in bottled alkaline waters which are an imitation or counterfeit of good alkaline or alkaLIZED water. When you read the ingredients of the bottled alkaline waters you will see that some type of alkaline substance has been added to the water.

Look at the ingredients of Essentia 9.5 bottled alkaline water for example, and you’ll see the first ingredient after water is “sodium bicarbonate”.

Then go read the directions on your baking soda bag or container and you’ll see warnings that if you ingest too much it can build up in your system and cause health problems. And it usually describes the type of health problems that can occur if you ingest too much baking soda.

Bottled alkaline water can mess with your stomach acid since the baking soda or sodium bicarbonate that is in the water is an antacid.

But there is a difference between “alkaline” and “alkaLIZED” or a difference between bad alkaline and good alkaline. Watch here: 

Bottled “alkaline” waters can cause an imbalance in your body because the chemical additive(s) or inorganic mineral(s) can build up in your body. This possible build up of inorganic minerals can cause an imbalance and therefore this water can make you too alkaline, again due to the possible build up of inorganic minerals. Our bodies treat these chemical additives or inorganic minerals as toxins and too many toxins can cause an imbalance to the health processes of our bodies.

Whereas alkaLIZED water, which has been restructured on a molecular level with electricity does not cause an imbalance in your body because there is no addition of chemicals or inorganic minerals. Instead alkaLIZED water balances out your body by alkalizing your body by helping to carry out acidic wastes or toxins from within your cells. Again, alkaLIZED water doesn’t have anything added to it, but rather has had its molecular structure reorganized with electricity causing the drinking water to become high alkaline or reach a high alkaline pH due to the H2O molecule being split into H2 and -OH and the positively charged acidic hydrogen ions being pulled out of the drinking water. This water has been changed with electricity.

This restructuring of the water causes the molecules within the water to be able to penetrate deep within your cells and thus carry or flush out acidic wastes or toxins. This detoxifying process is what alkalizes your body. Or when you think of detoxing your body, think of alkalizing your body and vice versa.

AlkaLIZED water is living water because of its extraordinary properties and which properties do not last more than a few days. This water needs to be drank fresh in order to enjoy its benefits. Therefore this water cannot be bottled and sold in stores because the properties of the water would be gone before this water even got to the store shelf. This water is found high up in the mountains from glacial melt water, a few rare springs around the world such in Lourdes, France, or can be made in the home with a water ionizer that has the Gold Seal Certification from the Water Quality Association.

You can see the Gold Seal Certification from the Water Quality Association by clicking here.

The reason I bring up the Gold Seal Certification from the WQA is because just as bottled alkaline water is the imitation or counterfeit to alkaLIZED water, there are also imitation or counterfeit ionizers that simply add in an inorganic mineral into the water to artificially raise the pH the same as these bottled alkaline waters artificially raise the pH by adding baking soda into the water.

The bottled alkaline waters you see in the store are the imitations of alkaLIZED water.

Cheri McGaffin and myself have had our Kangen Water machine model SD501 for 3 years now and we have changed and saved so many lives. We originally got our machine when my wife was 8 months pregnant. She was having a lot of health issues. Shortly after we started drinking the water consistently fresh from our own machine absolutely amazing things happened.

We started sharing the water with everyone we could in our neighborhood and with friends and family and soon it seemed almost everyone was asking us how they could purchase the same device that produces this living, electrically-charged water because of all the amazing things that were happening.

The price is not inflated because of the referral program but actually deflated. If Kangen Water machines were sold in stores they would cost $10,000 or more.

The medical grade platinum, used on the plates that conduct the electrical charge through the water, costs about $2,000 an ounce. The mark-up on the Kangen Water machines are less than 3 times. Whereas most retail products found in stores have mark-ups from 5 times up to 100 times such as bottled water. It only costs 1 penny to manufacture the plastic bottle and fill it with dead, acidic water and yet these bottles sell for about $1 many times. That is a mark-up of 100 times.

Have you thought about the mark-up on products you buy?

Here below are some standard mark-ups I have found for different products and here is a great video by Curtis Goble explaining mark-ups on products:

* Athletic Shoes
Manufacture Cost: $1
Price Sold: $100
Mark-up: 100 times

* Bottled Water
Manufacture Cost: 1 cent
Price Sold: 99 cents
Mark-up: 99 times

Manufacture Cost: 70 cents
Price Sold: $19.99
Mark-up: 29 times

* Furniture
Manufacture Cost: $100
Price Sold: $799
Mark-up: 8 times

* Building Construction
Manufacture Cost: $200,000
Price Sold: $1 Million
Mark-up: 5 times

* Kangen Water Machine SD501 by Enagic
Manufacture Cost: $1400
Price Sold: $3980
Mark-up: 2.85 times

So because there is the referral program included then the cost of these devices is actually driven down as people communicate with each other home to home, family to family, friend to friend, heart to heart and spread the good news about this incredible water.

You can also finance the units for as low as $45 a month.

Beware of imitation machines or imitation water. For example there is a difference between “alkaline” and “alkaLIZED”.

Those “alkaline” waters you see in the health food store simply have an inorganic mineral added to the water such as “sodium bicarbonate” which is baking soda. Look at the ingredients of Essentia 9.5 bottled alkaline water and you’ll see the first ingredient after water is “sodium bicarbonate”.

Essentia 9.5 ingredients - sodium bicarbonate

Then go read the directions on your baking soda bag or box and you’ll see warnings that if you ingest too much it can build up in your system and cause health problems.

And the competing IMITATION machines to the Kangen Water machines don't work!

I spoke with a competing company by way of their online chat. They could never answer my question about how many amps their machines have.

Not only did they fail to answer my question but they became very rude and unprofessional as they called me names, made fun of me, and tried to bully and intimidate me. All because I wanted to know how many amps their machines have.

When they asked why I wanted to know, I explained that once I found out, then I could determine how many Potential Electrolysis Units (PEUs) their machines produce.

Because I learned from Dr. Michael Donaldson, in his excellent presentation here at about the 20-minute mark: that you need 250,000 PEUs to disassociate the hydrogen atom from the H2O water molecule.

The formula is Amps multiplied by Watts multiplied by Square Surface Area of the Plates (A x W x Sa = PEUs)

This competing company falsely told me the formula is watts multiplied by plates. This is incorrect because if you have "up to 800 watts" as they claimed but only .5 amps then that reduces in half the amount of wattage supplied.

Then when you figure out that their plates are smaller, you will see they do not have 250,000 PEUs. So since these imitation machines do not have enough electrical power, then they can't properly ionize the water and thus they must add in minerals to the water when it runs through their filters to artificially raise the pH, similar to baking soda (sodium bicarbonate).

Most of these imitation machines claim to have two filters but their secondary “filter” only serves the main purpose of adding inorganic minerals into the water such as sodium bicarbonate or a related compound.

On the other side of things, the Kangen Water machine model SD501 has 230 Watts x 2.5 Amps x 623 cm of square surface plate area = 358,225 PEUs. (Source: Dr. Michael Donaldson's personal measurements he detailed in his video presentation here: . Also see here for math compiled by Lauri Tauscher. Or refer to the product specifications, including plate size, of the Enagic SD501 listed on the manufacture website here )

The Kangen Water machines do NOT add in any additives such as the imitation machines do. The reason why true alkaLIZED water has a high pH is because they have a high proportion of dissolved hydrogen (H2) in the water. That's what pH stands for, "parts hydrogen" or “potential of hydrogen” or “power of hydrogen".
Or for those of you who are more scientific, the water that runs through a true ionizer (not imitation) is split between alkaline (or alkaLIZED) and acidic.

I learned the good alkaline drinking water has a lesser quantity of the acidic H+, positively-charged hydrogen ion. H+ is positively charged and therefore it is acidic.

So the alkaline drinking water has a smaller amount of H+, making it alkaline on the pH scale. Whereas on the acidic side, the acidic water has a higher concentration of H+, making this water measure acidic on the pH scale.

In short, due to this electrical process of ionization (electrolysis) that occurs, the proportion of H2 (dissolved hydrogen) that has been created has also simultaneously removed the acidic H+ ions from the water and thus when it is measured on the pH scale, it measures alkaline.

The point is imitation waters do NOT have H2 (dissolved hydrogen) in them. And H2 is the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory property of the water.

Watch this video here showing visually the water being split into alkaline drinking and acidic cleaning waters:

Again the Enagic ionizers are the only ones in the world that have the coveted Gold Seal Certification from the Water Quality Association (WQA).

All of the imitation/counterfeit ionizers could not pass all the tests from the WQA and therefore none of them currently have the Gold Seal Certification. Many of these imitation companies will tell people that they are members of the WQA but being a member of the WQA is not the same thing as being awarded the Gold Seal Certification for their products.

And to help you understand the difference between bad alkaline and good alkaline refer to the comparisons below… (or watch this video here:
