There are many poor imitations of Enagic Kangen Water® machines but none have met the medical grade standard that Enagic have produced in domestic water ionizers since 1994. Kangen Water® is actually registered as a trademark by Enagic so no other ionized water has any legitimacy to use that name – which in Japan means “Return to Origin”
There are many companies now endeavouring to ride on the success of Enagic. Despite their clever marketing and claims of better technology none of them have managed to improve on Enagic’s standards and none of them are registered as medical devices and therefore do not have medical standard electrolysis plates. This is really important because should they not be medical grade then all sorts of health difficulties could arise.
We recommend that after you do your due diligence you ensure you purchase a machine that has authentic medical grade credentials.
