Kangen Water vs. Chanson Water

Wondering what the difference is between Kangen water and Chanson water? Both are brand names for ionized water produced by electric water ionizers.

In this video, our CEO touches on some of the differences between the two companies:

Here is a summary:

  • Chanson uses newer technology and offers more compact units
  • Chanson ionizers do not use calcium sulfite, which has been banned in several countries and may cause allergic reactions
  • Chanson is not a MLM (multi-level company) and therefore have a much lower price point, about half of a Kangen/Enagic

Is Your Garden pH Balanced?

Have you tried cultivating your own blossoms only to have them die, or attempted to grow your own produce but lost it to hungry bugs?

Gardening is hard work, and the pH balance of the plant water and soil plays a large role in whether or not your efforts are successful.

Unlike humans, plants “breathe out” oxygen and “breathe in” carbon dioxide. While humans thrive on clean, ionized alkaline water, most plants like to drink ionized acid water, as shown in this gradeschool science experiment. Plus, most insects are repelled by ionized acidic water, making it an all natural pesticide.

Most rainwater has a pH of 5.6-5.8 due to the presence of carbonic acid (H2CO3). This means it is moderately acidic, but should not be confused with acid rain which hovers closer to 3.0 pH due to emissions of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides mixing with the water molecules. Many commercial fertilizers are ammonia-based in order to increase soil acidity, but the water that comes out of your sprinklers and garden hose is likely neutral or slightly alkaline and filled with chemicals like chlorine, chloramines and fluoride which can be harmful to plants.

Since most people aren’t filtering their plant water or aware of which pH each plant prefers, we created the following chart as a guide to help your garden grow:

When it’s time to cut your blossoms to give away or display around the house, most cut flower stems should be watered with ionized alkaline water since, like us, they have been uprooted from their original life force and are slowly dying.

And when you’re ready to eat the produce you have grown, we recommend spritzing it with strong ionized acidic water to naturally kill any bacteria that has grown on them. Then you can soak the produce in 8.5 pH ionized alkaline water for 10 minutes directly before consuming in order to revive the produce to it’s freshly picked state. You’ll have the freshest, best-tasting organic produce on the block!

A Chanson water ionizer is capable of producing every pH level of water that you and your plants need to thrive.

Applications of Ionized Acid Water: Body, Skin & Hair

 

Your body is constantly struggling to achieve alkaline-acid balance, just like it must always be regulating its temperature. Your blood must remain slightly alkaline at 7.365 pH 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in order to survive.

When we continuously consume acidic food and drinks, our body has to compensate by borrowing alkaline minerals from places like our eyes, bones and teeth in order to combat the acidity (and thus prevent death).

A healthy body is slightly alkaline on the inside and slightly acidic (to fight off viruses and bacteria) on the outside. But most people are struggling with an overacidic internal environment, and overly alkaline skin. An overacidic internal environment can lead to weight gain and diseases of all kinds, while overly alkaline skin may reveal itself in the form of pimples, fungus, skin conditions like rashes, etc.

One solution is to drink ionized alkaline water and eat more alkaline foods (vegetables, non-sweet fruits, nuts and seeds) which will help combat the internal acidity and naturally help correct the external problem. Another solution for the skin, body and hair is to topically apply ionized acid water in order to achieve alkaline-acid balance externally. You can get both types of ionized water (alkaline and acid) from a water ionizer for pennies on the gallon.

Ionized acid water with a pH of 5.5 is a natural astringent with antibacterial properties that can also reduce inflammation. The Japanese refer to it as “beauty water” because it is so beneficial for the skin, and those who wash with it tend to look younger and healthier than those who using ordinary tap water or even expensive beauty products.

Here are some of the many applications of ionized acid water on the body, skin and hair:

Skin

  • Skin toner, anti-aging serum, wrinkle reducer
  • Blemish reducer, scars, sunburns, ingrown nails/hairs
  • Hand sanitizer, aftershave
  • Skin rashes/irritations
  • Dry/chapped skin, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, ringworm

Hair

  • Conditioner
  • Dandruff relief
  • Detangler
  • Rinse
Personal Deodorizer/Disinfectant
  • Deodorant/antiperspirant, athletes foot, jock itch, toe fungus
  • Mouthwash, gargle for sore throat, toothpaste, canker sores/cold sores
  • Female yeast conditions and other female issues, enemas
  • Add to a sick child’s bathwater to kill germs and viruses
  • Try for pink eye, ear infections, or snorting for nasal congestion and sinus relief

First Aid

  • Burns
  • Minor cuts and scrapes
  • Boils, blisters, bedsores
  • Bug bites, poison ivy

Ionized acid water is an eco-friendly, budget-friendly, multipurpose fluid that can save you hundreds a year on skin, body and hair products. Invest in a water ionizer today, and start enjoying the many benefits of ionized acid water for beauty and body care.

Don’t Let Your Ionized Acidic Water Go Down the Drain!

Most people purchase a water ionizer for the vast health benefits of drinking alkaline ionized water. However, alkaline water is only half of the benefit of owing an ionizer. The by-product that water ionizers produce–ionized acidic water–has a myriad of benefits from body, skin and hair care to household and industrial cleaning.

Ionized acidic water is water rich in H+ ions, which occurs when water ionizers electrolyze ordinary tap water and separate them into two streams–alkaline and acidic. The water is divided at a 70:30 ratio, and oftentimes, users allow the acid water to travel from its rubber drainage spout right down the drain, literally wasting one of the most versatile, eco-friendly products on the planet!

Fortunately, it is possible to collect and store ionized acidic water effectively. It should keep its strength for 90 days provided that you minimize its exposure to light and oxygen by storing it in a closed, opaque container.

Chanson water has been 3rd party lab tested and verified to make strong acid water which disinfects on contact when made at 2.7 pH. Many brands of ionizers can’t make strong acid water, or can’t make it without using chemical solutions. Chanson is very proud that our machines can make strong acid water in 70% of all water sources without alteration, and for the remaining 30% we are the first company to use natural mineral-rich Himalayan salt instead of chemicals to create strong acidic water with the Chanson Miracle M.A.X. water ionizer.

Here are a few ways to collect and put your ionized acidic water to work for you:

  • Collect it in cups or a watering can and use it to water plants daily. Most potted plants and plants in your landscape crave acid water, and will thrive and grow faster when watered with it.
  • Purchase some small cobalt or amber glass spray bottles to fill with 2.7-5.5 pH water and store in the medicine cabinet, and your purse or gym bag. Use as an all-natural facial toner, hand sanitizer, aftershave, deodorant and on rashes and bug bites.
  • Collect it in a bucket and use to wash your car, bike, motorcycle or boat with.
  • Fill opaque plastic spray bottles with 2.7-5.5 pH water, and store them under the kitchen and bathroom sink. Use for household cleaning and disinfecting purposes like glass, tile, floors, stain removal, sinks, toilets, doorknobs, and cutting boards. Must be 2.7 pH to disinfect, and not all brands of ionizers can produce water this low without chemical alteration.
  • Recycle an empty opaque shampoo or conditioner bottle and use 5.5-6.0 pH ionized acid water as a final hair rinse.
  • Collect in cups and use to pre-rinse dishes before loading into the dishwasher.
  • Recycle an empty mouthwash bottle, fill it with 2.7-3.5 pH ionized acid water and add some peppermint or spearmint essential oil for minty freshness at a fraction of the cost of commercial, alcohol-based mouthwashes.
  • Collect it in a bucket and use to wash Fido to keep his coat shiny.

Still have more acid water than you know what to do with?

Consider bottling and giving some away to family, friends and neighbors with some suggestions on how to use it, and offer to let them refill their own bottles. Or you can even try selling it. Our SkinBalance product retails for $19.95 and is still only a fraction of the cost of the high-end skin care products it replaces.

After introducing acidic water to your friends and family, people are bound to want to know how they can get their own ionizer. You can become a Chanson Water dealer or affiliate and make money off of each sale!

Testimonial: Ionized Acidic Water for Sore Throats

 

Not only is Chanson acidic water effective against bacterial issues but it is also safe for both adults and children!

Here’s a recent testimonial we received from one of our youngest customers:

“I woke up with a sore throat this morning and tried a honey lemon cough drop but that only took the pain away for about ten minutes. Then my mom remembered that acid water is supposed to help with sore throats. I got some from our water ionizer and gargled with it, and the pain immediately went away and has not come back! I thought I might have to gargle again after eating but the pain is totally gone. I was so excited, I told my mom we should put that on their web site!”

–Hannah M., age 11, Lake Elsinore, CA
