Dr. Sebi was asked about water a number of times, mainly people wanted to know which water one should drink. One of the questions was about Kangen water. Of course Dr. Sebi does not endorse the consumption of Kangen water, let’s find out a bit more about Kangen water and why it was not approved by Dr. Sebi.
Kangen water is not naturally alkaline
Kangen water, also known as ionized water or electrolyzed water, is not naturally alkaline. It is produced using a water ionizer machine, which changes the pH of water by separating it into acidic and alkaline components through electrolysis. The alkaline water produced by these machines is sometimes marketed as “alkaline water” or “Kangen water.”
The process of creating ‘alkaline Kangen water’ typically involves passing regular tap water through an ionizer, which uses electrodes to separate the water into two streams: one that is more alkaline (with a higher pH) and one that is more acidic (with a lower pH). The alkaline water produced can have a pH ranging from 8 to 11 or even higher.
It’s important to note that the alkalinity of Kangen water is achieved through artificial means. Dr. Sebi had pointed out that natural and artificial alkalinity is not the same thing. In order for any alkaline substance to be accepted it must be naturally occurring, though nature, not human manipulation.
Kangen water does not have naturally occurring minerals
Kangen water, as produced by water ionizer machines, typically does not contain naturally occurring minerals. The primary process of water ionization involves altering the pH of water through electrolysis, creating separate alkaline and acidic streams. The resulting alkaline water generally does not derive its alkalinity from naturally occurring minerals but rather from the artificial separation of ions in the water.
Naturally occurring alkaline water, on the other hand, may have a higher pH due to the presence of dissolved minerals like calcium, magnesium, and bicarbonate ions. These minerals can provide alkalinity to the water and are often found in certain natural spring waters.
Kangen water and similar ionized waters are generated using tap water or purified water, which is then processed through ionization to achieve the desired pH level. While some people believe in the potential health benefits of consuming alkaline water, it’s important to understand that the alkalinity in these waters is typically achieved artificially and does not necessarily provide the same mineral content or health benefits as naturally occurring alkaline spring waters.
As a result of this process, Dr Sebi did not, and would not have supported the consumption of Kangen water.
Dr. Sebi has however supported the consumption of natural spring water. Dr. Sebi also spoke about the benefits of thermal waters.
