WARNING: Kangen Water® Additive May Cause Side Effects

Kangen water® machines make artificially alkaline water using a chemical additive called calcium glycerophosphate, a drug often used as a calcium supplement. Calcium glycerophosphate is a potent drug that can cause a decrease in normal levels of stomach acid. Health experts recommend that you only consume calcium glycerophosphate under a doctor’s orders because over-consumption can be dangerous. If you use too much calcium glycerophosphate in your Kangen water®, you may experience some potentially health-threatening side effects. These side effects can range from moderate (gas) to severe (kidney stones).

Side Effects of Calcium Glycerophosphate

Calcium glycerophosphate is a drug that when taken as directed is safe. However, Enagic doesn’t provide any guidance to its customers about its effects. The problem with that is, Kangen Machine owners must use it to increase the pH levels of the water their machine makes, so it’s very possible to use too much, and endanger your health. The side effects reported below are from WebMD:

    If you experience any of these Kangen Water side effects, stop drinking Kangen water and see your doctor, right away

If you experience any of the side effects of calcium glycerophosphate from drinking Kangen water, stop drinking it and tell your doctor right away. The most common side reported from drinking kangen water spiked with calcium glycerophosphate are nausea and constipation. Kangen water® machine owners who experience these side effects are overdosing on calcium glycerophosphate!

Health Conditions – Talk to your doctor before drinking Kangen water®

Talk to your doctor before drinking Kangen water if you have a history of kidney stones or low stomach acid. Warn your doctor that the machine uses the calcium glycerophosphate additive. Your doctor will probably advise you not to use it.   Your doctor can advise you on how much (if any) Kangen water® you should drink.

Life Ionizers make natural alkaline water

Life alkaline water ionizers do not calcium glycerophosate, they make natural alkaline water. The reason Enagic® needs to add calcium glycerophosate to their water is that the Kangen water® machine isn’t powerful enough to make natural alkaline water unless the water being used has sufficient hardness.

Kangen water® sales representatives that we’ve talked to are unaware of the risks that can come from over-consumption of calcium glycerophosate so watch out! To protect your health, you may want to avoid the kangen water® machine. Since Enagic® Kangen doesn’t understand the risks of the chemicals they’re using,  you can’t trust them.

    Your research on the Kangen water machines is not accurate. The Enagic machines do not attempt to produce alkaline water. The alkaline water is a by product of the process of creating the Kangen water. Please do not do your research on Google. Please research electrolyzed water on PubMud where there is verifiable research done by medical professionals.

    Hello there. I have been using a Kangen water machine for the last 3 years. As a letter carrier in Arizona I drink a gallon of Kangen water a day–for about 6 months during the summer season . It is the only water my family drinks . I have a question : the Platinum plates that the water runs over. Is it possible overtime that you can have a build-up of platinum in your body? Another heavy metal that would possibly need to be chelated out?
    I’ve spent thousands of dollars having heavy metals chelated out of my body intravenously. And in the back of my mind I wonder if I’m poisoning myself again. Any comments?

    I’ve been drinking Kangen Water now for almost 3 months. I love it. My only problem I’m having now is swelling above my ankle when I get home from work. I hope it’s not the Kangen Water.

    I have e-mailed enagic with this question twice with no answer, we know someone with the enagic machine that gave us 5 gallon water containers, 3 in wich was drinking water the other two so called beauty water wich i believe was more acidic, anyway 1 of the so calledbeauty water had a funny smell and taste the next day, the other four had a good taste, i’m just trying to find out why would only that gallon of water would go bad and not the others.

  • carlos says:

    Ok, good now wpuld that also why it also has a funny, acidic salty taste? Thank you for the first info, it’s very informal.

    • Al says:
