Life Ionizers vs Kangen: There is a Difference

What’s the difference between LIFE Ionizers and Enagic Kangen? The benefits are the same, but that’s where the similarities stop. For one thing, the Kangen machine is about twice as expensive as our seven LIFE M-7, our comparable machine. The Kangen machine doesn’t filter out as many toxins from your water that a LIFE ionizer does. The Kangen machine can’t reach the same high acid fighting pH, and age-fighting antioxidant power levels a LIFE Ionizer can, nor does Enagic Kangen guarantee that you’ll get the most antioxidant benefit possible in every glass of perfectly pH balanced. alkaline water you drink. How come LIFE can guarantee these things and Enagic can’t?

Just the facts: Life & Kangen™ compared with our comprehensive guide.

  • As you can see from the chart above

    LIFE Ionizers gives you more, for less money, than Kangen does. Why is there such a big difference? Technology, LIFE Ionizers constantly upgrades our ionizers with the latest technologies including computer controlled SMPS power supplies, our ultra-tough, guaranteed-for-life drop forged GRID plates, and our industry leading customized filtration systems.

  • What about Enagic Kangen?

    They never upgrade their machine, it’s still using mid 1990’s technology. Think about it: Buying a Kangen machine is like buying a 1990’s computer running Windows 95 – and paying twice as much for it as you would a brand new computer!

  • So why is the Kangen machine so expensive

    if it’s built with such old technology? Because the Kangen machine is sold through a multi-level marketing pyramid. What you’re paying for when you buy a Kangen machine isn’t quality or technology; you’re paying multi-level marketer’s commissions. Multi-level marketing makes everything more expensive.
