Main benefits for sport - Energy levels, Endurance, Recovery, Preventing Injury, Reducing Inflammation, Body Fat Reduction
It is well known among athletic trainers that chronic over-acidity is the underlying cause of pain, inflammation and poor performance. The body draws upon alkaline minerals stored in the bones and tissues to buffer the over-acid state caused by the food.
Most athletes are locked into a dietary pattern that is acid-producing. They do not consume enough alkaline, mineral-rich foods, such as nuts, fruits, and vegetables. Instead their diets contain high amounts of acid-forming foods, such as meat, fish, poultry, eggs, and dairy, energy bars sweetened with high fructose corn syrup or other unhealthy sugars, and acidic energy or sports drinks. Because of this dietary imbalance, they may be at risk to increased acidosis which affects overall health and sports performance. Since proper hydration is a key factor in preventing exercise fatigue, consuming restructured ionized.
The use of ion-rich alkaline water is proving to increase competitiveness and overall performance in world class athletes. A diet that supports alkalinity is also recommended by sports nutritionists. Consuming ionized, alkaline water will reduce the accumulation of acidity in exercising muscles, improving work-out intensity and recovery time. Former Denver Bronco, Bill Romanowski, was introduced to the power of “ionized” water late in his career to maintain his competitive edge.Competitive bodybuilder, personal trainer, author and speaker, Wade T. Lightheart, advocates the use of Kangen WaterTM produced from the Enagic Leveluk SD501, and credits it for motivating him to come out of retirement.

“I’m real excited to talk about my experience with Kangen Water. What happen just a few months ago really shocked me and, I believe, it will be sending another shock wave into the athletic world. I was introduced to Kangen Water when I was invited to attend a demonstration. I went over to check it out and considered myself fairly knowledgeable about water, as I write about it in my books and I recognize the importance. I went over and had my first glass of water and I can honestly say that, from my very first glass, I said “Wow! There is something very different with this water.”
“I know my body very well and I knew that I had never tasted any water like this before. There was something going on at a cellular level as the water went into my body. I started drinking the water and I watched the presentation. Everything that was said during the presentation totally fit in with everything I had learned in the last 20 years. I wasn’t aware of any technology that could produce the results that I was feeling. I had been exposed to other ionizers and, frankly, I hadn’t been impressed. This time I was feeling something quite different in my body in just the first few hours.”
“Over the next few days I drank more water and saw the presentation a few more times. By the 3rd day I looked in the mirror and I could not believe the results. I was losing body fat at a rate that was quite shocking. My recovery at the gym was at a phenomenal rate. I felt like I could run thorough the gym walls. The water was doing something so positive that I decided to put my reputation on the line and I entered the National Bodybuilding Championships. With only 2 weeks preparation I won in two different categories and qualified to compete for Natural Mr. Olympia in Greece. Because of the Kangen Water my physique transformed; my life transformed; I’m thrust back into competition. I believe that Kangen Water, produced by the Enagic® machine is going to be the next great thing in athletic performance!”

“Within the last four months I have learned that I was missing a huge important principal of health that was right before me this whole time. I had always felt that I was providing my elite athletes with all the key factors needed for health and success and energy and vitality, because I was giving then what I believed to be the most important. And even though I taught the principles and the need for hydration, I never understood until about four months ago the need for proper hydration. I taught for fifteen years in the nutrition industry that I cared more about nutrient utilization than simply nutrient consumption. That same principle holds true in the area of hydration and I didn’t really realize that. It’s not about how much water or liquid you drink it’s about how much is actually being utilized within the body.”
“When I was introduced to a company called Enagic®, they provide a very simple technology that improves the hydration of the water that goes into the body. And it’s very simple, it hooks up to your water faucet at home. Now, when they started telling me about this, I thought to myself, no way no way, my reputation has always been impeccable in the area of, I only represent things that make a big difference and truly has proven to be beneficial to people, so I thought, water is water. That couldn’t have been further from the truth. I was missing a very key component of our health, and that is proper hydration. Enagic® makes water called Kangen Water. Kangen in the Japanese word meaning “return to origin.”
“The water we consume today through tap, or bottled water, through purification systems, all of that water is very acidic. I had no idea. If you go back to the basics of nature, and you take water from natural springs coming out of the earth, all of that water has a very high pH or alkalinity to it, and the waters that we drink out of the tap or purification systems, or bottled water is far from alkaline, in fact it is more acidic. I didn’t realize that. Acidic water is actually damaging to the body. Acidic water is something we’d want to stay away from. Anything acidic! I spent fifteen years trying to teach people to reduce the acidity within the body and we can do that through the food that we eat. But, that really takes a complete lifestyle change, when in reality I know realize that we can change very quickly, effectively in the water that we drink.”
“This Kangen Water technology is truly nothing short of miraculous in my opinion, because it really provides three different very important aspects to our health that I find very intriguing. Number one is this machine provides a very high antioxidant based water. The second thing I am really impressed with is its micro-clustering abilities and the third component [its alkalinity], Kangen Water is up to a 9.5 pH.”
