Why Athletes Drink Kangen Water

Athletes all know how important drinking water is for hydration, performance, and recovery but some are making strides in discovering the importance of the type of water they are drinking and specifically, Kangen Water. Amazing improvements have been seen in athletes who have introduced Kangen Water into their training regimen.

Kangen Water has changed the possibilities for numerous athletes. Pro athletes and sports teams in football, baseball, basketball, and tennis to name a few are turning to Kangen Water because they've seen a dramatic improvement in performance and recovery with little to no soreness or cramping.

The Benefits of Kangen Water in Fitness Are:

  • Overall Better Increase in Hydration
  • Superior Electrolyte Replenishment
  • Stronger Performance
  • Longer Endurance
  • Faster Muscle Recovery

The restructuring of the Kangen Water to be micro-clustered means it is absorbed into the cells and muscle tissues faster than any other type of water. This not only means it hydrates the body at an accelerated rate, but it will flush out lactic acid, produced when working out. Kangen Water also provides natural electrolytes thus improving overall performance and flexibility. 

Ionized. Alkaline. Restructured.

Elvis Stojko

The legendary Canadian figure skater, 3-time World champion (1994, 1995, 1997), 2-time Olympic silver medalist (1994, 1998) and 7-time Canadian champion (1994, 1996-2000, 2002), Elvis Stojko shares how Kangen Water transformed his life.

He started drinking Kangen Water in 2009 with his wife because he was having problems with his Achilles Tendon. Someone introduced him to the Kangen Water machine and he saw a dramatic improvement. He shares this story as a reminder of how far he's come since then.

Elvis Stojko, Giving a testimony on Kangen Water in Toronto, Canada September 2017:

"Just because an athlete is in good shape doesn't mean he's healthy. I've seen a lot of athletes, and this is why I love the [Kangen] water so much, is for this: I have some friends I've competed against, one gentleman taught in Elderidge from the states. He's a really good friend of mine, one of the toughest competitors I've ever had over the years. He's not skating anymore. He's teaching. He had a hip replacement. He's 10 months older than I am, not by much [and] he had a hip replacement. I'm still doing triple jumps, I'm still doing shows, I just finished the CNE run which is a tough run of 36 shows and I feel great!"

Tony Robbins

Anthony Robbins is a world renowned American author, entrepreneur, philanthropist and life coach. He speaks at large conferences with hundreds to thousands of people from all over the world and gives motivational advice on how run a successful business, live a healthy lifestyle, and achieve ultimate goals and desires. One thing he mentions time and time again is how important maintaining an alkaline diet is for the body. 

As mentioned on his website, "In order to survive, your blood must maintain a very delicate pH balance range of 7.35 to 7.45. Any time a pH imbalance occurs and results in acidic blood that is out of this range, the blood becomes unable to deliver adequate oxygen and protect the body from disease... Fortunately, by filling up on alkaline foods, you can actually help detoxify your body, avoid having overly acidic blood and counter the acidic impact of both diet and lifestyle. Of course, the ultimate goal is balance."

Wade Lightheart, World Class Bodybuilder uses Kangen Drinking Water

by Sherry Tingley

He is a world class bodybuilder and one of the world’s premier athletic trainers. He majored in sports science at the University of New Brunswick.

He is a certified sports nutrition advisor. He formulates supplements for various supplement companies and he is a three time Canadian national body builder champion. 

What experience does he have with alkalized and ionized, Kangen Water? In an audio interview with Wade Lightheart he tells the following story. “I’m really excited to talk about my experience with Kangen water. It was quite a story, because I had retired from body building about 4 years ago, after I competed in the Natural Mr. Universe competition. I went on to formulate products and write books. I had no intentions of getting back into competition. What transpired just a few months ago shocked me. I think Kangen water is going to send another shock wave out into the athletic world. Let me explain how that went. A few months ago, I was introduced to Kangen water by Mr. George Gasich. He was here in Vancouver putting on a demonstration about Kangen water and I was invited to attend. Pretty much anything that goes on in the field of health, here in Vancouver, I’m going to hear about. Someone usually wants to know if I know about it or if they can tell me about a new health product. It’s a wonderful place to be. So I went over to check this water out. 

I consider myself fairly knowledgeable about water as I write about it in my books and I recognize its importance. I had my first glass of water and I can honestly say that on my very first glass, I went, "wow!!!" There is something very different about this water. As an athlete for the last twenty years, I know my body pretty well and I knew that I had never tasted anything like this. There was something going on cellularly as the water went into my body. I started drinking the water and watched the presentation. Everything that was said in the presentation totally fit in with everything I had learned in the last twenty years. 

What was interesting about it though, is, I had never realized or wasn’t aware of any technology that could produce the results that were being produced by the Enagic machine. I had been exposed to other ionizers and other technology and frankly I hadn’t been impressed with them. With the Kangen water, I was feeling something different in my body after the first few hours. I went home and the next day I said, “I need to get more of this water.” I went back to the place and filled up a couple of my jugs with water and listened to the presentation again. It was another experience of just getting around the machine and the technology and I wanted to see if the results I was getting was really possible. Changes noted three days later By the third day, I woke up in the morning and I looked in the mirror and thought: You’ve got to be kidding! I mean I couldn’t believe what was happening to my physique. I had started to lose body fat at a rate that was frankly, quite shocking. So I came back again to see the presentation. George was giving a lot of presentations. There was quite a lot of excitement about the Enagic technology, in the Vancouver area. 

Decisions to compete again after four years of retirement I went to the gym and found that my recovery was at a phenomenal rate. I felt like I could run through the walls of the gym. My muscle soreness dropped to virtually zero. After being on the water for four to five days, I was getting such radical results that I decided to do something way out of my comfort zone. I decided to enter in the national body building championship. Again, this just happened to be held in Vancouver just a little over two weeks later. That was a pretty radical decision for me. I thought that this water is doing something so powerful, that I think it can have a real powerful effect in the sporting world. I still wanted to make sure it was not an anecdotal thing or something in my head and that it’s not something I’m dreaming up. I’m going to put my reputation and myself on the line, enter this contest and see what happens. The contest results Now typically to prepare for a contest it requires a minimum of 16 weeks dieting, and one year, if not two that you would gear up your whole training protocol. I hadn’t been training in a competitive format for four years. The chance of me being successful was so (pause) well it was just virtually nonexistent. Nobody would want to take those odds. However, I felt intuitively in the way my body was feeling that I could do it. 

Well, fast forward, I went and bumped up my training for those two weeks, and pounded down the Kangen water and remarkably enough, I managed to win my class, the open men’s under 5’9” and also the junior masters title which is the 35-40 age group. I basically shocked myself, my friends and of course my competitors. Interestingly enough that competition qualified me for the Mr. Olympia in Greece which will be held approximately 10 days. Suddenly, because of the Kangen water, my physique and my life transformed and now I am thrust back into the competition on very short notice. I’m flying off to Greece and I am going to represent my country. I am really proud of that fact and I am very grateful. 

What’s really exciting me is that now I’ve had approximately about 10 or 12 weeks of hard training. To be honest, the results that I have been experiencing have absolutely dumbfounded me. 

  • My recovery factor is through the roof. I have increased my training to two and a half times the volume of what I have done at my very peak, four years ago. 
  • My muscle soreness has virtually been reduced to zero. 
  • My max VO2 (which is how effectively your body uses oxygen) has jumped over 6 points. 
  • My body fat continues to drop. 
  • I also notice a stronger nutritional effect from all my supplements.

Frankly I am shocked that this technology hasn’t gotten into the sporting world yet. Any athlete that is not on this water is really short changing his growth in my opinion. What’s interesting is that I think it might be a little bit like the hyperbaric chambers. Hyperbaric chambers were invented at the turn of the century, but they never were used in the mainstream populous. About 10 to 15 years ago they started being used in a few professional sports and of course it took off from there. "I believe that Kangen Water produced by the Enagic machine is going to be the next great thing in athletic performance."
