Retail Price $3,980.00
Before I start this Kangen Ionized Water System review, I give a lot of thanks to KangenTM, even though I do not distribute or sell their product. They make a quality product, and while it's a bit pricey, they're the ones responsible for making people aware of the many health benefits of using alkaline water.
Where did the word “Kangen” come from? Some say that kangen is a Japanese word that translates to return to origin. But according to Japan encyclopedia it more accurately means a New Era. Indeed, a new era of of health and wellness because of the potential benefits of drinking alkaline water.
One of the most frequent questions I receive about this machine is:
Why does it cost $3,980?
I would say that when they were the only company in the game $3,980 was worth investing in such an amazing health-giving water machine. Also, since the Kangen is sold through a Network Marketing Company the markup needed to be significant enough for distributors to make a profit. And profit they did! The company continues to lead the world in the best selling alkaline water machines to date through word-of-mouth and a successful MLM program.
While there are many inferior products now on the market there are some very good alternatives that you can purchase at a fraction of the cost.
In this video I will show you a comparison of my Kangen against another high quality alkaline water machine with excellent performance.

My conclusion is that while alkaline water technologies continue to advance and prices are becoming more affordable, the Kangen is still one of the best ionized alkaline water systems. However, not all of us are able to afford the high sticker price. There are other alternatives, though, and I encourage you do more research to find an alkaline water machine that will fit your budget.
