Reduction of pesticide residues on fresh vegetables with electrolyzed water treatment.

Degradation of the 3 pesticides (acephate, omethoate, and dimethyl dichloroviny phosphate [DDVP]) by electrolyzed water was investigated. These pesticides were commonly used as broad-spectrum insecticides in pest control and high-residual levels had been detected in vegetables. Our research showed that the electrolyzed oxidizing (EO) water (pH 2.3, available chlorine concentration:70 ppm, oxidation-reduction potential [ORP]: 1170 mV) and the electrolyzed reducing (ER) water (pH 11.6, ORP: -860 mV) can reduce the pesticide residues effectively. Pesticide residues on fresh spinach after 30 min of immersion in electrolyzed water reduced acephate by 74% (EO) and 86% (ER), omethoate by 62% (EO) and 75% (ER), DDVP by 59% (EO) and 46% (ER), respectively. The efficacy of using EO water or ER water was found to be better than that of using tap water or detergent (both were reduced by more than 25%). Besides spinach, the cabbage and leek polluted by DDVP were also investigated and the degradation efficacies were similar to the spinach. Moreover, we found that the residual level of pesticide residue decreased with prolonged immersion time. Using EO or ER water to wash the vegetables did not affect the contents of Vitamin C, which inferred that the applications of EO or ER water to wash the vegetables would not result in loss of nutrition.

Kangen Beauty Water

Kangen Beauty Water 

Enagic’s beauty Water is a mildly acidic water with a pH 6.0 that is made by pushing the button on unit. Beauty
water is dispensed from the top flexible hose. Alternately,it can be collected while making alkaline Kangen drinking
water; when you push the blue Kangen Water® button and the alkaline drinking water is coming out of the top flexible
hose, you can collect Beauty Water from the grey secondary hose that runs from the bottom part of the unit).

BeautyWater
Beauty water can be used frequently as a spray throughout your day, frequently used for best results. While internally
your body is healthiest if it is alkaline, your skin pH is ideally around pH 6.0. Beauty Water makes your skin feel soft
and moisturised like you have used lotions or oils; it makes your skin feel hydrated. When used instead of a conditioner
after shampoo, it tightens your scalp, reduces tangles and brings a radiant shine to your hair. in fact, many users report
significant hair re-growth.
Beauty Water is astringent and oxidative, making it beneficial for the overall health and beauty of your skin and hair. The results of using it are similar to those of expensive toners from exclusive department stores and beauty salons. It tightens, softens, and provides an environment for healing which is excellent for many common
skin conditions.

Should you require warm Beauty Water, we recommend slowly heating it on a stove/cooker to
the desired safe temperature. Collect in a bowl or in a spray bottle and massage or spray over your body
after a bath or shower. Your skin can feel tight and dry after showering; using Beauty Water in this way
leaves your skin hydrated and feeling like you have used lotion. It also closes all your pores. For men, it’s
great to use as a toner after shaving – leaving your skin soft and feeling good.
Mix Beauty Water with essential oils, spray on skin to hydrate, reduce lines & wrinkles,
even skin tone and produce younger, healthier skin. Spray it on, splash it on, soak in it,
get it on your skin when you want to have the best looking skin around!

Groom pets with it– it makes their fur soft and shiny

Electrolyzed Hydrogen Water – Radiation Protection

Electrolyzed Hydrogen Water -Radiation Protection

Hydrogen as a New Class of Radioprotective Agent

It is well known that most of the ionizing radiation-induced damage is caused by hydroxyl radicals (·OH) follows radiolysis of H2O. Molecular hydrogen (H2) has antioxidant activities by selectively reducing ·OH and peroxynitrite(ONOO-). We firstly hypothesized and demonstrated the radioprotective effect of H2 in vitro and in vivo, which was also repeated on different experimental animal models by different departments. A randomized, placebo-controlled study showed that consumption of hydrogen-rich water reduces the biological reaction to radiation-induced oxidative stress without compromising anti-tumor effects. These encouraging results suggested that H2 represents a potentially novel preventative strategy for radiation-induced oxidative injuries. H2 is explosive. Therefore, administration of hydrogen-rich solution (physiological saline/pure water/other solutions saturated with H2) may be more practical in daily life and more suitable for daily consumption. This review focuses on major scientific and clinical advances of hydrogen-rich solution/H2 as a new class of radioprotective agent.

Radiotherapy

Although a remarkable progress about the application of hydrogen as a radioprotectant has been made in past 6 years, there were only a few clinical data. Ki-Mun Kang et al. performed a randomised, placebo-controlled study on 49 patients receiving radiotherapy for malignant liver tumour. Hydrogen-rich water was produced by metallic magnesium (Mg) [Mg + 2H 2 O = Mg (OH)2+ H2 ], and the final concentration of H2 reached to 0.55-0.65 mM. Results showed that daily consumption of hydrogen-rich water for 6 weeks reduced reactive oxygen metabolites in the blood and maintained blood oxidation potential of these patients. Quality of life (QOL) scored during radiotherapy were improved in patients with hydrogen-rich water compared to those with placebo. This study did not find differences in tumor response to radiotherapy as application of hydrogen-rich water.

Cooking With Kangen Water

Cooking With Kangen Water
  Food Preparation – Cleaning, Disinfecting, Soaking
  • Washing fresh fruits, vegetables and rice with 11.5 pH Strong Kangen Water will remove oil-based pesticides and herbicides that tap water cannot remove.  It eliminates the need for expensive “fruit & vegetable wash” solutions.  It also eliminates the absorption of chlorine into the fruits and vegetables.
  • You could instead try removing pesticides with Veggie Wash, but (a) it is expensive per ounce and (b) do you really think a quick spray is better than a ten minute deep soak of 11.5?  Try it for yourself!
  • Fresh fruits and vegetables are also sterilized in 2.5 pH Strong Acidic Water which kills food borne bacteria, staphylococcus, salmonella and E-coli… even staph!
  • All cooking utensils, surfaces and cutting boards can similarly be disinfected.   This 2.5 pH water is used in over 200 Japanese hospitals to disinfect everything… even surgical instrument
  • Pesticide removal and disinfection also doubles shelf life, reducing spoilage waste.
  • Soaking red meat and poultry for 20 to 30 minutes – and fish for 7 to 10 minutes – will draw out excess blood, reducing foul or strong odor.
    • Anthocyanins:Clean certain fruits and vegetables with 5.5 pH water to retain their vibrant color if they contain anthocyanins such as asparagus, cherries, plums, grapes, strawberries, cabbage, eggplants, and soy beans.

 Men’s Health

There’s a lot of information out there about Kangen acidic water uses for women but we men seem to have been left out of the conversation.   In this series of articles I’ll be covering some of the most common ways that men can benefit from using Kangen acidic water.

We’ll start with the most obvious application of Kangen acidic water for men – shaving.

 

Nicks and cuts happen.  Sometimes the bleeding stops right away, sometimes it doesn’t.  Rinsing nicks and cuts with Kangen acidic water stops the bleeding faster and kills bacteria that can leave you with tell-tale signs of a shave gone wrong.

You can rinse the area with acidic water from your water ionizer or apply it as a compress.  Using a small spray bottle that produces a fine mist will give you one more “blast” of protection against infection before you leave the house – or after a workout at the gym – to prevent infection or irritation from airborne bacteria and sweating.

When used as an after shave, Kangen acidic water effectively rinses away trace residues from soaps or shaving cream and encourages the pores to close.  Most after shaves contain alcohol which can sting or cause irritation.  Depending on how close the shave, you might feel a slight tingle but Kangen acidic water won’t irritate the skin like many other products.

Some men develop dry skin because as a result of shaving daily and many now use moisturizers to address the problem.  Ionized acidic water actually helps prevent dry skin.  If you are one of those men who use a moisturizer, you’ll find that your skin actually absorbs it better and leaves less oily residue.  If your wife or girlfriend has been using acidic ionized water on her skin, that’s a secret she may be keeping from you….

Blemishes

No matter how old you get, every once in awhile you’re going to have some sort of bump or blemish show up on your face.

Treating the area with Kangen acidic water attacks these blemishes in a couple of ways.  First, it helps clean the pore that is building up with excess oil, dirt or bacteria.  Next, it helps kill the bacteria that is likely causing the blemish in the first place.

Rinsing your face in the morning and evening with acidic ionized water can help prevent blemishes and bumps from forming in the first place.  Treating them with compresses, additional rinses or by spritzing the area with Kangen acidic water throughout the day will help them heal faster and prevent them from becoming so obvious that they seem to enter a room before you do.

Hair and Scalp

Another little secret your wife or girlfriend may not have told you about is how Kangen acidic water enhances shine, texture and manageability of hair.

A quick rinse with the water after you shower helps remove any residue from shampoo and conditioners and helps close the hair follicles.  It leaves your hair softer, shinier and more manageable.

If you battle dry, itchy scalp or dandruff, a post-shower acidic rinse can help too.  Just like the water helps with dry skin on your face, it can also treat your scalp – removing dead skin and bacteria, creating a protective acidic barrier and toning the skin to help reduce and eliminate itching and flaking.
