Greek-American Marina Fakiris Presents Electrolyzed Reduced Kangen Water

ASTORIA – Greek-American Marina Fakiris, with roots from Chios, presented the electrolyzed reduced Kangen Water at an in-person event at Victory Sweet Shop in Astoria on May 18.

During the presentation, Fakiris noted the many toxins in our environment, in our foods and water, and highlighted the benefits of anti-oxidants and alkaline water, i.e. water with a high pH level. She mentioned many brands of water available now which claim a high pH level but are not as high as that of Kangen Water which is produced by alkaline ionizer and water filtration machines made by the Japanese company Enagic. The system can be installed in a person’s home to make tap water alkaline.

Fakiris also spoke about her own health struggles and how she was introduced to Kangen Water and has used it since last March. She told The National Herald that she cannot make health claims about the water since she is not a healthcare professional, but she did mention how acidic foods and water as well as inflammation can contribute to many health problems. 

While many drink bottled water as an alternative to tap water, Fakiris pointed out that the pH levels are not much different from tap water and the plastic bottles are problematic as well for people’s health and also the environment.

Kangen Water is also a cleanser, Fakiris noted, pointing out that she uses it to replace harmful chemical cleaning products and it can be used to rinse fruits and vegetables. She said that she can taste the difference when fruits and vegetables have been rinsed in tap water or with Kangen Water.

Following the presentation, Fakiris answered questions from those in attendance some of whom had tried other alkaline waters before and who were interested in learning more about Kangen Water.

The demonstrations will continue at Victory Sweet Shop on Tuesdays at 7 PM through the end of the summer, Fakiris told TNH. She also noted that the Greek restaurant, To Steki tou Laki, located in Whitestone, will also be using Kangen Water.
