Hypochlorous Acid: an ideal wound care agent

Wounds. 2014 Dec;26(12):342-50.

Chronic wounds and the infections associated with them are responsible for a considerable escalation in morbidity and the cost of health care. Infection and cellular activation and the relation between cells are 2 critical factors in wound healing. Since chronic wounds offer ideal conditions for infection and biofilm production, good wound care strategies are critical for wound healing. Topical antiseptics in chronic wounds remain in widespread use today. These antiseptics are successful in microbial eradication, but their cytotoxcity is a controversial issue in wound healing.


The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of stabilized hypochlorous acid solution (HOCl) on killing rate, biofilm formation, antimicrobial activity within biofilm against frequently isolated microorganisms and migration rate of wounded fibroblasts and keratinocytes.


Minimal bactericidal concentration of stabilized HOCl solution for all standard microorganisms was 1/64 dilution and for clinical isolates it ranged from 1/32 to 1/64 dilutions.


All microorganisms were killed within 0 minutes and accurate killing time was 12 seconds. The effective dose for biofilm impairment for standard microorganisms and clinical isolates ranged from 1/32 to 1/16. Microbicidal effects within the biofilm and antibiofilm concentration was the same for each microorganism.


The stabilized HOCl solution had dose-dependent favorable effects on fibroblast and keratinocyte migration compared to povidone iodine and media alone. These features lead to a stabilized HOCl solution as an ideal wound care agent.”

Not all water Ionizers are created equal. How many water’s do other manufacturers machines produce?



Comparing Kangen Water Ionizer Models | Enagic SD501

Comparison of Enagic SD501 and LeveLuk K8 Models


The best possible water we can drink to achieve and maintain good health is alkaline water made by a Kangen Water® ionizer.

Did you know that of all the different brands of water ionizers, only one has qualified for the prestigious gold seal certification by the Water Quality Association? That brand is Enagic.


What Is Enagic?

Enagic has been the leader in the water ionizer industry for 40 years. Enagic is known for quality and results. In Japan where Enagic has manufactured water ionizers for all these years, it is the Enagic Kangen Water® ionizers that are found in the hospitals and health clinics throughout Japan, and the Enagic LeveLuk SD501 Kangen Water® ionizer model is a registered medical device.

The term Kangen Water® is a registered trademark of Enagic USA. Enagic manufactures a remarkable line of Kangen Water® ionizer machines including countertop models, small portable units, and an under counter model.


Enagic SD501

SD501P Kangen Water Ionizer

For many years, the Enagic SD501 model was the flagship water ionizer of the Enagic product line, and has been the industry leading ionizer. There are three versions of the SD501 including the standard countertop and Platinum models that you see pictured here, as well as an under counter version. The Enagic reputation of quality and results has been established and sustained year after year with the remarkable quality of Kangen Water® produced by the SD501 model. Any family looking for the highest quality water purification system for their family’s drinking water would be very pleased with the results this workhorse of a water purifier produces. Until now there was nothing better.

When it seemed that nothing better could ever be made, Enagic has decided to do itself one better.

Introducing the new Enagic LeveLuk Kangen 8 Water Ionizer.

This new machine, affectionately called “K8”, is an amazing piece of equipment for the health-conscious kitchen. Assuming you already know somewhat about water ionizers, and specifically the SD501 model which is regarded to be the most advanced ionizer, let’s compare how the K8 stacks up against the SD501.

Video to compare Enagic SD501 and Enagic K8


The Comparison

The SD501 has seven solid titanium electrolysis plates that are dip-coated in platinum. The K8 has eight of these plates, each of which are the same size and specification as those that made the SD501 famous.

The eighth plate in the K8 gives the K8 a total electrolysis surface area of 560 square inches compared to the SD501’s 490 square inches.

Because the additional plate gives the K8 substantially greater antioxidant producing power, it maintains the strong ORP (Oxidative Reduction Potential) and pH level of the SD501 while producing the 9.5 pH Kangen Water®, but at 150% of the speed of the SD501 throughput rate.

Even though the K8 produces more antioxidant power, it does so with less electricity, using only 200 watts compared to the 230 watts required by the SD501. This was achieved by designing a more efficient electrical path.

Of course the K8 also makes all 5 types of ionized water made by the SD501 including 2.5 pH water which kills germs on contact, and the 11.5 pH water which emulsifies grease and oil on contact.

Travelers will appreciate the K8 dimensions and weight. The K8 weighs in at 3 pounds less than the SD501.

The K8 ionization plates are cleaned while the water drains after each use, therefore eliminating the cleaning cycles required by the SD501 and other water ionizer models.

One feature that everyone will find particularly helpful on the K8 is the intelligent water filters which have built-in chips to track water usage through the filter rather than through the machine. The machine reads the chip from the filter and provides the user with the amount of life remaining in the filter.

One feature that is particularly distinguishing and useful to many people, is the ability for users to adjust the pH setting to accommodate variations in source water pH.

Alkaline Water Ionizers in Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico Alkaline Water Ionizers

If you live in Puerto Rico and are looking for the best home water purification solution, we have the solution

Alkaline Water Ionizers

Water ionizers are quickly becoming popular around the world.  Water ionization became popular in Japan over the past 40 years, and now the rest of the world is learning about the benefits of water ionization for home water purification systems.

Water Ionizers Produce Purified Alkaline Drinking Water

People in Puerto Rico, like people everywhere, need to balance dietary pH intake. Far too often, we consume foods and drinks that are high in acidic pH.  Exercise contributes to acidic buildup by producing Lactic Acid.  As the body accumulates acid, it becomes important to consume an adequate quantity of alkaline pH in one’s diet.  Trying to impact your body’s pH by changing the foods you eat can produce less than desired results because of the small quantity of food you can change from acidic to alkaline relative to the order of magnitude of all you consume in your diet including the liquids you consume.  Alkaline Water Ionizers produce a significant quantity of dietary alkaline pH to effectively and easily help balance dietary pH intake.

High Quality Water Ionizers vs the “Others”

Research shows that only high quality water ionizers produce the highly energized water that retains properties long enough to produce the desired benefits in the body (see Dr. Corinne explain how only large solid plates with high wattage continuous transformer based power produce results…).

Kangen Water Machines

If you live in San Juan, Guayama, Ponce, Mayaguez, Faro De Cabo Rojo, Aguadilla, Arecibo or any other city in Puerto Rico, you should be drinking the best quality water in order to achieve the best possible health.  Ionized Water is one thing people are searching for more all the time as they learn about various water purification systems and understand how water produced by an alkaline water ionizer compares with other purified water options.

Our high quality Alkaline Water Ionizers are available in Puerto Rico.  Please contact us for a local water purification systems representative in Puerto Rico.  Consider joining our team and become one of the first distributors in Puerto Rico for our highly optimized water technology that should be found in every family’s home.
