This video explains:


All good? Let’s continue…


Enagic is a Japanese company that was founded by Hironari Ohshiro in 1974. For over 40 years the Japan based company has been a leading manufacturer of water filtration machines and alkaline ionizers. Kangen water machines can be found in hundreds of thousands of homes worldwide. They are used to turn regular tap water into pure and healthy alkaline drinking water.

The company is known worldwide. In North America there are currently offices located in: Los Angeles, New York, Orlando, Dallas, Seattle, Chicago and Honolulu. There are also offices in the following countries: Germany, Italy, France, Hong Kong, Mexico, Vancouver BC, Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, Japan, Taiwan, Korea and the Philippines. 

Alkaline water is less acidic than regular tap water. It is rich in alkalizing compounds, such as, potassium, calcium, magnesium, bicarbonate and silica.

It is believed that alkaline water has the ability to neutralize acid within the blood stream and it helps your body metabolize nutrients in a more effective manner, which is better for overall health and your body’s performance.


Enagic offers a few different products, all contributing to health and wellness (see: Zija, LR, and Visi).

There are 6 different categories to choose from on the company’s website, all containing different products.

Machines – All machine sales require a sponsor to be associated with the order, so without one you cannot make a purchase. In this section you will find the following items:

Anespa – A mineral ion water spa. This machine removes chlorine and bacteria from your tap water.

Leveluk JRII – This machine reduces energy consumption and produces 5 types of water, Kangen, Clean, Acidic, Strong Kangen and Strong Acidic water.

Compensation Plan

Although Enagic USA is an MLM company, Associates are involved with direct selling, which allows the company to provide 100% commission. There are no sign-up fees, inventory stocking, distributor fees, time limits or auto-ships required.

There are 3 different parts to the compensation plan:

  1. The Rank System – This compensation plan is designed like many other plan structures for MLM companies. There are 6 levels of ranks to start out with 1A-6A. Ranks are achieved according to how many machines you and your team have collectively sold. When a customer decides to become an Enagic distributor you will be compensated for their sales, which leads to an increase within ranks. The higher the rank the better the income.
  2. The 8 Point System – Distributors are paid from the bottom up. Enagic USA compensates it’s distributors 8 points for every machine sold, the number of points you are paid for depends on your rank, so if you have a rank of 5A you are paid for 5 of the 8 points. The actual point value depends on which machine was sold, the SD501 model for example will give distributors over $200 for every point.
  3. 9 Income Streams – This is where you will see your commissions and bonuses. The income streams are as follows: Educational Allowance, Development Incentives, 6A Group Sales Awards, 6A Achievement Awards, 6A Step-up Award, 6A 8 Level Group Incentive (Monthly & Quarterly), Filter Commissions and The UKON DD Commissions.

There is an opportunity to generate a home based income as a distributor and the commission and bonuses pay well, if you manage things properly you can achieve higher rankings quickly which leads to faster and larger income generations.

A good opportunity to quit your 9-to-5 and work from home? Doubtful.


Enagic USA is Better Business Bureau Accredited and holds an A+ ranking. The products are made of high quality and come with a guarantee. The fact that the business has been operating for over 40 years is a very big pro for those who wish to invest. Becoming a distributor is simple with no sign up fees, although you have to be invited by a current distributor before you can make your initial purchase.

The machines and other products are very expensive with the cheapest machine costing $1,500 dollars. The machines are built to last so it is usually a one time purchase of the machine with the additional products like the filters being bought a little more regularly. The products ship out from the manufacturing offices which eliminates shipping costs to the distributor and space for the supplies.

If you have the money to initially invest in the purchase of the machine then you might be able to make some decent money, however if you cannot sell the item then you will have to call it a loss and use the machine yourself.

With the increase of polluted drinking water there is also an increase in the purchases of Purification and Water Filtration Systems, that being said you have a 50-50 chance at being successful, as many people opt for an item that is less expensive and easier to obtain.

If you are looking for a more sustainable way to make money and actually build a real business, there are better options.

Check this out. It will help you abandon your money-chasing habits.
