Put down that eggnog, the holidays are over and it is time to get your body and health back in order. First step, water. Our body is made up of 60% -70% water, and it helps your organs, joints, cells, and every process imaginable, including your metabolism and digestive tract. To know how much water to drink, take your weight in pounds, divide that number in half and that will give you how many ounces you should drink per day.
Now, you can go beyond plain water and dive into water that also has other health benefits. Blk. isn’t really so much black as it is dark brown, basically the color of dirty water. It was a hard concept to swallow (pun!), but after reading about the water and its benefits, I started to warm to the idea. The magic ingredient that gives this water its signature, disgusting look is Fulvic Acid.
The water is from a naturally pure Canadian Spring located in the Rockies surrounded by thousands of acres of mountains and forest, which is also exactly what it tastes like. The Fulvic Acid is from a 70 million year-old source, the only one of its kind in North America.
So, the water is naturally fresh, organic and pure but what makes this water special is what it is infused with. You have probably all heard of free radicals and their link to cellular degeneration, aging, infection, disease and cancers. To stop these free radicals, we need antioxidants, which then combat, slow, and even stop these aforementioned health issues. Fulvic Acid is considered to be a very powerful organic antioxidant. It is believed to increase energy and fortify the immune system by helping the body break down and eliminate free radicals and other chemical toxins. This water also has a low acidity level (pH 9+) and contains over 77 organically complex trace minerals, which helps improve your body’s biochemical function and cell repair.
Blk. sounds like the fountain of youth and that it should be worth its weight in gold, and at $55 for a 24 pack (on Amazon) it nearly is… But, regardless of its cost, if the benefits are what they claim, you would eventually save money due to lower doctor and hospital bills. The problem is that blk. does not state how much fulvic acid or how much of each of the 77 trace minerals and electrolytes are contained in the water. They only report that the water has the “blk. blend of fulvic acid trace mineral complex.” It also states on the bottle that “this product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.” Although, I think that their design and marketing team did a fantastic job with this product (as did Vitamin Water), I can’t help but be a bit skeptical of blk. and its true capabilities and benefits. The dark side should not be feared, but, instead taken with a grain of… fulvic acid.
