If you have not heard the news there is a new type of water that is a little on the dark side. It is like water but supposedly much better and the people behind it argue that it should be the staple of every fridge.
This Blk water review looks at this creation from the members of the Manzo family (previously seen on The Real Housewives of New Jersey). It so far has many celebrity fans and made an appearance in the Emmy Prize gift bag. This latest version of H20 is supposedly set to take the water market by storm.
But, unlike many other “new” water offerings, Blk is not a sweetened water product. Also, it is very dark (think Pepsi or stale coffee dark). The minimalist design and packaging is very modern and shows the completely “dark water”. There are some experts who argue that Blk is more of a trick than a gift from heaven.
The main question I’m going to answer in this Blk water review is, is Blk really better than good old fashion water?
What Is Blk Water?
Blk water is a brand of bottled water that is dark in color. This ‘black’ color comes from the fulvic and humic acid that it contains. Humic acid is typically found in soil, aquatic and sediment environments.
Here lies the biggest issue with what my blk water review centers around:the human body does not require humic acid or fulvic acid. So buying this water to simply consume these two acids will in no way enhance the nutritional benefits of drinking it.
Blk Water Wiki
Although Blk looks like muddy water, it isn’t. The dark color comes from the humic acid and fulvic acid that it contains. These acids come from things like biodegradation of dead organic matter, antioxidants, electrolytes etc. According to its website, the Blk water offering is “an innovation of nature and science”.
It is very popular with health conscious people and celebrities. Especially as its owners are celebrities themselves from the Real Housewives of New Jersey. So the bottom line is that even though it looks like soy sauce, it is water. Water that is enriched with supposedly healthy acids for your body.
Blk Water pH Test
Is Blk water alkaline when tested with a ph water test? Yes it is. This is also why it’s able to call itself alkaline water.
As has already been mentioned in this Blk water review so far, the dark color of the water comes from the extra acids added. These acids are the result from things like bio degradation of dead organic matter (hmm doesn’t that just sound yummy?). The claim is that this product provides your body with large amount of electrolytes and minerals. This means that it helps to balance the pH of the human body. Although this is widely disputed by experts. The owners also claim that it’s a great handover cure it’s able to quickly deliver nutrients to the cells in your body. This claims is also disputed as will be discussed in the following section.
Issues With Blk Water
The issues with Blk water are best laid out by Dr Christine Gerbstadt, M.D. She is a a registered dietitian and the author of the popular book “Doctors Detox Diet”. Her arguments against Blk water as are follows:
- A herbal diet provides the same phytonutrients that the black water supposedly has, along with the added soluble and insoluble fiber. In addition, herbal foods fill you up and help you lose pounds.
- There is no quick fix to a bad diet. And nothing transports nutrients better into the cells of your body than real food. On the positive side, blk water will not hurt you and it looks good. But you can get the same from water that is from your filtered faucet.
- The addition of these two acids to water in no way improves the nutritional benefits of water.
- The company boasts that the water contains humus and fulvic acid (in the soil, in sediments and waters). But humans, do not need either fulvic or humic acid.
Blk Water Price
Buying the Blk premium alkaline water infused with fulvic trace miners 16.9 ounce in a pack of 24 will set you back round $40. While a single 16.9 ounce bottle is around $4 (in stores) and $7 (if purchased online).
Blk Water Taste
When it comes to taste, the vast majority of people say that it tastes just like water. This is judging by the hundreds of reviews online. Most people love it, others hate it and a significant proportion think it is downright funny. One Blk water customer says, “It tastes just like water, but it has a dirty aftertaste and it has a really very warm taste.” While many others talk about a “Clean taste”.
The best way to know what Blk water tastes like? Buy it and judge for yourself as we all have different tastes.
My Blk Water Review
For something that most of us can get for free by simply going to the kitchen tap, the market for bottled water is huge. In 2013, Choice reported that the industry for bottled water has the value of $500 million a year. And this number only seems to be growing every year with new brands appearing on the shelves of supermarkets.
Blk is just an example of one of the latest water brands popping up to take advantage of the new health craze surrounding water.
However, there is no doubt in my mind that Blk water is a legitimate artesian natural alkaline mineral water that is fully loaded with humic and fulvic acids.
If you have extra money and want to invest in something that is guaranteed to hydrate you and may have some extra health benefits then you should try Blk water.
