I recently stumbled across a brand of mineral water unlike anything I have ever seen. First off its black. Yes black as in the color of the water but supposedly it still taste like water. According to the website:
"Blackwater is our proprietary fulvic & humic acid formula and when added to water, it turns the water black because of the way the molecules bind together, but there is virtually no change to the flavour. Fulvic acid has always occurred naturally in plants and soils. Fulvic acid can balance and energize cell life whose biological properties begin a healing and restorative process. As one of nature???s most powerful antioxidants, fulvic acid may provide all the natural benefits which make antioxidants a highly sought after natural supplement."
It also is supposed to have 77 trace minerals. Here is the link to their site
So what do you all think?

I'm cool with fulvic acid supplements, but I do have a problem with companies that don't disclose their ingredients, claiming their formula is proprietary. I also view the shipping of heavy glass bottles full of liquid as wasteful compared to shipping small lightweight bottles full of capsules.

I always like a source of natural minerals, but I can't really get past the high cost and the fact that it is the Manzo family (from Housewives of New Jersey) promoting this.

i drank this on an empty stomach and felt quite ill afterward, as if i had taken vitamins on an empty stomach. i don't know if the two events are related but they seemed to be. i had no aversion to drinking the stuff too, so it wasn't psychological.
