"Blk." Water, your thoughts?

Answered on August 19, 2014

So I've been seeing this water brand "Blk." I'm curious, because it seems strange to me to infuse water with "fulvic trace minerals", or infuse water with anything in the first place.

So is there anyone here who drinks it? Love it? Hate it?

does strike me as not very marketable. I could be wrong but I can't see masses of people not having issues drinking black water.

All over Tumblr's fitblrs, or fit blogs that people keep. A few of them buying bottles from places like Whole Foods or even ordering from Amazon.

I'm wondering if someone finally moved past selling people marked up tap water to selling people marked up tap water with dirt in it.

This just boggles the mind. I have been sitting here trying to come up a with post that properly conveys my disbelief. I am at a loss for words.

I thought it was regular water in a black bottle and was shocked to see it is totally black. To me, it tastes like water with a slight black tea flavor. Not bad once you get over the look and not really knowing what their source of the fulvic acid is. Is it humus from a composting bin that is seeped in water? Who knows? It is supposedly proprietary, so we might never know, and that lack of transparency is a little disconcerting. I do think people are very gullible and if they will drink this, without knowing how it is manufactured, then they might as well come up with a product called CNL and explain that it is purified canal water with over 77 mineral and trace elements essential for good health. Get a couple of reality stars to market it and you're good to go.

I saw it on The Jersey Housewives or one of those guido-based shows that I can't remember the name of right now. One of these "Jersey Housewives" was peddling this crap at a concert or something.

The pH level of 9 is kind of weird. There aren't too many things that are commonly eaten or drank that have a pH of 9...

I actually tried the stuff. It was on sale at a gas station and I thought the water bottle itself was black. Imagine my surprise when I realized the water was black, lol. I thought it tasted like crap though - almost metallic. Definitely would not buy it again.

what's more silly is that people buy water infused with sugar, artificial color and crap and pay just as much for it- called "soda," and they think it has some value (or at least don't question it). In this case, it may be a equally absurd, but probably better for your health. There are all kinds of claims about the fulvic acid (mineral complex) infusion but none really are substantiated beyond speculation but at least it is not "harmful," and MAY have health benefits. I bought some just out of curiosity and am drinking it right now. I kind of like it! It tastes like water, but with a different feel, almost electrolytic (like it's making some electric charge in my mouth!)- I think it would taste good after a run. I definitely want to do more research on the mineral stuff.

Sounds great, water with the promise of staining your clothes if it spills...keep it.

I tried it and loved it. A crisp, clean refreshing taste. I think it's sophisticated! But can a non-plant organism derive the same benefits as plants. I guess if you're a couch potato.

I got it from bed bath and beyound, just because it looks funny, it does not taste like anything. I think when you get over the whole it's black water thing, it's ok, but I know even after I took the first sip I was still like this could still be a set up , or some kind of scam. But after I got over the whole that it is really black water I was ok.

Tastes tasteless.
I don't know what I drank.
No negative results, and managed to hydrate my body. Oh well.

The BLK water tastes just like regular water, it has no flavor.
