Fulvic Minerals

What are fulvic minerals?

Organic minerals within the structures of prehistoric plants were deposited onto the surface of the earth, where they were combined with fulvic acids. This continued for millions of years, gradually forming rare Fulvic Mineral deposits.

Why are fulvic minerals important

Fulvic minerals are derived from plant matter and fulvic acid. Fulvic acid is rich in minerals and life-giving nutrients and it is critical to the growth of all plant and animal life.  Once obtained from the best source possible, Fulvic minerals are processed with purified, cool water to ensure the best quality.

Electrolytes

What are electrolytes?

An electrolyte is a salt, specifically an electrically-charged ion.  Our bodies run on electricity. The cells in your body need electrolytes to maintain voltages across their cell membranes and to carry electrical impulses such as muscle contractions to other cells.

Why are electrolytes important?

It’s important to keep the electrolyte concentrations in your blood constant. But our body goes through changes which cause those levels to fluctuate. For instance, when we exercise we sweat and when we sweat we lose electrolytes. That’s why you need to replenish them and stay properly hydrated by taking in electrolytes.

Alkaline pH

What does alkaline mean?

Alkaline is the opposite of acidic. pH is a measurement of how acidic or alkaline something is. The pH scale goes from 0-14 with 0 being the most acidic. Our blood needs to remain at a certain pH to maintain optimal health. That pH is slightly alkaline and right around 7.35.

Why is pH balance important?

Much of the food we enjoy eating are acid-forming: meat, processed foods, soft drinks, sugary snacks, many fruit juices and even milk is acidic. But the body needs to be slightly alkaline so we need to help maintain that balance with alkaline-forming food and drinks. A body in proper pH balance is a healthier body.

Would You Try ‘Blk Water’? October 1, 2012

Those of you who watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey may have seen Albie and Chris Manzo promoting a new product called Blk Water, which is essentially just that – black water.

BevNET Reviews blk. October 1, 2012

BevNET Review: Blk. Water, which is short for “black water,” is, indeed, black water. While there’s certainly some gimmickry to the concept (more on that in a bit), the product is black from the addition of fulvic acid. Fulvic acid, which is produced by the biodegration of dead organic matter (sounds appetizing, right?), adds a variety of trace minerals and electrolytes while also helping to balance the human body’s pH levels. We’re not going to sugar coat it though — drinking black colored water takes some getting used to. And this stuff is very dark — like flat Pepsi or old coffee — to the point where first time drinkers will likely be shocked that the bottle itself is actually clear. For us, it didn’t take too long to get past our hangups, but it would take a lot to fully convince our senses that this product is the same as (or better than) regular bottled water. The branding and packaging are the strongest asset of the product, with minimalist design giving the product a hip feeling. The use of a label (rather than a painted bottle) hurts its premium positioning, but we’re otherwise fans of how it looks. Plus, when you drink half the bottle, a secondary message (which is printed in black) is revealed. Ultimately, their attention to detail combined with the fact that black water is not your typical bottle of water makes Blk. Water a very memorable product. We could definitely see this brand building a loyal fan base, especially if they (or someone else) can build some awareness regarding the benefits of fulvic acid.

There’s Something in the Water at the Fancy Food Show October 1, 2012

choice is that? Yesterday at theFancy Food Show, a massive food product trade show from the National Association for the Specialty Food Trade at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, the future of water was on display–and it turns out to be a mighty diverse future. We sampled some of the more unusual varieties on hand:

Black Water

Normally, black-colored water is a sign you should not drink it, but this one claims to have some health benefits. Blk. water is infused with fulvic trace minerals, which “transport nutrients directly into your cells” and turn the water dark without dyes or coloring. Perhaps even more bizarre: The product is represented by Albie andChristopher Manzo, sons of one of the stars of Real Housewives of New Jersey. At last year’s Fancy Food Show, crews from the Bravo show filmed several of the housewives checking out the product on the exhibit floor.

Albie Manzo and Chris Manzo behind ‘blk’ Black Water Featured ‘Today Show’ October 1, 2012

Co-stars on ‘The Real Housewives of NJ’ Albie and Chris Manzo (sons of ‘The Real Housewives of NJ’ Caroline Manzo) have introduced ‘blk’ or Black Water to the market. The Black Water was featured on ‘The Today Show’ Thursday morning and has also been featured on ‘The Real Housewives of NJ.’

The history of black water, ‘blk’ was invented by a Canadian mother’s children after she had been diagnosed with breast cancer and the traditional treatments of radiation and chemotherapy weren’t bringing the results that were needed. While scouring the internet in search of alternative treatments they began to read about fulvic acid. They mixed the fulvic acid with natural spring water and after drinking it, their mom began to feel better and so she kept on drinking it. With this kind of success, the kids went ahead and bottled some up, showing it at a food show where it was discovered by Albie and Chris. After deciding to market it, the name was changed from Black Water to the current ‘blk’ and is now available in many stores as well as online at Amazon.
