First things first, let's talk about pH levels. pH levels measure how acidic or alkaline a substance is on a scale of 0 to 14. For instance, say something has a pH of 1, that would be very acidic. Whereas something with a pH of 13 would be very alkaline.
Normal tap water has a pH around 7, vs. alkaline water that typically ranges from 8-10. According to a recent study, "...pH alone isn't enough to impart substantial alkalinity to water. Alkaline water must also contain alkaline minerals and negative oxidation reduction potential (ORP) ORP is the ability of water to act as an antioxidant. The more negative the ORP value, the more anti-oxidizing it is." These alkalizing minerals can include calcium, potassium, magnesium, and other trace elements.
Every bottle of blk. has a special blend that we refer to as FulvicFusion™. Essentially it's various gut-healthy functional ingredients that provide beneficial nutrients for your microbiome's diverse population. A nourishing combination of plant-based polyphenols, minerals, electrolytes, antioxidants, and potassium, FulvicFusion™ creates a healthy and delicious taste that other alkaline beverages can't even compete with.
How does blk. stack up?
blk. is naturally alkaline, which means it has a high pH level. Our water has a pH level of 8.0+ to help keep your body in check. Infused with fulvic acid, blk. naturally gives the water its unique mineral content. These essential 77+ trace minerals such as magnesium, potassium and iron affect the water's pH level, while making it naturally alkaline. Not to mention the boost of electrolytes and amino acids that are packed in to give that delicious taste you love so much.
Unlike other functional alkaline beverages, blk.'s fulvic acid works with your body at a cellular level to revert damaged cells, promote healthy cell growth and increase the bioavailability of the nutrients you consume. By adding fulvic to your diet, your body will extract more of the vitamins and minerals from the foods you eat as well as other supplements. When you give your body a variety of sources, there's a much better chance that multiple minerals will be absorbed - leading to a better balance overall.
Although we do not take a position on whether alkaline water is beneficial, when it comes to alkalinity we do believe that maintaining your bloods pH level is important. The average pH level of your blood typically ranges from 7.35 to 8. When you maintain your blood's pH level it helps your body continue to function properly. Similarly to our bodies temperature, when it increases to 102 it often means we have a fever or illness. Although it's only a couple degrees off from 98.6 it makes a world of a difference to the immune system. Staying within the range of your blood's pH level ensures your body isn't getting too much acidity or alkalinity. Just like everything in life, balance is key!
When you maintain a higher pH level, it provides a stronger hydration. On average the human body does not fully absorb all of the water it needs. By providing your body with the ability to absorb, break down, and transport nutrients it hydrates your cells on a higher level. When it comes to nutrient absorption, bioavailability is key! Fulvic Acid delivers essential minerals directly to your cells. This allows your body to properly absorb, break down, and transport nutrients that are vital to your health. blk. is rich in various minerals and nutrients, making it easier for your body to recognize and absorb.
So, what does this mean for you?
We all know that water is an important nutrient you consume every day. blk. is made with high-quality fulvic, and naturally alkalized to give your body what it craves.
