In 2011, my sister Jacqueline (“Jackie.” left) and I were researching health aids and products to assist our mother with her breast cancer diagnoses. As we began our search we found there were many products and claims for “miracle” health aides to relieve pain and boost the immune system, etc. We did find a few worthwhile products and one of them was fulvic acid.
We began providing it to our mother who was a skeptic on these types of things. After about a week she noticed an improvement in her energy and her overall stiffness had eased up which made us take notice.
We experimented with various qualities and formulations of fulvic acid. While attending a trade show we decided to bottle our fulvic mineral formula as a functional water to see what kind of a response we might get – making no claims. Rather than hide the fact that the water became black we embraced it and the crowds went wild… and that was the birth of blk.
Having been associated with manufacturing for some 10 years, Jackie and I realized we had something special. In the space of a year, we redesigned our products’ packaging and established a broker network in the USA.
Our mother’s character was to help others. We hope to take that forward – Two sisters working together with a product that we feel passionate about!
OUR COMPANY MISSION
The blk. company mission is to be an ambassador of health and fitness, to be an icon of form and function, and to support a healthy lifestyle that is conscious of the modern man or woman. blk. athletes dare to push themselves further than they thought was possible.

WHY IS blk.WATER BLACK?
Nutrient-rich fulvic and humic minerals are naturally dark in color. When added to water they turn the water black, naturally! There are no additional dyes or color added to blk.
Purified alkaline water is the base of blk. We carefully source it from multiple locales, including springs and aquifers in the United States and Canada wherever possible. We use RO (reverse osmosis) water when these are not available. CA source report is available here:Water Quality Report
blk. infuses purified water with trace minerals deep from the earth’s soil, offering an edgy, exotic drink experience.
