I don’t have any real reason as to why I wanted to try this. It looks awful. It’s ozonated spring water enriched with fulvic acid and trace minerals to help regulate the human body’s pH disguised as dirty looking water. Surprisingly, it didn’t taste unusual. I doubt I’ll spend that amount money on a bottle of water again but hey, the packaging is almost worth it.
I’ve been doing research at work, learning about the benefits of Fulvic Acid and Magnesium for a new supplement line I’m designing. Since they are both beneficial to the body, I wrestled myself a sample of the actual products and tried them. The R&D guy said that you can’t taste them if you take them in 12-16 oz of water. Egads, is that a lie! The Magnesium has a distinctly metallic taste, and the Fulvic acid tastes like pond water smells*
*It is derived from the decomposition of humic plant matter.
I tried both in my coffee this morning and now my coffee is a drab olive green / gray color and has an odd flavor. Too lazy to throw it out and start over, I’m instead masking with Butterscotch Stevia…
I’m not sure I’m cut out for this healthy shit. :)
“Cory Ptak got this tattoo, a model of fulvic acid, as a tribute to his graduate work. He worked with the molecule so much that he thought getting it etched into his skin would be less painful than the time he spent at Cornell.” From SCIENCE INK by Carl Zimmer
Have you guys seen this crazy ass water? I feel like such a badass drinking it. It has fulvic acid in it and aparently fulvic acid was made by the gods because it’s stupid good for you. Adding it to water turns the water black and it’s insanity. It just tastes like water though. I guess it’s like the best electrolyte ever and seriously guys, when I drink a little bit of it, it actually feels like it’s hydrating me. More than normal water anyway.
Considering 90% of the things I drink are coffee or coffee flavored or contains 300% of my daily value of caffeine, I’m calling my $2 bottle of water a win.
Plus it has a hidden message written in black on the bottle that you can’t see until you drink it that says ‘Enjoy the Dark Side’. Maybe 'hidden message’ is a bit much… it’s just their catch phrase but it was hidden! You don’t know it’s there because the water behind it is BLACK.
