I was recently online scrolling on Facebook and I saw a woman post that she was drinking this water called blk.
I recall seeing it in stores before, but I never questioned its color or it’s purported health benefits.
So I want to take some time to discuss what blk water is, what gives it its black color, and if its purported health benefits are worthy enough to buy into.
