There’s a new fascinating range of water on the market. It’s jet black, has a ph of 8.5, and free from sugar and preservatives. It is called MiWATER and being referred to as the ultimate natural hydration beverage because it’s fused with Humic and Fulvic Acids.
Yes, you read that right Humic and Fulvic Acids.
And just like you, I have never taken any humic or fulvic minerals so these words were completely lost on me. My reaction to the words as I read the label on the water bottle was like ‘what on earth is that?’
Well, before I could turn on my Google superpowers, I received a quite a handsome package of this extraordinary product from the manufacturers themselves! How cool is that?!
Information was shared, the water was tasted. I will now share with you what I loved about MiWATER, what Humic and fulvic acid, and why you should buy this water next time you see it on the shelf.
Let’s get into it.
*I received the water in exchange for my honest review. You can read my full disclosure here.
What is MiWATER?
MiWATER is mineral water or “miracle water” targeted at people who live an active and healthy lifestyle. The water harnesses the power of natural Fulvic and Humic Acid with pure Reverse Osmosis water to produce the hydration drink.
‘But Sue, why is MiWATER black?’, you ask.
Well, it’s black because of the fusion of water with Humic Acid.
So What Is Fulvic Acid And Why Should You Be Excited About It?
Fulvic acids are a family of organic acids found in soil organic matter, in rock sediment and aquatic environments. It is increasingly being used as a supplement because of its incredible benefits – Fulvic Acid has even been credited as a hangover cure. (Now we are getting somewhere!)
1. Great for Sports and Exercise
Your muscles produce lactic acid when they run out of oxygen, resulting in discomfort and muscle fatigue. Fulvic minerals consist of 45% oxygen, which fuels muscle activity, reduces muscle fatigue and lactic acid build up and improves recovery rate.
This makes a fulvic acid supplement ideal for general training and high-level sports activity. In fact, many high-performance athletes already look at oxygen supplements to enhance muscle performance.
2. Helps with Food Nutrient Absorption
Fulvic acids are supercarriers of various critical minerals. They may be able to move up to 60 times their weight in minerals into the body’s cells in the process called mineral uptake.
This is potentially significant in combating mineral deficiencies on a mass scale. For example, Iron and Calcium deficiencies are a major global cause of health problems. The foods we eat have become more processed and mass-produced, and many are less nutrient-rich than they once were.
Our bodies need more assistance in extracting these nutrients from our food, which is where Fulvic acid’s benefits come into play. Fulvic acid can be present in some foods such as organic vegetables and blackstrap molasses or can be taken as a supplement.
3. Manages Free Radicals
Fulvic minerals are a highly effective anti-oxidant as they are uniquely capable of neutralising both negative and positive charged free radicals. Free radicals occur during normal oxygen metabolism but can cause serious damage through a process called oxidative stress.
An anti-oxidant’s role in neutralising these free radicals makes it important to heart and skin health and in helping lower the risk of infections, heart disease and some cancers.
4. Sparks Electrolytes
Fulvic minerals are the best electrolyte known to man. Electrolytes help control the body’s hydration and micro-electrical cell activity and good hydration is necessary for us to perform at our best and feel energised.
5. Strengthens bone, hair and joints
Fulvic minerals dissolve silica and carry the benefits to our joints (those amazing absorption skills again). Silica plays a vital role in assisting the connective tissue for healthy hair, skin, nails, bones and joints. The basic end result is that collagen becomes available also, for building stronger joints.
My thoughts on MiWATER
I shared the water that I received from the PR company with a lot of people- friends and colleagues and we all had different things to say about MiWATER.
Before I read up on what fulvic acid is and its many great benefits, I seriously thought this was an energy drink. I don’t drink energy drinks so I probably wouldn’t have gone near the water if I saw the product in the store. Five other people agreed with me on this.
There’s no sugar added to the water so I, of course, didn’t expect it to be sweet, or taste anything other than water. MiWATER tastes like water straight from a spring, in my opinion.
Other people I shared the water with were of the view that the water needed more flavour to it. But I think it would suffice to say ‘different tastes for different folks’.
Now that I am so clued up on the healthy benefits of Fulvic, I definitely would buy the water.
MiWATER is available at Dischem Pharmacies and Wellness Warehouse and retails for R14.99
