But before we start talking about benefits, let’s have a quick look at the introduction of black water.
What is black water?
Black water is also called alkaline water which is a nutrient-rich beverage and has a higher level of pH value.
And, this is the reason why black water is more expensive than normal water.
Compared to black alkaline water which has a pH value of above 8 normal water has a pH value of about 6. A higher pH value means the black water has more alkaline and less basic.
Black water is rich in nutrients including Magnesium Sulfate, Calcium Chloride, Potassium, etc.
5 Benefits of drinking black water
1. May slow down the aging process
Everybody wants to look young and energetic. Black water is widely popular for its benefits in slowing down the aging process. Some research has been done in this regard but we need more evidence to prove this.
But still many believe that drinking alkaline water helps in slowing down the aging process.
Maybe this is the reason why many celebrities from Virat Kholi to Malaika Arora loves drinking black water that has a higher level of pH value.
Do you know: the pH level is measured on a scale of 0 to 14? A pH of 1 is regarded as most acidic and 14 to be most alkaline

3. Helps in managing acid reflux

4. Helpful for diabetic people
Drinking black alkaline water may reduce blood glucose levels which is beneficial for patients with diabetes. It has antioxidant properties which are also helpful for a healthy body.
5. Beneficial to bone and better sleep
Drinking black water may also help in keeping your bone healthy. Consuming black water is also helpful for better sleep and may improve performance in sports.

For higher pH levels in the water, people are willing to give higher prices. Black water is expensive and not everyone can afford to drink black water on a regular basis.
