The best way to great health is mastery of the simple things.
If you’ve purchased or taken Adya Clarity, it is essential that you read this entire article…
Over the last few months (or even a year or so), you may have seen the somewhat aggressive marketing of a product called Adya Clarity or Black Mica Extract. This is a mineral rich, black mica extract that purifies water and when taken in “super shots” supposedly could remove heavy metals from the body – plus a wide range of other health claims.
Due to the popularity of Adya Clarity, it has received more attention, and it seems like much of the hype that has been advertised doesn’t stand up to scientific scrutiny.
I’m not going to try to rehash all the investigative details here because you can read the progression of this story from our friend and colleague Mike Adams from NaturalNews.com, who’s championed this inquiry.
After you read what Mike has written, I’ll then share some of my thoughts about how to get a refund, how to know if something may not be as good as it claims and how to detoxify yourself from heavy metal contamination.
Recently, Mike was tipped off that the product may be harmful to take and did his own research.
What he found was that it could contain toxic levels of iron and aluminum here:
How to read the Adya Clarity label for proper understanding of toxic levels of aluminum and iron:
And that the approval of the product for Health Canada was only as an iron supplement here:
Finally, Mike broke that top U.S. distributor Matt Monarch announced he will stop selling the product and offer refunds to anyone who wanted one here:
So, in summary, the product may contain toxic levels of metals, it’s fraudulently marketed and its biggest distributor has come out saying that he will offer full refunds and has stopped selling it.
You’re entitled to a refund.
If you want a refund and you’ve purchased this product through Matt Monarch, he and his team will gladly assist you here:
I’m unsure about other distributors and what they’ll do, but if you do ask for a refund and they don’t give you one in full, please post who they are and their website on the blog here and we’ll contact them to ask them why.
Get a heavy metal test that includes iron and aluminum.
Second, if you’ve taken “super shots” of Adya Clarity or even if you have been drinking this product in your water regularly, I would recommend taking a heavy metal test – as suggested by your health practitioner – to see if the product has deposited extra metals into your body. You can take a hair metal test from DirectLabs.com if you don’t want to work with a practitioner, but just know that you are on your own with the results.
Please also wait for the results before you go out and buy any heavy metal detox kit. Depending on your results (if they do show up high,) you may need chelation therapy or high doses of chelating materials. Eating a few bunches of cilantro in most cases won’t cut it.
So, again, while chlorella and zeolites may be effective to some degree, I don’t want to recommend a bandaid when you might need a transplant – if you get what I’m saying here.
Additionally, if you have been taking Adya Clarity and your aluminum and iron levels are high, please feel free to send us a note to tell us about it. (Keep in mind, that hair may be the most effective measurement since it shows exposure over an extended period of time.)
Finally, here’s the bottomline…
You’ll likely hear (or have already heard) a bunch of back and forth noise about this product. Some people are adamantly defending it, while others are very much against it. What’s curious is most of the people defending it are not scientists – most of them are distributors of the product. This, of course, doesn’t mean that you have to be a scientist to know anything, nor does it mean that distributors always sell bad products or are sneaky and deceptive. It just is what it is.
My approach, when it comes to health – and particularly yours and mine – is to lean toward caution. In this case, I think now is one of those times.
It makes no sense to me to take Adya Clarity or even defend it until there is very real scientific proof that…
1. The amount of aluminum is in fact safe.
2. The amount of iron is safe.
3. It actually does anything in the body at all.
4. It can be proven over and over again, scientifically, that any of the claims mentioned are true.
5. It doesn’t have any other unforeseen side effects.
It’s a high bar to clear, but I think many products need to be held to a standard like this. We are interested in nutrition for our own health, so what we take should be tested and proven as safe.
In my opinion, and I’ve held this for a while, you do not need Adya Clarity to be healthy. In fact, with this new information, Adya Clarity might actually be very toxic to you if ingested.
When the product first came to the market, I did my due diligence and was not able to get my questions answered. Recently, as the popularity swelled, I again posed some of these similar questions and I was unable to find anyone who knew something about this product other than the distributors. (As you know, someone who sells something that has little or no third party support needs extra scrutiny – or maybe no scrutiny at all.)
After finding (or not finding) out that nothing had changed from my original fact finding, I decided that I would not promote or endorse the product until there was sound evidence that it helped the body when taken internally.
This has not happened and judging from the fallout from this breaking story, it never will.
And just in case you wanted a little more (with a little humor)…
I have a list of items here that will help you smell a skunk before it sprays you…
1. If a product claims it can cure your cancer, allow you to teleport, fill your empty beer bottles and put an extra leg on your cat, it’s probably too good to be true.
2. If the only information available on a product and its raw materials are coming from the distributors who want you to buy it, keep drinking your green juice and giving yourself coffee enemas until they come up with some real science that outperforms those natural technologies.
3. If you ask questions about a product to the people who distribute it and the get defensive, angry or belligerent, it’s because they don’t know or have the answers to your important questions and their egos are getting very defensive. Remember a time when you were backed against a wall… what did you do? Yep, defensive, angry, belligerent. It was ugly.
4. If there’s not even a study done on mice (I know it’s cruel) about this new and hip product, know that it’s likely no one has ever ingested it before and you’re on your own. You’ve just entered yourself into a clinical trial of unknown length, outcome and danger. In this case, they won’t even give you a stipend, warn you of the possible risks, or have you sign your life away.
Joking aside, I think the biggest issue here is that there are 7 things you can do (before you use “cutting edge” products) that will get you the longevity you desire, remove heavy metals from your body, increase your sex drive, remove wrinkles, help you lose weight and teleport (???)
What’s even better for you is that they’re almost all completely free.
Want to know what they are?
1. Exercise regularly.
2. Eat a high raw, high plant based diet.
3. Eliminate or decrease stress.
4. Sleep well.
5. Make your work your play.
6. Nurture your relationships.
7. Have some sort of spiritual connection and faith.
So go ahead, keep you wallet in your pocket for a while and get started on one of those in that list that jumped out at you – it’s probably the one you need to work on most.
Your question of the day: What do you think about all this? Have you taken the product?
