Adya Clarity

(NaturalNews) There is a lot of conversation on the 'net about Adya Clarity following our publishing of information questioning its composition, labeling and safety (https://www.naturalnews.com/034005_Adya_Clari...).

Readers have rightly been calling for pictures, documents and charts that help explain Adya's labeling. They want to know whether they might be consuming excess iron and aluminum if they have been taking the "super shots" as widely demonstrated in the Adya Clarity marketing videos and materials.

To help answer this, we have assembled a short collection of information for your review.

Labeling and MSDS problems

MSDS stands for "Material Safety Data Sheet." The Adya Clarity "MSDS" is really a sheet on Themarox, which is the raw material mined out of the ground near Fukushima which is then diluted 10:1 to create Adya Clarity. Notice this isn't even an official MSDS, it's just a text document that looks it was just typed in by someone. Where is the original MSDS? Adya, Inc. has not provided one. This is all they provided to us:

Keep in mind that Adya Clarity has been imported as "battery acid"

An "official" MSDS actually looks like the following document, which shows the hazardous effects of aluminum sulfate, which is one of the mineral compounds found in Adya Clarity:

It includes warnings such as:

Hazards: Harmful by ingestion. Irritating to eyes, respiratory system and skin. In case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice.

Here is the MSDS for iron sulfate, which is also found in Adya Clarity at 2,000 PPM:

Note the mention of hazardous toxic effects including:
"Potential Acute Health Effects: Hazardous in case of skin contact (irritant), of eye contact (irritant), of ingestion, of inhalation. The substance may be toxic to kidneys, liver, cardiovascular system, central nervous system (CNS). Repeated or prolonged exposure to the substance can produce target organs damage - Chronic Effects on Humans: May cause damage to the following organs: kidneys, liver, cardiovascular system, central nervous system (CNS). Special Remarks on Chronic Effects on Humans: May affect genetic material (mutagenic)..."

Adya Clarity ingredients

Here's the ingredients label from a 32 oz. bottle of Adya Clarity. Notice how the PPM concentration of aluminum is missing? Notice how's there's no mention of sulfuric acid, the top ingredient other than water? Notice the mention of barium and cadmium? (Do you realize what these are?)

This label also suggests that Adya should be ingested (used internally) with the following language:
"Add 1 teaspoon per 1 gallon of water, stir and enjoy the crisp, clean taste of Adya Clarity water."

Here's the directions label from a 32 oz. bottle of Adya Clarity:

Interestingly, this label says "And while the minerals are clumping these impurities together, they are also activating the oxygen within the water. What does oxygenated water mean? That it is ready to go to work in your body to provide oxygen for you!"

Or, I suppose, you could just breathe instead. Miraculously, human lungs actually extract oxygen right out of the air, and then deliver it to your blood! For free, no less.

To their credit, Adya does caution people on this label with: "Do not use without properly diluting." However, I have the Adya founder (and Adya distributors) on numerous videos promoting Adya to be consumed in the form of "super shots" (taken with no dilution). They even show shot glasses while they're talking about taking Adya shots and how good those "super shots" are for you.

Here's how to convert mg/Liter to PPM:

Why does 1PPM equal 1mg/L of a solution? Here's an explanation:

Metals toxicity chart

Here's a must-see chart on the levels of iron, aluminum, and magnesium that are allowed in safe drinking water (http://water.epa.gov/drink/contaminants/inde...) according to something called the National Secondary Drinking Water Regulations.

This chart also shows the level of these elements in Adya Clarity, along with another column showing the total mg of these elements you will consume in one shot glass of Adya Clarity. A "shot glass" is typically 1 to 1.5 ounces. We are showing it here based on 1 ounce.

Clarified: In the marketing of Adya Clarity, "super shots" are frequently promoted and even demonstrated by distributors. At times, instructions are given that a "super shot" is 1 teaspoon of Adya Clarity in a shot glass. But many other times, "shots" of Adya are openly promoted with no such instructions or warnings, which could easily lead many people to believe that they should be taking "shot glasses" of Adya Clarity. It is exactly this kind of loose play with these recommendations that creates a potentially dangerous situation. To read the following table using "1 teaspoon" doses, divide the "super shot" mg numbers by 6.

Here's an example of "super shot" claims made in marketing videos. Matt Bakos, Adya, Inc. says:

"What we've noticed is in several men in the past, have passed kidney stones with no pain while taking super shots. ... 3 days later after getting on our super shots, passed these kidney stones with no pain. What does this mean? ...pretty much everybody's arthritic, right when they're coming out of the womb these days. What these minerals do is reverse the calcification process."

As you review this chart, keep in mind that the iron in Adya is "iron sulfate" and not free elemental iron. The aluminum is in the form of "aluminum sulfate" and not free aluminum. When these substances meet the strong acid in your stomach, however, that's another story...

• Drinking a "super shot" of Adya Clarity exposes you to 5,450% higher concentrations of aluminum as are allowed in drinking water.

• Drinking a "super shot" of Adya Clarity also exposes you to 6,666% higher concentrations of iron as are allowed in drinking water.

Of course, people don't drink Adya Clarity in the same quantities as tap water, but many people are drinking Adya Clarity straight, with no dilution. Some users actually brag about how they take four shots a day. That's four ounces of Adya Clarity: Over 240mg of iron (!) and over 130mg of aluminum. These extremely high intakes of such metals deserve nothing less than an urgent phone call to your local poison control center.

Additional notes on the toxicity of metals

"All metals can cause disease through excess. Approximately 95% of an aluminum load becomes bound to transferrin and albumin intravascularly and is then eliminated renally [through the kidneys]. Up to this time, no biological function has been attributed to this metal, and, more importantly, aluminum accumulation in tissues and organs results in their dysfunction and toxicity."

"The average person consumes between 3 and 10mg of aluminum daily." (But just one shot of Adya Clarity contains 33mg of aluminum sulfate...)

There are over 2,000 references in the National Library of Medicine about aluminum toxicity. Here's a summary of some of the more interesting ones:

"While the body is able to excrete aluminum in its natural form, the element, like mercury, is toxic to all lifeforms when concentrated in their tissues. No living systems use aluminum as part of a biochemical process. It has a tendency to accumulate in the brain and, to a lesser extent, in the bones. It is considerably less toxic than mercury, arsenic, lead or cadmium, but it appears to be more persistent than any of them. The danger is one that only manifests itself over long periods of time. It is certainly prudent to avoid as many known sources as possible. However, in today’s world, aluminum cannot be completely avoided; it is in our water, our food, the air we breathe, the soil and numerous pharmaceutical products including vaccines."

Action items

I have spoken to a naturopathic doctor, a medical doctor and a biochemist about Adya Clarity. In the strongest words, they gave me the following information to pass along in the interest of public safety:

Action item #1) If you are currently ingesting Adya Clarity, STOP ingesting it immediately.

Action item #2) If you have been taking Adya internally, have your blood levels checked for possible toxic overload of metals, especially iron (and possibly aluminum).

Action item #3) If you are diagnosed with an iron overload, seek medical advice. You can typically reduce iron load by giving blood. Ask your doctor for other ways to reduce iron load.

And keep reading NaturalNews for more updates on Adya Clarity. Several people who sold or marketed Adya are already stepping forward and wanting to tell their stories of how all this could have happened. We will be bringing you those interviews and articles in the coming days here on NaturalNews.
