[Editors Note: We stand on the fence regarding this issue. We saw the product rise and we saw the product fall. We do however believe in giving you the full story.]
(NaturalNews) The Adya Clarity product we exposed last year as being fraudulently marketed as a miracle health supplement has been renamed and is currently being sold across America by over a dozen distributors. (Those distributor names and numbers are listed below).
The product is now being offered under names such as “ionic minerals” “black mica extract” and “magnetic minerals.” As NaturalNews established in previous reports:
• Adya Clarity has been imported as “battery acid” (http://www.naturalnews.com/034005_Adya_Clarity_consumer_alert.html)
• It is mined from ore (rocks and metals) near Fukushima, Japan
• The second-highest metal content in Adya is aluminum, which was omitted from the original label.
• The product consists of metals (iron, aluminum, etc.) dissolved with sulfuric acid into a liquid form.
• It has been heavily marketed as a dietary supplement for internal consumption, along with completely unsubstantiated health claims.
• People who drink the product report symptoms such as black stuff coming out of their ears, and fingernails turning black.
• The fraudulent marketing of the product included claims that Adya Clarity could remove “suckerfish snakes” from a woman’s bowels, or that it was removing metals from one man’s brain because he had black stuff coming out of his ears (among other ridiculous claims).
The Health Canada fraud
Adya, Inc. has claimed its product is “approved” by Health Canada and is therefore “harmonized” for the United States. This is blatantly fraudulent. I actually spoke to Health Canada three times on this issue. In one call, a Health Canada representative asked me if I knew of any Adya Clarity distributors in Canada. They were conducting an investigation into the off-label (unapproved) marketing of Adya Clarity, which was only registered with Health Canada as an “iron supplement.”
But Canadian distribution for Adya has been shut down, providing a convenient situation where Health Canada cannot revoke their NPN number because they are not actively selling the product in Canada. Instead, Matt Bakos, the founder of Adya, claims his product’s Health Canada registration number confers product approval status in the United States — another complete fabrication.
So as long as Adya, Inc. does not actually sell their product in Canada, they can deceptively maintain their Health Canada registration number indefinitely and use that number to misrepresent their product in the United States by claiming it is “approved in Canada.” This fools many consumers who don’t seem to realize that Health Canada was already attempting to investigate the fraudulent marketing of Adya but halted their investigation when Adya pulled out of Canadian distribution.
I have already covered more details of Adya’s Health Canada deception at:
As of today, Adya Inc. lists no Canadian distributors on its website, but it continues to point to Health Canada registration in order to falsely imply some sort of product safety and approval status in the United States. This is, all by itself, misrepresentation and fraud. As Matt Bakos says in the video we’ve posted (see link below): “Believe it or not, our product is harmonized by the FDA to come into the United States.”
Adya Clarity also sold as “black mica extract” and “ionic minerals”
Be aware that Adya Clarity has also been sold as “black mica extract.” In addition, it is sometimes marketed as the following:
• ionic minerals
• mica water
• magnetic minerals
This does not mean that other products marketed as “ionic minerals” are somehow bad for you, by the way. This solely refers to Adya’s product being described or marketed as “ionic minerals” or “mica water.”
Mentally insane promoters
Some of those who sell this product appear to be mentally insane. Watch this video for shocking examples, including the woman you will see at 22:10 (seriously, you will just be shocked at watching this woman talk about her “miraculous” experience with Adya Clarity):
Astonishingly, this irrational, bizarre behavior is actually presented as a “testimonial” for the product! For the record, excessive aluminum consumption is directly linked to mental insanity. This is a medical fact.
Do you believe you were harmed by Adya Clarity?
Many people have contacted NaturalNews and told us they believe they were harmed by Adya Clarity. We are aware than an FDA investigation is already under way, and it may be accelerated if more people contact the FDA with details about their experience with Adya Clarity.
If you believe you have been harmed by Adya Clarity, CALL the number for your state listed here:
More importantly, if you believe that Adya Clarity has been unlawfully sold, immediately report this to the FDA’s online sales investigation division:
There, you will be directed to fill out this form:
On that form, for the “problem or concern” area, you may use text such as this:
“I purchased a product called Adya Clarity, which was marketed as a dietary supplement for internal consumption with claims that it could remove heavy metals from my body and brain, treat arthritis, improve muscle flexibility and other claims. I later found out this product was mined from ore in Japan, imported as ‘battery acid’ and diluted with sulfuric acid to turn it into an acidic liquid. It contains a high level of aluminum which was omitted from the label. Customers were encouraged to take oral ‘shots’ of the product on a daily basis. The website that sold me the product has offered a refund, but the manufacturer continues to import and sell this product. I am concerned about the safety of consumers who may still be purchasing and consuming this. The investigation has been covered at NaturalNews.com, where you can search there for stories about Adya Clarity.”
Be aware that the FDA is already fully informed about Raw Food World’s “recall” and refund effort (www.RawFoodWorld.com), and the information I have received indicates that because of their huge refund effort, Raw Food World is not of interest to the FDA’s current investigations. Rather, the Adya Clarity company is under investigation, according to my sources, as the company continues to import and sell their product in the United States. (Yes, I was contacted by the FDA over this.)
As the editor of NaturalNews, I am already on the record stating that I will cooperate fully with any FDA or FTC investigation into this matter, even though I am a vocal critic of the FDA’s drug industry protectionist policies in general. I do NOT, however, support the sales and marketing of a product promoted for dietary use that may pose serious health dangers to the public at large. That is what has driven my decision to continue covering this issue.
NaturalNews to take legal action against Adya Clarity to halt importation and distribution
We are in discussions with a law firm for the purpose of taking legal action against Adya Clarity in order to protect the public interest and halt to the importation and marketing of Adya / black mica extract. We soon expect to announce additional details on this matter, so stay tuned to NaturalNews for that information.
