Despite the fact that two-thirds of the globe is covered with water, the struggle for safe and clean drinking water has continued throughout the history. The problem is becoming worse each day, with so many sources either getting depleted or being polluted with harmful contaminants like chemicals and heavy metals. Parallel to this, healthcare companies have come forth with various magical products, known to be capable of eliminating as much as 99.99% of impurities in some cases. Adya Clarity, also called Black Mica, is one such product from the international company Adya, seemingly promoting healthy living with the help of minerals.

In 1960, Dr. Shimanishi discovered black mica, also known as biotite, in a site of igneous and metamorphic rocks north of Tokyo, Japan. Initial studies revealed that black mica contained several minerals, and that it was possible to extract these minerals in ionized form. Mineral extracted in this way were believed to be beneficial for human health. For example, one popular demonstration revealed how black mica can turn a filthy lake or pond into safe, crystal clear water within a matter of hours. Following such successful feats, products like Adya Clarity bottled water with black mica extract began invading the market, backed up by the inspiration of many of the so-called nutrition experts like David Wolfe.
In fact, black mica has shown several promising results so far. People drinking mineralized water and consuming vegetables grown using that type of water are said to enjoy better health conditions. The toxin levels of their bodies are also significantly low. In a situation where about 90% of the regular carcinogens are found in tap water, such findings are really impressive, to say the least. According to manufacturers and some testimonials, potential benefits of water treated with black mica include decalcification of the body, elimination of bacteria, removal of teeth plaque, regulation of blood pressure, promotion of hair quality and much more.

Nevertheless, several opponents have put forth undeniable arguments against the genuineness of these claims. According to them, most of this information is just plain rubbish, carefully stitched together to entangle innocent customers in a web of false hope and misbelief. One argument is that, although Adya Clarity claims to eliminate harmful metals from drinking water, the product itself contains unusually high levels of iron and aluminum which can in fact trap heavy metal irons, apart from bringing long-term health issues on their own. The acidity of the product is also in question. Meanwhile, several users of Adya Clarity and similar products have complained that they didn’t feel any better, even after several months’ consumption.

While black mica can have certain rejuvenating effects on impure water, considering it as your ticket to perfect drinking water would probably be inappropriate. As in any other case, it’s better to stick to independent research reports and other unbiased sources in order to determine the actual efficacy of black mica or related products. However, the best way to find this out is trying the product yourself, provided that you’re willing to take the risk.
