this is an interesting INTERVIEW http://www.bewellbuzz.com/podcast/adya-clarity-exposed/. one of the first adya distributors explaining some pretty disturbing facts about adya, Matt and The industry. ADYA Clarity's raw cost is $4.75 - 4000% markup. PEOPLE WERE GETTING fluoride poisoning from it. i dont even know what to make out of people that can INTENTIONALLY FALSIFY LABELS. (by the way he is talking of ways to detox it- kale, chlorella, sauna, exercise,KETTLEBELLS, niacin etc and THEIR marine phytoplankton which i am highly suspicious of since its a single cell organism so another weird product) anyways i can imagine the people that ingested 2 shots a day for a year or two will need some detox. as aluminum deposits in the body and brain.
bottom line they were making $135 a bottle and i cant imagine what the long term effects of this will be
Thank-you for posting the podcast as I hope people are helped by that information.
I appreciate your concern regarding the overall natural product integrity. We are all well aware that 99% of the natural products are mostly sold by persuasion technologies and are not much use to the human being. The people who are diligent enough to eat a full spectrum of raw fruits and stay away from too many plant fats keeping with the 80/10/10 approach are going to have excellent health - provided that they add in a great exercise protocol. The best one I have found (and the least expensive by far) are Kettlebells
When it comes to nutrients, the body breaks down food through digestion in order to utilize the amino acids, enzymes, organic minerals, pigments and EFA's to supply the KREB cycle/ATP producing glucose efficiently to keep everything balanced. When we eat foods that quickly convert to glucose - like bread, potatoes, etc. - we spike the glucose levels and it messes with insulin response and puts us on a roller coaster ride eventually.
The key is to consume highly efficient nutrients that have a consistent glucose production at the cellular level while providing the broadest spectrum of nutrients for all bodily functions. I have always been most impressed with the hard core raw fruit people as they have the most sustainable energy of all the people I have met with the highest levels of health. They are highly active and mentally clear. One thing is certain, a very tiny micro percentage of the population lives this way long term.
Many people have attempted to live the raw fruit lifestyle along the way on and off for periods of time but the reality is, the real hard core enthusiasts that have done this for a decade or more and are fully committed for a lifetime living like this are few and far between. Those that are at this level are enjoying physical vitality most only dream about.
With that in mind, those who have not adopted this totally disciplined fruitarian high active lifestyle can compensate to achieve better than average levels of health if they are wise. The full spectrum of plant based nutrients are vast and really can be a lot of fun when explored internationally and locally.
You spoke about your concern for the Marine Phytoplankton as something wierd. This is understandable because it is mostly not known about in any depth.
Because of my intense involvement with this single cell nutrient over the last five years I can share a few very important facts that may help you understand this more – if you are so inclined.
#1 - None of us would be alive on the earth today if Marine Phytoplankton did not exist. NASA did a study and showed that 50% to 90% of the oxygen in our atmosphere is generated by Marine Phytoplankton spring blooms that grow in different parts of the ocean at different times of the year.
#2 - 95% of the ocean life depends on Marine Phytoplankton as the primordial foundational food.
#3 - There is an estimated 200,000 strains of Marine Phytoplankton with at least 43,000 known strains that have been studied.
#4 - A selected strain called Nanochloropsis Gaditana is a strain that matches the human nutritional profile. it is highly unique as the cell wall is fully bioavailable allowing all the nutrients inside each cells to be fully utilized at a cellular level in the body to produce glucose most efficiently while providing the full spectrum of amino acids, enzymes, pigments, organic minerals and EFA's - primarily EPA and DHA parent oil, plant based.
#5 - Each cell is identical to each other and the selected cell is only 1 micron in size which is 9 times smaller than a red blood cell. This allows full flow nutrition to every cell in the body and is a powerful brain food for command central optomization
#6 - The nutrients inside this microalgae are in the nanoparticulate range and are made from direct sunlight absorption generating a perpetual replication of these cells into the quadrillions time quadrillions. This is known as perpetual food.
#7 - All plants are receiving energy from the sun traveling at 186,000 miles per second and that stored energy is what powers our bodies. That is why fruit eaters who pick the fruit and eat it within 15 minutes of being unplugged from the life source (the tree) get the full shot of life energy plus all the nutrients and minerals in the fruit!!
#8 - The Marine Phytoplankton in Oceans Alive is grown using sunlight is a sealed bioreactor, harvested, spun in a centrifuge and is 100% alive. It is so concentrated it has the consistency of thick peanut butter. The ratio of green plant food nutrients in MP that you can grow on one acre of land is equivalent to 1000 acres of normal organic green food production.
#9 - That living Marine Phytoplankton is instantly suspended in a purified, sea mineral derived trace mineral concentrate that perfectly preserved all of the fresh harvested life energy in every cell. This avoids the damage from freeze drying that you see with all powdered green juices or algaes. The fluid inside the matrix, inside each cell is the elixir that fills every nutritional gap for every cell in our body.
#10 - This is the most practical, innovative and inexpensive way to deliver 300 billion individual cells of sun derived life energy packed nutrients at a cellular level on a daily basis.
This process took decades to perfect and we have been involved in the tweaking to perfection over the last five years. Nanochloropsis Gaditana Fresh Marine Phytoplankton is the most powerful single cell nutrient feeding every single cell in our body. It is the smallest food on the planet and the foundational food for all life. Whether is it marine life, animals or humans on land, everyone enjoys the next level of vitality . Even plants in the garden grow significantly stronger when a dilution of 1000:1 is applied (foliar) a few times during the growing season.
Oceans Alive has dominated the Marine Phytoplankton market over the last five years because it is the only one that has not been processed and damaged.
Other 'so called' Marine Phytoplankton distributors have tried every way to ride our coat tails by claiming their freeze dried powders are better. There is even a company based in Asia with an office in Las Vegas (scam city) that is selling a cheap chlorella powder mixed with a small amount of powdered marine phytoplankton claiming their product is the only one that is any good while everyone else is a scam.
The charlatans are a dime a dozen.
This whole Adya debacle was a massive correction to double, triple and quadruple check before buying into natural products. I personally had to learn a very hard lesson but it was one of the best things that could have happened to me. I was fortunately removed way early on from the debacle and am very thankful. I will be very careful to NOT to lend a hand to just any company going into the future. We have a great responsibility to ensure people have access to nutrients that ‘Do No Harm’ and also provide a far greater value for health than any amount of money spent.
If people are able to live eating fresh harvested tree ripened fruit on a daily basis and stay highly active riding bikes or swinging kettlebells, they will likely not need much else.
For the rest of us who live in cold climates and have difficulty at various times of the year accessing fresh tree ripened freshly picked fruit - we will continue to do the best we can and compensate appropriately.
I was recently contacted by Adya. It seems to me that they are trying to further their business by using links to raw vegan community.
They are doing their part to keep the practice of quackery going in the modern day.
Yes, I will be sure to let my friend know about this. He has been taking Adya for the last year or so. I tried some the other day and it just tasted like lemon juice.
Thank you for sharing å¬)
I never imagined the day might come when I would step in to defend either David Wolfe or Matt Monarch :-)
However, I believe they have both been unwittingly 'conned' - this is on the assumption that Adya Clarity is a complete scam and dangerous even. I believe it is, but then I'm basing that upon my feelings and what I have read, so no personal data to back up my belief.
I looked at Adya Clarity a few months back, when I started getting emails and seeing articles promoting it. It looked like a nature-given panacea for many of our ills, but most importantly (for me) a way to ensure a clean supply of water whatever the global circumstances might be. We all know that after air, our most important requirement is water/hydration, which can be from water itself, or of course juicy hydrating fruits - something that is sometimes overlooked.
I started with a mistrust of David Wolfe and Matt Monarch who were pushing this product, but it looked great the more I saw (although I found Matt Bakos disconcerting, his eyes looked almost drugged, but I know that a lot of people achieve health after debilitating disease and they won't necessarily just magically become perfect shining examples of eternal health!)
So, putting aside my inclination to feel uneasy about it, I asked a simple question from some of those selling this. "Could they point me in the direction of some independent scientific tests showing that Adya Clarity was safe?"
It is now becoming apparent why.
Unfortunately, it appears that many in the forefront of health promotion are driven primarily by the $ signs and then by the health benefits, so don't ask the questions that they should.
I don't doubt that Matt Monarch believed in this product and that he and Angela were/are taking it, but he obviously didn't make the most basic checks. I've certainly been guilty in my life of getting swept along because of a desire to believe in something, so can understand how he might have been able to take the word of a convincing snake-oil salesman.
I've seen a few references here and there to the excessive profits involved in selling this product, but I'd guess that these have been going to the exporters/importers and not to the likes of Matt, who will have been selling on at the usual margins.
I'd guess that those involved in promoting this product are going to have a hard time salvaging their future Raw business integrity, but they can also probably afford to retire into obscurity now! I have read that Matt (and David?) have been refunding pretty much without question those who ask, so it must be hurting financially especially as they have quite probably paid for the shipments already.
A lesson for all of us, the most desperate are often the most gullible and ready to buy anything that promises salvation ... did I hear religion?
did u defend them. i didnt get that. but IMHO they were blinded by greed and didnt care about the product. on a personal level if i was to give people an acid i would feel responsible for their health and very cautious as to how pushy i am when i recommend it. Matt is personally responsible for Adya as he made it popular. none of us has heard about it before he went on a rampage promoting it. to think you know things 100% is foolish but in matts case i dont think foolish is his mistake. i think greed was his biggest motivator. i bet you he became a millionaire after he sold maybe hundreds of thousands of bottles of that. the real market value was $29.99 after import and all.
no person in their right mind can talk to bakos and decide to sell his product by the truckloads. this guy cant put 2 words together and end up with a meaningful phrase.
david wolfe is a whole other issue. i think greed is too little a word for him.
It felt like defense :-) because neither rates highly in my estimation and this would be a perfect time to attack them wholeheartedly.
I also think their motivation is money, not health, especially David Wolfe and I don't think they knew it was as bad as now appears to be the case.
Sure, they were guilty of not bothering to really research this, although I've seen Matt say he looked at quite a lot of information, but he didn't bother to have any independent checks done by the look of it. I can't believe he would have sold this knowing it was toxic, no matter how much he stood to make from it.
I agree with you regarding Wolfe, but again purely from a business point of view it wouldn't make sense to set himself up for fallout like this. It is different to packaging useless product at 1000% profit, knowingly selling poisonous products would be a stretch too far.
I see them both as making money from those who are new to Raw and/or those don't understand what is healthy ... neither are beacons of health and fitness in my book, which should send out alarm signals.
My defense was really that I don't believe they were intentionally promoting a product they knew to be dangerous (if that is proven to be the case).
It would be interesting to know what price they were buying the product at.
The raw cost is $4.95 so not sure what they were making but it was A LOT!
sometimes people know certain things subconsciously and they might be not honest enough (with themselves) to admit it. i am sure thats the case with half of what they are selling on their websites.
i would not put matt and DW in the same category at all. DW is heavy weight. (and no, i am not refering to his weight) i am referring to his unreformed modern day snake oil salesmans techniques.
greed makes you make mistakes. thats why DW was pushed out of his own company by the ex monsanto executive's son. why he was having dealings with that person with no health interests? you answer that for yourself. but yeah greed can blind you and make u do stupid things such as potentially compromise your company.
this whole thing didnt suprise me at all becaus ethat was my original gut level "opinion" of all of them
theres no brain -heart connection there. too much up in the head.
