WaterLiberty is a black mica extract that is claimed to remove heavy metals, fluoride, aluminum, and other deadly toxins from your tap water. In addition to neutralizing these contaminants, WaterLiberty is also claimed to help your body’s aches and pains disappear, while removing carbon waste.
Admittedly, those are a lot of very big claims, which if true, could have a big impact not just in your life, but in the lives of millions around the world without access to clean drinking water. But is this really the case? In other words, can WaterLiberty really help purify drinking water, or is something else going on here?
How WaterLiberty Claims to Work
According to the WaterLiberty.com website, in 1968, Dr. Asao Shimanishi found that biotite, also known as black mica, can help water naturally cleanse itself of contaminants, due to its high concentrations of sulfate materials and natural magnetic properties. However, like many other nutritional supplements we’ve reviewed here at HighYa, WaterLiberty.com claims that this information hasn’t been made available to the public because of “corporate greed, and because of the ignorance of the leaders of industries, and political resistance.”
At its most basic though, WaterLiberty is claimed to activate the oxygen in water, which removes the carbon suspended between water molecules and breaks down carbon waste. In other words, WaterLiberty is claimed to make the contaminants inert, while keeping all the essential nutrients it contains in tact. On top of this, WaterLiberty claims to not only remove toxins from water, but to also neutralize substances with your body and make them harmless within 72 hours.
The product’s website claims that you should add 5-8 drops of WaterLiberty to an 8oz glass of water, or about 5 tablespoons to purify a bathtub full of water. In addition, it’s claimed that you can even put 3 teaspoons of the product into a bucket of water and use it to wash vegetables for up to 8 months. And once all the contaminants have been separated from the water, you can put it through a coffee filter or a normal gravity filter to remove the leftover “debris.”

What Do Other Consumers Have to Say About WaterLiberty.com?
WaterLiberty, also sold as Adya Clarity, black mica extract, and mica water, has received some fairly harsh criticism from NaturalNews.com, who claims that the product, “has been imported into the country as “batter acid,” that is mined near Fukushima, Japan, that it “consists of metals (iron, aluminum, etc.) dissolved with sulfuric acid into a liquid form,” and that “It has been heavily marketed as a dietary supplement for internal consumption, along with completely unsubstantiated health claims.” In fact, the article even goes on to claim that “People who drink the product report symptoms such as black stuff coming out of their ears, and fingernails turning black.” However, we didn’t locate any third-party website that corroborated this condition.
Among customer reviews found on Amazon.com, WaterLiberty appears to have a primarily negative reputation, with common complaints citing failure to work, concerns over the safety of its ingredients (primarily its very high aluminum content), and that the black mica is extracted using sulfuric or hydrochloric acid (we’ll talk more about this in a moment).
For now though, we’ll leave you with a quote from ScienceBlogs: “In other words, there’s plenty of evidence that Adya Clarity can’t do the things claimed for it and a lot of reason to worry about its safety and potential toxicity.”
Can WaterLiberty Really Help “Turn Your Tap Water Into Some of the Most Incredible Water on Earth”?
Considering all of the very big claims made by WaterLiberty, can it really help return your water to a natural state, or is it just an expensive gimmick? Let’s just say there are a lot of unanswered questions surrounding WaterLiberty, some of which include:
First, there is no label provided on the WaterLiberty website, although a third-party site listed the following:
- Iron 2,000 PPM
- Magnesium 400 PPM
- Calcium 250 PPM
- Potassium 200 PPM
- Manganese 20 PPM
However, this same site then goes on to claim that “I contacted Matt Bakos, the owner and importer of Adya Clarity and asked him [about the high level of aluminum sulfate not listed on the label]. The reason he didn't list aluminum concentration on the label underneath iron, he told me, was because "I don't want to."
In fact, this website claims that WaterLiberty is just “a high-aluminum industrial water clarifier. It’s designed to be poured into swimming pools or aquariums, where it causes the coagulation of pollutants (which must then be removed by physical filtration devices).”
Because of the high level of aluminum it contains, despite the lab tests listed on the WaterLiberty website that show the product may help remove some contaminants from you water, we have a great deal of concern related to the health risks you’d be exposed to as a result.
On top of the high level of aluminum, we located a copy of WaterLiberty’s patent application, which specifically outlines that the extract is prepared using sulfuric or hydrochloric acid, both of which (even if diluted) can cause a wide variety of health problems with continued use. In addition, the application states that WaterLiberty should be used in conjunction with a “sterilizing water-purifying chamber and a filtering chamber,” which are 2 different types of filtration devices. This is in direct contrast to the claim on the product’s website that you can simply filter out the “gunk” using a coffee filter.
How WaterLiberty is Marketed
Another red flag that we encountered during our research is that WaterLiberty appears to have been marketed under numerous brand names over the past couple years alone, including Adya Clarity, black mica extract, and mica water (among others), including different methods of using the product, as well as a variety of claimed benefits.
In our extensive experience reviewing products, frequent name changes and different marketing strategies may indicate that the company is trying to hide something.
Other WaterLiberty Concerns
We’d also question just how realistic it would be to use WaterLiberty on a regular basis, since it takes several hours to decontaminate a single glass of water. With this in mind, if you were to take a bath with it, it would likely take days or weeks to decontaminate all the water you’d need, and it would be cold when the time came.
Also, considering the very high price of WaterLiberty, it would be extraordinarily expensive to use on a regular basis.
Finally, keep in mind that according to the disclaimer on the WaterLiberty website, “Results may not be typical nor expected for every consumer.”
Bottom line: Is WaterLiberty For You?
Considering the amount of controversy surround WaterLiberty, some of the questionable ingredients it contains (sulfuric/hydrochloric acid, aluminum sulfate), its frequent name changes and marketing strategies, as well as its very high price, we might recommend exploring additional water purification products outside of Wate
