ULTIMATE, CLEAR, or XXX? The ULTIMATE (a/k/a ULTIMATE DARK) is by far the most popular of the three versions. It is also the one Dr. Willard regarded as the best.
Recent studies (as of December 2011) have found that the Ultimate Dark performs as well or better on plants' nutrient absorption rates than either the Clear or old XXX versions when diluted 4 to 8 TIMES more than those weaker versions. In other words, the Ultimate Dark seems to be about 4 to 8 TIMES more effective.
Tests comparing the performance of the three versions on people led one researcher to summarize the differences by saying the Ultimate Dark is so much better "it's not even in the same universe as the Clear or XXX".
For further details on their differences, see the article in our Information area on this site about ALL THREE Dr. Willard Waters Available Here. The XXX is weaker than either the CLEAR or the ULTIMATE, even when mixed at 2 ounces to a gallon as directed, instead of the one ounce to a gallon required for the CLEAR and the ULTIMATE.
Reasons for ULTIMATE Preference: As previously stated, Dr. Willard regarded the ULTIMATE as the finest of his three formulations and most people prefer the ULTIMATE. Why do people prefer the ULTIMATE? Some say because they feel they have even more energy when using it than they do when using the CLEAR (although people using the CLEAR often also say they notice an increase in energy...but when they switch to the ULTIMTE they say they notice even more of an increase in energy). Others say they notice that they want the ULTIMATE more than the CLEAR, and think about wanting some more often than the CLEAR... in some cases going so far as to say they crave the ULTIMATE but don't crave the CLEAR. Some users say either high or low blood sugar “evens out” even better with the ULTIMATE than the CLEAR. And, finally, users with gout (a type of arthritis) say the ULTIMATE works better for them than the CLEAR. And most people using it who have any type of arthritis seem to use the ULTIMATE.
Reasons for CLEAR Preference: People who are sensitive to “just about anything and everything” generally start out with the CLEAR, since there is “less in it to react to”… If using it in one's eyes, Dr. Willard suggested the CLEAR, since hypothetically if the nutrients in the ULTIMATE or XXX came out of solution, they might be a larger particle than would be desirable in your eyes. We have never heard of this happening, but better to be cautious. (There is nothing harmful in the ULTIMATE or XXX... just a concern about any potential problem with the particle size.) And, some people just prefer the color of the CLEAR (basically colorless), since it “looks like normal water”. Others like the ULTIMATE because it does look different than normal water… is a pale amber color similar to weak iced tea or weak apple juice, which makes it obvious to them if they’ve “mixed it up or not”. The ULTIMATE is quite dark in the concentrate but, as noted, is much lighter when mixed for use.
