What Are Detox Drinks?
Detox drinks refer to the beverages that are consumed to eliminate various toxins from the body. Detox drinks purportedly eliminate all toxins and cannot be traced, and are often used before drug tests. Detox drinks have been designed to help users pass marijuana (THC), cocaine, opiates, amphetamines, barbiturates, and nicotine drug tests.
Most detox drinks are based on a condensed antioxidant formula, which thoroughly terminates the unwanted drug traces.
Why do people use a detox drink?
Any company has the right to conduct an annual or biannual drug test, and some major corporations choose to do the tests even more often in order to make sure their employees are not using illicit substances. Some of the employees try to find new ways to cheat the drug tests making detoxification drinks an attractive market for various manufacturers.
Though marijuana is believed to be the most harmless drug that can show up on a drug test by some, it is also the one that most commonly stands between people keeping or getting the job they want. The chemical responsible for the euphoric high in marijuana users is called THC. It stays in the body and will show up on drug tests much longer than other substances because it is fat-soluble, meaning it gets stored amongst the various fatty tissues surrounding different organs in the body. Once it is settled, it slowly begins releasing the chemical, which makes it detectable in the system for longer.
To honestly detox the body from all traces of marijuana on own can take up to a month. This obviously doesn’t work if one’s job has scheduled a drug test within the next week or so, as is often the case.
Detox products claim to mask the THC in the system helping to pass the test, but it is important to remember that the body still needs to go through its natural process to completely remove the drug through the system. So basically, just because one passes a drug test using a detox product does not mean the drug is no longer present in the body.
Most popular detox drinks
Today, a plethora of detox drinks exist. The following is a list of some of the most popular beverages that claim to eliminate various toxins before a drug test.
Clear Choice Rescue Cleanse
Some people believe that this is the most effective detox drink that can be purchased at the moment. A major upside is an actually palatable taste that makes it easier to deal with. For it to be effective 48 hours of abstinence from cannabis must be planned before drinking Clear Choice, according to the manufacturer. The weight determines which size is needed to drink.
The manufacturer claims, that Clear Choice’s sole purpose is to help to pass a drug test, so if one follows the instructions, the chances of passing are very high.
The Ultimate Detox Cleansing Drink
Another product that claims to detox the body before a urine drug test is called the Ultimate Detox Cleansing Drink. This product removes toxins from the urine, according to the manufacturer’s words. However, the only foolproof way to have a clean urine is to abstain from illicit substances.
This product contains tablets, fibers, and liquids. The combination of these three ingredients is what helps user to detox, according to the manufacturer.
One Shot Concentrate
One Shot Concentrate is the most common detox drink in addition to Toxin Rid. One Shot claims to help the body eliminate almost every single toxin left behind after a 10-day detox program.
Homemade Detox Drinks
5-Day THC Detox
This five-day detox program is based on nutrition, exercise, and supplements. A well-balanced diet, plenty of water, vitamins, and regular exercise are advised to get rid of the THC from the body.
The primary focus is on preventing THC from entering the bloodstream. To do so, one should eat fatty meals and consume plenty of carbohydrates. When it comes to drinks, one should drink coffee and tea. These drinks are diuretics, which means they stimulate urine production. This way, THC will faster exit the system.
If one is trying to detox from drugs, one should drink smoothies with plenty of berries, spinach, avocado, and grapefruit. All of these ingredients are antioxidants, which will help to get rid of the toxins. One should keep in mind that if one is trying to pass a drug test, homemade remedies are not very reliable. They only serve as an additional tool to be used alongside legitimate detox products.
Lemon juice is not as effective as products specifically designed for preparing for the drug test, but it has been known to yield the desired effect. Lemon is incredibly acidic, and just as it can be used for cleaning purposes around the house removing stains and such, it can do the same in the organism. It flushes out unwanted toxins from the body, but it does require a lot of drinking.
The best way to pass a drug test is to avoid drugs in the first place completely. Be careful with detox drinks, because in most cases, they are not effective enough on their own to pass a drug test.
