Being a mod on a drug user forum certainly has its perks. You get access to these insanely creative ideas that people come up with and claim that it can help beat a drug test. I must have trashed hundreds of such ‘self -created’ methods by wannabe drug-gurus. Some of these were dangerous to be honest.
On one occasion, I never heard again from the guy who was going to try it on himself.
Time and again, I have advocated the use of tried, tested and proven methods, most of which are neither difficult nor dangerous. But I still find people veering towards the unproven methods like the ‘Niacin flush drug test method’.
I don’t know where or how this niacin drug test method originated. But the method recommends using Niacin, a type of Vitamin to flush drug metabolites from the body.
While Vitamins in the right doses can do you a whole lot of good, the volume of pills that you’d have to pop for this to work is too high. And hence, it is riddled with the risk of side effects.
How does the niacin drug test method supposed to work
For the uninitiated, Niacin is a B-Complex Vitamin. It is also called Nicotinic acid and it is used both, as a prescription drug as well as a supplement for cardiovascular conditions, particularly high levels of LDL cholesterol. In some cases, healthcare providers may also recommend using Niacin for reversing atherosclerosis.
Those are the medically and scientifically proven benefits of the vitamin.
Now, for the unproven claims that have made Niacin quite popular among bodybuilders, fitness enthusiasts and weed users!
There have been unconfirmed reports that claim that Niacin may help in converting stored body fat cells into energy. Since THC-COOH, the main drug metabolite of Marijuana is stored in body fat cells, some genius came up with the theory, that this was the safest way to flush out drug metabolites from the system.
What are the risks of the Niacin flush drug test method?
Niacin is never prescribed alone for any medical condition because it can only be consumed in low doses which are not sufficient enough for it to be effective. For cardiovascular conditions, it is clubbed with other drugs like statins.
The claims of Niacin being a fat loss agent is unverified and is propagated by the health supplement industry which is rife with speculation rather than proven facts.
Also, if that were the case, then any other fat burner like Garcinia or thermogenic fat burners would flush out drug metabolites too, wouldn’t they? Some of the serious side effects of a Niacin overdose include liver damage. Even in mild doses, it can cause irregular heartbeat and severe abdominal pain.
How many niacin pills to pass a drug test?
Like any other self-made method, there seem to be many versions of the Niacin flush drug test.
Some people claim that the minimum recommended dosage is 1000 mg of Niacin for at least four to five days leading up to the day of the test. Others claim that even 500 mg taken 6 hours before the test will be effective.
There are some posts that claim the niacin drug test method require 1000 mg of Niacin per day for four to five days before the test. There are another bunch of posts that advocate using just 500 mg of Niacin on the same day as the test.
And people actually fall for that. If it were so easy to clear drug tests, then you wouldn’t have hundreds of products clamoring for your attention.
So, rather than wondering how many niacin pills to pass a drug test, take your time to research about the methods that work and are not based on hearsay.
Some of the safer methods of passing a drug test
It can be scary and embarrassing to know that you have a drug test coming up especially if you have been smoking weed regularly. But there’s no need to attempt potentially dangerous techniques and methods in your desperation, especially when there are much simpler ways than the niacin drug test method.
If you have a supervised drug test coming up, use Toxin Rid’s 10 or 7 days detox programs. If you are short of time, try their 3 day program. If the test is scheduled a day away, then try Mega Clean detox solution. Also, always keep a bottle of Mega Clean at home just in case you get caught unaware with a supervised drug test.
If you have an unsupervised drug test coming up, just use a reliable synthetic urine like Clear Choice sub solution and switch samples. It’s as simple as that.
