Can Yogi Detox Tea Help You Beat The System?
It is a cat and mouse game between drug screening labs and drug users. A technique may work for a few people. However, once a drug screening lab finds out that a product or technique was used to cheat the UA, they will then take measures to counter that “Cheat.” For example, Meth users have tried baking soda as a potential drug test hack.
Drug Testing is a big business and drug testing labs make billions every year. I.E., In 2017 companies spent over 8.5 billion a year on drug screening. With these billions of dollars, they receive they are easily able to outspend any, so-called, drug-cheat detox product.
Personally, I remember a friend of mine in college, who smoked weed and was in the Marine Reserves. In an effort to pass a potential drug test, right before his, one weekend a month, obligation, he took massive amounts of niacin. It may have worked for him. But too much niacin, like pretty, much anything in life is not safe. (There have been a few reported cases of Niacin overdosing that have resulted in emergency room visits.
Yogi Detox Tea and Detoxing In General
The theory behind using detox diets and store-purchased drinks is that these drinks are said to be able to flush out toxins in your body and dilute THC or metabolites related to THC out of your system to a level that cannot be discovered on a drug test. These teas and other products are combined with large amounts of water and the natural diuretic cranberry juice.
With this in mind, I am now going to do a general review on detox, and then specifically review Yogi Detox Tea.
What Actually is Detox?
This section is only meant to give you a general idea of what detox diets and drinks are used. It is not an attempt to convince you, one way or another if a detox diet or drink is worth purchasing or doing.
Before trying any detox you should first know what one will do for you. Detox by way of limiting foods. certain liquids and certain substances are an attempt to flush your body out. Detox could be analogous to flushing out a radiator on your car. Detox diets vary greatly as some only allow you to drink liquids and fast. You will also soon grow tired as you will be eating the same drink or substances again and again.
Traditionally, detox has been done for two reasons:
- Weight Loss
- Flush Your System Out-Get toxins and other hazardous substances out of your body.
Detox means minimum calories and sparse food nutrients. As a result, when on one, you will often encounter some or all of the following adverse symptoms:
- Low Energy and Blood Sugar
- Aching Muscles
The following symptoms depend upon who long you and how strict a cleansing you are on.
With the popularity of drug testing increasing, Detox also is now frequently used to help people pass drug tests.
Do They Work?
According to WebMD any sort of detox diet will help with weight loss. However, per WebMD, you will also likely gain that weight back. As for “flushing out your system”, WebMD states that detox diets and store-purchased detox drinks are a waste of your time and money. Their reasoning is that your body has natural detox properties that work to cleanse your body of toxins and other harmful substances.
Yogi Detox Review
This review will be mostly limited to whether or not Yogi Tea works for helping you pass a drug test. So, other than a brief overview of its ingredients, I will not evaluate the overall Amazon ratings, like I normally would do. Additionally, other than basic Google Research, I will not individually evaluate the various detox properties contained in these teas.
Yogi Detox is a popular detox, made the manufacturer known simply as Yogi. It can be bought on Amazon and is marketed as being gluten and caffeine-free. Per their listing, Yogi Detox uses all-natural ingredients. For flavoring, they use ginger, black pepper, long pepper, cinnamon, and cardamom. And for flushing out your system it uses dandelion, burdock, and Ayurvedic spices that are claimed to warm your body up and speed up your body cleansing. ( Click Here) for more information concerning the various health benefits of the above.
Ayurvedic-is a generic term for the traditional 3,000-year-old school of Indian, holistic healing methods.
Is Yogi Detox Natural?
Yogi Tea is certified organic, per the USDA, and is free of GMO, and contains no artificial sweeteners or flavoring.
Does Yogi Detox Work for Drug Tests?
There is not any scientific proof that Yogi Detox Tea can work to help you pass a drug test.
The only positive information found concerning it helping you pass a drug test was two comments on forums. One was on the website Quora and the other was on a weed forum. These comments were anonymous. However, as I can see no incentive for lying, I tend to believe the posts. Two people drinking Yogi Teas who passed a drug test though is simply not valid proof showing that Yogi Tea will help you pass a UA.
The main reason for this is that professional drug screening tests have too many variables. I.E. How fat were the commentators. (Generally, the fatter you are the longer drugs will stay in your body) Another reason for passing a drug test was that lab errors were made. It could also be that the person being tested was simply luckily and It is highly likely that if he were to take the test another day he would have failed the test. I hope you get the point, by now.
No Health Professional Found Stated That Yogi Tea Works For Helping Pass a Drug Test
I visited several websites, HealthTap was one, where patients were allowed to ask general questions to verified physicians. All of these Doctors outright said that Yogi Detox and all detox teas will not help your body get rid of THC or metabolites related to Cannabis. Those Doctors also chastise the person who asked the question by telling them that they should stop drugs. Because of this, it seems unlikely that a Doctor would feel right encouraging patients to “cheat” on a drug test, so they could continue using drugs.
Yogi Detox doesn’t make any claims that their product will help you pass a UA. However, Yogi markets their product as being healthy. So, they are not trying for the cannabis smoker market.
Unfortunately, taxing any source of Detox, and not just Yogi will NOT likely result in you being able to pass your drug test. Most websites that would be considered by most people to be considered reputable says that detox tea drinks are a waste of money and that they absolutely will not help with a drug test.
There are just too many many variables concerning the urine drug tests, labs, and the people being tested:
- How much cannabis did the person actually smoke?
- Did the lab tech doing the urine analysis has ample experience?
Unfortunately, according to NORML the only sure way to pass a UA is to wait till the THC metabolites are out of your system and then take the test.
How Long Does Marijuana Last In Your Body?
Marijuana, like any drug, can be abused. Marijuana has though been found to have numerous medical benefits. I.E. Pain Relief, Glaucoma, etc., and, compared to heroin, cocaine, and other drugs cannabis is harmless. As such, it is not fair that cannabis properties stay in your body longer than any hard drugs.
How long it will last in your body, and be detected in a drug test depends on many factors:
● How fat or skinny are you?
● How much do you smoke?
● How often do you smoke?
● How Good the drug test is?
It is pretty much a common-sense answer to each of the above questions, except for the one concerning your body fat. (The fatter you are the more likely the THC is going to be detected.
In a nutshell, the longer you smoke, the amount you smoke, and how good the drug test is, will mean the difference between passing or failing the test.
Rule of Thumb
The following though is a rough guideline on how long marijuana can be detected in Urine Tests. (Hair drug tests will last longer)
● First Time User: Around three days
● Three to Four Times A Week: Five to Seven Days
● Daily USe: 30 days or more.
Yogi Green Tea
Green tea is one of Yogi’s other products that is not designed for passing urine tests. Green tea is quite popular and it is said to speed up your metabolism, and potentially increase fat oxidation, which can help with weight loss. Yogi Green Tea, like their Detox Teas, are not marketed for passing a drug screen and there wasn’t any healthcare professional saying that it can help you with your UA. Yogi Green Tea is though often used for that purpose.
However, other than a few people saying so, green tea has not been scientifically proven to help you pass the dreaded urine, drug test.
DIY Drug Test
If you are forced to take a surprise UA test that cannot be delayed you need to drink a massive amount of water that will result in your urine being diluted to the point where drugs hopefully will not be able to be detected. Click here for further info.
