Last Updated on

If you are reading this article, you are probably wondering how effective cranberry juice is, or whether it will even work to pass a urinalysis test, right? Or how much cranberry juice would be sufficient to detox effectively?

Well, you can sit back and relax because we can answer that for you!

Throughout this article, you will read about how cranberry juice can help you pass a pee test, what elements allow cranberry juice to be an effective detox.

Will Cranberry Juice Help Pass a Urinalysis?

Let’s start off by saying that cranberry juice can be used to pass that test, but not necessarily in a beneficial way. In fact, if you use this method, you are putting yourself at higher, unnecessary risk.

Yes, it is a natural way to detox your body before a urinalysis, but it depends on how much you smoke. For example, if you do it on a daily basis, it would take at least a month for your body to detox.

So if you have that kind of time to prepare, then this cranberry juice method is for you. If you don’t have a month to detox, there is no guarantee that it will work for you.

What Makes Cranberry Juice Effective?

Well, cranberry juice is a natural diuretic. Meaning, it causes an increased frequency of passing urine, which can help rid your body of toxins.

And the elements that are known as viable remedies to cheat a pee test, are listed below:

  • Niacin
  • Aspirin
  • Pectin
  • Zinc

How Does It Work?

Okay, now you know what makes it compelling. But how do those components work for it to be effective?

As we stated, earlier cranberry juice is a diuretic, and the accelerated urination speeds up your bodies natural process of removing toxins. Even better the other minerals in the juice also aid waste removal.

Let’s get into further detail about how each element works to detox your body; starting off with niacin.

A High Dosage Of Niacin!

What you need to know about niacin is that you would need a high dosage of it. Around 500 mg to 2000 mg every day to be exact! And you would need gallons of water to go along with it! It would take weeks of doing this before your screening.

Knowing that information, you are probably wondering how much cranberry juice to drink before the screening, right? Well, in a 100g bottle, there is about only 0.04g of niacin.

So in other words, you would need to drink A WHOLE LOT to get the 500g minimum!

Salicylic Acid, Key Ingredient To Aspirin

If you didn’t know, there is evidence that suggests taking an aspirin a couple of hours before a urinalysis can trick the test to give a false negative. Just like in the lab analyses in the Journal of Analytical Toxicology, which found negative results when taking aspirin before a test.

Although it can give you a false negative for a urinalysis, the method it would work on would be EMIT, short for Enzyme Multiplied Immunoassay Technique test. So if your screening happens to be a GC-MS test, you would fail.

But lucky for you, GC-MS tests are mainly used as a way to confirm if you tested positive in the EMIT test, and is also quite costly. So EMIT tests are most likely to be used since this procedure is less expensive.

So, the salicylic acid content in the cranberry juice may help. But it still unclear as to how much cranberry juice you would have to drink to equal the amount of salicylic acid needed. Also, it is not a guarantee that it will always give you a negative.

Packing Some Pectin!

If you have not read our Certo Review yet, which explains what pectin is and how to use it, we’ll give you a quick rundown.

Pectin or fruit pectin is a natural polysaccharide found in fruits. It is similar to gelatin, having a gel consistency, except for the fact that pectin is a fiber and gelatin is a protein. And Certo and Sure-Jell, products of KRAFT Foods, use pectin.

Pectin binds itself to the toxins in your blood and excretes it through your stool instead of your urine. This then means you are temporarily “clean” of any unwanted toxins for your urinalysis.

Now for the cranberry juice to have this effect, it has to be done within 24 hours of your screening, but you would also have to drink a lot of it since the juice only contains a minimal amount of this fiber.

Zinc In Your Drink?

Zinc can beat the screening, and it has done so with tests involving the detection of:

  • THC
  • Methamphetamine
  • Cocaine

Zinc is found in the cranberry juice. But for the zinc to thwart your urinalysis, it would have to be added DIRECTLY into your urine. So the zinc in the drink will not work.

And if you are thinking about adding it into your sample, be wary that it might be a spot test. That allows them to detect the zinc in your pee sample, in case it was used to interfere with your screening.

Luckily, labs rarely use that method. But, there happens to be a higher chance of getting caught if they use that test.

Not Really Worth It, Is It?
