Does Gnc Complete Body Cleansing Program Work
Hello Doctor I was wondering if the GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program works for Urine drug test for court?
Highly doubt it: Never heard of it. If it were that efficacious the FDA probably wouldn't allow it on the market. Plus, the court can always use the hair drug test for cocaine, meth, opiates, THC, etc. No amount of "cleansing" beyond suspiciously shaving/plucking every single hair on your body including eyebrows & eyelashes would fix that. Best thing to do would be to just not use drugs. ...Read more
It doesn't work.: Puriclean is intended to mask the traces of drugs in your body for the purposes of "detoxing, " passing a drug test, or minimizing a hangover. However, its ingredients have never been shown to effectively do this.

No: There is no evidence that "flushing" the body with excessive amounts of water will remove more of any drug, but it will sometimes make the urine so dilute that a drug they are testing for (cotinine) may fall below the detection limit and come up "negative." substances like milk thistle and other herbals are touted to help, but are unproven. Falsifying and adulterating specimens does you no favors. ...Read more

Curious how your body works without the gallbladder and if you can still eat all the foods you like?
Still Works: The body works without a gallbladder. The gallbladder stores bile which helps us digest fatty foods. Without the gallbladder reservoir, we cannot release as much bile after a meal, so sometimes fatty meals are harder to digest. This tends to improve with time and a low fat diet can help, especially right after surgery if fatty meals are a problem. ...Read more
