Using Niacin to Pass a Drug Test

 

Myths are abound in drug testing.

 

You ask 50 people how to pass a drug test more than likely you will be get 50 different answers.  One of the responses sure to show up is that niacin will help you pass a drug test.   It’s hard to say when this myth came about but it’s safe to say that it’s been around since the time when drug testing started which was the 1970s. The fact is that this myth has been around for such a long time  is surely worth investigating.  Niacin goes by many different names which include: B-3-50, B3-500-Gr, Endur-Acin, Niacor, Niacor B3, Niaspan, Nicolar, and Slo-Niacin which are brand names by different pharmaceutical companies.  However, it can also be purchased from any health food store.  The quality will be the same whether you get it from a doctor or from a health food store.

 

Niacin is used with diet changes (restriction of cholesterol and fat intake) to reduce the amount of cholesterol and certain fatty substances in your blood. Niacin is also used to prevent and treat pellagra (niacin deficiency), a disease caused by inadequate diet and other medical problems. Niacin is a B-complex vitamin.  Niacin is referred to as vitamin B3 because it was the third of the B vitamins to be discovered. It has historically been referred to as "vitamin PP" or "vitamin P-P".

 

Niacin’s popularity in helping a person pass a drug test most likely came about based on theory niacin’s effect on fatty tissue.  This and the well known fact that marijuana toxins are stored in the fatty tissue which causes the marijuana toxins to stay much longer in the body.   I once asked a physician who attended a NORML conference about this belief that Niacin helps a person pass a drug test and he just snickered and laughed and said, “In theory it sounds good, but in order for it to have the desired effect in helping a person pass a drug test massive amounts of niacin would have to be ingested, and those amounts are not humanly possible.  In fact, too much niacin can be fatal.

 

Like many myths it takes only one person to start the revolving door of misinformation.  A person takes niacin and takes their drug test and to their amazement their drug test comes back as negative.  For some reason the person attributes them passing their drug test is due to the magical effects of niacin.  So he tells the world about his new found discovery and everyone else and so on.  But in reality there could be many reasons why the person tested negative.  It could be due to one of many factors such as: 1)  The person was able to test negative on their own to begin with  2) The lab made a mistake  3) the sample was never tested.  (This is very common in probation situations as not all samples are tested).  Whatever the reason was it WAS NOT due to niacin.  It was due to something unrelated to niacin.  

 

One of the side of effects of taking niacin includes dermatological conditions such as skin flushing and itching, dry skin, and skin rashes including eczema exacerbation and acanthosis nigricans.  Some people that take it for passing a drug test firmly believe that the skin flushing is helping them remove the toxins from their body.  It hard to understand that reasoning, but there is no scientific evidence to support this hypothesis.   It is just part of the myth that taking niacin will help you pass a drug test.

Now that we have talked about a myth that doesn’t work.  Let’s talk about a product that is specially formulated in helping you remove toxins from your body permanently and therefore help you pass a drug test.  The Toxin Rid Detox Programs are the best products available in helping you remove toxins from your body.  Unlike niacin, the Toxin Rid Detox Programs are proven effective over and over..  The program contains liquid, tablets, and a powder that are designed to remove the toxins from your fatty tissue and thus the toxins are excreted either by urination or bowel movement.  It is essential that you get the right program for your toxin level..
