When it comes to detox drinks, one drink will always get a mention. It’s called Mega Clean. You will have seen Mega Clean reviews, and it’s a drink that is widely used and available.
But how good is Mega Clean? Just because it’s widely available and used a lot, does it get results, do people pass drug tests using Mega Clean? Well, in this quick review of Mega Clean I’m going to tell you everything you need to know about using it, how it works, and also tell you about real-life test results.
Plus, I’ll compare Mega Clean to a couple of the most popular alternative detox drinks out there, and give you an alternative strategy, should you decide that Mega Clean isn’t for you.
How A Detox Drink Works
I’ll start this Mega Clean review by telling you about how it actually works. A lot of people get a bit confused by the name “detox drink”. They believe that when they drink the drink it draws all the toxins out of your body leaving you permanently clean. It detoxifies you. That’s a pretty reasonable assumption to make.
However, it’s not what happens. When you drink the detox drink like Mega Clean, it does the following:
- Flushes the toxins out of your bladder and urinary tract
- Keeps your urine clean for a few hours
- Replaces nutrients and minerals lost in the flushing out process
- Ensures creatine levels are normal
But if you’ve still got drug metabolites in your body, they will start to work their way into your urine within a few hours.
So a detox drink like Mega Clean is actually just a masking agent. Better than water, because it maintains a natural balance that means your sample won’t be rejected as adulterated, but its effects only last for a few hours (usually five hours or less).
About Mega Clean Detox
Mega Clean is one of the more popular detox drinks around because it’s sold in Walmart. Because of that, and large online sales, people talk about it a lot. That makes it well known, and the snowball keeps rolling down the hill, getting bigger and bigger.
Which is why you’ll see so many informal Mega Clean reviews online from people saying that it worked, or saying Mega Clean didn’t work.
It’s made by a company called Detoxify, which makes a range of similar detox drinks. All in red packaging, and all with similar names:
- Mega Clean
- Xxtra Clean
- Mighty Clean
- Mega Clean NT
- Ready Clean
- Green Clean
Detoxify Mega Clean is the most popular because of its availability in Walmart, but also because it’s a very good value detox drink. In terms of the rest of the range, they mostly contain small amounts of the same liquid or are different formulas that for me have never worked well.
So my advice is just a stick with buying the full 1 L bottle size of Mega Clean. But don’t buy it in Walmart, or from any other store apart from the trusted online retailer Test Clear.
If you buy Mega Clean from Test Clear, it comes bundled up with six powerful pre-rid pills. You take those in the 24 hours before your drug test and they push out far more toxins than you could get rid of naturally. This leaves Mega Clean with far less work to do on the day of your test, making it a very potent option.
Mega Clean Vs Qcarbo
Just like Mega Clean, Qcarbo32 is sold in Walmart. It’s also another very popular detox product.
However, it’s not as strong as Mega Clean. If you’re just talking about a straight-up competition between the two, Mega Clean is going to win every single time. If you throw in the six pre-rid pills you can get Mega Clean with the free, and it’s a ridiculous comparison.
If you’ve got literally no other option, then Qcarbo is better than water, but it’s still a huge gamble and nothing like the quality of Mega Clean.
Mega Clean Vs Ultra Eliminex
Having just warned you away from Qcarbo, I ‘m now actually going to recommend another detox drink from the same company. Herbal clean make Qcarbo and my recommendation, Ultra Eliminex.
Ultra Eliminex is more expensive than Mega Clean, often costing $20 more, but on its own, it’s a far superior detox drink.
It’s still advisable to do a 24-48 detox beforehand, but it’s definitely the most potent detox drink on the market.
However, Mega Clean and the pre-rid pills are comparable in strength, but just looking at the detox drinks on their own, there is no competition.
Mega Clean Instructions
So let’s say you are a regular weed smoker. You know you’ve got quite a lot of cannabis metabolites in your body, and you’ve got a drug test in two days’ time.
Thankfully, you’ve managed to get your hands on a bottle of Mega Clean and the six pre-rid pills free from Test Clear. These are the Mega Clean instructions you need to follow:
- Firstly, you need to try and achieve a natural 48 hour detox. Stop taking in drugs, eat well, sleep well, exercise, sweat, and drink plenty of water. This will help your body to eliminate toxins at a faster rate.
- 24 hours before your drug test, start taking the pre-rid pills at a rate of one every 2-3 hours. Make sure you drink plenty of water and urinate frequently. This will help to eliminate toxins.
- The top tip from me is if you are only trying to eradicate weed metabolites, then in the 24 hours before your test also eats high fiber foods and fatty foods. Eat an all-bran cereal, and eat some greasy burgers. Fat and fiber create bile, and weed metabolites can bind to this and are drawn out through the bowels.
- Two hours before your drug test, drink the bottle of Mega Clean. Do this over about 15 minutes and then urinate frequently in the hour after you’ve finished consuming it.
- Do a home drug test kit just before you leave. Fingers crossed it’s going to show as negative. If not, make sure you’ve got a box of synthetic urine handy.
Mega Clean Review: My Experience
To answer the question around does Mega Clean work, I want to tell you about the results of the testing and analysis I’ve done.
One of my friends had a drug test six months ago, and I recommended Mega Clean to him. He is a regular weed smoker like me, and he did a 24 hour detox with the pre-rid pills. He passed the drug test.
15 months previously, I did exactly the same myself and I passed a drug test for pre-employment as well. So it’s worked for two real-life drug tests I’m aware of.
But I also tested it a month ago, for the purposes of writing this review. I didn’t bother with the 24-hour detox or the pre-rid pills. I haven’t been smoking a lot recently, and it was a bit of a spur of the moment thing, and I grabbed a bottle while in Walmart.
I took a home drug test one hour after drinking the drink and urinating a couple of times, and I passed.
Now that’s not to say that you would pass with high toxin exposure under those circumstances, but it worked for me.
So if you are sensible and plan in advance by buying a bottle of Mega Clean with the pre-rid pills, alongside a 24-hour detox, I’d say you are then in possession of an almost cast-iron guarantee of passing a drug test.
Synthetic Urine As An Alternative To Mega Clean
If you take the home drug test kit just before you leave to go to the lab and test positive then you are in a world of trouble. It could be because you haven’t done the detox beforehand properly, or it could just be that you are so riddled with drug toxins that they are working their way into your urine stream frequently, meaning that you don’t get a few hours clean.
In this circumstance, your only alternative is to use synthetic urine, basically to submit a fake sample. I’d also recommend it as an alternative strategy to think about from the beginning. A good quality synthetic urine is easier to deal with and stands a better chance of passing than using a detox drink. Plus you don’t need to do a detox at all.
On the downside, the bit that puts people off is that you have to smuggle the sample into the lab. But if it’s an unsupervised drug test then that shouldn’t be a problem.
The brand I would recommend is Clear Choice, and the product is Quick Luck. It’s $100, but it’s the most advanced synthetic urine product you can buy. Plus, you don’t get the variability of a heatpad keeping it warm. Instead, it uses heat activator powder which you can add just before you go into the testing facility to get it up to the right temperature. You can also buy Sub Solution, it’s only $80 and almost as good as Quick Luck. Both synthetic urine is 100% safe to use.
If you don’t fancy that, then Mega Clean with the pre-rid pills is a brilliant option. Just make sure you do at least a 24 hour detox to ensure that the drink has as few drug toxins as possible to deal with.
