It is time to put this nonsense about certo being a proven way to pass a urine drug screen to rest .
Certo or sure jel is the same stuff as Beni fiber They are all fruit pectin, and Pectin is a soluble dietary fiber mostly derived from apples. In human digestion, pectin binds to cholesterol in the gastrointestinal tract and slows glucose absorption by trapping carbohydrates.
pectin has been shown to reduce blood cholesterol levels. The mechanism appears to be an increase of viscosity in the intestinal tract, leading to a reduced absorption of cholesterol from bile or food. In the large intestine and colon, microorganisms degrade pectin and liberate short-chain fatty acids. All of this would be good at trapping THC as it is bound to fats and the fiber traps the fats, but THC is not eaten it is smoked.
THC is metabolized mainly to 11-OH-THC by the body. This metabolite is still psychoactive and is further oxidized to 11-nor-9-carboxy-THC (THC-COOH). Metabolism occurs mainly in the liver by cytochrome P450 enzymes CYP2C9, CYP2C19, and CYP3A4.
More than 55% of THC is excreted in the feces and 20% in the urine. The main metabolite in urine is the ester of glucuronic acid and THC-COOH and free THC-COOH. In the feces, mainly 11-OH-THC was detected.THC binds to cannabinoid receptors that are located in different areas of the body, including the brain, heart, and liver.
The use of certo or pectin as a way to trap THC in the body is unfounded as it can only trap what is in the stomach or intestine. Pectin will lower your cholesterol and triglycerides so low daily consumption by way of a soluble fiber product will lower the bodies mechanism of absorbing a small amount into system from intestine, but very little can be done as THC goes from lungs to liver to small intstine . %25 of THC is unexcreeted so it goes to fat stores ( mostly liver fat).
AGAIN the certo theory is bunk. It will help lower the bodies storing of THC but so does a low fat diet and cardio. These UNEDUCATED people with claims of passing wither from certo pectin or other nonsense like water purification tabs are bogus . IT IS ALL THE WATER taken with these things diluting the levels . %90 of the people who claim they passed after using certo would have passed with NOTHING . If someone wants to scientifically prove certo causes you to pass then they need to prove it by smoking daily for a month, consume the certo with a CUP of water not a gallon and get a mass spec analysis in a lab, not a dollar store reagent strip .
THC when consumed one time or infrequently will only be in your system for a few day like any other drug , it must be used regularly to build up in fat stores, providing you are not a single digit body fat individual.
SO if you're a regular user of THC who has not done cardio detox for a month ,i.e. not a lean basketball player and you have to test in a legit lab you may want to use substitution with synthetic urine . Unlike consuming things with tons of water synthetic urine can be used for Random test . If you need to know if you need synthetic urine or if your good as is you can ask a consultant with honest info at www.Passitkit.com
