Most of us are familiar with the idea of a detox drink. It’s a product category that holds a spot in our mind because of the close associations between fluids, detoxification, and urinalysis.
It makes sense at a high level, but what are the ingredients in a detox drink like Ultimate Gold really doing to help clear toxins from our sample?
Let’s take a look.
Water soluble toxins are cleared from the body from the bloodstream, to the kidneys, and ultimately the bladder.
This is an ongoing process, all day every day. But in this context, we’re particularly interested in eliminating as many toxins from the blood as possible within a short time frame. This leads to a window of time where there are very few detectable toxins being eliminated via the kidney detox pathway.
In order to do this, the key is adequate hydration. This changes the ratio of liquid to toxins, more clean fluids and fewer undesirable compounds.
So that means chugging a buttload of whatever is all we need to do, right?
While that will work for passing the test itself, it will also leave us with a water-clear sample that will potentially raise a red flag at the testing facility.
Enter B vitamins. B vitamins are water soluble, so the excess is excreted in the urine. And vitamin B-2 (Riboflavin), specifically, turns urine yellow. That way even though our sample may be sufficiently diluted to minimize the prescence of toxins, it’ll still visually look normal.
So there’s one hurdle down. The other parameter that may indicate an abnormally diluted sample is the amount of creatinine in it.
Creatinine is a water-soluble metabolite of creatine, the chemical that helps generate ATP (aka energy) which is the force behind muscle contractions. Since creatinine is water soluble, a urine sample with low levels of creatinine is easily flagged as overly diluted.
That’s why we include creatine in Ultimate Gold, because having sufficient amounts of creatine in the bloodstream helps to maintain creatinine levels in urine samples.
Natural flavorings fruit pectin and orange oil, along with storied urinary health herb Bearberry (uva ursi) extract round out the Ultimate Gold ingredient list to maximize the detoxification effects and maintain sample parameters in what otherwise would be an overly diluted specimen.
