Pass A Drug Test With Goldenseal – Myth Or Fact? 

Goldenseal is a naturally occurring herb that is indigenous to Canada and the East Coast of the United States.

This herb is also commonly referred to by many other names including Golden root, Eye Balm, Ground Raspberry, Hydraste, Turmeric Root, Indian Turmeric, Orange Root and many other names.

NOTE: If you have time before your drug test we highly recommend using our 7 day Detox Pill Cleanse – Ultra THC Detox™

The root of the Goldenseal herb has been used for medicinal purposes for hundreds of years for many ailments such as the common cold, respiratory infections, digestive disorders such as ulcers, colitis, diarrhea, constipation and hemorrhoids.

It can also be used as a pain deterrent for conditions such as menstruation, and chronic conditions such as pneumonia, internal bleeding, jaundice, cancer and anorexia.

With so many uses, it is no wonder that people try to use goldenseal to pass a drug test. One of the uses that leads to the popularity of this method is the medicinal value Goldenseal supposedly has for urinary tract infections, or UTI’s.

How does Goldenseal Affect My Drug Test

The effective chemical in Goldenseal is berberine. This chemical is thought to possibly have positive cleansing effects when it comes to bacteria and fungi.

Berberine is thought to be able to keep E-coli from adhering to the urinary tract walls which can cause urinary tract infections.

Some people believe that goldenseal can also help to prevent THC, the chemical in marijuana, and other illicit drugs from sticking to the urinary tract which would cause the chemicals to be passed through urine.

The process for using the herb to rid the body of drugs is to take the herb with a gallon of water so that the THC that would normally be stuck to the walls of the urinary tract are flushed out before the drug test.

Fact or Fiction?

The only active ingredient in goldenseal that is thought to have any value is berberine. This chemical is not sufficiently absorbed into the body when goldenseal is taking orally.

Unfortunately, there is also insufficient scientific evidence that goldenseal has any verifiable medicinal value therefore making it extremely unlikely that taking goldenseal will help you to pass a urine based drug test.

There are also severe side effects for pregnant women who use goldenseal. Hazardous chemicals can pass through the placenta to the unborn infant.

Goldenseal can also be passed through breast milk to babies. There have been studies that conclude that infants and fetuses exposed to goldenseal can suffer kernicterus, or brain damage.

Although it is possible that taking goldenseal in single doses may be safe for adults, there has simply not been enough conclusive evidence to deem the herb as safe and without any major health risks.

The idea that this herb causes a false negative is based on a book by pharmacist John Uri Lloyd. The book, entitled Stringtown on Pike, caused people to have a false negative for strychnine poisoning.

This was interpreted to be a sign that the herb would also work for creating a false negative for THC.

Because of the rising popularity a decade ago of trying to use the liquid and/or pill forms of goldenseal, laboratories are also now testing for traces of goldenseal in the sample.

Therefore, not only will goldenseal do nothing for masking the drugs in your urine, if the herb is found to be in your sample the test administrator can report that there was tampering with the test which will result in a failed test. 

If it really is that important to you to get that job or keep that job, there is only two 100% effective ways to pass a drug test without cheating, simply: to be entirely drug-free or to fully detox the body naturally with 7 day detox pills.

“I took the capsules and also drank a lot of cranberry juice during the detox week and passed the pee test I gave myself. I have used other capsules from GNC but they didn’t work and were more expensive. I will be buying again. Thanks” – Chris


“I have been purchasing your “magic pills” for over a year. I am a pretty heavy smoker and i usually pass with only doing 3 to 5 days out of the 7 recommended. I have to take a drug test every month and I have passed every single time using this product I was extremely skeptical at first, as i tried many others that did not work for me. Thanks, I love this product!!” – Jamie
