Does taking Niacin get rid of traces of alcohol before my ETG test?

There is no scientific evidence to support the claims that Niacin helps to cleanse a person's body of alcohol.

Likewise, there is little evidence to suggest that the substance can reduce the metabolites of alcohol in the body. (Metabolites are looked for in an ETG test).

Although there are numerous claims made on the internet that certain substances or medications can help to cleanse the body before an ETG test, these are almost all completely false.

  • ETG tests look for the presence of ethyl glucuronide within a urine sample. Normally, these tests are used to test people who cannot drink for either probation or employment reasons.
  • This form of testing is more effective than standard urine screenings. It can detect the presence of urine in a subject's system over a longer period of time than a standard test. It is also more accurate and reliable.
  • Niacin is normally prescribed to lower the risk of heart problems in individuals who have high cholesterol.
  • It can also be used to treat patients who are suffering from coronary artery disease.

Don't use niacin, if you have a drug test in the next 3-4 days. You can fail because of it and large dosages cause skin reactions. I used and failed (abnormal levels).
