The metabolite Benzoylecgonine is created by the liver once cocaine or crack is used. Most of the time it can be cleared from the blood system within 24 hours after use. In urine, this metabolite may continue to be eliminated for up to one month. That means that a urine test can detect cocaine use for up to a month by checking for the presence of Benzoylecgonine in urine.
Drug tests use this compound due to the fact that no other compound other than cocaine can metabolize into this compound. It is an exclusive marker for a cocaine abuse. All urine drug tests look for Benzoylecgonine unless specifically stated.
Do all Urine Tests Check for Cocaine
Cocaine is part of the standered 5 panel test. That means, all UA drug screenings check for cocaine. In order to pass any Urine screening, you will need to flush-out cocaine (Benzoylecgonine).
Length of Time By Use
Even though everyones metabolic rate is different the scale in which this metabolite is eliminated through urine is the same for most. It all depends on amount of cocaine used and for how long. A chronic user will of course take a longer time to cleanse out all cocaine metabolites. While a person that has used once and a small amount can test clean within 2-4 days after the last time they used.
Two Ways to Flush-out Your System Fast
There are really only two ways to clean Benzoylecgonine from your system totally. One is through the use of a detox, the other is by drinking large amounts of water to flush out your urinary track and kidneys.
Unfortunately, both methods are only temporary. Trace amounts of this metabolite will resurface after a few hours. They will drop off permanently only if the user stays clean and the metabolites take their natural course.
So, Why Detox?
Detoxing will allow your body to remove the current metabolites, making room for faster recovery. Also, flushing/detoxing will drop your the metabolite below detectable levels for a short period of time.
How to Get Benzoylecgonine out your system
Al thought flushing your system out with water alone does have its benefits. It is possible to trigger a false positive on a drug test. Screenings have become rather advanced and can check for “dilution”.
Dilution is when large amounts of water are used to flush out the body. The urine becomes clear and doesn’t have any trace minerals that are usually found in urine.
In Comes the need for a Detox
No matter what method you prefer, the most reliable way to pass a drug test is by combining both methods, flushing and using a Detox drink. Once your system is totally flushed out and your urine has been completely clear for a more than 2 instances, a Detox product will reintroduce normal minerals and add color.
Some detox products like CertoClear have the added benefit of fiber. This can also extend the the time urine is free of toxins. Fiber will divert and absorb toxins as they are re-released. It’s also important to note that CertoClears fiber content is especially high, making bowel movements more likely after use.
