What is the Certo Method?
This method has been around for decades and is known by a few different names. I have heard it called the Sure Jell Method, Pectin Detox Method, etc,. But what ever you call it. It’s the same thing, uses the same main ingredients and method.
It works by using fiber to coat the stomach and trap toxins floating around your system. Proven effective if done right. The net is full of success stories of people that have been using it for years to pass.
Just remember, nothing is 100% and not doing it right or using the wrong ingredients accounts for most of the fails. That why we decided to put this together, increasing your odds!
What does it Works for?
Lets go over two of the most commonly asked questions. It’s super important that you go over these if your going to do the Sure-Jell method.
Will certo work to pass a drug test for coke, THC, alcohol, etc.,
What makes this method so incredible popular is because its an all around detox. Cleaning almost everything out of your body for a short period of time.
Will it work for hair, blood or saliva?
It will not help you pass a hair follicle test, blood or saliva test for THC.
This is strictly a Urine cleanser, if for what ever reason your stool is going to get checked, forget it. Pectin collects all the toxins and directs them out via your stool.
In short, Certo works for cleansing urine for just about every metabolite.
Getting the right ingredients
Before we start going over the “how to”, lets get a list of ingredients ready. You don’t need the exact same brands, just make sure they closely match the list.
Another alternative would be to buy “CertoClear“, a pre-mixed packet of powder, taking the guess work out.
1. Two Packets or about 3-4oz of Pectin powder
This detox method gets its name from the key ingredient pectin, a fruit based fiber thats fairly cheep and easy to find.
Pectin goes by a few different brand names, Sure Gel, Sure Jell and Certo. Any quality pectin powder will work as long as its not heavily mixed with sugars, dyes, etc,. Pectin should make up the bulk of the powder mix.
If your having trouble finding those brands, take a look at the ingredients listed on the back of Sure Jell.
Very simple, Dextrose a sweetener, citric acid and pectin for gelling, that’s it. Keep that in mind when looking for an alternative pectin.
Jell-o and gelatin based products will not work! Must be pectin!
2. Two 32oz Sports Drinks
Gatorade Lemon-lime is preferred, but not totally necessary. Any similar drink should work, the point here is, it must contain electrolytes, glucose and various minerals. Just remember you will need to large 32oz bottles.
3. One Gallon Water
A gallon of water is needed to assist in flushing out toxins.
If you use weed on the regular, have been smoking for years, have a slow metabolism or have a high body fat percentage, optionals are highly recommended. A casual smoker might pass without these additional ingredients. If you have only smoked weed once or just a few times, you should be good just doing part 2.
Because heavy/long term users will have to drink more water in order to flush out. The chances of failing from dilution are higher. It’s also not a bad idea to include them anyway.
Some what optional, it all depends on your metabolism and clarity of your urine sample. Multi-vitamins are cheap and available everywhere. If you don’t have any vitamins, or find a better deal on B12 only, your good.
B12 is the only vitamin you will need. It’s used to add color back into diluted urine.
Light smokers should get an adequate amount of Creatine from the sports drink. But if you usually drink a lot of water or exercise a few times a week. Adding 5g of creatine powder to the final bottle of Gatorade wont hurt.
Certo Drug Detox Instructions
The way you decide to do this depends on the amount of time you have before getting tested. This method is optimal for 24hr notice, but can be used as little as 4hr before.
We are going to split it up into 2 parts. The second half to be done at the midway point. With really short notice only do the last part.
- 24hr notice: Do the first the night before and the second half 2 hours before testing
- 4hrs notice: First half immediately, second 2 hours before
- 2hrs notice: Skip first part, only do second. Drink plenty of water leading to test
- No matter what always stop using as soon as you know your going to get screened!
- Expect to have bowel movements, this is a powerful cleansing technique
How to Do The Sure Jell Method
Part 1: Pre-Cleanse
The point of this part is to pick up any toxins that have saturated your system. Making it more likely to pass the first time around.
- Open up the 32oz sports drink. Drink enough to make room for one whole packet of pectin.
- Pour the pectin, close the cap and mix. The Gatorade should get thicker.
- Drink the entire 32oz before it turns to jelly.
- Drink water for the rest of the night.
Part 2: Final Flush
This is the flush and replenish stage. It’s best you finish this part about 2hrs before the screening. Any free time in between should be spent drinking extra water. In total, the entire gallon of water should be done before taking the test.
Preferably, you should drink less then half the night before. Then split up the rest the day of, drinking half before part to and the other half after doing part 2.
- Make the same Gatorade + pectin mix, Add 5g creatine if you want.
- Drink the entire bottle
- Drink plenty of water
- Take B12 or a Multivitamin about 1hr before
- Drink plenty of water
- Take test
People have reported passing within 1 hour after finishing part 2. But it’s best to wait 2hrs before giving a urine sample.
What you should be aware of
This method is not without draw backs, here are somethings you should know before attempting
- Sugar: If you have problems with sugar intake (diabetic), don’t do it!
- Bathroom trips: Expect to pee alot and most likely drop a duce.
- Only abstinence is 100% guaranteed: There is always a chance of failing, unless your totally clean.
What are the reviews?
The thing is, this method has worked for a long time so far. But testing procedures have changed and made it harder cleanse for. For the most part, every review from 2017 and 2018 so far have been good with very few fails. Except for the people that have skipped on the ingredient list, or over diluted their urine.
