How does gelatin help to pass a drug test?
While fruit pectin works as an absorbent, gelatin also covers the wall of the intestines. It prevents the effect of a leaky gut. Thus it prevents the reabsorption of THC metabolites in the blood.
About 70% of THC is excreted through the intestines. But most of this THC is reabsorbed back into the blood.
Gelatin absorbs THC in the intestines, covers the intestine walls, prevents the reabsorption of THC, and, thus, reduces the amount of THC that gets into the urine from the blood.
