Disclaimer: None of the information in this article constitutes medical advice, and is just the opinion of the writer(s). We recommend that patients follow their doctor’s guidance in regard to detoxification.

High Voltage Detox is one of the most popular detoxification brands, and the company claims that their drinks can "remove unwanted toxins and pollutants from your urinary tract." The company sells everything from 5-day programs to single drinks to mouthwash to shampoo; all with the purpose of supporting detoxification.

But what's actually in High Voltage Detox, and are its ingredients clinically shown to support detoxification? Can these products help customers pass drug tests? How do real users rate and describe the effects of High Voltage Detox? And which retailer sells this brand for the best price?

In this article we'll answer all of these questions and more, as we analyze the ingredients in High Voltage Detox drink and High Voltage Detox Double Flush based on clinical studies, to give our take on whether or not these products are likely to be effective for supporting detoxification, and whether or not they're likely to have an effect on drug tests.

We'll feature unsponsored customer reviews of the brand, and provide a cost comparison to show which retailer sells High Voltage Detox for the best price.

High Voltage Detox Drink Review

High Voltage Detox drink ingredients

The ingredients in High Voltage Detox drink are shown above.

These ingredients were sourced from a third-party seller called Great CBD Shop, because the brand itself fails to publish the ingredient list on the product page of their website at the time of updating this article.

There are some research-backed ingredients in this formulation.

Uva ursi was shown in a medical review published in the LiverTox journal to be effective for treating kidney and bladder stones.

Milk thistle extract is clinically shown to heal the liver when used at an effective dose, as we documented in our Liver Health Formula reviews article, but the dose in High Voltage Detox is not clearly published.

Echinacea purpurea extract was shown in a 2021 animal study to prevent liver injury from overuse of alcohol.

But while there are some research-backed active ingredients in High Voltage Detox drink, there are a number of inactive ingredients that we consider to be questionable from a health perspective.

High fructose corn syrup is used as a sweetener, and this “Premium Detox Drink” contains 42 grams (g) of sugar per bottle. That’s 3 g more sugar than exists in a 12 ounce Coke.

Excessive intake of added sugar is associated with increased risk of heart disease, according to a 2014 medical review.

Creatine monohydrate is typically used in pre-workouts, and is a strange choice for a detox supplement in our opinion.

medical review published in the Mini-Reviews in Medicinal Chemistry journal suggests creatine may be toxic: "...one of the theories regarding the potential for toxicity from creatine supplementation is that it can increase oxidative stress and potentially form carcinogenic compounds."

Artificial colors may be toxic based on animal studies

Potassium sorbate and sodium benzoate are synthetic preservatives, the former of which was shown to be toxic to human cells in a 2010 clinical trial.

Citric acid is a preservative and flavor enhancer shown to cause whole-body inflammatory reactions in a 2018 medical review.

Overall, we consider High Voltage Detox drink potentially effective for supporting detoxification, due to the inclusion of the active ingredients discussed above.

However, we can't find any clinical evidence that this product is likely to help individuals pass drug tests, which it seems like some online customers use it for.

We do not currently recommend this product, or consider it to be healthy, due to the inclusion of the inactive ingredients discussed above.

High Voltage Detox Double Flush Review

High Voltage Detox capsule active ingredients

Double Flush is High Voltage Detox's "most potent" cleanse.

This product contains both a liquid and a capsule. The liquid is the same product as we analyzed in the previous Ingredient Analysis section. The active ingredients in the capsule supplement are shown above.

Uva ursi and milk thistle have research backing for kidney and liver support, but these ingredients are already included in the liquid, so we consider their inclusion here to be somewhat confusing.

Turmeric powder may have a protective effect after toxin exposure, given that one of its constituent chemical compounds (curcumin) was shown in a 2010 clinical trial to help animals recover from heavy metal poisoning.

However, the dose used in the above-linked trial is more than 10x the dose in High Voltage Detox Double Flush when standardized by body weight.

Licorice may have a naturally detoxifying effect, according to a medical review published in the Phytonutrients journal.

The inactive ingredients in the capsule formulation, shown below, should be safe and non-toxic:

High Voltage Detox Double Flush inactive ingredients

Overall, we consider High Voltage Detox Double Flush somewhat likely to support detoxification, although we can't find any clinical evidence suggesting it will help users pass drug tests, which is what some online customers seem to be taking it for.

We consider the capsule formulation to be significantly healthier than the liquid formulation due to the lack of refined sugar and questionable inactive ingredients.

For consumers intent on trying High Voltage Detox, using the capsule formulation in isolation may be the healthiest choice.

Where to Buy High Voltage Detox for the Best Price

We want to be clear that we do not recommend this brand, but for those intent on purchasing it, below is a cost comparison.

High Voltage Detox is sold at a variety of online retailers. Here's a price breakdown for a one-time purchase of High Voltage Detox drink and High Voltage Detox Double Flush:

High Voltage Detox Drink

Brand website: $18.99 (plus shipping, link)

Walmart: $18.99 (plus shipping, third-party seller, link)

Amazon: $13.98 (free shipping, third-party seller, link)

High Voltage Detox Double Flush

Brand website: $29.95 (plus shipping, link)

Walmart: $23 (plus shipping, third-party seller, link)

Amazon: $17.19 (free shipping, third-party seller, link)

Prices are currently cheaper on Amazon, but the Amazon listings are published by a third-party seller, so purchasing directly from the manufacturer may be a safer option in this case.

Are Drug Detox Drinks Effective?

A YouTube video from the "Beginnings Treatment Center" page is only slightly over one minute long, has over 350,000 views, and discusses whether or not drug detox drinks are effective:

Real Customers Review High Voltage Detox

Amazon is a better resource for unbiased customer reviews than a brand's website in our opinion.

High Voltage Detox Double Flush Acai Grape is the brand's most-reviewed product on Amazon at the time of updating this article, with over 450 total reviews, and an average review rating of 3.9 out of 5 stars.

The top positive review from a verified purchaser comes from a user named "Andy" who gives the product a 5/5 star rating, and suggests it was effective for passing a drug test:

"Everyday heavy smoker, failed a at home test two days before taking this. Cleared me out and i passed my pre employment test! Only took 5 of the 6th pills and nothing about this taste good but it works!"

The top negative review from a verified purchaser is written by a user named "Shelly" who gives the product a 1/5 star rating, and claims it was ineffective for passing a drug test:

"I have not used in 65 days but at home tests have been positive - even though my dr said after 60 I should not be...Update: Quest results positive."

High Voltage Detox currently has an average review rating of 3.4 out of 5 stars on Facebook.

Can Tea Support Natural Detox Processes?

We don't recommend the use of food products or supplements to "cleanse" or "remove toxins" from the body.

However, there are compounds which can support the body's natural detoxification processes, that consumers intent on detox support could consider.

Rooibos tea was shown to support optimal liver function in a clinical trial published in the Oxidative Medicine and Cellular Longevity journal.

The study authors concluded the following:

"Results from this study suggest that the daily intake of unfermented rooibos herbal tea or a derived commercial rooibos supplement may benefit human health by providing the liver with an enhanced antioxidant capacity to reduce damage induced by toxicants."

Pique Rooibos Tea is our top rooibos tea pick, because it's conveniently packaged in crystallized form and only hot water (no teapot) is needed to make it. The only ingredient in this product is organic rooibos.

Interested consumers can check out Pique Rooibos Tea at this link to the product page on the brand's official website.

We are not suggesting that rooibos tea should be used to treat any health condition.

Conclusion

For the most part, we find commercial detoxification supplements to be confusing. 

These supplements are not recommended for medically-required detoxification (like with mercury poisoning), but instead seem to be used mostly for passing drug tests.

However, we haven't seen any clinical evidence that the active ingredients in High Voltage Detox supplements help users pass drug tests, nor does the brand appear to have published any clinical trials proving that their products have this effect.

Both of the High Voltage Detox supplements reviewed in this article contained some active ingredients with research backing for liver support.

We consider the capsule formulation in Double Flush to be much healthier than the liquid formulation (which is the same formulation in High Voltage Detox drink).

The drink contains a high dose of refined sugar, along with questionable inactive ingredients like artificial colors and synthetic preservatives.

At the time of updating this article, Amazon has better prices on High Voltage Detox than the brand's website, but the Amazon listings are from third-party sellers, so consumers who can afford to do so may benefit from purchasing directly from the manufacturer.
