How to Get Rid of Ethyl Glucuronide

By Alan Temple

Ethyl glucuronide is a metabolite formed in the body, primarily after the ingestion of alcohol and the related ethanol in the alcohol. It is used as a medical marker when testing for alcohol consumption, which is perhaps why there is intrigue regarding whether you can get it out of your system forcibly. The truth is; once the metabolite is in your bloodstream it really is a case of letting nature take its course. You can expect traces of it to remain for up to 80 days, but there are a few techniques you can try to help nature on her way a little faster.

Ethyl glucuronide is a metabolite formed in the body, primarily after the ingestion of alcohol and the related ethanol in the alcohol.

The truth is; once the metabolite is in your bloodstream it really is a case of letting nature take its course. You can expect traces of it to remain for up to 80 days, but there are a few techniques you can try to help nature on her way a little faster.

Consider what you are eating and adjust your diet accordingly to give your body the best chance of evacuating the ethyl glucuronide at a faster rate than normal. Cabbage, broccoli, radishes, seaweed and brown rice are examples of foods rich in fiber which help flush the system.

Drink liquids which could help to cleanse your liver. Green tea is suitable for that task. Endeavor to eat dandelion roots, burdock and milk thistle, which also help.

Sustain your liver further by purchasing Vitamin C tablets, which helps detoxify enzymes. A simple regiment of these pills helps the liver -- an area affected by ethyl glucuronide. Look to eat foods which are rich in Vitamin C; the most obvious, of course, being oranges.

Hydrate yourself thoroughly. It is a myth to suggest that water (or a sauna for that matter) can "wash away" the ethyl glucuronide, however it certainly helps the natural process of allowing it to leave your system. It could speed the process up a little.
