  • Are these supplements banned?

    Can't find this information. I got these at GNC. They were apparently trials, but, I figure I should ask before I put anything in me like that and get tested for something.

    I can't find any information on what is and isn't banned, so here's what I have:

    GNC Mega Men Sport
    Hydroxycut Hardcore Elite
    Cellucor Super HD
    Cellucor CLK
    Ripped Freak Hybrid Fat Burner

    Just want to check. If no one knows, at least some banned ingredients would be nice.

    From a military perspective you're safe. Please, for your own health, remember that these supplements are not evaluated nor controlled by the FDA and quite a few have been found with delitarous levels of heavy metals and carcinogens in them. No, but you won't piss "hot" on a drug test.

      At our last drill, our sergeants made a big production about warning us about either an ingredient or supplement called C5? that was causing people to test positive on drug tests.

        News to me. I suppose eating poppy seed muffins can have the same effect. I'm not sure it's a reason not to eat them.

          Drugs are what cause people to test postive.

            Sure, if you eat them every single meal by the dozens for days before your drug test.

              Well supposedly this caused a false positive. I feel like if our first sergeant made a point of bringing it up during drill that it isn't just some bs type situation where you have eat a billion poppy-seeds.

                I know you are a new private, so continue to show respect to the NCOs at your unit; however if you believe everything your 1SG says you will be in for a very long ride.

                    Well, considering it is not an illegal drug, I think you are good. When trying to access whether or not a substance will test positive on a drug test, use this single question as a test parameter..."is it an illegal drug"? If no, then....no. Lets try some examples....

                    Cocaine - Yes

                    Tylenol - No

                    Chicken Mcnuggets - No

                    Beer - No

                    Crack - Yes

                    Gamma O - No

                    Grandmas homemade spaghetti - No

                    Brownies - Dependant upon ingredients.

                    Marijuana - Yes

                    Sugar - No

                    See how easy this is?

                            I happened across a flyer posted on a board on post a couple days ago that was essentially a warning about something called C4 found in a type of workout drink and that it might cause a false positive on a UA drug screen. It was not an official memorandum and simply posted on a public bulletin board. I thought of this post when I saw it.

                              Soooooo, you're saying if I smoke a crack rock just before I get on the bus to MEPS, then it won't have enough time to show up in my urine?
