Tetra Cleanse is a product that drug users often use before appearing for drug tests and most reviews show that the product works to remove signs of drugs from one’s body. Its health ‘benefits’ however, are not known and not even advertised, making it a dubious purchase. There is no evidence that this ‘health supplement’ enhances one’s health or lends any positive benefit to any of the body’s tissues, other than aiding the user in passing a drug test.
