Glycobol Side Effect?

  1. Question Glycobol Side Effect?


    First off guys I want to say Glycobol rocks. I've been using it 4 days now and feel amazing after mod/high carb meal.

    I have a question though (and sorry if this grosses anyone out). Has anyone else noticed a dark green stool since starting glycobol? It started the same day I started the supplement.

    I've ruled out dietary causes (green veggies, food dyes, etc..) I'm just wondering what the cause could be. Other than color no real changes in consistency or frequency. Any input would be appreciated!

  2. Thanks. i did see that. Maybe too little bile is mixing with my food

  3. I did not notice it when I beta tested it.
    Ask me for samples of the new RecoverPRO and Maniac. 3Z is coming July 1st Facebook for more info and maybe a great deal on it coming.

  5. Do you eat a lot of fat in ur meals?

  6. Hmm. Fiber, YES. Fat.. Not so much. I have a MASSIVE bowl of oatmeal every morning complete with flax meal and wheat germ. My main fat sources would be peanut butter (x3 times a day) and eggs.

  7. the reason i ask is because some people when they eat to much fat they get steatorreah (fatty stools) however i never had green poo, Red once, but that was from peppers

    have you been using one or 2 pills? maybe see if you drop the dose to 1 pill 4x a day the same thing happens instead of 2 pills 2x a day

    I went a little while ago. It seems much better today. I've been taking 2x twice a day. First dose is with my Breakfast Oatmeal and the 2nd with my dinner (Postworkout) Sweet potato and/or quinoa.

    I'll update tomorrow but I have a feeling this will be resolved by tomorrow or Wed.

  9. I haven't had that problem, mines from tons of broccoli. I'm only dosing 3 caps per day.

  10. I wanted to update. Stool is still green.. I don't care, I love the fullness and vascularity that comes after a meal, and NO BLOAT at any time. Unless other problems arise, I'll put up with my colorful crap

    BTW

    1 LARGE SWEET POTATO + 1 TBSP NATTY PB + (2) GLYCOBOL = HEAVEN


  11. That is funny I just had a sweetpotato, 2 glycobol and a peanut butter shake it is awesome lol

  12. I did some research over 10 years ago on vanadyl sulfate, and it was noted to possbly cause green stools. I can vouch for it too, because I had the green poo. Don't know if the BMOV would do the same or not?

  13. Yes it could be from the BMOV.

  14. WELL, if it makes anyone feel better, I have been pooping green all day, seriously!
    doing my own thang!

  15. Haha same here. Very green.

    Don't think its anything to worry about though.

    Will say, I think its effects at night before bed are knocking me out a bit too much. I'm a pretty heavy sleeper normally, so I dunno if I'm going to keep up the pre-bed dose. I love the fullness the next morning, but I'm pretty groggy for awhile, even after 8-10 hours of sleep.

  16. Pooping green and it's not even St Patrick's day,lol.

  17. I've dropped green deuces from two things:
    1) Drinking ~90oz or more of PURPLE Crystal Light in a day
    2) When my fiber intake was so high that I was dropping by the bathroom about every four hours to deuce (I'm guessing that's what DG806's post is about )

  19. It is yellow.

    That berberine powder could change could change charcoal to yellow lol

  21. Vanadium has purported cholesterol lowering effects. I wonder if the "green" color, which is linked to increased intestinal motility and as one member pointed out is linked with green stools, is part of the reason.

    Faster intestinal motility reduces the amount of bile acid reabsorption, and bile acid is the way that we get cholesterol into our bodies and out of it. It is excreted into the lumen of the small intestine to help with fat solubilization, which brings with it cholesterol. The acids are then reabsorbed with the fat...some are eventually excreted. If we aren't reabsorbing as much, this might explain some of the MOA of cholesterol lowering with vanadium.

    Thoughts?

    Interesting.. And thanks everyone for chiming in! BTW I've been eating what should be considered an illegal amount of carbs and still leaning out. Glycobol is no joke!

    Another interesting thing I've noticed is the odor of my urine the first time I pee after dosing Glycobol. The best way I could describe it is ("Asparagus Pee"). Sulfur-like. Subsequent urinations don't produce the same odor. Anyone else share the same experience?

    Yup, anytime I take something with alpha lipoic acid in it, and Glycobol has a very potent version of it.
