    shred...makes me poop, is there a problem


    i take shred imediatley after my first meal of the day...minutes after, 5-25 minutes after, i need to poop....

    every time, even when i don't have to go, this makes me go

    should i take shred before the meal???? why is this happening or is it just a side effect i need to live with?

    thanks : steve

    i don't know if this stuff has magnesium (spelling) in it or not, but any pre-w/o stuff that i take that does haveit in there.....makes me go to. you're fine though, and i wouldn't really call it a side effect, well not a bad one. you can have you're drink, do your business in the bathroom and then go lift without having to go in the middle. i don't know about you but when i'm repeatly tighting my stomach muscles, if i have anything in my bowels i normally have to make a trip to the bathroom while training

    This thread is going to get real disgusting really quick but anyways, what is your stool like? Are you having a bowel movement prior to eating? How consistently has this happened? Have you tried taking the Shred prior to your first meal as the instructions state?

    Gymnema and Corsolic Acid are both smooth muscle relaxer causing your intestinal muscles to relax after ingestion which causes the increase bowel movements. Nothing to be worried about as it's just doing it's job. The sides will usually stop after a few days of continuous use, much like what happens with the use of Coleus type products.
