Hey everyone, hope you're all trying to hang in there w/ the cold and all
So I have a question. We just got a new juicer and my borther and dad have gone all juice-crazy blending in different things and drinking them a lot for supposed good health. I've heard of course that not only is juicing good for you, but is especially good for the immune system especially stuff like carrots and stuff. So I had a full cup of carrot and pineapple juice (pure-directly from the juicer) today, and within an hour or two I rushed to the bathroom -it was diarrhea and I realized what had come out was just the juice. I was talking to a friend about it, and she said that going to the bathroom right/soon after juicing isn't always neccessarily bad for it cleanses your system, unlike other things we drink or eat that stay in our system for days (in my case - hours). It sounded really logical to me, and I don't recall really any pain, however we're so different when it comes to stuff like this that I just thought I'd ask some of you guys and see if anybody has had any experience with this or if there are specific rule-of-thumbs I should remember or something. Of course I know some obvious no-brainers like no PRUNE JUICE!! Lol that stuff goes right through me of course. Also, for most of you who don't know, I don't have a colon so thins go through me much much faster and I could dehydrate extremely fast.
Also one more thing; anybody ever have any BAD experiences with probiotics??
