My stool appears that it may have bright red blood seeping out of it. I had a beet juice, celery, carrot and cucumber juice this morning from the juicer so I'm thinking that could be it. I'm still concerned. Last night I had some sugar free gummy bears as well that did not sit well. I normally pride myself on having a tough stomach but turned to the internet to read reviews after the way they made me feel and learned that everyone has experienced similar diarrhea issues.
