Discolored stools. Could it be due to the intake of carrot juice?

2 days ago I had a beet,apple and carrot juice (in a juicer) and less than 12 hours later my bowel movement was completely magenta colored. Completely. I assumed it was from the beets in my juice. Even though its been another 24 hours past that, my movement still has that redish color to it. Is it still beet related if that at all? And how long til it will stop? Thanks.

hi there
am dr.surendiran
nice to meet you here in HCMagic
A normal bowel movement is different for each person and may vary in consistency and frequency.
Usually it contains the food that is consumed to about 3 to 4 days inside the bowel,that is totally normal,
hence you are not having any other symptoms like,pain in lower abdomen,
dont worry,
drink plenty of water and fiber rich food,that would help
hope i helped your query
regards dr.surendiran hcmagic
