Sticky Tarry Black Stool On Keto
|Sticky Tarry Black Stool On Keto|
Hi, guys today we’re gonna talk about something kind of disgusting, someone wanted to know why do I have a sticky tarry black stool on keto.
So for those of you that have this, let’s kind of go into why you might have this, it’s basically unabsorbed fat when you are transitioning from running on sugar for many many years, and then you’re going to actually burn fat and you’re going to consume more fat it’s going to take some time to make this transition or this adaptation.
You have to make new enzymes, you have to make more bile your whole body has to adjust to it in that transition phase. which is just temporary you may end up with some fatty stool too much fat in the stool, so still my float might be greasy, it might leave skid marks on the toilet and that condition is actually called steatorrhea which you’re overloading the colon with more fat.
Then it can actually handle, now there are other causes of this but if you’re just starting keto and this starts happening the most likely reason is because you’re in the transition phase and you’re kind of overloading the colon with too much fat at this point, because your body hasn’t adapted to it.
Here are some other reasons and I reason I want to bring this up is that if you make the changes, that I’m going to suggest and it doesn’t solve this problem and it goes on for a period of time, get with your doctor and check because there could be an ulcer possibly or a hemorrhoid pancreatic disease, you could have exocrine gland insufficiency.
Basically you’re not producing the sufficient enzyme that the pancreas is supposed to and then you can’t break down, certain food particles, it could be l ain’t too many iron pills side-effect from some medication and the list goes on and on and on, so when you overload the colon with more fat, than it can handle you’re getting an incomplete digestion of fat, and you can at the same time how deficiency is a vitamin A like your vision at night vitamin D vitamin E vitamin K omega-3 because of course, these are fat-soluble nutrients.
So if we take a look at right here, we have the stomach it has a certain amount of acid, your body is designed to have a certain concentration of this hydrochloric acid, and if you have the right amount of acid then you’ll be able to trigger the bile release from the liver and then the gallbladder will have enough bile in a certain concentration to release at a meal so there’s a lot of problems that can happen with this right here, and one can be don’t have enough acid in which case you know.
I recommend betaine how to chloride or outside a vinegar to start to build up your stomach acid, but realize that your body actually can adapt to this new diet over a period of time, and actually start making more acid just because it needs more acid, not just to break down protein, but also has a function of releasing the bile now what does the bile.
Kind of like the detergent that breaks down the grease, but it’s not breaking down the fat to the smallest particle, that the body can use it just breaks it down to a certain level it needs help from the pancreas so the pancreas makes this thing called lipase which is an enzyme that breaks down lipids and this enzyme takes what the bile did to a certain level and breaks it down to the smallest level.
So the body could start using it, so there could be potentially a problem with the pancreas there could be a problem with the gallbladder there could be a problem with the stomach, there can even be a problem with your friendly bacteria not having enough, because the friendly bacteria help recycle the bile you recycle like over 90% of your bile so in finding the cause it could be a problem with this or even the lower digestive system, but the biggest suggestion I’m going to give right now, is simply to give it more time.
Your body can adapt and possibly cut down some of the fats, the other situation that this might occur is when you go to the room at one meal a day, so here you are doing three meals and then two meals and then you go down to one meal a day, were you doing this math especially in the beginning you do this massive meal, because you’re thinking oh my gosh.
I’m not going to eat for 23 hours I better really a lot and you overload the system with just too much food too much fat and then you have this right here that could be another situation in which case again give it more time let your body adapt and you can also support your system with various things, like outside a vinegar-like betaine hydrochloride which is an acidifier, like purified bile salts, but purified bile salts will help you break down the fat, and you have to take this after you eat not before and you take the acid before the meal, so you drink it up cider vinegar or take them in tablets before the meal and then after the meal you can even take digestive enzymes.
So that’s another thing that you can do just to assist this whole process you can even take a friendly bacteria to also help you in this process all right so basically what I wanted to do with this video is just to increase your awareness and what’s happening you don’t freak out it happens with quite a few people it’s temporary and just give it some time and definitely support your system in the process thanks.
