Question Primal Defense

Hi all,
I have a question for anyone using primal defense. I just started taking them 4 days ago and am feeling better. My question is concerning elimination of black stringy (very small) matter after taking the primal defense. The past two days I have had loose bowel (not uncommon for me) and they have been full of small black string like particles. I was wondering if that was result of taking the primal defense.

Thank you in advance for any help.

Hey Colby,
I take Primal Defense on a regular basis and it sort turns my stool very dark. I think I would be constipated if I didn't take psyllium/ Metamucil. Some parts do come out very dark but they look dark green--- not black.

Thank you for the response Harry. I sure hope this stuff is all it says it is. I had taken a few different probiotics prior to this, but I am actually feeling better on just 5 days of the Primal Defense. Maybe it's my mind helping it along .

I think it helps. I have the same dark stool. But I am switching to VSL#3 in a few days. 450 billion bacteria per packet. That is billion not million. They use it as cedar sinai NY for treating some IBSers.
