Are you ready to take the blue poop challenge and what might it be able to tell you about your health?
The challenge involves eating foods that are dyed blue and then tracking how long it takes to see blue feces in the toilet and gastroenterologist Dr. Su Sachar and epidemiologist Dr. Tim Spector join The Doctors to discuss.
Dr. Sachar explains gut health and the good bacteria in our stomachs can be linked to obesity, heart health, and immune health and she is excited this challenge is raising awareness about the connection between gut health to overall health.
Dr. Spector explains in order to learn more about someone's gut microbes, the transit time (the amount of time it takes foods to pass through the body) needed to be tracked and says the challenge provides a snapshot of the state of someone's gut microbes.
"The slower the transit time... the less healthy the microbes," he tells us, sharing that some people in his study had transit times of 4 to 5 days, which is considered very slow.
The Doctors say transit times can vary from person to person with the average time being 28 hours, but in his study, Dr. Spector says transit times ranged from 10 hours up to 5 days.
