Symptoms, conditions and causes

Why do I have blood in stool?

If you have a red-colored stool this can simply come from consuming too many beets, which make it appear as if you have blood leaking. However it can also stem from hemorrhoids.

Cause #1: Hemorrhoids

Hemorrhoid is a dilated, inflamed vein on the bottom part of your rectum or inside it that is painful and can cause bleeding. Consuming collinsonia root as well as natural vitamin C complex would help with this condition.

Remedies:

  • Consume collinsonia root

  • Consume natural vitamin C complex (not ascorbic acid)

Cause #2: Consuming beets

If you consume a lot of beets they can give the appearance that the stool is bloody. This is only due to the beet’s red color.

Remedies:

You can stop consuming beets if you want.
