I took taurine powder late last year (3x 1g per day) when I did a short copper detox for about a month. It made my stools consistently dark brown (were always pale yellow) which is a good indictation that my bile flow is greatly improved and that I'm dumping copper.
About a month ago I started the ARL NB program and I've been taking the same brand and amount of taurine but my stools are no longer turning dark brown so I'm not dumping copper and bile is not increasing it seems :(
I also tried NAC 600mg 2x daily for about a week now. The first day my stools did turn dark brown but the next day they reverted back to pale yellow. I'm also experiencing shoulder blade pain which I believe is due to liver/gallbladder.
Is it normal for the stools to remain yellow for so long WITH supplements like taurine/NAC?
