Concerned and backed-up asks:

I was recently informed of a 'health product', if you will which I
quote, was supposed to result in "humungous shits!". I expirienced nothing of this nature, so far... So tell me anyone if you have heard of kefir. If you have expirienced its phenomenon let me know. I am a regular shitter-at least once a day, and since ingesting this product about 4 days ago, I have taken no more than 3 measly shits. (okay, one was normal size, but nothing to write home about) anyways...this product is not to cause diarrhea or anything of the like. It is just supposed to make you have really big shits. so here i am waiting..if i could just shit the size i used to i would be happy. But now my cats shit is bigger than mine.
yours truly,
concerned and backed-up


Dear Concerned and Backed Up,

Kefir is basically a cultured bacterial product that also contains yeast. It is beneficial to the person using it because of the colonization of the good bacteria in the digestive system that results from the consumption of this stuff.

Kefir is intended for long-term continued use to promote a healthy environment in the digestive system. Like other health food supplements, the benefits from using them appear over a period of time, not overnight.

It is not intended to be used as a "colon cleansing" product.
In fact, the makers of this product recommend that before a person even begins to consume the kefir, that they first use some kind of colon cleansing product that is intended specifically for that purpose. In order for the bacteria in the kefir to be able to take up residence in the digestive tract, the intestines must be clear of any build-up.

It sounds as though you may have stopped yourself up with this stuff since you did not go through a cleansing process before taking the kefir. You should get some "colon blow", or some TNT or something and blow all that shit out of there and start all over.

Thanks for asking Motherload!

I vote for the TNT. Nothing like explosive diarrhea.

I've drunk kefir before. It's like very thick, liquid yogurt and comes in various flavors. As Motherload indicates, it's for the promotion of healthy bacterial cultures in your gut. I've never experienced any explosive output because of kefir. It's always been soothing to my system. I recommend it if you're interested in settling down your system.

But don't expect 'humongous shits.'

Kefir sounds like a South African racial slur.
Why does this guy want to have large turds? It sounds like a fetish to me.

If I drink some Kefir and get some good bugs growing in my pipe, can these beneficial bacteria be killed by something I consume, like hot pepper, opium, alcohol, etc.?

Is there a product out there that genuinely delivers on its promise of helping a person produce big poo?

Metamucil. Without a doubt.

I think a lot of these "Colon health" products are being marketed to the Hypocolondriacs. It's assinine to think every turd will be the same or that you will achieve a certain uniformity with your poops. We inhale and ingest millions of bacteria each day and our bodies react accordingly. If you are stopped up always or haven't had a solid poo for months then quite likely a visit to a physician would be wise. My experience is that those people self medicating have a quack as their doctor.

Kefir has good bacteria (Acidophilous). These bacteria need time to colonise. Not every person is capable of producing huge turds. Different people, have different bowel capacities and even Kefir cannot change that.

I'd never heard of kefir before I read this article. Wish I had known about it back when I was stupid enough to take that antibiotic that killed everything in my digestive tract. The doctor told me to eat yoghurt, but every time I tried I gagged. The stuff was disgusting. Of course, this was before I found the organic stuff without all the damn chemicals in it. Apparently, I was reacting to the added chemicals in the regular yogurt.

I started drinking Kefir by Lifeway a few days ago... it's better than coffee! I've gone from no poop, to coffee poop (the gassy, fluffy kind, but I had to stop lest I become addicted to coffee just for the poop), back to no poop, to at least two well formed poops a day!

Yay kefir!

From time to time when my system gets out of whack, I will return to kefir. I posted previously that I've tried it before, and it's worked well for me. It creates beneficial flora in your digestive tract.

If you like yogurt and don't mind a slightly tart taste, it's pretty tasty, too.

for magically "clean" superpoop, take 2 tablespoons of psyllium husks a day. (in any liquid you like, doesn't matter)

I just bought Kefir yesterday in the hopes that it will keep things going regularly. I try to start my day with a cup of cocoa with steamed milk. It seems to do the job, but when it doesn't I don't feel good at all. I used to drink cappuccino and take Oxy Powder but stopped because I didn't want my body to get use to strong stimulants. I'm hoping kefir is the wonder elixir that many claim it is.

I recently started drinking kefir as defense against antibiotics (which I had to take for my cold), and within days, voila! I've been famous for always doing huge #2 but it's really gotten huuuuge. One end is deep down the toilet bowl and the other end is sticking out of water, like a dog's tail. I wish I could post a photo of this morning's.

What I want to know is will kefir give you the shits when you first start drinking it?
Just bought some for the fist time. Drank about 6oz the first day, no problem. Day two had about 10oz then shit my pants twice. Sounds like men are working in my gut, can't stop farting, my ass feels like it's on fire. I just hope that this means this shit is working in a good way. Looking for some feed back!

Kefir is said to give you the shits at 24 hours of fermentation
and a firm poo with a longer process , say after 4 days.
I find drinking it as soon as it is ready 24 hours gives me a decent runny poo.

I started a week ago with Bio-Kefir and every time after the drink I get horrible smelling gas.
I wonder why?
