Dear GreenSmoothieGirl: This is kind of a personal (and slightly embarrassing) question here but I really need to ask it. I have read that dark colored urine means that all the vitamins you take aren’t being absorbed into your body. What about green feces? Is that a good or bad sign? Is it typical? Answer: […]
