Have you heard of the Beet Test?
It's a simple way to see how your well your digestion and elimination systems are working. Transient time is the time that it takes one to completely digest and eliminate a meal; the time it takes to go from first bite to bowel movement. Transit time can be calculated by eating beets! Eat some beets and then watch and wait. Within a day or two, your stool should have turned a pink/purple/light red color. Ideally, transit time should be within 24-48 hours. Any longer means means your digestion and elimination systems are sluggish.
