orange colored stool

I started what is called "Herbal Tea Concentrate" from Herbal Life about a month ago.  Three days ago when I had a BM --- when I wiped it was bright orange.  Every time I have gone after that it has been orange on the toilet paper, but not quite as orange as the first time.  Is this a side effect of this Herbal Tea? I have done nothing else different.  The only other medication I take is Omeprazole.  Thank you

What about dropping this tea to sea?

No pain, no diarhea (diarrhea), no blood - no disease.

Short answer: probably. Orange stools are either a diet thing (most common) or a biliary thing.

Foods that can cause orange stool include:

    * Any food with artificial yellow or orange coloring
    * Carrots
    * Cilantro
    * Collard greens
    * Fresh thyme
    * Kale
    * Sweet potatoes
    * Spinach
    * Turnip greens
    * Winter squash

If stool is still orange when it is eliminated, it could mean that it is not being exposed to, or absorbing enough, bile salt. One reason that stool may not be absorbing enough bile is that the stool is moving through the body too quickly. This could be caused by a variety of reasons, including diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, or short bowel syndrome. A second cause is a lack of bile, which could mean that the body is not making enough bile, or that the bile ducts are blocked. A blockage in the bile ducts can be caused by gallstones, inflammation, cysts or tumors.
