I've never noticed much change in stool consistency from chlorophyll when I've taken it. (for odor control)Not sure you can automatically assume that if a whole plant causes something that one single compound extracted out of the whole plant will have the same effect. Now preparation would effect this. A freeze dried whole plant that is ground up may be different than something extracted as a single compound. Some of the other things in some dark green veggies (like broccoli) are known to cause gas which may increase cramping all by itself. http://www.drugs.com...hlorophyll.html
does list diarrhea and stomach cramps as a side effect. I'm not sure if you would get the cramps directly, or because you tend to get cramps when you have diarrhea anyway. No idea how much you'd have to take to loosen up the stools.K.
