Stool softeners: As the name rightly suggests, stool softeners are intended to soften stools so that they can easily pass through the colon.
Stool softeners are used to loosen the stool in case of constipation. They are also known as emollient laxatives. Additional water and fats are incorporated in the stool, which makes it easier for it to be eliminated from the system. Stool softeners work in the small and large intestine and may take anywhere between 12 to 72 hours to show effect. There are two main types of stool softeners, namely natural stool softeners and the medicinal stool softeners. In the medicinal stool softeners, the main ingredient is docusate. It is important to note that these stool softeners do not induce or increase bowel movements. They are often used to prevent constipation as opposed to treat it. Therefore, they are often recommended to people, who are not supposed to strain while defecating. This brings us to the question, is it safe to use stool softeners. Well, stool softeners are safe, when they are taken in limited quantities and for a short duration only.
Bile is secreted by the liver and is stored in the gallbladder. It is of yellowish green color. Bile juice is present in the small intestine and helps in the process of digestion. When the waste material passes through the small intestine, bile juice acts on it and helps in the digestion of fats. As the stool comes in contact with the bile juice, it undergoes chemical reaction and the green color of bile changes to brown. If the stool passes more frequently than normal, then the reaction is unable to take place which results in green color stool.
Orange This color can result from malfunctioning of gallbladder, fast transit time or due to the intake of few medicines or foods like carrots and spinach which contain beta-carotene.
