I know that water is not food, but it can help in softening stool as well. It is recommended that you drink at least 2 liters or slightly more than eight 8 oz. glasses of water each day. Water aids in digesting our food and softening stool too. The amount of water you need to drink each day will vary as per your geographic location. If you are living in a more dry, warm area, then you should drink more water.
There is this green fluid known as bile that is secreted or produced by the liver. This fluid goes into the small intestine or it gets stored in the bladder. It is required for the absorption of fat and fat soluble vitamins. Also, the fluid is responsible for making the feces soft, and giving them the typical brown color. As the bile progresses, it changes from green to yellow and finally to brown. So in most cases, passing green stool means that the food must have passed through the intestines at a faster rate than normal, before getting changing to brown. This is known as decreased bowel transit time, and a malfunction such as this may be caused by conditions such as diarrhea. Also, stress may affect the normal digestion process and speed it up, again decreasing the transit time, thus, resulting in green stool.
The normal infant's stool color depends on their age. As they are constantly on the food change process they have different stool color as they switch to different food, like breastfeeding then bottle feeding then their initial solid food and so on.
Come pregnancy and expect significant changes in the body posture. If that wasn't enough, the increasing belly size with each passing day causes hot flashes, headaches and muscle aches, thanks to hormonal imbalance during pregnancy. It is observed that pregnant women also experience green bowel movement. The normal color of fecal matter is light brown and so excretion of green stools is definitely unacceptable. Is green color of stool attributed to hormonal changes or are there any other causes? Let's find out.
