A major defect in the digestive system may cause malabsorption of food particle consisting essential nutrients in the intestinal tract. Digestive problems also include constipation and diarrhea. An inadequate fat breakdown or an individual who endures lactose intolerance may encounter this condition. Lactose intolerance may also lead to an individual having a bout of diarrhea.
Most of the time, it is due to something they eat. Other times, bile gets mixed into the stools. Some of the causes of green feces in children are explained in the following paragraphs.
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.
Chlorophyll rich vegetables may be one of the reason behind dark green stool. If the green vegetables are taken in excess, they may cause your stool green. Hence there is no need to panic, but if you are still worried about it, then stop the consumption of green vegetables for few days and observe your stool. As green vegetables are some of the healthiest foods, start its consumption once your doubts are clear.
