It is said that a diet that a pregnant woman follows, influences the color of bowel movement. During pregnancy, doctors often advice women to follow a healthy diet. Having nutritious meals during pregnancy greatly reduces the risk of birth defects in babies. It is very important that a pregnant woman gets adequate vitamins and minerals for a healthy delivery. Pregnant women tend to eat green leafy vegetables like spinach and broccoli as they are jam-packed with essential nutrients. The chlorophyll (green pigment) present in these vegetables is the one that mixes with the fecal matter, causing green bowel movement. In simple words, excess consumption of green veggies is bound to change the stool color, which is usually green.
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.
