► The color and the subsequent consistency of stools depends on various factors. While white or black stools could pose to be a cause of concern, green stool should not be a cause of much turmoil, if you notice it once in a while. This could be due to the medication one is on, or may also be due to a diet full of green leafy vegetables, that leads to a green-colored excreta.◄
Many food products such as candies, cake frosting, ice-cream, etc,. contain artificial food colors. Certain drinks also contain artificial color. These colors may result in green color stool. These food colors are unhealthy, hence you should avoid the consumption of products having artificial color.
As we all know, the liver produces a green colored digestive juice known as the bile. The production of bile is necessary to ensure proper digestion of food. It is a known fact that stool formation takes place in the large intestine. When the bile enters the large intestine, it eventually turns yellowish brown and then mixes with the stool. This is the reason why stool appears brown in color. However, if the bile and the stool formed move quickly out of the large intestine, it is unlikely that the bile will become yellow. So, with the bile color remaining the same (green), the waste matter also appears greenish-yellow during bowel movement.
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.
