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.
Now comes the next 'important' change that will have to be done to your lifestyle. Along with the food habits, you will have to incorporate some form of physical activity in your daily routine. It can be walking exercise, swimming, yoga, aerobics or any other. However, make sure you consume sufficient quantities of water after you workout.
Dark Red or Maroon Colon cancer, internal bleeding of the lower section of the GI tract, internal hemorrhoids, anal fissure, diverticulitis, colon polyps etc. are some of the major causes of this color.
