The most common cause for bloody stool is hemorrhoids, which may be internal type or external type. It is mostly observed at times of constipation. Stool with bright red color indicates bleeding in the rectum portion. The red color is an unoxidized blood, thus, suggesting that bleeding occurs immediately before the stool passes out. Another reason for blood in stool may be the consumption of beets and other red food items.
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.
There are certain precautions that need to be taken while going for stool softeners. If you are pregnant or are planning to get pregnant during the course, then you'd better get your physician's opinion. Also, follow all the instructions that come along with the drug, to avoid any side effects.
Along with fiber, even Omega-3 fatty acids work as natural stool softener. They help in preventing constipation and providing relief from its discomfort. The foods that fall under this category are walnuts, canola, tofu, salmon, sardines, herring, mackerel, flax seed, and tuna. These foods help in cleaning and toning the intestines along with softening stool.
