Passing green stool may point towards an unhealthy diet, stress, or medical conditions that might be affecting the body. Most often, the condition is a repercussion of ingesting certain foods. Green vegetables are known to be a common cause of green-hued feces. The same may occur post consuming medications or supplements. In some cases, green stool may indicate the presence of an infection in older kids and adults.
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.
