Algae plays a potent role in causing this condition as they consist essential amino acids, vitamins, and minerals that are dedicated to improving the defense mechanisms, thereby helping one to feel healthy. Algae supplements when administered are known to be high in fiber content, due to which the stools may appear green. It could also be caused due to certain medications, such as iron supplements that change the color of stool drastically. Iron supplements are multivitamins having a high iron content, or even the inclusion of foods that are rich in iron, may cause green stool due to the body's incapability of absorbing excess iron. The body supplements the need by introducing iron salts into the system due to which its color may turn green.
For stool to pass properly through the bowels, fiber is needed. Fiber gives the stool its bulk and helps its movement through the intestines. When the fiber content is less, the stool has less bulk and becomes hard, dry and is more difficult to pass out. This leads to constipation, bloating and even rectal bleeding at times. Thus, it is important to consume high-fiber foods like fruits and vegetables. Including whole grains to the diet is also helpful. People with mild constipation problems can obtain relief just by consuming a high-fiber diet. Moreover, this a good stool softener for children.
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.
