The liver is responsible for producing bile. Bile is a fluid that aids in fat absorption and fat-soluble vitamins. The bile once secreted, divulges into the small intestine or in the bladder. Bile plays a major role in deciding the color of the stool and the consistency as well. The stool being thick, slim or watery, and the color being white, brown or green, depends upon the way the bile fluid functions and gets secreted. In a normal healthy stool, the bile color changes from green, progressing to yellow and finally brown. Thus, it could be concluded that the cause of green poop in adults may be due to the fact that the feces has not passed through the intestine at a normal pace, hence leaving the color unchanged. This is a malfunction of the bowel movement and is termed decreased bowel transit. Another factor contributing to the causes of green stool is the presence of mucus in the intestine. This may cause its color and the consistency to change.
