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.
There are many other causes also which may result in green color stool. Some liver disorder like jaundice may cause you green stool. Apart from this, the first stool of infants known as meconium is dark green in color and is very normal. Irritable bowel syndrome can also cause green color in stool.
Consumption of laxatives in excess may cause the stool color to turn green as laxatives aim at cleansing the system of toxicities. Thus, the toxins are cleared as laxatives consist a high dosage of fiber content and roughage, also helping in smooth bowel movement. Due to this, diarrhea accompanied with soft, green-colored stool is the result.
