So Why is my poop green? The most common reason, is because it is something you have eaten. This can be from eating a large amount of green veg. Green veg, is green, obvious, and this comes from chlorophyll in the greens, and although having greens with a meal will have no effect, if you eat a large amount on their own it can. If your green stool, has any blood, read no further, pick up the phone and make an appointment to see your doctor. If it is something serious, then the earlier it is checked up on the better. But again esp. if you have been constipated,you may have a little tear in the anus area, so even if you have blood in your stool it can still be something simple, but get it checked.

Not a subject that you would bring up at the dinner table. But what your stool is like can give a good indication of how well your inners are. Think about it, if what you are eating is not coming out as it should, then something inside is not working as it should, or is working to much. You can tell this because your stool is not the right color, or texture. So when the color is not right, something must have caused it. If this only happens every now and then, the chances are that it is something that you have eaten, it has been known that ice cream sauces have caused green poop, one example where someone had ice cream once a week and next day, green poop. They figured it out by themselves just working out what they had eaten the day before.

If you are having green poop or stools on a regular basis then you may have a different problem, if in doubt it is always best to go to the doctor and have it checked up. The internet is great as a first port of call. Look for the simple things, but if you have ruled them out, then it is time to see someone who knows what they are looking for, namely a doctor,

What causes green poop

 Another reason for green poop is that to much bile is being secreted into the upper intestinal track, the bile is green in color, normally as your food is digested the color changes to brown, so either the digested food is going through a lot quicker than it should, or there is to much bile being produced. now both of these conditions can be caused through what you eat , In this case instead of it being a one off thing to do with what you have eaten, this can be a more general thing, still to do with what you have eaten, but this time, it is more to do with your diet, to much fat is not good, we are not here not talking about natural fat, but the processed type,what I call the rubbish fat, that ends up in cakes, meat pies, both in the filling as well as in the pastry, another one is biscuits, but again if you are having green poop for a number of days then get it checked.

Treatment For Green Poop

First things if your doctor has recommended a treatment then that is what you should follow. On the other hand the two main things you can do yourself, is have a look at your diet. And think about taking a colon cleanse, but make sure that it is a natural one, with no side effects. A colon cleanse is highly recommended if you have been having trouble like diarrhoea, or constipation. The colon cleanse with get rid of any waist that may still be in the colon. There are quite a few people who have them on a regular basis, like a clean out every now and then. Have a more in depth read in the category on the side bar. 

Green Poop In Children

 Green poop in children can be very alarming, although being a parent i think the worst injury is when they have a little nick on their head from where they have fallen over, or something similar, and you have not spotted it straight away, give it a minute or two and they look like they have been in a horror movie, with a little bit of blood running down their face. Sorry I digress, back to the green poop in children, again something they have eaten, and this time not necessarily food, younger kids will put anything in their mouths, for instance have they been drawing, esp. them waxy crayons, great for drawing, but also soft enough to eat. But again if in doubt get it checked out.

Why is my poop green? Most of the time it is just what you have eaten, but if there is blood in your stool, or you are getting green poop for more that a couple of days, get it checked.

Why is my poop green

On this page we are going into a little bit of biology, lets have a look at the over view of the digestive system and what normally happens.To start with you have to eat something, as you munch away, saliva is crunched up with your food in your mouth. From this point on the food is being prepared to be absorbed into you body as food, energy. After a certain time, you get the urge to swallow. The start of its journey. It goes from your mouth, then down into your esophagus, that is the small bit of tube that goes between the mouth and the stomach, into the stomach, which is like a bag, container where the food stays for a while as acids etc are added to the mix. From there it is off to the small intestine and then into the large one, and finally into the colon, again like a small sack, where the waist is held until it is full and we then need to go to the toilet

what-makes-poop-greenBut there are three other organs that are important to the digestive system, there are actually quite a few others but these are the big ones, and not always associated with digestion, they are the liver and the pancreas, along with the gallbladder which is a storage container. The length of time our food stays in the stomach depends on what it is. Carbohydrates stay the shortest, while proteins stay the longest. Once the food enters the small intestine, then the pancreas produces enzymes, which brake down fat carbohydrate and protein. Making the food easier to be absorbed into our bodies. Next in line, is the liver which produces the bile, this is green in color. And is stored in the gallbladder when it is not needed, like between meals. Bile is mainly used for breaking down fat so that it can be absorbed into the body.

What makes green poop

If our food goes through our digestive system too quickly and our stool is green this is one of the causes of green poop. The green bile has not had chance to work on our food properly and is still there at the end, hence a green stool.

Now as you can see, there is a lot that goes on that we take for granted. There can also be a lot in our diet, that the body is just not geared up to, take for instance some food colourings, if the enzymes, and other ingredients that brake down our food, can not touch the additives then they are going to pass straight through, and color our waist. What makes poop green? As I mentioned before that is the main cause by a long way, it is something that we have eaten that is couloring what comes out the other end.

Why is my poop green? 95% of the time, it is what goes in one end comes out the other!
