What does it mean when your poop is green?

Report as

Bowel movements that are green are often that way due to non-harmful reasons. The biggest reason is dietary. Perhaps you’ve been eating a lot of dark leafy greens like kale or spinach? If the condition persists, and you are sure you are not eating a lot of dark leafy greens, see a doctor to check for gastrointestinal issues.

Green colored stool may just be a sign that you have eaten a green food or that the food has passed too quickly through your digestive tract. For more information, please visit http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/stool-color/AN00772.

One main reason for your stool could be green is from eating green leafy vegetables. It could also be green from it passing to quickly through your intestine.

The color of your bowel movement can change color depending on what you have eaten. If you have had a lot of Kool Aid the dye in the Kool Aid can turn your stool green.

When the stool is green, it is likely the result of something you've eaten. Commonly licorice and leafy green vegetables like spinach can cause greens stool.

If your feces is green, this is likely related to the foods you've been eating. It likely means that you have been eating foods with dyes in them.
