The liver produces bile juice that is bright green in color. It is stored in the gallbladder from where it passes down to the intestinal tract. When it travels down the intestine, the color changes from bright green to brown. During normal digestion, the process takes enough time for the bile to change color. However, when bile reaches the intestine faster than normal time, it gets mixed up with the stools without change in color. This is called 'rapid transit' or 'decrease colonic time'.
But any change in the color and the shape of stool can reflect an internal problem of the body. Hence, it is very important for a person to know about the chart for human stool color which can tell the color and the possible bowel problem going on in the body.
The high iron content in these supplements is the reason why stool appears greenish in color. Although, iron requirements rise due to increased quantity of blood during pregnancy, there is a possibility that some amount of supplemental iron might not get absorbed. This malabsorption of iron prompts the body to eliminate iron salts during bowel movements. As a result, the stools get an unusual color that is seen in shades of green.
