As adults eat proper solid food, their stool color normally varies from light to medium brown. Their stool color meanings can be easily revealed as any change in their normal stool color can be a sign of some or the other disorder.
A stool analysis for color and texture variations as well as microbial content, is important for the detection and/or confirmation of several diseases. However, in most cases, such variations are simply due to dietary changes, and may not be a cause for concern.
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'.
Laxatives and stool softeners are often viewed as different products that are used for treating constipation. In fact, laxatives are of different types, which include stool softeners too. So stool softeners are also laxatives. However, they differ from other types of laxatives in their mode of action and effectiveness.
