For stool to pass properly through the bowels, fiber is needed. Fiber gives the stool its bulk and helps its movement through the intestines. When the fiber content is less, the stool has less bulk and becomes hard, dry and is more difficult to pass out. This leads to constipation, bloating and even rectal bleeding at times. Thus, it is important to consume high-fiber foods like fruits and vegetables. Including whole grains to the diet is also helpful. People with mild constipation problems can obtain relief just by consuming a high-fiber diet. Moreover, this a good stool softener for children.
The food that we eat can also influence the color of the poop. Green vegetables in the diet is necessary for optimal health. Eating green vegetables in large amounts everyday is unlikely to damage your health but this habit can produce a harmless side effect that manifests in the form of green bowel movement.
As far as normal bowel movement is concerned, there is no specific definition as it depends on several criteria. However, according to the health experts, a medial brown colored stool (or any shade of brown) is considered normal. Occasional yellow stool also signifies normal bowel movement. Other factors that signify healthy digestive system are toothpaste like consistency, sinking in water, presence of little gas, and smooth passing of stool without straining.
The bowel movement of a healthy individual is usually yellowish-brown in color. It comprises undigested food particles, intestinal bacteria, waste material, and water. However, occasional instances of spotting dark brown, green, black, or reddish-colored feces is also normal.
