Good Morning everyone ,
So this morning I noticed I had green stool. It's been awhile since I have had green stool. No other symptoms other than a little gas.
The only thing I can think of that caused it was that I had a green smoothie yesterday evening around 7 pm. This smoothie had kale and spinach in it. In addition I had some blueberries.
Does this sound normal or should I be concerned? I know stool color changes all the time but I don't see green that often.
I am 29 and suspect I have IBS but it comes and goes
I live in Cali and we love the vitamixed green smoothies. Your mail makes me simile because I had the same reaction when I first drank green smoothies I made at home.
When i make a green smoothie with a lot of Kale, apples , nuts ,coconut oil , spinach and cabbage the stool color is green and soft - now if i make a smoothie with a lot of beets the stool is dark blood red and sometimes so is the urine( This is quite alarming the first time it occurs ). When I ingest a lot of bentonite clay the stool color is gray.
if make a smoothie with a lot of turmeric the stool is golden in color .
These colors stop a day or two after drinking the smoothie and normal color returns - But Id probably get it checked out if you dont drink a smoothie but continue to see the green stool.
