Most often it is from some food coloring (it doesn't even have to be green - there is some purple coloring that does it, among others) or additive.

Re: why am i having green bowel movements?

Will I have been drinking grape juice and red wine do you think that is why?

Green stools may be bacteria, or a green or blue food eaten. Green, blue, or yellow artificial colorings too. Licquorice does it for me.

Re: why am i having green bowel movements?

This may sound strange but i recently took my child to see a chiropractor and the chiro asked me if my child had been having greenish coloured poos, I replied that he had and he told me that his back was out right in the area that can have some effect on bowel movements, he corrected his back and the green colour has now gone. Just a thought or idea of something different to try. The back's nervous system controls alot of the body functions.

Re: why am i having green bowel movements?

I just recently had a flight from the East Coast to the West Coast. At the airport I bought a blueberry bagle and when eating it on the plane I noticed the whole thing looked blue, even the breading part of the bagle. The next day I had heavy green stools that lasted for two days. After two days it went away so it was obvious that the bagel and the dyes had something to do with it. Hope that is similar to your case.

Re: why am i having green bowel movements?

when I was a v small child I had them frequently (at least this is what I was told!) too much sugar is what the procto told my parents. as far as I'm aware that was correct ...at least in my case.
