Green stool can be caused by the pigments in the food and beverages.
Hence, blue powerade can contribute to it.
Another possibility can be the fast transit of the stool not giving the intestinal bacteria enough time to given characteristic stool color.
High fiber diet can cause fast transit of the stool.
Another possibility can be bleeding the upper intestine or gallbladder problem.
These conditions usually cause other symptoms as well.
Probably this is not disconcerting since you are otherwise healthy.
This just began recently. So if i limit or remove the powerade, how long till the color returns to normal?
usually within 2-3 days
ok thats a relief.
yes likely not concerning.
ok thank you very much
