We have finally understood that watching our health is important. Yet we often forget to pay attention to the signals our body sends us.
Let’s figure out things your poop says about your health:
#Poop Shape (types of poops and what they mean)
Meaning: Perfect stool
Try to maintain a balanced diet, and avoid stressful situation to keep things as great as they are.
Meaning: Severe constipation
This type of stool means your body lacks fiber,consume more fiber-rich products like wholewheat pasta, raspberries, and lentils.
Meaning: Normal stool
You’re doing just fine! Don’t forget to walk and drink more and more water.
Meaning: Mild diarrhea
Maybe there’s too much fiber in your diet,drink more to avoid dehydration, and stick to boiled potatoes and bananas.
#Poop Color (different colors and what they mean)
Black stool may appear because of medicine intake or a more common cause lies in the food you eat black and blue foods.
Red stool is usually influenced by your diet. Beets, colored drinks, tomatoes…just think about what you have consumed recently and may be an anal fissure or something more serious like ulcerative colitis or even cancer.
Yellow stool can be a sign of blocked bile ducts and poor fat absorption. Another reason is a lack of enzymes produced by the pancreas. But don’t panic! Yellow poop can also be a sign that you ate too many carrots or had lots of yellow-colored drinks.
A green color may be caused by the consumption of vegetables rich in chlorophyll (like spinach), green food coloring in drinks. If food is not the reason, it means your stool passed the digestive tract too quickly and didn’t have time to get enough bile and bilirubin.
Whitish, grayish, or clay-colored stool indicates a lack of bile. It may hint at problems with the liver and gallbladder as these are organs where bile is produced and stored.
