Does Fish Oil Supplements Make Your Bowel Movements Dark Green?

I just started taking fish oil supplements because I have high blood pressure. But can it turn your bowel movements dark green, because mine just started once I started taking the supplements.

Answer

Hi Awakefield16,

I am not familiar with a connection between fish oil and dark green stools. I recommend discussing with your physician to identify the cause.

All the best,
