Can't diagnose: if you have IBS or Crohns or tell you if you should take a probiotic. Green stool can occur when there is rapid transit time through the gut. It can also be caused by eating green foods. Lactobacillus bulgaricus, Bifantis, Lactobacillus GG, Bacillus Coagulans, Bacillus Subtilis, Lactobacillus Salivarius are probiotics which can aid digestive problems.
