Fish Oil And Bowel Movements
For constipation, does eating more fats and oils (such as plenty of olive oil) a good treatment? Does bile secreted after oily food make bowels move?
The gastrointestinal tract starts at the mouth, travel down the tunnel (esophagus), which connects to the stomach, which then empties into the duodenum, jejunum, and ileum---the three parts of the small intestine (@25 feet).

Like to eat vegetables by sauteing them in 2-3 tbsp of oil and some spices.Is it healthy to have vegies like this everyday?2-3 tbsp oil is not frying?
Which oil? That is: most important to know before answering this question.If it's GMO canola, peanut, or vegetable oil, STOP! If you are using virgin, cold pressed olive oil and sauteing at low temp, that is okay! Raw, virgin coconut oil is better to put on after cooking.If the veges are browning, then that is almost frying, as you are forming acrylamides (browning) on your food and should be careful.Hope this helps. ...Read more
What's too much omega 3 consumption perday? I consume ground flax as well fish or fish oil supplements during the day. Any studies showing a limit?
Lots of gas, bloating and green stools. Am taking a multi vitamin, the occasional antacid and codfish oil. Could these be causing the green stools?
Yes: Codfish oil(cod liver oil) can speed up the transit of food thru the gastrointestinal tract if taken in too high a dose. Bile is green in color. As it travels thru the gut it's color is changed, eventually to brown. Greenish color can be the result of intestinal contents not remaining in the gut long enough to turn brown. Should return to normal color if codfish oil is stopped. SEE:abt.cm/144EnVu ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
