Symptoms, conditions and causes

What are the causes for pale colored stool?

If your digestive system is working properly, your stool color should be brown. Pale-colored stool is a symptom of bile problems. Bile is produced in the liver and is stored in the gallbladder to help your digestive system.


• Pale stool

• Clay-colored stool

Cause #1: Blockage or lack of bile

If bile is not being produced in the liver, or there is a blockage in the bile ducts to the intestines, these can result in loss of pigmentation in the gut, causing pale stool. So pale-colored stool could mean you have a blockage in the bile ducts, or your liver isn’t producing bile, or there is a problem in your gallbladder.


  • Consume purified bile salts

  • Consume more saturated fats to increase the production of bile

  • Get a gallbladder formula

  • Do an intermittent fasting plan

  • Do the Healthy Keto® diet

Other cause:

  • Liver damage

  • Bad diet
