What causes black stool?

Hi, I have had black poop all of yesterday, and it s continued into today. The texture and consistency of the stool is normal, and I have no other symptoms besides stool coloration. The only change in my diet has been an increase in pomegranate - is that a possible reason for the coloration?

You can wait a few days as it is a pigmented stool caused by pomegranate.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
