The squatty potty has been shown in research to reduce constipation and increase ease of evacuation. The modern day toilet is convenient, but has one major fault; it requires us to sit. While sitting to do our business may be considered “civilized”, studies show the natural squat position improves our ability to eliminate. The squatting position changes the angle and relaxes the puboractalis muscle allowing smooth and complete bowel evacuation. Studies have shown that using the squatty potty and aids complete evacuation, reduces time spent on the toilet and prevent excessive straining. By raising the feet, the squatty potty ensures beneficial posture to aid emptying of the bowels, whilst maintaining the convenience of the sitting position.
