Sometimes the comforts and luxuries of modern life go against the human body's natural design and can have significant effects on our health. The way we use the loo is the perfect example; many of us couldn't imagine what damage we could be doing to ourselves by sitting down for a number two. Humans are anatomically designed to squat, other animals, and since the prevalence of the modern sit-down toilet we've been causing ourselves serious health problems. With a SquattyPotty your bowel will empty more effectively, more easily and more fully! No straining, pushing or laxatives - just as nature intended SquattyPotty is a simple but effective aid that helps you to achieve the optimal squatting position when using the loo. It raises your knees upwards so that you can lean forward and gently press your abdomen onto your thighs. Your rectal muscles will go into elimination mode and you will experience a complete and healthy bowel movement without excessive straining. Designed to be stored neatly underneath the toilet set bowl, the SquattyPotty has been specially engineered so that your knees are at a 35ᵒ angle from your hips, the perfect squatting position. The health benefits of squatting to defecate are numerous, and whether you have a specific problem you want to tackle or just want to generally improve your bowel heath, the SquattyPotty will help. More complete bowel movements eliminate bloating and help your body to absorb all the essential nutrients from your food so that you feel healthier and full of energy. Those who suffer from severe, regular constipation will find relief and help to prevent further build-ups. Haemorrhoids will be reduced and prevented, and those with bowel disease will find using the toilet far less painful. Pregnant women will experience relief too as the squatting position avoids pressure on the uterus and helps to prepare the abdominal and pelvic floor muscles for a natural delivery.
