Health Benefits of the Squatty Potty
The alignment of the recto-anal angle is essential for smooth bowel elimination. The recto-angle is only open when we squat and our butts are below our knees. Unfortunately, our toilet bowls place our knees at a 90 degrees making butt and knee on the same angle. This causes excessive straining with the potential for damage to the recto-anal region and, possibly, to the colon and other organs associated with bowel movements.
For instance, constipation is caused by many factors and is only worsened with the use of common toilet seats. Constipation is one of the most common gastrointestinal (GI) problems, affecting about 42 million people in the United States. The difficulties of constipation are caused by the obstructive nature of the recto-anal angle and its association with the sitting posture many of use.
By elevating the knees, the Porta Squatty allows for a fully relaxed puborectalis muscle (fully open recto-angle) and a smooth bowel movement; most importantly, the Porta Squatty allows you to enjoy full bowel movements no matter where you are.
