The correct posture is important when you sit on the toilet. We sit in an unnatural position, especially with a raised toilet. Your bowel opens up much better in a squatting position. This is how we have been evaluated over thousands of years. By placing your feet on this specially designed step, you will notice a better and more complete relief.
At first glance, this may seem like a minor, perhaps even superfluous, adjustment. But it makes a world of difference whether you defecate completely every day or whether an average 20% remains in the intestines. And by adopting a squatting position, or in this case placing your feet on a stool, you achieve that complete relief. It's like cleaning with a jet of water. Once you've experienced the comfort and health benefits, you'll never want to be without it.
✓ Better gut health
✓ Less constipation
✓ No more pressing (and therefore less chance of hemorrhoids, for example)
✓ A feeling of relief
✓ Relax your pelvic floor muscles while urinating
This Squatty Potty is admittedly a fraction more expensive than a cheap plastic stool. But it's more than worth it. The correct height for your toilet guarantees that you automatically assume the correct squatting position. In addition, the Squatty Potty is of course better shaped than a 'regular' stool so that you can really mimic the squatting position (instead of just raising your knees). Thanks to the non-slip surface for your feet and non-slip rubbers under the legs, your feet and the stool will not slip. Due to its shape, the Squatty Potty fits completely under your toilet, so it doesn't get in the way and last but not least, this model looks a lot more elegant than a 'normal' stool.
