We all know that regular bowel movement is needed for a healthy body, but did you know that proper toilet posture can also help a lot? According to studies, the most effective way to to do so is by maintaining a 35-degree posture that can only be achieved by squatting–something we can’t do on our regular toilets. A U.S. couple then thought up of a simple, yet surprisingly effective solution: the Squatty Potty, a stool that guarantees the optimum posture. It’s not available in the Philippines, but we can still get the benefits of squatting by substituting it with other stools that are more readily available. See how it works in the video below.
