The Original Squatty Potty took the world by storm when it was introduced by Bill, Judy and Bobby Edwards from Utah, USA. We will be continuously expanding our range in Australia starting with Squatty Potty Ecco in both 7 inch and 9 inch sizes.
The Squatty Potty is designed so we can squat rather than sit when we poop. Believe or not, this is the position we should be in to eliminate properly for a healthy system. Our colon has a natural kink in it to maintain continence. The sitting position we take up on a toilet, with our feet on the floor, partially relaxes the puborectalis muscle, which is the muscle around the colon which blocks the flow of waste.
We can all thank Judy Edwards’ doctor for the Squatty Potty. Judy had been suffering from constipation for most of her life and her doctor suggested that squatting on the toilet, rather than sitting, would relax her colon and ease her problem. Judy told her son, Bobby, about the doctor’s advice and so the prototype of the Squatty Potty was born.
