So today . . . let's continue our discussion about "poop"
Yesterday we discovered that "pooping" every day is a healthy thing.
But what does it mean when you don't have the "urge" to poop at all???
Well . . . this would be "neurogenic bowel" . . . which causes a loss of normal bowel function. And these damaged nerves disrupt the connection between the colon (large intestine) and the brain which can result in constipation.
Okay . . . so next question . . .
How long is "normal" to sit on the toilet to take a "poop"???
Well . . . the average bowel movement takes "12 seconds" . . . you heard me right people . . . "12 seconds" and it should take no longer than "10 minutes" to accomplish that mission.
So if you're a toilet sitter because you're waiting for that "poop" to come . . . this may not be a healthy pass time.
Okay . . . one more question . . . does your "poop" float or sink in the towel???
Well . . . "floating" stool are considered an indication of a high fat content which means the body is "not" absorbing enough healthy fats or other nutrients from the food we eat.
Therefore . . . "poop" that sinks means this is healthy "poop" because the healthy fats from our diet were absorbed leaving no fat for the "poop" to eliminate.
So how do "digestive enzymes" help with bowel movements???
Well . . . because they help the body break down fats, carbohydrates and proteins . . . they promote healthy digestion, healthy "gastrocolic reflex" and a healthy "urge" for a bowel movement.
And if you need information on "compliant digestive enzymes" . . . please DM me and I'll give you my recommendation.
