Squatty Potty: Does it Work?

A new device promises to change your bathroom experience by improving proper toilet posture. It's called the Squatty Potty. But does it work?

Owner Robert Edwards says it relieves the strain associated with eliminating, so hemorrhoids and constipation are readily helped. He says it is designed to create a squatting position while sitting on the toilet.

Gastroenterologist Dr. Steven King says posture makes a big difference for short people and children.

"What this does, it puts you in an easier position. The more bent you are, the easier it is to have a bowel movement. The straighter you are the harder it is to have a bowel movement," says Dr. King.

So the verdict: Yes, it certainly works and experts say is worth the money.
