It wasn’t until a few months ago when I actually tried it and understood what the rave was all about! Since almost exclusively using the Squatty potty, I’ve noticed a huge improvement in my gut health. I then gave out Squatty potty’s to my teammates and they also agree that it’s a game changer. After hearing all of the positive feedback, I fully believe it’s time to improve how we use the restroom by simply putting our knees a little bit higher. This company is top notch and I couldn’t be more thrilled to be an ambassador for them. Make the switch to Squatty potty and trust me, you won’t go back.”
