Apparently THIS Is What Your Poop Is Telling You About Your General Health!

There is a quick and easy way to gain insight into your overall general health. All you have to do is glance in the toilet after you go number two. Doctors and scientists have uncovered a lot of great information on what the color and consistency of poo can reveal about what’s going on inside our bodies. In particular, it can help us know whether our digestive system and gastrointestinal tract are functioning normally, or if there may be a problem.

First, it’s best to be familiar with what exactly poop is. Basically, it’s what’s left of the food you eat after it has been broken down and digested. After your body has taken and absorbed all of the nutrients it needs from that food, the remainder passes through and ends up being expelled as waste.

This waste is composed of bacteria, undigested food, dead cells, and mucus, which explains why it smells bad. Normal aspects of number 2 include going on average 1-2 times/day, but some people go more frequently and others less. As long as you’re comfortable when you go to the bathroom, it’s fine. Also, a healthy poop should slowly sink to the bottom of the toilet bowl, no floaters!

By monitoring toilet activities you can pick up on any changes or abnormal occurrences in your health. This helps you to be more aware of any potential issues going on inside you that are causing your body movements to suddenly look different. The chart below and video goes over all the various textures and shapes of poop, and sums up what each type most likely means.

The ideal excrement that a healthy body makes is sausage-shaped, smooth, and soft. It’s also borderline normal if your poop is sausage-shaped but contains cracks all over it. The cracks are a sign that your body needs more water, so up your daily intake soon before you get constipated or develop diarrhea!

In addition to texture and shape, color is also a helpful factor in terms of what your poo is telling you about your health. Everyone knows brown is the main color of poop, but it also means your movement is normal. A greenish hue may be diet related and can occur when you eat lots of leafy green vegetables, or it’s caused by food moving too quickly though the large intestine.

However, if you ever see red blood stained poo see a doctor as soon as possible because it may be a symptom of cancer.¬†Once you’re familiar with what’s normal it’s much easier to spot any potential issues or irregularities.

So do your body a favor and familiarize yourself with this chart, and don’t forget to pass it along to family and friends as well. The more everyone knows, the better! Also check WATCH the video below for more information.
