How Does Poo Move You? - ReNew Life Giveaway


Let's face it, talking about poo can be taboo.  It's not something we usually want to discuss with our friends or family.  Yet, it's as important of topic as any.  I'll be honest with you, I have a poor digestive system.  For over fifteen years, I've struggled with many health issues in that area and I'm still trying to get the proper diagnosis for my problem. 

ReNew Life, the leading digestive care company in the US, created a humor-centric How Does Poo Move You? Young Adult Education Outreach Initiative to educate and connect with a younger, broader demographic.  Most young adults do not pay attention to their digestive health, nor have the knowledge to counteract or naturally treat digestive health issues and common issues.  With a focus on "potty" humor, ReNew ran a two-month long video submission contest and spread a wide variety of tactics to spread campaign themes.  Today, the campaign continues to be promoted.  The dedicated 'How Does Poo Move You?' Facebook Apps are featured on ReNew Life's & Brenda Watson's Facebook pages.  The applications feature the top five video submissions along with top 10 lists.

How Does Poo Move You?
"Interesting Facts About Poo"

A healthy bowel movement should slip out in one easy, effortless motion, sit on top of the water a few seconds, and then slowly sink.  No plop.

The color of healthy stool is golden brown.

A typical bowel movement should be around 16-18 inches long.

The same pleasure center in your brain that is aroused during intercourse or even eating chocolate is the same pleasure center that's activated when having a healthy bowel movement.

Consuming up to 35 grams of fiber a day will help maintain your regularity.

Healthy elimination should occur 2-3 times daily.

A healthy bowel movement shouldn't require any straining.

Healthy elimination usually creates very little noise.

Position is important for a healthy bowel movement.  Propping your feet up on a small stool helps create a position that makes elimination effortless.

The actual content of your stool should be about 75% water and 25% waste (fiber) and dead bacteria.

Win It!

One person will win a $50 ReNew Life gift certificate.

My stepdaughter has IBS, which means we always have to know where the nearest bathroom is when we're out. It can come out of nowhere, but it's urgent. As you can imagine, when it strikes, it really moves the whole family!
