Do You Visit the Toilet After every Meal?!

Do You Visit the Toilet  After every Meal?!

It may sound uncommon, but yes, many individuals experience this problem. Many a times it can be embarrassing for some that, as soon as they eat, their stomach starts growling and they need to head towards the toilet. To avoid such a situation, many avoid eating at any important appointments, meetings or when they are at a social gathering. While some may misinterpret that they might be suffering from a digestive disorder like Irritable bowel syndrome, here is what you should know. Why does this happen? Is it normal or abnormal?? Read on to understand what happens....

As soon as you eat something, motility increases in your digestive tract. Food passes through the stomach and enters the small intestine. The entry of food into the small intestine sends signals through it to move the stool more rapidly down the intestine. And, if you have just eaten food some time back, then the activity of the intestines would increase. This activity is due to a normal reflex your body displays called the "gastro-colic reflex" in response to food in the intestines. After the digestion and absorption of food, the waste is eliminated.
