In a nutshell: constipation sucks. Aside from being unbearably painful, it’s also leaves you feeling queasy, gassy, and uncomfortable for most of the day. There are a handful of medication available to treat constipation, but if you’re not big on ingesting chemicals to alleviate the symptoms, then here’s an alternative: a revolutionary vibrating capsule by developed by Vibrant which is currently being tested by a team of researchers headed by Yishai Ron.
The vitamin-sized pill is programmed to start vibrating six to eight hours after it’s swallowed. Instead of dissolving, it vibrates as it moves down your system. Eventually, it will pass the lower intestine, where it will theoretically induce movement to push waste down and prevent constipation from rearing its ugly head. A study done on 26 patients who had bowel movements only twice a week tried the pill and noticed an improvement with their pooping habits thereafter.
