This is due to the fact that regular use might lead to:
A 'lazy bowel' occurs when the muscle relaxes too much, causing bowel evacuation to become less frequent. Long-term constipation may result as a result of this.
In the body, there is an imbalance of fluids and salts. This can have an impact on gut muscle function as well as blood salt levels.
Dehydration is a problem that is exacerbated if you are taking certain drugs, such as water tablets.
