From oesophagus to intestines peristalsis helps in absorption of the nutrients in the body. The process ends in the large intestine where water gets absorbed and the waste gets excreted through bowel movement. However if you keep holding your bowel movement for long, the process gets reversed and results in hardening of waste materials in your body. This further leads to constipation.
