Why I choose to take a probiotic supplement

Around a year ago I made the decision to take a daily probiotic supplement in order to maintain digestive balance. I´m a busy working mom and I know that stress and diet can disrupt your natural balance of good bacteria in the gut. Enter probiotics, which are the good bacteria that provide a health benefit and are essential for many vital body functions, including healthy digestion. A friend asked why I didn´t simply eat a probiotic yogurt instead. Well, because in the US, yogurt is not required to contain any live cultures, and tests have shown that some yogurt products have a wide range of levels of live bacteria. Additionally, I, along with many other people, have trouble consuming large enough quantities of yogurt!

Why I choose to take a probiotic supplement

So, how to choose the right probiotic supplement? Since probiotics are living organisms, it´s truly important to choose a reputable manufacturer who adheres to the highest quality standards and processes. I´ve been successfully using Align regularly to stave off occasional abdominal discomfort, gas, or bloating*. I´m compliant when it comes to taking a supplement that does its job. When you take Align, know that it´s important to try it for at least a month, once a day, every day, to reap the benefits.

These are the main reasons I chose Align when I decided I would take a probiotic daily:

  • Because Align partnered with leading gastroenterologists, authorities in digestive health, to identify the best probiotic strain to help with occasional digestive upsets*
  • It fortifies your digestive system with a unique, healthy bacteria 24/7*§.
  • Align helps promote & support a healthy digestive system*
  • It helps maintain your digestive balance*
  • It is a gluten-free probiotic
  • It is the #1 Gastroenterologist recommended probiotic
  • Align has a patented probiotic strain Bifidobacterium 35264™ that can’t be found in other probiotics, including store brands

I invite you to try Align for a month and share your experience if you like. Remember to take one capsule a day, every day. Store the capsules at room temperature and keep them in their original blister packaging until you take them.
