Good Morning Everyone! How are your stomachs? I ask that because mine has always been bad. Let’s just jump right in, shall we? I have had lots of issues with my stomach. I hold my stress there for sure and have suffered my whole life because of it. Gut health is so important, and I am trying to get mine in check. One important thing I have added to my morning routine is a probiotic from Align to help promote and support my digestive system*.
Probiotics are essential for many vital boday functions
What is Align? Align is a gluten-free probiotic that is used to maintain your digestive balance*. Probiotics are living organisms of good bacteria that provide health benefits and are essential for many vital body functions, including healthy digestion. We can disrupt the normal balance of good bacteria with antibiotic use, diet, stress, and travel. Align partnered with some leading gastroenterologists, authorities in digestive health, to identify the best probiotic strain to help with those occasional digestive upsets we might have like gas and bloating* (guilty!).
Align uses the highest quality standards
So why choose Align? Well, for starters, it’s the number one Gastroenterologist recommended probiotic‡, manufactured with the highest quality standards. Great care and protection are taken in the manufacturing and packaging process to ensure that the product remains at an effective level until the best by date on the package.
Use Align every day to get the benefits
I know what you are thinking, why not just eat yogurt, right? Eating yogurt is great, but 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. With Align, you can be sure that you are getting healthy probiotic bacteria. The best way to use Align is to use it every day to get the benefits. It can take up to a month to soothe those symptoms of occasional gas and bloating (note: it is normal to have gas and bloating the first few days of using the product. This may be temporary while your system adjusting to Align).
I know that my system gets whack when I travel, and I am so tired of how I feel when I do. I have decided (took long enough) to make a serious effort to take a probiotic every single day so that when I do travel, I will (hopefully) not feel so bad. Do you all take a probiotic every day? What do you notice it does for you? Let’s make an effort together to take them for our gut health, want to?
Thank you, Align, for sponsoring this post and helping my stomach!
