4 Reasons Why I Have Taken Align for the Past 5 Years

Like most people, I’ve had occasional stomach issues throughout my life. During my teenage years my mom used to call it my “nervous stomach” when I would live in the bathroom before a date picked me up for dinner.

As I got older, it’s possible that I caused many a mother in the grocery store to check her child’s diaper as I peppered the area during a gassy walk by.

I really didn’t think much about the occasional bloating and gas until we attended a wedding a few years ago and my dress stopped fitting during the ceremony.

I’m not even kidding.

It fit perfectly when we walked into the church. By the time the wedding was over, my zipper had popped because I was so bloated.

Here we are just before the reception. The back of my dress is safety pinned shut.

I mentioned it to my doctor, and she suggested I make a few lifestyle changes.

I started exercising more. That helped a little.

I made some changes to my diet. That helped too.

But I still had occasional bloating and gas.

My doctor suggested that I start using Align, a daily probiotic supplement that helps fortify your digestive system with a unique, healthy bacteria 24/7*§.

§Fortifies your digestive system with healthy bacteria 24/7 with continued daily use.

She let me know that I might feel MORE bloating for the first 1 to 4 days that I used it, but to stick with it for a month and see how I felt.

Probiotics are good bacteria that provide a health benefit and are essential for many vital body functions, including healthy digestion. Common issues (like diet and stress) can disrupt the natural balance of good bacteria, which is why products like Align can help maintain your digestive system’s natural balance*.

I honestly didn’t see a huge difference at first. But over the course of 30 days, I slowly started to notice that I wasn’t getting bloated halfway through the day.

And I couldn’t remember the last time I had sought out a baby in public so that I could do a walk by farting.

It was the missing piece of my digestive puzzle that had finally clicked into place.

Align partnered with leading gastroenterologists, authorities in digestive health to identify the best probiotic strain to help with occasional digestive upsets*. They have a patented probiotic strain called Bifidobacterium 35264™ that can’t be found in other probiotics, including store brands.

How cool is that?

4 REASONS WHY I HAVE TAKEN ALIGN FOR THE PAST 5 YEARS

Warning: you are about to hear a lot more about my bathroom habits than you probably thought you wanted to know. You’re going to be okay. As I tell my kids, “Everybody poops!”

1. I rarely feel bloated anymore.

Other than here and there around that time of the month, I’m rarely bloated these days. Which means my clothes fit.

No mid-day (or mid-wedding) surprises for me!

2. I’m regular…

Align helps maintain my digestive balance*. I go every day, a little bit like clockwork. No rushing to a random public restroom. No living in the bathroom while I’m waiting to be picked up on a date.

That was a test to see if you’re paying attention. I’m married. I’m no longer waiting for dates to pick me up. But if I were, I like to think that I wouldn’t be living in the bathroom.

3. I’m happy.

Listen. I don’t know if this can be attributed to Align or not, but I’m pretty darn happy.  I’ve read that there is a link between gut health and mental health, and I know that Align is helping keep my gut healthy*

4. Align isn’t fussy.

I love that I don’t have to keep Align refrigerated (like some probiotics). It’s hard to remember to take my daily vitamins, but it would be pretty much impossible if I had to keep some of them in the fridge.

I also love that I can pick up Align in just about any grocery store instead of having to make a separate trip to a specialty store. Nobody has time for that!
