While late night shopping with my sister, I came across this Align display. (Woohoo! Gotta love that Duane Reade has 24 hour locations throughout NYC.)
I have heard that Align makes you feel like you are having a regular day. Maybe give you a little pep in your step? Or possibly make that feeling of glum go away? (Forgive me, while I beat around the bush here. ) There are times when you can get that bloated feeling and you are not feeling your regular self. This is why I wanted to check out Align® probiotic.
Right now, many of the NYC Duane Reade locations have an Align display with a special package of Align that also includes a free package of Metamucil with your purchase. To check out my my recent trip to Duane Reade, please visit my Google + story.
According to the Align website, Common issues such as diet, changes in schedule, travel, and stress can disrupt your natural balance of good bacteria. Probiotics are increasingly being used and evaluated to help maintain digestive balance. With these conditions, it is easy to see how anyone could disrupt the balance in their body. Another reason why I wanted to try Align was because about a year ago, I went to a gastroenterologist complaining of a pain that wasn’t going away. Luckily, my colonoscopy showed that everything was ok and he prescribed a more fiber enriched diet to help maintain regularity.
I haven’t tried probiotics before. I tend to have yogurt but I know that there are many different types of active cultures that are body needs. I did not know that Align could naturally help lower cholesterol too. An added perk might I add!
After my 14 day trial using Align, I am happy to report that today is a regular day! Maintaining balance in your body is an awesome thing and when you are happy, those around you feel happy too. The first couple of days were on the more bloated side, but as I continued the full 14 days, I do feel less bloated and not as sluggish. When I finish my pack of Align, I think that I will have to purchase another.
My Align box came with money saving coupons for Proctor & Gamble products that I use almost every day.
To keep adding on the savings, I always use my Balance Rewards card at Duane Reade.

I’ve taken probiotics before, and it makes the world of difference!
I like Align. It works really good
Very interesting! I’ve never taken probiotics but I may have to check these out.

I’m sure it works great because probiotics in general do their thing. I have to be careful with frequency though.
I have taken probiotics on and off and they definitely have helped.

My son is on a probiotic and I’ve been thinking that it’s time to start on one too. Thanks for the info.
Probiotics are a great way to keep your gut healthy which in turn keeps your immune system strong!!
Your experience with probiotics sounds very much like my own – after a couple days of adjustment, I was having many regular and good days! I’m glad to hear Align worked so well for you. I’ve not tried that brand before but I’ve heard many good things about it as well. I’m looking forward to seeing the difference the B.infantis makes! Thanks so much for sharing your story 🙂

My kids pediatrician suggested I give this to her if she has diarrhea, it worked well!
