How We Improve Gut Health with Align

I created this post as a paid ambassador for Align® Probiotic. All opinions and advice are my own. I only work with companies I genuinely love and have used prior to being contacted. 


A lot of people look forward to spring. I have a bit of a different take. For some reason every single Spring I notice dramatic changes in my gut health. It’s not pure science or anything but it is my experience over more than a decade. The weather gets a bit warmer, slowly, and my gut goes haywire.



So how do I cope with that? This year I have been using Align probiotic. In fact, I talked about that a few weeks ago here and how we as a family, were embracing Align probiotic daily and seeing some early results. Basically, if it helps improve gut health for me and my daughters, Align probiotic is welcome around here.


As I’ve written in several different blog posts, I have bloating and stomach pain. They can be painful, and even worse, they sometimes stop me from doing the things I love. I do whatever I can to ensure that I keep my problems in check. I avoid trigger foods, drink lots of water, exercise regularly, and I take Align probiotic.


Because of my long-term gastro issues, my daughters are acutely aware of how important it is to maintain Gastrointestinal health, and that’s why they’ve started taking Align, as well. While they don’t have my issues, they do know that the better your gut fora is the better you feel overall.


Improve Gut Health for Better Overall Health

You might remember I wrote a post a little while back about how Align can help keep your gut healthy and relieve some  painful issues such as bloating and stomach pain.It helps keep things in your gut running smoothly even when you can’t avoid all common triggers like travel, stress, and sometimes, diet change. In fact, it’s the #1 doctor and gastroenterologist recommended probiotic supplement. *

My Daughters and I Have Seen a Difference

My daughters, age 16 and 14, and I have been using Align probiotic supplements daily for the past two months, and feel good about that.

Align is a great tool for people with gastro issues, because it works. Over the past couple of months, I’ve seen improvement myself and my daughters. It’s important for them to take a probiotic to maintain good gut health. Happily, they like the taste of Align probiotic chewables. One takes Junior and the other takes Adult with me. 



Life is Better When You Don’t Have to Think About Your Stomach Ruining Plans

It’s a wonderful feeling to find something that really works to improve gut health, especially when you have bloating and stomach issues like I do. I’ve spent most of my life fighting these issues, and it has been a painful struggle. The inability to get out and do what you love because your gut won’t settle down is almost worse than the pain associated with it. I’m grateful we’ve found Align to help improve gut health for my family.


If you want to improve your gut health, I highly recommend Align. Over the past couple of months, my daughters and I have seen a marked improvement in the way we feel, and if you have gut health issues, there’s no better feeling than that.

    I, too, feel better when I take probiotic supplements. It really does help me feel so much better. I’ll have to check out Align. I really like that they are chewable.

    Gut health seems to be the big thing now. Must be all the unhealthy preservative in store bought food. Sounds like a wonderful way to heal the gut

    Great probiotics. These are so essential to good overall health. I heard you should rotate the strains you take as well.

    I have IBS and my daughter has Crohns and between the two of us we have noticed that our symptoms are worse in the spring. I wish I knew why, and I would prevent it!

    I have actually heard of Align and always hear positive recommendations on it! This is something my brother should consider as he often gets stomach issues – I’ll have to tell him about it!
