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.
Take care of your gut, and you’ll feel better for it. Trust me, I know. If you’ve read my blog for any length of time, you’ll know that I suffer from digestive issues, and they can be quite debilitating at times. So it’s incredibly important that I keep my gut as healthy as possible. If I don’t, I absolutely pay for it. Taking care of my gut includes watching out for trigger foods, making sure I get plenty of rest, water and exercise to keep my body in good working order, and taking a good probiotic – Align. Align helps you take care of your gut to keep you feeling your best.
That’s really important to know this time of year. April is IBS Awareness Month, and if anything needs its own awareness month, it’s IBS. IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) is a painful, often debilitating disease that thousands of people across the world suffer from. The pain, cramping, gas, and bloating can floor a person and drastically affect their quality of life.
Did you know that an estimated five million Canadians suffer from IBS? That’s 1 in 7. I have found that changes to my diet, and physical activity has helped manage my symptoms. Stress management and self-care are important as well, not just to people with IBS, but for everyone. Take care of yourself; pay more attention to your diet, stress relief and relaxation. If you still find that you are bloated, gassy and experiencing discomfort, then support from a probiotic can help.
This year, I made MOVEMENT my philosophy or word of the year. It’s my goal all year to move more and be proactive in all things personal and professional. That has meant skiing more, hitting the gym 4 to 5 times a week, traveling as often as possible and hydrating all the time. I NEED all the activity I can get because my energy level suffers when I am not MOVING and exercising.
However, I can’t do my best at any of the activities I love if I feel gassy, bloated and uncomfortable. Have you ever tried to put on ski boots after a meal when you are bloated? It’s not pretty. Align Probiotic Chewables help me meet my goals for myself every day.
Take Care of Your Gut with the #1 Doctor Recommended Probiotic Supplement*
Changes in diet, routine, and traveling can all cause stress on an already fragile gut and disrupt intestinal flora. Align is a daily probiotic supplement that gives your gut the essential live bacteria needed to help improve overall health and help relieve and manage the symptoms of IBS. When taken every day, Align capsules offer relief of IBS symptoms like gas, bloating, and abdominal discomfort, allowing IBS sufferers to enjoy life again. In fact, it’s the only supplement to contain Bifidobacterium longum subspecies longum 35624. It’s a pure-strain probiotic bacteria developed by gastroenterologists specifically to help relieve and manage IBS symptoms.
Take Care of Your Gut Starting Today
Align is the #1 Doctor recommended probiotic supplement brand*. The Align Chewables are my preference. Not only do they help me feel better, they also taste great! I’ve been taking Align every day for about three weeks. And even though my kids don’t have IBS they are both taking Align now too to help with their gastro issues.
Your gut health can be better. Let Align help. My younger daughter says she already feels a difference. As for me, I like having probiotic support overall. It just makes my system feel a bit more harmonious.
Your bad days can be significantly LESS bad. If you suffer from gut issues including IBS, I highly recommend Align to help you take care of your gut, starting today.
