The Probiotics Guide to Supporting and Balancing Gut Health

IIf you’ve ever struggled to break out of the familiar cycle of post-meal discomfort, unwanted gas, and the need to switch (again) to stretchy pants, your gut might be trying to tell you something, literally and metaphorically.

The message? It might be time to add a probiotic supplement to your routine, says Shana Minei Spence, RDN. “If you’re someone with digestive health issues, dealing with a lot of stress, experiencing new environments and foods, or just wanting to give your body the tools it needs for balanced digestive and overall health, then a probiotic supplement is a good choice to consider,” says Spence.

Somewhere in that list of reasons, you probably thought: It’s so me. But if you’re confused or skeptical about adding yet another supplement to your routine, listen to Spence. “We don’t always need all the supplements that are marketed to us,” she says. “However, if you are experience intestinal issues, then it’s a good idea to look into…a probiotic that has been designed to help treat your specific symptoms.”

The next step, of course, is finding the right probiotic. Align is based on 20 years of research and has been the number one probiotic recommended by gastroenterologists for 14 years.‡ To be more specific: Align Digestive Support 24/7contains the unique strain Bifidobacterium 35624™ , which has been shown to help soothe digestive symptoms such as occasional bloating, gas, and abdominal discomfort.*

So what should you do to successfully add probiotics to your routine and what should you absolutely do not To do? We asked Spence to spill all the details in this probiotics guide.
