I am not a Doctor. I don’t make professional recommendations on major lifestyle changes, eating habits or exercise; it’s just not my shtick. What I do know, that I must share my Husbands experience with a product that has quite simply changed his life.
For the past twenty plus years? Maybe even longer? My Hubby has suffered from the most sensitive of stomachs. He has not been officially diagnosed with irritable bowel or lactose intolerance, but every one close to him knows that things like cheese, certain oils, fountain pops, strong coffee or event stress can and do cause the most intense dramatic and sudden intestinal distress. The biggest problem with these “tummy troubles”? He never knew exactly when he was going to get hit. In the middle of a big meeting, stuck in traffic, out in the middle of a lake on a boat, the sudden and urgent need for a bathroom could pop up without any kind of warning. Uncomfortable, fear inducing, embarrassing and frustrating are all words that could easily be used to describe some “moments” dear Hubby has had to endure courtesy of accidently ingesting something his body just couldn’t handle.
Hubby has tried every diet under the sun, every product on the market. Nothing has helped his particular stomach. Until now.
He tried Align™.
What is Align™?
Align is a daily probiotic supplement that provides live bacteria to benefit health, even relieving and managing symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Taking Align once a day, every day provides probiotic bacteria that contribute to a natural healthy intestinal flora.
What are probiotics?
Probiotics are considered to be live microorganisms which, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit. Align provides probiotic bacteria that contribute to a natural healthy intestinal flora.
What makes Align Digestive Care special?
Only Align contains Bifidobacterium longum subsp. infantis 35624, a pure-strain probiotic bacteria developed by Gastroenterologists, which relieves and manages IBS symptoms. When taken daily, Align provides live bacteria to benefit health.
Within three days of taking this over the counter probiotic Hubby noticed a difference.
At about the one week mark, his stomach was a little “off”, but he persisted.
At a week and a half he wondered if he had found a miracle product.
Two weeks in dear Hubby was testing Align, not believing his luck. He started indulging in his trigger foods. Cheese, glasses of milk, salads with oils even fountain pops. He felt great! No stomach issues, no cramps, most of all, no fear.
Now almost two months in, Hubby declares Align to be the drug that changed his life. This probiotic, taken every morning, has given him the freedom to eat some of those tricky foods that have been on his “do not touch” list for years, and so much more! He no longer lives in fear of getting caught in the embarrassing and uncomfortable position of having to find a bathroom, fast. Align™ has truly and honestly changed his life.
Does my Husband’s story sound a little too familiar? Do you or someone you love suffer in the same kind of uncomfortable silence? Do you stand by feeling helpless, knowing you can’t make their life any easier but wish you could? This is the only reason I chose to write this post. I hope this post can help someone else suffering in silence.
