It all started when I had a gastrointestinal virus for which I needed two weeks to recover from. The IBS came a couple of weeks later. I had bowel and stomach cramps and burning sensation every time I went to the bathroom. The stomach and bowel burning was the worst as it was so uncomfortable. It lasted for ten days then came back after three weeks. Went for stool exams, bowel barium xrays and blood work and all was very fine. Doctor told me it was IBS and it would cure with time and diet. IBS is somewhat like having an irritated, inflammed bowel that needs to heal by reducing acidity and sugar intakes. Here is the diet that helped me. When the burning sensations came with diarrhea, I boiled some white rice and drank the rice water with little rice. As for my meals, I filled up my stomach with slice of bread (only with well cooked Italian or french bread as others type like toast bread would make IBS worst) and a banana for breakfast, pasta(couscous, rice, thin rice noodles...) with olive oil and well cooked white meat for lunch, crackers for snacks (unsalted with no flavour wheat one), couscous with fillet of sole (light white fish). No spices and not fried only steamed. When stomach burns stop, start adding vegetables (steamed green beans, spinach, potatoes, sweat potatoes, zucchini or squash). Vegetables should not be eaten on empty stomach but at end of meals. Yogourt once a day as the only dairy intake. No acidity or sugar intake. Therefore fruits can be banana, kaki and lots of water but not on empty stomach. Never eat or drink cold stuff as it spasms the bowel. You must chew your food completely prior swallowing and don't eat any fatty or hard to digest food. Always remove peel and skin. No diary, no fats, no sweets, no sauces, no chocolate... No aspartame and no sorbitol (found in cough syrup and gums). Align give little bloating and stiff points in stomach on week 1. No worry. IBS symptoms get better on week 2 but much better by end of week 3 and 4. The trick is to take Align daily while being cautious on your diet. Once you start feeling better you should not start eating normally again because your IBS symptoms might come back only a couple or a few days later. You should integrate slowly ur normal diet by starting to integrate more good foods not acid nor sweet. Align truly works with this diet. I have tried the diet with BIO-K probiotic only and wasn't effective because the probiotic in it is mostly effective after antibiotic intake. I can now confirm that Align is truly the good probiotic for IBS. I hope my experience will help others and that they have the same results I did. Mark.

This is a very good probiotic formulation. If you need help to digest certain foods such as caffeine, chocolate, dairy, or other, you may find this helpful.

However, a couple of problems:
1.) The "once daily" dose called out on the label is insufficient. In order to be effective, one tablet must be taken before each meal that includes a problem food.

2.) Value -Another product called Digestive Advantage works slightly better than this, for about 1/3 the price

Jury's still out

Comments about Align Digestive Care Probiotic Supplement, Capsules, 28 ea:

My biggest problem is flatulence. Horribly unpleasant, stinky, foul gas. I've self-diagnosed myself as lactose intolerant, but the items that cause gas in me include the following: FOOD, ALL FOOD!

I was unaware that Align had lactose in it when I started using it, but yogurt doesn't bother me so I'm not too concerned with the lactose in Align. I began taking it 5 days ago. Like many of the previous negative reviews, I have experienced bloating. However, the bloating has prevented me from partaking in my usual pre-bedtime routine that has a huge contribution to my foul farts.

I typically have two glasses of wine at night with a large green salad that consists of romaine, spinach, cucumbers, tomatoes, avocado and a protein (like quinoa, egg, turkey or ham). After the second glass of wine, I'm usually craving a third, and since my dinner is so light, I also start munching. A few pieces of dark chocolate, 5 or 6 ritz crackers, a handful of cashews, a mini reeses peanut butter cup, etc., and then sometimes a third glass of wine if I really give-in to temptation.

What this bloating has done for me is made me not want anything else after the salad and 2 glasses of wine. I still consider my indulgences because it's such a habit at this point, but I feel SO full that I honestly can't put anything else in my body.

The result over the past 5 days is that my gas has reduced because I haven't put the things in my body that cause it. I imagine that over time, also, the bloating will reduce simply because when you are eating and drinking less, you are swallowing less air and putting fewer toxins in your body for your digestive tract to reject.

Is this what I had intended Align to do for me? No. I was actually hoping that it would be some miracle pill that would allow me to consume dairy again. But after careful consideration, is that really what I want? To sit with a tray full of international cheeses to be followed by a huge bucket of ice cream? Maybe my lactose intolerance has kept me skinny well into my thirties, and I shouldn't try to fight it.

I plan to finish this package of Align. I haven't decided if I will continue to use it. I will have to see how my body continues to react. One thing that I will suggest, though, whether you choose to use Align or not, is drink water. Drink a big glass in the morning before your coffee and drink a big glass before you go to bed. Keep a glass next to your bed for when you wake up during the night, and keep a water bottle with you throughout the day. Besides all of the health benefits water has, every time you are drinking water, you are not consuming something else.

      If you have to use a strong prescription anti-biotic you have to take this type of product to replace the NATURAL bacteria destroyed by the prescr. medicines. This will get you back to a NORMAL digestive system.

        I had to take large doses of prescribed anti-biotics, this past winter, to knock out a serious pneumonia. A friend of mine ( a physcians asst. ) told me that my good bateria was probably wiped out in my intestines. He suggested that I buy a good

        PRO-biotic which will help replace the lost, good bacteria. It came up, on Drugstore.com, that Align was the best seller. I know have a fine - tuned digestive system, Thanks to drugstore.com and ALIGN brand, pro-biotics.

            I've been on align now for a full 3 weeks. I've given it a decent chance. While I may be remotely more regular, every day for the past 3 weeks I've been miserable. The bloating, pain and gas are horrendous, and the website said it sould only last a week or so. If it worked better, I might hang on and try another month's worth, but unless that happens in the next few days, I'm done with this product. It's VERY expensive, to be making me so miserable. You'd think they might at least add an anti-gas ingredient since this side effect is felt by enough people to have a section of the website dedicated to it.

                          Align Digestive Care Probiotic Supplement, Capsules

                           – Healthy digestion is important for everyday life. Unfortunately, sometimes digestion can get out of balance. When that happens, you might find yourself suffering from minor stomach discomfort.

                          Align Digestive Care Probiotic Supplement, Capsules are a dietary supplement formulated to help restore balance and promote healthy digestion. When you take Align Digestive Care Probiotic Supplement, Capsules, you send billions of potentially beneficial probiotic bacteria into your body. Align contains a bacterial strain called Bifantis you won't find in other probiotic products. That's because it's purified and patented.

                          Why Digestive Balance is Important



                          Many factors can cause stomach upset. Be sure to talk to your doctor about any symptoms you may be experiencing and ask if probiotic supplements might be beneficial for you. Align Digestive Care Probiotic Supplements help deliver friendly bacteria in a convenient form. One capsule contains at least one billion active Bifantis bacteria. One capsule a day is generally considered an appropriate dose for most people, although follow the recommendation of your doctor. Depending on your history, your doctor may recommend taking up to two a day.

                          A Trusted Brand



                          Why Align? In a survey of 600 gastroenterologists, specialists that treat digestive problems, Align was one of the most recommended brands of probiotics. Unlike prescription medications gastroenterologists and other doctors prescribe for digestive issues, Align Digestive Care is a dietary supplement and is free of medications. Therefore, it has a low risk of causing side effects or interacting with other supplements or prescriptions you might be taking. Many doctors recommend probiotics to patients with digestive issues, but talk to your health care provider before considering supplements as they may not be appropriate for everyone.
