Occasional upsets can also be caused by changes in your schedule, diet, travel, or other factors.

What should I look for in a probiotic?

According to a new set of guidelines called "The P's and Q's of Probiotics," unveiled by the International Scientific Association for Probiotics and Prebiotics (ISAPP), there are five criteria that consumers should consider when selecting a probiotic: probiotic strain, clinical proof, packaging, quality, and quantity.

See how Align meets these criteria and is a good option for people wanting to build and maintain a natural defense against occasional digestive upsets.*

  • Probiotic Strain: Bifidobacterium infantis 35624 (Bifantis) is the patented probiotic ingredient in Align that can help build and maintain the body's natural defenses.
  • Proof: Bifantis has been the subject of several clinical studies a nd been featured in peer-reviewed journals. Please see bifantis.com for full details.
  • Packaging: Align contains 1 x 109 (1 billion) CFUs of live bacteria when manufactured, and provides an effective level until the "best by" date on the package. Align capsules come in specially designed blister packs that ensure bacteria remain alive and effective until the date on the box.

What should I look for in a probiotic?
Is Align like yogurt? How different is it from probiotic yogurts? While some yogurts contain bacteria to confer benefits consistent with those of a probiotic supplement, yogurt in the United States is not required to contain any live cultures, and results from tests of yogurt products show a wide range in the levels of live bacteria. The delivery of probiotics in either yogurt or fermented milk is limited by the need for cold storage and an associated shorter shelf life. Additionally, many people with occasional digestive upsets may have trouble consuming sufficiently large quantities of these products. Align is different because only Align contains Bifantis, a patented probiotic strain, available in a convenient capsule form. Is Align like yogurt? How different is it from probiotic yogurts?
