(BPT) - For women who want to embark on the journey to improve their overall health, it can be confusing to know where to start. From finding the right supplements that suit your body's specific needs, to eating the right food, the learning process can feel far from easy. But a simple habit that can be added into any routine to prioritize your health and wellness exists: Taking a probiotic each day.
A woman's microbiome includes trillions of good and bad bacteria that play an important role in your health, including gut and vaginal health. When this balance of good and bad bacteria is off, you may feel symptoms of occasional bloating, gas and abdominal discomfort. But taking Align Women's Dual Action, a daily probiotic capsule, helps support gut health and vaginal health.*
In addition to soothing digestive upsets*, here are three reasons why taking Align Women’s Dual Action daily should be a new healthy habit you add into your routine.
1. You do not get enough probiotics from the foods you eat
Many people believe that they get enough probiotics from foods they're eating, but not all fermented food contains probiotics. And even if they do, you may need to eat a LOT to get the amount of probiotics needed to provide health benefits. Regardless of the fermented foods you choose to eat, adding a daily probiotic, such as Align Women’s Dual Action, into your routine can provide your body with the helpful bacteria you need to support your gut and vaginal health.*
2. Some probiotics can support balance in both gut and feminine health
Taking a supplement like Align Women's Dual Action Probiotic can help support gut and feminine health.* It helps soothe occasional digestive upsets like bloating, gas and abdominal discomfort* by adding a unique strain of good bacteria to your gut. Plus, it contains women's probiotics and botanical chaste tree to help promote vaginal and monthly mood balance.*
Align Women’s Dual Action contains Align’s flagship strain, Bifidobacterium 35624™, which does not require refrigeration, making it perfect for on-the-go use. One capsule daily is all you need to help support gut health.* Align Women’s Dual Action also includes two additional probiotic strains shown to help promote vaginal health.*
Taking care of your health begins with small steps. Align Probiotic has launched the #HealthyGutTeamUp, to encourage users to add Align Women's Dual Action Probiotic and another healthy habit like walking, meditating, journaling, or any other habit to prioritize their overall health.

3. Providing your gut and feminine health with the right probiotic takes time
Like any healthy habit, seeing and feeling changes take time. In this case, your gut needs time to adjust to the new and good bacteria Align’s Women’s Dual Action Probiotic is providing so it’s important to take it daily for at least a month to see how good a healthy gut can feel.*
There are many reasons why your results may vary when taking probiotics, but a significant factor is choosing a probiotic with a well-studied strain. Pick a doctor-recommended brand and stick with it for at least a month before deciding if it's right for you. For example, Align's probiotic strain has been studied for over 20 years and is the #1 recommended probiotic brand by doctors and gastroenterologists.‡
