Probiotic Review Notes
The following trials were conducted by an IBS sufferer who had, developed their symptoms as a result of continued Antibiotic use. The net result was a very poor digestive system, which required a major overhaul.
As with all products that we trial, the probiotics were used as per the manufacturers instructions. With all trials the period relates to the time taken to use one of the products being tested.
We always state, and will state again that this is the experience of one sufferers, any IBS trial to be accurate should be conducted across the wide range of IBS symptoms, not just the experience of one sufferer.
With that said, we feel that any review we give, will be based upon the knowledge we have gathered regarding the relative validity of any product for IBS sufferers at large.
We would never dismiss a product based upon the experience of one sufferer, and will always give a product a fair assessment.

This is definitely one of the better probiotics available. The use of the Bifidobacterium infantis 35624 bacteria strain is the key USP of this product and it certainly does seem to work. As with any IBS product it will not work for everyone, however with probiotics in general their success is very much dependent upon both the quality and quantity if the bacterial strains within.
There is an excellent review by a nutritionist, a portion of which we have utilised below, and we would highly recommend that you read that first if you are considering buying this product.
‘Align was formulated with the Bifidobacterium infantis 35624 bacteria strain. In a 2009 review of scientific studies on IBS probiotic treatment, Bifidobacterium infantis 35624 showed significant improvement in the composite score for abdominal pain/discomfort, bloating/distention, and/or bowel movement difficulty. Bifidobacterium infantis 35624 has been shown to prevent invasion of the gut lining by one of the bacteria thought to be responsible for inflammatory bowel conditions such as IBS and reduced inflammation in the gut.’ Taken from a customer review on Amazon.com
