In my second week of using Align for my IBS, there is not much to tell. I had 3 days of bloating and gas that subsided. Also, in those three days, I was as uncomfortable as six or eight months ago, before I started using any probiotic. During the first week I had more trouble with constipation than with my old NSI probiotic; IBS-C is my “normal” form of IBS, although I alternate with IBS-D when I have to use Amoxicillin for dental work.
After three days, my tummy has calmed down. I’ve had a couple of mild episodes of acid reflux, but had been having worse episodes before starting Align.
Remember, though, that I’m still not eating any IBS triggers except a tiny amount of coffee–a consistent amount, over the last six months. Also, I’m getting 45 grams/day of fiber, at least 20 grams of that is entirely soluble fiber and the rest is mixed, including some more soluble fiber.
