Ok, now I’m a believer.
When I first heard about daily probiotics I thought it was some kind of vitamin.
‘Sure, I’ll try it!’ I thought. I’m all for getting in vitamins, all the A D and Cs
But when I investigated the package I quickly realized these were not vitamins.
Probiotic are live bacteria and yeasts that are good for your health. Particularly your digestive system.
“Right!” I said to myself. “I’ve heard of this kind of stuff in some yogurts.”
I set it aside and told myself I’d come back to it later. This seemed like something for old people to use, or people with stomach issues. Not something I needed.
The New Year hit and one of my goals is to better myself physically, mentally, and emotionally. From drinking more water, exercising a few times a week, learning piano, meditating, finding better makeup for myself, taking better care of my skin—it’s been an interesting process.
A couple of weeks ago I tried a Dead Sea facemask for the first time (loved it). I’ve also started setting alarms throughout the day to remind myself to chug a glass of water. Most recently I decided to give probiotics a try.
Ya’ll, I kid you not, I have noticed a difference from the probiotics. I wouldn’t say this if I didn’t believe it. With all my recent travel I have been getting jet lagged and I have been getting airplane bloat (really, this is a thing I recently Googled when I swore I was looking pudgier after my flights). All of the stress of getting behind on work, keeping up with homeschool, and crazy ambitions like starting a daily vlog… They all catch up to me and effect my body.
At the risk of sounding like an infomercial… I started taking Align and I noticed a difference. I don’t feel bloated and I feel like my stomach insides are all functioning properly. I dig it.
