"Summer activities tend to trigger changes that can disrupt the natural balance of good bacteria in your gut"

CINCINNATI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Whether it’s a June wedding, a Fourth of July backyard BBQ or a cross-country family road trip, the summertime is often filled with a marathon of both unforgettable memories and occasional digestive distress.

This summer, Align – the #1 Doctor1 and Gastroenterologist2 recommended probiotic supplement – is partnering with registered dietitian Ashley Koff to educate people who occasionally experience digestive imbalance on how to avoid triggers and Live 24/73 when summer adventures disrupt your healthy daily routine.*

“Summer activities tend to trigger changes that can disrupt the natural balance of good bacteria in your gut,” noted Ashley Koff, RD. “Only Align contains the patented probiotic strain Bifantis™, which supplements your digestive system with good bacteria.* I consider Align the gold standard when it comes to supporting digestive balance.”

Following are Ashley’s top five tips to help you maintain digestive balance this summer.

  • Try a Probiotic: Common issues such as travel and change in diet can disrupt your natural balance of good bacteria. With continued daily use, Align can help fortify your digestive system with healthy bacteria to help maintain your digestive system’s natural balance during the busy summer months.*
    • Align is gluten-free and doesn’t contain added sugars. In addition, it doesn’t need to be refrigerated, making it the perfect probiotic supplement to pack for all your travels this summer.
  • Keep Hydrated: Drink plenty of water, water-based beverages and foods, avoid excess salt and consume potassium-rich foods and beverages, such as avocado and coconut water.
  • Avoid Junk Food: Pack healthy, non-perishable food items so you’re prepared with nutritious snacks throughout the day.
  • Pack Better “Pit Stops”: Your body functions better when it gets nutrition at regular intervals throughout the day. Ward off summer temptations that can lead to poor pit stops by packing nutrient dense foods.
  • Food Safety: The warm summer sun can be great for outdoor activities, but make sure to practice food safety. Keep hot foods at 140 degrees or warmer, and cold foods at 40 degrees or colder. Pitch any perishable food kept at room temperature for more than two hours and wash produce and your hands with warm soapy water before eating.

Additional digestive wellness tips and resources are also available on the Align YouTube page, including a video series with Ashley Koff, RD featuring summer travel tips and other key topics.
