How to take Align Probiotic
Take one capsule of Align Probiotic 24/7 Digestive Support* daily. They can be taken with or without food, and with or without water. The key is simply to take a capsule once a day, every day. Making a difference in your gut microbiome takes time, so taking your probiotic daily ensures you’re getting those good bacteria to your gut each day.
Align Probiotic Dosage
Align Probiotic 24/7 Digestive Support*§ has the probiotic strain Bifidobacterium 35624. This strain has more than twenty years of research and was developed by gastroenterologists.
Align Probiotic 24/7 Digestive Support*§ contains 1 x 109 (one billion) live bacteria when manufactured. The capsules contain an effective level of bacteria of at least 1 x 107 CFU until the “best by” date. CFUs, or colony forming units, is the measurement used for probiotic supplement dosing. This is important because in order to get the benefits you want from Align, you need to take the amount of bacteria shown to provide those benefits. When you take Align daily, you’re getting an effective level of CFUs and live cultures into your gut. Align Probiotics are also gluten free, soy-free, vegetarian.
When is it best to take Align Probiotic?
There is not a specific time when it’s best to take Align Probiotic. The important thing is simply that you take one capsule a day, every day. We recommend taking it at the same time every day, so that it becomes a part of your daily routine.
Should I take Align in the morning or at night?
It does not matter whether you take your Align Probiotic in the morning or at night. Simply take it at a time that fits best with your self-care routine.
Do I need to refrigerate Align?
No, Align Probiotics do not require refrigeration. Align Probiotic 24/7 Digestive Support*§ capsules do not require refrigeration because the bacteria have been freeze dried. The capsules have a 24-month shelf life, and have been formulated and tested to confirm they’ll remain effective during that time—no refrigeration required.
We do recommend keeping the capsules in their blister pack until you are ready to take them. The blister packs protect the capsules from the environment around them. And, after all, you do want those probiotics to be alive when they reach your gut so they can work to give you the health benefits you want.

When to Expect the Benefits of Align Probiotic
Many Align users start to notice its benefits after the first 2-4 weeks.
There are already billions of bacteria living with your gut. That’s why it takes time and consistent, daily use to notice Align working. The probiotics need time to build up in your gut and interact with the bacteria already living there.
Some Align users don’t notice a tangible difference—but that doesn’t mean Align isn’t “working.” By taking Align Probiotics, you’re contributing to your long-term wellbeing by helping support your gut health.*
