Why do you need a probiotic for summer travel? Summer means trips to the beach, relaxing in the yard with a glass of lemonade, and if you’re lucky a vacation.
It means that your routine will be different than normal, and that can cause stomach upsets. No one wants to have their vacation time or even their day off from work ruined by an upset stomach. This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/Align at Sam’s Club.
Probiotic for Summer Travel
Last weekend, my Mom and I spent the day on a farm about an hour to the north of us. We had breakfast, did a lot of walking and made friends with the cows. We had a fantastic time, and I’m glad that I didn’t have to worry about where the closest Porta Potty was.
Here are a few reasons you need a probiotic for summer travel:
- Changes to your routine. Summer brings changes to your routine which can mean changes to your bathroom routine.
- Eating different foods. In the summer, I eat a lot more fresh fruits and vegetables which can have an impact on my digestion.
- Stress from travel. Travel can be very stressful, and stress can change your digestive system.
- Improve your immune system. During the summer you’ll be exposed to new people and new places. Strengthening your immune system can help you be healthier.
I’ve been taking Align probiotics daily for about two weeks. If you missed my first post, you could learn more about why you need a probiotic for digestive balance. I started using a probiotic from Align because I had heard that I might not be getting enough probiotics in my yogurt alone. Align is a daily probiotic with a unique healthy bacteria that offers 24/7 digestive support*† to help you maintain digestive balance. It’s a lot easier to take a probiotic while you’re traveling than to find a good quality yogurt with live active cultures.
Now that I’ve started taking Align, I’m less concerned about how close the bathroom is just in case. Normally, the first thing I do when I travel is keep my eyes open for the restrooms. Stomach issues are not any fun at all, and traveling always disrupts my digestive system. With Align, it’s much less of a problem, and that’s going to make the two trips I have coming up this summer much less stressful for me.
