    Hi. I'm excited about this.

    I was reading about probiotics when I found an article on MedicineNet.com.

    It says that research shows that the probiotic strain Bifidobacterium Infantis helps IBS more so than others.

    Proctor & Gamble are working on a new product called "Align".

    It says those that were treated with B.Infantis had a normalization of bowel habits whether they had loose or hard stools.

    I've started looking for probiotics with B.Infantis already in the product.

    Just wanted to let you know.

    I've been using a product called Primadophilus for children, By, Nature's Way.
    It's in powder form, and i just add it to my morning shake, i've been way more regular, and all at the same time instead of a little pebble here and there all day, if you get my meaning!

    I just checked, and it has the Bifidobacterium infantis listed as the second ingredience.

    I found the proctor and gamble product online. I typed in Align and it popped up.

    I order some from them. Plus I found a mixed probiotic and has it in it also.

    I've had a bad time with IBS this week, so am working on it.

    Oh, hey thanks,
    I thought it was too long, been thinking of cutting it down!

    You won't believe this!!!! Just looked at your bio, we have a 6month old orange tiger striped cat too,, AND,
    his name is ZIGGY!!!

    Ours has a little white blaze, and white tipped paws, he was born here, and is one of the goofyist kitties we've had, and a big baby. He started purring for us at 4 wks. old.
    I'm a sucker for orange, or charcoal striped cats!!
    I lost my favorite baby last spring, he was a bobtailed double coated charcoal stripe. Great personality, didn't think i could replace him, but Ziggy is doing a pretty good job.
    All cats are not equal!!!!

    I'm so happy you got a new kitty to love. Aren't they great?

    AND to be name ZIGGY? He's going to make you very happy.

    We should go on the worship board and chat sometime. I'm a believer also.

    I think theres a a new yogurt on the market
    called activa. Its suppose to have that B stuff in it and other live cultures.
    They say within 2 weeks of eating it once a day your bowels will be way more regular. I saw the commercial,..then looked at the grocery store the other day. They had it. It comes in 4 pks for around $2.
    Ya might wanna check that out.
    Take care :)
