I don't trust Align because it contains titanium dioxide among other ingredients which may be a problem.
I found that Culturelle with LACTOBACILLUS GG probiotic to be very helpful for my UC when there was no extra stuff in it. Then they changed the formula to add junk into the “other ingredients”. Not nearly as effective for me anymore. I now use Lactobacillus Reuteri (NCIMB 30242) which has a modest benefit but not nearly as powerful as Culturelle before they added junk.OTHER INGREDIENTS(Culturelle):
hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, sucrose, maltodextrin, vegetable magnesium stearate, titanium dioxide (color), and silicon dioxide.
is another toxic ingredient to watch for in many pharmaceuticals and supplements. All we need to hear now is that magnesium stearate causes IBD and half the pills in America need to be thrown out. http://health.usnews.com/health-news/news/articles/2012/05/21/could-compound-in-artificial-sweeteners-worsen-crohns-diseaseThe food additive maltodextrin, commonly used in some artificial sweeteners, may worsen Crohn's disease by encouraging the growth of E. coli bacteria in the small intestine, a new study suggests.
