Our Take: Activia and Align
We are asked so often about these two probiotic products that we decided to post our response in the event it could reach more people.



The Good

Bifidus is a helpful strain for the large intestine.

The Bad
-The only reason Align is popular is because it is made by behemoth Procter & Gamble. They creatively market how it is the "Number One recommended probiotic by gastroenterologists." What did they base this upon? Some obscure survey of "participating gastros."
-As probiotics go, it is pretty underwhelming. It contains a very low dose of bifidus (1 billion units).

The Ugly
-The product contains sugar, milk protein (probably casein), and FD&C Blue #1 (artificial color). There is absolutely no reason to include these ingredients in a probiotic.
-It is an absolute rip-off! A 28 count package costs $29.00. Our Ultra Flora contains 7.5 billion bifidus, over seven times the amount in Align, and retails for $64.95 for 120 capsules!



The Good
-The only flavor out of the entire line we recommend is the Stonyfield Organic Activia. And even then, it still contains sugar!
-It has three strains of probiotics.

The Bad
-Most flavors have at least two types of sugar and corn-starch. Some flavors contain wheat. Others contain artificial flavors.
-They do not list the amount of each strain of probiotic.

The Ugly

-Activia Light flavor contains sucralose (Splenda).
-Activia Parfait contains five types of sugar.
-Danone, the huge food conglomerate who makes Activia, copyrighted their bifidus strain "Bifidus Regularis." Could they have been any more blunt about their intentions?
