I am currently using the Align brand for this for chronic constipation. It helps a little. Does anyone know of any that are vegan?

The capsules are vegan, dairy- and gluten-free, which is sure to meet most dietary requirements.
Keep in mind that dietary supplements like probiotics aren’t tested by the FDA like medications are. You may want to consult with a practitioner, like a registered dietitian, who is familiar with probiotics. And let your doctor know that you are using probiotics for constipation, or doing other things that may affect your health.

You need more fiber, more water, and more exercise. And eat regular meals.

That'll do more for constipation than all the ”vegan probiotics” in the store.

There are other vegan options loaded with probiotics:
sauerkraut, kimchi, naturally pickled vegetables, miso paste, fermented tea (kombucha) etc.

A squatty potty can help your condition too:

Most of these items purchased in stores contain NO probiotics as they have been pasteurized, which kills the valuable bacteria we know as probiotics. Only naturally fermented and non-pasteurized foods contain living bacteria or probiotics.

Been there, done that. It's all over with that. I have pelvic floor dyssynergia. 2 GI doctors, 1 rectum anal surgeon, 2 biofeedback physical therapists who specialize in it...

Some purchased items might not contain any probiotics, some have added probiotics but the best way is just to make them at home. Pretty easy too.

If you have all those specialists working on your condition, then why are you asking some random Internet users for their opinion. Do what the doctors tell you to do. Only they can really help you.

It's one thing to eat probiotic and the other thing is to preserve your gut biome. Kombucha, eating raw plants, fermented plants, and not using fluoride toothpaste and mouthwash. People don't realize that your gut bacteria can get wiped out easily by the mouthwash and toothpaste you use. The other thing is eating foods high in preservatives that will kill your gut bacteria.
