What is Yakult?
Yakult is a fermented milk drink with Lactobacillus casei Shirota strain, a live probiotic strain of good bacteria. The bacteria cultures are imported from a mother strain in Japan regardless of production location.
In India, Yakult was launched in 2007 and is manufactured at a HACCP certified state-of-the-art facility at Rai, Sonepat (Haryana).
Why should I drink Yakult everyday?
Each bottle of Yakult contains approximately 6.5 billion of bacteria which is enough to replenish the levels of good bacteria in the digestive system. Because of this, it helps maintain your gut flora. That means it protects your digestive system from dehydration, inactivity, and abnormal eating habits. By drinking Yakult everyday, it keeps the balance between the good and harmful bacteria living in the digestive system.
Are Yakult and yogurt the same?
Though yogurt and Yakult are both dairy product made from fermented milk with live cultures, Yakult is different from yogurt due to the Lactobacillus casie shirota strain present in Yakult, which makes Yakult unique. Eating yogurt and drinking Yakult complement with each other, so do not substitute one another.
My Experience with Yakult
I am the kind of person who love to eat but who also have a sensitive stomach. I always suffer from stomach infection and loose bowel whenever I eat oily and not-so-clean food. Almost every day for more than 1 year now, I have been drinking Yakult and I found an improvement on my gut health. Ever since, I rarely had stomach infection and whenever I have stomach upset, a bottle of Yakult is always my first aid. My grocery list is not complete without Yakult.
