Consuming probiotics drink containing living beneficial organisms promotes a better gut environment by increasing the number of beneficial bacteria and decrease the number of harmful bacteria in the gut. As, 80% of the body’s immunity lies in the gut, a healthy gut is the key to a strong immunity.
Not all probiotic drinks contain the same probiotic strain. Different strains of good bacteria offer different health benefits. Yakult contains Shirota strain, which is recognized by the Ministry of Health under the Food Regulations. These are the 4 proven effects of Yakult in clinical studies:
Strengthens the gut where 80% of the immunity lies
Maintain balance of good and bad bacteria in the intestine
Improve bowel movement (reduce risk of constipation, diarrhoea)
At least one bottle of Yakult daily is enough to provide the benefits. There is no limit to how many bottles of Yakult you can drink in a day, because Yakult is a functional food, not a medicine. What is important is not to drink many bottles at one time, but to continue drinking at least one bottle of Yakult every day.
Yakult probiotic drink is meant to be taken daily in order to ensure the presence of Shirota strain in our intestines, which helps to maintain balance of good and bad bacteria in the gut, improving our gut function which in turn supports our immunity.
Yakult probiotic drink is a food, not a medicine. You may enjoy Yakult at any time that is convenient for you to consume during your daily routine. Having said that, many people find it easy to drink a bottle of Yakult daily if taken during breakfast or after a meal.
