The power of probiotics
In order to function healthily, your intestinal tracts need to contain a larger number of the beneficial bacteria than the harmful bacteria. Probiotics (which literally means “for life” in Greek) are similar to these beneficial intestinal bacteria that are added to food and drink products so that people can easily ingest them and enjoy their benefits. In the intestines, they compete with the harmful bacteria for nutrients and space, thereby suppressing their reproduction. This helps to improve the intestinal microbial balance and maintain a healthy digestive system.
Probiotic L.casei strain Shirota
Yakult’s L.casei strain Shirota is an excellent and unique probiotic strain that was biotechnologically strengthened by our founder, Dr Minoru Shirota. The uniqueness of this probiotic strain lies in its strength to survive the gastric juice and bile to reach the intestines alive, where it works to maintain the balance between the beneficial and harmful bacteria.
A bottle of Yakult daily packs a powerful punch to keep bad bacteria at bay and improves your overall digestive system!
