I have known Yakult for a very long time, I drink them very often when I was young, my parents love them as well. When I started to hit my teens, I didn't bother drinking any healthy drinks anymore but recently I found my self going back to the same brand I used to enjoy and it's the one and only Yakult. I'm now in my early thirty's so I'm starting to be more aware about those healthy drink that might help me in the long run. Yakult contains Lactobacillus casei Shirota, a friendly bacteria that were Develop by Dr Minoru Shirota. It's been around 70 years, initially produced in Japan but its now made in Holland for distribution in Europe. ... Read the complete review

Yakult is a fermented milk drink that contains 6.5 billion "good" bacteria (L-Casei Shirota) per 65ml dose. It originated in Japan in 1935 and is now produced in the Netherlands. One pack of seven mini bottles will set you back around £2.65 and it is "recommended" by the manufacturers that you drink one bottle per day to hel "keep your gut healthy and supposrt your natural defences". On the whole I am against these bacteria filled expensive little bottles that now appear in all supermarkets- whether it be Yakult or Actimel or a supermarket's own "probiotic" drink that promises to give you a "healthier gut" if ...

I'm quite good at eating healthy food due to being diabetic, and really do try to eat yogurts regularly but somehow fail. When I worked full time PC (pre-children) I used to take a packed lunch (made by my own fair hands) and this included a yogurt which I always ate and enjoyed. However, since reducing my working hours down to nil I find I just can't eat a yogurt at home for some reason...so I have recently been buying these little bottles of miracle juice known as Yakult. So what are they?~ Okay, here's the technical bit: Yakult contains a bacteria called Lactobacillus Casei. Bacteria? Yes, but this is Good bacteria what your body needs to make your ...

I am not a breakfast person. The smell of anything cooked before 11am makes me heave, which is bad news when you live with a guy that thinks itís fine to make fish curries at 7 am. In order to have something to get me going before I stagger bleary eyed out of the house each morning Iím forever trying breakfast replacement products, you know the sort of thing, cereal bars, various kinds of yougurty stuff and little bottles of live bacteria. A week or so ago, I was picking up a few bits in the corner shop and was looking for some Actimal, as Iíd been favouring this for a while and had finished off my last bottle that morning. I scanned the shelves, high and low ... Read the complete review

Yakult is a dairy milk based drink produced by fermenting milk in a special strain of friendly bacteria, Lactobacillus casei Shirota. It is supposed to help maintain healthly levels of intestinal flora by using up resources used by bad bacteria and candida albicans, therefore allowing good bacteria to thrive. I noticed improved digestion and reduced stomach discompfort about 1 weeks after I started consuming the product, apparently it takes around 2 weeks for the bacteria to colonise the gut but after 1 week it must have gotten rid of most of the bad bacteria. Standard Yakult contains more sugar per 100ml than coke but due to its small size it is more ... Read the complete review
