Yakult USA Website

"Yakult is the world’s leading probiotic drink. It was developed in 1935 by a Japanese microbiologist, Dr. Shirota, who aspired to create a healthy product that everyone could afford. Now more than 25 million people throughout the world enjoy Yakult every day. One bottle of Yakult contains more than 8 billion Lactobacillus casei Shirota – the “friendly bacteria” that helps balance your digestive system and support immune functioning".

I grew up drinking Yakult in Hong Kong. The Chinese name for Yakult literally means "more healthy energy" and I do notice that I have more energy after drinking 2 bottles of Yakult a day for a week.
