Proven Probiotic Power

Probiotics are live beneficial bacteria that help the overall balance of bacteria in the digestive system. However, not all probiotics can achieve the same health outcomes in the body!

Probiotics are identified by their 3-part name, made up of the genus, species, and strain. For example:

The benefits seen from probiotics are referred to as “strain-specific” – meaning researched benefits of a particular strain of probiotic bacteria cannot be generalised to a different strain of bacteria, even if they have the same genus and species.

What is special about Yakult’s Lacticaseibacillus paracasei Shirota (LcS) strain?

Yakult is the only product in the world to contain the unique probiotic bacteria: Lacticaseibacillus paracasei Shirota strain or LcS for short.

LcS has over 85 years of scientific research behind its benefits and efficacy. The key evidence-based benefits of LcS includes:

It survives through the gut to reach the intestines alive, which is important to gain its benefits


It improves our bacterial balance by increasing the number of beneficial bacteria in the intestines

It encourages regular bowel movements through improving stool consistency


How do I get these benefits?

To be able to experience the benefit of Yakult, consistency is key!

Probiotic bacteria that is consumed cannot permanently stay in your gut long-term, so drinking one bottle of Yakult daily is the best way to ensure you obtain and maintain the LcS benefits.

Make sure you give the probiotics time to take action – it is recommended that Yakult is consumed daily for a minimum of 2-3 weeks to allow for the bacteria to begin influencing your health.
