Your Yakult bottle contains 80 milliliters and that’s an adequate amount of tummy protection you need for the day. It’s perfectly fine to drink more than one!
Here’s something to digest:
The name Yakult is derived from the Esperanto word “jahurto”, which means Yogurt.
Here’s something very good to know:
There are about 8 BILLION live Lactobacillus casei strain Shirota in one bottle of Yakult!
Because there are over 80,000 Yakult ladies worldwide!

Lactobacilli are well traveled!
The human digestive system spans 30 feet, from your mouth all the way to the large intestines. And Yakult’s Lactobacillus casei strain Shirota makes it through the whole journey!
Did you know Yakult originally came in Glass bottles?
But in order to get it to as many people as possible, in 1968 we switched to the iconic bottle we all know and love today!
It’s not just for your tummy!
In Japan, Lactobacillus is used as an ingredient for things such as milk, moisturizer, and even medicine!
Yakult is a canvas for creativity, too!
Over the years, Yakult lovers all over the world have gotten into Yakult bottle craft, transforming empty bottles of Yakult to make beautiful works of art, decorations, and miniature dolls.
Have you met Lactobacillus casei’s brother Bifidobacterium Breve?
Bifidobacterium Breve strain Yakult produces lactic and acetic acid in your digestive system to help enhance bowel movement and prevent harmful bacteria from multiplying.
Good time to drink!
Anytime is a good time drink Yakult, but the most ideal time is right after every meal
In Japan
Yakult has a version called Yakult 400 that has 40 BILLION live Lactobacillus casei strain Shirota! That’s over five times the population of the earth!
