Ive been seeing it at the store and kept ignoring it.... But Sunday on a whim I decided to buy & try some out of curiosity...

When I got home I looked at the ingredients:

Ingredients: water, skimmed milk (reconstituted), glucose-fructose syrup, sugar, maltodextrin, flavouring, contains Lactobacillus casei Shirota.....


So whats your take on Yakult?

I haven't heard of it before. I'd probably avoid it since I avoid sugars and flavorings, and take probiotic capsules instead.

What do you think of it?

It taste fine & is easily drinkable (its about 2-3 drinks)... But wont be getting it again, I dont like the sugar & stuff that is in it.. Im just not "sold" on it, thats why I ask if anyone else had tried & seen positive changes from taking it.

I've never heard of it, but seeing that ingredient list, it's not something I'd use.

I've never tried it, but it's hugely popular in China.  My students would normally have one a day in the morning...

Im HORRIBLE at taking pills. and most make me sick to my stomach..

But really I bought it out of pure curiosity & was just wondering if anyone else had an opinion about it..

They also have chewable and powder probiotics if that would be easier for you.
