Yakult drinks for medical frontliners


KUCHING: Yakult Malaysia Sdn Bhd has contributed 1,500 bottles of Yakult prebiotic drinks to the medical frontliners at the Sibu General Hospital, KPJ Sibu Specialist Medical Centre and Rejang Medical Centre as a sign of support for their efforts in curbing the Covid-19 virus.

The managing director of Yakult Malaysia Sdn Bhd, Hiroshi Hamada said that it was one  way of thanking the frontliners during this pandemic.

“We hope that our products will help to support the immune system of our frontliners and, at the same time, reduce the risk of infections.” He said.

Yakult has also been providing free probiotic drinks to medical frontliners in other hospitals throughout Malaysia during the movement control order (MCO).   

Hamada added that this initiative was in line with Yakult’s corporate philosophy of contributing to the health and happiness of the people around the world.

“We will continue to encourage Malaysians to maintain healthy guts through regular consumption of Probiotics because 70 percent of immunity lies in the gut.

“Thus, maintaining a healthy gut is the first step to building a strong immune system,” he added.

In addition, each bottle of Yakult probiotic drink contains 30 billion of the Shirota strain probiotics that can reach the gut alive, as acknowledged in the Malaysian Food Act and Regulations.

The drinks are certified halal by the Malaysian Islamic Development Department (Jakim) and manufactured in the Yakult factory in Seremban, Negeri Sembilan.
