Meiji R-1: The Yogurt Boosts Your Immune System
Every morning, when I eat breakfast, I definitely have a yogurt drink called “Meiji R-1”.
Meiji R1 Yogurt
Actually, the Meiji R1 yogurt is a kind of superfood from the leading Japanese food company Meiji which comes in 2 types, normal yogurt form, and drink form.
Because of its benefits, Meiji R1 became a topic of conversation several years ago.
Now widely loved in Japan, the probiotic yogurt and its yogurt drinks are available at almost any supermarket and convenience store around the country.
The reason why Meiji R-1 has gained deep-rooted popularity is that the Japanese probiotic yogurt literally has excellent health benefits.
Actually, the yogurt contains the lactic acid bacteria known for producing lots of exopolysaccharides (EPS), called “OLL1073R-1”, and the EPS has the effect of strengthening the immune system.
Specifically, exopolysaccharides activate natural killer cells (NK cells) that boost the ability of the immune system to fight against cancer, influenza, and common colds, so the most expected effect of Meiji R-1 yogurt is to improve immunity.
As an actual proof, during the period ranging from September 2010 to March 2011, an extensive study program of the probiotic yogurt was conducted in the town of Arita, Saga Prefecture, where elementary school children were assigned to eat a cup of R-1 yogurt every day.
As a result, their influenza infection rate amazingly dropped to 1/10 compared to the elementary school children who didn’t eat R-1 yogurt at all.
Not only that, but actually Meiji R-1 yogurt is also effective in improving intestinal environments and preventing arthritis, rheumatism, and skin troubles.
As you can see from the above, the Japanese yogurt Meiji R-1 has such great health benefits, but to see its effects, you need to eat a cup or drink a bottle of the probiotic yogurt on a daily basis. As for me, I have hardly caught a cold since I began eating R1 yogurt every day.
