Meiji LG21 Yogurt: Effective in Inhibiting H. Pylori Activity
It is said that one in two Japanese is infected with Helicobacter Pylori. As you know, the bacteria infects the stomach and not only causes chronic gastritis and gastric ulcers but also brings about stomach cancer.

But now, Japan has a super-food-like dairy product against Helicobacter Pylori. In 2000, the leading Japanese food company Meiji introduced an epoch-making yogurt product called “Probio Yogurt LG21” which actually is effective in inhibiting H. Pylori activity.
The probiotic yogurt comes in several flavors and is also available in sugar-free and drink bottle varieties, and thanks to the health benefits, now the Meiji LG21 Yogurt is said to sell more than one million every day.
Actually, the product name, LG21 is derived from the name of the lactic acid bacteria “Lactobacillus gasseri OLL2716” and the 21st century. In addition to multiplying rapidly, the special lactic acid bacteria are resistant to gastric acid and work well even in the stomach.
In fact, according to this article on J-Cast News, recent research has proved that the success rate of the eradication treatment for H. pylori increases in combination with the intake of the LG21 Probio yogurt.
However, by eating the yogurt only a couple of times, you can’t get its benefits. As with Meiji R1 Yogurt, in order to have the Lactobacillus gasseri OLL2716 bacteria permanently stay in your stomach, you need to take the LG21 yogurt on a daily basis.
