Smokers, drink your Yakult!

A recent study published in the British Journal of Nutrition has found that daily supplements of the probiotic Lactobacillus casei shirota, which is a proprietary strain used in Yakult, a Japanese yogurt drink, popular in Korea and throughout Asia, may boost activity of key immune cells in smokers.

On a side note, it also showed promise in reducing symptoms of nausea and stomach aches.
