What is Actimel ?

Actimel is a delicious probiotic drinking yogurt which contains the unique culture L.casei
Imunitass®, which can help support your body's defences by topping up the levels of good
bacteria.
Your body's immune system may be weakened by a hectic lifestyle, lack of sleep and/or a poor
diet. This is where Actimel can help to support your body's defence.

What is L.casei Imunitass® ?


What is the difference between Actimel containing L.casei Imunitass® and other yogurts?
The L.casei Imunitass® culture in Actimel is a unique probiotic strain. L.casei Imunitass® is the
trademarked name for the L.casei culture that is exclusive to Danone.
The probiotic culture L.casei Imunitass® is more resistant to stomach acids than many other
cultures and is therefore able to reach the intestine in higher concentrations. This is how Actimel
helps support our body's defences.
L.casei Imunitass® was selected by Danone's international research centre for its probiotic
characteristics and its beneficial effect on health.

What are Probiotics ?


Probiotics are good bacteria that are naturally present in our gut/intestine and they are also found
in some drinking yogurts like Actimel.
The World Health Organisation defines probiotics as: "live bacteria that when eaten in sufficient
quantities, have a beneficial effect on our health (WHO 2002). Probiotic drinking yoghurts and
yogurts contain these live bacteria which help our health in different ways, depending on the
strain of the bacteria and the amount of it in the product that we eat or drink".

What is the Scientific Evidence ?


17 clinical studies on over 3000 people have been conducted to understand the benefits of
Actimel.
For Students

Danone Actimel wanted to demonstrate its positive probiotic effects on the body’s defences
during periods of intense intellectual stress. A study was therefore carried out on university
students aged 18 and 23 during 2 separate exam periods.
The results showed that the daily consumption of Actimel significantly increased the presence of
some type of immune cells which are vital in maintaining and supporting your body’s defences
and immune system.

How it Works
Our immune system is one of our body's defences, it helps us to cope with illness and disease.

A stressful life, lack of sleep and eating a poor diet can challenge our immune system so we may
be more vulnerable.

Leading a healthy lifestyle is very important but you can also give your body a helping hand by
drinking Actimel and topping up your good bacteria.

Actimel is scientifically proven to help support your body’s defences making

Staying Healthy in Winter


Winter is a time when we are all prone to feeling under the weather. This is because bugs develop much more easily
when it is cold, and so our natural defences are more readily challenged. Hence, we should take care of our body and
help our natural defences. This winter, why not try an Actimel a day as Actimel is scientifically proven to help
support your body's defences*.
To help support your defences this winter:
• Eat 5 portions of fruit and vegetables a day
• Drink plenty of water
• Take regular exercise
• Try to limit the stress in your life
• Drink Actimel every morning
Actimel is available in 13 different flavours so you can treat your taste buds throughout winter too!
