Optimal Probiotic Distribution Chewing CulturedCare Probiotic Gum with BLIS K12 increases the probiotic bacteria release and activity time in the mouth, as compared to a chewable tablet for example, and provides more opportunity for colonization of the K12 bacteria.

Probiotics For Your Mouth

About Probiotics
The word pro-biotic literally means for life. Probiotics are friendly, health-promoting bacteria that live virtually everywhere. They live in our soil, air, water and food. They even live in and on us, colonizing in various parts of the body including the mouth and intestinal tract. Restoring and keeping a healthy balance of friendly probiotic bacteria supports our natural immunity and resistance to diseasecausing (pathogenic) bacteria. Probiotic supplements like lactobacillus acidophilus and bifidus have been growing in popularity for promoting gut and digestive health.

About Oral Probiotics

There are many kinds of probiotics, each with their own specific place of origin and job to do. Oral probiotics are the friendly bacteria that live in a healthy mouth. Oral probiotics prevent the overgrowth of unfriendly bacteria and act as our first line of defense against infections that enter through the mouth . Various factors, including the use of antibiotics and medicated mouthwash can reduce or destroy important oral probiotics.

About BLIS K12 An Advanced Oral Probiotic

BLIS K12 is a new, advanced probiotic discovered by Professor John Tagg from the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at the University of Otago in New Zealand. BLIS stands for BacteriocinLike-Inhibitory-Substance and is the naturally occurring component of certain strains of microorganisms (probiotics) which control undesirable and disease-causing bacteria. BLIS K12 is the special BLIS probiotic strain derived from the friendly bacteria S. salivarius. It has been shown to safely control the bacteria that frequently causes strep throat, earache, upper respiratory infections, sinus infections and halitosis (bad breath).




Professor John Tagg and the BLIS K12 Story

Beginning with the very first kiss our parents give us when we are newborns, our mouths come in contact with billions of bacteria. Some are friendly, health-promoting bacteria called Probiotics. Probiotics are live micro-organisms that help to restore the healthy balance of bacteria and raise our natural resistance to infection from harmful germs. But other bacteria, the pathogenic kind, can cause strep throat, earache, upper respiratory infection, sinus infection, and bad breath. When he was just a boy of 12, John Tagg contracted an especially bad case of strep throat that led to rheumatic fever. Rheumatic fever is a delayed, autoimmune reaction to the bacteria that causes strep throat Streptococcus pyogenes. It is a very painful, inflammatory condition that makes joints swell and redden. Because rheumatic fever can permanently weaken and damage the heart, it is important to prevent a recurrence of strep. Johns doctor put him on a course of antibiotics every day for 10 years, a common procedure at the time. This childhood experience inspired Professor Tagg to devote his life to the study of friendly probiotic bacteria that can prevent strep throat and other infections that enter through your mouth. Today, more than 35 years later, Professor Tagg is a world renowned microbiologist from the University of Otago in New Zealand whose targeted research has led to the discovery of S. salivarius BLIS K12, a revolutionary ORAL probiotic that prevents infection (including strep throat) where it begins in your mouth.

Professor John Taggs Probiotic Discovery

After years of research, Professor John Tagg, a scientist in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at the University of Otago in New Zealand discovered BLIS K12, a probiotic that resides in the mouth and protects against infections in the throat, mouth, nose and ears. His discovery has led to the creation of CulturedCare Probiotic Gum with BLIS K12. CulturedCare Probiotic Gum with BLIS K12 CulturedCare One-a-Day Probiotic Gum with BLIS K12 is the chewing gum tablet dosage form of a patented oral probiotic strain S. salivarius K12 that naturally produces Bacteriocin-Like Inhibitory Substances (BLIS).
