- Oral Probiotic Bacteria
The mouth is home to billions of bacteria – both good and bad. BLIS K12 is good oral probiotic bacteria that protects against infections where they most often enter the body – through the oral cavity (mouth).
- Immune Booster
Contains a therapeutic dose of BLIS K12, oral probiotic bacteria shown to act as an immune system booster.
- Good for ear, nose and throat health
CulturedCare Probiotic Gum with BLIS K12 promotes ear, nose and throat health. Professor Tagg’s research has shown BLIS K12 to especially protect against infections that cause sore throats, earache, upper respiratory distress.
- Stops Bad Breath
Halitosis (bad breath) is often caused by unfriendly bacteria “off-gassing” in the mouth. CulturedCare Probiotic Gum with BLIS K12 stops the growth of these bacteria and recolonizes the mouth and oral cavity with friendly probiotic bacteria.
- Chewing Gum Form
Because BLIS K12 is an oral-cavity probiotic, it needs to be delivered in a format that has prolonged contact with the mouth, making a chewing gum the perfect delivery system. 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.
- Sweetened with Xylitol
Xylitol is a plant-based natural sweetener that is safe for diabetics and has been shown to prevent tooth decay and gun disease. Hundreds of published studies found xylitol promotes oral health.
- There are products that interfere with BLIS-K12 in a negative way: primarily antibiotics and antibacterial mouthwashes reduce the healthy flora in our mouths.
- There are products that interact positively withBLIS-K12: fermented foods such as yogurt are another source of beneficial bacteria.
Stevia extract, xylitol and isomalt are used as the only sweeteners. All three of these naturally sweet substances are derived from plants. Researchers have concluded that they have multiple health benefits including the prevention and reduction of cavities, dental plaque, bone loss, ear infections, and oral candida yeast infections.
