What Is BLIS K12™?
BLIS K12™ colonizes in the oral cavity by attaching to cells in your mouth and crowding out bacteria*. This process is known as bacterial interference or competitive exclusion*. Taking an oral probiotic that contains BLIS K12™ will promote levels of beneficial bacteria in the oral cavity which may help support the immune system, fresh breath, upper respiratory system and oral cavity overall.
Years of research went into finding a way to deliver BLIS K12™ to the mouth and throat in such a way that it could colonize effectively. Lozenges and powder are ideal formats as the BLIS K12™ bacteria can stay alive in that format for at least two years when stored correctly. They do not have to be kept in the fridge – but if you live in a hot, humid environment, you may want to give them added protection by keeping them cool. Think of bacteria in the mouth as weeds in the garden. It’s easier to keep your garden in good shape by weeding regularly, than battling an overgrown garden on the odd occasion.
