New Zealand-based BLIS Probiotics produces a range of advanced oral care and dental probiotic products containing strains including BLIS K12 and BLIS M18 that help support a healthy mouth and throat.
It was from Professor John Tagg's drive to find a solution to his own health problems that BLIS was born - the world's first oral probiotics - from the mouth, for the mouth. These unique probiotic strains for our oral, dental, and respiratory health are designed to prevent infection before it starts.
Approved by Health Canada, Streptococcus salivarius strains such as BLIS K12 and BLIS M18 provide protection from pathogenic bacteria that can infect teeth and gums, cause bad breath, and develop into respiratory problems. These naturally-occurring strains of oral bacteria not only help prevent infection in the average person, but are also used to help high-performance athletes prepare for competition.
Naming Note: FreshBreath, ThroatGuard PRO, Ears & Throat, and Teeth & Gums from BLIS Probiotics are no longer available to retailers in Canada, but the key ingredient in most of their products (BLIS K12) is licensed for use in other formulas.
