Product Notes:

Proven Probiotic Breath Freshener: Fresh Biotics can help reduce halitosis (bad breath), when used in conjunction with proper oral hygiene.

These chewable or readily dissolvable tablets embody a blend of several types of well-researched probiotics to promote a healthy oral microbiome. The strains in Fresh Biotics provide a first line of defence against infections by competing against the bacteria that cause bad breath and other oral and upper respiratory issues.

What Causes Bad Breath?

Halitosis, or bad breath, occurs in up to 50% of the adult population, and has significant negative and psychological impacts on affected individuals. In most cases, it is due to the metabolic activity of a broad range of bacterial species which colonize the mouth, particularly the dorsum (upper surface) of the tongue. These bacteria metabolize sulfur-containing amino acids – cysteine and methionine – to produce malodorous volatile sulfur compounds (VSCs) such as hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and methyl mercaptan (CH3SH). A clinical diagnosis of halitosis involves detection of one or both of these compounds in mouth air.

In cases where halitosis results from poor oral hygiene practices (“transient halitosis”), treatment commonly involves the use of a chlorhexidine-containing mouthwash in combination with a rigorous oral hygiene strategy. In severe cases, and in individuals whose oral hygiene is already excellent (“true halitosis”), such treatment is supplemented with a course of broad-spectrum antibiotics. This approach often accords short-term benefits, as the offensive bacteria readily repopulate and recolonize the oral niche once treatment ceases.

How Does Fresh Biotics Work?

AOR's successor to Breath Biotics (a similar-acting formula that contained the oral probiotic Streptococcus salivarius BLIS K12), Fresh Biotics works by colonizing the oral cavity with beneficial bacteria that can "crowd out" other bacteria which may be present and proliferating. This formula contains a total of one billion CFU of three well-researched strains to help with bad breath and address the cause of a range of other oral health issues including white-coloured build-up on the tongue; painful gums; ear aches or infections (otitis media); throat infections (streptococcal pharyngeal); or even tonsillitis).

Lactobacillus plantarum KABP™-051: 0.333 x 10⁹ CFU
