Not all bacteria are bad. In fact, some bacteria are so good for us that we call them 'probiotics,' which means 'for life.' According to Health Canada and the World Health Organization, probiotic microorganisms "when administered in adequate amounts confer a health benefit" to us. CulturedCare is a family-owned Canadian probiotic supplement company dedicated to working with accomplished scientists to develop safe and efficacious probiotic products that promote overall health, provide infectious protection, and enhance quality of life.
CulturedCare Probiotic Chewing Gum delivers a deliciously fresh and powerful dose of BLIS K12 patented probiotic. Their gum-making methods facilitate 100% complete release of this active probiotic in the mouth within just 5 to 10 minutes of chewing. CulturedCare is based upon years of research by Professor John Tagg, a scientist in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at the University of Otago in New Zealand. Professor Tagg's research supports his premise that "infection protection starts in the mouth."
