Info: 60 Lozenges
NOW OralBiotic works by colonizing the oral cavity with BLIS K12 (aided by the inclusion of the prebiotic FOS to provide nutritional support for it). This beneficial bacteria crowds out other bacteria which may have been proliferating and causing a range of issues, including painful gums, a white build up on the tongue, ear aches/infections (otitis media), cavities (dental caries), strep throat (streptococcal pharyngeal infections), or tonsillitis.
Oral Biotic can also help reduce halitosis (bad breath), when used in conjunction with proper oral hygiene. The lozenges have a natural strawberry and vanilla flavour.

1 Billion Colony Forming Units of BLIS K12® Streptococcus salivarius
