BLIS K12™ is the first probiotic specifically developed to support ear and throat health, as well as promote fresh breath.
BLIS K12 is an extremely safe yet powerful strain of a bacteria called Streptococcus salivarius which normally occurs in the mouth and throat.
S. salivarius is a naturally occurring oral microbe that appears in newborns shortly after birth. While most people have the non-specific S. salivarius populations, an estimated 2% of the human population has an abundant amount of more potent strains like BLIS K12. Studies show that children with naturally occurring microbial strains like K12 are better able to maintain mouth and throat health.
S. salivarius K12 was discovered and isolated by renowned microbiologist Professor John Tagg at the University of Otago in New Zealand.
