Probiotics: Not only for the gut

There are bacteria everywhere in and on our bodies that help us stay healthy. In fact, they are essential to life itself. Probiotics are beneficial live bacteria that you introduce to your body to provide a health benefit. Until now, the type of probiotic that most people know about are those that work in the gut but there are other types that provide benefit to other areas of the body. BLIS Probiotics are one of the other types; they are oral probiotics which colonise the oral cavity with beneficial bacteria, restoring the balance back in the mouth and throat. This can help support overall immunity and may assist in providing protection from some of the bugs that can cause illness. We have 2 key strains of beneficial bacteria in BLIS Probiotics: BLIS K12® and BLIS M18®
What can BLIS Oral Probiotics protect me against?
Both BLIS K12 and BLIS M18 are special strains of bacteria that we all have living in our mouths called Streptococcus salivarius. BLIS K12 and BLIS M18 only occur naturally in a small percentage of the population, so for the rest of us, taking BLIS Probiotics will colonise the mouth and throat with millions of beneficial bacteria, which in turn can offer protection against some of the ‘bad’ bacteria that you encounter every day.
If you think of your mouth as the gateway to your body, this is where you allow millions of microbes to get in every day – just by breathing! BLIS K12 is particularly good at fighting some of the bugs that might cause ENT issues like sore throats and ear infections, while BLIS M18 is focussed in the mouth to help support the health of teeth and gums. It can work against bacteria that might cause further cavities, or gum disease.
ThroatHealth and ThroatHelath for Kids with BLIS K12 are designed for the whole family. For older children and adults, ThroatHealth with BLIS K12 comes in a once-a-day high-dose lozenge that simply dissolves on the tongue. ThroatHealth for Kids with BLIS K12 is a powder version for children aged 6 + months that is easy to deliver directly into their mouth or sprinkle on food.
Teeth&Gums with BLIS M18 is a high dose daily lozenge for children and adults to help keep a good balanjce of beneficial bactiera in the oral cavity.
BLIS K12 and BLIS M18 were discovered through the work of Professor John Tagg at Otago University in New Zealand back in the 80’s so there has been a lot of studying how the bugs work and testing them for safety and efficiacy. BLIS K12 and BLIS M18 have GRAS status in the USA which is granted by the FDA.
