The BLIS K12™ strain was originally discovered as scientists tracked the oral health of a child with exceptional throat health for several years. Scientists found that a particular strain of S. salivarius (later named BLIS K12) was associated with ear and throat health.* S. salivarius K12 was isolated from the mouths of healthy humans and can help to establish or re-establish a healthy balance of beneficial bacteria in the oral cavity.* BLIS probiotics are the first oral-cavity probiotics that are actually native to the oral cavity and naturally colonize in the oral cavity.
BLIS K12™ is now marketed world-wide as an advanced probiotic for the oral cavity (mouth). It is a specific and proprietary strain of S. salivarius which acts to maintain fresh breath naturally while specifically supporting throat and ear health.*
