The BLIS M18™ 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 M18™) was associated with teeth and gum health.* S. salivarius M18 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 M18™ 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 support a healthy smile.*
