Posted: December 2, 2011If you've been wondering about the future of bad breath treatment, then look no further than TheraBreath's BLIS Probiotics. These cutting-edge halitosis therapies do what no other breath freshener can, which is to naturally limit your mouth's ability to produce bad breath.
How do they do it? The key is a pair of carefully cultivated microbial strains that gradually force odor-causing bacteria out of your mouth. This makes our probiotics the next generation in halitosis-fighting technology.
Here's how it works.
Your mouth is brimming with bacteria, many of which are essentially harmless. According to the latest scientific estimates, you have more than 600 different species of microorganisms in your mouth, accounting for billions of individual bacteria.
A few of these species are real stinkers. Called anaerobic bacteria, they thrive in a relatively dry environment. When your mouth gets parched, these microbes go to town on the food particles on your tongue and between your teeth. They emit the odor molecules that give halitosis its bad smell, and they also contribute to cavities and gum disease.
Here's where BLIS Probiotics come in handy. Our probiotics products contain two healthy strains of bacteria, called Streptococcus salivarius M12 and K18. These species do two things that naturally limit your bad breath.
First, they compete with odor-causing microorganisms for the food and proteins in your mouth, giving them less to live on. Second, and perhaps more importantly, the good bacteria produce a protein called bacteriocin-like inhibitory substance (BLIS). This substance kills bad breath-causing microbes, leaving the probiotic strains in charge of your mouth.
Research published in journals like Future Medicine and the Proceedings of the International and American Association for Dental Research has established the BLIS Probiotics can prevent halitosis. Likewise, probiotics may reduce the risk of gum disease, cavities and oral infections.
