Why is Aktiv-K12 completely different from any other bad breath treatment available?
Why all bacteria in your mouth isn't created equal? (Hint: Some of it you need, and some of it you don't!)
How to ensure your oral environment is the most compatible for fresh breath, all the time.
Aktiv-K12: The Long-Term Relief For Chronic Bad Breath AND the First Therapy That Promotes Optimum Oral Health
I've been addressing the problems of bad breath, dry mouth, and taste disorders since 1993.
The clinical treatment that many of you may have seen on TV or read about in newspapers or
magazines since that time, is based on the research that my brother Dr. Richard Katz and I
developed at the Los Angeles branch of The California Breath Clinics.
What you will discover
During our initial testing at The California Breath Clinics, nearly every subject noticed the following:
An instant clean, fresh taste in their mouth
More Saliva, and longer lasting salivation
Less phlegm and mucous buildup in the throat
And, of course fresher breath and loss of "morning breath"
Continuing research has corroborated our findings: Bad breath, in nearly all cases, is due
to anaerobic sulfur-producing bacteria, breeding beneath the surface of the tongue, and
often in the throat and tonsil area. These anaerobic (oxygen-hating) bacteria are found in
the mouths of everyone on the face of the earth. They are supposed to be there, because they
serve a function - they initiate the first stages of digestion by breaking down the proteins
in foods that we eat (and also assist in the breakdown of oral tissue as they regenerate).
Unfortunately, the side effect of this chemical breakdown can easily be detected as bad
breath or sour/bitter/metallic tastes, because the breakdown chemicals are odorous
compounds (Volatile Sulfur Compounds) such as Hydrogen Sulfide (the rotten egg smell),
Methyl Mercaptan (an odor associated with garlic or smelly gym socks), and more rare
chemicals such as cadaverine and putrescine. (Yes, those are real terms!)
I am often asked the following excellent question: "Why is it that my (boyfriend, wife, co-worker, etc) NEVER has bad breath?
I never see them brush or floss and they eat garlic, onions and smoke a pack
a day. But, I brush and floss 10 times a day, use the strongest mouthwash,
toothpaste, breath mints, and drink 12 glasses of water daily and I still
have bad breath?"
Well, it all boils down to bacteria. A very small percentage of humans have
a higher percentage of "GOOD" bacteria than others. (This was proved in a
ground-breaking study, published in 2003, and detailed later on, in the SCIENCE
Section of this report).
For years, it was simply a theory, but research at universities in opposites
corners of the globe has led to a clinically-proven system that can allow EVERYONE
to have this "better" selection of bacteria, ensuring 24/7 fresh breath - and
MANY related health benefits as well (preventing sore throats, stronger teeth,
healthier gums, and perhaps even more!).
Only 2% of the world's population have these amazing "beneficial bugs"
(Streptococcus salivarius strain K12). The way they protect those lucky 2% is
by producing a natural protein (harmless to humans), called B.L.I.S. (an abbreviation
of Bacteriocin Like Inhibitory Substances).
A "bacteriocin" is a protein chain,
produced by beneficial bacteria in order to inhibit the growth of related bacteria.
Studies have also shown that the loss of these GOOD bacteria, following the
use of antibiotics and/or misuse of common antimicrobial agents, may allow
pathogenic bacteria to invade the human body, because the "GOOD" guys get wiped
out along with many "bad bugs".
The BEST NEWS is that the same BLIS K12 is now exclusively available to you
in the TheraBreath Aktiv-K12 System.
NOW, let me get right to the point
(Those of you, like me, who need to know
WHY this is such a revolutionary achievement, can read the details in the
Scientific Studies Section):
We now have available a patented and highly concentrated version of these "GOOD"
bacteria (Aktiv-K12) that will produce natural "anti-bad bacteria" proteins
(BLIS). In about a month, through a simple system of rinsing & gargling with
2 different mouthwash formulas, you can actually end up with the same natural
protection as the lucky 2% of the population who never worry about bad breath.
You'll still need to maintain good oral hygiene and you must also
provide these "GOOD" bacteria with an oral environment that will allow them to
thrive. The scientists behind this research have worked with me for the past 16
months and agree that TheraBreath formulas are the IDEAL oral products for
optimum oral health.
TheraBreath Aktiv-K12 can be used by nearly everyone. However, it
was initially designed for those with severe and chronic Halitosis. If your breath disorder can
be controlled by TheraBreath products, you may not need Aktiv-K12.
We recommend an initial 30-day dosing and perhaps a follow-up 30 day dose every 6 months.
Aktiv-K12 Probiotics are not a substitute for basic oral hygiene techniques,
nor are they a replacement for TheraBreath formulas. In fact, researchers who
worked on the development of Aktiv-K12 agree that Aktiv-K12 Probiotics can only
work to their ultimate potency when used with TheraBreath products as your daily
oral hygiene formulas.
Using oral products that contain alcohol MAY interfere with colonization.
