Halitosis, or bad breath, can be caused by a number of factors. It may indicate a local exposure to malodorous foods, an infection or a deeper more systemic concern. The odour itself relates to volatile compounds that have a high sulfur content and are produced by gram negative bacteria on the tongue, or between and around teeth. Halitosis can be transient (such as from sulfuric foods, tobacco products, or dry mouth) or it can persist. Persistent halitosis can indicate a systemic or local infection, post nasal drip, GERD, kidney disease, or even liver failure, though systemic diseases only account for 10% of these cases. Cleaning the tongue, by brushing or with mouthwashes, can remove some of the offensive compounds (food remnants, dead cells etc.) that the bacteria feed on, clear away bacteria themselves, or mask the odour for a period of time. But treatment of the underlying cause is ultimately best practice. One of the most effective treatments is to ensure that the oral microbiota is healthy. Breath Biotics with BLIS K12 contains a patented strain of the probiotic Streptococcus salivarius K12, to ensure a healthy oral microflora. By increasing the good bacteria present in the mouth you can reduce bacteria that cause bad breath, and strengthen your first line of defense against infections.
AOR’s Breath Biotics provides one billion CFU (colony forming units) of the well-researched, patented strain of healthy bacteria Streptococcus salivarius K12, in a delicious, mint flavoured lozenge for improved oral health. Breath biotics with BLIS K12 is a perfect product for combating any form of bad breath, and can be used in place of chewing gum or mints to freshen breath while addressing the heart of the problem and promoting oral health.
Breath Biotics is Streptococcus salivarius K12, an oral probiotic which helps reduce halitosis (bad breath), following antimicrobial rinsing and promotes oral health. Breath Biotics can also help reduce the incidence of sore throat caused by pathogenic Streptococcus pyogenes.
