Fill your Mouth with Friendly Bacteria
Did you know that your mouth is home to billions of bacteria? Some of these bacteria are friendly, protective probiotic bacteria that act as our first line of defense against the unfriendly bacteria and viruses that enter through our mouths and noses. By chewing just one piece of CulturedCare™ Probiotic Gum with BLIS K12™ daily, we can populate our mouths with these infection-fighting probiotics that protect the throat, mouth, nose and ears.
About BLIS K12™ – An advanced Oral Probiotic
BLIS K12™ is a new, advanced probiotic discovered by Professor John Tagg from the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at the University of Otago in New Zealand. BLIS stands for Bacteriocin-Like-Inhibitory-Substance and is the naturally occurring component of certain strains of micro-organisms (probiotics) which control undesirable and disease-causing bacteria. BLIS K12™ is the special BLIS probiotic strain derived from the friendly bacteria Streptococcus salivarius. It has been shown to safely control the bacteria that frequently cause strep throat, earache, upper respiratory infections, sinus infections and halitosis (bad breath).
5 Good Reasons to Chew CulturedCare™ Probiotic Gum with BLIS K12™
- Provides Infection Protection
Contains a therapeutic dose of BLIS K12™, oral probiotic bacteria that fight sore throats, earaches and upper respiratory infections.
- Stops Bad Breath
Halitosis (bad breath) is often caused by unfriendly bacteria “off-gassing” in the mouth. CulturedCare™ Probiotic Gum with BLIS K12™ stops the growth of these bacteria and recolonizes the mouth and oral cavity with friendly probiotic bacteria.
- Provides Optimal Probiotic Distribution
Chewing CulturedCare™ Probiotic Gum with BLIS K12™ increases the probiotic bacteria release and activity time in the mouth, as compared to a chewable tablet for example, and provides more opportunity for colonization of the K12 bacteria.
- Cold-Pressed Technology
CulturedCare™ Probiotic Gum with BLIS K12™ is made with a superior gum-making technology. Through cold-pressed, direct compression, the active BLIS K12™ probiotic remains alive, active and stable. No heat or moisture is used in the manufacture of BLIS K12™ gum.
- No Sugar or Artificial Sweeteners – Sweetened with Xylitol
Xylitol is a plant-based natural sweetener that is safe for diabetics and has been shown to prevent tooth decay and gun disease. Hundreds of published studies found xylitol promotes oral health.

About Professor John Tagg’s Probiotic Discovery
After years of research, Professor John Tagg, a scientist in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at the University of Otago in New Zealand discovered BLIS K12™ a probiotic that resides in the mouth and protects against infections in the throat, mouth, nose and ears. His discovery has led to the creation of CulturedCare™ Probiotic Gum with BLIS K12™.

The word pro-biotic literally means “for life.” Probiotics are friendly, health-promoting bacteria that live virtually everywhere. They live in our soil, air, water and food. They even live in and on us, “colonizing” in various parts of the body including the mouth and intestinal tract. Restoring and keeping a healthy balance of friendly probiotic bacteria supports our natural immunity and resistance to disease-causing (pathogenic) bacteria. Probiotic supplements like lactobacillus acidophilus and bifidus have been growing in popularity for promoting gut and digestive health.
About Oral Probiotics
There are many kinds of probiotics, each with their own specific place of origin and job to do. Oral probiotics are the friendly bacteria that live in a healthy mouth. Oral probiotics prevent the overgrowth of unfriendly bacteria and act as our first line of defense against infections that enter through the mouth . Various factors, including the use of antibiotics and medicated mouthwash can reduce or destroy important oral probiotics.
Backed by Science
Based on more than 30 years of research by Professor John Tagg at the Department of Immunology and Microbiology, CulturedCare™ Probiotic Gum with BLIS K12™ contains 20 mg and 500 million active bacteria at manufacturing. This is the exact amount of BLIS K12™ recommended by Professor Tagg and his research.
Oral Probiotic Bacteria
The mouth is home to billions of bacteria – both good and bad. BLIS K12™ is good oral probiotic bacteria that protects against infections where they most often enter the body – through the oral cavity (mouth).
Good for ear, nose and throat health
CulturedCare™ Probiotic Gum with BLIS K12™ promotes ear, nose and throat health. Professor Tagg’s research has shown BLIS K12™ to especially protect against infections that cause sore throats, earache, upper respiratory distress.
Chewing Gum Form
Because BLIS K12™ is an oral-cavity probiotic, it needs to be delivered in a format that has prolonged contact with the mouth, making a chewing gum the perfect delivery system.
