Boost Tooth and Gum Health, Improve Bad Breath –
And Support Ear, Nose and Throat Health Too
You likely know the many benefits of probiotic bacteria in the intestines - now you can get the benefit of probiotic bacteria in your mouth and throat areas too.
The TrueOC™ Quick Melt contains BLIS K12® and BLIS M18®, two clinically studied strains of the naturally occurring probiotic organism Streptococcus salivarius.
These oral probiotics were discovered by Professor John Tagg, a microbiologist at the University of Otaga in New Zealand.
Professor Tagg was curious why certain people aren’t as susceptible to oral health problems - such as cavities, bleeding gums, upper respiratory illness - as most of the population. He discovered the answer: about 2% of humans are able to naturally produce protective Streptococcus salivarius organisms in their mouth.
The rest of us need to supplement these beneficial bacteria - and now you can with the TrueOC™ Quick Melt - a natural peppermint flavored lozenge that dissolves in your mouth in about 90 seconds.
When taken regularly, these specific probiotic strains have been shown to support several aspects of tooth and gum health and protect against the overgrowth of bacteria that causes bad breath. BLIS® K12 and BLIS® M18 do this by colonizing in the mouth and throat.
In clinical studies, BLIS® K12 has been shown to stimulate the immune system to improve upper respiratory (ear, nose, throat) health and reduce bad breath - in children and adults.
BLIS® M18 works more directly on dental health - helping to reduce the overgrowth of bacteria that increases cavity risk, supporting reduced plaque formation and helping to maintain tooth enamel by neutralizing acid.
ACTIValoe® is included because recent studies have shown that in the oral cavity, aloe vera promotes gum health by helping to reduce dental plaque and soothing gums.
For best results, if you use an anti-microbial mouthwash, take the TrueOC™ Quick Melt at least three hours after rinsing with your mouthwash.
