PROTEC Probotic Oral Care
PROTEC contains the world’s first probiotic treatment specifically for throat and mouth, Streptococcus salivarius K12 (BLIS K12™) and Streptococcus salivarius M18 (BLIS M18™). The probiotics were initially isolated in New Zealand by Dr John Tagg, Professor Emeritus of Microbiology at University of Otago. Today they are supported by more than 36 years of research and numerous clinical trials.
Professor Tagg observed that some school children were much less susceptible to pharyngitis, tonsilitis and other oral infection. He found that variation in natural oral bacteria levels was a strong co-relating factor.
Blis K12 and M18 produce “bacteriocin like inhibiting substances” (giving the anagram BLIS) which inhibit the growth of other more bacteria and viruses. Blis beneficial bacteria grow in the mouth to assist ongoing oral and dental health. They are also proven effective against Middle Ear infections.
DENTALPROTEC™ helps protect against tooth decay and gum disease, reducing dental plaque.
