Blis K12 Throat Guard Daily is an innovative product that introduces probiotics to the mouth and throat for improved health and resiliance of the upper respiratory tract.
This product comes as lozenges, which can be either chewed or dissolved on the tongue according to personal preference. Each lozenge contains a strain of Streptococcus salivarius, a naturally-occurring, beneficial bacteria found in the oral cavity of most people.
The K12 in this product's name refers to the particular strain of S. salivarius. Both children and adults who have high levels of S. salivarius K12 are very resistant to acquiring upper respiratory tract infections and, when they do come down with such infections, tend to have less severe symptoms and recover faster. This is because S. salivarius K12 produces Bacteriocin-Like-Inhibitory-Substances (BLIS), proteins that inhibit the growth of other, similar types of bacteria---such as those that cause strep throat.
In essence, treatment with Blis K12 Throat Guard Daily does for the mouth and throat what the more well-known probiotics, often found in yogurt and dietary supplements, do for the gut. Prevention truly is the best medicine and this product provides a natural, safe and lasting means to prevent many common upper respiratory tract infections.
Because S. salivarius is found in the mouth and throat of nearly all humans, Blis K12 Throat Guard Daily is safe for use while pregnant or breastfeeding and in all ages. The product is generally not recommended for use in patients under 3 years of age simply because the lozenges may present a choking hazard.
Getting the Most from Blis K12 Throat Guard Daily
As the name suggests, this product is intended to be used daily. In most cases one lozenge suffices to maintain optimal colonies:
Lozenges should be taken daily for a minimum of 2 weeks to ensure colonies are well-established. Continuing to take a daily lozenge ensures colonies remain at optimal levels; in many individuals populations begin to decline after several months without further supplementation.
During high-risk periods, such as when other family members, coworkers or schoolmates are starting to come down with winter ills and chills, daily dosage may be increased to 4 lozenges per day, taken 1 to 2 hours apart. This will help ensure that harmful bacteria do not overwhelm S. salivarius K12 colonies.
Warnings & Side Effects
There are no side effects associated with Blis K12 Throat Guard Daily.
Individuals who have compromised immune systems or who are taking medications that may suppress immune function should discuss use with a doctor before starting treatment.
