Probiotic Gum Licensed by Health Canada to Fight Bad Breath

By on May 15, 2014

CulturedCareTM Probiotic Gum with BLIS K12TM is Canada’s first and only probiotic gum recognized and licensed by Health Canada to fight bad breath and improve oral health. 

Prairie Naturals Health Products, a private, family-owned Canadian company headquartered near Vancouver, is the sole brand owner of the newly licensed Probiotic Gum.

“To be the first Probiotic Gum in Canada approved for licensing by Health Canada is an honour,” announced Deborah Callbreath, General Manager of Prairie Naturals. “Our Probiotic Gum is based on decades of scientific research. We chose to use chewing gum as the revolutionary delivery system for this unique oral probiotic to ensure the most effective distribution in the mouth.”

CulturedCareTM Probiotic Gum with BLIS K12TM is based upon the research of Professor John Tagg, a renowned researcher in the field of probiotics and former Professor of Immunology and Microbiology at the University of Otago in New Zealand.  Professor Tagg has published more than 50 articles pertaining to his BLIS probiotic research in scientific journals including the Lancet.  BLIS stands for Bacteriocin-Like-Inhibitory-Substance.

“Infection protection starts in the mouth,” states Professor Tagg. “There are many strains of probiotics for the intestinal tract, but they do not give protection where it is needed most – in the mouth. BLIS K12 TM is an oral probiotic. It provides the mouth with the probiotic protection and resistance it needs to fight the bacteria that cause bad breath.”

CulturedCareTM Probiotic Gum with BLIS K12TM was developed in cooperation with Professor Tagg and is made exclusively in Canada using proprietary technology that ensures the live bacteria remain active and effective.

CulturedCareTM Probiotic Gum with BLIS K12TM is sold in Natural Health Stores across Canada. To learn more about CulturedCareTM Probiotic Gum with BLIS K12TM visit: www.culturedcare.com
