After developing rheumatic fever as a child, I know from personal experience the importance of a healthy bacterial balance.
I have spent all of my working life as a microbiologist. With the help of a team of very talented and hard working people at The University of Otago, I discovered and developed a range of probiotics from beneficial bacteria called Streptococcus salivarius. These bacteria are found to occur naturally in the healthy throats of adults and children however, only around 2% of the population have sufficiently high levels of the most active of these bacteria.
You can learn more about our research here but for now let’s concentrate on how good bugs like Blis K12 may play a role in the management of healthy throat and mouth bacterial balance.
