BLIS Probiotics Treat Bad Breath with an Army of Healthy Bacteria

Friday, December 2nd, 2011

If you’ve been wondering about the future of bad breath treatment, then look no further than TheraBreath’s BLIS Probiotics. These cutting-edge halitosis
therapies do what no other breath freshener can, which is to naturally limit your mouth’s ability to produce bad breath.

How do they do it? The key is a pair of carefully cultivated microbial strains that  gradually force odor-causing bacteria out of your mouth. This makes our probiotics the next generation in halitosis-fighting technology.

Here’s how it works.

Your mouth is brimming with bacteria, many of which are essentially harmless. According to the latest scientific estimates, you have more than 600 different species of microorganisms in your mouth, accounting for billions of individual bacteria.

A few of these species are real stinkers. Called anaerobic bacteria, they thrive in a
relatively dry environment. When your mouth gets parched, these microbes go to
town on the food particles on your tongue and between your teeth. They emit the
odor molecules that give halitosis its bad smell, and they also contribute to cavities and gum disease.

Here’s where BLIS Probiotics come in handy. Our probiotics products contain two healthy strains of bacteria, called Streptococcus salivarius M12 and K18. These species do two things that naturally limit your bad breath.

Bad Breath Treatments: A Quick Review

Wednesday, October 19th, 2011

There is a wealth of bad breath treatments available on the market, some effective and others less-than-productive. With so many routes to choose on the road to good oral
well-being, it is easy to get lost. Fortunately, we at TheraBreath are always willing to lay out a straightforward set of instructions for becoming dentally health and halitosis-free.

In the name of simplicity, here is a quick review of effective bad breath treatments.

- Brush your teeth. Sure, it may come as a given that you should try to keep your pearly whites clean, but many people take their dental health for granted. The same bacteria that contribute to tooth decay and cavities also emit many of the odor molecules associated with bad breath. By  brushing, you can kill two birds with one stone.

- Floss. The tartar that gets stuck between your teeth gives off a foul smell, especially if left to fester for months or even years. Using a fine strand of waxed string or dental tape can lift this gunk out from its hiding places. Don’t forget to floss all the way down under your gums!

- Scrape your tongue. It may sound disgusting, but the revulsion you feel reflects poorly on the state of your tongue, not on the scraper itself. Besides being an integral part of your digestive system, your tongue is home to billions of halitosis-causing microbes. It also carries several grams of dead cells and decaying proteins at any one time. Unless you’re comfortable treating your tongue like an ongoing bacteriological experiment, consider investing in a specialty tongue scraper.

Aktiv K12 Probiotics Decimate Bacteria that Cause Bad Breath

Monday, October 3rd, 2011

Use an Aktiv K12 probiotics kit, and you may
notice that you gradually experience less bad breath over the ensuing weeks. This probiotic regimen can, in conjunction with a specialty toothpaste and tongue scraper, dramatically reduce oral odor. But while brushing and  scraping are well-known ways to hamper halitosis, probiotics might need a little
explanation.

The era of probiotics began at the end of the 1800s, when a Russian scientist named Elie Mechnikov theorized that harmful gut bacteria reduce a person’s life span by speeding up the aging process. While he was off the mark, Mechnikov could hardly be faulted for lack of trying.

As an experiment, he drank curdled milk every day in order to modify the bacterial ecosystem in his own gut and, with luck, live longer. Mechnikov even wrote a tract on the subject, published in 1906 with the unappetizing title “Scientifically Soured Milk: Its Influence in Arresting Intestinal Putrefaction.”

The experiment ultimately failed. The Russian innovator died of heart failure at the un-Methuselah-like age of 71, though with a Nobel Prize to his name (for describing the process by which white blood cells “eat” bacteria). Still, Mechnikov had founded the study of probiotics.

Vitamin Supplements May Help with Bad Breath

Monday, April 4th, 2011

The University of California, San Diego’s Healthwise Knowlegebase states that there are some vitamins and minerals that can treat or help prevent causes of bad breath. However, taking these supplements won’t work immediately– use TheraBreath products to give you instantly fresh breath.

Aside from bad breath that originates in the stomach or lungs, most cases of halitosis come from dry mouth, plaque, gum disease or white tongue.

According to UCSD’s free database, there are a number of supplements that help better your breath, along with general health and wellness benefits. Vitamin C helps the body fight gingivitis – the first stage of gum disease. Common signs of gingivitis are gums that bleed easily and appear swollen. Gingivitis is a very common cause of bad breath. If you are suffering from gingivitis, try TheraBreath’s PerioTherapy line, it is proven to treat gingivitis and give you fresh breath.

Vitamin E, vitamin b9, zinc and selenium will help the mouth combat periodontitis – the second stage of gum disease. Periodontitis can lead to eventual tooth loss, not to mention foul breath. TheraBreath’s PerioTherapy can stop gum disease. PerioO2, a medical-grade oxygenating compound found only in PerioTherapy attacks the bacteria which create plaque, destroys the sulfur toxins they produce, and provides oxygen ions to help restore optimal tissue health. Tea tree oil and zinc gluconate neutralize micro-organisms and aloe vera stops bleeding to prevent these germs from invading.

If you aren’t already, consider taking daily supplements that contain these vitamins and minerals, or find a good multivitamin. We also suggest trying TheraBreath’s line of Probiotics – they can help with your breath from the inside out along with the health of your throat, mouth and overall well-being.
