With just one piece of CulturedCare TM Probiotic Gum with BLIS K12 TM daily, we can populate our mouths with these infection-fighting probiotics that protect the throat, mouth, nose and ears.

About BLIS K12 – An advanced Oral Probiotic

BLIS K12 is a new, advanced probiotic discovered by Professor John Tagg from the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at the University of Otago in New Zealand. BLIS stands for Bacteriocin-Like-Inhibitory-Substance and is the naturally occurring component of certain strains of micro-organisms (probiotics) which control undesirable and disease-causing bacteria. BLIS K12 is the special BLIS probiotic strain derived from the friendly bacteria Streptococcus salivarius. It has been shown to safely control the bacteria that frequently cause strep throat, earache, upper respiratory infections, sinus infections and halitosis (bad breath).

5 Good Reasons to Chew CulturedCare™ Probiotic Gum with BLIS K12™

  • Provides Infection Protection

Contains a therapeutic dose of BLIS K12, oral probiotic bacteria that fight sore throats, earaches and upper respiratory infections.

  • Stops Bad Breath

Halitosis (bad breath) is often caused by unfriendly bacteria “off-gassing” in the mouth. CulturedCare Probiotic Gum with BLIS K12 stops the growth of these bacteria and recolonizes the mouth and oral cavity with friendly probiotic bacteria.

  • Provides Optimal Probiotic Distribution

Chewing CulturedCare Probiotic Gum with BLIS K12 increases the probiotic bacteria release and activity time in the mouth, as compared to a chewable tablet for example, and provides more opportunity for colonization of the K12 bacteria.

  • Cold-Pressed Technology

CulturedCare Probiotic Gum with BLIS K12 is made with a superior gum-making technology. Through cold-pressed, direct compression, the active BLIS K12 probiotic remains alive, active and stable. No heat or moisture is used in the manufacture of BLIS K12 gum.

  • No Sugar or Artificial Sweeteners – Sweetened with Xylitol

Xylitol is a plant-based natural sweetener that is safe for diabetics and has been shown to prevent tooth decay and gun disease. Hundreds of published studies found xylitol promotes oral health.

Probiotics for Your Mouth

About Probiotics

The word pro-biotic literally means “for life.” Probiotics are friendly, health-promoting bacteria that live virtually everywhere. They live in our soil, air, water and food. They even live in and on us, “colonizing” in various parts of the body including the mouth and intestinal tract. Restoring and keeping a healthy balance of friendly probiotic bacteria supports our natural immunity and resistance to disease-causing (pathogenic) bacteria. Probiotic supplements like lactobacillus acidophilus and bifidus have been growing in popularity for promoting gut and digestive health.

About Oral Probiotics

There are many kinds of probiotics, each with their own specific place of origin and job to do. Oral probiotics are the friendly bacteria that live in a healthy mouth. Oral probiotics prevent the overgrowth of unfriendly bacteria and act as our first line of defense against infections that enter through the mouth . Various factors, including the use of antibiotics and medicated mouthwash can reduce or destroy important oral probiotics.

  • Backed by Science

Based on more than 30 years of research by Professor John Tagg at the Department of Immunology and Microbiology, CulturedCare Probiotic Gum with BLIS K12 contains 20 mg and 500 million active bacteria at manufacturing. This is the exact amount of BLIS K12 recommended by Professor Tagg and his research.

  • Oral Probiotic Bacteria

The mouth is home to billions of bacteria – both good and bad. BLIS K12 is good oral probiotic bacteria that protects against infections where they most often enter the body – through the oral cavity (mouth).

  • Good for ear, nose and throat health

CulturedCare Probiotic Gum with BLIS K12 promotes ear, nose and throat health. Professor Tagg’s research has shown BLIS K12 to especially protect against infections that cause sore throats, earache, upper respiratory distress.

  • Chewing Gum Form

Because BLIS K12 is an oral-cavity probiotic, it needs to be delivered in a format that has prolonged contact with the mouth, making a chewing gum the perfect delivery system.

FEATURED PRODUCT: Marseille’s Remedy Thieves’ Oil & Balm: Ancient Remedy for Modern Times

marseilles-remedy-product-photo-6The Folklore

In 1413, as the bubonic plague decimated France, thieves were arrested for robbing dead and dying plague victims, a crime punishable by burning alive.  The judge offered them leniency for their terrible crimes if they would share the secret which enabled them to expose themselves to the plague without contracting it.  The thieves explained that they were perfume makers and spice merchants who were unemployed due to the closure of France’s sea ports.  They had prepared a special herbal infusion which they applied to their hands, ears, feet, masks, and temples and this protected them from infection.  As promised, the judge did not burn the men alive…He hanged them instead.  Soon after, plague doctors began to wear beak-like masks stuffed with absorbent material soaked in the Thieves’ blend to protect them from disease.

The Thieves’ original blend, containing vinegar and garlic, was known primarily as Vinaigre de Marseille. This formula was marketed by medical suppliers as the first line of defence for hundreds of years, and has been a staple of pestilent prevention in every plague since its formulation. The rise of the modern pharmacopeia saw this staple placed in the pages of forgotten history. Marseille’s Remedy is the most traditional concentrated form of this time- honoured recipe. Its applications are numerous, as a treatment for all of life’s hygienic needs.

A Powerful, Versatile Remedy

Marseille’s Remedy is an all-natural blend of five pure, high-grade, therapeutic essential oils used to improve wellness, health, and vitality. It consists of the organic, steam-distilled oils of Cinnamon, Clove, Eucalyptus and Rosemary, plus the true cold-pressed oil of Lemon. These are sourced from Sri Lanka (the first two), Australia, France and Italy, respectively. This authentic blend naturally balances, safeguards, and synergizes (or strengthens) the healing properties of various essential oil constituents.

It can be mixed with any carrier oil for topical use, vinegar or soap for cleaning, baking soda for teeth, or used directly in a diffuser to purify air.

Its applications and usages are many, and when applied correctly, Marseille’s Remedy is a very effective antifungal, antibacterial, and antiviral treatment.

We have received many happy testimonials from customers, including in successfully treating acne, boils, warts, cold sores, and colds/coughs amongst their families, to refreshing indoor air quality, eliminating their pet’s fleas, or wiping out surface molds, among others.

Suggested Uses:

  • Clears phlegm and congested airways
  • Relieves inflammation due to sprain/strain/rheumatoid arthritis
  • Antispasmodic for symptomatic relief of digestive discomfort
  • Eliminates airborne pathogens and foul odours
  • Antifungal: Feet, hands, scalp, and mold remediation
  • Use as hand sanitizer or all-purpose cleaner
  • Can aid in the treatment and prevention of topical infectious ailments
  • Deters mites, lice, worms, fleas, and mosquitoes

Applications:

  • Topical: Combine 2 drops of Marseilles Remedy with 40 drops of carrier oil, and massage into skin, muscles, or joints.
  • Direct Inhalation: For cough and cold, apply 2 to 6 drops undiluted product to a handkerchief/tissue and inhale. Alternatively, diffuse in boiling water or in an essential oil diffuser.
  • Household: Mix with soapy water, or diluted vinegar, to clean, and sanitize. Use undiluted to remediate mold around the house, or deter pests.

 

Thieves’ Balm:

The Balm is like having a popular muscle rub product combined with the favorite leading chest rub, merged into one effective and all-natural ointment. It contains over 50% of the Marseille’s Thieves’ Oil blend, plus some grapeseed oil and beeswax for pleasant texture, plus a warming natural camphor, and a soothing, deeply penetrating natural menthol (peppermint oil compound).

The balm is effective for many of the aforementioned uses, but also can “stick” longer to the skin, so is better suited for continual topical treatments, such as in respiratory disorders, or for joint or muscle aches or injury areas.

Some parents have reported how quickly it acted as an expectorant to help expel their child’s chest cold, and many clients have had success treating symptoms of back or other body pain. Recurrent daily use can help the body modulate the inflammatory response, and resolve conditions more easily.

Since Marseille’s Remedy is a concentrated, undiluted pure blend, use responsibly. Avoid contact with eyes, membranes, or other sensitive body areas. Read label before using.

 

Have a Cheerful and Healthy Autumn and Winter!
