Ear, Nose & Throat Defense contains S. salivarius K12, a probiotic  supports your upper respiratory system—helping to keep your ears, nose, and throat healthy.
S. salivarius K12 generates two protective proteins—Salivaricin A and Salivarcin B—which help support immune health. Researchers call these proteins bacteriocin-like-inhibitory substances (BLIS for short)—which is a good name, because to your upper respiratory tract they are pure “bliss!”
These proteins inhibit the growth of unwanted bacteria, by launching a powerful one-two punch. The Salivaricin A proteins rapidly kill unwanted bacteria by “punching holes” in the unwanted bacteria. Meanwhile, the Salivaricin B proteins kill unwanted bacteria, preventing them from forming a cell wall—and without a cell wall, the bad bacteria can’t exist.
The studies on S. salivarius K12 are impressive.  Research shows it can promote your immune health within just 24 hours!*
Plus, Ear, Nose & Throat Defense helps to keep your teeth and gums healthy and gets to the root cause of bad breath.

 Scientific Support

  • In a study of 9 children, those taking oral S. salivarius K12 for 6 months exhibited better ear health.1
  • A small study of 5 subjects found that within 24 hours of taking S. salivarius K12, immune markers increased.2 Ingestion of the strain has been found to increase levels of interferon gamma in saliva, which promotes a healthy immune system.
  • Individuals suffering from bad breath have fewer strains of S. salivarius and elevated levels of S. pyogenes. Research found that using S. salivarius K12 improved breath scores.3
  • In a trial of 23 subjects with bad breath, 85% of those taking 200-400 million CFU daily of S. salivarius K12 for two weeks, compared to 30% of those taking placebo, had a significant reduction in volatile sulphur compounds, foul-smelling chemicals that are the cause of bad breath.4
