KForce Oral Guard with BLIS M18 is new and different
KForce Oral Guard with BLIS M18 is a naturally occurring strain that is especially potent at inhibiting S. mutans, the oral bacteria widely accepted to be a main cause of dental caries and tooth decay. Not all strains of S. salivarius act equally to inhibit oral and dental pathogens. Only S.salivarius M18 and K12 can do this.
BLIS M18 with Punch
KForce Oral Guard with BLIS M18 goes above and beyond regular probiotic activity because it produces anti-microbial proteins called BLIS (Bacteriocin-Like Inhibitory Substances). Most other probiotics work by competing with bacteria for space and nutrients in the mouth and in this way help prevent over-growth of bad bacteria. KForce Oral Guard with BLIS M18 is different. Not only does it compete for space and nutrients but it also produces three potent antibacterial BLIS molecules; Salivaricin A, Salivaricin 9, Salivaricin X
A Unique Enzyme
KForce Oral Guard with BLIS M18 has unique enzyme producing abilities that allow it to break up dental plaque and neutralize acid that can be harmful to teeth and gums. This is a unique attribute of BLIS M18 and not found in any
other oral probiotics. As a result of its multi- functional activity, taking daily doses of KForce Oral Guard with BLIS M18 can protect teeth from bacteria known to cause tooth decay, protect teeth from acid erosion caused by high acid foods, and help break up dental plaque.
Supported by Proprietary Science
KForce Oral Guard with BLIS M18 protects from dental pathogens Streptococcus mutan is considered a leading causative agent of tooth decay. In vitro studies have shown BLIS M18 is a potent inhibitor of this bacteria. Organisms responsible for dental plaque like S. mutans produce lactic acid from dietary carbohydrate. Lactic acid degrades tooth enamel and dentine (a major component of teeth) which can lead to cavities and eventually tooth loss. Research has shown that KForce Oral Guard with BLIS M18 produces an enzyme called urease which neutralizes acid in the oral cavity.
KForce Oral Guard with BLIS M18 also breaks up dental plaque. While Streptococcus mutans are able to produce acid they also produce extracellular polysaccharides which contributes to the plaque biofilm or the sticky structure which allows the problematic bacteria to be in close association with dental tissue. Limited numbers of S. salivarius strains, including M18, produce an enzyme called dextranase, which can help break up
the plaque biofilm caused by S. mutans.
