Please do not fall for that scam. Dr. Katz purchases Streptococcus K12 from a New Zealand company at a cheap price and highly inflates it.
If you want to test this product out, please order the same product here:
Every dose of Aktiv-K12 contains 100 million cells of streptococcus K12. In a mouthwash form, you're going to spit out at least 3/4ths of it, meaning only 25 million cells of K12 will remain in your mouth. Every lozenge from the pharmacy from the link above contains 100 million cells of Streptococcus K12. Because you let it dissolve in your mouth, most of it remains in your mouth. You could break up one lozenge into 4 pieces and one of those pieces will have the same potency as one dose of Aktiv-K12.
Here is the effective doseage pricing:
One dose of Aktiv-K12: $2
One dose (1/4th lozenge) of BLIS-k12: $0.17
You cannot pass bad breath from person to person. Maybe you passed on some type of fungal infection, but the bad breath bacteria cannot be passed on to cause bad breath because bacterial colonization requires specific receptors on the surfces of our mouths. If your ex has those receptors, he/she would have already developed bad breath long ago. YOu can give the bad breath bacteria to your ex, but it won't do anything because it wouldn't be able to colonize in his/her mouth.
Similarly, you cant cure your bad breath by adding good breath bacteria. Our mouths don't already contain a proliferation of good breath bacteria because we lack certain mucosal receptors for those bacteria to adhere to.
The K12 brands are a scam, through and through. It's only viable application is the replavcement of throat flora after Antibiotic
treatment in ONLY those who already harbored Streptococcus Salivarius K12 to begin with. This is what the product was created for, but BLIS overextended the application of their product to tap into a highly profitable market.
