Part 2 – Probiotics For Your Mouth – John Tagg, Strep and the BLIS K12 Story

Professor John Tagg of Otago University (NZ) tells his story of studying 100 school age children for 6 years. Ten of these 100 children did not get a strep throat infection over the course of the study. Tagg and his team discovered that these 10 children had a special “friendly” probiotic bacteria (S. salivarius) colonized in their mouth that was protecting them against strep throat infection (Streptococcus pyogenes) by producing powerful infection-fighting molecules that John Tagg eventually named “BLIS K12.”

We’ll be featuring more video segments with leading probiotic researcher Professor John Tagg over the next few weeks.

When I first met Professor Tagg and heard his personal story about Strep
throat and his ultimate discovery of BLIS K12, a natural probiotic to
prevent it, I knew it was something that needed to be shared. Here is the
first video in a forthcoming series of short video interviews with Professor
Tagg, one of the world’s foremost Streptococcus researchers.
