The aim of this study is to measure the amount of VSC (Volatile Sulphur Compounds) and demonstrate the efficacy of probiotic therapy with follow-up at 7 and 14 days.
At the end of the treatment, about 91% of patients did not present halitosis. Therefore results were achieved with a direct action on the intestine, not at an oral level.
This study proves that, besides the rebalancing effect of probiotics in dysbiosis, there are many immunological implications on GALT (Gut Associated Lymphoid Tissue).
Results show that the administration of K-B0399 enclosed in capsules has been proven effective in halitosis by acting at the intestinal microbiome level.
