  • [1.2
    - #Streptococcus salivarius (S. salivarius), a bacterial species which populates the mouth and gut in early neonatal developmentand which is commonly found in the respiratory tract, may have a beneficial influence on the ear microbiome. - The K12 strain of S. salivarius has specifically been recognized as a potential #Probiotic for treating #Otitis Media, due to the ability of this strain to target and suppress pathogenic bacteria in the ear.
