Primal Defense is a natural blend of 12 species of probiotics and Homeostatic Soil Organisms (HSOs), utilizing the Poten-Zyme process to deliver three billion live cells per day within a whole food matrix. The HSO probiotic blend in Primal Defense helps support normal gastrointestinal balance of good and potentially harmful bacteria to help maintain a balanced, healthy internal environment and maximizes the benefits of a healthy diet by supporting normal absorption and assimilation of nutrients in the gut.

The culture medium for probiotics is dairy; production of enzymes utilizes wheat, dairy and soy. Culture mediums are generally consumed during the fermentation process.

Primal Defense is the Best Defense!

Posted by 5231496214783765762 on Feb 26, 2016

I've been using this product to help with both a leaky gut and brain. It seems to be working well. It has L. Rhamnosus, which has been found to help with weight loss, and B. Longum, which helps the brain to balance itself. I even give a tad bit to both of my cats. I highly recommend this product and will keep using it.

Finally, a probiotic that works

Posted by Umbridge on Jun 03, 2014

I have IBS, and I have FODMAP intolerance. I have never found a probiotic that works for me, and the ones I have tried generally have no effect or make me bloated and constipated. I have had no problems whatsoever with this stuff, and ever since I have been taking it, the C in my IBS-C has vanished. If you have tried other probiotics without much success, I highly recommend giving this a shot. It's more akin to the probiotics we get from food, but you can get it in a more concentrated dose. Some people find they need to start with a low dose and work their way up, but I found I was fine with the full dose from the start.

has some benefits but not ideal for my body...

Posted by PracticalReviews on Oct 26, 2013

its really strange how probiotic products are sooooo different from each other,some can do miracles to my body,some do nothing & some feels wrong to me. this is a great company and i am sure this product will fit some people but i don't really felt any improvement from this product and it felt like is drains lots of essential fluid from my body,i will give it a second chance though and will update if there is any change in mind in the near future...you are welcome to rate & read my other reviews
