I bought this product for my cat with Inflammatory Bowel Disease. Since using this product,there has been a drastic change in her health. She isn't on conventional meds, just this and a few supplments. Before the Primal Defense I thought there was a chance we would lose her, not anymore. I also have a litter of kittens. 1 kitten became extremely ill, and I used the Primal Defense on the whole litter. The ill kitten recovered wonderfully, and the other kittens didn't get sick. They now take it daily. As do all of my cats. I also am able to give it to my kids, and husband, and our helath is improving! I highly recommend this product for humans and animals. I also loved how quickly iherb got it to me! Thanks for the excellent product and service.
This product used to be for children, but now the taste is very different and the children do not like it any more. Furthermore, I notice, an additional line in the product description that it is not intended for children are added. I wonder if it is not for children, why are they in powder form. There should be more information regarding the change.
One of the most effective "probiotic" supplements in the world.

I feel this is one of the most effective "probiotic" supplements in the world (and even among the Garden of Life line) because of two simple factors: #1, how it makes myself and others feel [better], and #2: it was the original formula used by Dr. Jordan Rubin during his own healing (read "Patient Heal Thyself" and "The Maker's Diet"). I believe there is an entire chapter about "the black powder" (which subsequently became the "Primal Defense" product). Also, I prefer the powder (in pure water) and the original formula over the "Ultra" forms. Best regards, -Bryan.
read that soil based were better. not impressed

was using pb8 to control thrush. and on switching to this formula had a recurrence nearly immediately. also no good for kids as doesn't dissolve and looks like soil.
Primal Defense is the Best Defense!

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.

Price seems a little high for amount.
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.
