The Digestive Health Connection
All organs and systems rely on the health of the digestive tract. Proper digestion is essential for the body to absorb and utilize the nutrients it needs. In addition, 75% of the cells necessary for the immune system to function effectively are connected to the gastrointestinal tract.
Probiotics: Critical for Good Health
Probiotics ("Pro"= Positive, "Biotic"= Life) are living microflora that play a critical role in maintaining good health. Present in many live foods but destroyed by heat processing, live probiotic cultures populate the intestinal tract where they play a positive role in digestive and immune health.
Broad Spectrum Protection
Primal Defense ULTRA is the ultimate broad-spectrum probiotic formula, made to provide 15 billion live cells¹ per daily amount and 13 species of beneficial cultures including soil-based probiotics called Homeostatic Soil Organisms (HSOs). Primal Defense ULTRA nourishes and supports healthy intestinal epithelium lining integrity, the front line for the body's defense system, and promotes healthy intestinal comfort and function.

I have tried many different probiotics to try to deal with my ulcerative colitis but this is the only one that has really helped. Before using this product I was advised that I should have my colon removed. I have now been taking it for almost 2 months and am now seeing positive results. Beware that this product is quite powerful - I had to work up slowly to 12 capsules/day and had a few hiccups along the way but now I am seeing the benefits.
I have been taking probiotics for many years now to combat systemic candidiasis. I was a little skeptical about this one when I saw the color of the capsules (brownish green) but it has been excellent at keeping a healthy balance in my system. I can definitely tell when I have missed a day or two. It has done more for me than the others I have tried.

We've been using this product for years and consider it the most important supplement we take. Helps improve digestion and seems to boost immunity. Love it.
watch the youtube videos

The sales rep in the youtube videos gave me the idea to take between 6-12/day, to detox and control candida. And it worked. But there was a lot of Herxheimer response. So, be careful. With other brands you may pass the probiotics immediately and see it in your stool. I've never had this experience with Primal Defense. I give it friends and they're hooked, too.

Good product. The L.plantarum is also said to work well as a starter culture for fermented vegetables. Just empty a couple of capsules into some warm water with a little honey and leave for 15 minutes, then add this to vegetables you're making.
Broad spectrum probiotic

My naturopath was impressed at how broad the range of probiotics were in this formula. It is however, weaker than I need right now as I am trying to heal from leaky gut syndrome. Once I am, he said it is a great maintenance product. So if you feel generally well, this is probably a great addition to your diet.

I liked this product and used it for about a year. I found it quite effective from what I had tried before from the health stores in Australia. It seemed to work a lot better. However I started to feel like I had to take 2-4 (usually 4) per day in order to get the effectiveness that it started with . I have since moved on to Culturelle however I am planning to find a product that is much higher quality. I don't really trust the packaging claims on either product as they state the amount of bacteria present at the time of production. They don't guarantee that this amount is alive at the time you ingest the pill. I have since researched and found that a lot, if not most of them die before even reaching your mouth. I am going to switch to fermenting a lot of foods and using a probiotic that has been tested to have a high bacteria count at ingestion when I can afford it.
