LOVE LOVE LOVE this product

Posted by 5678151115749275905 on Aug 27, 2016

I have suffered IBS for as long as i can remember. I have tried many probiotics over the years, I have to say the Primal Defense is definitely the best one i have ever had. My IBS has definitely settled, I no longer have to rely on having magnesium to keep me "regular" - truly an amazing product, it really works, AND it has even helped my PMS mood swings have literally gone - (peri menopausal) Would definitely recommend this product, will not be buying anything else!

Only 1 Billion CFU

Posted by Reviewer2487237 on Aug 24, 2016

This product contains only 1 billion CFU. It says nowhere on the packaging how many billion CFU it contains, I had to email the company. If you want a 5 billion CFU pill from this company look for the "ultra" version of this product.

My favourite probiotic

Posted by NaturopathGabby on Jun 24, 2016

I've tried a few different types of probiotics, but I love the value of these. They fill the tub substantially so you aren't paying mostly for air like you would most of the time. A key thing to note is that the strains here are soil-based, which is preferable over something grown in a petri dish. I don't have any chronic gastrointestinal issues (or other health concerns for that matter) so I'm not going to say "this product changed my life" because it hasn't. It is simply my probiotic of choice for maintenance of my microbiome and I recommend you give it a go.
