  • Whole Food Dietary Supplement

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.

Suggested Use

Adults take 1 scoop (1/3 teaspoon) 3 times per day with 8 ounces of water or juice. Best taken on an empty stomach. Begin with 1 scoop per day and gradually increase to suggested amount. Scoop included.

Other Ingredients

Silicon Dioxide (anti-caking), bacterial proteases, probiotic cultures.

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

Contains no artificial colors or preservatives. Vegetarian. Gluten Free.

This product is made with natural ingredients: therefore color and taste may vary from lot to lot.

Definitely better digestion

Posted by Reviewer1019614 on Feb 28, 2017

I like this product because it contains a little "grit". Humans evolved eating all sorts of things raw, right from the earth and our gut is still geared toward processing all manner of fiber. In the month I have used Primal Defense, I have noticed a big improvement in my formerly "unpredictable" tummy issues.

One of the most effective "probiotic" supplements in the world.

Posted by 5639410007776856587 on Sep 18, 2016

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.

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.
