Garden of Life's Primal Defense is the only probiotic formula that contains a unique whole food blend with Homeostatic Soil Organisms (HSO). The HSOs in Primal Defense are important probiotics you would get in abundance if your food came from soil untouched by pesticides, herbicides and other widely used chemicals. To replenish the valuable probiotics our pasteurized, irradiated and disinfected food no longer provides, Primal Defense® includes 12 species of hardy beneficial microorganisms in the form of the HSO Probiotic Blend. Let the unique HSOs in Primal Defence take you to a new level of total health.

What are probiotics and why do I need them?

Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that, when ingested, help support healthy microbial balance in the gut.* Healthy human intestines contain billions of microorganisms both good and potentially harmful. The good bacteria in the intestines are considered an integral part of normal immune system support.

Probiotics are important because they can synthesize certain vitamins and short-chain fatty acids to support a healthy intestinal lining and bolster immunity. * When your intestinal lining is occupied by healthy beneficial flora, it leaves unwelcome microorganisms deprived of both space and nutrients.

Healthy people usually have a ratio of approximately 85% good and 15% potentially harmful organisms in the intestinal tract. In some cases, even those who appear to be well might have an unfavorable ratio as a result of daily exposure to environmental toxins and a modern lifestyle. For example, taking antibiotics and drinking chlorinated water, may often change the optimal microbial balance essential for good health.

Garden of Life believes that probiotics are their most beneficial when they are not separated from their food source. The probiotics in Primal Defense are cultured with whole foods and then left intact. Many probiotic companies separate the probiotics from their food source. This is why so many probiotics need to be kept refrigerated. Once stripped of their food source, probiotics need to be kept refrigerated in order to remain viable. But what happens when these probiotics are introduced to the acidic environment of the stomach that is at 98.6 degrees? For this reason, Garden of Life believes the probiotic food source is as important to the delivery of the benefits of probiotics as the probiotics themselves.

A comparison of Garden of Life's Primal Defense vs. Isolated Probiotics

Isolated Probiotics
Contains whole foods Y N
Contains fermented ingredients Y N
Contains HSO's Y N
Contains mineral based prebiotic Y N
Contains multiple strains of beneficial probiotics and their food sources Y N
Needs to be refigerated N Y

What are HSOs and where do they come from?

Large scale use of pesticides, herbicides and other chemicals has changed the bacterial balance in the soil. In order to obtain the benefits we historically obtained from consuming foods cultivated in healthy soil, Garden of Life developed Primal Defense, a Homeostatic Soil Organism Probiotic Blend utilizing 12 species of beneficial microorganisms.

What can occur if I don’t have enough beneficial bacteria?

A lack of beneficial bacteria in your diet can result in an unbalanced internal environment and a lack of support for your normal immune system function. *

What is the difference between Garden of Life's Primal Defense and other probiotics?

Primal Defense is the only probiotic containing 12 species of hardy beneficial microorganisms in the form of the HSO Probiotic Blend. The ability of the probiotics in Primal Defense to support the normal healthy flora balance in the gut is not based solely on CFU count, but also on their ability to withstand harsh conditions in the digestive tract such as stomach and bile acids. Primal Defense also contains naturally occurring substances that function as prebiotics.

If I’m healthy, how can I benefit from taking Primal Defense?

Total health begins in the gut, so an optimized digestive tract has a plethora of health benefits. Primal Defense contains probiotics that support healthy gut flora balance, promote regular bowel function, and support a normal immune system - all of which are necessary to support overall health. *

Additionally, the probiotics in Primal Defense maximize the benefits of a healthy diet by supporting normal absorption and assimilation of nutrients in the gut. *

What probiotic species does Primal Defense contain?

  • Lactobacillus plantarum Lactobacillus brevis
  • Bifidobacterium bifidum Lactobacillus salivarius
  • Bifidobacterium lactis Lactobacillus acidophilus
  • Lactobacillus rhamnosus Bacillus subtilis
  • Bifidobacterium breve Lactobacillus paracasei
