    Garden of Life - Primal Defense HSO Probiotic Formula - 180 Vegetarian Caplet(s)

    Garden of Life Primal Defense HSO Probiotic Formula is a natural blend of 12 species of probiotics and Homeostatic Soil Organisms (HSOs), utilizing the Poten-Zyme process and delivered within a whole food matrix. The HSO probiotic blend in Garden of Life Primal Defense HSO Probiotic Formula 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.

    Garden of Life Primal Defense HSO Probiotic Formula Highlights:

    • The leading whole food probiotic containing Homeostatic Soil Organisms (HSOs).
    • The HSO Probiotic Blend in Primal Defense helps support the normal gastrointestinal balance of good and potentially harmful bacteria to help maintain a balanced, healthy internal environment.
    • Contains probiotics that promote regular bowel function and help maintain an already healthy immune system - both of which are beneficial to overall health.
    • Maximizes the benefits of a healthy diet by supporting normal absorption and assimilation of nutrients in the gut.
    • Unlike other probiotics, the key probiotics in Primal Defense can thrive in the toughest digestive environments and are undeterred by stomach and bile acids.
    • Select ingredients in Primal Defense are produced through the Garden of Life proprietary Poten-Zyme fermentation process to make nutrients more available to the body.
    • Primal Defense comes in two easy-to-use forms: Powder and Caplets.

    Products for Life

    Combining the Best of Nature and Science
    The team at Garden of Life has set the industry standard with regard to digestive support supplements. These products were designed to support the gastrointestinal tract in its role of digestion and assimilation.

    While each of the Garden of Life digestive products can stand alone, they are designed to be used together. A properly tuned gastrointestinal tract is your key to good health. If your gastrointestinal tract is "out of tune" then you owe it to yourself to see if the Garden of Life Digestive Health Line can assist you on your journey to optimal health.

    Dr. Joseph Brasco, Medical Advisor to Garden of Life, Board Certified in Gastroenterology, Board Certified in Internal Medicine, Co-author of "Restoring Your Digestive Health": "A healthy gastrointestinal tract is your gateway to overall health and vitality. Proper diet and a prudent lifestyle are foundational in achieving these goals. While nothing can replace diet and lifestyle there are a group of supplements that can support digestive health. These supplements become especially important for those times when optimal diet and lifestyle are just not possible."

    Garden of Life Primal Defense HSO Probiotic Formula FAQ's

    What are probiotics and why do I need them?
    Probiotics are beneficial microflora that play a critical role in maintaining good health. Healthy human intestines contain billions of both good and potentially harmful microorganisms. The good bacteria in the intestines are considered to be 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 deprives unwelcome microorganisms of both space and nutrients.

    Healthy people usually have a ratio of approximately 85% good to 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 or drinking chlorinated water may change the optimal microbial balance essential for good health.

    Garden of Life believes that probiotics are most beneficial when they are not separated from their food source. Primal Defense, unlike isolated probiotic products, contains fermented whole foods and multiple strains of beneficial probiotics in the form of the Homeostatic Soil Organism Probiotic Blend.

    What are HSOs and where do they come from?
    Large scale use of pesticides, herbicides and other chemicals has changed the bacterial balance of the soil. In order to obtain the benefits we historically acquired from consuming foods cultivated in healthy soil, Garden of Life developed 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 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 acid and bile. 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 maintain a normal immune system - all of which are necessary to support overall health.

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

    Bifidobacterium bifidum Lactobacillus paracasei

      I have a lot of health problems along with poor digestion and gastric issues. Primal defense has helped me so much I could never express it's benefits in a review. It took a long time to work up to the proper dosage and I did lose faith along the way, I'm so glad I didn't stop taking it, as many do. I can tell a noticeable difference if I stop taking this produce even for a couple of days. I feel this product has helped me so much I would say it saved my life. Thank you Garden of Life.

      Gotta' take these on an empty stomach and wait about 40 minutes before you eat or drink anything but water, but worth it. Really is excellent for helping keep the colon in good shape. Plus, if you've had your gall bladder removed and you eat a meal high in animal (not plant) fat, use 3-4 with the meal to help your body break down the fat.

      I heard about this product from a natural healer and about your company for the best prices. I take 2 pills 2 times a day 1 in the morning upon waking up on a empty stomach and 1 tablet at night before going to bed on a empty stomach. It has really improved my IBS less gas, bloating and constipation.
