    NOW's Mission
    The NOW mission is - To provide value in products and services that empower people to lead healthier lives. NOW Foods is an award-winning and highly respected manufacturer of vitamins, minerals, dietary supplements and natural foods.

    In 1948, with the natural food and supplement industry in its infancy, entrepreneur Paul Richard paid $900 for the purchase of Fearn Soya Foods—a Chicago based manufacturer of grain and legume-based products. This began a six-decade legacy of providing health-seeking consumers with high-quality, affordable nutrition products.

    History of NOW
    In 1968, NOW Foods was founded under the belief that good health was not a luxury available only to the wealthy. For the past forty years, NOW has made it their life's work to offer health food and nutritional supplements of the highest quality, at prices that are fair and affordable to all those who seek them. Today, NOW Foods is one of the top-selling brands in health foods stores, an award-winning manufacturer, a respected advocate of the natural product industry, and a leader in the fields of nutritional science and methods development. And while NOW has grown considerably over the past four decades, one thing has never changed – NOW's commitment to providing products and services that empower people to lead healthier lives.

Nurturing this competency of value drives NOW's ability to provide high quality products at the very best prices.
    • Natural is Better - NOW is convinced that natural products are better than their synthetic counterparts and produce better results in human health. Therefore, wherever possible, NOW strives to provide products that contain natural ingredients because they are better for their customers.

    I treat probiotics like brain food. According to holistic oriented doctors and traditional Chinese Medical Practitioners, the gut is the second brain. Does Probiotic Defense feed my second brain? Yes, it does! It does make me feel very good when taken as directed. BUT, the directions say to work up to taking it up to 3X a day. I can't always remember to do that and I keep it in the fridge per the instructions, so that's not convenient. And it contains a flow agent, so it's not perfect, but it helps to keep me feeling healthy.

    I RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT!

    i actually bought this product by mistake. I was using the Probiotic-10. It seems to work just as well for me. In the past two years I have gotten colds, the flu and even pneumonia. This winter I was fortunate and didn't contact any of these.
