What are HSOs (Homeostatic Soil Organisms) Probiotics?

Read about Jordan Rubin's recovery using Homeostatic Soil Organisms
From Healthy Living
Vol 5 Number 9


Dr. Brasco, a board-certified gastroenterologist, believes HSOs are essential to our health and well-being - Read Why.

HSOs or homeostatic soil organisms, are good beneficial bacteria (probiotics) that optimize digestion and immune function.

  • HSOs are now used by health care practitioners worldwide.


  • HSOs originated from non-mutated colonies found in unpolluted soil and plants. Now they are cultivated in US laboratories using proprietary methods.


  • HSOs optimize the digestive terrain and immune function as they move through the digestive tract and form colonies along the intestinal walls.


  • HSOs multiply as they do so, and thus compete with harmful organisms i.e. pathogenic bacteria, viruses, parasites, and fungal forms for receptor sites. They crowd out these harmful organisms while establishing themselves throughout the digestive tract.


  • HSOs soon establish themselves in the intestinal tract and slowly produce the correct environment for nutrient absorption. This leads to a balanced pH, a very important aspect of a healthy digestive tract.


  • HSOs work from the inside of the intestines dislodging accumulated decay on the walls and flushing out the waste.


  • HSOs break down hydrocarbons, a unique ability to split food into its most basic elements allowing almost total absorption through the digestive system. This increases overall nutrition and enhances cellular development.


  • HSOs produce specific proteins that act as antigens, encouraging the immune system to produce huge pools of uncoded antibodies. This increased production of antibodies may significantly boost the body's ability to ward off diseases.


  • HSOs stimulate the body to produce natural alpha-interferon. Alpha interferon is a potent immune system enhancer and a powerful inhibitor of viruses.


  • HSOs provide critical Lactoferrin supplementation. The microbes produce lactoferrin as a by-product of their metabolism. Lactoferrin is an iron binding protein essential for retrieving iron from foods.


Primal Defense from Garden of Life is an advanced HSO (homeostatic soil organism) formula that has the ability to colonize in the gastrointestinal tract.

This colonization inhibits the growth of offensive bacteria, parasites and viruses, activates B-lymphocyte production and has unique immune stimulating effects.

HSOs are probiotic organisms that live in the soil.

They are hardy and are therefore not affected by the acids in your stomach. HSOs are derived from pristine soil that is free of chemicals, antibiotics and additives.

Primal Defense from Garden of Life products is a unique, nutritional formula that is able to

  • spread beneficially in the Gastro Intestinal tract,
  • get rid of harmful waste and so allow food and nutrients to be readily absorbed.
  • It also stimulates the immune response and balances the hormonal system.

Its original, natural formula provides 70 micro-nutrients: vitamins, minerals, enzymes, antioxidants, and fatty acids essential to the body.

Primal Defense from Garden of Life is safe, effective and can be used by children. It comes in easy to swallow caplets and powder.
