The soil based HSOs in Garden of Life's Primal Defense give you the powerful nutrients you would get if your food came directly from soil, untouched by pesticides, herbicides and other widely used chemicals.

Jordan Rubin formulated Primal Defense to include 14 species of hardy, non-dairy HSOs to replenish the valuable nutrients our modern diet may no longer provides. For even greater efficacy, these Homeostatic Soil Organisms (HSOs) are grown in a base of nutrient-rich Super foods that provide more than 100 naturally occurring live enzymes, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antioxidants, chlorophyllins and plant saponins.

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

Even if they manage to get through destructive stomach acids, most probiotic supplements have difficulty implanting in colons that are pH imbalanced or have too many harmful bacteria.

HSO blends in Primal Defense are designed to implant in any colonic environment. The Microflora Delivery System of Primal Defense ensures that the probiotics colonize throughout the digestive tract where they are most effective.

The probiotics contained in Garden of Life's Primal Defense supplements are grown and incorporated into a living whole food substrate using the Poten-Zyme process, which allows them to thrive on their long journey through the gastro-intestinal tract.

Most probiotic companies grow bacteria, and then in a centrifuge, separate them from their substrate. Garden of Life believe that the substrate is as important as the probiotics themselves.

Many probiotics have included fructooligosaccharides (FOS) in their product. FOS is an indigestible sugar that may cause digestive disturbances in certain individuals. Primal Defense from Garden of Life contains no FOS.

Most probiotic supplements require refrigeration because they contain live cultures, and they are temperature and age sensitive, If room temperature can begin to degrade these probiotics, imagine what the warm human body will do. Primal Defense HSOs remain dormant until activated in body fluids, and do not require refrigeration.

Many probiotic products measure their potency in colony-forming units (CFUs), whereas in Garden of Life's Primal Defense, it's not the quantity of probiotics that counts; it's the quality. The hardy probiotic strains in Primal Defense are resistant to heat, cold, stomach acid, chlorine, fluorine, ascorbic acid and bile. The efficacy of a probiotic should be based upon its ability to thrive in the digestive tract, whatever the conditions.

Garden of Life no longer lists the CFU's (colony forming units) of micororganisms on its label. Instead, they include the milligram amount of the ingredient blends as amore accurate reflection of what can be guaranteed in the finished product. As with other products containing beneficial organisms such as yogurt and kefir, the actual CFU count in the finished product will vary from lot to lot. This variance can be found in all probiotics in the marketplace. Garden of Life's Primal Defense is formulated to include 8.6 billion micro-organisms at the time of manufacture and Garden of Life guarantee the presence of viable organisms in the finished product.

What are probiotics and why do I need them?

Probiotics are formulas designed to promote the growth of beneficial microorganisms, also called good bacteria. Healthy human intestines contain billions of microorganisms both good and bad. The good bacteria in the intestine are considered an integral part of your immune system. Probiotics provide good bacteria that synthesize the B-complex vitamins and crowd out yeast and parasites.

Many people are unaware that daily exposure to our environment and even certain habits considered healthy like taking antibiotics, drinking chlorinated water, using antibacterial soap often kill these good bacteria essential for health.

Where do Garden of Life's proprietary HSOs used in Primal Defense come from?

Years ago, our soil was teeming with beneficial microbes, which humans would consume through their food. Today, however, the use of pesticides, herbicides and other chemicals has virtually eliminated the beneficial probiotic content in our planting soil. In order to gain the HSO benefits we once enjoyed, Garden of Life accesses an exclusive, proprietary process to cultivate naturally occurring colonies of HSOs in a laboratory, using Superfood substrates and pure, nutrient-dense soil.

What probiotic species does Garden of Life's product Primal Defense contain?

Primal Defense supplements are a natural whole food probiotic blend of HSOs utilizing our proprietary Poten-Zyme process and the Microflora Delivery System. The Superfood blend in each Primal Defense caplet is cultured using the following 12 probiotic species:
  • Lactobacillus acidophilus
  • Lactobacillus rhamnosus
  • Lactobacillus salivarius
  • Lactobacillus paracasei
  • Lactobacillus plantarum
  • Lactobacillus caseii
  • Lactobacillus brevis
  • Bifidobacterium breve
  • Bifidobacterium lactis
  • Bifidobacterium longum
  • Bifidobacteria bifidum
  • Bacillus subtilis
