                  I've been using this product for years, ever since it came on the market, and I have never been disappointed. I was having severe digestion problems previously and it seemed that everything I ate hurt my stomach. Once I started using this product daily my stomach pains went away and I was able to resume eating foods that I had stopped. I still watch what I eat, but if I want to have a cheat day I can go ahead and do it without any negative consequences. I don't know what I would do without this product now.

                  Does this product contain soy?
                  Nancy B on Sep 23, 2013
                  Best Answer: Hi - I'm looking at the label, read all over, and don't see anything about soy. We also have read "the Maker's Diet" - the author Jordan Rubin is the creator of this product and know that he is not generally an advocate of soy products (unless maybe some fermented soy). You may want to go to the Garden of Life website though if you want extra confirmation about Primal Defense being soy-free.

                  It's an amazing probiotic. My husband esp. likes it...

                  I am especially interested in the product for my dogs. It has been recommended by other people who give this to their pets. I'm apprehensive because it is not recommended for children and it won't be safe for my dogs. Do you know the reason it is not safe for children?
                  A Vitamin Shoppe customer on Nov 7, 2013
                  Best Answer: Hi - I think that it may be that there's a children's version of this that's just less concentrated. Other than that, I've heard that probiotics are good for children, everyone. We're distributors with a company called Nature's Sunshine (wholesale) and there is a children's probiotic in their stock. That's probably the only thing... concentration.

                  hope this helps. you may want to do a search for children's products to read/confirm.

                  What kind of side effects or body reaction when taking the powder form?
                  charles m on Jan 15, 2015
                  Best Answer: I have not experienced any side effects or reactions. I use Homozon daily to keep my gut clean. So I add Primal Defense to my yogurt to replenish the flora. Viruses and colds stay away. It saved Jordan Rubin's life.
