          After my husband suffered serious bouts with flares from Crohn's disease, I started reading everything I could get my hands on to help educate us about this disease. After I read about Jordan Rubin I admit I was skeptical. Skepticism turned to serious doubt after "googling" what others had to say. The words 'hoax' and 'rip-off' were common. Then when my husband began to look as sickly as Jordan Rubin did in some of his pictures, I thought we had nothing else to lose by trying. We began the regimen recommended by Jordan Rubin that includes Garden of Life Primal Defense and after six months of strict diet and supplementation, my husband not only accomplished remission - but has been able to eliminate ALL medications he had been taking for Crohn's (between 17-21 pills each day). That was six years ago. We could not manage without Primal Defense. What about other, cheaper brands? We have never risked switching because we know Garden of Life Primal Defense works. I would not recommend anyone stop taking their medication without a doctor's advice. However, my husband is proof that it can be done and he's had two of the best colonoscopies within the past five years that he's ever had. The scar tissue that was visible on previous colonoscopies - gone! You can find negative information about any topic on the internet. In my personal opinion, make your own decisions based on your own experiences For us, Primal Defense is a necessity and keeps our systems in check.

          Comments about Garden of Life Primal Defense Ultra - 180 Veggie Caps:

          I was nearly on my death bed with severe colon infections as well as IBD. After taking Ultra Primal Defense by Garden of Life I became healthier quickly. I took up to 10 capsules daily which was probably more than I needed but now I am taking only one per day which I have done for years. I was told it is a cure for the antibiotic resistent bacteria called c-Diff and after researching that I found out it's the only product that works out of any probiotic on the market.. I introduced this product to a friend of mine who has frequent colon infections and he swears by the product and uses it faithfully too. I reccommend only the ULTRA Primal Defense even though it costs more as it has the necessary ingredients to combat about anything.. Antibiotics for the most part aren't needed when using this product.

            This has been the best probiotic I have found and I have been recovering from severe intestinal imbalnce , ulcerative colits, eczema etc. The only reason I don't give it 4 stars is b/c it's not th best if you are very sensitive to fish, milk but once you use a hypoallergenic probioitc for a few weeks you can switch to this with no problem-in my expience. I love this product and tell all my friends to try it.

                    I have had problems with lactose/dairy intolerance for nearly a year before trying this product. I eliminated dairy totally and took this product 2-3 a day and after 3 months tried dairy in small quantities. I was very surprised that I could now tolerate dairy and am now able to eat it as much as I want with no discomfort. I still use this product for maintenance and believe it keeps my system in check. If you have lactose/dairy intolerance and want to get it under control, I recommend trying this product.

                        My wife has been suffering from Colitis/Celiac for several years now since the "doctors" removed her gallbadder. After terrible side effects from prescription meds we turned to probiotic vitamins and had marginal success at best. This one she only needs two pills a day (even though the bottle recommends three) and it has been months of no symptoms. A must have if you have any form of Colitis!!

                            This has to be the best product on the market for the whole intestinal tract. I have been using this off and on for the last 10 years, (was using the regular Primal defense before this one came out), and I have never seen results out of a supplement so immediately as this one. I used to have serious heart burn, and haven't gotten that in 10 years, but mostly I have problems with my bowels, not going to the bathroom regularly & the rest of the problems that comes with that. When I use this, I can not tell you how much this works for me. I can eat ANYTHING, it doesn't matter if it is a gassy food or whatever, my intestinal tract doesn't react AT ALL, and everything works like it's supposed to!!! I just can not say enough about this product. If you take 2-3 a day regularly, it's one of the best things you can do for your body. This is one supplement I can not do without. I love all Garden of Life products!!

                                    I have tried many probiotics but none as effective for me. I am sensitive to dairy products so Primal Defense Ultra was perfect and I noticed the difference right away, much better digestion and overall better health.

                                        I was diagnosed with severe ulcerative colitis in 2005. I started reading Jorden Reubin's book, The Makers Diet while in the midst of battling this illness. It all made sense. Our diets and foods are not giving us the vitamins we need. My doctor told me I was going to be on medication for the rest of my life. So while on the meds, I introduced Garden of Life's probiotics into my vitamin regime. Now, I am no longer on meds and feel perfectly fine. I know the probiotics along with much prayer is what keeps me well. I also have not had a sinus infection since I have started taking GOL probiotics.

                                            I loved Jorden Rubin's book on how he suffered through life and wanted to help others. I believe he uses the best ingredients. This product contains more good bacterias then most others. I love the green in the capsules because I give it to my whole family and sometimes greens are not eaten too much. I am currently on antibiotics and I feel this brand is the best I could have to counteract the ill effects of the antibiotics. To save money, I combine this brand with cheaper brands.

                                                I have been using the Primal Defense Ultra for a few years now and will continue to take 2 a day. I feel better and have stayed well. Most vitamins and supplements upset my stomach, The Garden of Life brand does not.

                                                Best Answer: Since this product - and all products from Garden of Life, were designed by a man who almost died from Celiac's disease - my guess is Yes - but I don't know that for a fact. I would be best to consult his website - Look for Garden of Life

                                                Thank you for taking my question. I would like to start out by saying, that my new lease on life I now have is by the grace of GOD and the dedication of Jordan S Rubin and garden of life products. You see 13 years ago after a series of antibiotic and other meds and 3 more surgeries, my roller coaster life began, until two months ago when I was lead to Garden of Life products, the raw food powders, the probiotics and Now the primal defense ultra. I have a life again. my question is what can help me gain back my weight I am functioning well now but I may need help in gaining weight, most everything in the market today is geared for weight loss. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks Alberto Ramirez
