Present in many live foods but destroyed by heat processing, live probiotic cultures populate the intestinal tract where they play a positive role in digestive and immune health!

        I suffer from Ulcerative Colitis and Chrohns Disease..I was diagnosed in 2001.I have been suffering with this for the last 11 years. I was just introduced to this product in February of this year(2012). My previous medication was which was terribly expensive. All the prescription meds just pacified these diseases and did not bring much comfort, But since I have started taking Primal Defense Probiotic Ultra. My symptoms are almost ALL GONE!!!I have much more energy, and it has regulated my bowels tremendously, I would recommend this product to anyone..IT HAS REALLY CHANGED MY WHOLE LIFE!!! Thank God for this vegetable supplement.

        Been using for 2 years with good results to relieve and eliminate gas, bloating, diarrhea. HOWEVER, the last bottle I purchased was ineffective (lot # 5011914, Value Size). All symptoms returned. This makes me question the quality control. I called the company and was told they received no other complaints regarding this lot number. Anyway, I have been testing out other brands now and hesitate to ever go back to this. Perhaps it is best to not ever purchase value packs but instead go for the smaller batches?

                  My search is over! I've tried MANY probiotics and unfortunately, they had nasty side effects (gas and bloating). The Garden Of Life Ultra is by far the absolute BEST! They are a bit expensive but you are getting a quality product, so it's well worth it.

                    Comments about Garden of Life Primal Defense Ultra 15 BILLION - 90 Veggie Caps:

                    After months of severe gastrointestinal illness in 2007, a friend led me to read Jordan Rubin's book, The Maker's Diet, and follow biblical principles to eating and living a better lifestyle. I also started taking the recommended supplements of fiber, greens, vitamins, probiotics, Icelandic cod liver oil, etc. Within days my illness was completely reversed! I believe out of all of the GOL products, Primal Defense Ultra is the single-most beneficial to my drastically improved gastrointestinal and overall health. I use this product first thing in the morning on an empty stomach with 8oz of water, then again in the afternoon 2-3 hours after food. I wait 30 minutes before eating or taking any other supplement, to get the maximum benefit of it being in my GI tract "alone". It continues to help tremendously with blood sugar levels, daily and gentle "evacuation", and energy levels. For several years recently I was off of all GOL products while serving continuously in a foreign country. Now that I am back in the US where the products are readily available, I am back on all of them full force, and noticing huge improvements in my overall health. I would recommend any GOL product to anyone who wants real, whole food nutrition, as it is a brand you can trust for everyday use. GOL supplements, as well as meats, dairy, and other food products from Jordan Rubin's other company Beyond Organic, are also readily available at health stores and some grocery stores... which makes following this lifestyle of eating much easier. I have consistently found Vitamin Shoppe to have the best prices and discounts. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

                            I have IBS and small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) diagnosed by hydrogen breath test. Since I've started using this brand of probiotics, my symptoms have decreased substantially. I really thought the only way to get relief from the SIBO was from a course of antibiotics every 6 weeks and that I would have to live with not eating as healthy as I would like due to not being able to tolerate a lot of fruits and vegetables. I am extremely happy with the quality of this product and will recommend to others. I also use this brand of digestive enzymes that has worked wonders on being able to tolerate healthy foods.

                                I started using this product in effort to promote better digestion. Previously, I suffered from stomach aches every afternoon plus frequent bloating. My doctor didn't have any answers for me even after she recommended an ultra sound on my stomach area. I was suffering that much. I started this product after a friend said she took this as one of her supplements. She also said that spending a little extra for this product opposed to other lesser priced ones out there, was worth it. I could tell a difference immediately. I just take one in the am and one at night before bed. I don't have the afternoon stomach aches any longer and am amazed and grateful to have found something as simple as this to promote better health and well being.

                                This worked fairly quickly for me, meaning I saw results within the first 2 weeks of use. My skin is clear and I feel healthier. The only issue I have is that they advise you to take it on an empty stomach, which usually results in me getting nausea for about 30 minutes to an hour. Other than that it's fine and I will continue to use this product.

                                  I suffer from Ulcerative Colitis and Chrohns Disease..I was diagnosed in 2001.I have been suffering with this for the last 11 years. I was just introduced to this product in February of this year(2012). My previous medication was which was terribly expensive. All the prescription meds just pacified these diseases and did not bring much comfort, But since I have started taking Primal Defense Probiotic Ultra. My symptoms are almost ALL GONE!!!I have much more energy, and it has regulated my bowels tremendously, I would recommend this product to anyone..IT HAS REALLY CHANGED MY WHOLE LIFE!!! Thank God for this vegetable supplement.

                                    I have IBS and have tried a few prescriptions and other supplements, but nothing works as well as this. After taking this for a few years, I have had to up my dosage from 2 per day to 3 per day sometimes, but whatever it takes to keep me from living in the bathroom is great!
                                    As far as the price is concerned, the store will meet the internet price every time, and that is the best price I've found.

                                        First of all let me tell you that this price on this product totally Rocks !I have used Primal Defense for a few years getting it a popular store in town but when I was looking for another product and found Vitamine Shopp prices to be better well Im sold. Its almost half the price !If you are looking for a product that helps eliminate waste in the GI tract and boost your immune system by doing so then you have found the right product. Please look no further. I had a terrible ordeal with delievering my last daughter and have 20 yrs later developed hemorroids and this keeps them in check and in doing that keeps them from bleeding. Bonus right !!Please drink plenty of water with this product. It makes a huge difference and works alot better if you do. Take as recommended. Lets face it we do not want all that waste sitting in our bodies making us feel run down, tired and maybe making us sick. Also allow a week or two of using it correctly to get used to it and to see the full benefit. You have been eating for how many years ? So a week or two to make yourself regular or see improvement wont hurt. Good Luck. I love Garden of Life Products !

                                            Although pricier than some, it is definitely worth it. My system and gastro tract is on track and I feel much better overall when taking the Primal Defense. I have tried all other avenues, including cutting out sugar, dairy & wheat products etc, but without the additional probiotic of this formula I was getting very inconsistant results. I'm a believer!

                                                Primal Defense Ultra has re-set my gastrointestinal track and improved my overall health. My system is no longer slow and sluggish, but processes food quicker, therefore I eliminate waste before it sits and becomes toxic. I sleep better, have more energy... With a healthier intestinal track I'm absorbing my supplements better and regular blood work reveals better absorption of nutrients. I have an autoimmune disorder and found these probiotics help keep me at my best by aiding my immune system naturally. Definite RECOMMEND for adults with gastrointestinal problems, immune problems, or for older folks who need to improve digestion and energy levels!

                                                    I have Crohn's disease and have been taking this religously 2-3x a day. I really believe it has been helping my symptoms and flare-ups. I've tried others but this has the most complete formula and hasn't given me gas like some of the others have. I've found that this site has it for the lowest price.

                                                        A family member had a bad GI reaction to antibiotic treatment. It lasted 2 months. We tried a lot of yogut as well as two other probiotic supplementals. It wasn't until I tried this one that he returned to normal.

                                                            Of the many probiotic brands and formulas I've tried...this is my favorite. It's a bit pricey, but it's hands down the most effective I've used. If you find it on sale I suggest you double up.

                                                            Best Answer: I store mine in the refrigerator. I think it was one of the best health decisions I ever made, to take these probiotics. Hope you find the same.

                                                            Is this gluten free?

                                                            Best Answer: Not sure if "Ultra" is truly gluten-free, but the regular "Primal Defense" is gluten-free and states it is "Gluten-free" on the label. I'm on a strict gluten-free diet due to Celiac's and the regular Primal Defense has posed not problems to my condition.-Rena

                                                            Best Answer: Hi, this is Julie H, the person who posted the question. Thank you all for your responses. I decided to also contact Garden of Life customer support and here is their response: "Thank you for your email and interest in Garden of Life's products. The probiotics used in our Primal Defense formulas do not need refrigeration because they remain dormant in a dry state and only activate when they become moist. This process begins when they are ingested and so activation will begin in the gut. If the products are refrigerated once opened the probiotics may become moist, and possibly activate before they are ingested. This goes for all of our Primal Defense formulas. Please store the Primal Defense in a cool dry place such as a kitchen cabinet/pantry."
