Primal Defense by Garden of Life on sale at 40% Off!
Garden of Life's Primal Defense is a probiotic blend containing Homeostatic Soil Organisms( HSO ) (live enzymes, vitamins and minerals) designed to optimize the digestive terrain, bowel and immune system function. PrimalDefense is the PRIMARY building block of the Garden of Life Products and should be taken by everyone interested in this program.
What is Primal Defense?
Probiotics are important because they can synthesize certain vitamins and short-chain fatty acids to support a healthy intestinal lining and bolster immunity. When your intestinal lining is occupied by healthy beneficial flora, it leaves unwelcome icroorganisms deprived of both space and nutrients. Primal
Defense contains the same nutrients used for thousands of years by
some of the healthiest and longest living people in the world.
Why do we need Primal Defense ?
Beneficial soil and plant based microbes used to be ingested through food
grown in rich, unpolluted soil. However, for the last 50 years our soil
has been sterilized with pesticides and herbicides, destroying most bacteria,
both bad and good. Our modern lifestyle, which includes antibiotics, chlorinated
water, agricultural chemicals, pollution and poor diet, is responsible for
eradicating much of the beneficial bacteria in our bodies. A lack of beneficial
microorganisms often results in poor intestinal and immune system health,
contributing to a wide range of symptoms and illnesses.
What are HSOs ( Homeostatic Soil Organisms )?
The main component in PrimalDefence is HSO , which has been
used for over 22 years by thousands of health care practitioners. The non-mutated
naturally occurring colonies of probiotics in Primal Defense are from the original, pristine
cultures found in unpolluted soil and plants, now cultivated in U.S. laboratories
using proprietary methods. Primal Defense HSOs are in a substrate of nutrient
rich superfoods providing vitamins, minerals, trace elements, enzymes and
proteins. The probiotics are then made dormant using the Microflora Delivery
System, which protects and delivers them directly to the GI tract
where they multiply and flourish.
How do HSOs Work?
HSO are beyond probiotic. HSOs are impervious to stomach acids and the digestive process, the microrganisms in Primal Defence probiotic
move through the stomach into the intestinal tract where they form colonies
along the intestinal walls. HSOs multiply in the intestines and actually
compete with harmful bacteria and yeasts for receptor sites, crowding out
pathogens and taking up residence. Once established, the organisms quickly
begin producing the proper environment for nutrient absorption, thus reinstating
a balanced pH.
What is the difference between Primal Defence and other Probiotics?
Even if they manage to get through the destructive stomach acids, most
probiotic supplements can have a difficult time implanting in colons that
are pH imbalanced or have too many harmful bacteria. The HSOs in Primal Defence are designed
to implant in any colonic environment. The Microflora Delivery System ensures
that the Primal Defence probiotic colonizes throughout the digestive tract where they
are most effective. The probiotics contained in Primal Defense
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 GI tract.
Most probiotics on the market today grow bacteria, and then in a centrifuge,
separate them from their substrate. We believe 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 contains no FOS.
Since most probiotic supplements contain live cultures, they are temperature
and age sensitive, therefore requiring refrigeration. If room temperature
can begin to degrade these probiotics, imagine what the warm human body
will do. Our HSOs remain dormant until activated by body fluids,
thus requiring no refrigeration. Many probiotic products measure their
potency in colony forming units (CFU), whereas in Primal Defense ,
it's not the quantity of probiotics, 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
