Primal Defense is the only formula that contains a unique whole food blend with homeostatic soil organisms (HSOs). Pesticides, herbicides and other widely used chemicals deplete these organisms from the soil our fruit and vegetables are grown in. Many years ago, before spraying and the use of these chemicals, the body would acquire an abundance of these from the food we ate.  Primal Defense replaces these valuable bacteria that pasteurisation, irradiation and disinfected foods no longer provide.

  • The key bacteria in Primal Defense can thrive in the toughest digestive environments and are undeterred by stomach acid
  • 100% vegetarian and gluten free
  • No artificial colours or preservatives
  • No refrigeration required
  • Creates an inhospitable environment for antagonistic or undesirable micro-organisms
  • Available in caplets or powder

What is the difference between Primal Defense and other micro-flora formulas?

Even if they manage to get through the destructive stomach acids, most of these formulations have a hard time implanting in colons that are pH imbalanced or have too many harmful bacteria. HSO’s are designed to implant in any colonic environment.

Primal Defense bacteria are grown and incorporated into a living whole food substrate using the Poten-Zyme process. This allows them to thrive on their long journey through the GI tract.  We believe the substrate is as important as the bacteria themselves. Primal Defense requires no refrigeration.

Why do we need Primal Defense?

Our modern lifestyle, which includes antibiotic drug use, chlorinated water, chemical ingestion, pollution and poor diet, is responsible for eradicating much of the beneficial bacteria in our bodies.  

How can I be sure Primal Defense works?

The efficacy of a bacterial formulation should be based upon the ability of the product to "ferment" foods. To test the viability of  a product, simply drop a few caplets in 2-4 ounces of milk and leave at room temperature for 24-48 hours. If the product is viable, the milk will change to a thick yogurt-like consistency. This measures the ability of a product to produce enzymes and break down or pre-digest food. If a product cannot pass this simple test it will not be capable of doing its job in your body.

The Poten-Zyme Process  - This is the advanced fermentation process using living organisms and their enzymes to digest nutrients into food forms that your body can easily assimilate. The resulting Living Nutrients™ are complexes of vitamins and minerals that have been potentiated by our process and converted to a more body-friendly form. Living Nutrients contain the necessary cofactors required for proper absorption and utilization, including enzymes, amino acids, oxidation inhibitors and organic acids.  Whole food based supplements have high nutritional value because they contain natural bioactive compounds called phytonutrients which are well-documented for their role in optimizing overall health. It is estimated that there may be more than 100 different phytonutrients in just one serving of vegetables.

There are two important phases to our exclusive Poten-Zyme™ process. In the first phase, we introduce a select variety of friendly micro-organisms, also known as live cultures, into the base vitamin and mineral blend. Under exacting time and temperature conditions, these bioactive bacterial cultures initiate the breakdown of the cell walls of the whole-foods and nutrients making them more body-ready and easier to digest by the body. In addition, the vitamins, minerals and other nutrients bind to the cell walls of these cultures, converting them into a food form that is easily recognized by the body.

The second phase completes the conversion to living nutrients through the introduction of a second set of live strains, such as Lactobacillus plantarum, also normally found in the human gut. Lactobacillus produces lactic acid and acts as a chelating agent that completes the assimilation of the nutrients into a food form. Our unique selection of bacterial strains results in a low pH once the fermentation process is complete. During the final phase of fermentation, the yeast is eliminated and the vitamins and minerals are converted into a body-friendly food form. The end result is a predigested nutrient in a “living” food-form that is gentle on the stomach and easily absorbed by the body. This Poten-Zyme™ process is exclusive toGardenofLife, and distinguishes our brand from any other supplements available in the market today.
