Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: What are probiotics and why do I need them?
A: Probiotics are formulas designed to promote the growth of beneficial microorganisms, also called good bacteria. Healthy human intestines contain billions of microorganisms both good and bad. The good bacteria in the intestine are considered an integral part of your immune system. Probiotics provide good bacteria that synthesize the B complex vitamins and help to crowd out yeast and parasites. Many people are unaware that daily exposure to our environment and even certain habits considered healthy (taking antibiotics, drinking chlorinated water, using antibacterial soap) can kill these good bacteria.

Q: What are HSO blends and how do they work? A: HSOs, or Homeostatic Soil Organism blends, are probiotics available in Primal Defense supplement. Upon being swallowed, the HSO compunds activate and restore the gut's balance by attaching themselves to the intestinal wall. On the intestinal wall, they reproduce to form colonies.

Q: Where do Garden of Life's proprietary HSOs come from?
A: Years ago, our soil was teeming with beneficial microbes, which humans would consume through their food. Today, in order to gain the HSO benefits we once enjoyed naturally, Garden of Life accesses an exclusive, proprietary process to cultivate naturally occurring colonies of HSOs in a laboratory, using Superfood substrates and pure, nutrient dense soil.

Q: What is the suggested use for Primal Defense®?
A: Label suggested use of Primal Defense® is: Adults take 1 caplet 3 times per day with 8 ounces of water or juice. Best taken on an empty stomach. Begin with 1 caplet/scoop per day and gradually increase to suggested amount.

Q: Are there any contraindications or warnings for Primal Defense®?
A: As with any dietary supplement consult your physician before using this product, especially if you are pregnant, nursing or under medical supervision. Individuals who are immuno-suppressed should not use this product before consulting with a physician.

Q: Does Primal Defense® require refrigeration?
A: The probiotics that are made by Garden Of Life 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 the probiotics may become moist, and possibly activate before being ingested. Store in a cool, dry place.

Q: Is Primal Defense® suitable for vegetarians and does it contain dairy?
A: Primal Defense® is 100% vegetarian. It does not contain dairy and is free of artificial colors and preservatives. 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.

Q: Is Primal Defense® gluten free?
A: Although we cut the grasses while they are young, before the gluten head forms, due to the large number of ingredients that we use from a variety of suppliers we can not absolutely guarantee that it is free of trace amounts of this protein. Safety is our primary consideration.
