all bacteria are bad. We’re sure most of you have heard of friendly flora in
the colon. They help fight off bad bacteria that may cause infections,
diarrhea and a host of illnesses. We cannot get rid of all the bad bacteria
in our body, but we can improve the ratio of the good versus bad bacteria in
In our opinion, the liberal use of antibiotics prescribed by doctors to kill
bacterial infections is a major cause of the good bacteria being destroyed.
Antibiotics indiscriminately kill good and bad bacteria very quickly.
Chlorine is another one. It’s used to kill bacteria in our drinking water.
Chemicals in our food, pollution and poor diet are also factors that reduce
the good bacteria.
Probiotic supplementation is an excellent way to start building a healthy
floral colony. After researching many different brands of probiotics, we are
excited to tell you about Primal Defense.
Most probiotic formulas we’ve researched contain 2 or 3 strains such as
Lactobacillus Acidophilus and Bifidobacteria Bifidum. Primal Defense
uses Homeostatic Soil Organisms (HSOs) which contains 14 probiotic strains.
These are beneficial microorganisms that were found naturally in our soils
before modern farming. Today, most of these living organisms have been wiped
out due to the pesticides, herbicides and chemical treatments of our soils.
Some experts have said that ingesting these HSOs is like eating a plant
grown in pristine soil thousands of years ago.
The 14 strains are:
Lactobacillus Acidophilus, Lactobacillus Bulgaricus, Lactobacillus Plantarum,
Lactobacillus Brevis, Lactobacillus Caucasicus, Lactobacillus Fermenti,
Lactobacillus Helveticus, Lactobacillus Leichmannii, Lactobacillus Lactis,
Lactobacillus Caseii, Bifidobacteria Bifidum, Saccharomyces Boulardii+,
Bacillus Subtilis, Bacillus Lichenformis
All strains are grown in a non-dairy nutrient-rich substrate of 100%
bio-available predigested Superfoods (Spirulina, Chlorella, Dunaliella,
Kamut Grass, Wheat Grass, Barley Grass, Oat Grass, Alfalfa Grass), Whole
Food Blend containing PhytoSterols/Sterolins (Sweet Potato, Flax Seed,
Sesame Seed, Sunflower Seed, Pumpkin Seed, Ginger), Ionic Plant Based
does not contain live cultures; therefore, they are not temperature and age
sensitive and require no refrigeration. The HSOs in Primal Defense are made
dormant using the Microflora Delivery System, which protects the probiotics
and delivers them directly to the GI tract where they multiply and flourish.
A simple test you can try at home to measure the ability of a probiotic to
produce enzymes and break down or predigest food is to simply add the
probiotic you’re testing to 2-4 ounces of milk and leave at room temperature
for 24-48 hours. If the milk changes to a thick yogurt-like consistency,
that shows it’s working.
