Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT Customer Service I have been using Garden of Life Primal Defense Ultra for some time. I like this product and would recommend it to anyone who needs a good probiotic and great pricing. However I also recommend Swanson's for their outstanding customer service. For some unknown reason, the glass bottle this product comes in arrived shattered in the box despite the fact that it was wrapped in bubble wrap. I called Swanson customer service and a new bottle was immediatetly overnighted to me. Thank you Swanson. I will continue to recommend you for your products as well as your customer service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Primal Defense I have been buying this product from Swanson for years. I always feel better when I am using it regularly. Recently I ordered three bottles and one bottle broke in transit. Even though I get a great price through Swanson they are still not inexpensive! I called customer care and they sent me a replacement free of charge. That really made me feel good. I like dealing with Swanson for my health product needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Probiotic On The Market This probiotic is the best on the market by price and quality. I have been using it for years and it has helped my immune system. I have tried other brands that did nothing for my digestive tract and as I aged, that is a huge concern. I recommend this probiotic to everyone that ask. Swanson has the best price by far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Primal Defense Ultra The health food store said this is the best probiotic, and that it doesn't need refrigeration. That makes it the most convenient probiotic for travel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product I've used this product for several years and find that it does it's job. Very convenient because you can take it with you to work and for travel as it' doesn't need to be refrigerated. Recently started using Garden of Life, raw probiotics for men, 50 and wiser, which I really like but is more expensive. Alternating the two of them has been a good combination.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product This product is helpful with regularity. It is a must have!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Value The day I started using Primal Defense, my bowel movement became regular. My only concern is it does contain magnesium stearate and rice maltodextrin. I hope Garden of Life will perfect their product one day. But at the moment I am very happy with its quality and will keep buying it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Primal Defense "Garden of Life" I have used Primal Defense for years. It is comparable to high end exspensive pro biotics. If you buy this product through Swanson, it will be affordable and very dependable!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Swanson's own is better Great price compared to other retailers. I started probiotics with Primal Defense regular, then Ultra. Worked well. But now even this Ultra is too weak for me. I prefer Swanson's Signature Line 65 billion bacteria, for both the need to take less frequently, as well as way cheaper.
