Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Primal Defense Ultra is Great I've been using this product for years. It provides excellent probiotic support in and excellent format. July 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. December 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. November 30, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by very good probiotic Very good quality probiotic and Swanson has the best price! To keep the immune system healthy, I wouldn't be without this product. October 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. September 30, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. August 4, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. March 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Primal Defense Ultra My doctor recommended I use this product, and I have taken for a year and a half, I do not want to be with out my Primal Defense Ultra, makes life much nicer, and I tell friends about the satisfaction I get from this product. February 24, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great product This product is helpful with regularity. It is a must have!!! July 12, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. March 30, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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!! December 2, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. August 29, 2011
