Primal Defense Ultra is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent Best probiotic! Garden of Life is the top of the line on all their products!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best for me Have tried many different probiotics over the years, including Dr. Ohirra's, which are very strong. This one from Garden of Life agrees with my stomach the best and does the best job. It is easy to increase dosage by just adding more capsules-currently taking 3 caps 3 time a day. Yes, they may be pricey BUT they do the job very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best probiotic My Chiropractor recommended this product over 10 years ago. I then saw Jordan Rubin on TBN and heard his story, got his book and have been convinced this has helped me greatly.This helps replinish minerals as well as a being a broad spectrum probiotic.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Contains iron? Why? I have not purchased this product because it contains 1.8 mg iron per capsule. Why does it contain iron when too much iron is a problem for men? I can only give so much blood to keep my iron levels down....I certainly don't want to be taking extra iron in my probiotics! The reviews sound great, and I would not hesitate to buy this product IF IT DIDN'T HAVE THE ADDED IRON!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Testing these vs. other probiotics Half a bottle in, I cannot say the effectiveness and value of these from only that much experience, only from researching Rubin's books. He of course makes them sound amazing. I am comparing them to Bio-Kult and also Klaire Labs Vital-10.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Have used this product for several years after reading about the benefits. I have been very satisfied and find this is an economical way to get the extra HSO and probiotics (in addition to a little extra iron).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Garden of Life Primal Defense Ultra is the same great product that I bought at the Health Food Store except at half the retail price. I have used this product for some time now and I am happy with the results.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from BUYER BEWARE Be very careful if you use this product. It has a lot of estrogenic ingredients and can really mess up your hormones; badly. I felt so sick on this supplement and it took a while to realize that this was causing the issue. It really disrupted my hormonal balance and caused a lot of grief. So be aware of all of it's "plant sources" and factor that into your decision to try this product. I'm very disappointed in it as I had read the manufacturer's books and it sounded so good. I did some research and he changed the formulation after he wrote the book. BUYER BEWARE

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the money This probiotic is worth the money. Every time we try the lesser expensive brands we don't get the Wellness benefits we experience with this great product. All nine of the people in my family use this or the kids version everyday!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Product For me this is a quality product. I saw some immediate results. I liked the caps better than the tablets I tried previously of the same product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greatly Helped My Skin This product helped clear up my skin. It was suggested to me and I thought the price was a little high at first. Now i believe that it is worth every cent ! I will probably take it the rest of my life!
