What is Primal Defense?
Primal Defense is a natural whole
food probiotic blend of HSOs (Homeostatic Soil Organisms) designed to optimize
the health of the human digestive tract and immune system. Primal Defense is
produced using the Poten-Zyme process and the Microflora Delivery System. Primal
Defense contains the same nutrients that have been used for thousands of years
by some of the healthiest and longest living people in the world.
Why do we need Primal Defense?
Beneficial soil and plant
based microbes used to be ingested as part of food grown in rich, unpolluted
soil. However, for the last 50 years we have been sterilizing our soil with
pesticides and herbicides, destroying most bacteria both bad and good. Our
modern lifestyle, which includes antibiotic drug use, chlorinated water,
chemical ingestion, pollution and poor diet, is responsible for eradicating much
of the beneficial bacteria in our bodies. A lack of beneficial microbes often
results in poor intestinal and immune system health, contributing to a wide
range of symptoms and illnesses.
The following symptoms may result from a lack of probiotics:
- Gas, Bloating and Indigestion
- Diarrhea and/or Constipation
- Bad Breath and Body Odor
- Candida Yeast Infections
- Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia
- IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome)
- Skin problems such as Acne, Eczema and Psoriasis
- Delayed development in children
- High Cholesterol Levels
- Frequent Colds and Flu
What are HSOs (Homeostatic Soil Organisms)?
main component in Primal Defense is the HSOs, which have been used for over 22
years by thousands of health practitioners. The naturally occurring colony
arrays of probiotics are non-mutated from the original cultures found in
unpolluted soil and plants and are now cultured in U.S. laboratories using the
discoverer's proprietary methods.The HSOs are in a substrate of nutrient rich
superfoods providing vitamins, minerals, trace elements, enzymes and proteins.
The probiotics are then made dormant using the Microflora Delivery System, which
protects the probiotics and delivers them directly to the GI tract where they
multiply and flourish.
How do HSOs Work?
Impervious to stomach acids and the
digestive process, the microorganisms move through the stomach to the intestinal
tract where they form colonies along the intestinal walls. HSOs multiply in the
intestines and actually compete with harmful bacteria and yeasts for receptor
sites, crowding out the pathogens and taking up residence. Once established, the
organisms quickly begin producing the proper environment to absorb nutrients and
help to re-establish the proper pH. According to early research and anecdotal
evidence the following is a summary of the actions of HSOs.
- HSOsTM work from the inside of the intestines dislodging
accumulated decay on the walls and flushing out waste.
- HSOsTM break down hydrocarbons, a unique ability to split food
into its most basic elements allowing almost total absorption through the
digestive system. This increases overall nutrition and enhances cellular
- HSOsTM produce specific proteins that act as antigens,
encouraging the immune system to produce huge pools of uncoded antibodies. This
increased production of antibodies may significantly boost the body's ability to
ward off diseases.
- HSOsTM are very aggressive against pathological molds, yeasts,
fungi, bacteria, parasites and viruses.
- HSOsTM work in symbiosis with somatic (tissue or organ) cells to
metabolize proteins and eliminate toxic waste.
- HSOsTM stimulate the body to produce natural alpha-interferon.
Alpha interferon is a potent immune system enhancer and a powerful inhibitor of
- HSOsTM provide critical Lactoferrin supplementation. The microbes
produce lactoferrin as a by-product of their metabolism. Lactoferrin is an iron
binding protein essential for retrieving iron from foods.
What is the difference between Primal Defense and other
Even if they manage to get through the destructive stomach
acids, most probiotic supplements can have a hard time implanting in colons that
are pH imbalanced or have too many harmful bacteria. HSOs are designed to
implant in any colonic environment. The Microflora Delivery System makes sure
that the probiotics colonize throughout the digestive tract where they can work
their magic. The probiotics contained in Primal Defense are grown and
incorporated into a living whole food substrate using the Poten-Zyme process.
This puts the bacteria into their home, if you will, allowing them to thrive on
their long journey through the GI tract. Most probiotics on the market today
will grow bacteria and then, in a centrifuge, separate them from their
substrate. We believe the substrate is as important as the probiotics
themselves. 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. Since most probiotic
supplements contain live cultures, they are temperature and age sensitive;
therefore requiring refrigeration. If room temperature can begin to degrade
these probiotics, imagine what the warm human body will do. The HSOs are dormant
in the caplet and activated by fluids. Primal Defense requires no refrigeration.
Many probiotics on the market measure their potency in colony forming units
(CFU). In Primal Defense, it's not the quantity of probiotics, it's the quality.
The probiotics in Primal Defense are hardy and are designed to resist heat,
cold, stomach acid, chlorine, fluorine, ascorbic acid and bile. The efficacy of
a probiotic should be based upon the ability of the product to "on ferment"
foods. If you want to test the viability of a probiotic product, simply drop a
few caplets in 2-4 ounces of milk and leave at room temperature for 24-48 hours.
If the probiotic is viable, the milk will change to a thick yogurt-like
consistency. This measures the ability of a probiotic to produce enzymes and
break down or pre-digest food. If a probiotic cannot pass this simple test, do
you think it will be capable of doing it's job in your body?
Physicians saying about Primal Defense?
"I use quite a bit of
Primal Defense for tough cases of bowel toxemia and irritable bowel syndrome. My
patients like it, and I attest to Primal Defense being a superior product for
gut metabolism." James Privatera, MD
"Almost all people who consult me for the care of irritable bowel syndrome,
candidiasis, Lyme disease, or infections get their gut flora changed to
healthier consistencies by my prescribing Primal DefenseTM for them.
I am invariably using one of the lactobacillus preparations, and the
HSOsTM of Primal DefenseTM are the top of the line, the
Cadillac' of lactobacilli." Seldon Nelson, DO
"For many years now I have been involved in alternative medical care and
integrated medicine. In the search for effective, safe remedies, I am constantly
reviewing product claims and anecdotal reports. More often than not they fail to
meet my expectations, that is, except for Primal Defense. This product generated
the most affirmative response I have ever seen." Charles Hamel, MD
Two Primal Delivery Systems
Primal Defense comes in two easy to use
forms: Powder and UltraZorbe caplets. UltraZorbe caplets utilize a proprietary
technology which requires no heat and fully preserves the delicate probiotics
and enzymes contained in the product. UltraZorbe caplets are designed to provide
rapid disintegration and dissolution to completely deliver the nutrients in a
timely fashion. Just drop a few caplets in water and see for yourself.
