Probiotics are also important because they are able to synthesize certain vitamins and short-chain fatty acids to support a healthy intestinal lining as well as bolster immunity.† When your lining of your intestines is occupied by healthy and fieindly beneficial flora, it deprives unwelcome pathogenic microorganisms of both space and nutrients.
Healthy people generally have a ratio of approximately 85% of good and beneficial to 15% potentially harmful pathogenic organisms in the intestinal tract. Sometimes, even those who appear to be well might have an unfavorable ratio because of a daily exposure to environmental toxins and a modern lifestyle. For example, taking antibiotics or drinking chlorinated water may change the optimal microbial balance essential for good health.
Garden of Life believes that probiotics are most beneficial when they are not separated from their food source. Primal Defense®, unlike other isolated probiotic products, contains fermented whole foods and multiple strains of beneficial probiotics in the form of the Homeostatic® Soil Organism Probiotic Blend.

What is Primal Defense HSO Probiotic?
Primal Defense is the only probiotic formula that contains a unique whole food blend with Homeostatic® Soil Organisms (HSOs). The HSOs in Primal Defense are important probiotics you would acquire in abundance, if your food came from soil that is untainted by pesticides, herbicides and other widely used chemicals.

The unique HSOs in Primal Defense takes you to a new level of total health.

What is the difference between Primal Defense HSO’s and other probiotics?
Primal Defense® is the only probiotic that contains 12 species of hardy and beneficial microorganisms in the form of the HSO Probiotic Blend. The ability of the probiotics in Primal Defense to support the normal healthy flora balance in the digestive tract is not based solely on CFU count, but additionally on their ability to withstand harsh conditions in the digestive tract, like stomach acid and bile. Primal Defense also contains naturally occurring substances that function as prebiotics, which feed probiotics .
What are HSOs and where do they come from?
Large scale use of pesticides, herbicides and other chemicals has changed the bacterial balance of the soil. In order to obtain the benefits we historically acquired from consuming foods cultivated in healthy soil, Garden of Life developed a Homeostatic Soil Organism Probiotic Blend using 12 species of beneficial microorganisms.
