Why do we need Probiotics?
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) Colitis
- Crohn’s Disease
- Skin problems such as Acne, Eczema and Psoriasis
- Delayed development in children
- High Cholesterol Levels
- Frequent Colds and Flu
Homeostatic Soil Organisms
“In the human gastrointestinal tract there are hundreds of microscopic life forms that live in a symbiotic relationship with one another. When the immune system breaks down, the body is left wide open for invasion of pathogenic organisms such as candida (yeast) and parasites. When taken on a daily basis, the HSO’s set up a protective grid in the body and stimulate the immune system to ward off against all forms of bacteria, yeast, fungi and parasites. When HSO’s colonize in the gastrointestinal tract here is simply no place for the pathogenic organisms to live. HSO’s change the intestinal environment and can prevent the body from infestation of these dangerous organisms. Without HSO’s, parasites and candida are free to wreak havoc in the digestive tracts of susceptible individuals.
Parasitic Infection (Parasites): Recent medical research suggests that 3 out of 5 Americans will be infected by parasites, at some point in their lives! Often going undetected, they live off of our bodies and reproduce rapidly. Parasites can rob the body of essential nutrients and can lead to serious illness or even death.
Candidiasis: Everyone has candida, a form of yeast that is normally found in the human digestive tract, the vagina, and on the skin. In healthy individuals with strong, functioning immune systems, it is harmless and kept in check by the beneficial bacteria occupying the same space. When the balance of intestinal bacteria is altered and the immune system becomes compromised, candida begins to proliferate, infecting organs and tissues of the boy. The candida becomes pathogenic, transforming from a simple benign yeast into an aggressive fungus that can severely compromise one’s health.”
The 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.
HSOs work from the inside of the intestines dislodging accumulated decay on the walls and flushing out waste.
HSOs 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 development.
HSOs 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.
HSOs are very aggressive against pathological molds, yeasts, fungi, bacteria, parasites and viruses.
HSOs work in symbiosis with somatic (tissue or organ) cells to metabolize proteins and eliminate toxic waste.
HSOs stimulate the body to produce natural alpha-interferon. Alpha interferon is a potent immune system enhancer and a powerful inhibitor of viruses.
HSOs 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 Probiotics?
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 its job in your body?
Two Primal Delivery Systems
Primal Defense comes in two easy to use forms: Powder and 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.
