A probiotic replaces the good bacteria in the GI, repopulating the stomach, intestines, and colon with the little workers that properly break down the food you eat. Many of us require a constant influx of good bacteria to combat yeast or to constantly flush intestines in a cleanse state with good bacteria. UltimateDefense™ is our finest probiotic, designed with embedded predigested food sources for the bacteria. It also contains soil- based organisms that do not necessarily colonize the GI, but help greatly in their passage through. UltimateDefense™ is specifically designed to establish complete, lasting colonies of intestinal flora in a world that sterilizes, processes and denaturalizes all food sources.*
UltimateDefense™ is a combination of 13 different bacteria, fermented greens to feed them as colonies get established and soil based organisms to potentiate the bacterial activity in the intestines. A healthy GI bacterial flora is thought to improve overall health and immune system function.

I'm very impressed. I was skeptical at first, but cannot deny that I notice a BIG difference when I take this daily. Also, I haven't been sick since I started taking them, although I was around sickness several times.
When there has been a time that someone in our family (of 11)CAN'T be sick, for a special meeting, or something that can't be postponed, I give them ultimate Defense. I call it "Tummy TuneUp on steroids" and it kicks out the virus, or stomach bug in a very short amount of time. My daughter was planning on flying to Indonesia on a missions trip and everyone in our house got sick right before she left. I gave her an Ultimate Defense every few hours until she left, and she never got sick!
I had been taking Ultimate Defense over quite a long period of time. About 5-6mos ago, I tried a different probiotic, but I wasn't really happy with it. I am re-ordering my Ultimate Defense today, because I have been without for about a month. Oh, what a difference!! My gas and bloating has been out of control. Time to get back to better GI Health!
We work up on the North Slope of Alaska in the airline travel industry. We are in contact with thousands of people during our work hours. Taking Ultimate Defense has literally kept us free of the flu, colds, and other germ and virus-induced sickness. We take one daily. We are a husband and wife team that works for the same company. We take two a day if someone around us starts coughing or sneezing. They have kept us well for eight years of working.
Whenever anyone in the family starts to feel an upset tummy, I give them one of these. Our sons don't miss school because of the flu anymore! I recently began taking one a day (I know, less than recommended, but it's what we can afford), and I'm confident it is helping the tummy flora be better balanced!
I have now tried both tummy tuneup, tummy tune-up jr. and the ultimate defense. I have to say I like them all but Ultimate Defense has given me immediate relief from stomach issues- like upset stomach or painful gas. I'm not saying tummy tuneup isnt effective b/c it is, it just effects me in a different way- it makes me regular and it immensely helped my colicky baby when she was 2 months old! My baby is now 3 and has only had 1 bout of stomach bug in her lifetime, I think it gave her a strong stomach. I tried this not b/c I was unhappy with the tummy tuneup but I read you should rotate your probiotics so you can introduce different beneficial strains to your gut. I'm very pleased with this product, and would highly recommend!
My wife and I use this as part of our preventative regimen to stay healthy. I like the wellness benefits for both of us (especially since my wife is expecting). We work in six different schools a week, and this winter, there have been a LOT of BAD stomach bugs and viruses going around our area. So far, I have been completely spared and my wife, though she got severely sick once, got over it MUCH quicker than others have. I'm hoping ultimate defense, combined with tummy tuneup, is part of that.
I have suffered from IBS since I was 16...battling the symptoms is tiresome.
Out of the blue I discovered Ultimate Defense. My symptoms have gone away! My gut is now back to normal...never thought I would feel good again. Thanks for putting out such a wonderful product.
My two daughters suffer from differing stomach issues, one is struggling with ongoing constipation and the other with loose stools. Ultimate Defense has been an amazing source of relief for both of them. We had tried every probiotic strain and blend under the sun - Ultimate Defense is truly the best blend on the market!
I was diagnosed with C-diff two years ago. After a lot of research, I found Ultimate Defense and it contains the strain that helps fight against c-diff. I've used it for 2 years and feel great. I love that it doesn't make me feel nauseous like other probiotics.
Our family bought a couple of bottles of this when we were going as a family on a mission trip to Mexico. We don't vaccinate our children, so this was a great preventative measure for us! We were also taking some other awesome products and we were on the GAPS diet for our son, but only one of our children felt slightly sick one morning-besides that, we had great health even when a bad tummy bug went through the rest of the team!
I used to suffer from a very sensitive tummy and constipation. Ultimate Defense has not only helped my stomach and gastrointestinal issues, it has helped my overall health in a way I didn't expect. FYI, I travel internationally a couple times a year and used to really fight stomach troubles while away. This last time I went to Guatemala I never had a problem! Took it twice a day religiously!
I love this probiotic--whenever my stomach starts to feel queasy, I take a Vcap or two. It truly cures stomach troubles. For my children, I open a cap and mix it into yogurt, so they can eat it easily. I especially appreciate it when on vacation when the water and food may affect our digestion.
I used a bottle of this once when battling candida. It gave me an extra "Umph" in the fight and then I returned to Tummy Tuneup. When taking this, I could tell it was very potent, it really turned the tide for my body, and it was worth the price.
My husband was getting sick all the time. I gave him natural antibiotics, but that didn't seem to do the trick. Since he has started taking Ultimate defense daily he has not gotten sick at all. I am so thankful!!!
the fact that they added super-foods to the pro-biotic pill was genius! my three year old takes hers in a cup of orange mango juice; i just pull apart the capsule, pour it in, then swirl a little. Don't take it in milk, it was gross! i am very thankful for this product so that i don't have to take my super-foods separate.
I had been taking Ultimate Defense because our family had been battling some pretty nasty flu stuff when I discovered I was pregnant. I can sure tell when I forget to take it because nausea sneaks up on me that doesn't exist when I remember to take it. I have read that taking a probiotic when pregnant passes the good bacteria on to baby anyway, so a double hit with this product!
I have 2 young kids, so tummy issues are sure to plague our home. My husband and I take UD daily (the kids Tummy Tuneup). Whenever we have been exposed to, or think something may be on the horizon, we bump up the dosage. I had an allergic reaction to Thai food and UD helped me to bounce back fast! I've tried other brands and nothing has compared to the results we've seen with UD!
When I forget to order Ultimate Defense and have to search for anything close to this locally, GNC, local vitamin store, etc., I can't find anything close. Many competitors have similar things but not everything in one place.
I gave this to my 6 yr old son while he was on antibiotics for 7 weeks due to Lyme Disease. He never had any of the stomach upset or batthroom issues associated with antibiotics as long as he took his Tummy Tuneup. I have all 3 types in my house, just in case. CJ
Should I take ultimate defense 'just before' meals, as the bottle description states. Or would it be better to take it on an empty stomach that will remain empty for several hours.. I.E. take the pill in the middle of the night. (I have small children so am up regularly in the middle of the night)..
Question by: Ruth on Oct 6, 2016 9:12:00 PM
Just before meals or on an empty stomach that will stay empty for hours are both viable options, one is not necessarily "better" than the other. It all depends on what works best for your lifestyle, individual health history along with what your care provider thinks is the best protocol for you to use with this product.

Hi there. My 3.5yo son has problems with chronic constipation. His doctor has had him on Mirilax for over 6 months, and I want to replace that with something natural. I know Ultimate Defense helps me in that department, so I was wondering if it would be safe to give it to my son daily? He weighs 36 pounds. Thanks!
Question by: Alysha Mourning on Jan 13, 2013 9:17:12 AM
Yes! This would be great to start him on! If he doesn't like the taste, try mixing it with some fresh juice or a smoothie, that should mask it. Or Tummy Tuneup might help and its taste is quite nice.
The other thing that you might want to look into is a Magnesium deficiency. This has seemed to be an underlying problem with a lot of people that struggle with chronic constipation. And he could have half a capsule to a capsule of magnesium a day in juice or water.
The last suggestion is you may want to look at food allergies. In addition, to the probiotics, often eliminating allergens can help you determine what is causing his problems. Sometimes it is something simple like wheat while other times it can be harder to pinpoint!
