    Probiotics and Vitamin Code Women/Men 50 & Over Daily Supplements.

    Testimony: My 63 yr old husband went for his exam & PSA this past month and his doctor remarked that his prostate was very much diminished in size than it was a year ago and told him "whatever you are doing, keep doing it." My husband has been on Mens 50 & Over since July of 2009 – it must really work! Thank you Garden of Life and Vitamin Code.

    My name is Ginny T., and health concerns I have are of the gut-health variety. I always thought I was on the right track with eating, but I was still having digestive issues progressively worsening with age. Just this year I began incorporating more "live" enzyme foods, and recipes from The Maker's Diet. I also started taking Primal Defense (answer to the 3rd ?, the product that intrugues me most). Now here I am at 30 with a 1-year old daughter, and I'm feeling better than I have in years energy/vitality-wise. I'm amazed at how this diet – and GOL product – have helped me! Thank you to Garden of Life!

Now that he found Primal Defense, he is back to living a healthy, productive life….and we are having more fun!

    Name: Karen Vaughan
    Issues: Dental health, Parkinsons, Weight
    Product: Oral probiotics for dental health

    I'd like to see your probiotics targeted for weight loss. Since they found rats who are fat have more firmicutes (like acidophilous) and thin ones have more bacteriodetes (like the safe forms of e-coli sold as probiotics in Europe), I'm waiting for a weight loss probiotic.

    Name: Meg

    Health issue concern: lack of digestive fire

    Garden of Life product: RAW cleanse

    I am thinking about a cleanse but I would like one that does not require a radical diet change (i.e. juices only for 3-5 days)

    I've had Crohn's Disease for 25 years. I've been on The Maker's Diet for 4 or so! It saved my life! We have a 21 year old boy and a one year old boy! ha;) I want to feed our little one better than I did the older one. I didn't know back then!

    I have to have Primal Defense and the Digestive Enzymes! I love the Super Green Food and the vitamins! ALL! Like I said! They saved my life!

    Have a great weekend everyone!

    Hey there.
    My name is Jennifer.
    God made sure I got a copy of The Maker's Diet into my hands too! I've been dealing with candida, but didn't realize it for the past 6 years. I had seen all types of doctors who put me on all types of drugs. UGH! What a relief to finally figure out what I had on my own! At any rate, I've been taking Primal Defense for the past 3 months and it's the ONLY thing that has slowly begun to help me see change in my body. All of Garden of Life's products are intriguing to me because I can TRUST them all. 🙂

    1) Name: Christine H.
    2) What concerns me most: A long familial history of digestive problems, thyroid disorders, cancers, and fibromyalgia, most likely due to an entire lifetime's worth of eating dead food. Also I am currently battling a UTI that will NOT go away! Auuugghhh! HELP!
    3) GOL product that intrigues me the most (besides the probiotics which I am currently taking religiously to fight the UTI) is Raw Cleanse. I'd like a good detox 🙂

    1) Kristy
    2) I am concerned in our overall health and want to do the best I can to feed our family foods that promote immune strength and overall health as we have had quite a few health issues in the past few years. We are challenged with many food sensitivies which makes our diet a bit challenging.
    3) Lots of them! Esp. the primal defense, perfect food and raw protein.

    1) Buddy
    2) I have had ulcerative colitis for the past twenty years. Up to last year, I could only control it through medication. However, last year it got to the point where even the medication could not stop the symptoms. This prompted me to do the "Guts to Glory/Maker's" Diet. Once I began this diet, I started to take Primal Defense religiously, and I noticed a huge improvement. I stopped my medications completely, and, best of all, I became symptom free!! Since then, I have continued to follow the "Guts to Glory/Maker's" Diet as well as regularly take Primal Defense, and this has helped keep me healthy throughout this time.
    3) The Garden of Life product that intrigues me most is Primal Defense, for the reasons stated above, and FYI, for its role in helping me with my UC and helping my joints and muscles be ache free for the first time in my life, despite having a lifestyle that involves heavy physical activity.
