Infowars Probiotic Biome Defense Review

Infowars Probiotic Biome Defense Review

When you take a probiotic supplement, you do not want to consume one that combines every strain they can think of into one probiotic pill. It might be convenient, but most people with digestive issues are going to react negatively to the probiotic. Individual probiotic strains should be treated as different “medications”, they each modulate the immune system and have different properties. At an alarming rate, I am recommending less and less probiotic supplements. Why am I recommending less probiotic supplements? Because so many people I coach have negative reactions to them. It is better to manipulate the microbiome using other supplements, fiber, diet, and occasionally prebiotics. There are some probiotics that I still recommend that improve people’s digestive health; Biome Defense is not one of them.

My Issues With Biome Defense From Infowars Store

Taking Biome Defense from Infowars Store is like throwing twenty-three darts (bacterial strains) at a dartboard, blindfolded and hoping a few hit the bullseye to improve your health. The more strains that your probiotic supplement contains, the more likely someone is going to act negatively to the supplement. Bacterial strains in a probiotic supplement can cause worsening histamine intolerance (allergies), Th1 / Th2 dominance (inflammation or histamine intolerance), or D-lactate issues (brain fog and anxiety) if you are sensitive to them. When it comes to probiotic supplements, the more is not the merrier.

Histamine Intolerance:

  • L. bulgaricus
  • L. casei
  • L. helveticus
  • L. reuteri

D-lactate:

  • L. acidophilus
  • L. bulgaricus
  • L. fermentum

Th1:

  • L. bulgaricus
  • L. casei
  • L. plantarum
  • L. reuteri
  • L. rhamnosus
  • L. salivarius
  • B. bifidum
  • L. acidophilus
  • L. johnsonii
  • L. paracasei
  • L. rhamnosus

Th2:

  • B. lactis
  • L. bulgaricus
  • L. casei
  • L. helveticus
  • L. rhamnosus
  • Bifidobacteria
  • L. acidophilus
  • L. rhamnosus
  • S. thermophilus

Biome Defense also contains inulin as the primary prebiotic. I do not recommend that you ingest too much inulin when you are having small intestine and colonic dysbiosis and digestive issues. Inulin is one of the worst prebiotics for people with digestive issues, it produces excess fermentation (bloating), and feeds many of the opportunistic strains including Candida, Klebsiella, and Salmonella. Klebsiella ferments inulin so it would not be good for people with alkalizing spondylitis and rheumatoid arthritis to ingest it. Ingestion of inulin, in people with these conditions would have increased inflammation and pain.

Finally, it adds HSO bacterial strains to the product, and we all know Fix Your Gut’s controversial negative stance on them. The HSO strains in Biome Defense include Bacillus subtilis, Bacillus coagulans, and Bacillus clausii.

However, there are a few things about Biome Defense that I can give praise to Infowars Store. The probiotic supplement is refrigerated in the warehouse and comes shipped cold in dry ice packaging. Probiotics do not do well when exposed to room temperature; I am glad they are keeping the supplement refrigerated throughout the transport chain. I also like that the supplement contained organic acacia gum as a prebiotic, it is one of the few fibers that I have had the most success in coaching people with digestive issues. Acacia gum is low FODMAP, increases Bifidobacteria and Lactobacillus endogenous flora, and helps to increase gut diversity.1 2 3

I recommend Survival Shield X-2 (Detoxadine) from Infowars Store, it is the best iodine supplement, but I do not recommend Biome Defense at all if you are having digestive issues. No supplement company is going to produce every supplement that I would recommend, but just because I do not recommend one supplement from a company does not mean the rest are worthless. I do not recommend Biome Defense sadly; it is too much of a wildcard when it comes to your gut health.

  1. How does one replace particular gut bacteria strains that may have been completely eradicated due to prolonged antibiotic use? My stool test revealed undetectable levels of certain (non-lactic acid) strains. Thanks in advance.

  2. Hi John,
    I am more confused than ever about the appropriate probiotic to take. I have TH2 dominance and under active TH1 chronic fatigue syndrome/leaky gut and would like to know if you could recommend a probiotic for people who have this kind of immune imbalance?

  3. what do you recommend for someone with GERD and sibo ..as i have so much gas and cant put on any weight..
