Nearly 70% of the immune system is associated with the gastrointestinal (GI) tract through synergistic interactions with various bacteria colonies (flora) that reside in our GI tract to maintain its health and function. Imbalances in this gut flora—either an absence of beneficial bacteria or an overgrowth of unhealthy organisms—can interfere with our quest for optimal health. Abdominal pain, bloating, gas, constipation, diarrhea, and a struggling immune system are some common outcomes of imbalanced gut flora. We are bombarded daily with antibiotics in our water, in our food, and in medications. This overutilization has contributed to a wide array of gastrointestinal problems, from IBS, SIBO, IBD, and autoimmune problems. The microbiome is considered by scientists to be an essential component to overall good health. Probiotics are naturally-occurring friendly bacteria that enhance the microbiome. Biotic Defense includes 10 strains of bacteria, totaling 50 billion CFU’s per capsule. The strains in this probiotic were selected to support those with celiac disease and gluten sensitivity, and encourage healthy and timely elimination by acting as a natural stool softener, further encouraging a more complete digestion.
Biotic Defense is useful for:
• Digestive health*
• Supporting healthy elimination*
• Boosting immunity*
• Rebalancing gut flora*
• Recolonizing good microbes after antibiotic therapy*

After the media story on gluten cross contamination being found in many probiotics, I bought this supplement. Been taking it for two months now, and I love it.

July 7th, 2017 I began tapering off oxycodone after being on it for chronic, intractable pain for 10 years. October 9th, 2017 I took my last dose of oxycodone. That’s when the crazy diarrhea started. Took this product for the first time last night with dinner. This morning I had my first non- diarrhea bowel movement in a month. I’ll write another review in a couple of weeks but am already excited to see that after just 1 dose, I see a positive difference. Yay!!!
I like knowing there is no possible cross contamination. I also appreciate that there is no bacteria strain in this probiotic that my daughter has a sensitivity to, that gives peace of mind.
Is Biotic Defense a SBO probiotic?
I beginning to get sick and Biotic Defense came to my rescue…literally. 😀

I take it every morning before breakfast, and feel safe knowing I can trust Gluten Free Society’s supplements to be completely grain-free.

I love having a high quality probiotic that doesn’t require refrigeration.
I’ve been taking this probiotic for a while now and it’s the best one. I love the fact it’s free of all the things I stay away from corn, soy, gluten and etc. no other probiotics can replace this.

I am pleased with the concentration and diversity of organisms that are provided without gluten fillers. Happy to have a quality probiotic to support my immune system. I plan to try the powder for my kids next.
Meredith Kucharczyk –
Biotic defense has continued to work for over a year. Very happy with it
Can this capsule be opened and put into cold food
I’ve never been tested for or diagnosed with a gluten sensitivity issue, but have been looking for a reputable, clean, and effective the probiotic…is this still beneficial to take on a daily basis for the general population?
To mention a few, I suffered from asthma, breast cancer, leaky gut, sibo and autoimmune disease. I take Biotic Defense to defend myself against such insidious diseases.
This has been working well for me for about 3 years now. It is nice to know that I can trust everything in it, and that has so many CFU and strains that we need for a healthy gut. I plan to keep on using it!

I have tried so many probiotics that were supposed to help my digestion but actually made it worse because of ingredients contained in them that I am allergic to. I’ve already felt a big difference using Biotic Defense.
A good product for regularity.
Love these ! This is my third order made a difference in my bloating and bowl movements !

Lisa Zamorski –
I feel great taking Biotic Defens. I can count this product to not have any hidden fillers or gluten. I take it everyday in the morning. It really helps to maintain a good microbiome balance.
Nancy Simon –
This product is helping to support my system along with careful food selections.
Kim Matlock –
I have two gluten-sensitive teens, one of whom develops painful, scarring cystic acne when exposed to gluten. After 18 months of Accutane did nothing to help him we began pursuing a different path and ultimately discovered gluten was to blame. Gut healing has been the cornerstone of repairing the damage and getting my kids healthy again. We switched to Biotic Defense a couple of months ago and have seen a tremendous boost in recovery. Biotic Defense has so many more strains targeted for people with gluten issues, and of course the peace of mind that I’m giving my kids something truly gluten-free is so comforting. Thank you so much for your products and informational videos. You have helped us so much and seeing my kids smiling again because they feels good and look good is the best Mother’s Day gift I could receive!

Love this product I’m getting what I need to help my body !

It is a great product it helped me a lot
My gut loves this product. I am doing much better.
i cannot remember feeling this well. Biotic Defense is the absolute best product I have found.
It appears to be helping with digestion and regularity. Noticeable difference when I stopped taking it for a month. It’s good to feel safe about ingredients being grain free. Only wish it came with a larger quantity.
I have tried several probiotic supplements that I have not reacted well to. Biotic Defense has a wonderfully calming effect when I take it at bedtime. I open the capsule into a small amount of water and without stirring and drink. Not sure if this is recommended but it has worked for me.
Love that I don’t have to worry about any gluten in my supplements any more. I’m rebuilding the good bacteria in my gut with this supplement.

I feel it is helping me with my gut issues: leaky gut, gluten sensitivity.
This product really helped my daughter get rid of her yeast overgrowth, leaky gut and gut dysbiosis. Her gut is balanced now after using this along with a few other of Dr. Osborne’s supplements. Forever grateful for a line of supplements that are grain free/corn free and so effective!

I really haven’t been taking this long enough to know if it is working.
