It is sort of an infomercial book for Jordan Rubin's Garden of Life products, isn't it? Anyway, I actually do find GOL products by and large seem to be high quality and high potency. I use Primal Defense as one of my mainstay probiotics. I don't usually use many other GOL products though. Anyway, Rubin claims that he tried dozens of different (for his Crohn's) therapies before stumbling on the particular probiotics - the soil based organisms, SBOs, that he uses- that supposedly cured him from death's bed to becoming a healthy, vibrant millionaire health product entrepreneur. But when one looks at his timeline for this transition of just a few years, it seems fishy... I mean, take TCM, or homeopathy, or the SCD, or macrobiotic diets, or veggie diets, or whatever- the many different things he claims he tried hard core... and add a few to six months at least of trying each one to really know if they help, and you'd end up having to spend 10+ years, so it just sounds a bit fishy to me. Still, like I say, his Primal Defense product seems a potent probiotic for me (I use several other probiotics too however, but have relied on long stretches with PD), and his dietary advice is pretty solid and healthy in terms of getting away from processed food and shifting to a much lower carb diet than the high carb standard American diet.
