From my perspective, the importance of gut health cannot be overstated in any health optimization program. Leaky gut and intestinal hyperpermeability seem to be almost universal in today's society. The insults we expose our bodies to on a daily basis are countless.
I first learned about RESTORE several years ago in 2015 at Autism One. I have used RESTORE personally at various stages as a component of my health-optimization program, and it is part of my routine today.
According the the manufacturer's web site, "RESTORE is a soil-derived, scientifically-backed mineral supplement that has been shown in lab studies to strengthen tight junctions in the gut wall, our firewall against toxins entering the body. RESTORE helps create a biological environment for good gut bacteria to grow and flourish, to support improvement of overall health."
"RESTORE is a new generation, soil-derived supplement that promotes an optimal gut environment. It is not a probiotic. It is not a prebiotic. Rather, it is a carbon-rich, alkaline liquid, comprised of Terrahydrite™, a proprietary formulation of Aqueous Humic Substances and trace mineral amino acid complexes."
"RESTORE has been shown in lab testing to increase and strengthen the tight junction proteins in the gut lining, our frontline of defense against environmental factors in our food, water, and even air, thereby impacting the immune system, as much of the body’s immune system is in the gut lining. Additionally, a stronger gut lining keeps undigested food and environmental elements, such as herbicides and antibiotics used in farming, from leaking out into the bloodstream from the intestines, so the immune system does not have to defend against these foreign “invaders,” which could also be as simple as undigested kale or broccoli."
In terms of potential benefits, "RESTORE is designed to balance gut health, support respiratory wellness, combat environmental exposures, promote immune function, enhance mental clarity, and promote hydration. It is naturally gluten-free. RESTORE has been shown to create a beneficial shift in the bacteria making up the microbiome, which is what many people are attempting to do with probiotics and prebiotics. Carbon-based redox molecules from ancient fossilized soil help restore the communication network between bacteria in the gut, mitochondria, and cells in the body."
This doesn't mean that we get a free ticket to eating gluten and ingesting glyphosate, but when these do occur, the impact to our body may be minimized. I personally think of it like having anti-virus software on my computer. They call RESTORE the "gut's firewall of protection". Anything that can help minimize the impact of gluten, GMOs, and glyphosate on my health is something that gets my attention.
Over time, it became more clear to me that the potential benefits of RESTORE extend beyond the gut. In fact, originally, the product was "RESTORE For Gut Health" and this later became "RESTORE - Complete Well-Being Begins In The Gut". These concepts were discussed in a podcast I did with Dr. Bush to learn more about RESTORE and about hydration. Dr. Bush is one of the brightest minds in medicine, and I really enjoyed learning more about RESTORE from our discussion.
