After being on strong antibiotics for diverticulitis a few years ago, I have suffered from gas and loose stools daily. I tried various diets and probiotic and nothing seemed to help. I saw a bottle of Restore at my local grocery store and decided to give it a try. After about a month of taking about half the recommended amount, my symptoms have totally cleared up. Don't know why it works, but it seems to help. I haven't changed my diet at all.

I started taking this while I was two months into a Candida diet, and was eating very clean and low-antigen, and also taking humic and fulvic acid and essentially really working a program to restore my health. Yet I still had gas and bloating every day, which I've had for at least 20 years. Within about 3 weeks, the gas and bloating were essentially gone. And now, as long as I don't eat sugar, dairy, and a couple of other things, it's like it's virtually gone. It was recommended to me by a functional medicine doctor. I've rarely had the experience of taking a single supplement and having an obvious and dramatic resolution of a symptom, so I'm super happy about this. I wish there were published studies, but it does seem to be a problem that if you can't patent something, then third-party research doesn't get done.

I started taking Restore daily about a month ago, due to a concern for intermittent diarrhea which had been going on for about three years. It has helped significantly. It was actually recommended by my wife's functional medicine doctor for her leaky gut, and she believes it has improved her condition as well. I would love to see some publicly available research on this, but for the two of us, the anecdotal evidence is that it works! And I have no interest in the company whatsoever!

I have had rectal cancer which required chemo, radiation, an ostomy and a reversal. For the first 18 months after the ostomy reversal, I had a terrible time trying to achieve some regularity even though I tried a myriad of things. About 8 week ago, I added Restore and I feel like I have gotten so much closer to a healthier normal digestive tract. I also started dreaming strange dreams! I suffered from a very slow gut and Restore seems to have vitalized it.

I have no financial interest in Restore. I am making these comments simply because it has helped more than any other product that I tried to get my gut to return to a more normal status before the cancer diagnosis.
