RestorFlora is comprised of spores that are tolerant of antibiotics and a yeast species that is unaffected by antibiotics. Nonetheless, it’s best to take RestorFlora a couple hours apart from antibiotic drugs if possible to ensure full potency. RestorFlora is generally very safe and can actually support the body’s healing process when used along with treatments, including antibiotics. For specific interactions between the prescriptions you are taking and any supplement, be sure to consult with your doctor and read the product insert for the drug in question to see if there are any contraindications.
Antibiotics are important drugs that are often helpful and are a valid treatment option. Neither Michelle nor Embrace Health, Inc. condones that you stop taking a prescribed antibiotic drug unless directed to do so by a qualified medical professional. As with any drug, antibiotics have pros and cons and side effects. It’s ultimately your decision whether to use antibiotics or not. The key is to be under the care of a medical professional no matter what methods you choose to use.
RestorFlora can generally be used at the same time as other supplements. However, it’s best to take RestorFlora or any other probiotics a few hours apart from supplements that may have antimicrobial properties to reduce the risk of reducing the potency of the probiotic.
RestorFlora has not been specifically studied for safety during pregnancy or for nursing mothers. Be sure to consult with your doctor before using RestorFlora during pregnancy or nursing.
Children as young as 2 months can use RestorFlora, provided that they start slowly and use a low usage amount. For babies less than 6 months old, a capsule can be opened and a pinch of the powder can be placed into the infant’s mouth using your finger. For kids older than 6 months, a pinch of capsule powder may be placed into food or drink. For details about usage for children, please refer to the “How do I use the RestorFlora product?” FAQ above. If you have questions about using a specific supplement with your child, please talk with your healthcare professional.
RestorFlora is a professional grade product and has a higher potency than other probiotics. The only side effect that requires caution is potential “die-off” or “detox” reactions if you start at the full usage amount from day 1. The most frequently reported symptoms are intestinal cramping and loose stools. Other symptoms of G.I. detox or die-off include: gas, bloating, cramps, diarrhea, loose stools and gut discomfort.
Therefore, it is highly recommended to start with a low amount and slowly work your way up to the full amount over several weeks to reduce the risk of these symptoms. For our recommended product usage, please refer to the “How do I use the RestorFlora product?” FAQ above.
Taking RestorFlora just after a meal (within 10 to 20 minutes) is ideal. The amino acids and carbohydrates in food help the probiotic spores move from their dormant to active form in the upper GI tract, providing immune system benefits.
RestorFlora is a physician’s strength, professionally formulated probiotic supplement. Some people report positive results within a few days of use. However, it can take some time for your body to change the balance of it’s intestinal flora and heal itself. Also, if you don’t start slowly with this probiotic, some symptoms of gut discomfort may increase for a little while, especially if you start with the full usage amount. Probiotics alone are not a substitute or replacement for a complete program to address stubborn challenges. For best results, this program includes: immune system support, diet changes, proper cleaning and hygiene, prevention measures, professionally prescribed treatments or remedies, and the guidance of a healthcare professional.
Nutritional supplements such as probiotics are not meant to treat or “cure” any kind of disease or medical condition. The purpose of nutritional supplements is to support your body to heal itself. We have all been programmed by the media, drug companies and even our doctors to take a pill to fix our health problems. But for most difficult health challenges, this mainstream concept of taking pill X to “cure” disease Y is an incomplete and short term solution at best. It really does take a complete approach to address stubborn challenges – this is why Michelle Moore wrote her books. Rather than putting all your stock in a single supplement, it’s better to address the challenge on multiple fronts as detailed her books.
Vegetable capsules are used for RestorFlora. There is also cellulose in the capsule that is the prebiotic (food for the probiotics). It’s made from hypo-allergenic, Non-GMO acacia fiber.
RestorFlora contains no gluten, wheat, dairy, salt, sugar, soy, artificial colors or flavors.
Most probiotics on the market suffer when not refrigerated. With RestorFlora, no refrigeration is necessary. The bacterial spore and yeast species inside RestorFlora are very stable and it can be stored in a cool, dry place inside your home. This makes shipping the product less expensive (no cold packs required), and convenient when traveling.
The product is too potent and people using it need to receive support and guidance. Be sure to review the product usage guide in the above FAQ “How do I use RestorFlora” and contact us if you have any questions. It’s also important to be seen by a health practitioner to monitor your progress and adjust product usage as needed.
The shelf life is 2 years.
