Why do we recommend using RESTORE before so many everyday activities? It’s simple: using RESTORE sets our bodies and our microbiomes up to work better in our modern world. 

  • Using RESTORE before meals protects against both glyphosate and gluten damage. 
  • Using RESTORE Sinus Spray before outdoor activities can protect against environmental irritants. 
  • Using both promotes full hydration at a cellular level. 

Glyphosate and Gluten Damage 

Our labs have shown that RESTORE protects the gut lining from injury by gluten and glyphosate. This means that using RESTORE before meals can help to protect your body from the inflammatory triggers found in foods. 

Glyphosate, the world’s most widely-used herbicide and the main ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup, is a water-soluble compound that is used in agriculture both to control weeds as well as to desiccate, or dry out, crops in order to make them ready for harvest. It is also used in consumer versions of Roundup for at-home weed control.  

There is currently a widely-increasing awareness and controversy around the cancer risks of Roundup. The glyphosate that is present in food breaks apart the cell lining of the gut (your frontline of defense against toxins). Gluten damages the gut lining in a similar way. When the gut lining is compromised, the body’s ability to defend against inflammatory triggers is compromised.  

Avoiding gluten entirely can be very difficult for many, but glyphosate is so ubiquitous it’s near impossible to steer clear of. Not only is it present in conventionally farmed foods, but since it’s water-soluble, glyphosate is also present across the United States in water supplies, the air, and has even been found in the breastmilk of nursing mothers.

Environmental Irritants 

In addition to the toxins that we are ingesting daily, we use a myriad of chemicals and herbicides in landscaping, cleaning, sports and other leisure activities. Exposure to these chemicals, especially prolonged exposure, can result in an inflammatory immune response. You might be more familiar with the immune response triggered by natural environmental irritants such as pollen, dust, or even animal dander, but exposure to environmental toxins can create a similar response. Using RESTORE Sinus Spray before a swim, hitting the golf course, visiting a petting zoo, or just heading outside to enjoy the weather can help strengthen your tight junctions and give your natural defenses an added boost! 

Full Cellular Hydration 

As you continue to #restorebefore, RESTORE is strengthening the tight junctions in the gut lining, and creating an optimal environment for your microbiome to thrive and communicate with your cells more effectively. On a cellular level, your body is absorbing and using water more effectively. This might result in a noticeable change in hydration, including better bowel movements, more hydrated skin, and even increased energy levels. This is an exciting step for so many new RESTORE users, as it means that your body’s natural hydration is improving!

Remembering to use RESTORE before meals and daily activities can have massive benefit for your wellbeing. From a microscopic level, RESTORE is helping your microbiome work more effectively with your body. By deepening your connection to the microbiome, regularly using RESTORE reminds us how deeply we are connected to the health of the world around us.
