Restore is a product that utilizes the latest science about gut health. Good Earth’s wellness department stocks it to support the gut membrane. Restore is a soil-derived liquid containing a balanced family of molecules capable of redox signaling, or assisting in cell to cell communication. The cells in your body contain mitochondria which make up a cell to cell communication network. This network assists in cell support and strengthening. Bacteria, on the other hand, do not have mitochondria, so in order to communicate they have to create their own oxygen exchange redox signaling environment. This redox signaling environment can be created through the unique group of oxygen compounds which are attached to the carbon backbone molecules in Restore.

Restore supports the gut membrane in three specific ways.

It has been shown in lab testing to increase and strengthen the velcro-like proteins in the gut wall, called tight junctions. The loosening of these tight junctions is at the root of leaky gut. Restore can also assist bacterial cells in speaking directly to the mitochondria in your own cells, which can help reduce the oxidative burst of energy that mitochondria let out in response to an acute injury or inflammatory event. Reducing that inflammation is important because it can be the cause of many different chronic conditions. Lastly, Restore acts similarly to a prebiotic by creating a rich “compost” for the bacteria in your gut to flourish. This sets up a beneficial environment for the body to increase the diversity of the microbiome in your gut by allowing more minor species of gut flora to take hold and grow.

A healthy gut can consist of some 30,000 to 40,000 different species all working collectively, and this diversity is one of the most important aspects of a healthy gut.
