FAQ15: If I take RESTORE and think it is causing constipation, what should I do?

What to do if I experience mild constipation when taking RESTORE

Zach Bush, MD advises, “When my patients first use RESTORE, some of them experience mild constipation. These patients are not drinking enough liquids. There is general scientific agreement that people should consume at least nine glasses of water or herbal teas a day. You may need to drink more water if you exercise and even more if you live in a hot and humid area of the country. If you feel RESTORE is causing constipation despite adequate hydration, I recommend my patients take Magnesium Malate, 1250 mg daily at bedtime for adults or half that dose for children. Also, you can decrease your daily dose of RESTORE in half until your stools return to normal with the above adjustments in hydration and magnesium intake for a couple weeks, then increase back to recommended doses of RESTORE.

If you have any allergic reaction to RESTORE, or if you have any chronic or reoccurring symptoms or illness, consult a health care professional before using this product.”

Zach Bush, MD, holds three board certifications in Internal Medicine, Endocrinology and Metabolism, and Hospice Care. Dr. Bush uses RESTORE in his medical practice in Scottsville, VA.
