Considering 80 percent of the immune system is located in the digestive tract, maintaining a healthy gut is crucial to support overall health and immunity. Two of the most important ingredients for healthy digestion are digestive enzymes and probiotics. So when I was asked to try a product, Daily Body Restore which contains both probiotics and digestive enzymes in one pill, I was happy to do it.

Poor gut health means poor immune function
Gut health has a direct impact on our overall health as well as the health of our immune system, nervous system, hormonal health and more. When your gut health is balanced, your immune system is also balanced. But when it’s out of balance, so is your immune system which opens a Pandora’s Box of health problems that can affect any part of the body.
Research over the past two decades has revealed that an unhealthy gut contributes to a wide range of diseases including diabetes, obesity, rheumatoid arthritis, autism, depression, and chronic fatigue syndrome.
Several studies have connected fibromyalgia with the gut, emphasizing a strong relationship between fibromyalgia and small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO). Researchers discovered that the degree of bacterial overgrowth detected in the small intestine has a direct relationship with the severity of fibromyalgia.
The thing is, you don’t have to have digestive symptoms. Poor gut health can manifest as skin problems like eczema or psoriasis, heart failure, autoimmune conditions, depression, mental illness and more.
Daily Body Restore
Daily Body Restore® (DBR™) is a patent pending probiotic supplement that combines probiotics and digestive enzymes to help restore your body’s good bacteria and absorption of key nutrients which helps support digestive and immune health. Daily Body Restore’s formulation combines 9 different probiotics and 10 digestive enzymes in each capsule.
By now many of us are aware of the important role probiotics play in our digestive health. Probiotics are the good bacteria found in your digestive tract. There are thousands of probiotic strains and species and each one has a different function. Maintaining a healthy balance of good versus bad bacteria is important.
Absorbing nutrients from the food that we eat is just as important as supplementing our good bacteria. Digestive Enzymes help to break down difficult-to-digest proteins, starches, and fats. If we don’t have enough digestive enzymes we aren’t absorbing the nutrients from the food we eat.
Daily Body Restore was originally developed by DBR’s founder, Kim Shafer for her family. One family member had Crohn’s disease that certain enzymes and probiotics seemed to improve. The problem was that Kim had to buy multiple types of probiotics and digestive enzymes which was expensive and required taking a lot of supplements daily.
Plus, most if not all of those products had ingredients that Kim didn’t want. Ultimately a decision was made to formulate everything that she wanted but without artificial colors, flavors, dairy or gluten.
Another thing that really sets DBR apart from other probiotic manufacturers is that every customer gets a phone consultation to determine their optimal dosage. I started my DBR trial by taking two capsules a day. Kim said if I was taking the right dose, I should feel an increase in energy within a few days. Initially, I had a minor problem with gassiness and bloating but that went away after a couple days.
After a week, I contacted Kim to let her know I was just as fatigued as ever and she suggested I start taking 3 capsules per day. After the increase in dosage, I definitely felt more energetic. I haven’t had any digestive issues at all and my mood improved.
Why I Like Daily Body Restore
- DBR was created by a real person to fulfill a family member’s health need. That tells me, that great care was taken in developing a safe and effective product.
- Daily Body Restore combines both probiotics and digestive enzymes in one product. With a dosage of three capsules per day, the price is in line with other supplement manufacturers.
- DBR hires independent labs, companies or universities to study their formulation. In addition to restoring gut health, in a recent animal study DBR lowered blood cholesterol levels by 78 percent.
Statin drugs that help lower cholesterol are the most widely prescribed drug of all time. I have mixed feelings about taking them. A 2011 study suggests that statins can increase asthma symptoms. Besides causing muscle pain, there is also at a greater risk for muscle damage when taking an antibiotic or antifungal medication with statins. So if Daily Body Restore lowers my cholesterol and I could stop taking a statin, that would be a WIN WIN.
