Kidney Restore FAQ
How soon until I see results?
Many of our satisfied customers have told us that it took between 3-6 months for them to appreciate the effectiveness of our products. But, since every person's body and situation is completely different, we never know how long it will take for someone to achieve the results they are looking for. Generally, in traditional Chinese medicine, herbs are taken for several months to achieve a more balanced and detoxified state. That is why we recommend taking our products for at least 3-6 months to give the body sufficient time to promote healthy kidney function and balance as well as detoxification.*
What makes your products unique over other companies?
Our herbal formulas were created by medical doctors and master herbalist for their patients in Vietnam and Russia. They were able to have these formulas stand the test of time in their practice. In each of our products, select herbal ingredients were chosen due to their high quality and effectiveness. In the manufacturing of our products, we use no fillers, binders or excipients like commonly found in most other companies. We also use the industry's highest and most expensive concentration process which guarantees the highest levels of active plant constituents (active ingredient).*
How safe are these products?
Our products are made from only natural ingredients with no added chemicals, fillers, binders or common allergy causing ingredients. In our tablets, we use a natural rice starch coating and we only use hypoallergenic vegetarian capsules instead of the traditionally cheaper animal based capsules. Each batch of our herbal formulas is laboratory tested to insure purity and compliance of pesticides, heavy metals and microbial contaminants.*
Can I take Kidney Booster by itself?
Yes you can, but we do not recommend that you take it by itself since taking it in addition to Kidney Restore II offers the best and maximum support for healthy kidney function and healthy kidney filtration.*
How long have these types of herbal formulas been used?
Our formulas were initially used over 45 years ago in Vietnam by medical doctors and master herbalists for their patients. In the last 20 years they have also been used in Russia and the United States by doctors, herbalists, individuals and other healthcare providers to achieve a more healthy and balanced state.*
Do your products have any "side effects"?
Since all natural substances like food, pets, herbs, trees and etc. may cause a reaction on a small population of sensitive individuals we recommend taking a reduced amount of product when you first start taking anything new. Our herbal products do not have negative side effects like ones associated with pharmaceutical drugs, but, the body can experience detoxification side effects due to the natural cleansing properties of our herbs.*
How do your products help detoxify the body?
When you begin taking our natural products, the body may begin to balance and optimize the liver, kidney and other organs as well as detoxification pathways in the body. When these detoxification pathways becomes healthier, the body can begin to excrete stored toxins such as previously taken drugs, pesticides, pollutants, bacteria, chemicals and other toxic substances that are trying to come out of the body. While detoxification is a very healthy factor, symptoms can include headaches, acne, diarrhea, constipation, nausea or fatigue. That is why we recommend taking a reduced amount when you begin any herbal program to minimize or prevent any side effects symptoms from occurring. We also recommend drinking at least 8 ounces of pure water, 8-10 times per day during this detoxification period.*
What is the best way to take your supplements?
We recommended you take our products on an empty stomach either 30-60 minutes before a meal, 2 hours after a meal or as directed by a healthcare provider. Drink at least 8 ounces of room temperature to warm water with our products. For optimal balancing benefits, do not skip a serving. If you forget a serving, then take one before you go to bed.*
How can I achieve better results?
Take the products as directed. Work with a licensed nutritionist or dietician to set up a kidney supportive diet that is right for your body. Adding additional products like our Kidney Booster, Cell Restore and Antiox-400 can provide the body with additional support. For faster absorption, herbal tablets may be crushed into a powder and mixed with water. Capsules can be emptied into water and drank as a tea. If you are currently taking prescription medication, always take our supplements at a different time than your medication since prescription drugs may cause imbalance to the body and lessen the effectiveness of the balancing qualities of our herbal compounds.*
Why does my doctor not know of your products?
Unfortunately, medical doctors do not receive any education in school regarding the use of herbs since most of the training they receive regarding disease in medical school surrounds the implementation of pharmaceutical drugs to treat the symptoms of that disease.*
Can anyone take your supplements?
Since these products are natural dietary supplements, we feel that they are perfect for most individuals when taken as directed. Exceptions are made for sensitive or allergic individuals or children who we advise them to take a reduced ¼ to ½ dosages.*
Can I take your products with my existing prescription medication?
Yes you can and should continue to take your existing prescription medication. Always take our supplements at a different time than your medication since prescription drugs may cause imbalance to the body and lessen the effectiveness of the balancing qualities of our herbal compounds.*.
What should I do if my doctor will not recommend me to take your products?
As with any advice from any doctor, we always advise people to get a second opinion from a knowledgeable healthcare practitioner. Since most western trained physicians are not educated in herbal medicine, it is not likely that they will recommend something they know nothing about. In addition, we understand their reluctance since we also would not recommend something we know nothing about. But, we also wouldn't accept a "yes or no" recommendation from someone who isn't trained in that field of expertise. In these cases, we advise you to seek out an educated healthcare practitioner that understands and is trained in the use of herbs. They should be able to provide you an educated second opinion. The majority of our customers, who have done this, have received very positive recommendations about taking our products. Remember that you are ultimately in control of your own health.*
Do you ship to my country?
Yes, we most likely ship to your country. If your country has Fed-Ex or U.P.S. service then there is a good chance that we can ship our products to you. If you do not find your country on our order form please contact us and we will verify.
Will your products work for me if I am on Dialysis?
Our natural herbal dietary supplements are designed for promoting healthy balance and detoxification in the body. If you are on dialysis, the products should still help support healthy balance and detoxification and it is okay to take our products while on dialysis as simply a daily dietary supplement to promote health.*
