After using the Advocare Probiotic Restore Ultra for a month and a half I’m ready to share my experience and provide you with my full review.
Advocare Restore ULTRA Probiotic Full Review & Opinion
Advocare Probiotic Ingredients
The Advocare Probiotic Restore ULTRA contains 6 billion healthy bacteria per capsule, coming from 7 different probiotic strains, there’s also a FOS prebiotic included, which is something I especially liked, because prebiotics dramatically improve the efficiency at which probiotics work.
The list of included probiotic strains:
- Lactobacillus acidophilus,
- Lactobacillus rhamnosus,
- Lactobacillus casei,
- Bifidobacterium bifidum,
- Bifidobacterium longum,
- Bifidobacterium breve,
- Streptococcus thermophilus
One of the strains I particularly like in this probiotic is Bifidobacterium longum, because it’s been proven to be extremely effective at treating seasonal allergies and histamine intolerance (click here to read more).
There are also numerous other benefits that come with it including lower cholesterol, as well as anti-inflammatory properties.
There’s another strain that I’m a big fan of, it’s called Bifidobacterium bifidum and the reason I like this one is because of its beneficial effects on improving digestion, lowering histamine levels and more.
One of the strains I don’t like is Lactobacillus casei, the reason is that many research studies have proven that it’s quite aggressive and can sometimes have negative effects, as it flushes out to good bacteria out of the body, something we don’t want.
Recommended dosage for Advocare Restore ULTRA
The recommended dosage according to the instruction is a single dose daily before breakfast with some water. Ideally you should take it at least 30 minutes before a meal.
If you don’t notice any results after 1 week of taking it, the company suggests taking 2 capsules per day to increase the effects.
Advocare Probiotic Restore ULTRA Benefits
When using the Advocare Probiotic I didn’t experience or notice any dramatic benefits, my digestion remained the same as usually when taking my regular probiotic, so I guess that could count as a plus. This probiotic also does a good job at treating histamine intolerance, click here to read more on that.
It’s important to note that I was taking a 60 billion CFU (my favorite probiotic), before switching to the Advocare Probiotic, so it could be that these probiotics simply aren’t as good as my other ones.
When taking my regular probiotic my mind stays clear and I’m always full of energy, unfortunately, this changed when switching to Advocare Probiotic, I noticed a bit of cloudiness in my mind, as well as a subtle drop in energy levels, which was a bit unfortunate…
Advocare Probiotic Side Effects and Allergens
One negative that I did notice with Advocare Probiotic is the side effects… After testing dozens of probiotics over the years I’m used to a little bit of bloating after switching probiotics, but with this one, not only did I experience bloating, I also experienced a stomach ache…
My stomach hurt for a few days and finally stopped hurting on day 4, which was a big bummer, as I’m not used to such side effects. 🙁
Another big problem I have with this probiotic is that there are no allergens listed on the box, nor on their website, which is a big concern…
If you’re someone who is sensitive to allergens, I’d recommend avoiding this product.

Advocare Probiotic Restore ULTRA Review
Overall, even though I liked the CFU count and the strain included in this probiotic, I unfortunately cannot recommend it for 3 sole reasons.
First off, the side effects were super bad and I usually do not complain about these, but the fact that my stomach hurt for 3 days straight was definitely a bit of a bummer.
Second, I didn’t really experience many benefits, yes my digestion was good (but it was good even with my usual probiotic and I never have side effects when taking that one).
Third, the fact that there are no allergens listed anywhere on the packaging is a big no no for me… in my opinion you should avoid this probiotic if you’re sensitive to allergens.
Overall, there are many better probiotic options out there for the exact same price (some even more affordable), thus I’d recommend that you look elsewhere.
