Restore isn't a "flush, per se. It's an oil additive that may or may not give a short term improvement in cylinder/ring seal. I would caution you against using a flush of any sort, anyway. It can cause way more problems than it helps.

I seriously doubt anything from a can or bottle is going to help but if you suspect stuck rings, you might want to try Marvel Mystery oil. Squirt some in the plug holes and use it in the crankcase per the instructions.
