A DFU restore through iTunes will revert you back to stock. Make sure you backup your device prior to restoring. If you have a backup made prior to your jailbreak, and the difference in data is not much, it's recommended that you restore the backup made when your device was stock since some residual jailbreak data/cache may carry over when restoring a stock device with a jailbroken backup.
