ION Gut Health FAQs

Frequently asked questions

  • ION* Gut Support

    • Usage Instructions:
      Adults and Children 3 and Over:

      For general gut-brain health, we recommend 1 teaspoon of ION* Gut Support 3x/day. Optimal gut support is achieved when taken 30 minutes prior to meals because of ION* Gut Support's protective effects against gluten and glyphosate, but you can take it immediately before, with, or after a meal, (or on an empty stomach) and still receive benefit.

      Children under three:

      We recommend ¼ teaspoon, 3x/day for children under 3 years of age. If you would like to introduce your little ones more slowly, we recommend 1/8 teaspoon a day, slowly building to standard usage.

      Sensitive Adult Usage:

      Results can vary with initial ION* Gut Support usage, with many customers reporting rapid and profound early results. These results are not the direct effects of the supplement itself, but instead reflect the innate healing process that occurs in a body as the firewall system is optimally up and running. There is a subset of individuals, however, that can experience symptoms of tiredness, headache, bloating/increased gas, or bowel changes. If you feel you may be sensitive to the changes that can occur as your innate defenses and capacity for water/nutrient absorption are restored, we suggest a slower approach. Start with 1/8 teaspoon of ION* Gut Support daily, increasing usage slowly, as tolerated, to get to recommended label usage.

    • What is ION* Gut Support?

      ION* Gut Support is a liquid, gut-brain health supplement that goes beyond probiotics, helping to support tight junction integrity and diversify your microbiome the natural way. It is soil derived and U.S. sourced. Its active ingredient, humic extract (from ancient soil), is naturally rich in a variety of trace minerals and amino acids. ION* Gut Support isn't bacteria; it's a family of molecules made by bacteria.

    • What are the ingredients in ION* Gut Support?

      Humic Extract (from Ancient Soil) and Purified Water.

      Humic extract is sourced from ancient soil (roughly 60 million years old), and contains a blend of bacterial metabolites (aka, fulvate) as well as less than 1% of a variety of trace minerals and amino acids including chloride, sodium, lithium, calcium, phosphorus, sulfur, bromide, potassium, iron, antimony, zinc, copper, gold, magnesium, alanine, glycine, histidine, isoleucine, methionine, threonine, and valine.

      Please note, all of the trace minerals in our humic extract are naturally occurring, well below the RDI, and not meant to be used as supplementary to any deficiencies. The truly active compound in humic extract is the fulvate, a unique family of carbon molecules with oxygen-binding sites that are produced by bacteria when they digest nutrients. These molecules are the backbone of the ION* blend, helping with critical functions like cellular and microbial communication and chelation of nutrients.

    • Is ION* Gut Support similar to probiotics or enzymes?

      ION* Gut Support is not a prebiotic, a probiotic, or a direct source of enzymes. It contains zero bacteria. We need a much more diverse microbiome than one can achieve by replicating the same strands of bacteria over and over (this monoculture can happen when we take probiotics).

      ION* Gut Support is unique in that it naturally enhances the diversity of your individual microbiome. It works as a communication network that gives our bodies the tools to create their own bacterial ecosystem again - that ecosystem that has been wiped out by environmental toxins such as antibiotics and pesticides. Without the communication network, there will always be overgrowth of certain species and underrepresentation of others.

      Note: Please consult your healthcare provider concerning the addition or removal of probiotics and digestive enzymes in your personal regimen; as each person is unique, we cannot make individual recommendations.

    • Have the ingredients in ION*Gut Support changed?

      While we did evolve much of our brand, labeling, and packaging as of September, 2021, we have not changed the ingredients or our formula. The only thing that has changed about ION* is the way we refer to and measure our ingredients.

      And although our previous ingredient name, "aqueous humic substances", was accurate in a broader categorical sense, "humic extract" is more specific in relation to our unique product.

      The term "humic substances" is used often to describe organic material composed of humic, fulvic, and humin. So, while we do utilize some of the material from humic substances, we do not use it all and to avoid customer confusion and remain as transparent as possible, we have decided to make it perfectly clear that ION* is an extract of humic, hence "humic extract".

      Our proprietary Terrahydrite® extraction and isolation process makes ION* distinctly different from other humic substances available on the market today and "humic extract" helps not only to better distinguish us but to better inform you.

      Further, the amount per serving for our active ingredient, "aqueous humic substances" was 150 mg on our previous label. However, now that we have changed our active ingredient to "humic extract", the new amount per serving is 5mg.

      Again, the formula, dosing, and serving size have not changed. But the way we measure our ingredient has become more accurate thanks to the availability of more accurate testing. We now measure the exact amount of humic extract present in each serving of ION*.

      While previously, we were calculating the amount of ION* molecules together with their water shell, which are held together via hydrogen bonding, we are now able to measure the amount of humic extract more accurately without the water shell. This is 5mg per serving of ION*.

      Moving to the actual weight of humic extract is a more readily understood, measurable, and transparent view of our ingredient.

    • Is sediment and variation in color normal?

      Yes, every product in the ION* suite is all natural and soil derived; the color, taste, and amount of sediment in each bottle can vary. It is neither abnormal nor harmful.

    • Do any of the ION* products need to be refrigerated?

      No, all of the products in the ION* suite are shelf stable and do not require refrigeration.

    • Are there any contraindications with ION* Gut Support?

      There are no known contraindications with ION* Gut Support. However, for maximum efficacy of all products, we do suggest separating by 30 minutes if you are taking ASEA, a thyroid medication, iodine, or a binder supplement.

      Iodine is a highly-charged element that can bind to negatively-charged elements in ION* Gut Support. Also, certain "binder" supplements (clay, charcoal, and zeolites) recommend taking separately from any nutrition, food, or supplements.

      ION* Gut Support supports healthy gut membranes. This support can return expected drug absorption to normal levels and may improve bioavailability of your supplements and food nutrients. If you are on a medication that requires blood level testing to adjust the dose (such as blood thinners or seizure medications) you should discuss ION* Gut Support with your doctor, who may want to get testing done within a week of starting ION* Gut Support, as you would do with a diet change or adding other mineral supplements.

      None of the minerals or amino acids in ION* Gut Support are present in levels that would be considered adequate to allow ION* Gut Support to replace other standard mineral therapies, such as Lithium orotate or your regular multi-mineral supplement, in your health management.

    • What does ION* Gut Support do?

      ION* Gut Support strengthens tight junction integrity at the gut lining, which protects the immune and neurologic systems and regulates the delivery of water and nutrients to the body.

      As demonstrated in our peer reviewed articles, toxins like glyphosate and gluten can degrade tight junctions in the epithelial layer of the gut lining. ION* Gut Support has been shown to promote the strengthening of this gut barrier, which supplies the first line of defense against everyday exposures to environmental and foodborne toxins. This in turn helps with inflammatory response, enhancing mental clarity, promoting immune function, supporting digestion, and alleviating gluten sensitivity.

    • How does ION* Gut Support work?

      Think of ION* as an extremely intelligent transporter that works at a cellular level. ION* isn't adding anything, it's facilitating partnership.

      The fulvate molecules in ION* are bacterial metabolites that chelate (bind) with minerals, amino acids, etc. to help transport them into cells where they are needed. Further, fulvate can remove what is not needed and even harmful in the cell and transport it out.

      Fulvate can even partner with metal ions. By promoting metal bridges between molecules, it encourages electron transfer both within and across molecules which helps facilitate the communication aspect of ION*, what we refer to as "redox signaling". Encouraging cellular communication is truly profound, ultimately promoting innate cellular health. After all, a cell that can reach out and "ask" for what it needs will have an easier time getting it than a cell in isolation.

      ION* can also do things like donate electrons to free radicals (acting as an antioxidant), downregulate zonulin (the protein that weakens tight junctions), and diversify your gut microbiome by supporting the structure of your gut lining (where your microbiome lives).

      But the truly extraordinary thing about the "how" of ION*? It functions in all of these amazing ways inherently. ION* naturally works to give each cell what is needed and remove what is not. We have not synthesized any chemical compounds to seek out and identify what each of your cells need. In truth, we couldn't replicate this kind of inherent wisdom if we tried. Nature is the spark behind this innovative molecule. And it is as a nod to that very wisdom that we are so named, ION* Intelligence of Nature.

    • Why should I be taking ION* Gut Support?

      Currently, 80% of the population suffers from gas, bloating, indigestion, and heartburn, all stemming from poor gut health. But when you factor in inflammation that is caused by poor gut health, those are just the tip of the iceberg. Given the number of symptoms, conditions, and diseases that chronic inflammation is responsible for, it quickly becomes clear why maintaining your gut health is so important.

      So why do we suddenly need help maintaining our gut health? To start, overprescribed antibiotics, glyphosate damage, and a lost connection with our environment. Our microbiome is not thriving as it should, and neither are we. Rather than address a specific medical condition with a narrowly-targeted supplement, ION* Gut Support takes a holistic approach and helps maintain the strength of our immune system to create an environment that supports total body and mind health.

    • What are tight junctions?

      Tight junctions are the seals between cells which help to create a defensive barrier in the epithelial layer of your gut lining. They function to keep toxins and foreign particles out of the bloodstream while also allowing nutrients to enter. Tight junction integrity is at the foundation of health.

      Tight junctions are protected by the carbon and mineral metabolites of bacterial digestion. When the intestinal bacteria are balanced and thriving, this matrix of metabolites produces a strong enzyme defense system that protects the tight junctions from the toxin zonulin.

      Over the last sixty years, there has been a steady loss of biodiversity in our bowel bacterial ecosystem. Factory farming, processed foods, and widespread antibiotic use have all played major roles in this decline. However, the most potent of triggers for zonulin impact at the gut barrier is glyphosate, the most commonly used herbicide. Gluten is the most potent of naturally occurring triggers for zonulin production in our modern diet.

      ION* Gut Support functions as the answer to glyphosate and gluten impact at the gut lining by promoting increases in production of the enzymes that break down zonulin and thereby strengthen tight junctions.

    • What is the gut-brain connection?

      Recent science has called the gut our "second brain," or "Enteric Nervous System" (ENS). It consists of two thin layers of more than 100 million nerve cells that line our gastrointestinal tract, from our sinuses all the way to our rectum, and serves as a vast communication network. We now know that the majority of neurotransmitters, or "chemical messengers," such as serotonin and dopamine, are made in our gut lining, with very little being made in the brain comparatively. However, the production of these chemical messengers is dependent on the right bacteria, fungi, and even parasites and viruses (collectively known as the microbiome), being present in our gut.

    • What is glyphosate and why is it harmful?

      Glyphosate is the active ingredient in the most commonly used weed killers, including Roundup. These weed killers are used broadly in agriculture and found in varying quantities throughout our environment. The volume of usage of this herbicide has led to reports of significant levels of glyphosate in water, air, rainfall, and even human breast milk. The World Health Organization classified glyphosate as a "probable human carcinogen", and it is implicated in a wide variety of human health disorders.

      ION* Gut Support functions as a response to glyphosate and gluten impact by improving the gut lining's ability to keep out these detrimental elements and promoting increases in production of beneficial enzymes. ION* Gut Support promotes a healthy "firewall" in the gut and blood-brain barrier, to support a beneficial shift in the gut ecosystem as well as normal immune function. ION* Gut Support improves gut resilience to glyphosate within 16 minutes.

    • Is ION* FDA compliant?

      Yes! Our manufacturing and quality control teams adhere to all the FDA's current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMPs), and do regular testing on ION* Gut Support for bacterial contamination, heavy metals, and overall product composition.

      Further, third-party testing has shown ION* to be non-toxic on sensitive kidney cells, even at very high concentrations.

    • Is ION* vegan?

      Yes! All products in the ION* suite are vegan, naturally gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, latex-free, sulfite-free, preservative-free, non-GMO, and certified glyphosate residue free. They are all produced in a facility free of allergens, including peanuts and tree nuts.

    • Does ION* test for Prop 65 metals?

      In compliance with California's Prop 65 legislation, we test ION* for levels of mercury, lead, arsenic, and cadmium. It is important to note, however, that metals are found naturally in soil. In fact, there are heavy metals everywhere, from the air we breathe to the food we eat. For example, candy can have 100-6000 ppm lead, and root vegetables can easily have about 2 ppm lead. Fish bodies can have 1-4 ppm mercury and rice in the US can have over 0.5 ppm arsenic.

      Our limits are set low, and we typically see levels 10-fold less than those limits. The result? You would typically need to consume 100x the recommended dose to approach the Prop 65 No Significant Risk level.

      Please note: 1 ppm = 1 ug/ml

      Quality control limits graph

    • Could I be allergic to ION* Gut Support?

      ION* Gut Support has numerous naturally occurring trace minerals and amino acids in it. We are aware of the vulnerability to some of these elements that certain individuals have. However, the concentrations of these trace minerals are far below the concentrations seen in the daily intake of a healthy plant-based diet and never in the metallic form typically associated with sensitivity. Cucumbers, for example, are high in naturally occurring aluminum.

      Sensitivity to the ionic and organic minerals found in ION* Gut Support, therefore, is not common. Additionally, ION* Gut Support is sourced from plant-derived fossils and is routinely tested for contaminants. However, if you have an allergy to trace minerals, we recommend starting slowly with ION* Gut Support, as detailed under "Usage Instructions". If you believe you are experiencing an allergic reaction to ION* Gut Support, stop taking the product immediately, and consult your healthcare practitioner.

      As ION* Gut Support begins to strengthen the tight junctions in the gut lining, it is not uncommon to experience mild, temporary side effects such as constipation as full hydration is promoted. In these cases, the first and best response is to increase consumption of water and herbal teas. It may also be beneficial to take a slower approach. See under "Usage Instructions" for sensitive individuals.


      The clinical spectrum of signs and symptoms that have been attributed to the word "detox" are vast. If we consider the full term, "detoxification", we can bring some clarity to the process. The need to remove toxins is part of the body's natural defense, and a healthy body has vast mechanisms for toxin removal.

      Many people starting ION* Gut Support have noted almost immediate signs of toxin clearance from the body. Urine, sweat, breath, and skin in the case of mineral foot baths, can all reveal toxin clearance. This is the result of the extremely rapid changes in tight junction integrity as ION* Gut Support promotes functional tight junctions in the gut, blood vessels, kidney tubules, etc.

      To be clear, ION* Gut Support does not detoxify anything. The body's natural systems, once back online with intelligent membranes, produce all the natural detoxification pathways. If tight junction restoration throughout the system is the reason for the mobilization of toxins and subsequent removal (detoxification) from the body, there is no redistribution of the toxin to other tissues. The toxins are instead trafficked to appropriate clearance sites of urine, breath, and sweat.

    • For how long should I take ION* Gut Support?

      You should take ION* Gut Support as long as you are getting exposure to those environmental factors known to impact the tight junctions in the gut lining, including gluten, glyphosate, and antibiotics. Organic, non-GMO, and gluten-free foods are great. However, avoiding exposure to glyphosate is the bigger challenge, as it has been shown to be contaminating even our rainwater.

      As with most supplements, you can expect to receive benefit as long as you are taking ION* Gut Support, and for a residual period afterwards.

      Every day, month, and year that goes by offers new opportunities for more diversity, and a deeper reservoir of cellular communication. ION* Gut Support is not a one-time fix for anything; ION* Gut Support is the foundation for a lifestyle of connectivity to the nature around you.

    • Does ION* Gut Support expire?

      Through lab testing, we know that ION* Gut Support stays safe on kidney tubule cells and efficacious in strengthening intestinal tissue tight junctions beyond six years. We now use a "Best By" date, six years from manufacture. Prior to that we used a "Manufactured On" date (MFG ON). If you have one of those bottles, your ION* Gut Support (what was previously RESTORE) will be good for at least six years past that date.

    • Is ION* Gut Support similar to other fulvic or humic extracts/substances?

      ION* Gut Support is a balanced formula, comprised of a very unique family of carbon molecules with oxygen-binding sites that are produced by bacteria when they digest nutrients. We extract our primary ingredient from ancient soil that contains humic and fulvic substances.

      Fulvate (what ION* utilizes) has not been acidified like fulvic acid and exists naturally in our source material, Leonardite.

      Oxygen atoms in fulvate molecules are partnered (chelated) with metal ions. Metal bridges between molecules allow electron transfer both within and across molecules which helps facilitate the communication aspect of ION*, what we refer to as redox signaling. This ability to enhance communication at the cellular level is what differentiates us from your average fulvic acid.

      When fulvate is acidified, oxygen atoms in fulvic acid are bound to hydrogen instead of metals. Hydrogen does not support electron transfer between molecules and therefore may not facilitate redox signaling.

    • What is ION* Skin Support?

      ION* Skin Support is an all-natural, soil-derived spray utilizing our innovative Terrahydrite® blend, combined with various bio-available minerals including Silicon as Monomethylsilanetriol, Zinc Gluconate, Copper Gluconate, and Magnesium Citrate. ION* Skin Support is scientifically proven to strengthen your barrier against toxins, support a healthy response to the sun, and improve hydration. It is microbiome-friendly as well as fragrance and dye-free.

    • How is ION* Skin Support different from ION* Gut Support?

      In addition to the humic extract blend utilized in our Gut Support formula, ION* Skin Support includes bioavailable Silicon as Monomethylsilanetriol, Zinc Gluconate, Copper Gluconate, and Magnesium Citrate. It is a synergistic blend specially formulated for keratinocytes, the primary cells which form the skin barrier.

    • What does ION* Skin Support do?

      ION* Skin Support is designed to support skin function as a barrier and as a balanced terrain for your microbiome. By supporting a terrain that can host hundreds of millions of beneficial microbiota, you can help foster your innate gut-brain-skin connection.

      ION* Skin Support also helps defend against toxins by maintaining the tight junctions in the skin, supports a healthy response to the sun by lowering the amount of reactive oxygen species that result from exposure to UVB rays, and improves overall skin hydration by supporting your microbiome.

    • How will I know if it's working?

      You may notice an improvement in texture, elasticity, hydration, smoothness, or circulation and/or a reduction in redness after a few weeks of regular ION* Skin Support use.

      Further, when your skin functions properly, it supports many other functions, as the skin is deeply connected to the hormone system, the immune system, and the nervous system. Because of these connections, you may notice benefits that go far beyond what you expected. Pay attention to your overall sense of wellbeing as you use ION* Skin Support.

    • For how long should I use ION* Skin Support?

      With ION* supporting your body's barrier protection from UVB rays and environmental toxins, it should be used as long as those damaging elements are present. As ION* is a water-based product, it is quickly absorbed; use twice daily as instructed.

    • How long until I will notice results from ION* Skin Support?

      Noticeable changes in the skin vary and are dependent on your overall health, your skin health and your personal awareness of its appearance. Irritated or inflamed areas of your skin are where you will most likely notice the impact of ION* Skin Support first. Skin with callouses, or thick layers of skin, will likely be where noticeable changes will take the longest. Noticeable changes will also vary with skin age and exposure to sunlight and toxins.

    • How long does one bottle last?

      This can be a difficult question to answer with usage varying widely. However, based on an average use regimen for one person, an 8oz spray bottle should last about 10 weeks and a 3.4oz bottle should last roughly 1 month.

    • Can I overuse ION* Skin Support?

      Yes, applying ION* Skin Support substantially more than twice daily may result in some irritation. Further, it's important to remember that more is not necessarily better. We have no reason to believe that you will receive any more benefit from overuse of ION* Skin Support. Thorough coverage, twice daily, will provide the support your skin needs.

    • How long should I wait before applying makeup or other skincare products?

      You can apply makeup or lotions immediately following use of ION* Skin Support. We recommend either letting it dry naturally or gently patting dry and then applying other products.

    • Will ION* Skin Support reduce signs of aging and/or wrinkles?

      We cannot say at this time. We will, however, be carrying out studies to validate ION* Skin Support's effect on wrinkles and signs of aging. Stay tuned!

      What we know now is that ION* Gut Support, our flagship liquid mineral supplement, has been shown to increase lysine production, which is critical to the formation of collagen. Collagen is key in helping to promote skin elasticity and strength.

    • Is this a sunscreen? Can I use instead of sunscreen?

      No. ION* Skin Support does not physically block UV rays or chemically alter our response to them. It should not be used as a sunscreen.

      With daily use, however, ION* will help to balance the microbiome which supports healthy lipids (natural oils and waxes), making our skin less vulnerable to damaging rays. ION* Skin Support helps to achieve a balanced state of ROS which means less ROS is acting to damage and kill cells.

    • Can I use this on my baby's diaper rash?

      No, we do not recommend ION* Skin Support for babies due their highly sensitive skin.

    • Why can't children under 3 years old use ION* Skin Support?

      The skin of infants is structurally different. The cells are smaller and the collagen fibers are thinner. The skin is more permeable and prone to sensitivity. Since ION* Skin Support contains trace levels of various naturally occurring minerals, we do not recommend its use for children under 3 as they are simply more likely to be sensitive.

    • Can I use ION* Skin Support on eczema, rosacea, vitiligo, or any other specific skin conditions?

      Because the skin is influenced by the state of the nervous and endocrine systems as well as the microbiome, the cause of skin conditions is quite complex and depends on the individual.

      While we cannot make claims related to specific skin conditions, we suggest applying ION* Skin Support to your external barrier as well as taking ION* Gut Support to promote immune health inside and out.

      Many skin conditions are an immune response to environmental toxins or insults (like UV rays) resulting in inflammation. ION* Gut Support bolsters your immune system by improving intracellular communication. ION* Skin Support strengthens the barrier of epithelial cells that separates you from the outside world, improving your body's ability to respond to environmental toxins and/or damaging levels of UV rays.

    • What is ION* Gut Support For Pets and what does it do?

      ION* Gut Support For Pets is a liquid supplement that supplies the first line of defense against everyday exposure to environmental and food-borne toxins. It is an all-natural humic extract derived from ancient soil.

      The gut lining is a barrier working to protect your pet from toxic substances such as glyphosate, gluten, and other foreign particles. But just as importantly, it functions to allow the passage of beneficial nutrients. Preserving the integrity of this barrier is key to health. Instead of feeding the microbiome with various bacterial strains, as you would get from a probiotic, ION* Gut Support For Pets works via redox signaling to maintain tight junction integrity in the epithelial layer of the gut lining.

      ION* facilitates nutrient absorption, promotes kidney health, and helps with the inflammatory response promoting immune function and alleviating environmental allergy sensitivities.

    • How is ION* Gut Support for Pets different from the human ION* Gut Support formula?

      ION* Gut Support For Pets is specially formulated for canines and felines and includes silicon. Silicon, not commonly found in pet food, supports structure in the body from the cellular level to the muscular-skeletal level. It is an essential element for healthy connective tissues, especially in the bone and cartilage of animals.
