RESTORE Gut Health is now ION* Gut Support
We captured lightning in a bottle with RESTORE, and while we have evolved our brand, we have not altered what is actually in the bottle. The original RESTORE formula is still at the heart of our entire product suite and Dr. Zach Bush, our CEO and founder, is still at the heart of our mission.
Our new brand, ION*Intelligence of Nature,
brings that mission to life with clearer messaging, more transparent labeling, and more sustainable packaging! Restore your connection to whole body health with ION* Gut Support and the latest in our microbiome-friendly lineup, ION* Skin Support!
How ION* Works
Our entire product line starts nurturing connection at the literal foundation of health, with cell-to-cell integrity.
"A long time ago, I came to the conclusion that even though certain diseases or illnesses ran in a family, it didn't mean it had to run in me."

RESTORE Gut Health is now ION*Gut Support
What does ION* Gut Support (previously RESTORE Gut Health) do?
ION* Gut Support (previously RESTORE Gut Health) 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 (previously RESTORE Gut Health) 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.
What are the ingredients in ION* Gut Support (previously RESTORE Gut Health)?
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 (previously RESTORE Gut Health) similar to probiotics or enzymes?
ION* Gut Support (previously RESTORE Gut Health) 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 (previously RESTORE Gut Health) 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.
