RESTORE Gut Health is now ION*Gut + Microbiome

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.

Restore is now ION*
  • Intelligence Of Nature
  • Our new brand, ION* Intelligence of Nature,

    more fully 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 + Microbiome!

  • How it works

    ION* Gut + Microbiome is a liquid supplement designed to support your gut health against the adversity of your everyday environment. ION* Gut + Microbiome triggers your body to seal cells in the gut lining; this seal helps to keep toxins out of your body and strengthens the terrain upon which your microbiome can diversify. Good gut health is the foundation to addressing many health issues, as 70 - 80% of the immune system originates in the gut.

"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."

  • Frequently asked questions

    Need more info? Here are a few of our most frequently asked questions.

    • What does ION* Gut +Microbiome (previously RESTORE Gut Health) do?

      ION*Gut + Microbiome (previously RESTORE Gut Health) supports the body's natural production of beneficial enzymes through redox signaling (cellular communication). Those beneficial enzymes support the tight junctions (the seals between cells) in our gut lining - the barrier protecting us from toxic substances like glyphosate and gluten while allowing the entry of beneficial nutrients.

      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 + Microbiome (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 + Microbiome (previously RESTORE Gut Health)?

      Humic Extract (from Ancient Soil) and Purified Water.

      Our 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 + Microbiome (previously RESTORE Gut Health) similar to probiotics or enzymes?

      ION* Gut + Microbiome (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 + Microbiome (previously RESTORE Gut Health) is unique in that it enables the body to naturally enhance 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 practitioner concerning the addition or removal of probiotics and digestive enzymes in your personal regimen; as each person is unique, we cannot make individual recommendations.
