What is ION Gut?
ION Gut is a unique and ground breaking product for healing the gut mucosa developed by Dr. Zach Bush. The gut lining is easily damaged, and ION Gut is unique in its ability to restore the tight junctions of the gut which maintain healthy regulatory function.
ION Gut has been shown both in the laboratory and clinically to help support the functioning of the gut barrier and improve gut health by strengthening tight junction cells. In experiments, toxins like herbicides and gluten have been shown to degrade the gut barrier. ION Gut has been shown to promote the strengthening of the tight junction gut barrier in small and large gut membrane cells for an optimal gut environment.
All natural and soil derived, ION* Gut + Microbiome goes beyond probiotics to empower your gut microbiome’s natural ability to defend against environmental toxins and drive health from within.
Stress weakens the immune system.
ION*Gut Health (formerly RESTORE) works at the gut lining, where 70% of your immune system resides, to strengthen your barrier function and defend against environmental toxins.

ION*Gut Health is a gut-strengthening, brain-boosting mineral supplement sourced from 60-million-year-old soil that naturally supports microbiome balance.
ION Gut has been shown both in the laboratory and clinically to help support the functioning of the gut barrier and improve gut health by strengthening tight junction cells. In experiments, toxins like herbicides and gluten have been shown to degrade the gut barrier. ION Gut has been shown to promote the strengthening of the tight junction gut barrier in small and large gut membrane cells for an optimal gut environment. Tight junctions are the special protein strands that lace cells together into a continuous membrane, creating an intelligent barrier, a firewall that extends from the sinus cavities to the colon. When tight junctions degrade, leaks in this barrier overwhelm immune system surveillance, which must generate an antibody for every category of intruder that leaks through the wall. 70% of the immune system is on the other side of that membrane. If it is busy tracking intruders, the immune system never gets to other priorities. With ION Gut helping our gut lining, our immune system can return to regeneration and repair. Since your brain is listening to your gut, you’ll relax too!
The main element in ION Gut is the terrahydrite extract also known as lignite extract. Lignite comes from decomposed prehistoric matter. The lignite extract is composed of millions of what are nicknamed 'carbon snowflakes' derived from ancient soil ecosystems. As plants decompose, they first form peat, which then turns into humate, then lignite, then leonardite and finally to coal. All of these are rich in carbon. One of the differences between all of these elements is the amount of time and pressure have been applied to them. In the human body a small amount can be used to get your communication network running efficiently. Bacteria communicate in the same way your cells do, through moving patterns of charges called redox signaling. Think of ION Gut as a liquid switchboard, allowing millions of messages to simultaneously flow through the matrix, promoting regulation and balance throughout the body.
ION*Gut Health goes beyond other supplements to support your wellbeing at a foundational level. By laying that foundation with ION*Gut Health, you aren't just supplementing; you're supporting. It supports the body's production of beneficial enzymes through redox signalling (cellular communication).
Some forms of communication cannot be seen or heard. They happen on such a microscopic level, that what is diligently working for us is going completely unnoticed.
One device of nature’s innate ability to communicate is the microbiome. A collection of bacteria, fungi, and even parasites that exists on and within each of us, the microbiome is what helps facilitate communication and connection between us and the natural world.
Bacteria is not the enemy. In fact, you are mostly microbes with at least 10 times as many microbial cells as human cells. Further, your microbiome is not set. It is constantly changing and adapting to new environments. The things you eat, places you go, and air you breathe all contribute to its diversity and ultimately your health.
But it’s not all about size. The true weight of your microbiome cannot be measured (although they think in total it’s roughly 5 pounds).Your microbiome is essentially a collection of microscopic communicators, helping to digest food, regulate immune function, and produce essential vitamins and neurotransmitters that help with mood. In essence, most of your health is depending on a well-balanced (and fluent) microbiome.
A balanced microbiome communicates with the intestinal cells and prevents disease-causing bacteria from sticking to the gut lining. A dysfunctional, unbalanced microbiome, on the other hand, contributes to inflammation, digestive issues, brain fog, and too many diseases to name. This is known as gut dysbiosis.
Tight junction function = a strong gut lining = a healthy environment for microbes to live = a balanced microbiome = strong communication between you and the natural world = a healthy and thriving state of being.
In summary, ION Gut works in the follow ways:
- Supports membrane integrity and give your immune system a chance to rest!
- Gives the bacteria the terrain they need to communicate, diversify, and deliver micronutrients, thereby promoting better hydration and nutrition.
- Establishes a healthy spectrum of signals radiating from the gut microbiome (in other words, the bacterial balance in the gut) to every cell in your body. Genetic expression, though epigenetics, is hugely influenced by the signals from the microbiome.
Purified water, Terrahydrite® (Aqueous humic substances), and less than 1% mineral amino acid complexes.
Take 5 ml (a teaspoon) three times a day (before meals if you can).
Start with 5 drops three times per day and gradually increase to optimal serving.
Suggested Usage - for sensitive people
Please note, recommended usage is different to the manufacturers. Firstly, the label recommends taking it on an empty stomach 30 minutes before food. However it is better with food for the first few weeks for sensitive individuals. Secondly be patient, and start very slowly.
First week. Take 1 drop per day
Second week, 1 drop 3 x per day
Third week 2 drops 3 x per day
Fourth week 3 drops 3 x per day
Fifth week increase to 5-6 drops 3 x per day
Sixth week, take 1 teaspoon 3 x per day
Thereafter stay on this dosage. If you are not improving after a month on this dosage, increase to 1 tablespoon 3 x per day.
