Note: In 2019, RESTORE was renamed to ION*Biome's ION*Gut Health.  In 2021, it was renamed again to ION* Gut Support.

From my perspective, the importance of gut health cannot be overstated in any health optimization program. Leaky gut and intestinal hyperpermeability seem to be almost universal in today's society.  The insults we expose our bodies to on a daily basis are countless.

I first learned about ION* Gut Support (then called RESTORE) several years ago in 2015 at Autism One.  I have used ION* Gut Support personally at various stages as a component of my health-optimization program.

According the the manufacturer's web site, ION* Gut Support is "a mineral supplement that goes beyond the scope of probiotics to support gut strength, mental clarity, and planetary health. Think of it as the missing piece in the human health puzzle – the way to get closer with nature and reject toxicity’s advances."

"ION* Gut Support increases the body’s production of beneficial enzymes through redox signaling (cellular communication).  Those beneficial enzymes strengthen 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."

In terms of potential benefits, their website suggests it may help "boost immunity, alleviate sensitivity, enhance mental clarity, and support digestion".

This doesn't mean that we get a free ticket to eating gluten and ingesting glyphosate, but when these do occur, the impact to our body may be minimized.  I personally think of it like having anti-virus software on my computer.  They call ION* Gut Support the "gut's firewall of protection".  Anything that can help minimize the impact of gluten, GMOs, and glyphosate on my health is something that gets my attention.  

Over time, it became more clear to me that the potential benefits of ION* Gut Support extend beyond the gut.  These concepts were discussed in a podcast I did with Dr. Bush to learn more about ION* Gut Support (then called RESTORE) and about hydration.  Dr. Bush is one of the brightest minds in medicine, and I really enjoyed learning more about his work from our discussion.
