How ION* works
ION* Gut Support seals cells in the gut lining, helping to keep toxins out of your body and strengthening the terrain upon which your microbiome can diversify.
Benefits of 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.
Ingredient spotlight Terrahydrite®, the innovative blend used across the entire ION* line, contains two simple ingredients: humic extract (from Ancient Soil) and purified water. The ancient soil from which we extract is rich in bacterial metabolites (not bacteria), which are the byproducts of bacterial digestion. These metabolites combine with trace minerals to create fulvate, a family of molecules that is at the heart of our science.
Instead of supplementing a diet with missing vitamins or minerals, fulvate acts more like a signal booster, helping your cells to communicate with each other and bacteria. But these metabolites are multifunctional. Beyond communication, they also carry essential minerals and nutrient into cells that need them. And once in the cell, they can chelate (bind to) waste products and remove them. The vast and varied mechanisms of fulvate work together to naturally facilitate health at the literal foundation: the cell.
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.
Directions for use
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.
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.
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.
