ION Kids has been discontinued and instead has been combined with the adult ION Gut Health line which features directions for children ages 3 and up.
ION* Biome for kids (formerly RESTORE) is unlike any supplement on the market. Made in the US, ION*Biome is a soil-derived, scientifically-backed mineral supplement that has been shown in lab studies to strengthen tight junctions in the gut wall, our firewall against toxins entering the body. ION* Biome helps create a biological environment for good gut bacteria to grow and flourish, to support improvement of overall health.
ION* Biome is a new generation, earth-derived supplement that promotes an optimal gut environment. It is not a probiotic. It is not a prebiotic. Rather, it is a carbon rich, alkaline liquid, with aqueous humic substances, purified water, and less than 1% mineral amino acid complexes. With 70% of the immune system located in the gut, this optimal gut environment leads to great gut health. ION* Biome delivers a balanced family of bacterial metabolites to promote a healthy firewall of tight junctions in the gut wall and blood brain barrier. ION*Biome provides the communication network to support a beneficial shift in the gut ecosystem, which supports normal immune function.
Additionally, ION* Biome 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* Biome 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, which supplies the first line of defense against everyday exposures to environmental and food-borne factors.
ION* Biome creates an optimal environment in the gut membrane for good gut bacteria to flourish. Good gut bacteria protect our immune system, because about 60-70% of our immune system is in the gut membrane system – the gastrointestinal-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT), and the GALT produces 80% of the body’s antibodies.
ION* Biome was developed by scientists trained at some of the most prestigious universities in the country, such as the University of Virginia, Duke University, and the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health. It is a scientifically proven soil-derived mineral supplement designed to support protection of the intestinal walls and provide a framework for the bacteria in the gut to communicate.

Certain “binder” supplements such as clay, charcoal, Iodine and zeolites – if usage instructions recommend taking them away from any nutrition, food or supplements, 30 minutes is a minimum separation time from ION* Biome.
Please note — ION*Biome supports healthy gut membranes. This returns expected drug absorption to normal levels, and may improve bioavailability of your supplements and food nutrients. If you are on a medication that requires blood level testing to adjust the dose, such as blood thinners or seizure medications, you should discuss ION*Biome with your doctor, who may want to get testing done within a week of taking ION*Biome, as you would do with a diet change or adding other mineral supplements.
