At ION*Biome, we have deeply rooted respect for both the Intelligence of Nature and the science that validates it. Dr. Zach Bush and team utilize a state-of-the-art lab to study and substantiate not only the safety, but the efficacy of the entire ION*Biome line.

The following papers demonstrate how Terrahydrite®, the main active ingredient in ION*Biome products, improves tight junction integrity.
  • Blood-Brain Barrier Response to Terrahydrite and Intestinal Gluten Injury
    "Blood-Brain Barrier Response to Terrahydrite and Intestinal Gluten Injury" shows not only the connection between the microbiome and the gut and blood-brain barrier systems, but also demonstrates the improved effect that Terrahydrite® has on the blood-brain barrier.
  • The Effects of ION*Gut Health Dietary Supplement on Markers of Intestinal Permeability and Immune System Function in Healthy Subjects
    "The Effects of ION*Gut Health Dietary Supplement on Markers of Intestinal Permeability and Immune System Function in Healthy Subjects; A Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Clinical Trial" validates the marked effect that ION*Gut Health has on reducing zonulin, IL-6 (an inflammatory marker), and glyphosate in adult humans over a two-week course.
  • Protective Effects of Lignite Extract Supplement on Intestinal Barrier Function in Glyphosate-Mediated Tight Junction Injury
    "Protective Effects of Lignite Extract Supplement on Intestinal Barrier Function in Glyphosate-Mediated Tight Junction Injury" establishes the capacity of Terrahydrite® to block glyphosate-mediated injury in small intestinal and colon epithelial membranes.
  • Protection against Gluten-mediated Tight Junction Injury with a Novel Lignite Extract Supplement
    "Protection against Gluten-mediated Tight Junction Injury with a Novel Lignite Extract Supplement" reveals that the addition of Terrahydrite® stabilizes tight junction integrity even in the face of gluten exposure.
