CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va., Sept. 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- *Seraphic Group, the fast-growing, future-thinking health and technology company on a mission to restore our planet's natural cycles of human health and ecology, today announces that its best-selling RESTORE line of products that promote gut-brain health is now ION*Biome. In addition, *Seraphic is proud to announce the appointments of its first-ever Chief Marketing Officer and Creative Director – positions which are held by Justin Micklish and Nick Rodgers, respectively.
ION is the acronym for "Intelligence of Nature", the very source of the brand's inspiration and healing properties. Biome represents the source of the molecular intelligence in the dietary supplement line that is derived from the metabolites of bacteria and fungi that thrived in the soils of Earth 60 million years ago. The new brand of ION*Biome offers a more robust platform for the expansion of its product pipeline and improved communication and education avenues for the public and health practitioners alike.
ION*Gut Health is a liquid supplement that goes beyond probiotics to strengthen the gut lining, improving communication between the gut and brain and protecting the bloodstream from toxic substances such as glyphosate, gluten and other foreign particles that can compromise one's immune system. ION*Sinus is a parallel product that offers the same functional ingredients to the nasal sinuses via a nasal spray for daily sinus health support.
The evolution to ION*Biome was led by Accept & Proceed, a UK-based creative strategy and branding agency whose client list ranges from Nike to Jet Propulsion Laboratories. ION*Biome will have a completely fresh brand identity, distinguishing it in the marketplace with a constant nod to nature – including a crisp, bold font; a color palette inspired by natural elements; and icons which sit alongside text to add a visual layer of product education. Alongside this visual rebrand, products including ION*Gut Health, ION*Gut Health For Kids, ION*Gut Health for Pets and ION*Sinus were renamed to elevate their key benefit and provide maximize visibility on shelf.
"The evolution of RESTORE to ION*Biome marks an important chapter for us as we continue to expand to an international community that finds itself in more need than ever for all-natural, non-drug solutions to modern human health," says Dr. Zach Bush, MD, CEO, *Seraphic Group, Inc. "It all started with the concept of a new paradigm in gut health: harness the molecular intelligence of diverse microbiome populations to finally end the probiotic era that is increasingly recognized to limit microbiome diversity in humans and animals. ION*Biome supports biodiversity within the gut and sinus environments which is increasingly understood to be the primary foundation for human and animal health."
