About us

The Institute for Optimum Nutrition (ION) is a forward-looking institution and our dedicated, expert team are continuously looking for new ways to deliver our services with a mission to "educate and enthuse, instilling optimum nutrition as the foundation of health for all"

We work with, and train, people from around the globe, not just those based in the UK.

Through all our services we promote the principles of optimum nutrition as complementary to orthodox medicine, focusing on prevention of disorders through healthy eating and reducing reliance on remedial medicine.

Through our work and as a charity, we increase awareness and provide evidence informed information to the public on the benefits of nutrition to health and wellbeing and do this in a number of ways:

  • Professional nutritional therapy training courses - BSc (Hons) Nutritional Therapy (for those wanting to train as a nutritional therapist or NTs looking to top up to degree) and the Graduate Diploma in Integrative Functional Nutrition (for allied health professionals, ready to add nutrition to their skillset).
  • Accredited professional CPD courses
  • Innovative Optimum Nutrition Clinic
  • Brain Bio Centre
  • Informative monthly newsletter and the Optimum Nutrition magazine
