Ora Organic was born out of a love for plant-based nutrition, ethical sourcing, and helping others be well. Ora comes from the New Zealand Māori-language greeting Kia Ora, which literally translates to be well. And that's what the founders Will, Erica, Sebastian & Ronald set out to do to help you be well.
They create products that they take themselves, and that means they only use plant-based ingredients, source organic wherever possible, and have the highest testing standards for all of our products.
Research indicates that the minimum daily serving of probiotics which supports optimal digestive and immune system function is 10 billion CFUs [1, 2].
Probiotics are commonly added to supplements for digestive and immune support, and they are often recommended when people are experiencing diarrhea due to antibiotics [3-5]. Similarly, probiotics are frequently suggested for people who frequently experience intestinal problems due to issues that are related to the improper digestion of food or nutrients .
Research has demonstrated that prebiotics enhance the growth and activity of probiotics. Accordingly, prebiotics (e.g., inulin) are being added to more probiotic supplements . Probiotics improve the body's response to allergens, especially cat and dog hair, pollen, and dust mites, by thickening the viscosity of the airway's mucosal lining and disrupting the production of pro-inflammatory proteins . This type of enhanced immunity and reduced sensitivity to allergens is dramatically improved and sustained when supplementation starts at an early age [3, 10].
Probiotics help improve the body's ability to degrade cholesterol as well as nutrient absorption, both of which enhance weight control [13, 14].
Probiotic supplementation also improves the body's response to stress and supports optimal hormone levels .
Digestive health [1-4]; Immune system health [1-4]
Probiotics enhance the health of the digestive tract by improving the levels of good bacteria in the gut . In addition, to disrupting the growth of harmful bacteria, fungi, viruses, probiotics release enzymes and other substances that have antimicrobial activity . Several of the enzymes also aid the digestion of food and this reduces the occurrence of food-related stomach problems (e.g., constipation, gas, bloating, diarrhea) . Furthermore, probiotics heighten the breakdown of nutrients, which means that a higher concentration of essential nutrients reaches the bloodstream and different areas of the body .
Probiotics also strengthen the immune system by disrupting pro-inflammatory protein activity, stimulating the release of immunoglobulins, and heightening the body's natural antioxidant potential . They also promote the proper balance of anti-inflammatory and pro-inflammatory proteins .
Probiotics support proper digestion and an active lifestyle by increasing the number of good bacteria in the gut . This targets digestive issues that may cause bloating, gas, diarrhea, constipation, etc.; all of which may lead to decreased physical activity . Similarly, probiotics release enzymes that disrupt the growth and activity of harmful microorganisms which can also cause illnesses or infections that subsequently reduce activity levels [3, 13-15].
In addition, probiotics enhance the body's ability to absorb nutrients, including vitamin C, calcium, and iron, which are known to boost energy levels [1, 16].
Prebiotics (e.g., inulin fiber) provide nutrients that enhance the growth and activity of the probiotics .
