ORA ORGANIC - Plant Based Nutrition: Vitamins, Supplements & More.
Updated: Feb 18
When my Mom aka Mama Joy was getting radiation (post breast lumpectomy) we were looking into additional clean supplements for her to take. I wanted to find the best supplement powders that Mama Joy could add in her smoothies and Purity Coffee. She was looking for something in addition to eating healthy that would also help strengthen her bones since she has osteoporosis and arthritis. I too was getting malnourished from stress, so I was ready to find a clean protein powder since many other brands have heavy metals and other toxins in them.
As per usual, I was listening to Naturopathic Oncologist, Dr. Christian Gonzalez's podcast, Heal Thy Self where he reviewed various protein powders and supplements and the one that stuck out to me on his clean list was the plant based supplement brand, Ora Organic. I followed this up by sending an email to Ora Organic asking for their suggestions. The lovely Kelly was quick to respond to my email and said,
"I'd recommend our Aloe Gorgeous collagen-boosting powder and/or our So Lean & So Clean protein powder. Coupled together, this is a great product to help the body fuel itself and its muscles more effectively, while also catering to bone health by way of the ingredients in the collagen booster. :) My favorite flavors are the vanilla protein powder and the chocolate collagen-boosting powder. Both products are a great option for plant-based folks, and they're easy on the gut as well."
"Radiation can certainly take a toll on the gut, so these two will be sure to get her back to solid ground. I'm excited to see how these work out for your mom. Please do keep us updated!"
I share this with you, but of course, with anything, when it comes to your personal health, history, allergies etc. you should always check with your physician first as well before incorporating something new into your system, which is what we did as well with Mama Joy's physicians.
Ora Organic creates the cleanest plant-based supplements for sports nutrition, beauty, gut health and more. Headquartered in Austin, Texas, the Ora Organic brand was founded on quality, ethics, innovation, and utmost care for people and the planet. Ora Organic is creating the ultimate experience in health and wellness: from high-quality sourcing and rigorous testing to delicious flavors and premium packaging. Ora is a conscious brand that reflects the principles I value — trustworthy, well-researched, innovative, and ultimately better for people and the planet. And of course, since day one: completely plant-based!
‘Ora’ comes from the New Zealand Maori greeting ‘Kia Ora’ which literally translates to ‘be well’. That’s exactly what Ora’s Founders Will, Erica, Seb & Ron set out to do - to help you be well.
Ora’s Founders created Ora Organic out of a love for quality nutrition, ethical sourcing, and helping others be well. They’re all doing their best to be healthy, and while diet, exercise, and routine, are at the core of health, supplements can make a difference too.
Will, Erica, Seb & Ron create products that they themselves would take, and that means they never include anything artificial, only use plant-based ingredients, and source organic wherever possible. If you care about quality, you’ve come to the right place.
Mama Joy and I are currently taking the following Ora Organic supplements and along with healthy eating habits, we are feeling amazing. Mama Joy just got her bloodwork done and her labs were awesome! I will be going for my annual physical in December and doing my labs at that time.
We both take the Probiotic Capsules if we don't have a smoothie. We also take Digestive Enzymes Powder prior to eating at a restaurant where the ingredients may not be organic or as clean as we would like. Digestive Enzymes are basically a cleaner Pepto Bismol (which is beyond gross - just read the back label).
We also alternate when we make our smoothies adding in the Aloe Gorgeous collagen-boosting powder and/or the So Lean & So Clean protein powder. I always toss in extra spinach or kale in our smoothies too and they are both beyond delicious! Even Papa Ed likes them too and he's a tough critic!
I have my eye on a few other items that I'd like to try: Apple Cider Vinegar Tablets, Sleep Support, Golden Milk Latte Powder, Vitamin D Tablets. Mama Joy is interested in trying these: Hair, Skin & Nails, Turmeric Curcumin Tablets and Immunity Boosting Capsules.
Below, I broke down all the supplement categories for you. Just click on any of them to learn more details on Ora Organic's website. Be sure to also chat with their experts as well if you have additional questions! And lastly, I listed a bunch of Ora's mouth watering recipes that you can make with the protein powders and such...
