Your Guide to Optimal
Learn how to make the most of Trust Your Gut pre + probiotic capsules - this page has everything you need!
When & how to take
Don’t worry about finding the “perfect” time of day. Simply choose a time that works for you and aim to keep it consistent - most of our customers prefer to take in the morning with breakfast.
Our capsule-swallowing trick: Put a capsule in your mouth, drink some water, and tilt your head forward before swallowing. The air in the capsules will help them float to the back of your throat and should make the capsules easier to swallow.
What to expect
After a few doses your digestive system starts to regulate and you experience less bloating and more regularity thanks to those trusty Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium probiotics.
Over time these strains are known to help you maintain regular bowel movements, support a healthy immune system, and even give your mood a boost.
3 Tips to Boost the Benefits
Studies suggest that it can take 3-6 weeks of consistent probiotic use in order to see improvements in bloating, constipation, or other digestive symptoms.*
Start implementing these three tips today to start seeing improvements right away.
Eat Sufficient Fiber
Make sure that vegetables take up half of your plate, include 1 tbsp of flax seed in your diet daily, and use more plant-based proteins like legumes and nuts.
Check Your Labels
Make sure that the foods you’re eating are free from ingredients and additives that might trigger inflammation or bloating. As a general rule, try to avoid artificial flavors, colors, gums & emulsifiers.
Stress reduces the body’s ability to digest food well, leading to irritation in the digestive tract and bloating. Journal or do another practice to help release stressful thoughts, or learn meditation or other mindfulness practices to help reduce stress.

Once a day.
We include a substantial amount of prebiotics in each serving. Prebiotics are a special type of fiber that helps support the health and growth of beneficial Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium bacteria in the gut, and a high prebiotic content is crucial to the efficacy of your probiotic.
We hand-pick highly-researched probiotic strains that are resistant to stomach acid and can colonize the small and large intestines, where they have their greatest health benefits.
Our probiotic count per serving is guaranteed until the expiration of your product - because potency matters!
Frequently asked questions
There’s no need for refrigeration. Similar to active dry yeast used in baking, our probiotics are freeze-dried, so they survive without the need for refrigeration.
No, we don’t coat our capsules. Instead, we’ve created our probiotic with acid-resistant strains to help them be successful through your digestive tract.
We always recommend checking with your doctor before adding any supplements when pregnant or breastfeeding, though many of our customers enjoy Trust Your Gut probiotic and prebiotic during this time. There is evidence to suggest that taking probiotics during pregnancy may reduce the risk of dermatitis and eczema in infants .
Here’s what Trust Your Gut delivers, and what we think all other probiotics should as well (spoiler alert: they don’t.)
1. CFU at time of expiration versus time of manufacturing
When buying a probiotic, one of the most important things to look for is whether the product and brand is willing to explicitly state that their CFU count is guaranteed through expiration - not just at time of manufacturing.
If a probiotic isn’t willing to guarantee their CFU count through expiration, that means you aren’t guaranteed to receive the probiotics that you’re paying for are actually alive when you’re taking your probiotic supplement. Ora’s packaging is also designed to protect the integrity of the probiotics against moisture.
2. Prebiotic content
Ora’s probiotic contains 4x more prebiotics than over-hyped competitors. We sourced our prebiotics from one of the most powerful plant sources of prebiotics in the world - Organic Jerusalem Artichoke.
Ora’s Trust Your Gut promises a true synbiotic mixture of proven probiotics with a high quantity of organic prebiotics and actually delivers on that promise.
3. Diverse science-backed probiotic strains (with strain transparency!)
Ora has selected only the best and most scientifically backed probiotic strains for inclusion in its probiotic products. Many common probiotic supplement companies make big claims, but refuse to share the actual strain identifiers on their label. They only cite generic strain names.
Ora will tell you exactly which studied strains are included in its probiotic products, so you know you are getting the very best. Ora also uses acid resistant strains that survive the gut.
4. Years of trust and real customer results
Ora’s Trust Your Gut is a top seller with worldwide distribution. It’s sold on Ora’s website, but is also a top seller on Amazon with thousands of real 5-star reviews and sold in leading nationwide retailers like Ulta Beauty and The Vitamin Shoppe.
Ora tests each batch of probiotics for safety and quality and transparently publishes those test results for consumers to see.
Poorly formulated probiotics with lower quality standards can cause several nasty side effects - or simply not work for customers. Those companies may go to great lengths to hide, suppress, or alter their negative reviews. Some don’t put reviews on their websites at all.
With Ora, you can see the real life-changing impact that Trust Your Gut is having on actual customers. You can read real, unfiltered reviews so that you can make the best choice for your health. This transparency is a big reason why Ora’s probiotic has been a trusted leader for 7+ years.
