Orgaia scientists work on the prevention of ageing pathologies in the following areas:

As we age, maintaining a fully functioning immune system is critical to reduce inflammation and protect and maintain our health and organism. Creating a state of balance and biostasis in our body is crucial to avoid certain diseases associated with a lack of equilibrium in our organism that trigger negative immune responses, allergies or inflammation. Orgaia’s scientists have years of research and several scientific papers and patents which focus on the field of increasing the immune function and decrease inflammatory activity to maintain health and delay the onset of key pathologies.

Maintaining a balanced brain and cognitive function is vital for a personal, professional and social life. Age related disease such as dementia and alzheimer have become a critical public health issue and is a major area for concern of most governments due to the large costs of treating these patients. Orgaia works on developing natural ingredients that act at neuronal level with anti-oxidative function for various areas of brain maintenance while improving mental energy, focus, attention and also brain relaxation.

Obesity and diabetes are major epidemics of our modern era fully associated with bad nutrition and leading to major chronic disease of the population in young and old people provoking, among other things, diabetes type 2, heart disease and certain types of cancer. Orgaia works to produce low or zero calorie formulas and ingredients for caloric and weight management, enhance satiety, blood sugar management and insulin control functions.

Orgaia works on maintaining a healthy heart and the decrease in risk factors for cardiovascular disease such as cholesterol using natural functional foods and plant extracts with antioxidant peptides to improve the mitochondrial biogénesis and lipid profile of the population.

Good skin care — including sun protection and gentle cleansing can keep your skin healthy and glowing for years to come but nutrition plays the crucial part of maintaining your skin balance. Everything you eat becomes a part of not only your inner being, but the outer fabric of your body as well. When your diet is missing certain foods for healthy skin, other, even more serious skin problems can result. Some chronic skin conditions, such as eczema, may be linked to diet.

The gut is an epicentre of mental and physical health and drives your overall wellbeing and immune system. Your gut’s “brain” is known as the enteric nervous system. This system is home to 100 million neurons within your intestinal wall. These cute little neurons transmit important information throughout your body. They also control digestion and send status updates to the brain, letting it know how things are going in your belly. Many people experience lots of digestive issues that make a huge impact on their strength and vitality. Intestinal and digestive system health is fundamental for body equilibrium. Orgaia works to develop formulas and ingredients for better immunity, efficient digestion and improved gut balance with a focus on rebuilding your gut health.

Maintaining bone health and bone density are critical as we age. Nutrition and bone, muscle and joint health are closely related. A healthy diet can help you prevent and manage osteoporosis and related musculoskeletal disorders by assisting in the production and maintenance of bone. Conversely, if you’re not getting the right nutrients you’re putting yourself at greater risk for bone, muscle and joint disease. There are a number of foods, nutrients and vitamins, besides calcium and vitamin D, that help to prevent osteoporosis and contribute to bone, muscle and joint health, including protein, fruits and vegetables, and other vitamins and minerals.

We take our key senses for granted – but couldn’t do without them; but our ears and eyes are under constant threat. With surprisingly little extra care it’s easy to improve your chances of retaining your senses, not to mention avoiding infections and irritations. For example age-related hearing loss may be associated with poor micro-nutrient status. The role of folate in cellular metabolism, the nervous system and vascular function is important for the auditory system.

Adding certain nutrients to your diet every day – either through foods or supplements – can help save your vision and hearing.  For example researchers have linked eye-friendly nutrients such as lutein/zeaxanthin, vitamin C, vitamin E, and zinc to reducing the risk of certain eye diseases, including macular degeneration and cataract formation.
