Oh Wow ... OZiva



My Breakfast plate predicts a Picture Perfect  story of my Poor diet. This picture perfect yet poor diet is normal for many in Metros like Mumbai , Delhi , Bangalore , Kolkata etc. In our mad race to fit in stereo type figures , we are sacrificing our Health.

" Eat Healthy , Think Healthy " is just a Text for us.  We eat poorly , that too in a hurry, burdened by worry. No prizes for guessing , why our Health is in Sorry state , even though we are educated and know the importance of Proper Diet.

" Enough of your lecture , give us a sure-fire solution , if you have one " ... that's what you all must be muttering under the breath. All this while you must be stuffing yourself with McBurger ,  Pizza , Fries,  nth number of Cappuccinos and wondering why you feel dog-tired , cat-fired all the time.

Well the News is , I don't have any Magical Mantra and the Good News is OZiva ( Nutrition brand ) may help you with its Protein rich supplements.


    Oziva  is a 3 year old - health & fitness startup - FitCircle from Mumbai. Their goal is to enhance healthy living. One of the main & most important pillar of fitness is Nutrition.  We all know the importance of eating healthy and a balanced diet - and still most of us are unable to make that a habit.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                OZiva has helped more than 2 lakh people across India with different kind of nutrition related queries. When they analyzed these diet queries - one important thing that came out from their data was that more than 70% of the people in India are Protein Deficient and that deficiency is a high as 80% ( yes - the number is that high). Their Nutrition brand - OZiva provides high quality protein rich supplements. They have combined Modern Science & Ancient Ayurveda to make Protein Blends with Herbs. 

  1. High Quality Protein- It is easily one of the healthy and wholesome protein rich food option that one can have for a power-packed breakfast or post workout. It gives more than 30 gm of protein per scoop when taken with milk & the source used in one variant is Whey Protein
  2. Blended with Ayurvedic Herbs Specially for Women and Men, respectively - The protein is enriched with an ayurvedic herbal blend that is something to watch out for! With the choicest herbs specific to women as well as men, ranging from Shatavari (for hormonal balance and vitality), and Ashwagandha (for stress release), Tulsi (for its purification properties: boosts hair health and even, clear skin tone), and Green Tea Extract (powerhouse of antioxidants to help you burn all that extra flab!)  Ginger (as an immunity booster) and not only that, but also the goodness of Omega 3 (traced from plant sources to suit vegetarian preferences), this product stands as an impressive choice for everyone.
  3. Yummilicious - It’s Yummy and Tasty with its easy mixability and delicious cocoa flavour, it can be easily blended with absolutely anything- be it, dark chocolate or oats or fruits or even nuts. The result is deliciously indulgent yet healthy shake.
  4. It takes less than 5 min to prepare - Perfect on-the-go option when one is running short on time and needs a quick fix for a healthy meal!
  5. Low in Sugar - Most importantly- Protein & Herbs shake is low in sugar and yet tastes amazing! If you are trying to watch out your fat% and food habits, this shake will help you be on the right health track.
  6. Free Diet Consultation - The diet consultation is absolutely free with the product and it’s admirable that the brand has taken such a customer friendly approach

Now a days. the nutrition market is bursting with several product ranges with different health claims, the most famed are the protein shakes.
Almost 70% of the Indians are lacking in protein, there are many brands that have come up with protein supplements. But how do you know which protein shake is the best? Though all claim to be the best for you, some are high on sugar or sucralose. Some may contain protein from sources like Soy which can pose as an allergen in some cases. OZiva Protein & Herbs shake has high quality protein (source is whey protein) blended with Ayurvedic Herbs and Essential Vitamins & Minerals.
