Pregnancy does a lot of changes in a woman’s life. Hormonal changes, gaining weight and losing good hair and skin are just a few of them, but I am sure every woman is facing these after or during pregnancy. And I am not an exception to that too. I was losing hair and good skin but gaining weight. I have been struggling with losing weight since last year. I joined a gym, met dietician and trying to follow every single advice she has given me. But believe me, sometimes it was very difficult to follow every instruction and be in regular at the gym. One day she suggested me to take pure whey protein
powder as I couldn’t be regular to attend the gym. She said that protein powder, especially whey protein aids to lose weight as it improves metabolism and lean muscle mass which can help to reduce body fat and deliver essential nutrients. You guys know me that I always opt for something that more natural and organic. In search of such natural made vegetarian protein powder I came across a brand –“OZiva
” which offers different protein powders both for men and women, made of Ayurvedic Herbs and vegetarian resources. I have been taking their Protein and Herbs whey power for Women for almost two weeks now. Today I will be jotting down here my experience with this product.
The lack of nutrients, irregular meals, and consumption of fast food become an integral part of our modern day lifestyle. So the basic needs of essential protein and nutrients could not be filled up by what we eat, hence it leads to a deficiency of essential minerals and nutrients.
OZiva is a young brand based out of Mumbai which works on low calorie, high protein range of products enriched with Ayurvedic Herbs and essential vitamins and minerals, to help meet daily requirements of nutrients while making healthy living convenient.
Indeed, we are the first brand in India to be launching Protein with Ayurvedic Herbs as well as Meal Replacement that is specially crafted separately for men and women. They bring us tailored solution to help us meet our daily nutrition requirements whether we want to lose weight, gain Muscle or are just looking to eat healthily. They worked with several industry experts, nutritionists and researchers to develop the perfect, nutrition-rich products ranging from well- rounded meal replacement to high protein blends.

I have been taking this protein shake to the gym. What I generally do is- take 30ml pain water in the shaker and add 30gms of this protein powder (one sachet contains 30gm of powder, so for that, I added a full sachet here), shake to mix well and carry it with me to the gym. I drink it in between and after a workout. It is advised to take a protein shake after gym when you are aiming to lose weight
as it delivers amino acid to the muscle cells, helping them recover after a strenuous workout, that leads to improve metabolism and reduce body fat.

It tastes like any other chocolate shake, but I think it would taste better if you mix with milk instead of water. It is not just helping me reduce inches and also improve my overall health
. I have experienced-
- Inches loss. (Could see a huge weight loss but still)
