Do you know the importance of proteins? They are called the building blocks of a human body as they help in making muscles and act as a fuel for the body.
In order to be healthy and fit, we need a good amount of all the nutrients. Proteins help us in many ways and many Indians are lacking in proteins. There is protein shakes available in the market these days and a good shake should be less in sugar too.
One should know about the kind of protein used in protein shakes. I came to know about Oziva herbs and proteins shake and it is a good quality protein shake as its source is Whey protein. It has added some ayurvedic herbs and essential vitamins and minerals.
To know more about the protein shake, read this-
- High-Quality Protein- It gives 30 gm of protein per scoop when taken with milk and the protein present is Whey protein. It can be taken as rich and healthy protein rich breakfast or after a workout.
- Herbs- It has some ayurvedic herbs added to it which makes it more nutritious like Tulsi, Green tea extract, Shatavari, Ashwagandha, and Ginger. It also has Omega 3 fatty acids in it.
- Tastes good and easy to prepare- – To make it yummy, they have added cocoa powder. One can add anything extra like dry fruits or oats to make it yummier. It takes just 5 minutes to prepare it.
- Less sugar- The sugar content is not high and it is tasty too.
- Free diet consultation – The brand also provides free diet consultation with the product.
- Use- One can have it anytime as there is no fixed time for it as it is flexible that way.
Not only as shakes but it can be added to many recipes too.
