About Us

I remembered being worried sick. My husband was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis. As a health professional and a young wife, I knew I needed to do something. I recalled my grandfather grinding and stirring his morning millet drink and saying, “This is the gift of health the earth has given us.”

Like my grandfather, when I began creating a remedy, I started with millet.  And in a serendipitous confirmation of his notion that millet was earth’s gift, I had recently read the United Nations declared 2023 as the International Year of Millet. Millet can grow on arid lands with minimal inputs, is drought and climate change resistant, and grows in half the time that wheat and rice. They are a good source of protein, fiber, micronutrients, and prebiotics. They also make an excellent base for a caffeine-free, energy-giving morning drink, post-workout recovery, or bedtime beverage.  And they are gluten-free which makes them suitable for those suffering from disorders like ulcerative colitis.

My husband, Bhushan, who is a pharmacist, helped me with an even better tasting, more effective drink. In addition to millet, we blended seeds, spices, and 6 natural, powerful herbs called adaptogens. Adaptogens work with the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal axis. They can restore the balance of hormones and modulate the immune and nervous systems.

Good thing we made it delicious because my son was developing a passion for sugar. This was a great, healthy alternative for his after-school beverage. We called it Ojas (pronounced Oh-jus), a Sanskrit word that translates to “essence of vitality,” describing the energy that rules immunity, strength, and happiness.

I am happy to report that my husband’s quality of life has improved, with virtually no Colitis flare-ups. My son no longer has sugar cravings and in the ultimate taste test, he has introduced his school friends to Ojas. They gather most afternoons to imbibe before their afternoon activities.

We created Ojas for stressed-out moms and working women aged 25-64 with families like ours. We knew you, too, could benefit from easy-to-prepare, healthy beverages created from this proprietary blend of natural ingredients that are caffeine-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, soy-free and have no added sugar. This improves energy flow and reduces fatigue, leaving you feeling healthy and well-balanced. All ingredients are sourced with integrity directly from India, where nutrition has been studied for over 5000 years.
