Ojas is a Sanskrit term that can be translated as “vigor” or
“essence of vitality”. In a nutshell, Ojas is the vital energy that rules our
immunity, strength, and happiness three things we want to have in
abundance. If our Ojas are weak, our
health, our spirits, and our energy sag.
When you lift
weights in the gym, that’s your physical energy at work. However, the Ojas
determine your willingness to show up at the gym every day and feel energetic
even after your workout sessions. This subtle force, the innate drive, makes
you do more and achieve more, no matter the circumstances.
Low energy levels
don’t always mean low Ojas; however, low Ojas can lead to low energy levels.
Ojas is the
sustainable energy that is different from those temporary bouts of energy that
you get from caffeine or eating sugar-rich foods. Instead, Ojas energy builds
up with time as you follow a healthy lifestyle and consume a plant-based diet.
Ojas in Ayurveda are seen as the purest essence of Kapha. It is also considered
the body’s natural elixir that provides strength and vigor from within.
Weak Ojas can often impair your ability to perform
mentally and physically. This leads to discontentment and a lingering sense of
despair. Sometimes, weak Ojas can also make you feel restless and cloud your
decision-making ability. Unfortunately, given the modern pace of life, weak
Ojas among the youth is common.

vital energy that influences the body’s immune system. Weak Ojas affect your
immunity and keeps you in low spirits. Furthermore, the signs of weak

you need help.

Ojas-building foods to revive your sustainable energy. Over time, you can get
back to living a healthy and active life.
How to increase Ojas?
The best way to replenish your Ojas energy naturally is by
consuming Ojas-increasing foods and exercising every day. Doing so will keep
your digestive fire and metabolism in proper working order. It is also
recommended to keep your eating habits in check. According to Ayurveda and the
holistic healing system, if you drink your food and chew your water, you will
never overeat or have digestive issues in your life. That’s one habit you can
develop and solidify over time. But it is also important to eat certain foods
