Introduction

Health has come to be regarded as the real wealth in these modern times, with people becoming more & more conscious about keeping fit and eating healthy. Increasing number of gyms & fitness centers, growing organic food consciousness and the rapid growth of the 5 billion health supplement industry in India is a clear testimony to that. Lack of awareness about the nutritional aspect of what we eat is contributing to the rapid increase in lifestyle diseases like diabetes, PCOD, cardiovascular problems and obesity. People suffer from low energy & stress due to poor food choice they make in their fast paced modern lifestyle.
