Spiritual Nutrition: Foods That Sustain & Build Ojas

When the pure essence of the seven vital dhatu in the body culminates, it is called the ojas. It plays a crucial role in our overall health as it boosts the immune system, and relates to the endocrine, nervous, skeletal, muscular, and digestive systems.

Ayurvedic nutrition depends on the balance of the ojas which ensures the maintenance of the three doshas (vata, pitta, kapha), the seven dhatus, and three malas (sweat, urine and faeces). It is a vital energy that boosts our immunity, vitality and mental health.

Balanced Ojas has many benefits:

  • It provides relief for muscle pain or joint pain

  • Tackles drowsiness

  • Drives away fatigue

  • Boosts a weakened immune system

  • Tackles feelings of anxiety and depression

The foods that can build ojas are:

  • Rich, thick fruits like bananas, dates, figs

  • Sweet, juicy fruits such as peaches and mangos

  • Coconut – water, milk and oil

  • Nuts, especially cashews and almonds

  • Leafy greens

  • Mung beans

  • Organic whole milk

  • Ghee

  • Raisins

These foods will help boost your body’s ojas and will leave you feeling energetic and revitalised in body and mind. By having these foods regularly, you will be able to keep your ojas from getting depleted. So ensure that you have a healthy diet. Eat well and have happy life!
