Ojas balls are a form of Ayurvedic laddoo (laddu), specifically intended to benefit one's Ojas, or energetic reserve. These traditional Indian sweets are often consumed for their nutritional and therapeutic benefits throughout different seasons of life.
In general, ayurvedic laddoos are often consumed alongside a well balanced diet to augment meals or curb hunger in busy moments. For some, these tasty bites have been effective in weaning off the pangs of sugar addiction, supporting digestion, boosting energy levels, improving immunity, and/or addressing specific health concerns.
In Ayurvedic laddoos, a variety of ingredients are combined to create a nutritious and flavorful treat. The specific ingredients used when cooking tend to vary based on the desired effect. Some ingredients often found in Ayurvedic laddoos include healthy fats such as ghee (clarified butter) or coconut oil, nuts (such as almonds and cashews), seeds (such as sesame and flaxseeds), dried fruits (such as dates and raisins), and a variety of herbs and spices like cardamom, ginger, turmeric, and lesser known herbs.
Ayurveda holds that everything has an effect on one's overall wellbeing. Each ingredient in Ayurvedic laddoos is believed to possess certain therapeutic properties that can help balance the body and promote health.
