I’ve been a sports person and fitness freak for as long as I can remember. But things and priorities change when you are in college or in a job. You have so many extra things to do and so less time.

Spices have been a part of Indian and South-east Asian cuisine from a long time. We have a long and exhaustive history with the both the various kinds of spices and herbs available locally. Our lifestyle is such that we have inculcated these spices into our daily life either by consuming through food or making masala chai (spice/ masala tea).

Bodybuilding supplements are judged by most of the people by the physical effect it shows.
