Intermediate/Advanced Ayurveda: Deep Dive Into Ojas
It is written that 100 bites of food are equal to one drop of blood and 100 drops of blood equal one drop of ojas. Ojas is conceptualized as a very fine biological substance that comprises the most concentrated essence of nutrients and energy in the body. Modern scholars have linked the concept of ojas to the blood protein albumin. Others have hypothesized that it may parallel essential fatty acids.
