Enhance your pranic health with positive Pranic foods

Pranic food principles are based on yogic diet culture of ancient India where food is said to nurture not only the body but mind and souls as well.


Food not only acts as a body fuel but also shapes our minds, habits, and even our character. Different types of foods cause sleep, satisfaction, anger, joy, happiness, and other positive /negative feelings. By eating the right type of food we can increase our positive energy and enrich our body, mind and soul.

What is pranic diet

Prana is the vital energy of our body. Pranic eating pattern thus concentrates on how a specific category of food will affect our prana or body's vital energy.

Food is categorized into 3 categories according to yogic principles- positive panic, negative panic, and neutral panic. Positive pranic food rejuvenates your pranic energy, negative pranic food hurts your panic energy, and neutral pranic food doesn't have any significant effect but it causes lethargy.

Just like a car short of fuel starts running on instantly after refueling, our body should also be able to continue with its daily activities as soon as we refuel it with food. It's not the case though. Even after having a meal we look for stimulants, candies, biscuits, coffee, chocolates, and more. These stimulants create lethargy and heaviness.

Pranic food is based on the concept of "refuel, rejuvenate and resume" promptly and with more efficiency.
