Fitness and nutrition go hand in hand, and the company aims to explore a part of the fitness industry that is not given much focus. Most proper fitness experts say that fitness goals can be achieved by 80% nutrition and 20% exercise. Habbit Health and Nutrition aim to bring products that will help individuals to pursue fitness as a lifestyle and not just a temporary thing.
From proteins to snacks, beverages, ice-creams they will bring personalized products for the health industry. More often than not, fitness freaks have to compromise on taste for nutrition. They wish to change that in the future and make their products as healthy as possible using natural sources for protein, fats, carbs without affecting the products taste.
