The popularity of a plant-based diet has skyrocketed twofold since the pandemic hit, making people sit up and take notice of the climate crisis that’s only rising in scale. More and more people are doing the things that are in their control by adopting sustainable lifestyle changes, one of the major ones being switching en masse to a plant-based diet, which is essential to protect wildlife habitats and prevent the loss of numerous species facing extinction. Plus, generally speaking, diets that focus heavily on plant matter tend to be healthier, giving you the gift of living a longer life with fewer heart problems.
Initially, it’s only natural for you to face a few qualms about completely shifting to plant-based foods especially when it comes to protein but swapping animal protein for an equally diverse diet of plant-based proteins will bring you a similar spectrum of nutrients. To decode the myths around plant-based nutrition, we speak with Onelife Nutriscience founder Gaurav Aggarwal on what is the role of plant-based supplements in the industry.
Having had the opportunity of honing his entrepreneurial skills early on by managing the family business of pharmaceuticals, it was instinctive for Gaurav Aggarwal to get drawn towards nutraceuticals as a way to diversify the business. Pulling from his years of experience, insights, and knowledge of health and nutraceutical, Aggarwal founded Onelife to present the consumers with a conscious opportunity to live it right. With over 100 products made with the perfect blend of science and nature and that cater to nutrition, wellness, and beauty concerns of all, the brand has a strong presence across 15 cities in West and North India.
ThinkRight.me: How did Onelife Nutriscience get started? What was the inspiration behind the brand?
Gaurav Aggarwal: I have personally experienced that evolving need for nutrition changes with changing lifestyles and life stages. I have always believed we all have only one life and we should strive our best to live it right.

We wanted to create products that cater to your every need with supreme quality ingredients
TRM: What sets Onelife apart from the rest?
GA: At Onelife, we believe that making true claims is far more important than making big claims for your overall well-being. No two people are the same when it comes to their nutritional requirements, therefore we have multiple product categories and delivery formats for addressing different nutritional needs. Another thing that makes us different is that our products are clinically researched and formulated and are a perfect blend of nature and science.

We all try to live it right in all the roles and capacities that life presents us with. To achieve all we strive for, it is extremely vital to remain in our best health. This is the sole reason for our existence.
