We bring together the worlds of holistic living and nutritional therapy, through plant-based ingredients that work in synergy with the rhythms of nature. Achieve the vitality you deserve and nourish from within.
Our founder, Kay Katwa, grew up surrounded by Ayurvedic traditions. Ayurveda is an ancient Indian philosophy, which translates to “knowledge of life." It provides insight into how individuals can live in harmony with the natural world and harness its wisdom.
Through her work as a nutritional therapist, Kay has been inspired to deepen her knowledge and understanding of these practices, and to share them with others so that they too can experience the transformative benefits of this holistic approach to living. She feels grateful for the opportunity to spread this knowledge and support others on their journey towards self-empowerment and greater vitality.
Fuelled by her passion for using food to find vitality, Kay studied to become a registered nutritional therapist. Throughout her time as a student and beyond she noticed one theme: That the principles she was handed in the kitchen as a child were backed up by modern science.
This sparked her quest to bring together ancient wisdom with modern scientific understanding, in a way that was easy and accessible, even to those with no past experience of Ayurvedic principles.
She began her journey towards building Surya Prana Nutrition by searching for an ingredient that exemplified this quest: Turmeric. Known as “The golden spice” of Ayurveda, it has been used for centuries for a variety of conditions. Recent modern nutritional research has further proven just how timeless it can be as one part of a healthy lifestyle.
Kay sourced turmeric that is well-loved by practitioners and individuals seeking to live a more healthful lifestyle. Then, using tradition, wisdom and experience, she began to offer a range of other plant-based ingredients, combining nutritional research and Ayurvedic wisdom to help you thrive.
We’re here to help anyone who is passionate about organic, natural and nutritious food, who is curious about Ayurveda or who wants to live a life more aligned with the rhythms of nature.
Not only do we love working with practitioners who are seeking high-quality products that could help support their clients, but we also love empowering individuals with the knowledge and tools they need to understand their own wellbeing.
“I had noticed how my skin was noticeably drier and my hair brittle and lifeless as I moved through the menopause.
As a career fitness professional, I am aware of the importance of looking after all aspects of my body and was searching for a supplement to complement the post-menopause regime I have in place and Kay suggested I try her Amla blend, an ancient fruit used in Ayurvedic medicine.
Over the 3 months I have been using the supplement, I have seen noticeable benefits, including new hair growth on my scalp & a brighter complexion.
I will be continuing with Amla as part of my dietary programme and seeking advice from Kay in the future.”
