Review: Women’s Horlicks

Women have different nutritional needs as compared to men. Unfortunately, the number of women specific nutritional supplements is quite less in India. Here is our take on GSK’s Women’s Horlicks which is priced at Rs. 180 for 330grams.

What the Brand Claims

GSK claims that Women’s Horlicks helps to improve blood and bone health of women.

What She Likes

Comes in a variety of flavours Vanilla, Toffee, Elaichi and Chocolate (Chocolate tastes the best)

It has the basic nutritional requirements that a women needs.
Folic acid, iron and calcium content helps meet the daily RDA requirement for a woman.
Reasonably priced and easily available across all medical stores
Manufactured by a trusted manufacturer – Glaxo Smith Kline

What She hates

The claim that it builds blood and bone health is a bit exaggerated. It does provide the nutritional requirements, but it does not mean that it can completely restore a women’s health.

You might need to consult with your doctor if you have been suffering from Osteoporosis for a nutritional supplement specific to your condition.

Final Take

Women’s Horlicks is cheap, easily accessible and a tasty nutritional supplement. It is good as an everyday health supplement to maintain good health but it shouldn’t be sued with the intention of treating a health condition such as osteoporosis. Please consult your doctor if you are anaemic or suffer from osteoporosis.

Overall, it is an average nutritional supplement, completely safe and tasty to have every day.

      its a good health supplement, you should try it. but being vegetarian has nothing to do with lack of energy or nutrients. you can search online for sources of all nutrients you need and find apprpriate vegetarin options for all. add nuts, beans and seeds to your diet. m a turned vegetarian and i feel healthier andmoreenergetic on vegetarian diet. all the Best

    Love it but dont understand why they have to make it so sweet! A sugar-less version for all those with diabetes would be very welcome!
