Despite being aware of the body’s needs, these requirements are often overlooked for various reasons. One crucial phase that requires utmost attention is pregnancy and postpartum recovery. During this time, the body requires significantly more nutrition than usual to maintain the health of both the mother and the baby. Nutrizoe is an essential source of nourishment for women as these scientifically formulated products are enriched with all the necessary natural ingredients and are easily consumable. At IPV, we strongly identify with the brand’s vision of introducing revolutionary products that alleviate the challenges faced by women.”

Identifying the gap through extensive research and developing products that are science and evidence-based.

We are excited to have IPV backing us in this goal to create healthy moms and healthy babies. With the varied experience, network and portfolio companies of IPV we look forward to a learning journey upwards and beyond.”
