Ojasya (ओजस्य) refers to “vitalizing”, as mentioned in verse 5.20 of the Aṣṭāṅgahṛdayasaṃhitā (Sūtrasthāna) by Vāgbhaṭa.—Accordingly, “[...] of sweet digestion and taste, unctuous, vitalizing [viz., ojasya], augmentative of the elements, eliminative of wind and choler, viriligenic, phlegmatogenic, heavy, (and) cooling as a rule (is) milk. [...]”.

Note: Ojasya (“vitalizing”) has been modified to mdaṅs (b)skyed (“effects vitality”) and dhātuvardhana (“augmentative of the elements”) to lus-zuṅs ’phd (“augments the elements”).
