A Healthy Ramadan with Tea
Ramadan is upon us, and this year has been different to previous years as people are fasting while observing lockdown rules in the UAE and around the world, so we wanted to assure you that we’re still delivering throughout this time to cover all your Iftar and Suhoor hydration needs with our full tea range to help you have a healthy Ramadan.
How does fasting affect the body?
During fasting hours when no food or drink is consumed, the body uses its stores of carbohydrate and fat to provide energy once all the calories from the foods consumed during the night have been used up. The body cannot store water and so the kidneys conserve as much water as possible. However, the body cannot avoid losing some water when you go to the toilet, through your skin, when you breathe and when you sweat if it is warm.
Depending on the weather and the length of the fast, most people who fast during Ramadan will experience mild dehydration, which may cause headaches, tiredness and difficulty concentrating. However, studies have suggested that this is not harmful to health, provided that enough fluids are consumed after breaking the fast to replace those lost during the day.
Drinking plenty of fluids, as well as consuming fluid-rich foods, is very important to replace fluids lost during the day and to start the next day of fasting well hydrated. The pre-dawn meal, Suhoor, provides fluids and energy for the day of fasting ahead, so making healthy choices can help you to cope better with the fast.*
