What is Ramadan Fasting

Fasting during Ramadan is considered one of the Five Pillars of Islam and holds immense spiritual significance for Muslims. Fasting during this holy month is believed to be a way of purifying the soul and developing self-discipline, patience, and empathy for the less fortunate. It can also be seen as an opportunity to strengthen your connection with Allah (God) and seek forgiveness for past sins. 

Other than just the religious benefits, fasting also has several health benefits. Some of these include detoxification, improved digestion, and even weight management.

 

Need for Protein and Nutrients

Protein and optimal nutrition are essential for the body's optimal functioning and overall well-being, particularly during Ramadan. As the body fasts, it requires adequate protein intake to prevent muscle breakdown and promote repair and recovery. 

Consuming nutrient-dense foods is crucial in maintaining energy levels, supporting the immune system, and promoting overall health. Meeting your protein and nutrition needs during Ramadan can help prevent fatigue, weakness, and other health issues, allowing individuals to fast more comfortably and reap the spiritual benefits of this holy month.

 

HOW TO MEET THE REQUIREMENTS

Incorporating protein-rich foods into meals during Ramadan can help meet the body's protein needs and support muscle growth and repair. Some examples of protein-rich foods that you can include in your Suhoor and Iftar meals are -

 

  • Eggs 
  • Beans
  • Lentils
  • Chickpeas
  • Chicken
  • Fish
  • Tofu
  • Dairy products 

 

Nuts, seeds, and nut butters are also excellent protein sources and can be added to smoothies, oatmeal, or even enjoyed as a snack. Incorporating some of these protein-rich foods into your diet can help ensure adequate protein intake during Ramadan.

 

A lot of people also tend to opt for eating some of the less-healthy foods, even if they planned to eat only healthy! It’s alright because we’ve all been there and cravings are hard to deny. To balance out unhealthy food, it’s important to increase your intake of healthy and good foods.

 

Another way to ensure you get your required daily intake of nutrients can be wellness supplements. Protein powders, electrolytes, superfood mixes, and many more beneficial supplements that you can easily add to your daily Iftar and Suhoor meals.  

 

The Right Supplements

Teami has a variety of wellness supplements that are not only beneficial to your health but are also absolutely DELICIOUS!

Choose the supplements that fit your needs as well as tastes. You can even mix two of these nutritional supplements together to create a super smoothie!

 

PROTEIN

Here’s why you need to increase your protein intake during Ramadan.

 

  • Protein is one of the building blocks of bone, muscle, and skin. The body needs it to produce hormones, enzymes, and other chemicals.
  • Protein helps keep you full longer, which can also help decrease cravings or appetite naturally.
  • Consuming protein can help muscle growth and recovery after exercise.

 

It’s the perfect addition to your Suhoor meal that will keep you nourished and full during the day. You can have it in many different ways - smoothies, pancakes, cookies, and more. 

 

GREENS

Another important thing to make sure of this Ramadan is to consume a good amount of greens. If you’re finding it hard to incorporate this into your diet then we have just the thing for you!

  • Acai Berry
  • Kale Powder
  • Kelp Powder
  • Rocket Leaf Powder
  • Parsley Powder

  • Dandelion Extract

HYDRATION

One of the main things that affect people during their fast is the lack of water. So, it’s necessary to get the right amount of hydration during the non-fasting hours to restore your body’s balance. 

 

Contrary to popular belief, water alone isn’t enough to provide you with the optimal level of hydration. You need to supplement it with some electrolytes that will give you all the nutrients you need to stay hydrated. Teami’s Hydrate is the solution that you’re looking for! Just add a spoonful to your water and enjoy a refreshing drink that has a ton of benefits to offer. It will keep your body hydrated, your electrolytes balanced, and your mind focused throughout the day.

 

DETOXING

You might end up eating quite a bit of food during Iftar, and after an entire day of fasting, this can give you some digestive issues. You will need to give your body a much-needed detox, and Teami’s Gut Love is the best solution for that! This Probiotic Prebiotic supplement will help with your digestion, get rid of bloating, and promote inner well-being. 

 

To conclude

In conclusion, meeting one's protein and nutritional needs during Ramadan is essential for maintaining physical health and spiritual well-being. Incorporating protein-rich foods and nutrient-dense foods into Suhoor and Iftar meals, staying hydrated, and supporting the body's natural detoxification process can all help individuals fast more comfortably and reap the spiritual benefits of this holy month. By prioritizing their health and nutrition needs, Muslims can fully embrace the spiritual significance of Ramadan while also supporting their physical health and well-being.
