Have you ever wondered if there was a specific reason that makes dates popular during Ramadan? It’s recommended to begin Iftar by eating three dates for multiple health benefits. What are they?
As dates are eaten at the beginning of Iftar when the fast is broken, it keeps you from overeating by filling you up with energy. Dates are easily digested and do not upset the stomach of the person who is fasting.
Dates are said to have 10 elements which are crucial for humans to stay healthy and fit. The sugar in dates is fructose as opposed to glucose, and does not lead to weight gain. Don’t forget vitamin B6, which is abundant in dates, and how it soothes the nerves incredibly.
Finally, during the month of Ramadan, people usually complain of headache and dizziness while they fast, due to low level of blood sugar. By eating dates, the sugar levels are restored at the start of Iftar, which makes a lot of sense to eat dates during the holy month of Ramadan.
