Ramadan is a month-long fasting period for Muslims. During this period, God's first message to Muhammad is commemorated. It is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, during which Muslims do not eat or drink between sunrise and sunset. But if you don't eat and drink regularly and live extra modestly, will that also have a negative impact on your vitamins during Ramadan?
How does your body react to fasting?
You can experience quite a few detoxification and withdrawal symptoms during Ramadan. Think of:
- Headache and less focus
- Dehydration complaints
- Mood swings
- Changes in digestion
- Dehydrated hair
- Brittle nails
- Dull skin
Please note: these are things that can occur, because some people actually benefit from adjusting this life and nutritional rhythm.
How do you ensure that you get enough vitamins during Ramadan?
During Ramadan you must provide your body and muscles with the necessary vitamins. Make sure you don't eat too much in a short time to avoid stomach complaints and weight fluctuations. Drink plenty of water after sunset so you don't get dehydrated.
Take two gummies a day so that you get the necessary vitamins during Ramadan. A good time to take this in is during Sahūr; the first meal in the morning, before the daytime fast begins.
By taking your vitamins daily during Ramadan, you ensure that you remain in good health and that your hair, nails, bones and skin are strong and continue to shine.
