The phenomenal list of nutrients and health benefits of Dates simply unbeatable. It's tradition of Prophet Muhammad(peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) to break fast in Ramadan using Dates. This is the beauty of Islam ,with tough challenges it also provides easy essentials to pass through those tough challenges.

Here is how it works best with dates when breaking fast :
  1. Dates are easy to digest so they don’t exhaust the fasting person stomach.
  2. Dates decrease the great hunger feeling of the fasting person and so he doesn’t rush into excessive food eating which causes digestion disorders.
  3. Dates prepare the stomach to receive the food after being inactive through out the day with activating the release of digestive secretions and juices.
  4. Dates are very rich with sugary energy and so the body is supplied with the most important nutrients which is sugar that is irreplaceable as a nutrient for the brain cells and nerves.
  5. Dates protect the fasting person from having constipation as a result of changing meals times or as a result of having low fiber amounts in meals.
  6. The alkaline salts in dates adjust the acidity of blood which result from excessiveness eating of meat and carbohydrates which causes a lot of hereditary diseases as diabetes, gout, renal stones, gall bladder inflammations, high blood pressure and hemorrhoids). [orbitislam.com]
