Health Desk: During Ramadan, gastric problems increase in many people. As a result, heartburn, chest pain, indigestion and even diarrhea can occur. Gastric problems increase due to eating some wrong food especially in summer.
Gastric problems are aggravated by consuming fried food and sugary drinks at Iftar after fasting all day. Similarly, due to eating oily and heavy food during Sehri, one suffers from gastric problems throughout the day.
In fact whenever something is eaten, it needs water to digest it. However, due to fasting, not enough water is consumed during the day, resulting in undigested food causing acidity and gas.
For this reason, if you want to fast healthily and to avoid gastric problems, you should eat wisely. Know which foods to eat and which not to eat -
Do not eat heavy food during Sehri
Consuming heavy food during Sehri may aggravate gastric problems. It takes a long time for the stomach to digest.
Besides, the stomach has to work extra hard to digest the recipe of things like meat. This can lead to indigestion, which can lead to gas problems.
Drink more in Sehri
Consuming more drinks at Sehri can help speed up the digestion process. It speeds up the digestion of food and can help keep you hydrated throughout the day. It also helps in reducing the problem of constipation during fasting.
Drink mint tea after sehri
Drinking mint tea at the end of Sehri reduces gas and acidity throughout the day. It helps to speed up the functioning of the stomach and improve the functioning of the intestines. So drink this mint tea at the end of Sehri and Iftar.
Eating jaggery helps prevent gas and acidity problems. Jaggery speeds up digestion and prevents bloating. So definitely eat jaggery during Sehri and Iftar.
