Benefits of Nabeez

  • It is an Alkalising tonic – Illness thrives in an acidic environment and Nabeez cures acidity in the stomach and digestive system. 
  • Nabeez is beneficial in cases of Arthritis and Gout/cases of elevated Uric Acid.  
  • It removes other metabolic wastes from the body such as excretements are substances left over from metabolic processes (such as cellular respiration) which cannot be used by the organism (they are surplus or toxic), and must therefore be excreted. This includes nitrogen compounds, water, CO2, phosphates, sulphates, etc.. 
  • Enhances digestion as it is high in soluble fibre.
  • It is good for the memory.
  • It helps the function of the Spleen, Liver, Chest, Throat, and Prostate.

My experience with Nabeez

I have only starting making Nabeez recently after reading a lovely message about its benefits. This is a prophetic drink and as such i knew it would hold some benefit to me. However that didn’t mean i was looking forward to trying it! I imagined that it would be really ‘bitty’.

The part that struck me the most is that this is an alkalising drink that removes acidity from the stomach. I think i have mentioned previously, that i read a lot about food in general and one of the things i have read repeatedly is that the body should be in an alkaline state to avoid many of the illnesses we hear about nowadays. More on that here.

I was pleasantly surprised when I had Nabeez because it is delicious. So much better then I expected. Soaking the dates only intensifies their sweetness, making this drink very easy to drink! A Kilner jar is ideal for Nabeez because you can just screw the lid on and forget about it but a tall glass covered with anything from cling film to a small dish is also perfect. 

I also found that the drink made me feel energised throughout my fast and the usual tiredness and aching experienced whilst fasting wasn’t present. I felt like i had the energy to take on more and was able to engage in my usual long walks. 

Benefits of Dates

Dates contain Fibre,  Potassium, Copper, Manganese, Magnesium and Vitamin B6. Dates also promote Digestive Health,  Help to relieve constipation thanks to the fibre content,  boost heart health, are an anti inflammatory, reduces blood pressure, help boost iron levels, help to reduce blood pressure, promote respiratory health and helps to prevent colon cancer. So it always makes sense to consume dates!

Ingredients

  • 7 Dates I use Medjoul
  • 250 ml Water

Instructions

  1. Soak the dates in water overnight, in a large cup or jar with a lid.

  2. Put into the fridge. Remove from the fridge half an hour before you plan to drink it so it can come to room temperature.

Recipe Notes

Leaving the date water for too long in a warm place can cause fermentation. Yesterday it was particularly hot, so i put my jar in the fridge to do its thing. If it is a cool day, there is no need to put the water into the fridge. 

This picture was taken just as the dates went in. The water looks a lot murkier after a while.

I hope you enjoy this lovely drink and that you have it as often as we do! Please let me know if you make it.
