Moreover, Medjoul dates contain a variety of B vitamins, such as thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B-6 and pantothenic acid. These vitamins help maintain a healthy body- to metabolize carbohydrates and maintain blood glucose levels, fatty acids for energy, and they help formulate haemoglobin; the red and white blood cells.

2. High in Fiber Helping Constipation Relief

According to the American Cancer Society, an average adult is recommended to consume 20-35 grams of dietary fibre a day. Dietary fibre comes in two forms: soluble and insoluble. 

Medjoul dates have high soluble fibres, which helps with bowel movements and regulate its functions by adding bulk to stool and helping it move faster through the intestines. So, if you’re looking for a natural constipation relief remedy, try having a few Medjoul dates first.

A serving of 7 Medjoul dates contains 20 grams of carbohydrates approximately, making them the perfect powerhouse of energy. Carbohydrates include 2 grams of dietary fibre and 19 grams of naturally occurring sugars such as fructose, glucose and sucrose to provide quick energy and are readily used by the body.

5. Helps maintain Healthy Bones & Muscles

The high levels of key minerals in Medjool dates make them a great natural supplement for strengthening bones and fighting off painful and debilitating bone diseases like osteoporosis.

Medjoul dates are rich in calcium, which is essential for the development and maintenance of strong teeth and bones. Calcium helps blood vessels contract and expand, makes muscles contract, helps send messages through the nervous system and helps glands secrete hormones.

Dates also food high in phosphorus, which in combination with calcium helps optimize bone-strengthening benefits. Phosphorus is also required to help balance and use other vitamins and minerals, including vitamin D, iodine, magnesium and zinc. 

With older age, bones start to become weaker. maintaining a diet high in both calcium and phosphorus can help avoid bone degradation. Eating Medjoul dates regularly is one way that you can increase the body’s natural intake of calcium and phosphorus.

6. Rich in Magnesium and Iron

Magnesium is essential for healthy bone development and for energy metabolism. One serving of Medjoul dates provides approximately 4% of the suggested daily intake of magnesium. Iron is essential to red blood cell production. Red blood cells carry all the nutrients to cells throughout the body. One serving of California dates contains nearly a third of the Recommended Dietary Allowance for iron.

7. Natural Source of Sugar

Medjoul dates contain a high level of natural sugar. The slow release of the carbohydrates from these dates provides the body with sustainable energy rather than causing a spike in blood sugar.

Why we should purchase Palestinian Yaffa Dates

During the month of Ramadan Muslims fast from dawn to sunset. Ramadan is a time for spiritual reflection and to get closer to God. It is also about remembering the unfortunate and the poor.

The end of each day of fasting is marked by having iftar, this is the meal to end the days fast. Iftar usually begins by eating a date.

Unfortunately, many Muslims break their fast with Israeli dates. These dates help maintain the illegal occupation of Palestine.

Breaking fasts with Israeli dates counter the essence of justice and fairness that Muslims try to instil within themselves during Ramadan.

Please check the label and not buy Israeli dates to break your fasts. Israeli dates are labelled from Israel, West Bank and Jordan Valley.

Dates from West Bank and the Jordan Valley are most likely grown from illegal Israeli settlements, on land stolen from Palestinians.

Israeli settlements are extremely harmful to the Palestinian people. For an Israeli settlement to be built Palestinian people are forcibly removed from their homes, their homes are demolished and they are then denied access to their own land.

As a part of the process of colonisation of Palestine, Israel takes over Palestinian land, sets up companies on that stolen land and they then employ some Palestinians who have no option but to work there since Israel has taken away the opportunity for them to work for themselves. Palestinians would rather have their land back and than have called for a boycott of Israeli goods.

So, what can you do about this?

1) When doing your Ramadan shopping, #CheckTheLabel on the date package to see the ‘origin of’/’produce of’.

Do not buy dates labelled from Israel, West Bank and the Jordan Valley. Some Israeli brands to avoid are shown in the image below.

If you shop online, before you add the dates to your cart, check where the dates are from as this information is usually listed.

To confuse the customer, some Israeli brands have labelled themselves as ‘Produce of Palestine’. Our research, at present, can only verify genuine Palestinian brands as shown in the image below.

2) Email the foreign secretary urging the UK government to ban trade with Israeli settlements.

The UK government repeatedly condemn Israeli violations and settlements, but continue to trade with them. This is evident in the fact that the UK is Israel’s second-largest market for dates that in 2020 was worth nearly £28 million. Trade is a huge aspect in sustaining these illegal Israeli settlements.

You can email the foreign secretary above.

Make sure this Ramadan you are not helping Israel maintain its occupation by eating Israeli dates.
