Introduced in 1907, RoohAfza is a fruit-filled, friendly punch which is a perfect treat on a hot day. It has been the country’s favorite drink for generations.
Rooh Afza, a bright rose flavored syrup, has a long history and an unchanged taste. Forty years older than independent India, this nostalgia-tinged beverage is a permanent fixture in the South Asian imagination and aptly called the summer drink of India, Bangladesh and Pakistan
The flavor, the fragrance and the color as well as the goodness remain unparalleled even after 100 years of its creation. Hakim Hafiz Abdul Majeed’s brainchild, it is a cool blend of herbal ingredients. A refreshing concoction, RoohAfza is a thirst quencher and a great additive for mocktails and desserts. Besides cooling, it is also nutritional and maintains as well as adjusts the body’s water level.
Generally India faced a shortage of the rose-coloured syrup, strongly associated with iftar in the month of Ramzan. Because for Muslims, If it’s Ramzan, it has to be Rooh Afza!
One beverage that is indispensable for Muslims, especially from North India, at the time of Iftar, is RoohAfza. Rooh Afza is a popular summer beverage in India, and RoohAfza concentrate is added to water, milk, and desserts to give them a refreshing, rosy taste.
RoohAfza health benefits that everyone must avail:
Helps in treating dehydration
The summer heat can cause dehydration, especially for people who are fasting since they do not drink water all day. RoohAfza hydrates the body and gives a good flavour to the otherwise boring water. RoohAfza contains minerals like sodium, calcium, magnesium, potassium, sulphur and phosphorous which help in reducing dehydration and increasing absorption of water in the body.
Rooh Afza is made with a lot of herbs, fruits, vegetables, edible flowers, etc. and is also rich in sugar. It provides the body with energy, something very important for everyone during the summer, especially for people who are fasting. A glass of Rooh Afza contains 100% carbohydrates, which is great to provide the body with energy.
Fasting for the whole day and then eating in the evening can cause indigestion, bloating, stomach ache. RoohAfza and the herbs and fruits it is made with are beneficial in improving digestion and keeping these problems away.
RoohAfza has a cooling effect on the body
The summer heat can cause the body temperature to rise, and lead to problems like heat strokes. To avoid heat strokes, you must keep your body hydrated and cool at all times. One of the best ways to do so is to incorporate Rooh Afza drink in your diet. Drinking a glass of the drink can make you feel refreshed, cool and relaxed in the summer heat.
Improves cardiovascular health
