The Benefits of High-Protein Meals to those in need this Qurbani Season
Qurbani holds immense cultural importance for millions of us worldwide, but besides its spiritual significance, we’re exploring the opportunity Qurbani offers for millions of Muslims to embrace a balanced diet which is rich in protein. This Qurbani season, we are aiming to provide protein-rich meals to those less fortunate, allowing them to unlock health benefits they may not usually get to explore due to food insecurity.
Protein plays a vital role in our bodies, serving as the building blocks for muscles, bones, skin, hair, and other tissues. It is composed of amino acids, which are essential for many bodily functions. High levels of protein in the diet can also aid the repair and growth of cells as well as regulating hormones, supporting the immune system, and transporting nutrients to different parts of the body.
Qurbani offers a rich source of protein such as goat and beef, which can help the body reach its natural requirements. Protein has also been proven to repair and build muscles which will allow our Qurbani beneficiaries to be strong, active, and healthy.
As well as protein, our Qurbanis are also filled with essential nutrients. The packs we deliver year after year thanks to your generous donations provide a source of vitamins B6, B12 and niacin, which are crucial for energy production, nerve function and metabolism. Other vital elements such as iron, zinc and selenium which can be found within our Qurbani packs support the immune system and promote overall well-being.
As we celebrate the joyous Qurbani season, let’s recognise the amazing impact that giving Qurbani will have on those less fortunate. Having access to protein-rich foods and an overall balanced diet could be the difference between life and death for many across the developing world.
