Follow these essential tips to stay healthy, safe and strong during the Hajj pilgrimage

Dubai, UAE, July 4 2017: As Muslim pilgrims from all over the world get ready to perform Hajj (annual pilgrimage to Mecca), it is important that individuals undertaking the religious tour, plan their activities in advance to stay well hydrated at all times.

“All pilgrims who undertake Hajj this year should aim to be fit. Keeping active and improving mobility can be easily tackled if the body is well hydrated. Optimal hydration levels may not only benefit general health, but also help pilgrims to avoid heat stroke,” said Arsalan Karim, Director, Research and Development, Clinova Ltd.

In the case of mass gatherings and huge crowds such as the Hajj, the most important health concern is staying hydrated. If you are travelling to Hajj this year, follow the below recommendations to help keep you safe and healthy.

Drink plenty of water

Water is always the best form of fluid during the Hajj pilgrimage. To stay hydrated, carry bottled water at all times and avoid carbonated drinks where possible during the entire journey.

Get enough rest and sleep

Sleep is crucial for recovery from a physically demanding journey. In addition to getting sufficient overnight sleep, resting periods are recommended before and after performing rituals during Hajj to freshen up your body.

Drink soups and stews

While on Hajj, try and include hearty soups and stews in your meal. These are often full of water, and are a deliciously comforting way to increase your fluid intake.

Consume water-based foods

Cucumber, celery, tomatoes, spinach, grapes, watermelons are all composed of at least 90 per cent water, so pack your diet with these juicy foodsevery day.

Munch on nuts

For long journeys as Hajj, consume dried fruit and nut mixtures that contain high amounts of potassium, sodium, protein, carbs and calories. It keeps you feeling energised and also maintains the optimal water levels in your body.

Rely on Clinova O.R.S Hydration Tablets

Following strenuous physical activity as in Hajj, you need more electrolytes to replenish what's lost in sweat, and fluids to help rehydrate the body. Consume Clinova O.R.S Hydration Tablets, which are high in electrolytes. You can also drink these once you are on the move.
O.R.S Hydration Tablets help replenish the salts quickly. We suggest consuming Clinova's O.R.S. Tablets, which are a balanced formula of glucose, electrolytes and minerals which when added to water is a perfect, natural replacement that fills your body's water requirements.

“Throughout Hajj, pilgrims lose substantial amounts of liquids through perspiration or sweat. A hot climate and physical activity increase your need for water. To maintain adequate hydration, it is important to consume O.R.S Hydration Tablets in addition to water to compensate the fluids lost,” concluded Arsalan Karim.

Clinva O.R.S Hydration Tablets are available in all key pharmacies in the UAE.
