Hydration is important, even when fasting!
When fasting, it is said that you need to drink at least 2 liters of water per day. During this period, you can’t get water from food, so you must drink continuously. But being limited to tasteless mineral water isn't really pleasant...
So what other drinks are suitable for fasting?
Avoid alcohol at all costs!
Alcohol, even in small amounts, can be harmful to the body if consumed on an empty stomach. It directly affects the stomach walls, increases the burden on the liver, thus weakens the detoxification effect aimed by fasting.
In addition, if alcohol is consumed on an empty stomach, it immediately enters the bloodstream, which can lead to rapid intoxication.
Alcohol consumption during fasting is very dangerous and should be avoided at all costs.
Sugar and caffeinated drinks are not your friends
Sugar is an important source of energy. When fasting, your glucose level is low. Consequently, ingesting sugar causes a rapid rise in blood glucose levels. Insulin is then secreted to lower the blood glucose level, and sugar is converted into fat, which is then stored in your body.
Therefore, be careful with sugary drinks while fasting.
Coffee and tea, which contain caffeine, are also drinks that should be avoided during fasting. Caffeine also affects the detoxification process as your internal organs and enzymes work to break down the caffeine. The stimulant effect of caffeine can also make you feel unsettled, even with small amounts. Let’s not forget about the most common effects of caffeine on your body: dizziness, headaches, heart palpitations, etc.
It is best to cut out caffeine some time before starting fasting and avoid risks of anemia and hypoglycemia.
So what can I drink while fasting?
During fasting, you want to consume vitamins and minerals as well as water. Vegetable juices and green smoothies can be a good option. However, as written before, drinks with high sugar content are not recommended. It is better to make homemade juices so you can control which vegetables and fruits you are using, and the amount of sweetness.
Some people also drink enzyme drinks that contain concentrated dietary fiber and vitamins. Even in this case, you should be careful about the sugar content and additives contained. Of course, drinks that contain no sugar, additives or caffeine, such as barley tea and herbal tea, are also recommended for fasting.
Genshin coffee (Japanese brown rice coffee), made from roasted organic brown rice, is completely additive-free, sugar-free, caffeine-free and has no coffee beans. It is different from genmai-cha, which contains caffeine.You can drink it hot or iced. It has a delicious taste, making it an ideal drink for fasting.
Improve your fasting experience with TOMO Café Genshin
Certified by the coat of arms of the Royal House of Monaco
JAS Organic certified
Since ancient times, roasted brown rice was used as a natural remedy and has been called "Genshin" in Japan.
TOMO Café Genshin is a Japanese premium brown rice coffee. This drink is 100% made from Japanese organic brown rice. Caffeine-free, sugar-free, additive-free and without coffee beans, this Japanese drink is safe.
The raw material of Genshin coffee, Isehikari brown rice, is roasted in the Kurohime Highlands of Nagano Prefecture. Before the roasting process, brown rice is left to rest in a moon therapy room, where it is exposed to light of the same wavelength as moonlight with classical music composed by Mozart and Bach playing in the background, giving it its delicate taste.
The slow-roasted brown rice is then carefully milled and ground into Genshin Coffee, a coffee alternative that can be brewed in a hand dripper or coffee maker.
For everyday use, the best choice is the drip type, which is a great value for a generous amount of cups. There is also a tea bag type, which is easy to brew.
