Talbina is a traditional food and has been consumed by many people for decades due to its health benefits. The nutritious porridge can be prepared at home with ease and is rich in dietary fibre and vitamins, minerals and protein that help in keeping one healthy and energetic throughout the day.
It is a well-known fact that the Prophet (peace be upon him) liked to drink Talbina and had many Hadiths about its merits for both physical and mental health. The Hadiths narrate that the Prophet (peace be upon him) suggested using Talbina to alleviate pressure, uneasiness, depression and sorrow of heart. In addition, he claimed that it removes the bitterness from the hearts of mourners when they lose their loved ones.
The nutrient-rich drink is also known to provide relief from constipation, as it contains a high amount of soluble fibre. This helps in improving the bowel movement by ensuring that the food moves through the digestive system quickly. Talbina is also a great source of magnesium, zinc and amino acids that promote healthy brain function by relieving stress, anxiety and anger.
The soothing beverage is also a good source of iron and potassium. It also has low glycemic index, which ensures a stable blood sugar level and prevents mood fluctuations. Moreover, it is an excellent energy booster and improves concentration. It also provides essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that fight free radicals. In addition, it has a sweet taste and can be added with different fruits, nuts or dry organic products to make it more nutritious.
