Prophet Muhammad said:
Note: Talbinah is a barley syrup cooked with milk and sweetened by honey & dates.
Medical Research on Talbinah
Like the Prophet had mentioned, it is proved by medical research that Talbinah has significant impact in reducing depression. A medical paper from “National Library of Medicine” which comes under the US Government says:
The research paper states that: “The nutritional value of Talbinah was examined using proximate food analysis, minerals content analysis, and differential amino acid analysis. The results indicated that Talbinah is a high carbohydrate food (86.4%) and has a high tryptophan: branch chain amino acids ratio (1:2). A Wilcoxon nonparametric test showed that there was a statistically significant decrease on depression, stress, and mood disturbances scores among the intervention group (P < 0.05) for all parameters. In conclusion, Talbinah has the potential to reduce depression and enhance mood among the subjects. Ingestion of functional foods such as Talbinah may provide a mental health benefit to elderly people.”
