Get recharged this summer with Umeshu

When summer arrives, can Natsu bate be far behind? Natsu bate, pronounced as Nah-tsu- bah-tay, is a Japanese term that means ‘summer exhaustion’. Common to the hot summers of Japan, and even in India, summer exhaustion is fatigue that brings with it dullness, lack of appetite, lack of energy, tiredness, sometimes nausea, digestive troubles, and in more severe cases, even minor depression. What you normally do is reach out for some ice water or lemon juice or just plain glucose to quench your thirst after a long, hot, summer day. How about switching things up and taking a more delicious and refreshing route to overcome your summer fatigue?

This summer, when the symptoms of summer exhaustion get to you, go ahead and pour yourself a glass of chilled umeshu. The refreshing fruity aroma and deliciously sweet-to-sour taste of umeshu will not only uplift your mood but also rejuvenate you. 

The nutritional value of umeshu

Umeshu is rich in antioxidants and minerals like manganese, magnesium, calcium, iron, zinc, and potassium. It also contains sugars and carbohydrates from the plums and the sugar used in making umeshu. Moreover, umeshu contains a significantly lower amount of harmful histamines, making it an easy-drinking beverage. Umeshu also packs in essential vitamins, especially vitamin C, which are very useful in helping relieve fatigue. 

How does umeshu help relieve summer fatigue?

After a long summer day, consuming water is just not enough. Your body is dehydrated and exhausted, and it has lost a lot of electrolytes in the heat. To recover from the fatigue this causes the body, you need to not only rehydrate but also replenish the electrolytes. Umeshu is the perfect thirst quencher in the summer for this reason. It does not just satisfy your hydration needs, but also helps replenish the lost electrolyte balance in your body. A healthy electrolyte balance in the body ensures that the different organ systems that rely on these electrolytes – right from your circulatory system to your nervous system, and even your digestive track – go back to normal functioning and relieve the stress. Sodium and potassium are the two main minerals the body needs, to recover from summer fatigue. Umeshu is rich in potassium, making it your perfect summer drink.

Umeshu offers instant energy from the sugars and carbohydrates present in it. Summer fatigue can drain your energy, making you feel exhausted. A glass of chilled umeshu will boost your energy levels in no time. 

The next time you feel exhausted and low on energy during summer, reach out for a glass of chilled umeshu. You will not just feel relaxed and refreshed, but also be making a healthier choice and giving your body its much-needed nutrients.
