ZamZam water was discovered as a result of a miracle and Muslims consider it sacred. Here are some scientific facts about ZamZam water revealed in a study conducted by 10 different Egyptian and Saudi universities.
ZamZam is Pathogen-free
The research on ZamZam water has proved that ZamZam water is pathogen-free with no bacterial contamination. Three different samples of Zamzam drinking water collected from water coolers of Masjid al-Nabawi in Madina were centrifuged.
A drop of each water sample was immediately placed on a CLED agar plate and allowed to be incubated for 48 hours at 37°C. No bacterial growth was there. Source: NIH
Reduces Uric Acid Level
Another scientific fact about ZamZam water is that its consumption reduces serum uric acid levels in the blood. This may be due to the alkaline nature of Zamzam water which may alkalinize the urine facilitating uric acid excretion.
Zamzam water-induced significant decrease in serum uric acid (p < 0.05) may be promising for its future use in the treatment of gout. Source: University of Heidelberg
ZamZam reduces Cholesterol
People drinking exclusively ZamZam water exhibited a significant decrease in serum cholesterol and serum triglyceride in the three readings taken during the three months of the study.
Anti-fungal healing effect
The anti-fungal healing effect of ZamZam water is a scientific fact many are not aware of. According to research conducted by University Katsina, Nigeria Zamzam water was reported to exert weak antifungal effects to the same break-point as some antifungals.
No biological growth
According to the Journal of Pure and Applied Microbiology, there wasn’t any sign of microbiological growth in Zamzam water samples, and it was free from any contaminant.
Rich in minerals
Research conducted by King Abdulaziz City for Science & Technology revealed another scientific fact about ZamZam water, it has 4 essential metal minerals sodium, potassium, magnesium, and calcium.
In addition, there are 7 other minerals vanadium, manganese, iron, cobalt, copper, zinc, and molybdenum present in ZamZam water.
According to Advanced Science Letters Volume 23, Number 5 ZamZam water exerts a wide range of therapeutic and pharmacological properties e.g. antioxidant, antitumor, anxiolytic, and antidepressant agents.
Co-treatment using medicine and Zamzam water results in significant withdrawal of symptoms such as body weight loss, rare standing, and sniffing.
