Stay hydrated during Ramadan
Avoid unhealthy fizzy drinks and make sure to consume plenty of water after you break your fast
Jeema is a trusted source for natural drinking water
Water is the most important fluid that replenish your thirst. Unfortunately, though, most of us do not drink enough but have only small amounts at IFTAR and then forget to drink water until the next day!
Jeema, sourced from the natural springs of Wadi Jeema in Hatta is among the few homegrown brands that bring the goodness of Arab Springs right to your doorstep. Low on sodium, and naturally rich in magnesium and calcium, Jeema water is a trusted source for natural drinking water.
The company was set up in 1980. Since then, it has encouraged the judicious use of water. Time and again, Jeema has introduced products in the market that minimise wastage and promote sustainability. For instance, its PET bottles are environmentally friendly and come in various sizes to suit the needs of its customers. Its 200ml bottle is handy and snuggly fits into children's lunch bags.
Jeema's quality is second to none and is certified by various bodies such as HACCP, ISO 9001-2008, Emirates Quality Mark and Global Award for Quality & Performance from Berlin, Germany.
