Welcome to Imtiaz Super Market Malir Cantt Branch

Let’s talk about the branch since many of us don’t know about it….

I was super excited to visit the Malir Cantt branch because as we all know that area is highly restricted and only the resident can go…

The traveling time or the way is too long to enter but the clean and safety I must say and the people there, wow so humble…

Moving on, the security measures which were very high, since we visited to make a video and we were not really sure of going with the camera inside… we were on the gate when we called our branch manager to please send the car as Careem or uber are not allowed inside the Cantt…

The car was already registered and the guy who came to receive us already had the card so luckily the things went smooth. We were finally inside the Malir Cantt after all the Hustle and bustle of gates and security checks…

I was amazed at all the beauty and all the neat & clean environment… The night view or even the day view of this particular branch is amazing. The location or the creation hats off to the team who worked day and night for this kind of art.

Although half of you might not feel or agree to what I said earlier then again everyone has their own vision to see…

I went inside had a complete tour of the branch, made some videos which you all can see are there in our Instagram highlights stories and also on our YouTube channel.

We were there for almost a day, so we have seen the day time the night time and the people, I felt like I haven’t explored Pakistan’s beauty, because there in that branch so many people were coming and going, families or single mothers, all kind of age group the hospitality and the warmth plus those mesmerizing colored eyes… oh lord, I should see more of Pakistan anyways lets complete the article and journey with adding some of the magical moments we had there.

We were supposed to take the interview of the head – manager of that branch firstly, on reaching there we started shooting the video because we don’t want to miss those chill scenes, and asked if we could postpone the interview for a few hours, till then we asked him a few questions and planned for a proper interview that we can shoot a little later.

In the meantime, as everyone knows that it’s a branch and it is in working condition, so work and shoot together are a bit hectic to manage, but the people there were so generous and the team was so good that they not only manage to fulfill our requirements also they worked and gave us some interviews, we started talking and shooting with every team member, supporting officers, floor in charge, customer care staff, pharmacist and the list goes on…

We have taken a lot of interviews, but the people who work there are so humble and soft-spoken that literally, their voices were all too low to be recorded…

Even we got a chance to meet the face of voice, I mean the voice we often hear in announcements within the branch are actually happening in the CCTV rooms and not a recording is being played. We got an opportunity to meet the staff and make a video even in that dark room… (giggles)

Well this branch has turned one Masha Allah and everyone was so happy and shock as they all were saying that its already a year? Really a year has passed? Wow, unbelievable amazing time flies so fast… and that’s why we have gone there to make a video and then for the celebration…. This was my first experience to visit Malir Cantt and now I know why people say so much about Malir Cantt…..

7 Surprising Health Benefits Of Ramadan

Worried that fasting during Ramadan will have a detrimental impact on health? Find out why the month-long fast can have some surprising health benefits.

Although millions around the world have successfully observed the spiritual cleansing of Ramadan for more than a thousand years, some people fear that fasting over such a long period of time will have detrimental effects on their health. If you’re one of those worries, then check out these seven health benefits you’ll enjoy during and after Ramadan.

1 Dates

Although three dates are eaten at the start of Iftar every day during Ramadan for spiritual reasons, they also come with the added bonus of multiple health benefits. One of the most important aspects of fasting is getting the right amount of energy, and considering an average serving of dates contains 31 grams (just over 1 oz) of carbohydrates, this is one of the perfect foods to give you a boost.

Dates are also a great way of getting some much-needed fiber, which will aid and improve digestion throughout Ramadan. Add to that their high levels of potassium, magnesium and B vitamins, and it quickly becomes apparent that dates are one of the healthiest fruits out there.

2 Boost Your Brain

No doubt you’ll be aware of the positive effects fasting can have on your mental wellbeing and spiritual focus, but the brain-boosting powers of Ramadan are even more significant than you might think. A study carried out by scientists in the USA found that the mental focus achieved during Ramadan increases the level of the brain-derived neurotrophic factor, which causes the body to produce more brain cells, thus improving brain function.

Likewise, a distinct reduction in the amount of the hormone cortisol, produced by the adrenal gland means that stress levels are greatly reduced both during and after Ramadan.

3 Ditch Bad Habits

Because you will be fasting during the day, Ramadan is the perfect time to ditch your bad habits for good. Vices such as smoking and sugary foods should not be indulged during Ramadan, and as you abstain from them your body will gradually acclimatize to their absence until your addiction is kicked for good.

It’s also much easier to quit habits when you do so in a group, which should be easy to find during Ramadan. Fasting’s ability to help you cut out bad habits is so significant that the UK’s National Health Service recommends it as the ideal time to ditch smoking.

4 Lower Cholesterol

We all know that weight loss is one of the possible physical outcomes of fasting during Ramadan, but there’s also a whole host of healthy changes going on behind the scenes. A team of cardiologists in the UAE found that people observing Ramadan enjoy a positive effect on their lipid profile, which means there is a reduction of cholesterol in the blood.

Low cholesterol increases cardiovascular health, greatly reducing the risk of suffering from heart disease, a heart attack, or a stroke. What’s more, if you follow a healthy diet after Ramadan, this newly lowered cholesterol level should be easy to maintain.

5 Lasting Appetite Reduction

One of the main problems with extreme fad diets is that any weight loss is often quickly put back on, sometimes even with a little added extra. This isn’t the case with Ramadan. The reduction in food consumed throughout fasting causes your stomach to gradually shrink, meaning you’ll need to eat less food to feel full.

If you want to get into the habit of healthy eating then Ramadan is a great time to start. When it’s finished your appetite will be lower than it was before, and you’ll be far less likely to overindulge with your eating.

6 Detoxify

As well as being great for spiritually cleansing yourself, Ramadan acts as a fantastic detox for your body. By not eating or drinking throughout the day your body will be offered the rare chance to detoxify your digestive system throughout the month.

When your body starts eating into fat reserves to create energy, it will also burn away any harmful toxins that might be present in fat deposits. This body cleanses will leave a healthy blank slate behind, and is the perfect stepping stone to a consistently healthy lifestyle.

7 Absorb More Nutrients

By not eating throughout the day during Ramadan you’ll find that your metabolism becomes more efficient, meaning the number of nutrients you absorb from food improves. This is because of an increase in a hormone called adiponectin, which is produced by a combination of fasting and eating late at night and allows your muscles to absorb more nutrients.

This will lead to health benefits all around the body, as various areas are able to better absorb and make use of the nutrients they need to function.
