Fasting in Ramadan requires you to avoid consumption of food and water from dawn till dusk. Fasting might help with preventing obesity and other persistent infections like diabetes.

Lowering Cholesterol & Improving Blood Sugar Level


As Ramadan Fasting animates the lipid profile, it brings down blood cholesterol. Consequently, it forestalls cardiovascular failures, strokes, and some other issues. Likewise, in the event that one keeps a heathy diet after Ramadan, people will retain the recently decreased cholesterol level.

Improved Digestive System
