Ramadan is special time for reflection, self-improvement, kindness and spirituality and fasting is one of the key pillars of the Holy Month,with those observing Ramadan fasting from dawn to dusk. Here are some of the Positive impacts fasting can have on your health and well-being:
Regulates "Bad" Cholesterol;
Many people aim to lose some weight by fasting. However, a recent study found that fasting also affects the lipid profile.This results in reduced blood cholesterol, which can keep heart attacks,strokes and other diseases at bay.
Observing Ramadan and fasting gives your lifestyle and digestive system a positive U-turn.As your body gets used to eating less, your digestive system gets a chance to rest and your stomach gradually shrinks in size. This reduces your appetite, and the results can last longer than many trend diets.
