Spend Ramadan in a Healthy Way

The holiest month in the Islamic calendar is the month of Ramadan which began on the 6th of May this year.

Hundreds of millions of Muslims in the world all over began fasting to observe the holy month of Ramadan.

About 2 billion Muslims in the world will fast from dawn to dusk. For Muslims, fasting acts as a means of putting the mind, body, and soul at the same frequency.

The Muslim faithful who observe fasting periods during the Holy month of Ramadan abstain from food and water during the day.


According to some research, limiting the intake of food during the day can help to avoid health problems like high cholesterol, Heart disease, and also help to improve the mental well-being of a person.

Limiting the intake of food helps our body to focus solely on removing toxic substances while the digestive system is rested.

Many people who are devoted to proper fasting have claimed that it has helped them to shed unnecessary fat and also gain muscle mass.

Some research have been carried out to study the effects of Ramadan fasting on factors like blood cholesterol.

In some of the cases studied, there were short term improvements while in others, the fasting had no effect on blood cholesterol.

Some studies carried out even point that Ramadan fasting may have an effect on the immune system.


People observing fasting during Ramadan should know that there are risks involved in fasting; it is not suitable for just everybody.

People with health issues who constantly visit medical centres for medical check-up as well as a body check up should consult a physician for proper health screening in order to be sure that they can participate in fasting.

This can help them monitor the side effects if they eventually decide to fast. According to some nutritionists, fasting can lead to Low Blood glucose levels, which causes fatigue and lack of concentration.
