  2. Boost your Brain: the mental focus achieved during Ramadan increases the level of brain  derived. Neurotrophic  factor, which increases the body to produce more brain cells, thus improving function.

  4. Lower cholesterol: people observing Ramadan enjoy a positive effect on their lipid profile, which means there is a reduction of cholesterol in the blood.
  5. Lasting Appetite Reduction: the reduction in food consumed throughout fasting causes your stomach to gradually shrink,meaning you will need to eat food to full.
  6. Detoxify: 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 mouth.
