Benefits of fasting during Navratri

1. Boost Digestion and detoxifies the body

Fasting is not done to please God, but to cleanse our bodies.

As per Ayurveda, fasting stimulates the digestive fire. Increased digestive fire burns toxins in the body. When the body is flushed with toxins, it loses dullness and lethargy. Every cell in the body is rejuvenated. Thus, fasting is an effective method of cleansing the body. Because of the deep connection between the body and mind, a cleansed body leads to a calmer and more relaxed mind. As we detoxify the body, our hormones and mood come to a balance.

We don’t usually wait to feel hungry before eating. Hunger is the body’s way of signaling that it is ready for digestion. When you eat before you feel hungry, you weaken your digestive system, which leads to stress and poor immunity. Fasting helps the digestive fire to re-ignite, as well as de-stressing and build immunity.

According to research published in January 2021, fasting plays an important role in the cardiovascular health of a person.

2. With Navratri fasts, you can dive deeper into meditation

During Navratri, you are encouraged to spend time with yourself, meditate, and connect with the source of existence. Meditation becomes easier when the mind becomes less restless when fasting. Be sure to eat plenty of fresh fruits and other sattvic foods to stay energized. This is one of the amazing benefits of fasting during Navratri.
