 Recent studies and researches indicate that the zero consumption or total fasting prescribed during Ramadhan is a powerful positive and proactive healthcare initiative that ward off future health problems. As a positive healthcare institution, the month of Ramadhan advocates health-enhancing activities such as fasting, getting up early in the morning, and eating wholesome food such as vegetables, sprouts and fruits in order to ward off future threats to health and to enrich your health against all risk factors.
Nutritionists say during and after Ramadhan, one must carefully choose those items that enrich and enhance your health against all risk factors. For example, eating apple is good for protecting your heart, preventing constipation, blocking diarrhoea and improving lung capacity.
Eating apricot helps combat cancer, controls blood pressure and saves eyesight and slows ageing process. Banana protects heart, quiets a cough, strengthens bones, controls blood pressure and blocks diarrhoea.
Broccoli strengthens bones, saves eyesight, combats cancer, protects heart and controls blood pressure. Cabbage is good for fighting cancer, preventing constipation, promoting weight loss and reducing haemorrhoids.
Carrots save eyesight, protect heart, prevent constipation, combat cancer and help in weight loss. Cauliflower protects against prostate cancer, combats breast cancer, strengthens bones, banishes bruises and guards against heart disease.
Eggs, the nature's most perfect food, must be a part of the meal. Eggs are high in protein and relatively low in calories. The yolk contains choline, one of the most important nutrients for the brain, as well as lutein and xeazanthin, two critical nutrients for eye health.
Figs are good for weight loss; helps stop strokes, lowers cholesterol, combats cancer and controls blood pressure.

Oats lower cholesterol, combat cancer, battle diabetes and prevent constipation. Olive oil protects heart, promotes weight loss, combats cancer, and fights diabetes and smoothes skin.
It is very good to drink pomegranate juice, which is loaded with antioxidants. Studies show it can reduce blood pressure and plaque in the arteries. New research indicates it also slows the progression of tumours.
Orange supports immune system, combats cancer, protects heart and straightens respiration. Tomatoes protect prostate, combat cancer, lower cholesterol and protect heart.
Walnut lowers cholesterol, combats cancer, boosts memory, lifts mood and protects against heart disease. Watermelon protects prostate, promotes weight loss, lowers cholesterol, helps stop strokes and controls blood pressure.
Wheat germ combats colon cancer, prevents constipation, lowers cholesterol, helps stop strokes and improves digestion. Wheat bran combats colon cancer, prevents constipation, lowers cholesterol, helps stop strokes, and improves digestion.
Yoghurt guards against ulcers, strengthens bones and lowers cholesterol.
Increasing the intake of raw fruits, vegetables and specially sprouted seeds helps enhance and maintain good health, strengthens body’s automatic healing process, ward off future health problems and provides the body with vital nutrients, vitamins and minerals, which aid the body’s routine healing processes.
The sprouts are an excellent source of vitamin B and C, fibre, protein and contain important enzymes that aid digestion. Sprouts are the only form of agriculture that can be locally grown in all four seasons and offer the least expensive way to get healthy. Any kind of seed can be sprouted.
It is good to know that vitamin A, which is vital for good vision and resistance to infections, is found in milk, eggs, meat, fish, green leafy vegetables, carrots, yellow and orange fruit and vegetables.
