There are studies which have suggested that Fasting Ramadan (a form of Intermittent Fasting Diet) helps the whole body get ready for conceiving. This is through detoxification, enhancing quality of sperms in men, and regulating ovulation in women, creating a perfect environment for conception. Fasting sets the scene for the body to balance its hormones while maximising the liver’s ability to do its cleansing job. It also allows burning of excess fat and lowering stress levels, all of which could be damaging to human reproductive ability. It has also therefore been suggested that fasting increases fertility in women and boosts their chances of conception. Other researchers have even claimed prevention of age-related decline in egg quality and quantity in other species with caloric restriction.
