Constipation During Ramadan
Constipation is a common problem during Ramadan fasting, as changes in eating and drinking habits can affect digestion and bowel movements.
Some people may experience constipation during Ramadan fasting because they are not drinking enough fluids or eating enough fiber-rich foods. When the body does not receive enough fluids, it can lead to harder and dryer stools that are more difficult to pass.
To prevent constipation during Ramadan fasting, it is important to drink plenty of water and other fluids during non-fasting hours, such as during suhoor (pre-dawn meal) and iftar (evening meal). Eating fiber-rich foods, such as fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, can also help promote regular bowel movements.
In addition to these dietary changes, regular physical activity and exercise can also help prevent constipation during Ramadan fasting. Taking short walks or engaging in light exercise during non-fasting hours can help keep the digestive system moving and promote regular bowel movements.
