Fasting is a good way to gain health benefits apart from receiving the divine grace of your worshipped deity. It helps to cleanse and detoxify your body and giving rest to its vital systems. The benefits of fasting are purification of the gastro-intestinal tract, cleansing of the surrounding organs and balancing of the metabolic constituents. The gastric juices work to remove cholesterol from your system instead of digesting food during fasting. The rest to the intestines and related organs enable them to function better later.

These can be flushed out by antioxidants in the gastro-intestinal tract.
