This video is presented by Merciful Servants explains you about the breakdown of what happens to your body when you fast in each stage of the 30 days of fasting during Ramadan.

Stage 1
During the first couple of days of fasting, both blood sugar level and blood pressure drop. The body starts the cleansing process and the first few days are the hardest as they are usually accompanied with headaches, dizziness, nausea and intense hunger.

Stage 4
During the last 10 days of fasting in Ramadan, the body has become accustomed to the fasting process. Your body becomes more energetic and you experience improved memory and concentration.
