Although most people fast for spiritual purification at this time, there’s a scientific explanation to it as well. Navratri coincides with the changing seasons, a time when the body’s immunity is low and people are more likely to fall ill. Avoiding rich foods and detoxing with ingredients that are light, easy-to-digest and full of nutrients such as protein and fiber is the best way to prepare your body for the transition.
