THE HEALTH BENEFITS OF OKRA:
- Prevents kidney stones.
- Controls diabetes.
- Reduces cholesterol.
- Boost the immune system.
- Eases asthma.
- Lowers the amount of glucose absorbed from food.
BOOSTS IMMUNE SYSTEM
Okra’s rich vitamin C content and antioxidant components also double as decent immune boosters against unsafe free radicals, while also supporting the immune system. Vitamin C stimulates the immune system to create more white blood cells, which can help battle other foreign pathogens and materials in the body.
PREVENTS KIDNEY DISEASE
Regularly eating okra can be helpful for preventing kidney disease. A 2005 study published in theJilin Medical Journal found patients who ate okra daily reduced clinical signs of kidney damage more than those who were on a diabetic diet. This is helpful since nearly half of kidney disease cases develop from diabetes.
Put a few okras (cut in pieces) in a glass and add lukewarm water. Leave the glass covered to sit overnight. Consume it 30 minutes before breakfast. This recipe can help you control your blood sugar levels and improve your overall health.
