Okra is a healthy green vegetable with many other names like lady’s finger, bhindi and gombo.
It has several health benefits attributed to its superior fiber and mucilage content. These properties of Lady finger stabilize the blood sugar in a diabetic patient by controlling the rate at which sugar is absorbed from his intestinal tract.
This anti-diabetic activity of Okra (lady finger) is proved both in Vitro (Laboratory) and Vivo (animal) studies. Both the studies published in scientific journals showed a gradual decrease in blood glucose levels with regular feeding of Okra.
So if you are suffering from diabetes, it would be a good idea to check with your doctor and try this easy treatment at home.
If you have any problems with sugar then try eating okra (bhindi) for a month and see if you start feeling better! 🙂 and do not forget to share this healthy information with your friends and family!!!
