Okra Controls Diabetes and Hunger, Lowers Cholesterol And Removes Fatigue

Native to Ethiopia, okra, Hibiscus esculentus, or also known as kiabo, lady’s fingers, gumbo or okro, is a powerful natural greenish herb that effectively treats numerous health issues and ailments.

According to Dr.Mercola:

“Okra is the color of a fresh corn husk, has the shape of a spike (which is why it’s also known as lady’s fingers and, in some cultures, bamia pods) and the texture of a grooved cucumber. Sliced, it might remind you of a tiny star fruit.

Okra pods measuring 2 to 3 inches long grow on a large, leafy and perennial plant with beautiful, hibiscus-type flowers. From the Malvaceae (mallows) family — surprisingly along with cocoa, hibiscus and cotton — it bears the botanical name Abelmoschus esculentus and may have a history as old as the pyramids.”

It is a rich source of numerous nutrients, and thus offers countless health benefits, like:

-- It prevents food cravings

-- Strengthens immunity

-- Regulates cholesterol levels

-- Prevents kidney disease

-- Controls diabetes and reduces fasting glucose levels

-- Improves skin and hair health

Okra is a real natural miracle, so why don’t you start using it and reap all its health benefits?
