This vegetable is full of vitamins and minerals that have a lot of health benefits and disease prevention.
It is also known as lady finger, bhindi and gumbo. Okra is a nutritional power used throughout history for medicinal and culinary purposes. Once loved by the Egyptians and still used in many dishes today, this pod-producing, tropical vegetable can be traced back more than 3,500 years. Okra is known for its high content of vitamin C, vitamin K and folate. In addition, okra is known to take advantage of a superior fiber, which helps with digestion, stabilizes blood sugar and helps control the speed at which sugar is absorbed. But there is much more in okra.
Steps to prepare okra water:
1. Take two okra pods and cut their ends.
2. The sticky liquid will exude once you slit the pod. Do not wash it.
3. Take a full glass of water and drop these pods on it at night and cover with a dish.
4. In the morning, remove the pods and drink the water in the glass.
You have to prepare okra water daily and drink daily in the morning to control your raised blood sugar level. It is important to keep in mind that okra water helps cure diabetes much better than okras cooked. It is okay to add okra to your curries and soups, but take raw okra soaked in water for a faster recovery of raised blood sugar levels.
