Someone posted this article and photo on Facebook about okra being a cure for diabetes. As it is such a troublesome disease, I decided to research whether or not this is true.
Out of all the vegetables in the world, why would okra be the one to offer a cure for diabetes? I am not a fan of okra. It does not sound good, nor does it smell good when cooking. My family did not eat okra, as my mother never cooked it for us. It was not until I visited the family of a friend in the back hills of Alabama, that I learned what okra was.
It is a vegetable which has its origin in Africa and grows primarily in the southern United States. It is also known as “gumbo” and is a member of the Hibiscus family. It is high in Vitamin A, stabilizes blood sugar, and binds cholesterol and toxins in the large intestine. If used over several months, it has been known to cure some of diabetes.
Whether or not you believe it, it is worth a try!
