Okra is a supreme vegetable for those feeling exhausted or weak, and those suffering from depression. It may also be beneficial in preventing cataracts. As a superior source of fiber, okra helps to control blood cholesterol and blood sugar. Okra fiber is excellent for feeding the good bacteria (probiotics) that aid digestion. This contributes to the health of the intestinal tract. Okra is also used for healing ulcers and to keep joints limber. It helps to neutralize acids, being very alkaline, and it provides a temporary protective coating for the digestive tract. Okra is also known to counter the expansion of some cancers, especially colo-rectal. Further, eating okra regularly may relieve pulmonary inflammation, sore throat, and irritable bowel syndrome.
