DIABETES LIFE EP1

Okra is gaining a reputation as a superfood for people at the risk of diabetes just like me. Commonly referred to as ladyfingers, or by its biological names Abelmoschus esculentus and Hibiscus esculentus.

Boiled Okra with chopped ginger, sliced tomatoe and red onions seasoned with fish sauce made my dinner complete and satisfied. As you could see I often eat okra. Because okra is a rich source of dietary fibre, believing that okra is known to be beneficial for health in a number of ways. The superior insoluble fibre contained in okra is believed to help stabilise blood glucose by slowing the rate at which sugar is absorbed from the intestinal tract. That’s sounds good for diabetes, isn’t it?
While in Turkey roasted okra seeds have been used as a traditional diabetes medicine for generations.
