Hibiscus esculentus, commonly known as okro, gumbo, kiabo, or lady fingers, is a powerful natural greenish herb that is native to Ethiopia and effectively treats a wide range of health problems.
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 Controls Diabetes and Hunger, Lowers Cholesterol And Removes Fatigue
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
