Native to Ethiopia, okra, Hibiscus esculentus, or also known as kiabo, lady’s fingers, gumbo or okro, is a powerful natural greenish herb that effectively treats numerous health issues and ailments.
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 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
— Prevents gastritis and constipation
— Treats fatigue and boosts the energy levels
— Prevents brittle bones
— Lowers the risk of osteoporosis

— Stops the bleeding
