Okra, better known as Lady’s Finger or gumbo, has been around for a long time.  Over 3,500 years ago, this tropical vegetable was loved, and used, by the ancient Egyptians and today, it’s still enjoyed by many,  both as a tasty vegetable and for its health benefits.

Before we tell you about this interesting vegetable, just a quick note, we’d appreciate if you’d please subscribe to our channel if you haven’t already done so.  We’re all about natural home remedies and are excited to be able to share tips with you!

So let’s start:

1 Okra is a fibre-rich vegetable that enhances the digestive system; it helps ease proper bowel movements for regularity and there are less issues with bloating, cramping and excess gas, and here’s a good thing, it also helps to prevent constipation.

2 Antioxidants are helpful when it comes to fighting off free radicals and okra’s high vitamin C content assists in boosting the immune system.  This particular vitamin stimulates the immune system to create more white blood cells, handy for fighting off other foreign pathogens & materials in the body that can put the immune system at risk.

3 Okra is abundant in vitamins and minerals, including potassium, which helps to relax the blood vessels and arteries, therefore reducing blood pressure and putting less strain on the cardiovascular system.

4 Vitamin A antioxidants protect skin health by reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, acne and scars.  They fight free radicals so they can’t do any more damage and even better, they repair damage already done to cells!

5 The benefits for your hair are considerable!  Taking tired and lifeless hair and giving it back some ‘bounce’, conditioning and moisturizing your hair and leaving it feeling soft!  Okra also fights dandruff and improves the overall scalp condition, and to top it all off, it gives your hair a beautiful shine, naturally!

These are only some of the health benefits of okra.  We’ll cover more of them in another video so keep a watch out for it.  You can consume this vegetable in a number of ways.  Coated with seasoned flour or corn meal and fried is one way.
