The magnificent health benefits of the consumption of Okra

Something you don’t know about Okra

Modern medicine has indeed gone far. Far into the fact that it can save millions of lives, lives that would otherwise have been surely lost. Magnificent medical drugs have been made with the power to cure deadly diseases, and this should never be underestimated.

We are truly blessed to be living in the twenty-first century, a time when health care has never been so advanced.

okraBut, even though modern medicine has indeed gone a long way, it is not perfect. Not all diseases can be prevented, and not all diseases can be cured by laboratory made drugs. And it’s a question whether this will ever be the case.

So, by accepting the ingrained weakness of modern medicine, we accept the fact that there’s sometimes better options to look out for if you want to achieve optimal health and vitality.

And whatever your preconceived notions may be, we’re here to tell you that the best medicines are natural.
It’s been known since ancient times. Since the advancement of chemistry and chemically made drugs, people used herbs that they found in the wilderness to try and cure the most dangerous diseases they faced. And some of these herbs regrettably proved inefficient in the intention of curing disease. But some of them proved extremely efficient.

So what natural remedies can you use if you’re willing to live a healthy life?

One of the most potent natural remedies is the vegetable known as Okra. In fact, its scientific name is Abelmoschus Esculentus Moench. And in layman’s terms it’s known as “lady finger”.

What makes this plant so special?

Well, for one thing, it boasts tremendous power to improve one’s health, if consumed on a regular basis. As practically any fruit, it is cram packed with many useful vitamins and nutrients that will help turn your body into a powerhouse. Specifically, it’s full with the vitamins of the B-complex, including niacin, vitamin B6, thiamin and pantothenic acid.

Anyone with basic knowledge of nutrition knows that these are essential vitamins and they make possible the efficient functioning of the human organism. Also, there are reasonable amounts of vitamin K in it – yet another reason to make this plant a staple in your diet.

However, the most important aspect of the plant’s properties, is that of its breast cancer prevention and curing. There have been some studies that show that this wondrous plant kills up to 72% of breast cancer cells if consumed often enough.

It also slows the growth of the cancer, and these two effects combined make way for a longer life for those suffering this horrible disease, and even the curing of it.

However, because breast cancer, and any other cancer as well, is a serious disease, we cannot fully recommend this article for you. The first thing that you must do if you suffer from cancer is go see a doctor and follow his advice.

As professionals doctors are a lot more knowledgeable on the topic of cancer, and by following their advice your life will gain the best chance of being saved.

Either way, if you do decide to start consuming Okra, it will surely do you no harm. The only thing you stand to gain from its consumption is improved health and vitality.
