This vegetable plant originated back in the 12th century in Egypt but nowadays, Okra grows in tropical areas all over the world. It offers several health benefits and it can be prepared in many different ways. Despite its slimy texture, a lot of people love it because of the many advantages it offers.
Okra’s nutritional information is amazing. 100 grams of this vegetable contains only 30 calories, 76 grams of carbohydrates, 3 grams of fibers, 2 grams of protein, 21 grams of vitamin C, and a decent amount of magnesium folate. It contains antioxidants, which are great for all those who suffer from kidney diseases and liver damage. Okra can also help lower blood sugar levels and can even fight depression, reduce asthma symptoms, and eradicate breast cancer cells, according to recent studies.

Legumes and Beans
Recipes that can cure diabetes have long been around, with some dating back from the ancient times. However, pharmacies have spent millions trying to make these natural remedies disappear especially since everyone one knows that diabetes is hard to treat. Of course, it’s also true that some of the ancient treatments contained uranium and arsenic but there were natural remedies that contained powerful antidiabetic properties. The problem with today’s so-called treatments like the insulin shots is that they have adverse side effects like swelling, weight gain, and even liver disease.
Apart from lifestyle changes, which several experts say must be done to fight diabetes, eating more legumes can also help. They can lower insulin resistance and help regulate your blood sugar levels. An analysis of 42 studies in Canada supported the claim of the legume’s efficiency in stabilizing blood sugar levels. However, a few of the pulses (the grain seed of legumes) offered much better results than the other ones. Chickpeas gave excellent results while pistos and black beans offered better results compared to plain beans.
Meanwhile, dark and red beans weren’t as effective as the others because of their low digestive starch content. Beans are excellent natural remedies against diabetes because of the compounds they contain which could prevent starch enzymatic digestion in one’s body, letting starches reach the colon and serve as food to the body’s beneficial bacteria. Its ability to block amylase enzyme is exactly what the a certain diabetic drug known as Precose does. You can also keep haemoglobin A1C levels in normal ranges by consuming beans regularly.
Bananas, Apples, Kiwis, and Kale
Did you know that a simple all-natural drink can help deal with hypertension and diabetes? All you need is a blender, five bananas, two apples, two kiwis, and a handful of kale. Blend the ingredients along with half liter of water. Starting drinking the juice during the morning and finish it throughout the day. Increase your fruit, vegetable, and tuna intake for better results. This drink will not only keep your blood sugar level normal but it will also help you lose weight.
Stinging nettle is a plant that has fine hairs on its leaves and stem. It releases an irritating chemical that causes pain when it comes in contact with the skin. So, these tiny spins or hairs make stinging nettle painful to the touch. But did you know that this plant has been long used to treat various health conditions like anemia, arthritis, eczema, and painful joints and muscles? It can also be used to treat early stage urinary problems.
It is also an effective natural treatment or respiratory problems like asthma, sore throats, and pneumonia. According to a recent study, stinging nettle can also be used to treat prostate cancer when taken in capsules twice a day or 120 grams of dry nettle root.
Because it contains anti-bacterial properties, nettle is good for the skin. It can be used as an astringent especially by those who are suffering from acne or those who have marks due to herpes. Nettle is a diuretic plant, which makes it a good treatment for urinary tract infection. It helps get rid of fluids through the urine and also helps the bacteria be flushed out of the body through the urine. It can also be used to prevent kidney stones.
Nettle is also effective at fighting hair loss and dandruff. It can help make your hair look shiny and healthy. Nettle is also an anti-atherosclerotic plant thanks to the high amount of chlorophyll which it contains. It can boost the circulatory system and reduce blood sugar levels.
