Easy Way to Control Sugar with Okra

 


Bhindi, commonly known as okra, is a fantastic source of both soluble and insoluble fiber, which takes time to break down and digest. This makes it a great choice for diabetes because it is also high in antioxidants.

Elevated blood sugar levels are a symptom of diabetes. It is currently one of the metabolic illnesses that is most common worldwide. Diabetes patients must be particularly careful about what they put on their plates. Recently, researchers have learned that many fruits and vegetables naturally fight diabetes. Okra, often known as our own bhindi, is one among them. Okra is described as “a rich source of many nutrients, including fiber, vitamin B6, and folate” in the book “Healing Foods” by DK Publishing House.

B vitamins lower homocysteine levels, a risk factor for diabetic neuropathy, and decrease the progression of the condition. The soluble fiber also aids in sugar stabilization. Vegetable consumption of okra is very common in India. With chapatis, it is prepared using a variety of spices. Who knew it may aid in managing diabetes symptoms as well? Let’s investigate it further.

Both soluble and insoluble fiber are abundant in bhindi. The digestion and degradation of fiber takes time. Due to its slower rate of breakdown, it releases sugar into the bloodstream very gradually, preventing a spike in blood sugar levels. One of the rare veggies that is also high in protein is okra. It’s common advice for diabetics to maintain a diet high in protein since it keeps them full and helps them from bingeing on other sugary foods.

Okra has a very low-calorie content. Bhindi has fewer than 33 calories per 100 grammes. Weight gain is one of the common issues that diabetics have. Bhindi is a food that promotes good weight management. Bhindi helps keep you full for a long time and reduces cravings because it is strong in fiber.
