    5 Amazing Health Benefits Of Eating Okro Soup That You Never Know

    Okro has been known to be one of the most consumed vegetables and is also known for having a healthy amount of vitamin A, and flavonoid anti-oxidants like beta-carotene, xanthin, and lutein.

    Below are some interesting health benefits of okro that will make you want to include it in your daily diet.

    First, okra improves heart health conditions. According to studies, okra helps lowers the chances of cardiovascular diseases and this is as a result of the soluble fibre which is contained in the vegetable reducing cholesterol in the body.

    The vegetable is also known to contain pectin, known to reduce high blood cholesterol by making alterations to the creation of the bile in the intestine.

    Secondly, okro kills breast cancer cells. Breast cancer has been known to be one of the world’s leading causes of death in most women.

    Thirdly, okro helps prevent liver disease. The vitamin K in the vegetable helps to produce proteins that are known to be important in blood clotting. The protein also helps to break down old or damaged blood cells.

    According to a study, chemically-induced liver disease in rats was efficiently concentrated by okro and this helps with dealing with free radicals.
