Lady's Finger...

Lady's Finger...not humans' but vegetables'. I love to eat Lady Finger diced and fried with sambal. I love Curry Fishhead, filled with Lady Fingers, Tomatoes, Brinjal and curry leaves. However not I do not know that Lady Finger have other medicinal values. Below is an article sent to me. I see no harm in sharing as this is a vegetable. As many people are down with diabetes, hope this simple and cheap method helps. Worth a try!

Another name for Lady Finger (Bhindi) is 'OKRA '. It helps in the sugar balance and in the treatment of Diabetes. Suggestion :

Take two pieces of Lady Finger and cut both ends of each piece. Put a small cut in the middle and put these two pieces in glass of water. Cover the glass and keep it at room temperature over night. Early morning (empty stomach), removed two pieces of lady finger from the glass and drink the water. Keep doing it on a daily basis. Within two weeks, you will see remarkable results in reduction of your SUGAR.

A friend's sister got rid of her diabetes. She was on Insulin for a few years but after taking lady fingers every morning for a few months, she has stopped Insulin and continue to take lady fingers daily. It is with perseverence that you will see results.

This plant is primarily employed as a vegetable - its pods, seeds, leaves, and shoots, as well as the outer cover of the flowers (calyx) are all eaten as boiled greens. Okra seeds contain protein as well as oil possessing qualities like those of olive oil. The standard is excellent. The seeds produce protein and oil in good quantities. One experiment in Puerto Rico documented yields of 612 kg per hectare oil and 658 kg per hectare protein. Such quantities rival those of other oil-and-protein crops of both temperate and tropical zones.

Like soybean, the seed provides excellent vegetable protein for uses including full- and fat-free meals, flours, protein concentrates and isolates, cooking oils, lecithin, and nutraceuticals (foods with functional health benefits). Okra protein is both rich in tryptophan and adequate in sulfur-containing amino acids, a rare combination that gives it exceptional power to reduce human malnutrition. In addition, byproducts such as hulls and fiber can be used for animal feeds.
