1. Rich in nutrients
Okra is an excellent source of vitamins C and K1. Vitamin C is a water-soluble nutrient that contributes to your overall immune function, while vitamin K1 is a fat-soluble vitamin that is known for its role in blood clotting (1, 2). In addition, okra is low in calories and carbohydrates, and low in protein and fiber. Many fruits and vegetables lack protein, which makes okra somewhat unique. Eating enough protein is associated with the benefits of weight control, blood sugar control, bone structure, and muscle mass (3, 4).
2. Contains beneficial antioxidants
Okra contains many antioxidants that benefit your health. Antioxidants are compounds in food that repel damage from harmful molecules called free radicals (5). The main antioxidants in okra are polyphenols, including flavonoids and isoquercetin, as well as vitamins A and C (6). Studies show that a diet rich in polyphenols can improve heart health by reducing the risk of blood clots and oxidative damage (7). Polyphenols can also benefit brain health because of their unique ability to enter your brain and protect against inflammation (8). These defense mechanisms can protect your brain from the symptoms of aging and improve cognition, learning, and memory (9).
3. Helps maintain blood sugar levels
Maintaining a healthy blood sugar level is very important for your overall health. Constantly elevated blood sugar can lead to prediabetes and type 2 diabetes. Studies in mice show that eating okra or okra extract can help lower blood sugar levels (10). In one study, rats given liquid sugar and purified okra had fewer blood sugar spikes than animals in the control group (11). Researchers have suggested that okra reduced the absorption of sugar in the digestive tract, leading to a more stable response to blood sugar (12). However, okra can interfere with metformin, a common diabetes medication. Therefore, eating okra is not recommended for those taking this drug (13).
