6 Confirmed Medicinal Values of Okra Vegetable

6 Confirmed Medicinal Values of Okra Vegetable

One of the early confusions I battled with as a child was that okra is a vegetable. I wondered what fruits were if okra qualifies as a vegetable. That was so many years ago.

Okra is a vegetable used to cook soup especially in West Africa in general and Nigeria in particular. The vegetable is rich in medicinal values and that is the crux of this post. We are going to discuss the medicinal benefits of the plant which you would be surprised to hear.

I have eaten okra of several preparations for an unbroken one year but that was not until I discovered the therapeutic and preventive potentials of the divine gift to mankind, okra.

1. Okra cures infertility in both men and women. The message is written all over the wall of okra that it cures infertility. It increases spermatozoa count in male. Human semen is slimy just like a typical okra fluid. Substantial consumption of okra quickens the production of semen. Above all, it strengthens men sexually. 

In women, it renders ovary productive. A dissection of an okra plant will reveal ova sticking to the ovary in a way similar to that of women. Okra helps ovary to produce as much eggs/ova as possible which are ready for fertilization.

2. Okra quickens digestion and eases defecation. Hard faeces could result in pile. Okra softens faeces for smooth passage via the anus. Indigestion quakes at the site of okra.

3. Okra keeps your colon clean and healthy because it contains fibre.

4. Research has also shown that it cures and prevents diabetes.

5. Okra makes you a better singer if you are interested in singing career. The secret of the voice of Celine Dion is an okra taken raw first thing every morning and flushed down with a glass of water.

6. Okra prevents rapid aging. It renders skin smooth and luxuriant.

Dear reader, it pays to eat Okra often; both cooked and raw.

RHINO WOUNDED BY POACHERS IN SOUTH AFRICA TO UNDERGO SKIN GRAFTING WITH AN ELEPHANT SKIN

A rhino severely wounded by poachers in the face is to undergo grafting with an elephant skin. 

Poachers shot the 12-year-old rhino on Aug. 5 at a wildlife park in South Africa's KwaZulu-Natal province.They were reported to have killed the calf of the rhino and shot the mother which fell down unconscious. Then, they began hacking off the horns which were actually what they wanted.

The rhino is named Ithemba, which means "hope" in Zulu, said Marais, who works for Saving the Survivors, an organization committed to rescuing and medically treating injured endangered species.

Marais described the attack on the endangered animal as a horrific injury.

Reports have it that poachers killed 1,200 rhinos in South Africa in 2014. 

This increasing spate of killings of the endangered species, rhino is attributable to the high demand of rhino horns in Asian continent where it is believed to have medicinal value and also a symbol of high social status.
