I've discovered and been doing a lot of research with the vegetable okra helping to maintain and even lower blood glucose. We are supposed to cut the bottoms off 2 okra "fingers," slit down the middle and let soak in room temperature water overnight. Drinking the water in the morning (30 min prior to eating/drinking) supposed to help with glucose not being absorbed. Apparently it's the fiber in the "slime" the vegetable puts into the water.
Has anyone else heard of this or tried it? My BG is very well under control and know that I should discuss this with my doctor and not substitute this finding with my current medication.. But am very very curious..
