Hi everyone, I don't know if any one knows this that Okra is suppose to lower your sugar levels down. I just started it today and it is real simple to do. You just take Okra (a few pieces of it) and cut of the ends of it and then stick them into a glass of water and put it in the fridge over night and first thing in the morning take the Okra out and drink the water. It has natural enzyme's to help diabetes and lower and or take away the use of Metformin / insulin completely over an amount of time. Just thought I would share this information to HELP out everyone.

Just want to say that I've been hearing alot of good things about it from family and friends so I decided to try it. besides its just another vegetable and its cheap so it can't hurt to try it. I will have my blood test in a month and I will see if their is any difference but I'm still taking my meds. This is my third day and I will post in the process.

Thanks everyone for your input on it and now that I have found out that it DOES NOT REALLY HELP ! I really won't bother with the idea of drinking it everyday. I have no problem drinking water so I will stick to it.

Everyone has been talking about that. I didn't know a friend on facebook husband is diabetic and he started doing this 6 months ago. It didn't work for him nor any of his diabetic friends. One of his friends said his wife started cooking the okra and he had some everyday for about a month and it helped some but it wasn't any big change. She said she told him to stop falling for all the fads. He even tried the cinnamon thing and that didn't do much. Hope it works for you.

Well that sounds good Trudie Ann just the directions of it says to cut the ends off and just a few and leave it in a glass of water over night and take them out and drink the water by itself. Which Gabby yes I did try it today and it was ok just I have no idea about my levels as the doctor never told me to purchase a meter or anything except the pills which I did find out that here in SC the Publix grocery store gives those out with a prescription from the doctor free so I won't have to pay for them. Which is good being it adds up after a while.

Wow, they really give them to you, that's awesome. My co-pay is very much but it does add up. Okra isn't in season here right now, but I will try it when it is, both in my juice and the water recipe you posted here.

I love okra, but I have never tried or heard of this. I love it fried out of course I'm not supposed to eat much fried food any more. I also love it boiled, in stews, soups, gumbo, whole or sliced. I have never tried raw okra fixed any way. I wonder if it would be good if I threw some in my juice machine with my apple, orange, celery and carrot drink that I fix every day?

There were a bunch of discussions on it of late. Did you try it? Did it work for you? Everyone had been taking about it, but I am curious what it may have done for any of us here.
