“[…] Its activity as proportional to glibenclamide indicated by no difference statistically compared to the glibenclamide.
They concluded: “Based on the profile of blood glucose levels in the oral glucose tolerance test, okra fruit juice had the activity to reduce blood glucose levels at doses 25, 50, 100 and 200 mg/kg BW in normal animals, so it was concluded that it had anti-diabetic potential.”
Separate studies conducted in India have supported these findings, noting a gradual fall in blood glucose after okra intake.
Published in the Journal of Pharmacy & BioAllied Science, researchers found that mice who were fed dried and ground okra peels experienced a gradual reduction in blood glucose following a regular intake of okra for about 10 days.
