Contains oxidant: Okra water is a potent source of antioxidants, which can help reduce inflammation, fight free radicals, and lower the risk of chronic diseases like heart disease and diabetes.

Control blood sugar: Okra water may aid in maintaining healthy blood sugar levels by slowing sugar absorption, but further research is needed to fully comprehend its effects.

High fiber content : Okra water's high fibre content, particularly insoluble fibre, promotes healthy digestion and can prevent constipation and other digestive issues.
