Okra, a popular vegetable in the Southern U.S. and Middle East, is a powerful immune boosting food that can help your body resist disease and maintain overall good health. In fact, studies using okra pods have shown that compounds in the vegetable can increase white blood cell counts in the spleen and trigger the secretion of infection-fighting cytokines. These findings point to the need for more studies on the polysaccharides in this green vegetable as a possible immunomodulator.
- Okra is a valuable culinary additive, as it is prevalent in both Middle Eastern and U.S. Southern cuisine.
- A dampening of the immune system, or immunosuppression can occur with the taking of various pharmaceuticals.
- It's purported that okra is a source of natural immunomodulators that can boost and restore human immune levels.
"Based on these findings, the polysaccharides in okra should be investigated for future use as natural immunomodulators."
