OKRA DRESSING TO CATCH BLEEDING: Okra, a tropical plant widely used in African recipes, can work wonders medicinally. Malcolm Xing of the University of Manitoba in Canada examined the green, sticky vegetable and found that the dried juice of okra can be pulverized and turned into a bioadhesive gel. Used during surgery, this gel can stop bleeding when applied like a natural bandage.

The okra gel has already been tested on the heart and liver of dogs and rabbits and stopped bleeding within a minute without the need for stitches. Human trials are planned for the next few years.
