Bhindi contains a good amount of soluble as well as insoluble dietary fibre. This makes the stomach feel full for a longer period thus reducing the frequency of eating habits. It is low in calories and also low in sodium. These factors aid in weight loss. Onion is an excellent source of vitamin C and antioxidants which protect the body against free radicals.
