 Soup is one of the most common types of soup in Africa, especially for older people. So in this article, I will talk about the best types of soups to eat more as you grow older.

 1. Okra soup


 Okra soup is known for its characteristic and many people like to eat okra soup. Studies have not said much about the soup during its preparation but it is the main ingredient which has been proven to have many benefits for the body.

 Studies show that melon seeds are a good source of protein, zinc, calcium, and fiber. It has also been shown to lower blood pressure, reduce the risk of diabetes, and promote better heart health.

 3. Edicikong Soup

 This is primarily a vegetable soup. It has been shown to be very good for the body in old age because of the abundance of vegetables.
