The health benefits of onions have been known for over 5000 years and they've been used to cure virtually everything under the sun.

In the last few years much research has gone into the health benefits of onions, and guess what?

Studies after studies have confirmed that onions indeed possess many active compounds that have been proven beneficial for all sorts of health problem.

Quick Serving Suggestions

Onions Nutritional Highlights Onions are a very good source of vitamin C, B6, biotin, chromium, calcium and dietary fibre.

In addition, onions contain good amounts of folic acid and vitamin B1 and K.

A 100 gram serving provides 44 calories, mostly as complex carbohydrate, with 1.4 grams of fibre.

Like garlic, onions also have the enzyme alliinase, which is released when an onion is cut or crushed and it causes your eyes to water.

They also contain flavonoids, which are pigments that give vegetables their colour. These compounds act as antioxidants, have a direct antitumor effect and have immune-enhancing properties. Onions, Rich Source of Quercitin The onion is the richest dietary source of quercitin, a potent antioxidant (also in shallots, yellow and red onions only but not in white onions), which is specifically linked to inhibiting human stomach cancer.

Quercitin in onions also thins the blood, lowers cholesterol, raises good-type HDL cholesterol (preferred dose: half a raw onion a day), wards off blood clots, fight asthma, chronic bronchitis, hay fever, diabetes, atherosclerosis and infections.

It's also an anti-inflammatory, antibiotic, antiviral, thought to have diverse anti-cancer powers. Quercitin is also a sedative. So far, there is no better food source of quercitin than onion skins. Detoxify Your Body with Onions http://www.foods-healing-power.com/health-benefits-of-onions.html
