|Onions Are A Super Food 4/27/2021|
1. Support Heart Health
Onions contain antioxidants that may support healthy cholesterol levels as well as help manage blood pressure, both of which may lower the risk of heart disease.2. Fight Oxidative Stress
Oions are an excellent antioxidant source, and in fact offer more than 25 different varieties of flavonoid antioxidants.3. Improve Skin and Hair Health
Onion extract gel may be useful for wound healing, showing promise in improving the cosmetic appearance of postsurgical scars. A study showed that it significantly improved scar softness, redness, texture, as well as appearance at the excision site at weeks four, six and 10 during the research.
Applied topically, crude onion juice may assist in hair regrowth compared to tap water, potentially serving as an effective topical therapy for patchy alopecia areata.
4. Provide Anticancer Benefits
Onions contain the flavonoid antioxidant quercetin, which may inhibit the growth of tumors. In a 2006 study, a uniquely large data set from southern European populations showed an inverse association between the frequent consumption of allium vegetables, particularly onions and garlic, and the risk of several common cancers.
5. Help Fight Diabetes
Consuming onions may also bring about helpful effects on diabetics by helping lower blood sugar levels. A study in 42 Type 2 diabetics, for instance, showed that consuming 3.5 ounces of fresh red onion decreased fasting blood sugar levels by 40 mg/dl after four hours.
Quercetin, combined with hesperidin, may also play an effective role in the regulation of insulin metabolism in diabetes. Justifying their strong antioxidant properties, garlic, white onion and purple onion display antidiabetes as well as antihypertensive properties.
Quercetin also shows promise for preventing neurodegeneration in diabetic retinopathy, a severe complication of the disease and a leading cause of blindness in adults worldwide. Discover additional onion health benefits and quercetin wellness benefits on GreenMedInfo.com."
And the good news is that all types of onions are on stage one of the KingSM Diet as described in chapter III of my book, How to Get Your Life Back from Morgellons, Chronic Lyme, and Other Skin Parasites.
